AAA - Buffalo Bisons (31-45)_______________________________________

NORFOLK 2, BUFFALO 4 (Box) When Rob interviewed Zach Lutz back in January, he asked the power-hitting third baseman about his ability to stay healthy. "Well first off my foot is feeling the best it's ever felt," Zach began, understandably defensive after last year's two-month stint on the DL. "I don't really consider myself injury-prone," he went on. "I just kind of had some bad luck." Last night Zach airmailed the fifth pitch he saw for his fourth home run of the year. He's been raking since his return from, yes, a couple weeks on the DL (hammy): 3 homers in his last 5 games, a .917 OPS in Buffalo, and a possible ticket to the bigs in sight if Turner keep cooling and Wright makes a slow return. Well, let's hope it's absolutely nothing, but last night Zach took a pitch to the head. "It him in a good spot," reported his skipper. "Right near the ear and there's not much padding on the helmet there. He still has a little headache, but we'll be able to tell more tomorrow." I am honestly unsure whether by "good" Teufel means "bad," or not. Lutz left the field under his own power and, again, there's a good possibility of an undramatic, unconcussed conclusion. My friend, here's hoping for cautious rest and a productive return to the Herd.

F! also homered, in case you Misched it.

  • RF Fernando Martinez: 1-4, R, HR(5), RBI, 2 K; (.273/.335/.424)
  • 1B Nick Evans: 1-4, RBI
  • 3B Zach Lutz: 1-1, HR(4), E(2); (.318/.406/.511); No word on the pitch that hit him BTW. I'm finished this recap in the wee hours but they still haven't archived the video.
  • LHP Pat Misch: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 7 K, 1 HR; (56.2 IP, 5.08, 13 BB, 28 K, 10 HR, yeahhh)
  • RHP Ryoto Igarashi: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, Balk; (21.2 IP, 1.25, 6 BB, 27 K, 2 HR)

AA - Binghamton Mets (26-45)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 5, BOWIE 3 (Box): Silky Smooth Satin Cycles! Sold Soul to Satan? Here's how it went down. 1st inning: BOMB. Third inning: SINGLE.  Fifth inning: DOUBLE. Sixth inning: "Hmm, Satin is 3-3, he could hit for the cycle." "What's he missing?" "Triple." "Yeah and I'm a 99-mph fastball short of a major league contract." Seventh inning: TRIPLE. And just to be ridiculous; Ninth inning: WALK. If you could hardly believe this was really happening, imagine how starter Tobi Stoner felt. 

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (35-32)________________________________________



Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (40-31)__________________________________

GAME ONE: AUGUSTA 1, SAVANNAH 2 (Box) Angel Cuan, Adam Kolarak, and Hamilton Bennett combined for a one-hitter in the seven inning contest. 

  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 1-4, R, K, SB(12); (.243/.338/.365) Must miss his boy Cory. All the more so knowing how far he (Darrell) still is from that promotion.
  • 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-3, R, 2B, K; (.227/.276/.381)
  • 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 0-2, BB; (.232/.288/.289)
  • C Albert Cordero: 2-3 (.225/.257/.300)
  • LHP Angel Cuan: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

    GAME TWO: AUGUSTA 4, SAVANNNAH 2 (Box): Have a look at the above lines. Did you think they were gonna win both? And yet... Savannah has the best record in the system. Wonder if that's changing. 

  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 0-1, R, 2 BB, CS(5), PO
  • 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-3, 2 RBI, 2 K
  • SS Wilfredo Tovar: 0-2, R, BB
  • DH Albert Cordero: 0-2, BB, K, SB(1)
  • RHP Yohan Almonte: 5 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 3 BB, 1 K, 1 HR

    Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (5-3)_______________________________________

    BROOKLYN 1, HUDSON VALLEY 5 (Box) The 'Clones were no-hit through 6.2 until first baseman Luke Stewart jacked a triple like a proud Brooklyn player should. Stewart is a native of Normal, Illinois. I saw Bob Dylan play there once. Saith Dylan: "And they said I'd never get close to Normal." Stewy knocked home a man who had apparently swung at, and reached on, a wild pitch. With the score 2-1 there was plenty of hope, hope dashed by a 3-run bottom half of the frame. Brooklyn will try not to get swept facing Hudson Valley tonight.

  • SS Danny Muno: 0-4
  • RHP Jeffrey Walters: 5 IP, 3 H 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K

    • Appalachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (1-3)_______________________________________
      BRISTOL 6, KINGSPORT 8  (Box) Two more triples. Three of our teams had triples. And I didn't even get to watch the Mets game. Did Reyes triple? Probably tripled. Kingsport won their first game of the year last night and treated their Tennessean fans to a live one. In addition to said three-baggers, they had a homer and a double and six singles, and that just barely put our heroes over the edge as the White Sox did damage of their own. Blazing start for RF Gregory Pron, with seven hits in his first four games. You'll remember from the telecast that he was our 42nd-round draft pick this year.

    • CF Tillman Pugh: 1-3, R, RBI, 2 BB, K, SB(2)
    • LF Julio Concepcion: 2-5, R, 3B
    • RF Gregory Pron: 3-4, 2 R, 3B, SB(2)
    • 1B Alexander Sanchez: 1-4, 2 R, HR(1), 2 RBI, BB, SB(1)
    • LHP Brian Valenzuela:  IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
      Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (1-3)_______________________________________

      GCL CARDINALS 5, GCL METS 3 (Box): Four errors, four unearned runs. What are you gonna do?

    • CF Eudy Pina: 1-5, R, 2 K, SB(1)
    • RHP Rafael Montero: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

     Beaming Star of the Night 


    Stinking Goat of the Night

    Lady luck. Be well, Zach Lutz.
