AAA - Buffalo Bisons (63-72)_______________________________________


The Bisons racked up the hits against the Red Wings, and Chris Schwinden continues to look like solid rotation depth in his return engagement in Western New York. And hey, the Bisons' pen even held the lead this time.

AA - Binghamton Mets (64-69)_____________________________________


GORSKI! There's hasn't been much call for all caps during Darin Gorski starts this year, but the southpaw was dealing last night in Portland. Gorski struck out nine in 7 2/3 innings of one-run work, lowering his ERA on the season to 3.66. Reese Havens socked a two-run homer as part of a three RBI night, and we partied like it was 2011 in the Daily Farm System Report. GORSKI!

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (30-30 // 79-49)________________________________________

CHARLOTTE 2, ST. LUCIE 1 (12) (Box)

Chase Huchingson was one out away from a complete game shutout. Unfortunately, that out never came as the Mets lost a heartbreaker in Digital Domain Stadium, and took a dagger to their second half division title hopes. The offense didn't provide much help, going 0-14 with RISP and notching just seven singles in twelve innings. The Mets stay two and a half back of Jupiter, who's magic number is down to 8. St. Lucie does go to Jupiter for three after the Charlotte series wraps up tomorrow, so there may still be a new ending to write.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (25-36 // 66-62)__________________________________



Savannah managed just seven hits across the doubleheader, and were swept by the first-place Rome Braves. Alex Panteliodis continues his unexpected run of greatness and has now posted 53:4 K:BB ratio across his last seven starts. But he, like Game One starter Yohan Almonte, did not get a lick of support from the Sand Gnats's bats.

    Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (39-26)__________________________________


    After a tough loss last night on the island, the Cyclones left no doubt about the 'W' in this one. Hansel Robles was dealing from the start, and Brooklyn busted open with an eight run seventh to quickly turn this one into a laugher. Brandon Nimmo socked an RBI double and walked three times, and Jeff Reynolds cracked a three run home run to close the explosive eight-run inning. Nimmo can run around the bases really, really fast when he decides to open up the engine. Yeegads. Robles continues to garner some prospecty attention and he does have a live arm, although the secondary stuff comes and goes.

  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-2, 2B, R, RBI, 3 BB; Seriously, I hadn't really seen Nimmo floor it yet this year, it was fun to watch.
  • SS Philip Evans: 3-5, R, 2 RBI; One of those hits was even to the opposite field!
  • C Kevin Plawecki: 0-3, RBI
  • RHP Hansel Robles: W, 7 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 8 K; That'll play.

    Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (23-40)__________________________________


    The usual Appy League slog was at least perked up by a couple of debuts for 2012 Mets draftees.

    Star of the Night

    So many good candidates, but for old time's sake, let's go with Darin Gorski. GORSKI!

    Goat of the Night

    The Savannah offense. Poor Toby Hyde.
