The Mets bullpen closely resembled one of the manifestations of my stomach virus. And watching them triggered the other one. Things didn’t go that much better on the farm. The Lucies had the night off.
Charlotte 3, Buffalo 2 (10 innings)
Josh Satin singled in pinch runner Michael Fisher in the top of the ninth to tie the game at two, but in the bottom of the tenth, with two outs and a runner on third, Jack Egbert could not bail out Josh Edgin, giving up a single to seal the game for the Knights. Edgin’s ERA for the year is now 8.64. Jenry Mejia and Chris Young are on their way to Buffalo.
Binghamton 11, New Hampshire 4
Bombs away. The B-Mets slugged three home runs and hung a five spot on the Fisher Cats in the first inning. Matt den Dekker, Eric Campbell, and Josh Rodriguez all homered in the thirteen hit barrage. Campbell now owns a slash line of .308/.415/.500, Rodriguez knocked in four runs, and den Dekker extended his hit streak to seven. Reese Havens did not join in the fun, however, and is only hitting .188 since getting his season started. Gonzalez German got the win, going seven innings giving up three runs on eight of the New Hampshire’s’ eleven hits while walking three and striking out three.
Hickory 3, Savannah 1
Tyler Pill took the loss in this one but when you hit the double digits in strikeouts it’s not an entirely bad night. Pill went six strong, striking out ten while giving up two runs on six hits and a walk. TJ Rivera was 2 for 3 with a solo home run, which was all the scoring the Sand Gnats could muster.
