Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (56-42)_______________________________________


Double-A - Binghamton Mets (57-38)_____________________________________


The B-Mets will at least earn a split of their series with the SeaWolves thanks mainly to Dilson Herrera, who hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the 7th inning to give Binghamton the edge. Hansel Robles was shaky, and looked like he might combust at any moment, but the Dominican right-hander held fast, turning in a solid enough start that only saw Erie plate three runs over five innings. While he was fairly hittable, giving up eight hits, Robes was pounding the zone all night, throwing 60 of his 87 pitches for strikes, and kept everything in the infield, inducing a solid seven groundballs to zero flyball outs.

In the end, while Binghamton won the game, Erie might've won the war: their two pitchers used in yesterday's game were named Warwick Saupold and Guido Knudson, Add to the mix pitchers Kyle Ryan and Will Startup, and infielder Dean Green, and I don't see other team in the Eastern Division can even compete, with names like that.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (13-7 / 53-36)_____________________________________


Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (16-8 / 60-30)__________________________________


The Gnats finished their most recent homestand 4-2 thanks to a shutout last night at the hands of the RiverDogs. They did most of their damage early, knocking John Gant out of the ballgame early, thanks to a stressful 37-pitch 2nd inning. Charleston, on the other hand, hand no problem limiting the Sand Gnats to only four hits on the night, all singles. Savannah has the day off today, so they'll look to regroup before starting a three game set with Asheville on Tuesday.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-15)__________________________________


The Cyclones started the season en fuego, but late June and early July haven't been kind to the boys in Brooklyn, and as a result, here we are, sitting at .500 for the year after yesterday's loss to Connecticut. This just wasn't a good game for the Cyclones. Corey Oswalt got beaten around, while Tigers starter Fernando Perez had no problems with the Brooklyn lineup. Four Connecticut hitters had multi-hit games, while four Brooklyn hitters had hits, period. They'll look to avoid the sweep and stay above .500 for the season in the series finale tonight.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (10-14)__________________________________


Wins and losses don't matter so much in the lower levels of the minors as much as things player development and the like. Kingsport demonstrated that a lot of guys need to work on their FUNDIES! Kingsport committed a total of five error during the ballgame: Pedro Perez booted a ball in the 2nd, reliever Ramon Estevez threw away the ball during a pick off attempted in the 5th, catcher Luis Ortega committed a throwing error a few batters later trying to pick off a runner of his own, Jean Rodriguez committed a throwing error in the 6th, and Eudor Garcia committed a fielding error in the 8th.

Rookie - GCL Mets (9-9)__________________________________
