AAA - Buffalo Bisons (37-29)_______________________________________


CF Matt Den Dekker walked in his first AAA at-bat, struck out twice, and doubled to spark a go-ahead 3-run rally on route to a tinglish 8-7 win for the Herd. MDD closes his Bingo career having gone .340/.397/.563 over 58 games in 2012, with 64 whiffs and 8 homers. The twenty five year old -- a year older than Nieuwenhuis -- enjoyed a thundering .223 ISO but also floated along on a .440 BABIP for that sunshiny average. In any case he's a boost to prospect watchers in Buffalo, and Lord knows we love him around here. SP Garret Olson was touched up some in his 4.2 and hit over the wall for half of the four run he allowed. Neither Egbert nor Edgin staunched the flow from the fifth inning on, but Pedro Beato struck out three in his one-and-two-thirds. 1B Josh Satin scored three runs and cranked a souvenir ball to the left field bleachers.

AA - Binghamton Mets (29-30)_____________________________________



Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (48-16)________________________________________


The Mets turned four double plays, their center fielder legged out a pair of triples, they remained the St. Lucie Goddam Mets, but, kiss my grits, they lost. Wilmer Flores played second base for the third straight contest, and with the bat roped a double and drove home a pair of runs. With 2B Reese Havens' brutal hitting in Bingo, what exactly's in store? CF Alonzo Harris was the aforementioned base-taking pegasus and did nearly enough to wriggle RHP Tyler Pill, faulty through 5.1 innings, off the hook. Pill is still deciphering high-A hitting, with a .372 average-against in his two starts and three K's in 10 innings pitched.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (35-26)__________________________________


    ★ Beaming Star of the Night

    Relief man Pedro Beato entered the game in Buffalo with men on second and third, a run scored, and one out. He struck out the next two batters to keep the game close and allow the next-inning go-ahead rally, on the heels of another strong Beato inning -- a single, a double-play ball, and a swinging K. Solid solid solid. The twenty five year old graduate of Xavarian High School in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, (just like my brother-in-law), has looked sharp through 12.2 innings upstate, giving up just one run on six hits with 12 strikeouts and 4 freebies. Chris Young bounced him off the major league roster, but don't be shocked when the bullpen comes calling.

    Stinking Goat of the Night

    Corey Vaughn is 1 for his last 13 and 6 for his last 35. His .263 average in April shrunk to .217 in May and has withered to .171 in young June. As bad as that all sounds, his power and patience have won him an above-average 111 wOBA+ and a wretched BABIP promises to improve somewhat, right? Cory is twenty three years old and if these contact struggles have to occur, you'd like it to be a rung or two up the ladder at this point.
