Buffalo 7, Scranton 3

The Bisons used a 4 run 8th to erase a 3-2 deficit and hand the Yankees their first loss of the season. Nick Evans nightmare season, however, continued, as he went 0 for 4 with another pair of Ks, he’s now struck out 15 times in 45 ABs, and is rocking a .111 average and a sub .640 OPS. Ouch. Buffalo had just 5 hits on the game, but drew 6 walks, and were 3 for 8 with RISP. Andy Green (0 for 2, run, RBI, 2 BBs, K, .000), Nick Evans, Argenis Reyes (0 for 2, 2 runs, 2 BBs, K, .233) and Jose Coronado (0 for 3, run, K, .089) took 0-fers.

Dillon Gee started for the Bisons, and he was decent, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits over 5.1 innings. He did strike out 7, and both of his IHR were allowed to score by Ken Takahashi, on a hit, a WP and 2 walks. Elmer Dessens worked 2.1 innings for the win, and Carlos Muniz pitched a scoreless 9th.

The Mets offense had 5 hits and 3 walks, and also benefitted from 2 errors by the Thunder. They were 2 for 6 with RISP, and didn’t leave any runners on base.

St. Lucie 7, Jupiter 1

The Mets offense pounded out 12 hits and drew 4 walks en route to a 7-1 drubbing of Jupiter, but despite the 7 runs, they were just 2 for 12 with RISP, and left 9 men on base. Greg Veloz and Reese Havens were a combined 5 for 9 at the top of the order, and the 345 hitters did their job, driving in 5 of the 7 runs for the Mets. Carlos Guzman (0 for 5, K, .341), and Brahiam Maldonado (0 for 3, 2 Ks, .286) took 0-fers.

Nick Waechter (starting in place of Brad Holt, no news as of now about why), was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst, he worked 5 innings, allowing just a run and striking out 6 for his first win. Edgar Ramirez worked 3 innings of shutout relief, and Stephen Clyne pitched a scoreless 9th.

Savannah 4, Charleston 5

Josh Stinson got a start today, and it was a rough one, he surrendered 4 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks in 3 innings, to pick up the loss as Savannah lost an early morning game 5-4. However, it was Manuel Olivares who allowed the deciding run of the game, in the 5th inning, and also allowed all 3 of Stinson’s IHR to score.

The Gnats had 7 hits and a walk, parlaying them into 4 runs, and they went 3 for 9 with RISP, and left just 3 men on base, but the pitching side let them down yesterday morning. Jordany Valdespin (0 for 3, run, BB, K, .341), Josh Satin (0 for 3, .371) and Raul Reyes (0 for 3, 2 Ks, .188) took 0-fers, while Jefry Marte had a multi hit game for the Gnats.
