AAA - Buffalo Bisons (9-12)_______________________________________


Wedged squarely between the disappointment of the Sabres first round loss to the Flyers and the inevitable disappointment of the NFL draft in Buffalo (please don't pick Cam Newton...), the Bisons had the opportunity to steal the spotlight for a night heading out to play their local rivals just 60 miles up the road in Rochester.  They jumped out to a two run lead following an RBI single from Jesus Feliciano in the third and a solo shot from the Duda in the fourth.  The Rochester pitching would silence the Bison bats from that point on, however, and Rochester rallied for a 3-2 win.  All three Bisons on longer hitting streaks (Tejada, Hernandez, Capt. Kirk) saw their respective streaks end last night.  Ronny Paulino also had a poor night at the plate as he gets ready to join the big club.  All in all, this game was exactly the opposite of the thriller we got to witness at the big league level last night.  If you happen to be attending tonight's rematch, at least there will be cheap beer and tickets.

AA - Binghamton Mets (6-10)_____________________________________


We saw more of the 2010 Brad Holt tonight than the 2008, 2009 version we'd been seeing so far this season as he allowed all sorts of baserunners in a very short outing.  Eddie Kunz Allan Dykstra tried to single handedly keep the B-Mets in this one, but Portland smartly turned on the fog machine so the game was called in the 7th ensuring the win.  Strange Note: This was the first game since June 26, 2007 that the Bingo staff did not record a strikeout.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (18-3)________________________________________


None of our top pitching prospects were going last night in Florida, but the St. Lucie offense doesn't seem to need pitching this season (we might as well try out Nick Evans on the mound in that case).  Juan Lagares and Matt den Decker led the way, but the rest of the Mets offense chipped in as well (and they got plenty of help from the opposing defense) to ensure the win.  Francisco Pena continues to look like an actual prospect at the plate this season, here's hoping he keeps it up.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (7-12)__________________________________


It was a relatively uneventful game in Savannah, with both Gnats runs coming by way of the long ball.  Eric Goeddel pitched well enough for the Gnats to hang around, but it's hard to expect too many runs when four of your starters are batting under the Mendoza line on the season. Also, Orioles super-prospect SS Manny Machado teed off for his second home run of this series.

 Star of the Night 

Has to be Allan Dykstra tonight.  He was exceptional in an otherwise lousy game for Binghamton.  It would sure be nice to actually look back on that trade (or any trade for that matter) in a few seasons and see a clear win.

Goat of the Night

Toss up between Brad Holt and the Bisons offense.  I'll give it to Holt this evening just because I was starting to expect good things from him again.
