Mets Daily Farm System Report - 4/13

*All results from games played on Wednesday, April 13th 2011

AAA - Buffalo Bisons (4-3)_______________________________________


It was a quick night for the herd, as Mejia set the tone early for Buffalo who cruised to the victory.  The defense was sloppy with the cold wet weather, but Mejia limited the damage by holding the Yankees to just 3 groundball singles in his 6 2/3 innings.  Buffalo only managed 1 extra base hit in the contest to go with 11 singles and 3 walks.  A string of singles in the Buffalo 6th led to most of the offense tonight, but with the way the Bison pitchers were going that easily held up.

AA - Binghamton Mets (2-4)_____________________________________


No game tonight for the B-Mets, as it was rained out

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (6-1)________________________________________


Familia was solid again, showing the stuff that has so many of us high on his future.  He's now allowed 2 hits while putting up a 13/2 K/BB ratio in his 13 innings pitched this year. He cruised through 6 innings and handed the ball off to Eric Beaulac, who immediately let the Miracle back into the game.  No worries though, as Wilmer Flores came through in the 9th with an RBI single to break the tie for St. Lucie.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (1-5)__________________________________


Savannah took a 5-4 lead into the 9th inning yesterday, but closer Gabriel Zavala hit a batter, walked a batter, and allowed a three run blast to end the game in disappointment for the Gnats. First baseman Sam Honeck raised his batting average to .476 on the early season by going 3 for 4 with a walk to lead the Gnats offense.  Cory Vaughn had himself an excellent night as well.

★ Star of the Night ★

Tough call on this one for me between Familia and Mejia.  Both were excellent, but Mejia will get the nod for striking out blue chip DH prospect Jesus Montero twice in his outing.  Having to make tough decisions about which of our top pitching prospects threw the better of several excellent performances is a problem I hope to have every Thursday morning.  Cory Vaughn gets an honorable mention today as well.

Goat of the Night

My goat for the night would likely have a line like 0-5 with a strikeout in Buffalo, while stranding a pair in scoring position and ending a rally with a double play.  Like the Mets management for the last several years though, I'm not entirely convinced that this particular player exists.  I guess that means we just won't have a goat for last night.
