Binghamton 10, Altoona 6 in 10 innings

DJ Wabick hit a grand slam in the top of the 10th, providing the BMets with the final margin of victory, and Connor Robertson, who blew the save in the 9th, worked a scoreless 10th for a vulture win, his 2nd in the EL. The Mets had 15 hits and drew 7 walks, while going 6 for 16 (.375) with RISP, leaving 13 on base.

St. Lucie 2, Clearwater 4 (game originally suspended yesterday)

Tim Stronach “started” this game yesterday, lasting just an inning before the rains came, but he gave up a pair in his inning of work, and so got tagged with a cheap loss. Jeff Kaplan worked 6 innings of 2 run “relief” .

The Mets faced Pedro Martinez (for all of 1.1 innings), and got a hit off him, overall getting 8 hits and 3 walks, while going 1 for 8 with RISP, leaving 7 on base. Reese Havens (0 for 1, 2 BBs, K, .239), Francisco Pena (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .221), and Zach Lutz (0 for 3, BB, K, .285), while Brahiam Maldonado and Hector Pellot each had 2 for 4 games.

St. Lucie 3, Clearwater 4 (regularly scheduled game)

Scott Shaw started tonight for the Mets, and gave up 4 runs in 4 innings on 8 hits and 3 walks for his 7th loss of the season. The Mets had just 5 hits and 2 walks tonight, while going just 1 for 3 with RISP, leaving 3 on base. Kirk Nieuwenhuis (2) had the only multi hit game, while Greg Veloz (0 for 3, .242), Reese Havens (0 for 2, run, BB, K, .237), Carlos Guzman (0 for 3, .253), Rafael Arroyo (0 for 3, 2 Ks, .094) and Luis Rivera (0 for 3, K, .083) all took 0-fers.

Edgar Ramirez 2 IP, 1/2 BB/K, 0.27 era, 1:3:2

By the way, what exactly does Edgar Ramirez have left to prove in the FSL? He went up to the Eastern League and posted a 6.66 era in 25.2 innings, but for crying out loud, the man has a .27 era, and it was around .40 when he left St. Lucie the first time. For crying out loud, send him north and leave him there. Not like he’s getting any younger (he’s 25 1/2)

Savannah 13, Greensboro 7

The Gnats had one of their best offensive games of the season, hammering out 15 hits and drawing 6 walks, while going 7 for 12 (.583) with RISP and leaving 7 on base. Every Gnat except Jean Luc Blaquiere (0 for 2, run, 3 BBs, .213) had a hit, and 4 Gnats (Raul Reyes, Josh Satin, Sean Ratliff, Joey August) had homers. Reyes (2), Satin (3), Wilmer (2), Eric Campbell (2), and August (2) had multi hit games.

Chris Schwinden was the beneficiary of the offensive outburst, despite pitching very badly (6 runs, 5 earned on 7 hits in 6 innings) picked up the win.

Brooklyn 3, Aberdeen 2 in 14 innings

Sam Honeck’s RBI groundout, and Tyler Vaughn’s RBI single tied the game at 2, where this game stayed until the bottom of the 14th, when Robbie Shields (who’d singled to lead off) scored on a wild pitch, ending the game. The Conies had just 9 hits and 5 walks in 14 innings, while going a putrid 1 for 12 (.083) with RISP, leaving 11 on base. John Servidio (0 for 5, run, 2 BBs, 2 Ks, .195), Sam Honeck (0 for 4, RBI, K, .313), Luis Rivera (0 for 2, K, .301) and Nick Santomauro (0 for 6, 3 Ks, .238) took 0-fers, while Tyler Vaughn, Nick Giarraputo and Robbie Shields each had 2 hit games.

Jim Fuller went the first 8 innings, allowing 2 runs (1 earned), on just 2 hits with 8 strikeouts. Erik Turgeon allowed a hit to the only batter he faced (in the 9th). Matias Carrillo, Michael Powers and Mike Lynn each followed with 2 scoreless innings, Lynn getting the win.

Kingsport 9, Greeneville 10

Tonight’s fun “The KMets pitching staff is pathetic” fact: They’ve given up 10 or more runs in 9 of their 33 games, and 9 or more runs in 12 games. Tonight it was Jhonathan Torres (6 in 5 innings) and Guillaume LeDuc (4 in 2 innings) who gave it up, with Torres taking his 3rd Appy League loss. After posting a 0.82 era in the GCL, Torres has a 5.79 era through 3 Appy League starts (though to be fair it was 3.00 before tonight’s meltdown).

The Mets, though, as noted frequently, also score a ton of runs. Thru 33 games, they’ve had 7 games of 10 or more runs, and 9 games of 9 or more runs. Tonight they hammered out 10 hits and drew 4 walks en route to 9 runs, and went just 3 for 12 with RISP, leaving 8 on base. Alonzo Harris (2), Jeff Flagg (3), and RJ Harris (2) had multi hit games, while Darrell Ceciliani (0 for 4, 2 runs, BB, K, .279), John Freeman (0 for 4, K, .135), and Kurt Steinhauer (0 for 4, BB, 2 Ks, .344) took 0-fers.
