*All results from games played on Monday, April 22nd 2013
AAA - Las Vegas 51's (10-8)_______________________________________
The 51's were scheduled to play Colorado Springs, but ended up getting the night off due to cold weather. There will be a double-header played on Tuesday starting at 6:05 PM EST to make up the postponed game.
AA - Binghamton Mets (10-8)_____________________________________
PORTLAND 8, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)
The Mets committed 5 errors on Monday night that led to 7 unearned runs for Binghamton, and couldn't get enough going at the plate against John Lackey and the Sea Dogs to make up for their own mistakes. Alonso Harris got the mistake parade rolling in the 1st, dropping a fly ball that ended up extending the inning and allowing 3 runs to cross the plate.
Harris committed his second error of the game in the 2nd, allowing an extra run to score when he misplayed a ground ball. A pair of throwing errors by Danny Muno and Cory Vaughn led to runs in the 4th, and Darrell Ceciliani missed a fairly routine ball to allow a pair in the 6th. All told, it was a night to forget in Portland for the Mets defense.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (12-6)________________________________________
ST. LUCIE 2, CHARLOTTE 1 (Box)
T.J. Rivera drove in both Mets runs in Charlotte last night, and the pitching staff did enough to assure that 2 runs held up for the win. Marcos Camarena, Randy Fontanez, and T.J. Chism allowed a total of 7 hits and 4 walks, but only allowed a single runner of the 11 to score in the 5th inning.
- 1B Aderlin Rodriguez: 1-4, K
- SS Matt Reynolds: 0-4
- CF Gilbert Gomez: 1-4, 2 K
- C Cam Maron: 1-5, K
- 2B T.J. Rivera: 2-4, BB, K, 2 RBI
- RF Travis Taijeron: 0-2, 2 BB, K, R
- RHP Marcos Camarena: 4.2 IP, 5 H, ER, 2 K, 3 BB, E
- LHP T.J. Chism: 2 IP, H, K, BB
Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (9-8)__________________________________
Savannah did not have a game scheduled for Monday evening. They start their next series against the Delmarva Shorebirds at 7:05 PM EST. It's Natty Light Two for Tuesday at Grayson Stadium this evening.
Star of the Night
T.J. Rivera had himself a nice night at the plate, going 2-4 with a walk and a pair of runners batted in. On a slow night for the Mets farm system, that will be enough to earn a gold star.
Goat of the Night
I think it's fairly easy to give tonight's goat of the night to the entire Binghamton defense. Five errors leading to 7 unearned runs will do that.
