With all the recent promotions and injuries, the Bisons lineup is Kirk Nieuwenhuis and a collection of minor league veterans. The offense was limited to seven hits and one run, which came in the ninth inning. The Bisons have scored two runs over their last 18 innings.
Casey Fossum was not very good: 5 IP, 8 hits, 6 er, 2 k, HR. His ERA stands at 6.56.
The game was called after 4 1/2 innings were completed. The game was delayed 40 minutes due to wet weather before it started and 36 minutes before it was called.
Mark Cohoon had his worst start of the season. Cohoon pitched 3 2/3 innings, giving up eleven hits, eleven runs, six earned runs, while walking one and striking five. Of the eleven hits Cohoon allowed, seven went for extra bases (5 doubles & 2 HR). Opposing hitters are now hitting .273 against Cohoon.
Josh Satin once again paced the B-Mets offense, going 2-3 with two doubles and an RBI. Brahiam Maldonado (1-3, 2B, 2RBI) drove in two runs with a double in the top of the fifth.
Juan Lagares (3-4, 3B) stayed hot with three more hits. Over his last 10 games, Lagares is hitting .405/.410/.730 with three home runs and 12 RBI. He has walked six times this season (29 games), while in 2010 he walked nine times in 100 games.
Jeffrey Kaplan came on in the eighth and allowed the tying and winning runs to score. It was Kaplan's third blown save of the season. Scott Moviel took a no-decison, going 6 1/3 innings, giving up six hits, three runs, two earned, while walking three and striking out three.
Aderlin Rodriguez (2-4, 2 HR (8,9), 3RBI) and Rafael Fernandez (2-3, 2 HR (2,3), 4RBI) each homered twice, leading the Gnats to an 8-4 victory over Charleston. Robbie Shields (1-4, 2B) extended his hitting streak to eight games with a first inning double. Cory Vauhgn (0-2, 3 BB, SB), who leads the SAL with a .485 OBP, walked three times in five plate appearances.
Scheduled starter Erik Goeddel came on to relieve starter Chase Huchingson, who struck out eight over his five innings of work. Huchingson gave up five hits, and gave up three earned runs, while walking two.
Goeddel made his first relief appearance of the season, pitching three innings, giving up only two singles, walking none, and striking out five. Goeddel, who has not started regularly since his senior year in HS (2007), has logged 40 innings already this season, and the organization will almost certainly keep a close eye on his workload.
Josh Edgin came on to pitch a perfect ninth inning, and has quietly had a dominant year. Edgin has pitched 14 1/3 innings, giving up only 11 hits, three earned runs, walking eight, and striking out 17. He has held opponents to a .204 average.
