An article by posted on May 19, 2009

I have absolutely no words to describe what we just witnessed in Los Angeles.

Buffalo 9, Pawtucket 2

Fernando Nieve’s first AAA start with the Mets was a success, he gave up just 2 runs on 3 hits, though he did walk 6, he picked up the win courtesy a 6 run outburst in the top of the 7th inning.

The Bisons had 9 hits and drew 5 walks themselves, going 3 for 12 with RISP and leaving 7 on base. Fernando Martinez and Javier Valentin had multi hit games, while Argenis Reyes (0 for 3, run, 2 BBs, 2 Ks, .261), and Jon Malo (0 for 4, .182) took 0-fers.
