AAA - Buffalo Bisons (51-53)_______________________________________
LOUISVILLE 4, BUFFALO 1 (Box)
Not much in the way of excitement in this one, but Mike Baxter will likely be reuniting Kirk Nieuwenhuis with Lucas Duda very soon.
- LF Mike Baxter: 2-3, RBI
- CF Matt Den Dekker: 0-3, 2 K
- 3B Zach Lutz: 0-4, 2 K
- 2B Josh Satin: 1-3, BB, 2 K

AA - Binghamton Mets (48-54)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 4, NEW BRITAIN 3 (Box)
Eric Campbell continued his quietly excellent season, boosting his OBP to .418 and his OPS to .902 with his solid night. Mark Cohoon continued to look like an excellent 2 1/2 A pitcher in the process, as the Mets are now in position to go for the sweep today.

- 3B Jefry Marte: 0-3, K, R
- 2B Reese Havens: 0-4, K

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (14-18)__________________________________
SAVANNAH 8, KANNAPOLIS 1 (Box)
Jacob DeGrom put together another fantastic start for the Gnats. Between he and Logan Verrett, the Mets may have themselves another interesting pair of starting pitching prospects. Dustin Lawley did enough on his own to provide the offense necessary for DeGrom tonight.
- C Cam Maron: 1-3, HR, 2 BB, K, 2 RBI, 2 R
- CF Gilbert Gomez: 2-4, BB, K, RBI, 2 R

- RHP Rainy Lara: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 6 K, BB, HR
Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (21-15)__________________________________
ABERDEEN 6, BROOKLYN 3 (Box)
Rainy Lara gave Brooklyn a solid enough start, but the bullpen just couldn't do much last night. Sound familiar?
Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (9-22)__________________________________
ELIZABETHTON 12, KINGSPORT 5 (Box)
There just isn't much to be done when your starter does what Akeel Morris did last night. Kingsport really never had a chance in this one.
- SS Gavin Cecchini: 0-1, BB
- 2B Branden Kaupe: 1-2, 2 BB, K, R
- RF Maikis De La Cruz: 1-3, BB, K
- DH Tomas Nido: 2-4, BB, RBI
- RHP Akeel Morris: 2 IP, 5 H, 10 ER, 3 K, 5 BB, 2 HR
★ Star of the Night ★
Dustin Lawley went yard twice last night, earning himself a shiny new gold star in the process.
Goat of the Night
Can it possibly be anyone other than Akeel Morris?
