AAA - Buffalo Bisons (40-53)_______________________________________


Make it two in a row of the all-star break for the Bisons as the offense provided LHP Pat Misch with plenty of support, make no mischtake about it. Buffalo wasted no time in this one, loading the bases in the first and then unloading them, via a three-run double by DH Valentino Pascucci off of the rehabbing Kevin Slowey. Neither the Pascucci or the Bisons stopped there. Valentino added a solo home run in the fifth, and 2B Luis Hernandez chipped in with a 3 RBI game. Yes, that Luis Hernandez

AA - Binghamton Mets (36-57)_____________________________________


Binghamton feel to the Fisher Cats in a brisk, unremarkable contest that clocked in at two and a quarter hours. Binghamton's bats were quiet, save for back to back solo home runs from 2B Josh Satin and SS Jordany Valdespin. The B-Mets didn't manage a hit with RISP, and although LHP Robert Carson didn't have an outstanding start, he wasn't exactly helped out by his hitters.

INJURY REPORT: 2B Reese Havens (remember him) is expected to rejoin the team next week. RHP Jeurys Familia will skip his next start (again), because he needs rest. This is just getting weird.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (11-9 // 49-41)________________________________________


St. Lucie's new third baseman wasn't enough to help them get by the Flying Tigers, despite a rare serviceable start from RHP Scott Moviel. Moviel and the bullpen held Lakeland to just two runs, but outside of a first inning double by some guy named Wright, the Mets were held without an extra base hit. This Wright fella would also score St. Lucie's only run of the game on a two out single by DH Jefry Marte. The game took over four hours to finish, with a nice 93 minute break in the middle to watch the Florida skies open up.

REHAB ALERT: David Wright started at 3B and played five innings there. He went 1-2 with double, run scored, walk and strikeout.


Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (15-7 // 54-37)__________________________________


LHP Angel Cuan continues to be a pleasant surprise for the Sand Gnats. Since his promotion to starter to replace the St. Lucie bound Greg Peavey, he has posted three wins and a 17:3 K:BB ratio. Tonight the diminutive lefty held the Legends to just a single run in six innings of work. CF Darrell Ceciliani bounced back from last night's goatworthy performance to go 2-5 with an RBI, and the rest of Savannah's line-up did just enough to eek out a win and maintain their stranglehold on the South Atlantic League South Division

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones 14-13)_______________________________________


  • SS Danny Muno: 3-3, 2B, 3 R, 2 RBI, BB; Bat is the ticket to the majors and is hitting .388, so I guess, so far, so good.
  • DH Javier Rodriguez: 2-5, R, RBI, K
  • CF Travis Taijeron: 0-4, K
  • LHP Carlos Vazquez: W, 5 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 2 BB, 4 K; Along with Aldama, has given the Cyclones a strong 1-2 punch this year.
  • RHP Cory Mazzoni: 1 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 2 K
Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (10-14)_______________________________________

Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (13-9)_______________________________________


REHAB ALERT: It's a big old rehab party as RHP Eric Beauleac started and tossed two shutout innings, while C Kai Gronauer started at DH and went 1-4 with an RBI double.

 Star of the Night 

Brooklyn SS Danny Muno gets the honors tonight. I was a bit hard on him in my report earlier this week, and I would like to reiterate that he is not a shortstop, but he can hit, as today's 3-3 brought him up to .388/.508/.571 on the season. Now he is a college guy in the NYPL, and we shouldn't get too excited about a 14 game sample size. You have my permission to nod approvingly, though.

Goat of the Night

Hey, everyone that went 0-4 with 3 Ks, come on down. That would be, Cesar Puello, Gregory Pron, and Tilman Pugh. You guys can all fight over the horns tonight.
