AAA - Buffalo Bisons (46-45)_______________________________________
The Bisons had the night off
AA - Binghamton Mets (41-47)_____________________________________
ALTOONA 3, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)
The Mets got on the board early, and looked to have snuck out just enough for the win when they scored in the top of the 8th. A pair of walks got Adam Rosario in trouble to start the 9th before former Met farmhand Stefan Welch and Brock Holt singled home the tying and winning runs respectively.
- LF Juan Lagares: 1-5
- 3B Jefry Marte: 1-3, 2B, BB

LF Eric Campbell:2-5, K, R

- RHP Adrian Rosario: 0.1 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, 0 K, 2 BB
- RHP Brad Holt: 2 IP, K, BB
ST. LUCIE 4, BRADENTON 1 (Box)
The Mets used a boost from the rehabbing Zach Lutz to pull away from the Marauders in this one. They'd never trail on the night, and their second straight win over Bradenton puts them within a win of reaching .500 for the second half.
- CF Cesar Puello: 0-3, 2 K
- RF Cory Vaughn:2-3, 2 2B
- LF Alonzo Harris: 1-4, BB, K, 2 R, SB

Rehab Alert: 3B Zach Lutz was 1-5 with a 2B and 2 RBI
Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (6-12)__________________________________
Like the Bisons, the Gnats had Monday off
- CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-2, 2 BB, R - .379 OBP following his 18th and 19th BB's of the season
- SS Philip Evans: 1-4, 2 RBI
- DH Jayce Boyd: 0-4
- 1B Cole Frenzel: 0-4, 2 K
- 2B Juan Carlos Gamboa: 1-2, 2 BB, K, R

- RHP Hansel Robles: 5.1 IP, 3 H, ER, 7 K, BB
Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (14-8)__________________________________
JAMESTOWN 5, BROOKLYN 2 (Box)
Hansel Robles was great for Brooklyn, but the bullpen couldn't follow suit. The big bats in the middle of the lineup were quiet last night as well.
Appalachian League (R) - Kingsport Mets (4-16)__________________________________
PULASKI 7, KINGSPORT 6 (Box)
Steven Matz pitched very well for Kingsport as they built up a 6-0 lead last night. Unfortunately for the Mets, Corey Oswalt managed to give them 7 back in his outing, and the Mets would eventually drop this on 7-6.
- SS Gavin Cecchini: 0-3, 2 BB
- RF Maikis De La Cruz: 4-4, HR, 2 RBI, R
- C Jeyckol De Leon: 2-5, HR, K, RBI, R
- CF Eris Peguero: 2-5, HR, K, RBI, R
- LHP Steven Matz: 6 IP, H, 0 ER, 6 K, 2 BB
- RHP Corey Oswalt: 0.1 IP, 5 H, 7 ER, 0 K, BB
★ Star of the Night ★
We had some excellent nights to choose from, but Maikis De La Cruz really was deserving last night. Honorable mentions go out to Steven Matz and Hansel Robles for great starts in their respective outings.
Goat of the Night
Cory Oswalt takes this one in spectacular fashion. He allowed 5 hits, 1 walk, and hit a batter while recording just a single out. All 7 of those baserunners would eventually score, making up the entire Pulaski output for the evening.
