AAA - Buffalo Bisons (50-69)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 3, DURHAM 2 (Box)
The Bisons faced off with arguably the best pitching prospect in baseball, Durham's Matt Moore. The results were as expected, as Moore allowed only two hits and two walks while striking out ten over six innings of work. LHP Pat Misch was almost as good in his 8 1/3, but would have been in line for the hard luck loss if the Mets hadn't pounced on the Durham pen in the seventh. Three straight singles and a HBP, set the stage for a three run comeback for the Bisons, who inched ahead (behind?) of the B-Mets in the race for the worst record in the organization.
- 3B Zach Lutz: 0-3, BB, 2 K
- 2B Jordany Valdespin: 1-3, 2B, K
- 1B Josh Satin: 0-4, 2 K; #blameberg
- RF-LF Fernando Martinez: 1-3, R, BB, K
AA - Binghamton Mets (49-70)_____________________________________
RICHMOND 6, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)
On a night when Darin Gorski reinforced the idea that he is too good for the Florida State Leaguel, LHP Robert Carson continued to struggle in Binghamton. The stuff is still there, but he has been far too hittable, and is now striking out less than six and a half per nine. The Flying Squirrels hung a five spot up in the third and Binghamton's offense never even threatened a comeback, managing only four hits on the night.
- PH Reese Havens: 1-1 (.300/.380/.440); Still not on the DL.
- 3B Eric Campbell: 0-3 (.229/.340/.315)
- 1B Allan Dykstra: 0-3, K (.257/.384/.440)
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-3, BB, 2 K (.230/.316/.406 @ AA); I think this is a reasonable approximation of what his average line in the majors might look like.
- 3B Michael Fisher: 1-1 (.300/.333/.492 @ AA)
- LHP Robert Carson: L, 6.1 IP, 6 R,, 3 ER, 7 H, 1 BB, 3 K (3-11, 107.2, 4.85, 77 K, 47 BB, 131 H, 12 HR); The Mets are going to have some decisions to make about where the futures of Carson and Moore lie with an interesting crop of pitchers breathing down their necks.
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (25-22 // 64-54)________________________________________
ST. LUCIE 3, CHARLOTTE 0 (Box)
LHP Darin Gorski came into this contest having scuffled a bit in his last few outings. The home runs were up, the Ks down, but perhaps he was just a bit bored with the level, because he was back to early season form last night with a stellar six innings for the Mets. Allowing just one baserunner and striking out six, Gorski set the tone for a suddenly hot St. Lucie squad as they won their fourth straight. It did look like it was going to be a nail biter, as the Mets nursed a 1-0 lead into the seventh, when SS Wilmer Flores slapped a two RBI single to right to give some breathing room. LHP Josh Edgin finished the game with a perfect ninth, and like Gorski, has little left to prove at this level.
- 3B Jefry Marte: 2-3, HBP (.252/.319/.353)
- SS Wilmer Flores: 1-4, 2 RBI, K (.273/.313/.393)
- C Francisco Pena: 1-5, R, RBI, 2 K (.227/.285/.322)
- RF Gilbert Gomez: 0-4; St. Lucie just needed a body, and Gomez was in the complex anyway.
- LHP Darin Gorski: W, 6 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 BB, 6 K (11-1, 122.2 IP, 2.27, 125 K, 27 BB, 99 H, 11 HR); GORSKI!!!!!1111111
- LHP Josh Edgin: SV, 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 0 BB, 2 K (2-0, 56 IP, 1.13, 64 K, 18 BB, 35 H, 1 HR)
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (30-17 // 69-47)__________________________________
SAVANNAH 5, GREENVILLE 4 (Box)
In what is becoming a regular occurrence, there was more late inning magic for the Sand Gnats at Historic Grayson Stadium. Starter Erik Goeddel continues to struggle a bit as he works his way back from his shoulder strain, but the Sand Gnats still nursed a 4-3 lead going into the late innings. LHP Adam Kolarek was stellar in his long relief appearance, but surrendered a game tying solo shot to Xander Bogaerts leading off the ninth. No matter, as a pair of singles and a walk loaded the bases for C Blake Forsythe. Forsythe calmly watched four balls go by, and Savannah maintains their two and a half game lead in the South Division.
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-4, 2 K, SB (1), E (39)
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 2-4, 2B, 2 R, BB, K, SB (14)
- C Blake Forsythe: 0-4, 2 RBI, BB, 3 K
- RHP Erik Goeddel: 4 IP, 3 ER, 2 H, 3 BB, 2 K, WP, E (1)
- LHP Adam Kolarek: W, 5 IP, 1 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (31-24)_______________________________________
BROOKLYN 10, MAHONING VALLEY 6 (Box)
A long bus ride to Ohio, but a big win for the Cyclones, who cut the Scrappers lead in the NYPL wild card race to a single game. The Brooklyn offense put on a show, led by 2B T.J. Rivera's four hits. They were also helped out by the Mahoning Valley pitching staff, which uncorked seven(?!) wild pitches on the evening.
- DH Danny Muno: 1-4, R, BB, CS (.344/.448/.497)
- LF Javier Rodriguez: 2-5, R, SB (4) (.259/.349/.418)
- CF Travis Taijeron: 0-2, R, BB, K (.303/.400/.558)
- 1B Cole Frenzel: 2-4, 2B, RBI, 2 K (.238/.341/.314)
- LHP Carlos Vazquez: W, 5.1 IP, 4 ER, 7 H, 0 BB, 1 K, HBP (3-2, 52.1 IP, 3.78, 39 K, 11 BB, 58 H, 3 HR)
- RHP Tyler Pill: 1 IP, 2 ER, 2 H, 1 BB, 1 K
- C Camden Maron: 1-5, HR (3), R, RBI, K, E (4)
- CF-RF Tillman Pugh: 0-4, BB, 2 K
- LF Julio Concepcion: 1-4, K
- RF Gregory Pron: 3-3, 2B, HR (7), 2 R, 3 RBI, 2 BB
- C Jeffrey Glenn: 0-2, BB, HBP
- RHP Akeel Morris: 0.1 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 1 H, 4 BB, 1 K; Oof.
- CF Eudy Pina: 0-3, K (.220/.264/.305)
- 1B Ryan Hutson: 0-1, 3 BB, SB (1) (.205/.347/.299)
- LF Joe Tuschak: 1-3 (.206/.309/.235)
- RHP Gabriel Ynoa: L, 5 IP, 4 ER, 6 H, 1 BB, 3 K (2-3, 46 IP, 3.13, 21 K, 4 BB, 49 H, 1 HR); 18 year old is showing the same basic skillset from last year's DSL stint, some groundballs, almost no walks, but not enough strikeouts.
- RHP Robert Gsellman: 2 IP, 2 ER, 4 H, 0 BB, 2 K, E (1)
REHAB NOTICE: Chin-Lung Hu started at SS and went 0-4
