AAA - Buffalo Bisons (22-16)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 9, CHARLOTTE 3 (Box)
Jeurys Familia and the offense were clicking last night, so despite the best efforts of Dylan Owen the Herd still managed a convincing win. Fred Lewis continued his hot hitting in AAA, coming up a homer shy of a cycle. Outside of the three walks Familia was very impressive, his high pitch count limited him to only 5 innings of work on the evening though. If he can manage to cut back on the number of pitches it takes to get through an at bat, watch out.
- 1B Josh Satin: 1-3, 2B, 2 BB, K, R
- 1B Valentino Pascucci: 2-5, HR(8), 3 RBI, R, 2 K

- INJURY UPDATE: It was only a matter of time. Zach Lutz was added to the minor league DL yesterday with a broken hamate. Corey Wimberly will take his place on the Buffalo roster.
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (29-8)________________________________________
ST. LUCIE 4, BRADENTON 1 (Box)
Jennry Mejia made his second rehab start after his return to the mound last week, and it was a beauty. Seven strikeouts and nine groundouts are an awfully efficient way to go about your business. I'd think we see maybe one more start in Florida before he makes his way to Buffalo.
- RF Cesar Puello: 1-4, HR(1), RBI, R, K
- 3B Wilmer Flores: 1-4
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 2-3
- RF Cory Vaughn: 0-4, RBI, K
- 2B Danny Muno: 2-3. 2B, RBI, R
- 3B Richard Lucas: 3-4, 2B
- SS Robbie Shields: 0-2, BB
- C Francisco Pena: 1-2, HR, RBI, R, BB
- RHP Jennry Mejia: 6 IP, 3 H, ER, 7 K, 0 BB, HR - Hard to imagine he'll keep the K rate this high at the upper levels, but very nice indeed.
- RHP Yohan Almonte: 3 IP, H, 6 K, BB
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (23-13)__________________________________
SAVANNAH 6, CHARLESTON 2 (Box)
Singles machine Aderlin Rodriguez had a 4-5 outing, Cam Maron also collected 3 hits in this one. That type of offense combined with some fairly solid pitching was enough to do in Charleston on the day and assure the Mets affiliates went 3-3.
- C Cam Maron: 3-6, RBI, K, R
- CF Travis Taijeron: 0-5, 3 K
- 3B Aderlin Rodriguez: 4-5, K, R
- CF Tillman Pugh: 0-4, K, R
- 2B T.J. Rivera: 2-5, BB, R
- 1B Brian Harrison: 2-5, K, R
- 3B Dustin Lawley: 2-5, 2B, 2 RBI, R
- RHP Rafael Montero: 5.2 IP, 4 H, R, 5 K, BB
- RHP Jeffrey Walters: 2 IP, H, 2 K, BB
