A South Atlantic League: Savannah 3/5/2, Asheville 7/15/0

Armando Rodriguez had a FANTASTIC outing tonight, giving up just a run on 8 hits in 6 innings with 12 strikeouts, but he got a ND after Gabriel Zavala had his first horrific outing as a pitcher, getting torched for 3 runs on 4 hits in 0.1 innings, and being bailed out by Sam Martinez, who stranded his 3 IHRs.

R Appalachian League: Kingsport 7/8/0, Danville 1/3/1

Welcome to 2010, Mr. Aldama. 8 innings of 3 hit ball from Eduardo in his best outing of the season as the Mets crushed Danville, 7 to 1. The Mets had 8 hits and a 4/7 BB/K, while going 5 for 15 with RISP and leaving 7 on base. Brandon Brown and Aderlin Rodriguez had multi hit games, while Chase Greene, ZeErika McQueen (0 for 4, K, .276) and Taylor Freeman (0 for 4, 2 Ks, .125) took 0-fers. In my opinion, Freeman serves no purpose on the Mets except to take playing time away from Albert Cordero, Nelfi Zapata and Amauris Valdez, and so should be cut.

cf Chase Greene 0 for 4, RBI (7), K, .219
ss Brandon Brown 2 for 5, run, RBI, .234
3b Aderlin Rodriguez 2 for 4, RBI (40), BB, .304
1b Lucas Stewart 1 for 4, run, RBI, BB, .286
c Albert Cordero 1 for 3, 2 runs, HR (7), 2 RBI (30), BB, K, .271
rf John Semel 1 for 4, run, 2b, RBI, K, .285
2b Ray Van Gurp 1 for 3, 2 runs, BB, K, .270, 2 SB (5)
Eduardo Aldama 8 IP, 3 H, ER, 6 Ks, 5.17 era, W (2-2), 8:7:6
Peter Birdwell IP, BB, K, 3.54 era, 1:1:1
