AAA - Buffalo Bisons _______________________________________
AA - Binghamton Mets (63-72)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 4, ERIE 3 (Box) Thanks to the work of Mets Minor League Blog's Michael Diaz, we have a fine scouting report on Robert Carson; through that lens interpret a 5 K, 0 BB, somewhat too hittable outing that ended with three runs allowed through five-and-a-third. Unfortunately, those runs erased a 3-0 lead, built on an RBI single (Lagares) and a run-scoring balk (Erie pitcher dude), both coming in the fifth. Carson fell apart thereafter, surrendering a triple, a double, and two singles before taking his shower -- then the game fell quiet until the top of the ninth. Therein, LF Brahaim Maldanoda blasted off his 26th home run of the year for the 5-4 lead, and win. 15 of their last 17 now!
- 2B Reese Havens: 0-4
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-3, R, BB, 2 K
- RF Juan Lagares: 2-4, 2 RBI, K, SB(9); Hit streak to 19 games, batting .402 over that span
- LHP Robert Carson: 5.1 IP, 6 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
- RHP Brad Holt: 1 IP, 1 K
- RHP Josh Stinson: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 K
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (33-31)________________________________________
FORT MYERS 1, ST. LUCIE 2 (Box) The Florida State League's Player of the Year lived up to his honorific, chucking five clean innings of two-hit ball, with no walks and four strikeouts. Show us them ivories, Gorski!
Of the boys with bats, Wilmer Flores and Jefry Marte sent four balls whistling, with a double apiece -- and Cesar Puello, hot as fart in hell, cracked a 2-RBI single in the 8th to leap the Miracle for the deciding 2-1 lead.
- RF Cory Vaughn: 0-3, BB
- 3B Jefry Marte: 2-4, R, 2B
- SS Wilmer Flores: 2-4, 2B
- DH Cesar Puello: 2-4, 2 RBI
- LHP Darin Gorski: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (38-27)__________________________________
CHARLESTON 8, SAVANNNAH 11 (Box) CF Darrell Ceciliani clocked a double, hammered a triple, worked out a walk, and stole his 25th base. It was the ripsnorting Darrell we knew and loved in Brooklyn, not the .259-hitting Darrell we are forced to be patient with today. The game was a 2-2 knot in the fourth inning, when the Gnats sent 11 men to the plate: four consecutive walks and a HBP somewhat helped, but a pair of big hits from Bonfe and Forsythe tore the game open. That is, before Charleston's 5-run charge -- but the Gnats, give them credit, held tight.
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 2-4, 2 R, 2B, 3B, 2 RBI, BB, SB(25), E(4)
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 0-4, 2 K
- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 0-3, R, 2 RBI, BB, K, E(20)

- RHP Taylor Whitenton: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 5 K
Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (40-29)_______________________________________
BROOKLYN 3, LOWELL 0 (Box) The Cyclones staff twirled a 1-hit beauty, with ten strikeouts and two walks between three strong arms. 5'11" lefthander Carlos Vasquez, not yet twenty-years-old, has struck out 49 and walked 12 in his 65.1 IP, enjoying a 3.31 ERA in the team's still uncertain grab at the wild-card. Travis Taijeron, crashing a two-run double in the ninth, once again played offensive star,
- SS Danny Muno: 1-3, 2 BB, SB(7), CS(4)
- RF Javier Rodriguez: 2-4, 2 K
- DH Brian Harrison: 2-4, R
- 1B Cole Frenzel: 1-4, R, K
