EL AA: Binghamton 7/10/0, Reading 5/6/2

Brad Holt had an uneven outing, with 4 good innings to start, and then 1.1 rough ones to end, Holt ended up allowing 5 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks in 5.1 innings, good enough for his 3rd win of the season (in Binghamton). The bullpen followed with 3.2 scoreless in relief, with Connor Robertson picking up his 10th EL save.

The Mets offense had 10 hits and drew 5 walks, while going a stellar 4 for 14 (.286) with RISP, leaving 9 on base. Josh Thole (2), and Jose Coronado (2), had the only multi hit games for the Mets, no regular took an 0-fer. Coronado is hitting .417 over his last 6 games (10 for 24). Josh Thole, who is hitting .225 in August (9 for 40), hasn’t batted below .310 in any month this season (April .383, May .361, June .310, July .348).

FSL A+: St. Lucie 5/6/0, Jupiter 3/6/2

Billy Wagner may have thrown his final rehab inning tonight, reportedly he will be activated on Sunday from his rehab. Tonight he fired another scoreless inning with 2 more strikeouts, in back of Scott Moviel.

Scott Moviel had his best FSL outing of the season (some, like me, would contend it was his first good one), giving up just a run on 2 hits in 6 innings for his first win. Josh Stinson worked the final 1.1 innings for his 3rd save.

The Mets offense parlayed 6 hits and 4 walks into 5 runs, despite going just 1 for 7 (.149) with RISP, and leaving 8 on base. Reese Havens (0 for 4, RBI (38), .225)), Kirk Nieuwenhuis (0 for 4, .249), Seth Williams (0 for 3, run, K, .262), and Luis Rivera (0 for 1, RBI, 2 BBs, .125) all took 0-fers, while Stefan Welch (2) had the lone multi hit game for the Mets. Zach Lutz got the day off.

SAL A: Savannah 5/8/2, Delmarva 4/10/1

Robert Carson had a short but effective outing (he did throw 90+ pitches), giving up a run on 5 hits in 5 innings. Rhiner Cruz picked up the win with a scoreless 9th, his 2nd.

The Gnats offense had 8 hits, but drew 8 walks, while going 3 for 12 with RISP, and leaving 11 on base. Jean Luc Blaquiere (2), and Jose Jimenez (2) had multi hit games, while Wilmer Flores, Sean Ratliff (0 for 5, .269), Eric Campbell (0 for 1, BB, .247), Evan LeBlanc (0 for 3, BB, K, .167) and Imbewer Alvarez (0 for 3, 2 Ks, .213) took 0-fers.

NYPL A-: Brooklyn 6/9/0, Oneonta 5/8/1

The Cyclones built up a 6-2 lead after 7, and had to withstand a late Tigers rally, with Michael Powers allowing a run in the 9th, but nothing further to pick up his 12th save, protecting the win for Collin McHugh, who went the first 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits with 7 Ks.

The Cyclones offense had 9 hits and 6 walks, but went just 3 for 15 with RISP, and left 9 on base. Nick Santomauro (3), and Alex Gregory (2) had multi hit games, while Ralph Henriquez (0 for 3, run, RBI, BB, K, .225), Nick Giarraputo (0 for 3, run, BB, .208) and Matt Gaski (0 for 2, RBI, BB, .228) took 0-fers.

APPY R: Kingsport 4/8/0, Johnson City 5/12/2

Jhonathan Torres had a very subpar outing tonight, giving up 7 hits and walking 4 in 4 innings, though he somehow limited the damage to 2 runs. Zach Rosenbaum took the eventual loss by giving up a run in the 7th.

The Mets offense had 8 hits and 2 walks, while going 2 for 8 with RISP, and leaving 5 on base.
