AAA - Buffalo Bisons (33-25)_______________________________________
BUFFALO 2, TOLEDO 1 (Box)
On a night in which the Mets selected a shortstop in the first round, Ruben Tejada made a rehab start in Buffalo as he hopes to solidify the position at the major league level again for the club. He'd go 0-3 on the night, but regardless of the results, it's nice to see that he's getting close. Jenrry Mejia would throw only 72 pitches in his 5 1/3 innings of work, looking generally solid along the way. He could use a higher percentage of strikes (59%), but all in all it's nice to see him having success at AAA without having his full velocity. The herd would eventually pull this one out in 10 as some small ball resulted in the winning run unexpectedly coming home on a badly botched bunt. WinMethod!

AA - Binghamton Mets (26-27)_____________________________________
Bingo had it's second straight day where the weather played a part, as both the scheduled game and the make up were postponed.
Hi-A St. Lucie Mets (44-13)________________________________________
TAMPA 2, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)
Like the herd, St. Lucie would require 10 innings to finish their game today as well. A hit batter, stolen base, throwing error, and eventual hit would bring home the winning run for Tampa. The pitching was typically solid in this one, but 4 hits isn't going to leave a whole lot of margin for error. I suppose not everyone can be WinMethod all the time.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (33-23)__________________________________
Like the B-Mets players, the Gnats got to sit back and watch the draft last night as they had no game scheduled yesterday.
