Buffalo 5, Rochester 9, Game 1

Tobi Stoner’s had 4 starts in AAA since posting a 2.68 era in AA, and of them, 2 have been quality, and only one has been really good. Today, he had an awful outing, getting raked around for 8 hits and 6 runs in 5.2 innings for his second loss. Jon Switzer came in with 2 on in the 6th inning, and allowed both runners to score, giving Stoner the loss, and taking his 2nd BS.

Binghamton 1, Erie 3

Eric Niesen had his second good outing in his last 3 starts, giving up just a run on 5 hits over 5 innings, but he took a ND. Edgar Ramirez took the loss, giving up the tiebreaking run in the 8th inning (actually an IHR Moy Merritt allowed to score). Merritt also allowed a run of his own, providing the final margin of defeat.

The Mets had just 6 hits and 4 walks, while going 0 for 5 with RISP and leaving 10 on base. The lone run came on Ike Davis’ 2nd EL HR. Jon Malo (0 for 5, K, .275), Caleb Stewart (0 for 3, 2 Ks, .176) and Shawn Bowman (0 for 3, BB, 3 Ks, .288) took 0-fers.

St. Lucie 4, Jupiter 8

Jeff Kaplan got hammered for 9 hits and 6 runs (4 earned; 4 Met errors) in 5 innings for his 3rd loss in the FSL, and 5th overall.

The Mets mounted a late charge with 3 in the 7th and 1 in the 8th, but were down 7-0 beforehand, so they came up well short. They had 7 hits and drew 4 walks, but were just 1 for 5 with RISP and left 4 on base. Kirk Nieuwenhuis (0 for 4, .240), Carlos Guzman (0 for 3, BB, .268), Richard Pena (0 for 2, .250, HBP) and Jake Eigsti (0 for 3, .193) took 0-fers. Richard Pena left the game in the 7th after getting hit by a pitch. Greg Veloz had the only multi hit game.

Chris Schwinden pitched well for 6 innings, allowing just 2 runs on 8 hits and 2 walks for his 5th win of the season. Rhiner Cruz pitched a perfect 9th for his 14th save.

The Gnats offense had 11 hits and drew a pair of walks, while going a putrid 1 for 13 with RISP and leaving 8 on base. Raul Reyes, Sean Ratliff, Stefan Welch and Jefry Marte had multi hit games, while Wilmer, Eric Campbell (0 for 5, K, .273), and Evan LeBlanc took 0-fers.

Brooklyn 3, TriCity 0

Jim Fuller has yet to allow an earned run in the 2009 season, he’s gone 19 innings, allowing just 2 unearned runs, with a 1.00 WHIP and 18 Ks. Tonight he went 6 innings, allowing 6 hits and striking out 5. Mike Lynn picked up the save with 3 innings of 1 hit relief.

The Cones offense had 7 hits and 5 walks in the game, while going just 2 for 10 with RISP and leaving 7 on base. They also hit into 3 DPs. Sam Honeck had a multi hit game, as did Dock Doyle, while John Servidio (0 for 3, run, BB, K, .190), James Ewing (0 for 4, K, .143, E (2)), Nick Giarraputo (0 for 4, K, .218), Nick Santomauro (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .200) and Juan Centeno (0 for 2, 2 BBs, .278, E (2)) all took 0-fers.

Kingsport 7, Greeneville 9

Yet another late game bullpen malfunction bedeviled the Mets tonight, as Luis Rojas and Julio Bello combined to give up 4 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks in the 6th inning, forcing Samuel Taveras to be pushed into 3 innings of work (he is typically a 1 inning closer). Naturally, Taveras, unused to throwing so much in a single outing, gave up 2 runs on 3 hits and a walk in his 3rd inning (the 9th), sending the Mets to the loss.

The offense certainly did it’s part with 8 hits, 3 walks and 7 runs. However, they were a beyond putrid 1 for 13 (.077) with RISP and left 7 on base. Joe Bonfe and John Semel had multi hit games, while RJ Harris (0 for 5, RBI, 2 Ks, .171), John Freeman (0 for 3, BB, K, .212) and Tyler Howe (0 for 3, run, 2 Ks, .227) took 0-fers.
