AAA - Buffalo Bisons (55-58)_______________________________________


Jeurys Familia was pretty awful again, but that performance was quickly buried under an avalanche of runs from the Bisons' line-up. Josh Satin erased a 5-3 deficit with a three-run bomb, and Buffalo piled on from there. Fun fact: Wally Backman was ejected after getting into a fight with the Syracuse bench. That's a new one. Apparently he crossed between the mound and the plate when he went out to coach third base. WALLYBALL!

  • RF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 0-1; Left after coming up lame running out a grounder in the first. Early reports is plantar fascitis. Ruh-roh
  • CF Matt Den Dekker: 1-4, BB, K, SB (17)
  • 1B Zach Lutz: 3-4, 2 2B, 2 R, 3 RBI, BB, K
  • 2B Josh Satin: 4-5, HR (12), 2 2B,R, 4 RBI, K; Headed for stage lights and leer jets, fortune and fame.
  • PH Valentino Pascucci: 0-1
  • LF Lucas Duda: 3-4, HR (1), 3 R, 2 RBI, BB, K
  • C Mike Nickeas: 2-4, HR (1), 2 R, 2 RBI, BB
  • RHP Jeurys Familia: 2.2 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 3 BB, 0 K, 2 HR; I got nothing, so question for the gallery: How far does Familia drop on your Mets prospect list this offseason? Is he still in the Top 10?

AA - Binghamton Mets (53-58)_____________________________________


Darin Gorski surrendered three home runs, and the B-Mets only hit one. You can probably do the math from there. Gorski's HR/9 at AA this season has been 1.39. That's problematic.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (20-22 // 69-41)________________________________________


The B-Mets could have used Aderlin Rodriguez, who hit two bombs for St. Lucie. Cory Vaughn and Rafel Fernandez added solo shots of their own in support of a strong start from Tyler Pill.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats ( 18-24 // 59-50)__________________________________


Domingo Tapia was the hard-luck loser in this one, pitching into the eighth at the launching pad in Asheville. A fielding error by Yucarybert de la Cruz helped the Tourists snatch the lead back from the Gnats who continue to struggle to score runs.

Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (27-18)__________________________________


Luis Cessa, Matthew Bowman and John Mincone combined on a two-hit shutout while the Cyclones punished the Tigers with a barrage of twelve hits. Brooklyn climbs back to within two games of Hudson Valley for the division lead.

  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 2-3, 2B, R, BB, K
  • SS Philip Evans: 3-4, 2B, R, RBI
  • DH Kevin Plawecki: 1-3, 2B, R
  • 2B Juan Carlos Gamboa: 1-3
  • RHP Luis Cessa: W, 5 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 4 K
  • RHP Matt Bowman: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K; Very quietly posting a 16:1 K:BB ratio in 15.1 IP out of the Brooklyn pen. Has three pitches, one of which is a solid change-up. Curious to see if they let him start next year in A-ball, even if he's likely a reliever long term.

    Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (13-27)__________________________________



    Star of the Night

    Aderlin Rodriguesz Tyler Pill, and half the Buffalo line-up had great games, but you know, HAIL SATIN!

    Goat of the Night

    Sorry, Corey Oswalt, but crooked numbers like that draw the attention of the horns.
