AAA - Buffalo Bisons (57-73)_______________________________________

BUFFALO 0, COLUMBUS 5 (Box) Jordany Valdespin yanked a double and did not score, though he was the Herd's lone runner to reach scoring position. Meanwhile, the Clippers busted three homers off left-handed fluffballer Pat Misch, and we all went home screaming.

AA - Binghamton Mets (57-72)_____________________________________

ERIE 4, BINGHAMTON 6 (Box) Bingo climbed from a 4-run hole to mount a 6th inning 5-run charge. Havens cranked a three-run shot -- Den Dekker and Lagares aboard -- and Eric Campbell pushed his team ahead with a two-run double -- a lead that was expanded when Den Dekker cracked a homer to begin the 7th. He didn't strike out neither.


Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (28-27)________________________________________

ST. LUCIE 1, FORT MYERS 2 / 5 INNINGS (Box) This ballgame began on July 1st, believe it or not, and lasted an inning before the rain fell. So they picked it up tonight, and played the game of baseball for one hour and eleven minutes, before pulling the tarp over a 5-inning, official Met loss.


Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (35-22)__________________________________

SAVANNNAH 2, ROME 6 (Box) Yohan Almote didn't walk anybody, didn't whiff anybody, only doled out the hits. The Gnats lay quiet until the seventh, when Joe "the Bonfire" Bonfire clipped a single, and Blake "the Scythe" Forsythe reaped what Joe sowed. That is, he hit a homer. 


Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (35-27)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 4, TRI-CITY 7 (Box) Danny Muno knocked a couple safeties and worked a walk, and Richard Lucas, who almost fought an umpire the other day, cracked a home run.

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (33-28)_______________________________________

Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (25-28)_______________________________________


 Beaming Star of the Night 

3B Reese Havens did the heavy lifting in the org's lone win, sending a 3-run ball to the seats. The 24-year-old second baseman is tearing up August: .357/.446/.500, granted with a .442 BABIP.

Stinking Goat of the Night

Nimmo fanned in his first three at bats to run his K streak to 7, before mercifully flying out to center field. Mercifullier yet, Zach Lutz managed a yet worse night and wears the horns.
