FSL A+: St. Lucie 3/4/3, Lakeland 5/5/4

The big story tonight was Billy Wagner pitching an inning of relief, he threw 10 pitches, 8 strikes, and struck out a pair in a perfect 7th. The bounceback is almost as important, so how Wagner feels tomorrow will be a key test.

Wagner relieved Tim Stronach, who since his near perfect game/no hitter has turned in 2 less then stellar starts, tonight giving up 5 hits and 4 runs (2 earned) in 6 innings for his 3rd loss. Josh Stinson finished up with 2 innings of hitless relief, around an UER.

The Mets had just 4 hits and 3 walks in the game, while going 0 for 9 with RISP, leaving 7 on base. Kirk Nieuwenhuis (1 for 4, run, K, .251), Zach Lutz (2 for 4, .283) and Francisco Pena (1 for 4, run, .219) had the hits for the Mets.

Kingsport 10/18/0, Greeneville 2/3/5

This is what happens when the pitching for the Mets shows up, when combined with their powerful offense. Blowout. The Mets, along with their 18 hits, drew 4 walks while going 9 for 19 (.474) with RISP, leaving 9 on base. Alonzo Harris (0 for 5, .305) took the only 0-fer. He, John Semel (1) and Gerad Mochizuki (1) were the only Mets to fail registering a multi hit game.

The beneficiary of the offensive explosion tonight was Eduardo Aldama, who picked up his 3rd win with 5 innings of 3 hit, 2 run ball. Angel Cuan pitched 3 hitless innings in relief, with 6 Ks.
