AAA - Las Vegas 51s (80-60)__________________________________


The 51s put six runs on the board in the first two innings and that turned out to be more than enough for Matt Fox, who struck out 10 and walked one over 6.2 innings to lead Vegas to a 10-7 win. The win guarantees Vegas will have at least a two game lead--depending on the outcome of the Sacramento game--with four games to play in the race for the playoffs. Dustin Lawley had a hand in the offense, launching his first home run since the promotion to go along with two doubles. Ruben Tejada also--shockingly--homered in the game, his first since being optioned. The 51s head back to Vegas and open a four game series to close the regular season against Tuscon on Friday.

AA - Binghamton Mets (84-54)_____________________________________


Erik Goeddel had his worst start of the season, allowing 12 hits and 10 runs in just under five innings, and the B-Mets' bats weren't up to the task as they lost 13-1 to split the series with Bowie. For Goeddel, the outing the raised his ERA from 3.83 to 4.37. He has 125 strikeout and 58 walks in 134 innings this season. He's also Rule 5 eligible this year for the first time. I'm not sure what the Mets will do but I'm thinking it might be time to try converting him to the pen.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (32-30 / 69-60)________________________________________

St. LUCIE 3, JUPITER 12 (Box)

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (30-33 / 71-64)__________________________________


  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 0-4, R, BB
  • RF Maikis De La Cruz: 1-4, R
  • 2B Dilson Herrera: 2-3, 2 R, RBI, SB; Quite the debut from the recent acquisition. If you haven't already, go check out Alex Nelson's scouting report of Dilson as well as Steve Sypa's introduction. Great job by Sandy to get a prospect with a future major leaguer projection for a couple of expiring assets.
  • DH Eudy Pina: 2-4, BB, K
  • LF Stefan Sabol: 0-4, 2 K
  • 3B Cole Frenzel: 1-4, R, HR (6), 2 RBI, K
  • SS Phil Evans: 1-4, K
  • RHP Gabriel Ynoa: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, K; Ynoa was named the 2013 Most Outstanding Pitcher for the South Atlantic League on Thursday. He has posted a 2.72 ERA over 135.2 innings while walking just 16 batters. His control has been amazing. If I were to nitpick anything it would be the strikeout percentage. But for a 20 year-old in A ball, you really couldn't ask for a much better season.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (37-32)


Quality pitching leads the way again for the 'Clones. With nine strikeouts in six innings Miller Diaz now has 82 in 62.2 innings. I know a bunch of you were there last night so I'll leave it to you: How did Diaz look? Any thoughts on anyone else?

Rk - Kingsport Mets (39-27)_____________________________


Rk - GCL Mets (20-40)_______________________________


Star of the Night

Who needs double-A? Apparently not Dustin Lawley, who had three extra-base hits on the night including his first home run since the promotion.

Goat of the Night

Erik Goeddel.
