1) Via a Bingo press release, 2B Reese Havens has been re-instated to the B-Mets active roster. Again, he was placed on the DL back on July 1st with a somewhat mysterious injury that the club would only describe as ‘unrelated to his off-season rib surgery’.

2) Also, the club has apparently signed 2011 ninth rounder and Florida starter LHP Alex Panteliodis. Click here for Alex's draft report on him. Looks like he'll be assigned to Brooklyn, along with most of the other D1 college draftees.

AAA - Buffalo Bisons (41-55)_______________________________________


This one took 12 innings to finish, and like so many other games this season it ended badly for the Herd.  Jesus Feliciano got Buffalo started right, smacking a Chien-Ming Wang pitch out of the park in the first inning.  He scored again after singling in his next AB, but that was about all the offense the Bisons would get on the evening.  Dylan Owen had a solid night for the Bisons, but the lack of offense allowed it to go to waste.  Buffalo is scheduled to play two against the Chiefs today with castoffs Gustavo Chachin and Miguel Batista taking the hill.

AA - Binghamton Mets (39-58)_____________________________________


Brandon Moore kept the Sea Dogs at bay last night, and Brahaim Maldanado drove in four to lead the way for Bingo.  Saloman Manriquez had a pair of doubles and a walk in this one, and he scored every time he reached base.  The Mets have a chance to win their third straight series today as they send Robert Carson to the hill.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (15-9)________________________________________


The Mets won again, but didn't have quite the offensive explosion they produced Monday.  David Wright went 2-4 with a double and a walk in his rehab start yesterday, looking like he's ready to come of the disabled list to rejoin the core.  His presence may have stolen the show from Kyle Allen who had an exceptional game on the hill for St. Lucie.  He went 8 innings with relative ease, allowing only 6 baserunners to get on in that time while striking out 6 as well.  In other news of note, Francisco Pena actually had a second multi-hit game in a row.

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (17-14)_______________________________________


The Cyclones got off to a slow start in this one, allowing the IronBirds to score in each of the first three innings en route to a four run lead.  It was all Cyclones after that, though, as they began pouring the offense on with a 5 run 5th.  Most of the damage in that inning was done via the single and base on balls, but there were also several wild pitches involved.  The Cyclones were patient enough to bat around in the inning, and once they got going had a pair of big innings in the 7th and 8th (3 more runs each) to cruise to the comfortable win.

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (10-18)_______________________________________

There really isn't too much to say about this one.  First baseman Luke Stewart had the only hit of the day for Kingsport, and they only managed to get on the board at all due to three errors by Greeneville in the second inning. The pitching wasn't anything to write home about for Kingsport either, as Brian Valenzuela allowed 8 baserunners and 5 runs in his 4 1/3 innings of work.
Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (15-10)_______________________________________


This was a pretty good pitchers duel, Julien Hilario held his own for the Mets through 5 very effective innings.  Jerry Manuel would have loved the way the Cards ended this one, scoring the prototypical small ball run in the bottom of the ninth.  Adam Ehrlich singled before being replaced by a pinch runner.  A stolen base, sac bunt, and sac fly later the game was over.  Jerryball 101 at it's finest.

 Star of the Night 

Kyle Allen was very good for St. Lucie, going 8 strong without giving up a run or a walk.  Not even handing the ball off to Eric Niesen in the 9th could undo his exceptional performance.

Goat of the Night

For my money, Tillman Pugh gets the horns yesterday.  Going 0-4 while striking out in every at bat tends to stand out in a bad way.
