St. Lucie Mets 11, @ Bradenton Maruaders 5

HittersThe FSL Mets pounded out 11 runs on 16 hits, which is nice.

- CF?Cesar Puello,?in his second game back from a dislocated finger was 4-for-4 with two stolen bases, numbers 16 and 17 on the year. ?After swiping 45 bags in the SAL last year, I'm a little surprised to see him shy of 20 at this point in the year. ?Still, the important thing is that Puello is hitting. ?After a .242/.297/.350 line in 64 games in the first half, the 20-year old is up to .280/.341/.467 in 45 games in the second half. ?It's the second year in a row in which he's had a big second half. ?For reference, the FSL has hit .262/.331/.385 as a league in 2011. ?Is that enough to earn him a shot at AA to start 2012, or will the Mets start him back in the Florida State League with an eye on a mid-season promotion to Binghamton? ?I suspect it'll be the later.
