AAA - Buffalo Bisons (3-7)_______________________________________

GAME ONE: ROCHESTER 3, BISONS 1 (Box): The Dominican Republic this isn't. Jenrry struggled to get a handle on the snowball baseball in 35 degree weather and walked a quartet of batters in the first igloo inning. But when Mejia got his pitches working -- not only the cutter, but a change and a big sweeping curve -- he fanned six and looked nasty. You might have seen the game on MLB Network; what did you think? Red Wings won.

GAME TWO: ROCHESTER 2, BISONS 0 (Box). Not too notable, this one, so I'll mention that my old man followed the Red Wings growing up. When the team was away, the radio broadcaster sat in Rochester and called the play-by-play from a ticker tape feed. You could hear the clickety-clack in the background, but he still called it like he was field-side.

AA - Binghamton Mets (4-6)_____________________________________

POSTPONED DUE TO RAIN: Bingo will make it up with the Sea Dogs as part of a double header on July 5th.


Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (11-2)________________________________________

ST. LUCIE 11, FORT MYERS 2 (Box); Can any team be this good? Canadian oldster Jason Bay started it off with a two-run shot in the first, prompting cries of "No fair!" from Fort Myers, who started looking around for another dad. But the kids hit too, piling on four runs in the eighth even after this one had become a laugher. St. Lucie is four games on top of the FSL. Look at all the hits:

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (5-7)__________________________________

LEXINGTON 2, SAVANNAH 0 (Box): Ryan Fraser is the bright spot here. The twenty-two year old's line isn't spectacular but he's doing a fine job in a starting role after stellar relief work last year in Brooklyn (1.44 ERA and 11.20 K/9). Ryan throws a high-nineties fastball and will probably be a Parnell-like reliever down the line, but so far in two starts he has eight strikeouts and three walks in thirteen innings. So nice job, Ryan.

★ Star of the Night ★

Jason Bay went 4-4 with two bombs and a walk and chased four batters home. Remarkably, Major League Expectancy for a 32-year-old in A ball with those numbers suggests a line of .267/.384/.537 with 36 HR... Bay's 2009 numbers exactly. Forget last year, buddy. I'm cheering you in person on Thursday.


Goat of the Night

Cesar Puello went 0-5 with two strike outs and was the lone man not hitting in St. Lucie. The Amazin' Avenue Annual's #8 prospect has struggled in the young season, with a .200/.241/.220 line before tonight's 0-fer. Oddly, he's also 2-5 in SB attempts after a 82% rate last season.
