Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (43-31)_______________________________________


  • OF Cesar Puello: didn't play
  • RF Cory Vaughn: 2-4, RBI
  • 3B Josh Satin: 1-4, 2 R, BB
  • LF Andrew Brown: 2-5, 2 RBI, 2 K
  • 1B Brandon Allen: 1-2, 2 BB
  • SS Omar Quintanilla: 1-4, 2 K
  • 2B Daniel Muno: 0-3, BB
  • C Travis d'Arnaud: 3-5, 3 R, 2 2B, HR, 3 RBI, K; You guys know we don't like to get too excited about small samples around here but this is my exception to that rule. He's hitting .432/.479/.977 in AAA. He's hit six (!) homers since he's been sent down. They mentioned that he needed to get his confidence and swing back as reasons for his being sent down. I, uh, think he has done that.
  • LHP Darin Gorski: 6.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, ER, 2 BB, 11 K; Look at Gorski mowing down the competition in Vegas. Very impressive.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (41-31)_____________________________________


  • RF Kyle Johnson: 1-5, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • 3B Brian Burgamy: 1-3, BB, 2 K
  • SS TJ Rivera: 1-3, R, BB, K
  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 0-2, R, 2 BB; Nice to see he didn't leave the patience and strikezone discipline in St. Lucie. Exciting times for the 2011 first round pick. A big second half in double-A would create huge expectations for Nimmo in 2015.
  • C Kevin Plawecki: 0-4, K; With d'Arnaud crushing Vegas the way he is, I expect Plawecki's time with Binghmaton is short.
  • LF Dustin Lawley: 2-4, R, 2B, RBI, K
  • 2B Dilson Herrera: 2-4, R, K; Flying under the radar a bit because of Nimmo's huge season thus far, Dilson is establishing himself as a big-time prospect. He's hit his way to double-A as a 20 year-old and is now one of the youngest players in the Eastern League.
  • RHP Tyler Pill:  8 IP, 4 H. 0 R. 0 ER. 0 BB. 9 K; also, 3-3, 2 R, 2B, HR, 4 RBI <--DANG

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (41-29)________________________________________


Decent start for the trio of Sand Gnats who were promoted, with Cecchini knocking a double and Mazzilli homering. Gabriel Ynoa pitched well peripherally but did give up four runs on seven hits. Still, though, since May 5th he has four walks and 45 strikeouts in 50.1 innings. That is good and if he keeps it up I would expect a promotion after a few more starts.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (45-22)__________________________________


  • RF Patrick Biondi: 0-1, R, SB 2
  • SS Yeixon Ruiz: 1-5, K, SB; Looks like he got transferred down to make space for Cechinni and Mazzilli.
  • 1B Dominic Smith: 1-3, R, 2B, BB; Nice to see Dom smack a double. The bat to ball and strike zone discipline seems to be there, let's hope he adds some pop in the second half.
  • LF Stefan Sabol: 1-4, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • CF Champ Stuart: 0-4, BB, 3 K; I'm glad Champ is in Savannah because this roster lost a lot of its juice with the promotions.
  • RHP Robert Gsellman: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, BB, 5 K

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (5-2)__________________________________


Rk - Kingsport Mets (0-1)__________________________________


Star of the Night

You can't have a better night than Tyler Pill did, striking out nine in eight shutout innings and going 3-3 with a homer. The only question I have is, can he play shortstop? Honorable mention to Travis d'Arnaud who does not appear to be challenged by AAA pitching.

Goat of the Night
