AAA - Buffalo Bisons (37-32)_______________________________________
PAWTUCKET 8, BUFFALO 5 (Box)
The Bisons might have thought it was there night after Jeurys Familia walked the bases loaded in the second and got out of it with a pop-up and a 6-4-3. They would have been wrong. The wheels came off shortly after, as Familia struggled to find the plate all night, and a blown call on a double play in the sixth led to a five-run rally for the PawSox. Familia is a mess right now and has walked 44 batters in 64 AAA innings. Ungood.
- CF Matt den Dekker: 1-4, 2B, R, K, SB (11)
- 1B Josh Satin: 1-3, RBI, R, BB
- 2B Brad Emaus: 0-3, RBI, K, E (6)
- RHP Jeurys Familia: 4 IP, 3 ER, 5 H, 6 BB, 1 K, WP; Errr, yeah, control is still an issue, and he looks really mechanical out on the mound right now.
- LHP Josh Edgin: 1.1 IP, 2 ER, 1 H, 1 BB, 0 K
- RHP Pedro Beato: 0.2 IP, 1 ER, 3 R, 3 H, 0 BB, 1 K
AA - Binghamton Mets (31-33)_____________________________________
ALTOONA 7, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)
The Curve put a hurting on B-Mets starter Darin Gorski, who continues to see AA hitters putting his pitches over the fence at a more prodigious rate than Advanced A hitters. Gorski surrendered back to back home runs amongst his ten hits against. The control seems to be back...under control, but Gorski has been very hittable all too often this year. Less hittable was Curve starter Kyle McPherson who held Binghamton to just one run in his 2012 debut after suffering through a bout of dead arm.
- CF Juan Lagares: 2-4, 3B
- 3B Jefry Marte: 0-4
- 2B Reese Havens: 0-4, 2 K
- C Juan Centeno: 0-4, 2 K
- LHP Darin Gorski: L, 5 ER, 10 H, 0 BB, 5 K, 2 HR; 7 home runs allowed in 64 innings this year, after allowing only 11 in 138 last year.
- RHP Brad Holt: 1 IP, 0 ER, 0 H, 1 BB, 0 K
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (48-17)________________________________________
All-Star Weekend continues for St. Lucie, but the seven Mets in the All-Star game made some big contributions as the South Division beat the North 6-3. Wilmer Flores was the star of the game, going 3-4 and driving in 3 of the South's 6 runs.
Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (40-26)__________________________________
SAVANNAH 9, ROME 8 (Box)
So I had a whole thing written up here about how Savannah cruised to victory over Rome for their third straight win. Unfortunately I wrote this in the top of the ninth with the Gnats up 9-4. This is how the bottom of the ninth went, HBP, 1B, 1B (9-6 trying to stretch it into a 2B), 2B, 1B, BB, F8, 1B, BB, 6-3. So what looked like al laugher, ended with Savannah closer TJ Chism inducing that 6-3 to preserve a one-run lead with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth. Oh well, they all look the same in the win column.
- C Albert Cordero: 1-3, 2B, 2 R, BB
- DH Aderlin Rodriguez: 2-5, HR (11), R, RBI, K
- CF Travis Taijeron: 0-4, BB, 2 K
- 1B Brian Harrison: 2-4, 2B, 2 RBI, BB
- RHP Jacob DeGrom: 5 IP, 3 ER, 8 H, 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HR
