Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (67-54)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 9, ALBUQUERQUE 6 (Box)

The 51s trailed by two heading into the bottom of the eight, but Matt Reynolds led off the frame with a single and the next three batters followed suit to make it a one-run game. After pinch-hitter Kevin Plawecki grounded into a force out, Taylor Teagarden tied things up with a soft liner to center. The 51s tacked on three more scores via a fielder's choice and a bases-clearing double from Daniel Muno to seal the come from behind victory.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (70-48)______________________________________

HARRISBURG 2, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)

The B-Met lineup pounded four doubles, but only mustered five hits total against a quartet of Harrisburg hurlers. Dilson Herrera sat for the second consecutive day, as he's still nursing back to health the finger he jammed while sliding on Wednesday. Brandon Nimmo, meanwhile, grounded out as a pinch hitter in the seventh. That's his first appearance since injuring his hand on Sunday.

High-A - St. Lucie Mets (23-21 / 63-50)_____________________________________

FORT MYERS 4, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)

On the plus side, Gavin Cecchini seems to be catching up to Florida State League pitching. He's hammered out 14 hits in 36 trips to the plate over his last ten games and hasn't struck out once in that span. He's also drawn seven walks to bump his ten-game line to .389/.477/.556.

Not to be outdone by their elders in Las Vegas, the Kingsport Mets exploded for seven runs in the eighth against the Bristol Pirates.

As for the Dominican Summer League affiliates, both Mets1 and Mets2 wound up victorious.

Cesar Puello for making it way too easy for Wally Backman to bench him for today's game.
