Plenty of wins last night, at least from A-ball on down. A former Met bested the Bisons, a future Met went yard for the second straight game, and there were plenty of good pitching performances from both starters and relievers, it’s just a shame one of those didn’t come from the top prospect in action last night. Let’s have a look:
Scranton W/B 6, Buffalo 4
This game featured a pitching matchup between John Maine and Jeurys Familia. Familia gave up a 4-spot in the 1st inning, but rebounded and ended up lasting 6 innings, giving up 5 runs on 10 hits, but with no walks and 7 strikeouts. Meanwhile, John Maine picked up the win giving up 2 unearned runs over 6 innings, although he had 3 wild pitches, which was more than Familia’s 2. Ryota Igarashi got the save for the Yankees. Josh Satin, Lucas Duda, and Val Pascucci all had doubles, but other than that the Bisons offense struggled to get going.
