AAA - Buffalo Bisons (13-10)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 4, ROCHESTER 3 (Box)
Buffalo found a little bit of offense fairly early in this one and a strong overall pitching performance was enough to hold off their I-90 rivals. Andres Torres doesn't seem to be too limited in his ability to move, so I'd have to assume his rehab stint will be coming to a close very shortly. Also of note in this one, former farmhand Deolis Guerra threw three solid innings for the Wings.
- CF Andres Torres - 1-3, BB, R, K
- 1B Josh Satin: 1-5, 2 K
- RHP Jeremy Hefner - 7.2 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 5 K, 0 BB, HR
- LHP Josh Edgin - 1 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 1 K, 1 BB
AA - Binghamton Mets (11-10)_____________________________________
ERIE 3, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)
Colin McHugh wasn't bad in this one, but when the number of batters you walk in 4 1/3 is equal to the number of hits your team gets for the entire game you aren't likely to pick up a W. This was just a poor offensive display from Bingo. Kevin Mulvey had a decent outing from the bullpen as he continues to attempt to re-establish his career.
- LF Juan Lagares: 0-4, K
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-3, 2 BB, 2 K, R
- 3B Jefry Marte: 1-4, RBI
- LF Pedro Zapata: 1-4, 2 K
- RHP Colin McHugh - 4.1 IP, 3 H, 3 ER, 4 K, 4 BB
- RHP Kevin Mulvey - 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 K, 0 BB
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (18-4)________________________________________
ST. LUCIE 4, FT. MYERS 0 (Box)
Is it too early to start talking magic numbers? Seriously, 18-4 to start the year is impressive. Coming off the back of what this group did in Savannah last year makes it even more so. Good pitching and a solid enough offense are a good combination, and those two things were again on display yesterday.
- 3B Wilmer Flores: 1-4
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-3, BB, R
- RF Cory Vaughn: 2-5, HR, 2 RBI, R
- 2B Danny Muno: 1-5, K, RBI
- 1B Richard Lucas: 0-4, 3 K
- RHP Cory Mazzoni: 5 IP, 6 H, 0 ER, 4 K, BB
- LHP Adam Kolarek: 1 IP, 1 K
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (12-11)__________________________________
LEXINGTON 5, SAVANNAH 4 (Box)
Michael Fulmer continues to struggle with the location of his pitches, but the stuff is certainly there. Hopefully he gets it figured out soon, as his arm is a real asset to the farm system.
- C Albert Cordero - 1-4, 2B, R
- 3B Dustin Lawley - 0-5, 2 K
- CF Tillman Pugh: 0-4, 3 K
- RHP Michael Fulmer: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 4 K, BB, 2 HR
- LHP Jack Leathersich: 1 IP, 2 BB, 2 K
