Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (57-43)______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 7, SALT LAKE 6 (Box)

Cory Mazzoni tossed five-plus innings in his Triple-A debut and his new teammates backed him up with three home runs. Wilmer Flores didn't go yard, but he did pick up a pair of singles, including one of the bunt variety, to run his hitting streak to 19 games. He's currently batting .361/.388/.803 in July and exactly half of his hits this month have gone for more than one base.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (59-39)______________________________________

TRENTON 6, BINGHAMTON 5 (Box)

Outside of Brandon Nimmo and Dilson Herrera, the B-Mets offense was nonexistent last night. The dynamic duo went a combined four-for-eight with five runs batted in while the rest of the team went 1-for-25. Herrera, the youngest hitter in the Eastern League, now has 100 Double-A at-bats under his belt and his line sits at .350/.410/.524.

  • LF Brandon Nimmo: 1-4, 2 R, 2 RBI, BB
  • 2B Dilson Herrera: 3-4, 2B, 3 RBI, SB

High-A - St. Lucie Mets (16-9 / 56-38)______________________________________

BREVARD COUNTY 4, ST. LUCIE 3 (Box)

St. Lucie scored three times in the top of the eighth inning to tie the game, but ultimately fell when reliever T.J. Chism served up a walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth. Gavin Cecchini was pulled in the third inning, a move perhaps related to his not running out a dropped third strike the frame before.

  • CF Gilbert Gomez: 1-5, 2B, 2 K
  • 2B L.J. Mazzilli: 0-5
  • Rehab Alert DH Taylor Teagarden: 2-4, R, 2 K

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (18-10 / 62-32)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 5, LEXINGTON 1 (Box)

Robert Gsellman turned 21 yesterday and his of-age teammates should buy him a beer or two for the birthday performance he turned in. The 13th rounder fanned ten in six-plus innings, his first double-digit strikeout game since August of last year. Dom Smith went hitless in four at-bats and got himself tossed by the home plate umpire in the seventh, presumably for arguing balls and strikes.

  • SS Yeixon Ruiz: 2-4, RBI
  • CF Champ Stuart: 2-5, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • DH Dominic Smith: 0-4, 2 K
  • PH-DH Cole Frenzel: 0-0, BB

  • LF Patrick Biondi: 1-1, R, RBI, 2 BB, CS
  • RHP Robert Gsellman: 6.2 IP, 6 H, ER, BB, 10 K

Short Season-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-19)__________________________________

JAMESTOWN 12, BROOKLYN 7 (Box) / 15 innings

Brooklyn got jammed by Jamestown yesterday despite scoring seven runs, one off the team's seasonal high. Generating offense has been an issue for the Cyclones of late, but they'll get some help in that department starting today, as Michael Conforto is scheduled to make his professional debut.

  • C Adrian Abreu: 3-7, 2 R, 2B, RBI
  • SS Amed Rosario: 1-7, R, 2 RBI, K
  • 3B Jhoan Urena: 1-7, R, 2B, 2 K

  • LF-RF Jeff Diehl: 2-6, R
  • 2B William Fulmer: 2-6, 2 R, 2B, HR, RBI, K
  • LHP Carlos Valdez: 4.1 IP, 2 H, 3 ER, 4 BB, 5 K
  • RHP Gaither Bumgardner: 4.1 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, BB, 4 K
  • RHP Josh Provost: 2.1 IP

Rookie - Gulf Coast Mets (13-11)______________________________________

GCL CARDINALS 1, GCL METS 0 (Box)

The GCL Mets put nine batters on base in this game and nearly half of them ran themselves into outs. Cardinals catcher Frankie Rodriguez snuffed out four attempted steals of second, including tries by left fielder Enmanuel Zabala.

  • RF John Mora: 1-4
  • LF Enmanuel Zabala: 1-4, CS (2)
  • 2B Dale Burdick: 0-3, BB, CS
  • 1B Dash Winningham: 1-3, K

  • SS Milton Ramos: 0-2, BB, K, CS
  • CF Raphael Ramirez: 1-3, 2 K
  • LHP Adrian Almeida: 5.2 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K

Dominican Summer League score are here: Mets1 and Mets2

Star of the Night
On another evening, GCL Mets designated hitter Hengelbert Rojas might earn the honors based on name alone, but Robert Gsellman edges out Dilson Herrera for the star on account of it being a belated birthday gift.

T.J. Chism
