St. Lucie 7, Jupiter 6 in 12 innings.

The Mets had a second straight good offensive game, hammering out 13 hits and drawing 3 walks en route to a 12 inning, 7-6 victory. 5 players had multi hit games, while Greg Veloz (0 for 5, K, .244), Carlos Guzman (0 for 6, 3 Ks, .258), and Jake Eigsti (0 for 4, K, .208) took 0-fers. The Mets went 4 for 13 (.308) with RISP and left 10 men on base. Francisco Pena hit the game winning HR for the Mets in the top of the 12th, part of a 3 hit outburst for the 19 year old catcher.

Jeff Kaplan started and was very good, giving up just 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks in 7 innings, and would’ve gotten the win, if not for horrific bullpen work from Nick Waechter, who gave up 3 runs on 2 hits and a walk in 0.2 innings. Manuel Alvarez blew the save by allowing both of Waechter’s runs to score, plus his own. Edgar Ramirez got the win with 2 scoreless innings, and Stephen Clyne picked up the save (both had been demoted earlier in the day from Binghamton)

Kingsport 5, Bristol 11

Another night of just flat out awful pitching for the KMets, as they surrendered 16 hits, 7 walks and 11 runs. It got so bad, Tyler Howe had to pitch (he’s a catcher). Eduardo Aldama was staked to a 4-0 lead after 4, but gave it all back in the top of the 5th, giving up 5. The Mets got him off the hook, but then Brian Needham gave up 7 hits, 3 walks and 6 runs in 2.2 innings for the loss.

The Mets offense had 8 hits and 6 walks, while going 5 for 12 (.417) with RISP, leaving 8 on base. Darrell Ceciliani (0 for 4, K, .189) and Gerad Mochizuki (0 for 3, BB, 2 Ks, .255) took 0-fers, while RJ Harris had the only multi hit game for the Mets.
