It was another rough night down on the farm. Let’s take a look:
Indianapolis 6, Buffalo 3
After some weekend travels Chris Schwinden lasted only 4 innings, giving up 4 runs (2 earned). Justin Hampson followed with 3 shutout innings and Josh Edgin pitched a scoreless and hitless inning, striking out 2. The Bisons committed 3 errors and accumulated 8 hits, all singles.
New Britain 3, Binghamton 0
Collin McHugh was fine, but still took the loss after giving up 2 runs on 8 hits over 6 innings. Brad Holt gave up the 3rd run in 2 innings of work. Make it 17 for Matt Den Dekker, who extended his hitting streak going 2 for 5, although he did strikeout 3 times. Jefry Marte was 1 for 3 with a walk and now has a 7-game hit streak of his own. In his last 10 games he has 14 hits, including all 3 of his homeruns on the season. Reese Havens had the night off.
Dayton 6, St. Lucie 5, 10 innings
Put your finger on the panic button because St. Lucie has lost 3 in a row, dropping their record to 34-11 and their division lead down to 11 games. Cory Mazzoni started and gave up 3 runs in 5 innings while striking out 4. Jack Leathersich struck out 3, but let up 2 runs in 2.2 innings. John Church walked 2 and let up the winning run in the 10th. Alonzo Harris was 2 for 5 with 2 doubles and an RBI. Richard Lucas homered and drove in 2 runs.
Savannah 5, Charleston 3
Charley Thurber tripled home 2 runs as part of a 3-run 8th inning to salvage the night for Mets affiliates. Alex Panteliodis started but only lasted 4 innings. After Randy Fontanez gave up all 3 runs, Chasen Bradford threw 2 scoreless frames to earn the win and T.J. Chism pitched a perfect 9th to get the save. Thurber was the only Sand Gnat to have a multi-hit game. T.J. Rivera doubled and scored 2 runs. Gilbert Gomez was 1 for 2 with a double and a walk.
