Buffalo 4, Columbus 3

Jon Switzer allowed a run in the top of the 8th, blowing the save, but Javier Valentin’s solo shot in the bottom of the inning gave the Bisons the win. Elmer Dessens picked it up with 1.2 perfect innings in relief, he now has an eye popping 0.79 era for Buffalo. Nelson Figueroa started and was very good, allowing just 2 runs on 7 hits in 6 innings, but got a ND thanks to Switzer. The Bisons offense had 9 hits and 2 walks, but were just 2 for 8 with RISP and left 5 on base. Argenis Reyes, Cory Sullivan and Valentin had multi hit games, while Willy Mo Pena (0 for 4, .200), Robinson Cancel (0 for 3, .212) and Mark Kiger (0 for 3, .000) all took 0-fers. 2b Argenis Reyes 2 for 4, RBI, .276 cf Cory Sullivan 2 for 4, run, K, .227 lf Fernando Martinez 1 for 4, 2b, RBI, .295 1b Javier Valentin 2 for 3, 2 runs, 2b, HR, RBI, BB, .333 3b Mike Lamb 1 for 4, RBI, K, .170 rf Jesus Feliciano 1 for 2, run, BB, .264 Nelson Figueroa 6 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 2/7 BB/K, HR, 2.65 era, 104:70:34, 4:6:7 Jon Switzer 1.1 IP, 3 H, ER, HR, 2.66 era, BS (1), 27:19:8, 1:3:0 Elmer Dessens 1.2 IP, 0.79 era, W (3-1), 20:12:8, 4:1:0

Binghamton 5, New Britain 7

The Mets slammed out 17 hits and drew 3 walks today, and were 5 for 16 with RISP, but left 10 men on base and hit into 3 DPs in losing. The Mets pounded out 9 hits and 5 runs in the last 2 innings, cutting a 5-0 lead to 5-2, and then a 7-2 lead to 7-5, but could not get over the hump. Nick Evans (1 for 4, BB, 2 Ks, .250), Josh Petersen (1 for 4, 2 RBI, .286) and Jose Coronado (1 for 4, K, .269) failed to register multi hit games. Ryan Coultas had a rough outing, giving up 4 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks in 6 innings to take the loss, but it was Nick Abel who got slammed for 3 runs in 2.1 innings who really gave up the runs which mattered, in the end. cf Emmanuel Garcia 2 for 4, run, BB, .261 c Josh Thole 2 for 5, RBI, K, .353 lf DJ Wabick 2 for 5, 2 runs, 2b, RBI, K, .301 dh Lucas Duda 3 for 4, run, RBI, BB, .295 3b Shawn Bowman 2 for 5, 2b, 2 Ks, .288 2b Ruben Tejada 3 for 4, run, .248 Ryan Coultas 6 IP, 6 H, 4 ER, 3/1 BB/K, HR, 3 era, L (3-2), 4:11:1 Nick Abel 2.1 IP, 4 H, 3 ER, 2/1 BB/K, 8.05 era, 2:3:1 Julio De La Cruz 0.2 IP, 2 H, K, 3.13 era, 0:1:1

St. Lucie 2, Sarasota 3

Angel Calero had one bad inning tonight, and that was enough to doom him. He gave up 3 runs in the 3rd, on a HBP, 2 hits and 2 walks. The Mets offense got single UERs in the 1st and 6th innings, on 4 hits, 2 errors and 3 walks. The Mets were just 1 for 8 with RISP and left 5 men on base. Greg Veloz (1 for 4, run, K, .220), Carlos Guzman (1 for 4, 2 Ks, .287), Francisco Pena (1 for 3, RBI, BB, K, .204), and Matt Bouchard (1 for 4, .216) had the hits for the Mets, everyone else took 0-fers. Reese Havens 0-fer tonight takes him down to .227 on the season, he is 6 for his last 42, and is hitting .176/.307/.324 on the month. The good news is he’s drawn 12 walks in just 19 games this month, and has struck out just 12 times (so he’s making contact, albeit weak contact). ss Reese Havens 0 for 4, run, RBI, .227 3b Zach Lutz 0 for 2, 2 BBs, K, .262 1b Ike Davis 0 for 4, K, .289 lf Brahiam Maldonado 0 for 2, .203 rf Richard Pena 0 for 3, K, .000 Angel Calero 7 IP, 5 H, 3 ER, 2/8 BB/K, 3.57 era, L (1-4), 6:7:8 Nick Waechter IP, H, 4.03 era, 3:0:0
