EL AA: Binghamton 3/5/0, Portland 2/9/1

Michael Antonini had his best outing in a long long time (if not the whole season), allowing just 2 runs on 7 hits in 7 innings for his 7th win. Jose De La Torre picked up his first save of the season, after Ike Davis, returning from a few games off with sore ribs, homered in the 7th to give the Mets a 3-2 lead.

The Mets had just 5 hits and a walk on the game, and were 0 for 2 with RISP, but won anyway. Emmanuel Garcia (0 for 3, BB, 2 Ks, .248), Caleb Stewart (0 for 4, 3 Ks, .228), Salvador Paniagua (0 for 3, K, .202), Jose Coronado (0 for 2, RBI, .268), and Jon Malo (0 for 3, 2 Ks, .240) all took 0-fers. No Met had a multi hit game.

FSL A+: St. Lucie 1/3/1, Fort Myers 3/7/0, Game 1

Kirk Nieuwenhuis took an 0-fer. On with the recap?

The Mets were cooled off by the rain out, and then iced on by the Miracle in the opener of a twinight doubleheader, managing just 3 singles, and 1 run, after scoring 104 runs in their previous 14 games. Angel Calero allowed 3 runs (2 earned) over 5 innings, a decent enough outing, but fell to 3-10 on the year. The Mets were 0 for 5 with RISP and left 6 on base.

FSL A+: St. Lucie 5/9/2, Fort Myers 4/9/2, Game 2

Chris Schwinden’s high A debut was not a good one, he surrendered 3 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks in just 4.1 innings, but his offense was doing their job tonight, so he got off with a ND. Edgar Ramirez picked up his 3rd win, allowing a run on 3 hits in 2.2 innings.

The Mets offense, as I mentioned, did their job, with 9 hits and 4 walks in the nightcap, despite going just 2 for 12 (.167) with RISP, and leaving 9 on base. Stefan Welch and Brahiam Maldonado had homers tonight, going back to back as part of a 4 run 3rd inning. Kirk Nieuwenhuis (2) had the only multi hit game, while Hector Pellot (0 for 3, BB, 2 Ks, .267) took the only 0-fer.

SAL A: Savannah 4/13/1, Augusta 3/6/1 in 11 innings

Wilmer Flores’ walkoff RBI single in the 11th inning salvaged what was otherwise a forgetful day for the recently turned 18 year old shortstop, it was his first hit in 6 ABs. Jefry Marte left the game after making an awkward slide into home, no word on why (the way 2009 has gone…:whistles: (which I cannot actually do)). Jose Jimenez replaced him and went 0 for 4, BB, 2 Ks, .155. Eric Campbell (0 for 3, run, 2 BBs, K, .245) took the other 0-fer, while Sean Ratliff (4), Raul Reyes (2), and Mike Moras (A debut; 2) had multi hit games. The Gnats had 13 hits and drew 5 walks while going 6 for 16 (.375) with RISP, but left 13 on base.

Robert Carson had a good outing tonight, giving up just a run on 4 hits in 5 innings. John Church picked up the win with 2 scoreless innings, despite walking a pair in the 11th.

NYPL A-: Brooklyn 6/9/1, Vermont 7/16/2 in 10 innings

Wes Wrenn had a very poor outing tonight, getting oblierated for 7 hits and 5 runs in 2.1 innings, but the Conies battled back and got him off the hook. Brandon Sage took the loss, allowing a run in the top of the 10th.

The Conies had 9 hits and drew 4 walks tonight, while going 4 for 12 (.333) with RISP and leaving 6 on base. Jordany Valdespin (2), Richard Lucas (2) and Dock Doyle (3) had multi hit games, while Luis Rivera (0 for 5, K, .295), Sam Honeck (0 for 2, run, BB, K, .254), Nick Santomauro (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .234) and John Servidio (0 for 3, BB, 2 Ks, .184) took 0-fers.

APPY R: Kingsport 3/12/0, Greeneville 5/7/1

The Mets came from 3-1 down to tie it in the 9th, only to see Travis Babin give up a pair in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving him his first loss, and the Mets their 32nd. Zach Von Tersch had a good start, giving up a run on 4 hits in 6 innings, but it was for naught.

The Mets offense had 12 hits and drew a pair of walks, while going 3 for 10 with RISP, and leaving 10 on base. Ryan Mollica (0 for 5, 2 Ks, .269) took the only 0-fer, while Joe Bonfe (2), and Kurt Steinhauer (4) had multi hit games.
