Binghamton 8, Portland 3

Emmanuel Garcia broke out of a 6 for 37 slump in a huge way, going 3 for 4 with 3 runs, leading the Mets to a convincing 8-3 win over the Sea Dogs today. Josh Thole, Shawn Bowman and Mark Kiger also had multi hit games for the Mets, while Ruben Tejada (0 for 3, BB, 2 Ks, .222), Lucas Duda (0 for 4, K, .292), and Carl Loadenthal (0 for 4, K, .270) took 0-fers.

Ryan Coultas got the start tonight, and was effective in his 5 innings, allowing just 6 hits and a run (on a solo homer). Despite entering the game with a 4 run lead, Roy Merritt somehow got a save, going 1.2 innings for his 9th of the season.

St. Lucie 7, Sarasota 5

Carlos Guzman’s walkoff 2 run homer in the 10th provided the Mets with their second straight extra inning victory tonight, 7-5 against the Reds. The story of the game, however, is the continued resurgance of Ike Davis, who had 2 more hits tonight, both doubles, and is batting .371 over his last 10 games, with 6 2b and 8 XBH. The 2 thru 5 hitters in the Mets order were a combined 10 for 23 with 4 2b, 2 HR and 5 RBI. Greg Veloz (0 for 4, BB, K, .229, in a long 6 for 43 slump) and Brahiam Maldonado (0 for 4, 3 Ks, .224) took 0-fers.

Eric Niesen started tonight as was good over his 6 innings, allowing 3 hits and 2 runs (1 earned, thanks to a Bouchard error). Nick Carr blew the save (thanks to a Reese Havens error, his 10th), but got the win with 4 innings of piggyback relief. Carr has rebounded strongly so far this month off what was a total disaster of a season in 2008, he’s posted a 1.69 era in 16 innings this month, with 11 hits allowed in 16 innings, and 17 Ks to go along with 10 walks.

Eric Beaulac started today and was roughed up for 3 runs on 4 hits (including a homer) and 3 walks in 3.2 innings, but a piggybacking Kyle Allen matched his best outing of the season, working 4.1 innings, allowing just a run on 2 hits, striking out 7 to pick up his first win. Rhiner Cruz got the final 2 outs for his 4th save.

The top 4 in the order for the Gnats (Fernandez, Marte, Flores, Satin) were a combined 0 for 16 with 4 walks and 7 Ks, and they scored 2 runs (one each for Marte and Satin).
