AAA - Buffalo Bisons (41-57)_______________________________________



I feel bad for ny Bisons fans in attendance for both halves of the double-header yesterday, as the Herd got off on the wrong foot right from the get go.  Miguel Batista let the Chiefs bat around in the 1st inning of the 1st game, a good indicator of what was to come.  While the Bisons did rally to tie that one, they'd lose on a walk off hit in the 8th.  Gustavo Chacin actually managed to pitch worse than Batista, allowing the Chiefs to take a huge lead they'd never relinquish.  The Herd will try to avoid being swept today with Pat Misch on the hill.


  • CF Fernando Perez: 2-5, 2B, RBI, R
  • 3B Zach Lutz: DNP, No word on how long being hit in the head by a Wang fastball will have him out
  • 2B Michael Fisher: 1-5, 2B, 2 BB, R
  • RHP Miguel Batista: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 6 R (5 ER), 4 K, 2 BB
  • RHP Gustavo Chacin: 3 IP, 8 H, 6 ER, 1 K, 3 BB, 1 HR

AA - Binghamton Mets (39-59)_____________________________________


The B-Mets managed 4 homers on the day, but it wasn't enough to overcome a solid offensive showing from Portland.  Reese Havens returned to action with a solid offensive showing, but Matt Den Dekker's 2 homers stole the headlines in this one.  Portland snapped the Mets series win streak at 2, the Mets will look to rebound as they travel to Reading to scout the Phillies minor league system.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (16-9)________________________________________


David Wright was 2-2 with 2 walks in this one, he really looks like he should be back in Queens asap.  I'd really like to see the gang all back together for at least one more game before Carlos Beltran is selfishly traded away. Cory Vaughn is starting to show his power again, and still continues to get on base at a very good clip.  He and Den Dekker are giving me a very good feeling about the future of the Mets outfield.  Scott Moviel tossed a solid if unspectacular game to help the Mets remain atop the division. 


Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (15-11)__________________________________


The Gnats didn't do much for the first 7 innings of this one, and entered the 8th trailing 3-0.  The first five batters of the 8th managed to reach base safely though, and the Gnats were a bit unlucky to only score three runs in the frame.  West Virginia would go on to win the game in the 12th with yet another Jerryball 101 walkoff.  The top 4 hitters in the Gnats lineup went hitless on the night.

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (17-15)_______________________________________


Brooklyn managed to get down 5-0 early, but managed to rally and force extra innings in this one.  A walk and a pair of singles by Aberdeen in the tenth was enough to do in the Cyclones, dropping them 7.5 games behind Staten Island in the standings.

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (11-18)_______________________________________

Kingsport were in control of this one from the start.  Brett Mitchell gave the Mets 5 solid innings of work before giving way to the Mets bullpen.  Chasen Bradford and Jared West pitched a combined 4 innings to close out the game without allowing a baserunner.  All in all it was a very nice day for Kingsport.

Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (15-11)_______________________________________


The Mets weren't as poor offensively as the score would indicate, but all but one of their hits was a single and they only drew one walk.  Rafael Montero provided a pretty nice start, giving the Mets 5 2/3 innings while allowing no runs and striking out 6.  Sometimes games like this happen unfortunately.

 Star of the Night 

I'm going to go with Matt Den Dekker tonight, as he hit 2 homers in the Bingo loss.  He's been on fire for the last dozen games, putting his slow start well behind him.  Hopefully he continues this recent pace for the remainder of the season.

Goat of the Night

The Buffalo pair of castoff starters both stunk last night.  Both of them can have some horns.
