Check out the what the Mets minor leaguers are up to. This form Wally Gobetz over atMets Listserv. luis garcia made his best case for a recall. he went 2-for-5 with a 3 run homer off former tide mke bacsik in last night's 7-4 win over the scranton/wikes-barre red barons. jae seo made his best case for heilman's recall giving up 3 runs in the first inning. the bullpen was lights out: mcginley threw a scoreless sixth, followed by 2 scoreless innings from ring and then bell striking out the side in the 9th for the save. daubach keyed a 4-run 7th with a 2-run double and then scored the final run on calloway's RBI single. jeff keppinger led the way with 4 hits. the tides and barons play two today in scranton (which if you've never been, is an awful AAA stadium...i had the luxury of staying spending a few nights up there for business and stayed in the hotel across the way, taking in a game...it's like a smaller version of veteran's stadium) with bob keppel and jose santiago getting the starts. the b-mets lost 6-5 to the akron aeros in the bottom of the 9th off relievers luz portobanco and tim mcnab after coming back in the top half. the mets took their first lead of the game when bobby malek led off the inning with a bloop hit, was sacrified to 2nd by pinchitter prentice redman and then scored on wayne lydon's single. lydon took third on an errant pickoff attempt and was driven in by baldiris. ken chenard got the start and after striking out the first two batters he faced, walked the next two before giving up a three run homer (he'd fit right in with the big club..but i still say this guy needs to be moved to the bullpen). jay caligiuri hit a 2-run homer and jacobs had an RBI single. petit gets the start today. the hagerstown suns improved to 2-0 by beating the west virginia power despite collecting just 3 hits. dante brinkley hit a solo homer in the first and blake eager made the lead with 5 shutout innings allowing just 1 hit and striking out 2. the suns extended the led on 2 sac flies by mike carp and ambiorix concepcion in the 6th. closer marcelo perez picked up his first save of the year. ------------------------------ < |
