AA Eastern League: Binghamton 6/7/1, Bowie 3/8/1

Brad Holt had another mediocre outing today, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits in 4.2 innings, but his offense got him off the hook, as did Manuel Alvarez, got got one big out for his 3rd AA victory. Roy Merritt worked 2 scoreless for his 5th save.

The Mets offense had 7 hits and drew 2 walks, while going 3 for 7 (.429) with RISP, leaving 3 on, and striking out just 3 times. Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Reese Havens had multi hit games, while Nick Evans, Jose Coronado (0 for 3, .235), Mike Nickeas (0 for 2, BB, K, .282) and Jon Malo (0 for 3, .237) took 0-fers.

A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie 4/8/3, Dunedin 3/8/0

Robert Carson pitched excellent baseball tonight, giving up just 2 runs on 6 hits and a walk in 7+ innings, but after Jose Bierd allowed his IHR to score, plus one of his own, Carson took a ND. Bierd blew the save and picked up a cheap win. Emary Frederick picked up his 2nd save.

Jordany Valdespin left in the 7th inning after striking out. He was HBP earlier in the game. The Mets offense had 8 hits and a walk, while going 2 for 5 with RISP, leaving 5 on base, and striking out 9 times. Since Valdespin was removed from the game, the Mets moved Josh Satin, the DH, into the field, thus losing the DH, and having the pitchers go into Valdespin’s spot, the 2 hole (I think, it’s so rare, and I’ve never seen it, lol). It doesn’t matter, since none of the pitchers came up to bat, anyway.

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 8/12/1, Kannapolis 7/9/4 in 10 innings

I’d wager at least HALF of the games between these two teams have gone extra innings. It’s nutso. Today, it was the offense that was front and center, with the Gnats putting together 12 hits and 3 walks, while Kannpolis put up 9 hits and 7 walks. Kai Gronauer, Rafael Fernandez, Cesar Puello and Luis Rivera had multi hit games, while Wilmer took the only 0-fer. Wilmer is now 11 for his last 81.

Jim Fuller and Sam Martinez got ripped for 7 runs on 7 hits in a combined 5.1 innings, but John Church and Michael Powers worked a combined 4.2 scoreless, with Powers getting the win, his 3rd.
