AAA International League: Buffalo 11/13/0, Scranton 7/12/0

I guess the Bisons offense isn’t that bad, huh? They hammered out 13 hits and drew 5 walks en route to a wild 11-7 victory over the Yankees this afternoon. Prospects Josh Thole and Fernando Martinez were a combined 3 for 7 with 4 runs and 3 RBI. Fernando crushed his first homer of the season. Ruben Tejada chipped in with a pair of doubles for the Bisons, who were 6 for 14 (.429) with RISP, and left 6 on base, while striking out 3 times.

Pat Misch started and was meh (yes, I just used the word ‘meh’), giving up 6 hits and 3 runs in 5.2 innings. Elmer Dessens blew the save for him, however, when he allowed one of Mike O’Connor’s IHR to score. He picked up the win after Buffalo put up a 4 run bottom of the 8th.

It has been entirely too long since Kirk Nieuwenhuis made the headline, huh? Well…how’s a 5 for 6, 3 XBH night sound? He led the charge from atop the Mets lineup with those 5 hits.

The Mets overwhelmed the Sea Dogs pitching tonight, hammering out 14 hits, drawing 8 walks, and going a blistering 6 for 13 (.462) with RISP. On the flip side, they left 6 on base and struck 10 times.
