AAA - Buffalo Bisons (15-19)_______________________________________


Chris Schwinden worked through 5 relatively uneventful innings before running into some trouble in the 6th.  After walking the leadoff batter and giving up a few hits it looked like the Bisons were in trouble.  No worries though, as Captain Kirk did this and then Bobby Parnell came in to blow away the only batter he'd face and put out the fire.  The bullpen was solid for the rest of the game, and the offense did just enough to scratch out the win.

AA - Binghamton Mets (12-18)_____________________________________


14 hits and 6 walks was a good showing by the B-Mets offense, and most nights that would be good enough for the win.  It's certainly nice to look at a box score where everybody reaches base at least once.  Brandon Moore wasn't good though, putting the Mets in a position where the bullpen had to work almost 7 innings.  To their credit, the bullpen did an admirable job and let the Mets crawl back into the game, but you're not going to win too many games that you trail 9-1 in the bottom of the third.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (22-11)________________________________________


Like Binghamton, the St. Lucie offense was very good on the whole last night with Matt den Dekker challenging for star of the night honors.  Also like Binghamton, every batter got an base at least once.  Kyle Allen had control issues on the night, walking 6 batters and firing 2 wild pitches in his 5 innings of work.  It could have been ugly, but he spread those walks and wild pitches out over the whole of the evening and didn't allow many balls to be hit hard.  It's hard to fathom how he managed to keep any runs from crossing the plate, but it's been that kind of year for St. Lucie so far.  Too bad that kind of luck doesn't seem to affect the rest of the organization.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (15-17)__________________________________


If Darrell Ceciliani had reached base, it would have been 3-4 with affiliates getting every single batter on base at least once.  It was a rough night for Darrell though, as he continues to struggle with full season ball still hitting south of the Mendoza line.  The good news is that he's getting lonely there finally, as three of his teammates (Rodriguez, Cordero, Forsythe) have finally raised their batting averages over .200 for the season.  Cory Vaughn continued to show he's able to get on base even if his power seems to have disappeared for now, and he seems to be getting hit by pitches in almost every write up I do.

 Star of the Night 

There was lots of good performances but no great ones on the evening.  The star of the night for me has to be Ruben Tejada, who has done nothing at all to hurt his stock with his performance so far this season.  It's easy to write him off as a non-prospect because of the lack of elite tools, but it's hard to argue with that kind of production in AAA from a kid that won't turn 21 until after the season.

Goat of the Night

Like the good, there really weren't a lot of awful performances last night.  Brandon Moore certainly did his fair share in contributing to the only loss on the night, so he walks away with the dubious honor today.
