F-Mart Was Raking Last Night
The Buffalo Bisons hit four home runs last night, but they still fell short of a miracle comeback and lost to the Gwinnett Braves 8-7
In that game, Val Pascucci hit a pinch hit home run, but the star of the night was right fielder Fernando Martinez, who clubbed a pair of home runs, his eighth and ninth of the season.
F-Mart went 3-5 with three runs scored and a pair of RBI from his solo shots. On the year, he is batting .267 with 27 RBI, 20 runs scored, and a stolen base in 50 games played.
The Mets have a couple of players having solid seasons for Buffalo this year.
In 25 games played, outfielder Lucas Duda is batting .340 with nine home runs and 27 RBIs. That’s more RBI’s than games played. Duda has a 1.123 OPS for the Bisons and of his 32 hits, 17 of them were extra-base hits.
Pat Misch continues to dominate in AAA and has a 9-3 record to go with 3.12 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. He has struck out 67 batters while walking 17 in 112 innings pitched.
The Bisons lead the International League with 101 home runs this season, yet surprisingly they have the second lowest strikeout rate in the league. Not a bad combination.
