AAA - Buffalo Bisons (35-46)_______________________________________


Pat Misch wasn't very good, allowing 12 baserunners and 3 homeruns despite earning the victory today.  Nick Evans was fantastic, going 5-5 on the day off of former teammate Tim Redding and the Lehigh bullpen.  In his last 19 games Evans is mashing the ball, batting .513 with 11 doubles and a trio of homers.  Something tells me he won't clear waivers for a third time if we expose him again this season.

  • RF Fernando Martinez: 1-5, R, 2 RBI, 3 K (.266/.322/.418)- Still healthy...
  • 1B Nick Evans: 5-5, 2B, R (.328/.376/.503)- Has now hit in 19 straight games
  • 2B Michael Fisher: 0-4, BB, R, 2 K (.273/.348/.392)
  • LHP Pat Misch: 5.2 IP, 8 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 8 K, 3 HR 

AA - Binghamton Mets (28-49)_____________________________________


Binghamton stayed in this one through the fifth, but it was all downhill from there as they conceded six runs in the last five innings.  Allan Dykstra and Brahiam Maldonado were the shining stars in this one, with Maldonado hitting his 15th HR of the season.  It's now been an entire trip through the rotation since the B-Mets had a starter last 5 innings, so hopefully we see that trend change real soon.

  • IF Josh Satin:2-4, RBI, R (.317/.413/.521) - Quietly having a monster year
  • 3B Eric Campbell: 0-4 (.193/.305/.256)
  • CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-3, BB, R
  • 1B Allan Dykstra: 2-3, BB, 2B, RBI (.264/.390/.433) - Still not Eddie Kunz...If he starts to show a little more power we could really be looking at a potential contributor
  • SS Jordany Valdespin: 0-1 (.282/.332/.448)
  • RHP Colin McHugh: 3.1 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 5 BB, 3 K (28.1 IP, 4.13 ERA, 23 K, 14 BB, 2 HR)

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (3-2)________________________________________



Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (6-1)__________________________________


The Gnats were tied heading into the 8th, but for the fifth consecutive game managed to take the lead with runs in the 8th or 9th to secure the win.  Yohan Almonte  had a very solid if unspectacular outing for the Gnats, and Aderlin Rodriguez pitched in with a pair of hits.  The Gnats will look for the sweep of the four game set tomorrow night.

* Skipping season marks from this point on, as the sample sizes are still too small to gather much relevant info from

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (8-5)_______________________________________


This probably wasn't a game most AL fans would have loved, as there were only 11 hits in total.  Four Brooklyn pitchers combined to allow only eight baserunners on the evening, but a Chris Winder homer to lead off the eighth proved to be the difference in this one.

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (4-5)_______________________________________

Akeel Morris had a decent outing, keeping the Mets in the game through his five innings of work while striking out eight.  Unfortunately for Kingsport, Jared West had a rough sixth inning, giving up 5 baserunners and allowing four of them to reach home.  Tillman Pugh and Jeff Glenn weren't quite hot enough at the plate to overcome the bad inning, dropping Kingsport under .500 on the season.

Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (4-2)_______________________________________


 Star of the Night 

Who else...Nick Evans! 

Goat of the Night

While he didn't have the worst outing ever, I'm going to go with Jared West for ruining a solid Akeel Morris start.  Hopefully next time Akeel gets some help from the pen, although I guess if he's going to be a Met he should get used to this.
