Ok, so the key play or plays in this one occurred in a 1-1 game in the bottom of the eighth. So, with runners at first and second, lets turn it over to the B-Mets game recap:
"Aeros second baseman Ryan Rohlinger sent a chopper to Jefry Marte at third. The ball took an awkward hop, bounced past Marte and rolled into left field, allowing Chun Chen to score from second.Hmm. What else happened Monday?
Left fielder Pedro Zapata missed the cutoff man with his throw to home, enticing pinch-runner Ben Copeland to try for third. Centeno's throw to the bag was on time, but Marte muffed it, allowing the ball to roll into left again. Copeland scampered home, giving Akron a two-run lead."
Darin Gorski (pictured): 6 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K. It does not seem like he had his good command, although he held the Aeros in check as he threw 60% of his pitches (55 of 92) for strikes.
2B Reese Havens was 0-for-2 with two walks and two strikeouts in his second game in 2012.
RF Juan Lagares was 2-for-3 with a walk to finish April at .256/.348/.359 with five extra-base hits, 11 walks and 14 strikeouts in 22 games. Lagares, even while hitting a total of .349/.383/.500 between advanced-A and and double-A began slowly a year ago when he hit .262/.314/.369 in 18 games with four extra-base hits and five walks and seven strikeouts. And Lagares' 11 walks in April 2012, were not just more than in any single month in 2011, but set a new career-high.
CF Matt den Dekker was 1-for-4 with a strikeout, his 25 in 23 games in April. More strangely, he was caught stealing and is now just 2-for-7 stealing bases in 2012.
The Bisons and Red Wings were rained out they'll make it up on the Red Wings' next visit to Buffalo, August 25-28.
Wait? Rochester does not visit Buffalo again, a whopping 80 minutes away from each other, until the end of August? Stay hot, minor league schedule makers.
