New York Mets Daily Farm System Report - 8/6
*All results from games played on Friday, August 5th 2011
AAA - Buffalo Bisons (48-65)_______________________________________
PAWTUCKET 6, BUFFALO 5 (Box)
Buffalo looked to be in good shape to make it two in a row against the PawSox, but mustachioed RHP Dale Thayer gave up a two-out, two run walk-off single to Brett Carroll to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Buffalo's offensive attack was led by that guy I like, you know the one. The one that has two hits every game. RF Fernando Martinez had a nice outing as well.
- 3B Josh Satin: 2-3, 3 R, BB; Seriously, he's almost boring at this point.
- DH Fernando Martinez: 3-4, 3 2B, 2 RBI
- 1B Nick Evans: 0-3, BB, K, HBP
- RF Mike Baxter: 0-4, R, BB
- SS Ruben Tejada: 2-4
AA - Binghamton Mets (46-67)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 6, READING 3 (Box)
The B-Mets kicked off their series with with the AA Phils in fine fashion. After giving up two home runs in the first inning, RHP Brandon Moore settled down and got through six frames, before turning things over to RHP Colin McHugh who continues to miss bunches of Eastern League bats. Binghamton's batters picked up Moore with a four run third, including a two run shot off the bat of LF Brahiam Maldonado, his 20th of the 2011 campaign which leads the affiliates. 2B Reese Havens added a solo shot of his own as part of a three hit night.
- 2B Reese Havens: 3-4, 2B, HR (3), 2 R, 2 RBI
- LF Juan Lagares: 0-1
- 3B Eric Campbell: 2-3, 3B, R, RBI, HBP, E (16)
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-3, BB, K, CS
- 1B Allan Dykstra: 1-3, 2B, R, BB
- SS Jordany Valdespin: DNP
- C Kai Gronauer: 1-4, RBI
- RHP Brandon Moore: W, 6 IP, 3 ER, 5 H, 4 BB, 4 K, 2 HR, WP, HBP; Two things Moore can't do. 1. Give up home runs. 2. Walk guys. Whoops.
- RHP Colin McHugh: SV, 3 IP, 0 ER, 2 H, 0 BB, 6 K, WP; After struggling at St. Lucie, has been very, very good for Binghamton. Making a case to be in the bullpen mix in the future.
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (21-20 // 59-52)________________________________________
ST. LUCIE 7, JUPITER 6 (12) (Box)
After the rather dire pair of losses two days ago to Jupiter, the St. Lucie bats picked up a bit last night. RHP Darin Gorski continues to struggle a bit, though the peripherals have stayed strong, as he gave up four runs and got touched up for another longball. St. Lucie's offense played station to station, rapping out nine singles and drawing six walks, but managed to match Jupiter through nine. In the tenth, some aggressive baserunning matched up with timely hitting to plate two for the Mets, but the Hammerheads struck back in the bottom half, notching two of their own of LHP Eric Niesen, whose woes continue. The Mets struck again in the twelfth on a two-out single from 3B Jefry Marte and this time the pen was able to hang on for the W.
- RF Cory Vaughn: 0-3, R, RBI, 3 BB, K
- 3B Jefry Marte: 1-5, RBI, BB, 2 K
- SS Wilmer Flores: 3-5, 2B, 2 R, RBI, K; He's Miguel Cabrera!
- CF Cesar Puello: 2-6, 3 R, K
- RHP Darin Gorski: 6 IP, 4 ER, 6 H, 0 BB, 4 K, 1 HR, WP; I am hoping he is bored at Hi-A, and this isn't just regression. I think I know which is more likely, though.
- RHP Cory Mazzoni: 1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 BB, 0 K; 2011 2nd round pick was moved right along after strong start in Brooklyn
- LHP Jeffrey Edgin: 1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (27-14 // 66-44)__________________________________
SAVANNNAH 10, CHARLESTON 5 (Box)
Break up the Sand Gnats! Savannah continues to dominate the rest of the South Atlantic League. Tonight, they were carried by recent Brooklyn call-up DH Juan Torres who put a pair over the fence and plated five to power the Sand Gnats attack. It was a bullpen game for the Gnats staff, and although 'starter' LHP Adam Kolarek got knocked around, (right after getting singled out by Rob as one to watch) it didn't matter as Savannah scored nine of their own in the first three innings. LHP Chase Huchingon got the scorer's decision win, pitching three scoreless in relief.
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 0-2, 2 BB, 2 K
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-5, R, 2 RBI, K, E (35)
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4, R, RBI, K
- DH Albert Cordero: 3-5, R
- LHP Adam Kolarek: 2.2 IP, 5 R, 3 ER, 6 H, 3 BB, 1 K: Jinx!
- LHP Chase Huchingson: W, 3 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 0 BB, 1 K
Short Season A- Brooklyn Cyclones (26-21)_______________________________________
BROOKLYN 9, STATEN ISLAND 5 (Box)
The Cyclone finally turned the tables on the division-leading Yanks, pouring in 7 runs in the late innings to take the lead and put the game out of reach. What looked like a pitcher's duel early, turned into a laugher, as Brooklyn used three walks, a hit by pitch, a passed ball, and a wild pitch to help along a five run seventh. Brooklyn's pen continues to be lights out, just two unearned runs tonight thanks to an error by 3B Richard Lucas, who gets a pass, since he drove in four. Don't forget tonight is AA day down at MCU Park. I believe tickets are still available to watch me fawn over SS Danny Muno.
- SS Danny Muno: 1-4, 2 R, 2 BB, K; Munoball is the new Moneyball. Or the old Moneyball. Whatever.
- LF Javier Rodriguez: 1-1, 2B, 2 R, 4 BB; No, that is the old Moneyball. If only he weren't a toolsy high school kid.
- DH Brian Harrison: 0-5, K
- CF Travis Taijeron: 2-4, 2 RBI
- LHP Carlos Vazquez: 4.1 IP, 2 ER, 5 H, 1 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
- RHP Tyson Seng: 1.2 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 K
- LHP Jack Leathersich: 1 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 1 BB, 1 K; First outing back from a bout of food poisoning, wouldn't be surprised to see him get bumped to A Ball as well at some point.
- C Camden Maron: 1-3, 2 R, HBP
- LF Julio Concepcion: 1-3, R, BB, K
- RF Gregory Pron: 2-4, 2B, R, 2 RBI, 2 K; Many a man has gone mad favoring college prospects that mash in the Appy League, be thee warned.
- RHP Domingo Tapia: W, 6 IP, 2 R, 0 ER, 2 H, 3 BB, 4 K; Tapia also takes a step in the right direction.
★ Star of the Night ★
I like it when people make things simple for me. Savannah DH Juan Torres his two home runs and drove in five.
