Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (62-51)_______________________________________

EL PASO 8, LAS VEGAS 5 (Box)

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (64-46)_____________________________________

NEW HAMPSHIRE 7, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

The Fisher Cats scored four runs in the top of the first, and that really set the tone for their eventual 7-2 win over Binghamton. New Hampshire was up 2-0 before Greg Peavey even recorded an out, and they scored another two before he was able to end the inning. The B-Mets lost their chance to get on the board in the 1st thanks to a double play, but were able to score in the 2nd on a Jayce Boyd. They got plenty of chances throughout the evening, but were only able to cash in one more time, in the 6th, when Darrell Ceciliani laced a double into right field to score Brian Burgamy. All in all, the B-Mets left eight men on, and were 1-12 with men in scoring position. New Hampshire scored three more late runs to put the icing on the cake, though all three were unearned.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (19-17 / 59-46)_____________________________________

GAME ONE

DUNEDIN 3, ST. LUCIE 4 (Box)

Michael Fulmer wasn't exactly pretty, but he got the job, keeping Dunedin's bats mostly silent for six innings. St. Lucie got on the board first, plating a run apiece in the 4th and 5th, and two in the 6th. The Blue Jays would not go down quietly, though. In the 8th inning, third baseman Gustavo Pierre drove in a run with an RBI single and second baseman Christian Lopes followed with a two RBI double. With the lead cut to 4-3, Beck Wheeler was removed in favor of T.J. Chism, who stranded the tying run at second in the 8th and retired everyone he faced in the 9th.

With the win, the St. Lucie Mets' success at home continues. They are now 13-3 at home in the second half. Michael Fulmer, in particular, has enjoyed pitching at Tradition Field: the right-hander has not given up a run in his last 19 innings when starting at home.

GAME TWO

CANCELLED

The Mets and Blue Jays were scheduled to play a doubleheader today, making up the rainout from Tuesday, July 29th. The game was cancelled, as, according to minor league baseball rules, a team cannot play three doubleheaders in a seven-day span. St. Lucie played two doubleheaders over the weekend in Daytona, so a doubleheader yesterday would have been their third in five days. St. Lucie and Dunedin played a normal, nine inning game in what would have been Game One, and both teams called it a day.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (23-15 / 67-37)__________________________________

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (24-22)__________________________________

AUBURN 4, BROOKLYN 9 (Box)

The Cyclones sent eleven men to the plate in the 2nd inning, scoring seven runs. Auburn starter James Bourque had a complete meltdown- asides for allowing five hits and a walk, he hit batter, balked in a run, and allowed Anthony Chavez to steal home off of him. The Cyclones and the Doubledays traded runs after that big inning, but ultimately, a seven-run deficit is a hard hole to dig out of.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (19-20)__________________________________

KINGSPORT 8, DANVILLE 3 (Box)

Kingsport came out of the gate with guns blazing. Six batters stepped to the plate before Danville starter Andry Ubiera recorded his first out. Kingsport punished him for five runs in the inning, on two singles (Luis Guillorme and Zach Mathieu), two doubles (Oswald Caraballo and Eudor Garcia), a triple (Wuilmer Becerra), a walk (Pedro Perez), and a passed ball. Danville got plenty of chances to get on the board- starter Yoryi Nuez walked seven batters and gave up three hits in his five innings, basically putting a man at first and second every inning- but it took them until the 5th inning before they actually did. After the Braves scored two in the 5th and one in the 7th, Kingsport recouped those losses by scoring a run of their own in the 8th and a pair of runs in the 9th. With the series win, Kingsport is just a game under .500.

Rookie - GCL Mets (18-17)__________________________________
