It was a real rough night in Mets land:
Columbus 5, Buffalo 0
Jordany Valdespin doubled and Luis Figueroa singled, and those two hits were all the offense the Bisons could muster. Zach Lutz took home a golden sombrero.
Binghamton 6, Erie 4
Brandon Moore notched his 10th win of the year after giving up 4 runs on 7 hits through 6 innings, striking out 6. Erik Turgeon threw three shutout innings out of the bullpen.

Matt Den Dekker also homered, his 9th since being promoted to AA and his 15th of the season.
Fort Myers 2, St. Lucie 1 (5 innings)
They were hoping to play 2, but ended up just playing 1 rain-shortened game. Scott Moviel pitched a scoreless first inning and then Greg Peavey took over, giving up 2 runs (2 earned) in 3.2 innings. The Lucies had just 3 hits, scoring only on a Gilbert Gomez homerun. Cory Vaughn and Robbie Shields also singled; Shields saw his first action in nearly a month.
Rome 6, Savannah 2

Rivera all doubled. Richard Lucas hit his 6th homer of the year.
Danville 7, Kingsport 5
