AAA - Buffalo Bisons (57-74)_______________________________________
TOLEDO 7, BUFFALO 6 (Box)
Buffalo got up early when Josh Satin's RBI single was followed by Jesus Feliciano doubling home a pair, but Chris Schwinden gave up a pair of big innings in the 2nd and 6th to doom the herd in this one.
- SS Jordany Valdespin: 2-5, 2B, 3 K, R
- IF Josh Satin: 2-4, 2 RBI, R
- 3B Zach Lutz: 0-3, 2 BB, 2 K, R
- RHP Chris Schwinden: 5.1 IP, 9 H, 6 ER, 4 K, BB, HR
AA - Binghamton Mets (59-71)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 10, ERIE 5 (Box)
Matt Den Dekker went off, homering in each of the first two innings. With Kai Gronauer also having a big night, the B-Mets easily cruised to victory in this one. They'll finish well below .500, but for a team that was 22 under at one point this has been a very encouraging way to finish the year.
- LF Juan Lagares: 2-4, K, R
- 3B Eric Campbell: 1-4, K, 2 RBI
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 2-4, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 1, 2 R
- C Kai Gronauer: 3-4, HR, RBI, 3 R
- LHP Robert Carson: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 4 K, 3 BB
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (29-28)________________________________________
FT. MYERS 3, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)
ST. LUCIE 4, FT. MYERS 3 (Box)
St. Lucie split the double header behind a bunch a strong pitching, some poor defense, and very little hitting. Darin Gorski was the tough luck loser in the first one despite allowing 0 ER and pitching the entire game. Kyle Allen and Josh Edgin combined to keep the Miracle offense at bay throughout the second game as well, and this time there was a little better defense played behind them.
- RF Cory Vaughn: 1-3, 2 K / 0-3
- 3B Jefry Marte: 0-3, K / 1-3, 2 K, R
- SS Wilmer Flores: 0-3, K / 1-3
- C Francisco Pena: 1-2 / 0-1, BB
- LHP Darin Gorski: 6 IP, 4 H, 3 R (0 ER), 5 K, 0 BB
- RHP Kyle Allen: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 3 K, BB
- LHP Josh Edgin: 1.1 IP, 3 K, BB
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (35-24)__________________________________
ROME 5, SAVANNNAH 3 (Box)
The Braves took a 2-0 lead in the 3rd and wouldn't look back from there as the Gnats dropped their 4th straight. While Aderlin Rodriguez has been somewhat disappointing for the Mets this year, he managed to hit his 15th HR of the season, tying Sean Ratliff for the best mark by a Gnat since they became affiliated with the Mets.
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 0-4
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-4, HR, RBI, R
- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 2-4
- C Blake Forsythe: 2-4, K
- RHP Ryan Fraser: 3 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, K, BB
- RHP Gonzalez Germen: 4 IP, 5 H, 3 R (2 ER), 2 K, 3 BB
Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (35-28)_______________________________________
TRI-CITY 7, BROOKLYN 4 (Box)
Brooklyn appeared to have this one well in hand with a 4-2 lead heading into the 8th. Todd Weldon and Jeremy Gould then combined to allow 5 runs to cross the plate which dropped the Clones to 4.5 games behind the division leading Yankees.
- SS Danny Muno: 1-4, BB, R
- 3B Brian Harrison: 0-5, 2 K
- LHP Carlos Vazquez: 6 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 3 K, 2 BB

- C Jeffrey Glenn: 2-4, RBI, 2 K, R
- RHP Domingo Tapia: 6 IP, 3 R (2 ER), 6 K, 2 BB
- CF Eudy Pina: 1-2, HR, RBI, R
- 1B Ryan Hutson: 0-3, BB, 2 K

- OF Ariel Mercedes: 1-1
- LHP Alberto Baldonado: 4 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 2 K, 3 BB
★ Star of the Night ★
While I'm tempted to hand it to Den Dekker as he's probably earned it, Brandon Nimmo will get the gold star tonight for his pair of firsts.
