Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (71-56)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 1, IOWA 2 (Box)

  • PH Cesar Puello: 0-1, K; Sigh.
  • SS Matt Reynolds: 3-6, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI, K; His second homer gave the 51s the lead in the top of the 12th only to see Kris Bryant end it in the bottom half with a walkoff bomb. Say what you want about BABIP (it ain't BABIP if it leaves the park) and the PCL, I'm impressed with Reynolds. The defense wouldn't be good but I'll take all the prospects I can get who can play a non-horrific shortstop.
  • 3B Josh Satin: 1-4, 2 R, HR, RBI, 2 BB
  • RF Andrew Brown: 2-5, R, HR< 2 RBI, 2 K
  • C Kevin Plawecki: 3-4
  • CF Cory Vaughn: 0-5, 3 K; No idea why he's in Vegas.
  • 1B Allan Dykstra: 2-5, R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 K
  • RHP Cory Mazzoni: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, BB, 7 K; Possible bullpen piece for 2015? Starting pitching depth? Looks like Mazzoni could figure into the plans next year.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (73-50)_____________________________________

ERIE 4, BINGHAMTON 9 (Box)

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (27-25 / 67-54)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 8, FORT MYERS 9 (Box)

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (34-20 / 78-42)__________________________________

GREENVILLE 0, SAVANNAH 4 (Box)

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (32-28)__________________________________

LOWELL 1, BROOKLYN 5 (Box)

  • CF John Mora: 0-3, R
  • SS Amed Rosario: 1-4, K
  • LF Michael Conforto: 2-3, 2 R, BB; There seems to be some indifference or, perhaps, resignation to Conforto continued presence in the Brooklyn lineup. I'm probably more bothered by it than most, if only because it makes me think of the Wilpons more than I like to. It's likely that getting him at-bats against more advanced competition would be beneficial to his development, and I care more about his development than Brooklyn making the playoffs in the NYPL.
  • 3B Jhoan Urena: 1-2, R, HR, 2 RBI, 2 BB, K
  • C Tomas Nido: 2-4, 2 RBI, K
  • DH Adrian Abreu: 0-2, R, BB
  • 2B Tyler Moore: 0-2
  • 1B Pedro Perez: 0-2, BB
  • RHP Corey Oswalt: 6 IP, 4 H, R, 0 ER, BB, 4 K

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (28-26)__________________________________

BRISTOL 3, KINGSPORT 5 (Box)

Rookie - GCL Mets (25-23)__________________________________

GCL METS 5, GCL MARLINS 6 (Box)

Star of the Night

I've been hard on him and he hit his two in regulation, so Ivan Wilson gets the star.

Goat of the Night

Matt Koch, who finally had his picture loaded to his milb.com page and revealed that he kind of resembles Flea from the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.
