Upper Minors Tuesday: Mike Baxter Plays the Field in AAA

AAA: @ Louisville Bats (CIN) 4, Buffalo Bisons 1 

Some good notes:

– LF Mike Baxter was 2-for-3 with an RBI in his first start in the outfield for the Bisons in his second game on his AAA rehab stop.
Jenrry Mejia did not give up a run, but did not strike anyone out in his 1.1 innings of relief.

More of the same:
CF Matt den Dekker was 0-for-3 with two more strikeouts. He’s whiffed 53 times in 38 games as part of a .211/.240/.435 line in 38 games for the Bisons.

No Lucas Duda, yet.


AA: Binghamton Mets 4, @ New Britain Rock Cats (MIN) 3 

Mark Cohoon: 7.1 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K. He allowed only one hit in the first six innings.

On the infield, Jefry Marte played third, Reese Havens took second and Wilmer Flores handled first. None of the three had a hit. That’s now 13 games at third, six at second and four at first for Flores (.295/.336/.464 – 29 games).

LF Eric Campbell (2-for-3, HR, RBI, BB) provided the eventual decisive run in the top of the eighth. SS Wilfredo Tovar (.261/.314/.348) doubled home three.
