AAA - Buffalo Bisons (41-54)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 13, ROCHESTER 4 (Box) Val Pascucci doesn't often appear in these pages but when he does it's to walk away with them. The 32-year-old ex-Lake Monster, Croc, Hammerhead, Senator, Oiler, Isotope, Zephyr, IronPig, Beaver, Rivershark, and Marine can't even land a major league team-name; also notice the preponderance of sea life. But last night Pascucci was the main attraction in a festival of Bison hitting. Val blasted a pair for five runs, five of his teammates had multiple hits, and a clean nobody walked, but who's complaining? As for the left-handed dabber Cohoon, he struck out seven while scattering hits, and only a long ball did him real harm. Banner night for Buffalo.
- 3B Zach Lutz: 2-5, 2 R, 2B, RBI, 3 K
- 2B Michael Fisher:1-5, 2 R, RBI

AA - Binghamton Mets (38-57)_____________________________________
NEW HAMPSHIRE 3, BINGHAMTON 4 (Box): Tobi Stoner was dealing good stuff and battery-mate Manriquez broke out the Big Bambu for the early 3-0 lead. But the bullpen blew it. Bottom of the ninth now, tie game, two outs, Niuman Romero standing at first, Eric Campbell at the dish. Crack! A tremendous double whistles out to pasture, Romero races round the circuit, and the B-Mets dog-pile our man Campbell for his walk-off heroics. Mm mm good.
- DH Josh Satin: 2-4, R, 2B, 2 K
- 3B Eric Campbell: 2-3, 2B, RBI, BB

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (13-9 || 51-41)________________________________________
CLEARWATER 2, ST. LUCIE 5 (Box) This is a good story. David Wright is a 28-year-old engineering major who once failed to lure Jose Cruz, Jr., away from the Blue Jays organization. His last significant playing time in the minor leagues came nearly a decade ago. In fact, I cannot find him on a single prospects list of the last several years. Well, last night St. Lucie's new DH knocked two base hits (including a double) and notched his first Florida State League RBI of the season. Congratulations to Dave and the whole Right family.
- RF Cory Vaughn: 1-4, RBI
- 3B Jefry Marte: 1-5, E(20)
- SS Wilmer Flores: 2-5, R, RBI

- REHAB ALERT: DH David Wright: 2-4, R, 2B, RBI, BB
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (15-9 || 54-39)__________________________________
SAVANNNAH 2, AUGUSTA 9 (Box): SP Ryan Fraser didn't have the grip; what few pitches found the plate met swinging bats, spelling five walks and seven hits in five frames. Nevertheless the game was in reach when Luis Rojas took the hill and shoved it away. The death march went: walk, walk, single, homer, double, single, and down eight runs. Our boys didn't do much with the lumber, hitting the ball only five times. 2B Luis Nieves hit a triple.
- DH Darrell Ceciliani: 0-3, BB
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 0-4, R
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4, RBI

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (16-13)_______________________________________
LOWELL 1, BROOKLYN 4 (Box) If you're reading this with your coffee please do the prudent thing: tell your boss your little girl's gotta go to the endodontist, and race to Coney Island before Jose Reyes takes the field at noon. Oh it will be glorious. I remember the famous Beltran walk-off single of 2009, and all the young celebrants unsure if they're allowed to touch him. It's magic. Anyway, last night the 'Clones struggled to plate their heroes early, scattering hits and suffering two fly-ball double plays, including Harrison's death at home. But in the sixth they caught up with RP Bastardo, and in the eighth the same part of the order mounted a second rally: Frenzel with a walk and a single; Lucas with a walk and a homer; Harrison with a single and a well-meant grounder; Thurber with a sac fly and a single. Then Andrew Jones replaced Bastardo! But no, it wasn't a well-meant typo, and this was some other-spelt Andrew Jones. 'Clones held on.
