AAA - Buffalo Bisons (26-32)_______________________________________

BUFFALO 3, GWINNET 4 (Box) Igarashi stepped into a tie game, start of the ninth inning, reached back, threw a pitch, and the ballgame was over. Sheesh, if he'd have thrown two pitches what would have happened? The franchise folds? We extend Jason Bay? Yes, this was a walk-off loss and a heartbreaker, wasting a banner night from Captain Kirk, whose pair of doubles fell in the middle of two Bison mini-rallies. Three runs on ten hits wasn't enough to back up a so-so start from near-Met Chris Schwinden (healthy Dickey be praised), who showed OK peripherals but was hit altogether too hard.

AA - Binghamton Mets (18-36)_____________________________________

DIDN'T LOSE PLAY.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (29-28)________________________________________

ALSO DIDN'T PLAY. LIKELY SPENT THE DAY, MEAGER WAGES AT THE LAUNDROMAT, ARCADES.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (31-26)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 1, ASHVILLE 10 (Box) Brutal. How do you garner eight hits to the other team's nine, and lose ten to one? You hit all singles; you go one for eight with runners in scoring position; you leave eight aboard; you ground into two double plays; you get caught stealing; you don't walk. But wait a minute, still... How did Ashville score ten runs on nine hits when they left eleven aboard? Well, I'll tell you, but you won't like it. Eleven walks. Mix a couple homers into that foul brew and you've got trouble. Trouble with the Tourists of Ashville. Nice franchise name you've got there.

 Star of the Night 
Captain Kirk is the shining star of a shit-colored night. Kirk's .306/.408/.522 line in center field makes him sure look like the future, knock wood. But lo! Captain Nemo Nimmo approaches from the starboard! The kid is twenty-thousand (minor) leagues away from the majors, but having captains of both space and sea is good fun.

Goat of the Night
Taylor Whitenton got lit up good, but I'm still laying the goat on Ryoto Igarashi, for dashing hopes with such dreadful efficiency.
