Buffalo 0-3-1, Syracuse 4-9-1

Nick Evans is truly having a disasterous season so far, after his 0 for 4 tonight, he is now 5 for 53 (.094) with 18 Ks and a nifty .509 OPS. The Bisons had just 3 hits on the night (Jesus Feliciano, Jon Malo and Brandon Knight). Everyone else took 0-fers in another ugly offensive showing. Knight took the loss despite giving up 3 runs in 7 innings, he fell to 0-2. Eddie Kunz gave up a run in his inning of work, and Jon Switzer finished off the game.

John Madden allowed Coultas’ lone IHR to score in his inning of work, he was tagged with a BS. Edgar Alfonzo, Tim McNab, Nick Abel and Roy Merritt worked 6 shutout innings in relief, allowing 2 hits, striking out 5. Abel got the win, Merritt his 7th save.

St. Lucie 1-7-2, Charlotte 3-7-1

Angel Calero pitched very well tonight, giving up just a run on 2 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings, but that was enough for him to be tagged with a loss, as the Mets offense generated just a run on 7 hits themselves. Brant Rustich gave up 2 runs (1 earned) in his 3 innings of work, as he works up his pitch count.

Greg Veloz (0 for 5, .288), Zach Lutz (0 for 4, K, .271), and Brahiam Maldonado (0 for 4, K, .256) all took 0-fers, while Carlos Guzman had the only multi hit game.

Savannah 5-11-1, Rome 8-14-2

It was a tale of 2 starts for Robert Carson tonight. There was the first inning, in which he surrendered 6 runs (4 earned) on 6 hits (thanks to a Jordany Valdespin error (about the only thing he’s done wrong this season, lol)). And then there was the rest of his outing, in which he allowed a run on 6 hits in 5 innings. So while his total line looks putrid, it was one awful inning compounded by an error which did him in.

The offense certainly came to play, pounding out 11 hits and 5 runs, but the Gnats were 3 for 12 with RISP and left 7 on base. Valdespin, Eric Campbell and Jean Luc Blaquiere had multi hit games, while Rafael Fernandez (0 for 5, run, 4 Ks, .240), Josh Satin (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .370), and Jose Jimenez (0 for 3, 3 Ks, .050) all took 0-fers.
