Hats off to Dillon Gee! HI success this year has not only been a boon to the big club but raised the reputation of a farm system that is oft maligned, sometimes unfairly.
Indianapolis 12, Buffalo 6
In the span of 25 hours, the Bison went from crusher to crushee. Mark Cohoon, Mike O’Connor and Dylan Owen absorbed the punishment for the pitching staff. I’ll spare you the details. Zach Lutz went 2 for 5 with a run, and Fernando Martinez was 2 for 4.
Trenton 7, Binghamton 3
You might want to say that the ‘bad’ Brad Holt is back. You might want to say that this is just Brad Holt, and it is what it is now. And you might point to last night’s like of 3 IP, 4 hits, 7R, 5ER, 6BB, 3K and 2WP. But you’d be wrong; he also threw in a balk to keep things fresh. And we thought he couldn’t surprise us anymore. On the bright side Jordanny Valdespin went 4 for 5 with a solo home run. Josh Satin also went 2 for 5. Sorry to say this, but the B-Mets are just not very good this year.
Charlotte 9, St. Lucie 3
The PSL Mets are a good team, tho you wouldn’t know it from last night. This game was tied going into the sixth when the Stone Crabs put up a six spot to break this one open. Scott Moviel gave up 7 runs in 5.1 innings, but only 4 of those were earned. He wasn’t helped by two key errors in the fateful sixth. Matt Den Dekker helped the cause with a 2-run homer, tho he made an error as well.
Savannah 8, Augusta 1
Greg Peavey tossed six strong innings and got shutout relief from Adam Kolarek and Gabriel Zavala. Robbie Shields went 2 for 4 with two RBI, but Darrel Ceciliani and Cory Vaughn were held hitless.
