AA Eastern League: Binghamton 10/14/2, Portland 8/13/2

Kirk Nieuwenhuis may just be getting into one of his patented idiotic hot streaks, after 4 XBH yesterday, he had 3 more hits today, including 2 more doubles, leading the Mets to a 14 hit, 10 run attack and a 10-8 victory. The Mets also had 2 walks, while striking out 4 times, and were 7 for 17 (.412) with RISP and left 8 on base. Nieuwenhuis, Sean Ratliff and Mike Nickeas had 3 hit games, while Raul Reyes had another multi hit game, his 6th in 12 games with Binghamton. Nick Evans and Jon Malo (0 for 4, run, RBI, .222) took 0-fers.

Roy Merritt got the win with 1.2 scoreless innings in relief, after Eric Niesen and Eddie Kunz got torched for 8 runs between them, 4 each. Niesen in 1.2 innings, and Kunz in 3.2 innings. Come Rule V time, the Mets should consider DFAing Eddie Kunz, he’s a BUST of a prospect, so much for the quick moving reliever idea in 2007 (haha).

A+ Florida State League: St. Lucie

The game was suspended in the top of the 8th with Charlotte ahead 6-0. Robert Carson was awesome again, giving up 3 runs (2 earned) on 7 hits in 7 innings, but unless the Met rally, he’ll get tagged with his 5th loss of the season. He threw 89 pitches, 64 for strikes. 4Carson’s kicked it into another gear over his last 7 starts, he’s gone at least 7 innings in 4 of the 7, and had gone 3-2 (counting his outing tonight as a loss) with a 3.67 era in 41.2 innings, and a 11/35 BB/K ratio. Over his last 5 outings, he’s given up 10 earned in 32.1 innings, for a 2.78 era, and a 7/28 BB/K ratio.

A South Atlantic League: Savannah 1/3/1, Rome 0/4/1

John Church had his best professional outing to date, with a 4 hit shutout over 7 innings for his 4th win of the season, and Michael Powers notched his 10th save with a perfect 9th. The Gnats had just 3 hits and a 3/6 BB/K, but it was enough tonight. They went 2 for 8 with RISP and left 6 on base.
