Minor League Report: May 22nd

AAA: The Norfolk Tides had off tonight.
AA: For the B-Mets Willie Collazo took the mound against Portland. Outside of Pelfrey and Soler Collazo has been the B-Mets most consistent starter this season, and tonight, despite getting the loss, was no different. In the 26 year old's seven innings pitched tonight he allowed three earned runs, four in total on nine hits and one walk. Collazo's record on the season is now 3-3 with a 2.35 era. With Alay Soler coming to the major leagues to pitch in the Phillie series the Mets now have only one Cuban prospect left in AA. His name is Michael Abreu, and he is 30 years old. However, despite his age and lack of major league experience Abreu is hitting .365 after going 3-4 tonight with a home run and three rbi. Jorge Padilla, the number three hitter for the B-Mets tonight, also went 3-4 driving in one run and scoring one as well. C/1b/DH Andy Wilson went 1-4 with a double off of starter Jose Vaquedano.
High A: Joshua Petersen went 3-5 in tonight's 5-6 loss to Fort Myers. Petersen knocked in one run and raised his season average to .351 through 134 at bats. Defensive wiz Jose Coronado went 2-4 with a double, a run scored, and one run batted in, however Coronado's average on the season is only .195. Ambiorix Concepcion went 1-4 with a walk, while lowering his season average to an impressive .320. Concepcion may finally be finding his stroke, or he may simply be a 23 year old overmatching single A pitching. Salvador Aguilar pitched for the St. Lucie Mets in the loss, and in his six innings of work Aguilar allowed six runs, five earned on seven hits and three walks.
Low A: With 17 year old Fernando Martinez injured the Suns have gone with seemingly a different leadoff hitter each night, and tonight it was Joe Holden's turn. Holden responded well, going 3-4 with a walk, an rbi, and two runs scored. Holden's average is now .368, although he has only batted 38 times. Firstbaseman Nick Evans went 1-4 with two rbi's, raising his average to a lack-luster .226. Jonathan Sanchez hit a home run, while going 1-4 in the 4-2 win over Lakewood. Starter Eric Brown went 5.1 innings, allowing only one run on four walks and two hits. Brown's victory lowered his era to an astronimcal 7.14. Kevin Tomasiewicz pitched 2.2 perfect innings to help secure the victory. I pray that Tomasiewicz does not get traded to the Royals, because if there was a 3-4-1 double play than the box score would say Mientkiewicz-Grudzielanek-Tomasiewicz, talk about a mouth full.
