Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains. It's a simple game like that. Also, Happy belated Thor's Day!

AAA - Las Vegas 51s (2-0)___________________________________________
LAS VEGAS 11, FRESNO 8 (Box)
The man Mets fans call Thor dropped his hammer on the Grizzlies, needing just 76 pitches (51 strikes) to throw six frames of two-run ball in his first Triple-A start. Noah Syndergaard probably could have forged deeper into the game, but with the bases loaded in the sixth, manager Wally Backman lifted him in favor of pinch hitter Bobby Abreu. The veteran doubled to clear the bags and that proved timely, as relievers Jeff Walters and Ryan Reid conspired to make the final score a lot closer than it should have been.

POSTPONED DUE TO WEATHER
While the big league club managed to squeeze in a game between the raindrops last night, the B-Mets weren't as lucky. Binghamton will play two against the Akron RubberDucks later today. The aptly named Rainy Lara is scheduled to start the day's first game, while Tyler Pill takes the mound in the nightcap.
Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (1-1)____________________________________________
PALM BEACH 6, ST. LUCIE 2 (Box)
Brandon Nimmo picked up his second double in as many nights and Dilson Herrera drove home a pair, but it wasn't enough to get a good, but not great Steven Matz off the hook. On the plus side, the lefty did strike out five in five innings against just one walk.

Lo-A Savannah Sand Gnats (1-1)________________________________________
SAVANNAH 10, LAKEWOOD 1 (Box)
Native Savannahian John Gant turned in a Gant-tasticTM start for his hometown Sand Gnats last night, striking out seven and keeping all but a half-dozen BlueClaws off the base paths over the course of six quality innings. Jared King and Gavin Cecchini helped the local boy make good with big days at the plate. The former rapped out two triples and drove in four, while the latter topped his home run total from last year with a single swing in the bottom of the seventh.

Star of the Night
Jared King wears the starry crown for his two triple, four rib-eye night. Come unto his courts, royal jesters, so that you may make merriments and sing hosannahs in his name.
Goat of the Night
One horn a piece for relievers Jeff Walters an Juan Hilario for posting pitching lines with more runs than outs recorded. Oof.
