Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (60-48)______________________________________


Rafael Montero made his second start post-oblique strain for Las Vegas last night and pitched better than his final line would indicate. The righty struggled out of the gate, allowing a line drive homer to Brennan Boesch in the first and a couple of hard hit balls in the second, but settled down from there. The highlight of Montero's evening came in the fourth when he struck out the side with all three victims going down swinging.

Offensively, Las Vegas came to life after Montero's departure from the game, as the heart of the order combined to go deep four times from the fifth inning on. The biggest blow was struck by the recently demoted Kirk Nieuwenhuis: a go-ahead three-run bomb in the bottom of the seventh. The Captain also singled twice and scored a pair of runs and remains the third-best outfield option on the 40-man roster at the moment.

  • CF Matt den Dekker: 0-5, K
  • SS Matt Reynolds: 0-5, K
  • DH Allan Dykstra: 4-4, 3 R, HR, RBI
  • RF Andrew Brown: 2-3, 2 R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB
  • LF Kirk Nieuwenhuis: 3-5, 2 R, HR, 3 RBI, K
  • 3B Josh Satin: 2-5, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI
  • 1B Brandon Allen: 1-3, 2 R, BB
  • C Taylor Teagarden: 2-4, 2 RBI
  • 2B Daniel Muno: 0-2, RBI, BB
  • RHP Rafael Montero: 5 IP, 6 H, 5 ER, BB, 6 K, HR
  • RHP Gonzalez Germen: 1 IP, 2 H

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (62-43)______________________________________


The B-Mets scored six times despite the inability of Brandon Nimmo and Dilson Herrera to set the table for the rest of the offense. The pair combined to go one-for-nine with Nimmo knocking the lone safety. With the oh-fer, Herrera's most recent hit streak came to an end at a dozen games. The lower half of the lineup, particularly Jayce Boyd and Darrell Ceciliani, brought the lumber in support of Greg Peavey. Not that he needed much help at all. The righty held Trenton to just six base runners and needed exactly 100 pitches to hurl eight innings of one-run ball.

  • LF Brandon Nimmo: 1-4, R, BB, K, SB
  • 2B Dilson Herrera: 0-5, 3 K
  • 1B Brian Burgamy: 2-5, R, 2B, 2 K
  • 3B Dustin Lawley: 1-5, R, 3 K
  • SS T. J. Rivera: 2-4, R, RBI
  • DH Jayce Boyd: 1-3, R, HR, RBI, BB, K
  • RF Travis Taijeron: 0-4, K
  • CF Darrell Ceciliani: 2-3, R, 2 RBI, 2 SB
  • C Xorge Carrillo: 0-3, K, HBP
  • RHP Greg Peavey: 8 IP, 5 H, ER, BB, 7 K
  • RHP Jon Velasquez: 1 IP, H, BB, 3 K

High-A - St. Lucie Mets (17-13 / 57-42)______________________________________

Postponed due to rain for the second day in a row.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (21-12 / 65-34)__________________________________


Savannah batters managed just five hits, four singles and a Neifi Zapata triple, against three Augusta pitchers. As far as highlights go, Champ Stuart showed off his non-hit tools, stealing his 15th base of the season and gunning down GreenJackets center fielder Chris Lofton (no relation to Kenny) as he tried to go first to third on a single.

  • SS Yeixon Ruiz: 1-4, 2 K, R
  • CF Champ Stuart: 0-4, 2 K, SB
  • DH Dominic Smith: 1-4, K
  • 1B Matt Oberste: 1-4, R
  • 3B Neifi Zapata: 1-4, R, 3B
  • RF Victor Cruzado: 1-3, K
  • 2B Jorge Rivero: 0-2, RBI
  • LF Patrick Biondi: 0-3, 2 K
  • C Jeff Glenn: 0-3, K
  • RHP Ricky Knapp: 6.1 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, BB, 3 K
  • RHP Dawrin Frias: 1.2 IP, 2 H, ER, K, HR

Short Season A - Brooklyn Cyclones (19-22)__________________________________


Michael Conforto continues to acquit himself nicely to professional baseball. The first-rounder picked up his fourth multi-hit game of the week last night, lacing a single and an RBI double. After a week as a pro, his line sits at .407/.429/.556. Too soon to PROMOAT?

