Upper Levels Sunday: B-Mets Hit Enough for Everyone. Matt den Dekker Extends Hitting Streak

AAA: Indianapolis Indians (PIT) 4, @ Buffalo Bisons 1 

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.


AA: Binghamton Mets 11, @ Portland Sea Dogs (BOS) 7

Portland could not stop the B-Mets offense Sunday. Binghamton scored in eight of the nine innings, rapped out 12 hits and drew seven walks.

The three hitters, all of whom are good prospects, 3B Jefry Marte, CF Matt den Dekker and RF Juan Lagares, who have been carrying the Binghamton attack, had good days.

– 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.
