AAA International League: Buffalo 4/8/0, Indianapolis 3/9/0

Tobi Stoner had his best outing of the season, giving up a run on 4 hits and 4 walks in 6 innings for his first win of the season. Elmer Dessens picked up his 4th save.

The Bisons offense had 8 hits and a walk, while going 4 for 8 with RISP and leaving 2 on base. The two prospects in the lineup each had a hit and RBI today. Fernando DNP after being hit by a pitch in yesterday’s game, though he did come into the game in a double switch (no, not the one that controls two lights!) in the 9th.

AA Eastern League: Binghamton 13/15/0, New Hampshire 5/10/1

A day after their bullpen imploded, the Mets provided the pen with a plethora of insurance, racking up 15 hits and 5 walks, en route to a 13-5 pounding of the Fisher Cats. 8 of the Mets 15 hits were doubles, with Mike Nickeas having 3. Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Nick Evans, Lucas Duda and Marshall Hubbard also had multi hit games, while Carlos Guzman took the only 0-fer. Eddie Kunz was highly ineffective, but he got a win out of it. Kunz went 5 innings plus, giving up 4 runs on 5 hits and 3 walks.

A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie 3/7/0, Fort Myers 2/3/1

Finally, a vintage Kyle Allen outing. Allen had, by far, his easiest and best start of 2010, giving up 2 runs on 3 hits and 3 walks in 6.1 innings for his 3rd win of the season. Allen left after surrendering a 2 run homer, but that didn’t tarnish what was a magnificant effort, including 5.2 no hit innings.

The Mets offense did just enough tonight with 7 hits and 4 walks, while going just 1 for 5 with RISP, leaving 6 on base and striking out 12 times. Eric Campbell and Josh Satin had multi hit games, while Emmanuel Garcia (0 for 2, run, 2 BBs, K, .259), Reese Havens, Sean Ratliff (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .272), Raul Reyes (0 for 4, 3 Ks, .183) and Tony Maccani (0 for 4, K, .233) all took 0-fers.

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 11/14/5, Lakewood 7/8/1

Wilmer. Flores. He was cold this month (5 for 24), and had been in a 6 for 31 skid dating back to April 29th, but broke out of that in a big way with 3 hits, all for XBH, falling a single short of the cycle. He wasn’t the only one to have a huge game for Savannah, as Pedro Zapata had 4 hits, and Alonzo Harris had a pair of doubles. In the midst of hitting, Kai Gronauer took an 0-fer. The Gnats also committed 5 errors, which served to turn a 9-3 lead into a 9-7 lead in the 6th inning.

Jim Fuller had a shaky outing, going 5 innings while allowing 4 hits and 3 runs (all unearned due to various errors), but he walked 4, so it’s not like he wasn’t partially to blame. Lance Hoge had another horrible outing, giving up 3 hits and 4 runs (2 earned) in an inning. Erik Turgeon and Michael Powers combined to end the insanity and throw up 3 scoreless to end things.
