The roundup for June 8th minor league games: The Herd loses, 1-0 despite a great start by Carrasco; Stoner & bullpen lead B-Mets in 4-1 win; Harvey leads St. Lucie to 4-2 win; and Gnats had an off day.
The Bisons got another great start from D.J. Carrasco but failed to score a run on Wednesday night at Coca-Cola Field losing to Indianapolis, 1-0.
The Bisons gave up the only run in the game during the eighth inning, the run was unearned. After Miles Durham leadoff the inning with a double into the right-center-field gap, Chase d’Arnaud laid down a sacrifice bunt that moved Durham to third. Due to a throwing error on Michael Fisher, d’Arnaud reached first safely.
Tobi Stoner tossed six strong innings and the Binghamton bullpen preserved the lead in a 4-1 B-Mets victory over the Harrisburg Senators tonight at NYSEG Stadium.
Stoner worked out the kinks in his third appearance with Binghamton this year. After two rocky starts, the right-hander put forth his best performance of 2011, allowing just one run on four hits and striking out a season-best four.
St. Lucie Mets
Matt Harvey displayed All-Star form, baffling the Charlotte Stone Crabs in the St. Lucie Mets’ 4-2 victory at Charlotte Sports Park on Wednesday.
Harvey (7-2) was dominant, tossing six innings while striking out nine Charlotte batters. The Mets prospect fell just one shy of tying his career-high of 10, while moving into third place in the Florida State League with 80 punch-outs on the season.
