Cape bound – and I’ve got the XM Satellite radio to keep me company. And the wife…her too….
Buffalo 8, Pawtucket 7
Kevin Millwood! Miguel Bautista! It’s the marquee matchup of 2001! As an added bonus, the Herd brought in Gustavo Chacin out of the bullpen while the Paw Sox countered with former Met great Royce Ring. Runelvys Hernandez wanted to know if he could play. Rueben Tejada still only had one hit.
Binghamton 13, Portland 2
Raul Reyes (2 run), Brahaim Maldonado (solo) and Jordanny Valdespin (2 run) all cracked homeruns as the B-Mets produced another thrashing. Jordanny actually had four RBI on the night as Wally must be wondering where this was earlier in the season. On the hill Robbie Carson had a good night, picking up the win whilst going 6 IP, 2R, 1ER, 5H, 1BB, 6K’s. Even Brad Holt had another ok outing, throwing a scoreless inning in relief and getting the ERA under 5.00
Daytona 5, St. Lucie 3
The Lucies played some loose defense behind Scott Moviel, leading to three unearned runs. However, when you give up 11 hits in 6 innings Mr. Moviel, you will be on the short end quite often. Mike Baxter had two hits and knocked in a run, and Jefry Marte, Wilmer Flores and Corey Vaughn all had a hit – though Vaughn struck out three times.
Savannah 5, Lexington 4
Gonzalez German struck out nine in 5 innings, but left with the game tied at 4. Chase Huchingson (who got the “W”) and Ronny Morla (who notched the save) combined for four shutout innings to seal the victory for the Sand Gnats. Albert Cordero remains hot, going 1 for 3 with a run and three RBI.
Brooklyn 9, State College 5
Cole Frenzel hit his first professional home run, and Travis Taijeron hit a grand slam in the top of the ninth to break a 4-4 tie. Danny Muno chipped in three hits and scored two runs to raise his average to .375.