  • DH Adrian Abreu: 0-4
  • C Tomas Nido: 0-3, BB
  • 3B Jhoan Urena: 1-3, R, 2B BB, K
  • LF Michael Conforto: 2-4, 2B, RBI
  • 1B Michael Katz: 1-3, BB, K
  • 2B Tyler Moore: 2-4, R, 2B, K
  • RF Michael Bernal: 1-4, 2 K, CS
  • SS Dimas Ponce: 0-2
  • PH Wiliiam Fulmer: 0-1, K
  • CF Tucker Tharp: 0-3, RBI, K
  • RHP Octavio Acosta: 5 IP, 10 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (16-18)______________________________________

BURLIINGTON 3, KINGSPORT 2 (Box / 10 innings) (Game one)

'Twas a rough day for Kingsport, as they were outscored 10-4 en route losing both ends of a doubleheader with the Rookie League Royals. Shortstop Jose Martinez pretty much single-handedly won the game one for the Royals by beating out an infield hit in the bottom of the tenth, stealing second base, and then coming all the way home when he attempted to a steal third on a very wild pitch uncorked by reliever Bryce Beeler.

  • SS Luis Guillorme: 0-5
  • 2B Jean Rodriguez: 2-5, 2B
  • LF Oswaldo Caraballo: 0-5, K
  • 3B Eudor Garcia: 0-3
  • 3B Leon Canelon: 0-2
  • DH Pedro Perez: 0-4, BB, 3 K
  • RF Wuilmer Becerra: 0-5
  • 1B Andrew Massie: 1-2, R, 2 BB, K
  • C Miguel Leal: 1-4, R
  • CF Ivan Wilson: 1-4, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K
  • RHP Yoryi Nuez: 4 IP, 2 H, 2 ER, BB, 3 K
  • RHP Bryce Beeler: 3 IP, H, ER, 3 K


Wuilmer Becerra had two of Kingsport's three hits in the nightcap. The 19-year old is hitting .425 with a .667 slugging percentage over his last ten games. He now has 100 at-bats for the season and his line is .320/.355/.530. The 4/26 BB-to-walk ratio over the same span could use some improvement, however.

  • 2B Braden Kaupe: 1-3, 3B, 2 RBI
  • SS Leon Canelon: 0-3
  • 3B Pedro Perez: 0-3, K
  • DH Eudor Garcia: 0-3, K
  • 1B Luis Ortega: 0-3, K
  • RF Wuilmer Becerra: 2-3, R, K, SB
  • LF Vincente Lupo: 0-2, R, BB, 2 K
  • C Jose Garcia: 0-3
  • CF Jose Figuera: 0-1, BB, K
  • RHP Andrew Church: 5.0 IP, 7 H 4 ER, BB, 2 K

GCL Marlins 14, GCL Mets 1 (Box)

  • CF John Mora: 0-2, BB
  • CF Rafael Ramirez: 0-1
  • REHAB ALERT SS Wilfredo Tovar: 0-2, BB, K
  • 3B Manuel Hilario: 0-1
  • LF Enmanuel Zabala: 0-3, 2 K
  • LF Arnaldo Berrios: 0-1
  • 1B Dash Winningham: 0-4, K
  • RF Henglebert Rojas: 0-3, BB

  • C Dionis Rodriguez: 2-4, R, 2B, HR, RBI
  • DH Milton Ramos: 0-2, BB, K
  • 3B-2B Alvin Maracaro: 0-2, BB
  • LHP Adrian Almeida: 1.2 IP, 5 H, 4 ER, 2 BB, K

Star of the Night
Greg Peavey gets the star for turning in the best pitching performance of the evening.

Goat of the Night
Hate to pick on Rookie League guys, but that GCL Mets box score is all sorts ugly.
