Buffalo 4, Gwinnett 3 in 11 innings

Tim McNab picked up a cheap win (it’s the theme of the night), giving up a pair in the top of the 11th, (1 earned, due to a Fernando Martinez error), only to see the Bisons score 3 in the bottom half of the inning for the win. Dillon Gee started the game and was excellent for the 2nd time in his last 3 starts (7 ip, 6 h, er, k on 5/2). Tonight, he gave up a run on 3 hits and 2 walks in 7 innings.

The Bisons were held to 9 hits and 3 walks in the game, and all 4 of their runs were UER. They went 2 for 8 with RISP, leaving 10 men on base. Robinson Cancel (0 for 3, run, BB, .241) took the only 0-fer.

St. Lucie 12, Palm Beach 6

The Mets got a grand slam from Francisco Pena in the first inning, setting the tone for the offense, en route to a 11 hit, 3 homer, 8 walk outburst against the Cardinals. Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Carlos Guzman also homered for the Mets, who went 5 for 14 with RISP, and left 9 men on base.

Pitch counts suck. People wonder why we (and by we, I mean all of baseball, not the Mets) aren’t developing starters who can go deep into games? Just thought I’d throw that out there for everyone. Brad Holt was removed with a TWELVE to TWO lead, having struck out 9 over 4.2 innings, one out from qualifying for a win. Manuel Alvarez gave up a couple runs in 1.1 innings to pick up the cheap “win” in his season debut. Sporting a lovely 1-0, 10.80 line.
