SS Wilmer Flores extended his hitting streak to 15 straight games with a 1-4 Saturday night with a double. He's 31-67 (.463) with five doubles and a homer in the streak. Oh, and he's just 18. Kid can hit.
Robert Carson (7-5, 4.17) was pretty good: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K, 1 HR. That's 12 strikeouts and two walks for Carson in his last 13 innings.
Michael Barrett DHed and was 2-4.
A: Savannah Sand Gnats, @ Asheville Tourists 3 (10 innings)
3B Jefry Marte's best game of the year sent the Gnats to their fourth straight win. Marte, who now owns a six-game hitting streak, homered twice, and tripled home the go-ahead run in the tenth. He's up to six homers in 72 games. Last year, he had six bombs in 123 games. Marte, hitting .247/.324/.389 for the year is up to .317/.364/.683 in July while playing much-improved defense. He's still just 19. Can he maintain his recent hot streak?
1B Travis Ozga, the Mets' 41st round pick in 2009, continues to hit well for Savannah. He was 2-4 with a walk Saturday and is up to .395/.449/.581 in 14 games.
