AAA - Las Vegas 51's (60-53)______________________________________
MEMPHIS 4, LAS VEGAS 3 (Box)
Vegas continues to struggle on their Tennessee road trip. Yesterday's loss to the Redbirds make it six straight losses in the Volunteer state. Matt Fox turned in a quality start on the bump, but a three-run fourth staked Memphis to an early lead. The 51s clawed their way back even in the top of the eighth on a Zach Lutz RBI groundout, but Memphis struck right back in the bottom of the eighth off reliver Sean Henn. Vegas got the tying run 180 feet away in the ninth, but Fernando Salas set down Francisco Pena and Kirk Nieuwenhuis to preserve the Redbird win.
AA - Binghamton Mets (69-43)_____________________________________
BINGHAMTON 3, HARRISBURG 2 (Box)
The B-Mets staff acquitted themselves well, as Logan Verrett and a trio of relievers conspired to hold the Senators to just two runs, but this was the Travis d'Arnaud show. The Mets catching prospect doubled and homered in his four at-bats, and made us all very, very happy about the Buck's impending child, maybe more than the Bucks. Jeff Walters added to his record save total, notching his thirty-second of the year.
Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (23-16 // 60-46)_______________________
ST. LUCIE 11, CLEARWATER 3 (Box)
Michael Fulmer was shaky on the mound, but it didn't really matter as the Mets bats pounded out eleven innings across his six innings of work. Jayce Boyd and Cam Maron both threw three rib-eye steaks on the grill, and Kevin Plawecki and T.J. Rivera added multi-hit games to the ledger. With the win, St. Lucie kept pace with the Charlotte Stone Crabs for the division lead.
Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (21-17 // 64-43)_____________
SAVANNAH 6, GREENVILLE 3 (Box)
The Gnats wrapped up a 5-2 week with a come from behind win against the Drive. Jeff Glenn broke a 3-3 tie in the top of the ninth with a three-run bomb, and Beck Wheeler closed the door in the bottom half, as Savannah continues to be surprisingly watchable in the second half.
SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (23-22)_______________________________
BROOKLYN 7, JAMESTOWN 4 (Box)
Always dangerous to leave the Cyclones for dead. Despite a horrible start to the season and a rather uninspiring roster for prospect watchers, Brooklyn finds themselves just a game out of the division lead after their win over the Jammers last night. John Gant continues to handle the Penn League with aplomb, and he got some run support from a usually anemic Cyclones offense. Gavin Cecchini led the way with four hits, including a double, and Eddie Rohan chipped in with a two-run homer.
R - Kingsport Mets (25-17)_______________________________
JOHNSON CITY 5, KINGSPORT 3 (Box)
Yeah, Rob Whalen is probably too good for this league.
R - GCL Mets (11-27)_______________________________
GCL NATS 9, GCL METS 5 (5)(Box)
Star of the Night
Travis d'Arnaud gets the nod for powering the Binghamton offense to another win.
Goat of the Night
A hat trick and an error in the field? Sorry Brandon Nimmo, rules are rules.
