The roundup for May 23rd minor league games: Bisons escape thunderstorm with win; the B-Mets game was postponed again; St. Lucie Mets lost Daytona Cubs; and four Savannah pitchers combine on two-hit shutout.

Buffalo Bisons
The Bisons topped the Charlotte Knights in a rain-shortened 6-2 affair Monday night at Coca Cola Field. With the bases loaded and two outs in the second inning, Valentino Pascucci rocked a two-out, three-run double to right-center field, missing a grand slam by about a foot.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader at New Britain Stadium Wednesday, May 25 beginning at 5:00 PM. The two games are slated for seven innings each.

The B-Mets have now been rained out seven times in 2011, which eclipses the six games which were washed out during the 2010 season.

Savannah Sand Gnats
Four Savannah pitchers combined on a two-hit shutout Monday night to push the Gnats past the Greenville Drive 1-0 at Historic Grayson Stadium in front of a crowd of 3,033. The first place Gnats (22-22) took three of four games from the Drive (21-24).

Savannah starter Chase Huchingson held the Drive in check for the first five innings, striking out seven. Erik Goeddel relieved Huchingson in the sixth, and fired three hitless innings with three strikeouts. The Gnats turned to Gabriel Zavala to begin the ninth, and lefty Hamilton Bennett picked up the final two outs for his first save of the year.
