*All results from games played on Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

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


  • DH Allan Dykstra: 0-3, K; Dykstra represented the 51s in the AAA All-Star Game. Struck out in the 2nd, grounded out in the 5th and 6th

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (58-38)_____________________________________


  • CF Kyle Johnson: 2-2, SB; Started at center field in the AA All-Star Game, drove two singles into the outfield and stole third in the 5th

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (15-7 / 55-36)_____________________________________


Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (16-10 / 60-32)__________________________________


The Sand Gnats dropped their fourth game in a row, dropping a second game to the first place Tourists. Savannah newcomer Logan Taylor was actually pretty good last night, but because the offense was nowhere to be found, he'll get credited with a loss. Antonio Senzatela, the Asheville starter, had his way with the Sand Gnat lineup, shutting them out for seven innings, scattering four hits. The offense finally snapped out of their funk in the 9th inning, leaving themselves very little wiggle room if they wanted to come back from a 6-0 deficit. They plated three runs on three hits and a few Asheville miscues, but ultimately ran out of outs when pinch hitter Nelfi Zapata flied out to left with the bases juiced.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-17)__________________________________


I spent about five minutes trying to come up with a good pun regarding the fact that Cyclones starter Brandon Welch would be pitching against the Jamestown Jammers, but I couldn't come up with anything- much like the Cyclones themselves. They took an early lead thanks to a Michael Bernal sac fly in the bottom of the 2nd, but they quickly found themselves trailing, as the Jammers put up a four spot in the top of the 3rd. Brooklyn scored one more run on a pair of doubles by Anthony Chavez and Jhoan Urena, but starter Frank Duncan and three relievers behind him combined to keep the Cyclones off the board for the rest of the game, allowing just two combined baserunners, a Tomas Nido single in the 4th and a Chavez walk in the 7th.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (10-15)__________________________________


The Royals scored two runs in the top of the 1st, forcing Kingsport to play catch up all night. They did almost catch up, though. Luis Guillorme drove in Branden Kaupe in the 5th to make it a 2-1 ballgame. After two more runs scored in the 6th, Kingsport plated another run thanks to a Kaupe sac fly, making it 4-2. They scored one more run, a Wuilmer Becerra RBI single- his fifth hit of the night- and got the tying run into scoring position at second, but pinch hitter Eudor Garcia was unable to get the run home.

Rookie - GCL Mets (12-10)__________________________________


Given his future, we might have to take these things while we can: the Mets beat up on Tyler Kolek, tagging him for four runs (three earned) in three innings. Sure, it's the GCL Mets, and Kolek only has a handful of professional games to his credit, but details, schmetails.

Star of the Night

With a five hit night, how can I not give it to Wuilmer Becerra? Logan Taylor gets some serious honorable mentions, though.

Goat of the Night

Going to go with the entire Sand Gnat offense, for allowing Antonio Senzatela to manhandle them, and then teasing us with a comeback bid in the 9th.
