Charlotte RF Greg Golson doubled off LHP Josh Edgin to begin the 10th and then scored later in the inning on a single off RHP Jack Egbert. That's now 14 hits and six walks off Edgin in 8.1 appearances in AAA.
With Jenrry Mejia and Chris Young on the mend and headed in the direction of Buffalo, Garrett Olson made a fairly compelling case to keep his rotation spot: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 10 K. In 37.2 IP, he's fanned 38 batters his year. Also, lefthanders do not have a single extra-base hit against him in 30 AB for a .200/.286/.200 line.
The B-Mets ripped three home runs to give Gonzalez Germen plenty of support in this one.
CF Matt den Dekker (pictured) extended his hitting streak to seven straight games by going 2-for-4 with a homer, his fourth. The 24 year old is hitting .292/.358/.508 with 34 strikeouts and 17 extra-base hits in 32 games.
1B Eric Campbell was 3-for-4 with a double and a homerun. The 25-year old is up to .308/.415/.500 in 23 games. Campbell can play third and left a little. He got off to a brutal start in 2011 hitting .210/.334/.272 in the first half before cranking things up to .311/.364/.466 in the second half. Time might have passed him by as he's been at double-A since the middle of the 2010 season.
Since homering in a 3-for-4 effort in his 2012 debut, 2B Reese Havens is in a 4-for-34 skid (.118/.231/.176) including an 0-for-4 Friday.
Germen was effective but without attractive peripherals: 7 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 WP.
It's interesting that Germen has remained with the B-Mets even after Zack Wheeler's return. The team is carrying six starters: Wheeler, Germen, Collin McHugh, Darin Gorski, Greg Peavey and Mark Cohoon with little room ahead in AAA. The good news is that "problems" of too much talent usually sort themselves out fairly quickly.
The FisherCats starter Deck McGuire faced the B-Mets for the third time in his last five starts and each start has been progressively worse. He shutout Binghamton through 6.2 innings on April 18. Since, the B-Mets got to him for seven runs in three innings on April 25 and five runs in .1 (!) of an innings Friday.
