INT AAA: Buffalo 6/7/2, Columbus 9/12/0

Tobi Stoner and Eddie Kunz had this one for the Bisons, and it was ugly. Stoner gave up 5 in 5.1 innings, Kunz gave up 4 in 2.2 innings, though he got all his outs via groundball. Buffalo made a late charge, but fell short. Nick Evans homered in the loss, his 6th in Buffalo. He’s now batting .256/.292/.477/.770 since returning to the Bisons from the Mets in July.

EL AA: Binghamton 5/11/1, Harrisburg 3/9/1

Dylan Owen bounced back from a miserable outing his last time out (3 ip, 6 h, 6 er, 4/2 bb/k) with a very good outing tonight, giving up just a run on 5 hits in 6.2 innings for his 4th EL victory. Since coming back to Binghamton from a 3 start demotion to St. Lucie, Owen has been brilliant, with a 3.76 era over 9 starts, and a 4-2 record. Removing his start 2 turns ago, the numbers are even better, with a 2.85 era in 8 starts, and a 4-1 record, with an average of 6 innings per start. Roy Merritt came in with the bases loaded and 2 out, and escaped that jam, and then Connor Robertson came in with the bases loaded and 1 out, allowing 1 of those runs to score, but nothing further, picking up his 9th save of the season.

The Mets offense gathered 11 hits and drew 6 walks, while going 5 for 16 (.313) with RISP, leaving 12 on base.
