AAA - Buffalo Bisons (42-57)_______________________________________


Pat Misch, stopper? The southpaw helped the Bisons salvage a game in their series with the Syracuse Chiefs, tossing 6 and 2/3, and surrendering a mere 5 hits and 2 runs. Okay, he also walked 3, tossed 2 wild pitches and hit 2 batters, but beggars shant be choosers. RHP Dale Thayer (and his mustache) finished the Cuse off, striking out 4 in a perfect 2.1 IP. 2B Luis Hernandez provided all the necessary offense, too, yet somehow the world keeps spinning on its axis. With 90% of the prospects, marginal prospects, and interesting org guys hurt or in the majors, it is slim pickings in Buffalo right now. So let's check in on CF Fernando Perez and see how he's doing...

AA - Binghamton Mets (40-59)_____________________________________


The Bingo offense exploded for six home runs on their way to a laugher over Reading. 2B Jordany Valdespin hit two of them, giving him as many home runs as 1B Allan Dykstra (who also went yard) and raised his slugging to .493 on the season. The red hot Valdespin is hitting .372/.402/.671 in June and establishing himself as one of the top prospects in the organization. RHPs Colin McHugh and Jack Egbert combined to shut down the Phils and win the series opener for the B-Mets. Clearly, the key to not having a bullpen meltdown is just using two starters every game.

  • 2B Reese Havens: DNP; Likely just a day off.
  • 3B Josh Satin: 3-5, 2B, 2 R, RBI, K; Yawn. Oh, in an unrelated story, Jose Coronado started at third for Buffalo today.
  • CF Matt Den Dekker: 1-4, HR (5), 2 R, RBI, BB, K; Yes, the strikeouts are a problem, but the power has been overlooked some this year.
  • 1B Allan Dykstra: 1-5, HR (13), R, 2 RBI
  • 2B Jordany Valdespin: 3-4, 2 HR (13), 2 R, 2 RBI, HBP, CS; Only nitpicks are the errors and the fact that he is 29 for 42 stealing bases
  • RHP Colin McHugh: W, 5 IP, 1 ER, 4 H, 1 BB, 4 K; Yeah, he's 24 and not really a prospect, but he is striking out more than a batter an inning this year, and might be a potential future bullpen arm. 

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (17-9 // 55-41)________________________________________


Even without 3B David Wright's bat in the line-up, the offenseapolooza continued. St. Lucie brazenly flaunted the Endangered Species Act by beating the Manatees into submission. DH Juan Lagares broke out of a small slump by going 3 for 6 with a home run and CF Cesar Puello added a three run blast of his own. Every St. Lucie starter managed either a hit or a run scored, and while RHP Armando Rodriguez didn't pitch great, and also committed two errors, it didn't really much matter.


Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (16-11 // 55-41)__________________________________


Nothing quite sends the crowd home happy like a walk-off throwing error, right? Well, with the Sand Gnats recent struggles, I am sure not a single denizen of Historic Grayson Stadium was complaining yesterday. Another fine start from LHP Angel Cuan  had Savannah in good shape, but the Sand Gnats bats only managed an Aderlin Rodgriguez two-run home run off Power starter (and potential trade bait) Jameson Tallion. The game stayed knotted at two into the bottom of the ninth, when C Blake Forsythe led off with a single, was sacrificed over, went to third on a passed ball, and then scored on the aforementioned throwing error. Wake up people! Smallball works!

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (18-15)_______________________________________


Pitcher's duels are all well and good, but like me, you probably wanted to see more blowouts. Well, Brooklyn had your back, as they blasted their way to a mercy rule invoking victory over the IronBirds. Brooklyn bats knocked out 20 hits, including four from CF Travis Taijeron and five from 3B Richard Lucas. Once again, the pitching performances were mostly irrelevant, though RHP Jeffrey Walters was quite good on the mound last night.

REHAB ALERT: Eric Beaulac pitched a pair of scoreless frames, striking out three.

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (12-18)_______________________________________

Yep, that's a clean sweep.

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

The GCL Mets were off yesterday.

 Star of the Night 

Really, the whole organization should get this for a perfect 6-0 night, but let's give it to 2B Jordany Valdespin for his two home runs and CF Travis Taijeron for his 5 RBIs. Nice games, fellas

Goat of the Night

I guess I could give it to..nah, you know what? The org went 6-0. The horns get a night off.
