Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (27-16)_______________________________________


For six innings, Matt Bowman was spinning one of his strongest starts this season to date. The right-hander had only allowed two runs- one earned- and had been staked to a 4-2 lead. After the Princeton grad recorded the first out of the inning, things fell apart. Two consecutive singles and a walk loaded the bases and pinch-hitter Brian Burgamy made his former 2014 teammate pay. Burgamy laced a double into left, plating two runs, tying the game, and chasing Bowman from the game. John Church was brought in and he immediately allowed a run to score when Dan Rohlfing was unable to handle a pitch. A sac fly later, and the Oklahoma City Dodgers were up 6-4 on the 51s, your final score.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (24-18)_____________________________________


Until the 9th inning, the B-Mets were playing from behind. John Gant allowed a pair of runs to score in the 1st and in the 4th. Binghamton recouped some of those runs, scoring a runs of their own in the 1st, 6th, and 8th, but going into the bottom of the 9th, they were still down by a run. Aderlin Rodriguez began the inning inauspiciously, grounding out, but a Jairo Perez single and Gilbert Gomez put men on first and second for Gavin Cecchini, who was 2-4 with a home run up until that point. Garin Cecchini's little brother delivered, hitting a ground ball into right that scored pinch runner Dustin Lawleyand tied the game. Jared King grounded out for the second out of the inning, but Josh Rodriguez kept things going with a walk. With the bases loaded, up came Jayce Boyd. Digging in, the infielder-turned-outfielder waited for Louis Head's offering. The right-hander dealt and...his pitch completely missed outside the zone, crossing up catcher Tony Wolters. The ball bounced away and Gavin Cecchini bounced over home plate to score the winning run.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (20-22)_____________________________________


While the New York Mets were getting shut down in Pittsburgh, the St. Lucie Mets were hitting the cover off of the ball in Dunedin. Recording their twentieth win for the season, St. Lucie scored a whopping fourteen runs on nineteen hits and four walks. Eight out of nine position players recorded at least two hits, while Michael Conforto recorded three and Jeff McNeil recorded four. Kevin McGowan pitched cromulently enough, and the bullpen was flawless after he was removed from the game.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (19-23)__________________________________


Savannah and Rome both hammered out ten hits each, but Rome made theirs count, while the Sand Gnats had trouble driving those runs in. The Mets' affiliate left ten men on base, and were 4-14 with runners in scoring position. A Tyler Moore double in the 2nd gave Savannah an early lead, but that lead would be short lived, as Martires Arias imploded in the 4th. The big man recorded only a single out that inning- a sac fly- to one hit, three walks, and two wild pitches. Ben Griset came in to stop the bleeding but immediately allowed a little league grand slam to Joseph Daris- scored as a triple with an error by John Mora that allowed Daris to score. Down by four runs, the Sand Gnats did scrap and claw their way back, but every time they did, Rome scored as well. When Savannah scored a run in the top of the 6th, Rome scored a run in the bottom of the inning. When Savannah  scored three runs in the top of the 7th, Rome scored three runs in the bottom of the inning.

The loss was Savannah's first in this series, and only their second to the Braves affiliate this season. They'll look to take another from Rome this afternoon, in the series finale, with Scarlyn Reyes on the mound.
