A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie 5/10/0, Bradenton 4/10/2 in 11 innings

Stefan Welch and Richard Lucas hit back to back homers in the bottom of the 9th to tie the game at 4, and then Lucas stroked a walkoff single in the bottom of the 11th to win it for the Mets, 5-4. Sean Ratliff, as well as Welch and Lucas, had multi hit games, while Matt Bouchard (0 for 5, K, .192), Eric Campbell (0 for 5, .250), Raul Reyes (0 for 3, BB, .176), and Jean Luc Blaquiere (0 for 4, K, .225) took 0-fers. Nice, huh? Jean Luc is hitting .225, and Kirk is hitting .321, further proving that Kirk > Jean Luc ;)

Jeurys Familia started today and had his best outing of the season, going 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 4 hits in 6 innings, but he took a ND. Manuel Alvarez escaped 10th inning trouble, then pitched a scoreless 11th to pick up the win, his 2nd. Rhiner Cruz allowed 2 runs on 2 hits and 3 walks in back of Familia, Cruz has struggled mightily, posting an ugly 6.55 era through 6 APPs (10.1 innings).

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 6/11/0, Hickory 5/11/6

Jeff Flagg had a walkoff single today, after Wilmer Flores was walked with 1st and 3rd, 1 out in the 9th to load the bases. The Mets need to get someone behind Wilmer to prevent this sort of thing, because Jeff Flagg’s .217 isn’t cutting it. Pedro Zapata, Flagg, Dock Doyle and Alex Gregory had multi hit games, while Jefry Marte, Cesar Puello and Alonzo Harris took 0-fers. The Gnats were 3 for 11 (.273) with RISP, left 9 on base, and struck out 7 times, while walking thrice. Mark Cohoon started the game and was pretty good, allowing just 2 runs on 6 hits in 6 innings, but he got a ND after Brandon Sage blew the game. Sage picked up a vulture win.

cf Pedro Zapata 2 for 4, 3 runs, BB, .279
