Minor League Recap: June 12th

AAA: In Durham the tides took on the second place Durham Bulls, a team with a lot of young talented prospects such as BJ Upton and Elijah Dukes. Jason Scobie did note fare well against the talented team, pitching only 1.2 innings and allowing seven runs on seven hits and two walks. However, Mitch Wylie, the Mets 2005 Rule V draft pick, pitched five scoreless innings of relief for the Tides. Steve Schmoll pitched the end of the eighth and the ninth innings, allowing one run on three hits. Schmoll, the other reliever acquired in the Jae Seo deal, has a 3.18 era this season and has yet to be considered a real contender for a call up. Jeff Keppinger oddly played leftfield for the Tides and he even had an outfield assist, in addition to going 1-2 with two walks from the plate. Anderson Hernandez went 1-4 in the leadoff spot, and has seemingly gone back to his former reputation of all glove and not much offense. Hernandez is hitting .274 in AAA and .263 combined with A. Victor Diaz, on the other hand, has begun to heat up in two places. The first is on the ball field, re-discovering his power stroke the last few games, and after getting two hits yesterday he raised his average to .256. Secondly, Diaz has been rumored to be on his way out to the Cardinals. Although, an eventual trade to the Cards seems unlikely.
AA: The B-Mets had the night off.
High A: The St. Lucie Mets played two seven inning games as part of a double-header yesterday, and the Mets lost both games. In game one Palm beach scored at least once in each of the first four innings, and ended the day with a 11-5 victory. Mayque Quintero and Chuck Smith each pitched three innings, allowed seven and four runs respectivley. Jesus Flores went 1-2 with two rbi, and raised his average to .271. Ambiorix Concepcion, Mike Carp, and Enrique Cruz all went 1-4 in the loss. In the game two loss the Mets were four hit by Blake Hawksworth and Mike Sillman over seven innings. Concepcion, Coles, Carp, and Petersen all had one hit in support of Salvador Aguilar's four innings of work.
