*All results from games played on Monday the 4th of July 2011

The contest goes on as nobody has yet chosen the correct Star of the Night. Send your guesses for S.O.T.N to for some free swag (pictured)!


AAA - Buffalo Bisons (36-50)_______________________________________


Buffalo managed only six hits on the day, a pair of which were grouped in the seventh with a pair of walks to account for all of their offense.  Pat Misch was in control but hitable, so nothing out of the ordinary there.  Unfortunately for the Herd, Dale Thayer allowed a pair of homers in relief to allow Syracuse to seal the win.

AA - Binghamton Mets (30-52)_____________________________________


Binghamton finally reached the elusive thirty win mark on the season, although they really were walking the tightrope trying to blow this one in the ninth.  Jeurys Familia gave the B-Mets a pretty solid 5 innings of work, although the three walks aren't all that nice to see from him.  Allan Dykstra had a pretty typical Allan Dykstra game, and Eric Campbell had a nice outing as well.

Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (6-4)________________________________________

FT. MYERS 9, ST. LUCIE 5 (Box)

The Mets were in trouble early in this one, as Scott Moviel allowed the first batter of the game to score.  He'd go on to allow five more runs to cross the plate in his three inning outing, essentially sealing this one as a loss for St. Lucie.  St. Lucie did manage to get 9 of their 10 batters on the afternoon to reach base, but 5 runs just wasn't enough.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (11-1)__________________________________


Savannah needed extra innings to win this one, but in typical Gnats fashion pulled out a late win to keep steamrolling the South Atlantic league.  Yohan Almonte was mostly good, although he almost imploded in the fourth allowing 5 of his 8 hits and his only walk.  Nice bounce back from him though, following that up with 2 2/3 of scoreless work to keep the Gnats in line for the win.  Albert Cordero had a nice evening at the plate, collecting two hits and a walk.

Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (11-7)_______________________________________


Brooklyn jumped all over the Yankees early in this one, scoring five times before Staten Island even got on the board. The pitching staff did a nice job not walking the Yankees back into the game, issuing only one free pass on the evening to go along with their twelve strikeouts.  The win drew the Clones to within 3 1/2 of the Yankees for the division lead.

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (7-7)_______________________________________

Domingo Taia struggled with his location, as he really liked the center of the plate in this one.  Johnson City took advantage to the tune of 11 hits in 3 2/3.  Throwing hard is a lot more effective if you hit the corners I guess.  Camden Maron had a very nice game at the plate for Kingsport, as did Dustin Lawley.  
Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (7-4)_______________________________________


The Mets offense struggled to get going in this one, but managed to sandwich two walks and a hit by pitch in between a pair of doubles in the fourth to score all three of their runs.  Jose De La Torre came out after a single batter in this one, but Gabriel Ynoa and Isaac Monrroy combined to give them 9 pretty solid innings of work allowing only two runs.

 Star of the Night 

Today we'll step outside the Mets minor league system and give the honors to Joey Chestnut for managing to swallow (almost literally) 62 hot dogs in 10 minutes to win his 5th consecutive Nathans hot dog eating contest.  Disgusting as it may be to watch, it's certainly a tradition in Brooklyn. Within the system, let's go with Binghamton's Jeurys Familia who seems to be re-energized or re-charged or whatever they want to call him; either way he looked good yesterday.

Goat of the Night

Scott Moviel gets the horns tonight, continuing to be less than impressive several years after being taken very early in the draft.  The tall righty just doesn't seem to have ever developed any of the velocity and movement most scouts thought he could.  Domingo Tapia certainly did his best to take them away from Moviel though.
