AAA - Buffalo Bisons (26-33)_______________________________________

INDIANAPOLIS 13, BUFFALO 4 (Box) Poor Josh Stinson imploded in the second inning, as the Indians homered, tripled, doubled (twice), walked (twice), reached on an error, stole a base, and advanced on a wild pitch. It was a really good inning if you happened to be accompanied by a foreigner and wanted to explain the offensive components of our national past time. Otherwise, it was just an eight run second and a mighty deep hole. "But with baseball you never know!" In the very next frame Lucas Duda helped cut the lead in half with a 3-run shot that spelled "Hope." Sadly, the bats went dead from there... for both teams... until the Indians let loose with a frankly insulting five run ninth. Yeah, we get it. Finally, in the bottom half, Chip trotted left-handed relief pitcher Taylor Tankersley out there to hit for himself. After having surrendered four earned runs. If that's not giving up...

AA - Binghamton Mets (18-38)_____________________________________

Holy lord. The B-Mets played a double-header yesterday. In the first game they took a 3-2 lead into the final inning (the seventh), backing up a pretty bad outing from Familia. In the second game they took a 5-2 lead into that same inning, buoyed by a pair of Satin-smooth homers. In the first game, they walked six batters -- six gosh darn batters -- lost the lead, and ultimately the ballgame. In the second game, they held the lead and won. LOL no they didn't. They gave up two doubles and two homers and didn't win at all. They lost. Sorry to be mean, but holy lord.

    Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (30-28)________________________________________

    ST. LUCIE 5, PALM BEACH 0 (Box) Ay, atta boys. Note the third straight stellar start for the left-hander Darin Gorski. In that stretch, 1 ER in 21.2 IP, 23 K, 2 BB. Can't get much better.

    Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (32-26)__________________________________

    SAVANNAH 2, ASHEVILLE 0 (Box) It almost worked out that every Sand Gnat got exactly one hit. The pitching, too, was by committee, with Almonte and Fraser putting together a splendid 8.2, and Edgin tapping in to strike out the final dude.

     Star of the Night 

    A wise man (Alex Nelson) once said, as he held forth on the 2009 draft,

    Seventh-round selection and pitchability lefty Darin Gorski; was another small-school pick. Scouts liked his frame and feel for pitching coming out of school, enough to discount his lack of velocity (tops out at 91 and sits in the mid-80's) or even one above average pitch. He throws a slow curve ball with a big break and a decent change. He does have simple, clean mechanics that shouldn't cause any particular problems as he advances.

    Since then, the 6'4" twenty-three year old has indeed advanced just fine, if not spectacularly... until now? In his third rung up the ladder Darin's sporting a 11.8 K/9 and a 73:14 K:BB ratio, and his last three starts have been -- as I said -- about as good as it gets. Let's look at that again: 1 ER in 21.2 IP, 23 K, 2 BB. Ahhhh. And he pitches with his left hand.
