Minor League Report: May 15th

AAA: The 12-25 Tides have been struggling all season long. However, tonight a victory was in sight. Jason Scobie took the mound for the Tides on a rain stricken afternoon, and he was less than stellar tonight. Scobie pitched five innings, allowed four runs on six hits and four walks. Scobie's era is beyond comprehension, at 7.52. Last year Scobie won 16 games, however this year he may be looking at a demotion, or even a release if he keeps this up. Anderson Garcia pitched tremendously again, going 2.2 innings in relief of Scobie, allowing no runs on three hits, and lowering his era to an impresssive 1.32 over 19.2 innings. Thus far this season combined between AA and AAA Garcia has an outstanding 1.49. Heath Bell got the final four outs of the game for the save, all via strikeout. As for the offense, Lastings Milledge went 0-2 with a walk and three runs scored, and his averaged continued to drop, now at .287. Anderson Hernandez had the breakout game every Mets fan has been waiting for, however it the game was for the Tides. Hernandez went 4-5 with two doubles, a rbi, and a run scored.
AA: The Binghamton Mets had the night off tonight.
High A: Joshua Petersen hit a home run in tonight's Dunedin route over the St. Lucie Mets, 14-5. Petersen went 2-4 with a rbi and a run scored, while raising his average to .358 on the season. Defensive wiz, Jose Coronado, went 2-5 with two doubles, in tonight's loss. However, the real story tonight was that of Mets starting pitcher Jose Sanchez. In 3.1 innings Sanchez allowed an astounding 11 earned runs, balooning his era from 2.18 to 4.23. Wow, that reminds me of Jae Seo's thirteen run outing last year at AAA, however the only difference is I don't see Sanchez being promoted to the bigs and going 8-2. Although, there is always hope.
Low A: Hagerstown had the night off.
