  • RP Ryan Fraser: 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 0 K (2-1, 0.41, 22 IP, 8 H, 11 BB, 28 K, 0 HR) Anyone who watched the game on Thursday knows this kid has got a big league arm and eight hits over 22 IP ain't bad either 
  • Rosters for the Aug. 17th NYPL All-Star Game were released yesterday and surprise, surprise, the Cyclones lead the league with eight players (and one manager) representing them.  Of course we've got the Magnificent Three (Ceciliani, Vaughn & Sandoval), the two solid corner infielders 1B Jeff Flagg & 3B/DH Joe Bonfe, the flamethrowing RHP Ryan Fraser, and the righty/lefty duo at the top of the rotation LHP Angel Cuan & RHP Yohan Almonte.  Not to mention Wallyball himself.

RK Kingsport (21-23)

RK GCL Mets (20-18)

  • Rained Out

Star of the Night

Not a ton of outstanding performances last night but I'm gonna go with Binghamton's CF Sean Ratliff off his 2-for-4 with a double and a bomb, his 17th overall in 2010.  Back in center field, Ratliff's prospect stock would really take off if he proves he can stick there for the long term.

After a sensational return that included seven bombs, a .378 average and an Eastern League Player of the Week award, 3B Zack Lutz was due for a dud and his 0-for-4 with four strikeouts tonight fits the bill.  And policy dictates that a Golden Sombrero earns you the Goat of the Night.


System Roundup

  • The Bisons won their third straight in this 6-2 victory over Columbus.  We saw the good RHP Dillon Gee in this one as he went seven strong innings, striking out nine Clippers.  Gee has struck out five or more hitters in eight of his last nine starts and for all the talk about his low ceiling and lack of stuff, people don't give him enough credit when it comes to missing bats.  As for the offense, they pulled ahead for good with five runs over the last three innings, including 1B Nick Evans first Triple-A bomb of 2010.  Boxscore
  • RHP Jenrry Mejia set the tone early in this 5-1 B-Mets victory over Trenton.  The kid with the electric arm was once again dominant, holding the Thunder scoreless over the first 4+ innings. The Binghamton 'pen followed suit as the next three pitchers allowed just one run.  As for the hitters, CF Sean Ratliff knocked in a couple runs with a double and a solo bomb as he begins to heat up once again (batting .500 over his last three games).    Boxscore
  • Much like former teammates Mark Cohoon and Brandon Moore, LHP Jim Fuller found the going a little rougher at a higher level in this 6-4 St. Lucie loss to Tampa.  After skating through the first three, Fuller was hit hard for five runs in the fourth.  The Mets batters managed only four hits and couldn't ever make up that deficit.  But on the bright side, they did manage three runs off of Yankees stud prospect Dellin Betances who has a 1.60 ERA in 2010, hasn't allowed a run in his last 13 innings and hadn't allowed more than two runs in a start this season.  Boxscore
  • In game one of their Saturday doubleheader, the Gnats were shutout 7-0 by the River Dogs.  This one was over early as starter RHP Armando Rodriguez had probably his worst start of the season, allowing seven runs in under four innings.  To make matters worse, the Savannah offense managed just four hits, none with RISP.  Boxscore  The Gnats had a much better showing in game two on Saturday, taking Charleston 4-1.  The tables were turned in this one as it was the River Dogs who managed just three hits off of big lefty Darin Gorski and two Gnats relievers.  In fact the only Charleston run scored off a 3B James Schroeder throwing error in the fifth.  Meanwhile the Gnats offense came around once the sun went down as three Savannah hitters went for multiple hits, including CF RJ Harris who also hit a 3-run bomb.  Somehow RF Cesar Puello went hitless for the entire day.  Boxscore
  • Brooklyn just refuses to lose.  Last night they trailed going into the ninth when LF Will Cherry tied it up with his second bomb of the year, bringing this one into extras.  And then in the 11th, 3B Brian Harrison doubled (having already homered), helping Brooklyn finish off the Connecticut Tigers 3-2.  Tons of credit goes to the pitching staff here who, aside from a couple of unearned runs in the sixth, held the Tigers lineup completely scoreless for thirteen innings.  Boxscore
  • After a first inning error led to two unearned runs, RHP Michael Hebert threw his best game of the season, keeping the Tigers scoreless over the next seven innings and eventually leading the K-Mets to a 6-2 victory.  No standout offensive performances but a nice 3-for-4 with RISP was all they'd need in this one.  Boxscore
  • Like the last game, the GCL Nats somehow managed to survive six errors and edged the Mets 4-3.  Not many big hits aside from rehabbing 3B Eric Campbell's RBI double for the Mets in this one as 2010 OF draftees CF Matt Den Dekker and LF Tillman Pugh were quiet.  The Mets were still leading into the ninth but 2010 28th round draftee out of Duke RHP Jeremy Gould blew this one in walk-off fashion.  Boxscore
