Tobi Stoner:Win, 7 IP, ER, 8 H, 5 K

Stoner had his best outing of the season on Thursday night. It was his longest outing of the season and his longest outing without issuing a walk. He earned his second straight victory. Stoner has allowed just two earned runs over his last 13 innings pitched with 13 strikeouts. The right-hander is now 2-4 with a 5.00 ERA in 36.0 innings (seven starts).

Mike Hessman: 10-for-26, 3 HR, 8 RBI, 7 R, 3 2B, 5 BB

Hessman was the big thumper for the Bisons last week and continues to be the relied upon run producer for the season. Hessman rides a 12-game hit streak entering Sunday and his 13 RBI over the last ten games pushed his International League-leading RBI total to 41. Hessman also leads the IL in home runs (12) and slugging percentage (.687).

Ruben Tejada: 10-for-26, RBI, 3 R, 2B, 2 BB

Tejada raised his season average to .295 after another strong week and 12 hits in his last 30 at-bats. The overall production was slim for the Bisons' shortstop who has just five extra base hits this season and 13 runs scored in 33 games. Tejada went 4-for-4 on Monday with four singles and one run scored.

Jesus Feliciano: 10-for-25, 2 RBI, 5 R, 2 BB, 2 SB

Feliciano continues to hit his way on base. His last week included two 3-hit games and another 2-hit game. He is hitting .356 (36-for-101) for the season, which leads the International League, with only ten strikeouts in 101 at-bats.

BINGHAMTON METS

Dylan Owen: 2 starts, 1-0, 12 IP, ER, 4 H, 12 K, BB

Owen had the two best starts of the season. He picked his victory against New Hampshire last Sunday with six innings of one-run ball with four strikeouts and three hits and one walk allowed. Owen was even better on Friday night when he tossed six shutout innings with only one hit allowed and a season-high eight strikeouts. On the season, Owen is 2-1 with a 2.82 ERA in seven games (six starts) and a .169 opponent's batting average.

Eddie Kunz: ND, 5 IP, ER, 2 R, 5 H, 3 K, 2 BB

Kunz had another steady start in which he wasn't overpowering but was not exactly hit hard. He has yet to yield a home run in his last 28 1/3 innings and still has allowed fewer hits (31) than innings pitched (33.1). However the 21 K/21 BB ratio is a ratio running him into trouble.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 7-for-31, 2 RBI, 2 R, 2 2B, BB

Nieuwenhuis started the week strong before taking an 0-for-9 over his last two games. The centerfielder is 13-for-46 over his last ten games with only one walk against 14 strikeouts.

5/15 v. Jupiter 5-4


Josh Satin: 12-for-22, 2 HR, 8 RBI, 6 R, 2 2B, 2 BB

Satin is one of the hottest hitters across the Florida State League after going 18-for-37 in his last ten games, raising his season average to .342 which is good for seventh in the league. Satin had five straight multi-hit games at one point over the last ten days. His best night came on Monday when he went 3-for-3 with two home runs, four RBI and three runs scored. His .434 on-base percentage ranks fifth in the league.

Eric Campbell: 9-for-24, HR, 4 RBI, 6 R, 2 2B, BB

Campbell rides an 8-game hitting streak entering Sunday, continuing a scorching month of May in which Campbell is hitting .446 in 14 games (25-for-56). Entering Sunday, Campbell's 30 runs scored leads the FSL and his .347 average ranks sixth. Campbell is hitting .385 (10-for-26) with runners in scoring position this season and .412 off left-handed pitching (14-for-34).

Chris Schwinden: ND, 6 IP, ER, 5 H, 3 K

Schwinden put together another very strong start on Tuesday against Brevard County. Schwinden went another six innings without issuing a walk and has now walked just one batter in his last 21 innings. On the season, Schwinden has surrendered 25 hits in 28 2/3 innings this season with only five walks allowed.

Kyle Allen: ND, 6 IP, ER, 5 H, 4 K, 3 BB

Allen did a good job working around three walks and five hits in a second straight solid outing. The walk total is still a point of contention, but Allen has given up only eight hits in his last 12 1/3 innings. Allen did enjoy a heavy dose of groundballs, inducing over five ground balls for every fly out in Friday's start.

SAVANNAH SAND GNATS

5/12 v. Rome 3-2

5/15 v. Rome 3-0


Wilmer Flores: 13-for-26, 5 RBI, R, 2 2B, 3 BB, 2 SB

Flories did a little bit over everything over the last week, including raising his South Atlantic League-best batting average to .359. He is also tied for the league lead in hits (52) and leads the Sally in OPS (.994). Flores is hitting .432 (19-for-44) in his last ten games and .389 (21-for-54) in May after hitting .341 in April. He is hitting .380 (19-for-50) with runners in scoring position.

Juan Lagares: 15-for-28, 9 RBI, 4 R, 2 2B, 3B, BB, 2 SB

Lagares had a very hot week that began with a 5-for-7 night with four RBI. Lagares is hitting .404 (19-for-47) over his last ten games .350 (21-for-60) in May. In 36 games this season, Lagares has four home runs, eight doubles and a Sally League-leading eight triples. His 84 total bases ties him for second in the league behind Flores who has 85.

Mark Cohoon: ND, 7 IP, 2 ER, 6 H, 9 K

Cohoon earned a no-decision in his last outing, but remains undefeated after tallying a season-high nine strikeouts. Cohoon has now struck out 16 and walked just one over his last 16 innings pitched. His 1.76 ERA is the best on the Sand Gnats (trailed by James Fuller at 1.81) and ranks fifth in the Sally League.
