EL AA: Binghamton 2/7/1, New Britain 7/11/1

The Mets faced an old friend tonight, Deolis Guerra, and Guerra shut down the Ike-less Mets got 6.2 innings, allowing just 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits. It was Guerra’s second straight solid outing.

Onto the Mets, who didn’t do much against Guerra’s replacement, either. Overall, the Mets had 7 hits and a walk in the game, while going just 1 for 4 with RISP, and leaving 5 on base. Chris Mason got the start in place of Brad Holt, who is suffering from the flu, and took the loss, giving up 4 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks in 5 innings. Ike Davis didn’t play, he’s got sore ribs. The top 3 in the order, Ruben Tejada (0 for 4, .285), Jose Coronado (0 for 3, BB, 2 Ks, .270) and Josh Thole (0 for 3, .329) went a combined 0 for 10. Emmanuel Garcia (0 for 2, RBI, 2 Ks, .247) also took an 0-fer, while Shawn Bowman (2) and Caleb Stewart (2) had multi hit games.

FSL A+: St. Lucie 10/13/1, Sarasota 4/9/0

Mr. Red – meet the buzzsaw. It was Sarasota’s turn to face the St. Lucie Mets wrath tonight, as the Mets hammered out 13 hits and drew 3 walks, while going a stellar 6 for 11 (.556) with RISP. The Mets left just 4 runners on base. Kirk Nieuwehuis (2, HR), Stefan Welch (2), Seth Williams (2) and Hector Pellot (3) had multi hit games, every regular except Brahiam Maldonado (0 for 3, run, BB, .263) had a hit. Nieuwenhuis (4), and Pellot (5) had huge RBI games.

Angel Calero was the recipient of tonight’s ourburst, he went the front 5, and wasn’t very effective, giving up 4 runs (2 earned, Reese Havens’ 21st error) on 8 hits. Edgar Ramirez worked the final 4 innings, giving up just a hit, for his 2nd save.

SAL A: Savannah 1/7/3, Augusta 2/7/2 in 11 innings, Game 1

Jeurys Familia had a very good outing tonight, despite having an inverse GO/FO ratio (a predominantly GB pitcher, his ratio was 7/10 tonight). He gave up just 2 hits and 3 walks in 6 innings, and was in line for the victory, before Rhiner Cruz blew the save by allowing a run in the 7th. Phillips Orta took the loss by allowing a run in the bottom of the 11th inning, his 2nd loss with the Gnats.

The Gnats had just 7 hits and 3 walks in the game, while going an abysmal 1 for 14 (.071) with RISP, and leaving 11 men on base. Josh Satin (2), and Nick Giarraputo (2) had multi hit games, while Jefry Marte, Wilmer Flores, Raul Reyes (0 for 5, 2 Ks, .241), and Evan LeBlanc (0 for 4, K, .156) all took 0-fers.

SAL A: Savannah 1/4/2, Augusta 6/11/1

Robert Carson had a very rough outing from the getgo, giving up 2 hits and 2 walks in the first (but only one run), and though he settled down through the next 3 innings, he got knocked out of the box in the 5th, and his overall line was not a good one, with 8 hits and 4 runs given up in 5 innings.

The Gnats offense managed just a run on 4 hits and 2 walks in the nightcap, going 0-fer (3) with RISP, and leaving 4 on base.

NYPL A-: Brooklyn 4/8/1, State College 3/9/2

Collin McHugh had a second straight very impressive outing tonight, giving up just 4 hits in 7 innings with 7 strikeouts, to pick up his 7th win of the season. Over his last 4 outings, McHugh’s struck out 33 in 25 innings. Matias Carillo went for a 2 inning save, but ran into massive 9th inning trouble, and had to be bailed out by Michael Powers, who allowed 2 of Carillo’s runs to score, but didn’t give up the tying run.

The Conies offense had 8 hits and 5 walks, while going 2 for 7 (.286) with RISP, and leaving 10 on base. Jordany Valdespin (2) had the only multi hit game for the Cyclones, while Nick Santomauro (0 for 5, 3 Ks, .243) and Scott Grimes (0 for 4, run, K, .250) took the only 0-fers.

RJ Harris (2), Cesar Puello (2), Pedro Zapata (3), and Juan Torres (2) had multi hit games, while Darrell Ceciliani (0 for 2, .231, left in the 3rd, no word on why), Joe Bonfe (0 for 5, K, .327) and Jeff Flagg (0 for 3, run, 2 BBs, .299) took 0-fers.
