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.

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.

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.

 

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.

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.

Applachian League (R)- Kingsport Mets (34-28)_______________________________________
 
KINGSPORT 9, DANVILLE 4 (Box)

Domingo Tapia had a fairly nice outing and the Mets capitalized on 6 Danville errors to help them cruise to the victory in this one.

Gulf Coast League (R)- GCL Mets (26-28)_______________________________________

GCL NATIONALS 13, GCL METS 2 (Box)

The Mets got pounded in this one, but the highlight of the night was definitely Brandon Nimmo launching his first career HR and taking his first walk.


 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.

Goat of the Night

Easily the cyclones bullpen tonight...that loss made it far less likely that the Clones can now catch the Yankees for the division title.
