On a bullpen day for both teams, former Marlin Rick VandenHurk and two Indians held the Bisons to just two singles all day.
2B Jordany Valdespin, who hit a pinch-hit home run in his return to AAA Saturday had a rough Sunday: 0-for-3 with two errors.
– den Dekker (pictured) was 3-for-5 to extend his hitting streak to 15 straight games. He’s hitting .353 (23 H/63 AB) over his streak with 10 extra-base hits. Overall, the 24-year old is up to .309/.369/.527 in 40 games.
– Marte was 1-3 with the B-Mets’ only home run in the game. After going the first 29 games of the season with a homerun, the 20-year old Marte now has three jacks in his last seven games and is up to .326/.396/.462 overall in 36 games.
– Lagares was 3-for-5 with a double, his eighth of the year. In the midst of a .344/.373/.453 line in 16 games in May, the 23-year old is up to .296/.359/.401 overall in 38 games; it’s the closest he’s been to a .300 batting average all year.
2B Reese Havens was 1-for-5. After going hitless for six straight games, he had a single hit in both Saturday and Sunday’s games and is sitting at .148/.268/.246 in 18 games in AA this year.
Greg Peavey was hittable, but hung around long enough to get the win: 5 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 HR, 3 BB, 2 K. He’s allowed 51 hits and has just 26 strikeouts against 10 walks in 39.2 IP this year.
