Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (35-29)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 8, RENO 7 (Box)

After limping into June and starting the month off with a five game losing streak, the 51s have righted the ship somewhat, beating up on their favorite punching bag, the Reno Aces. The 51s swept the other Nevada team, adding to their lead in the Silver State Diamond Challenge.

Las Vegas jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the 2nd, and then plated two more in the 5th, giving the 51s a 6-0 lead going into late innings. In his last inning of work, the 8th, Logan Verrett gave up a run, while his replacement, Cody Satterwhite allowed a three-run homer, making it a 6-5 ballgame going into the 9th. John Church, who replaced Satterwhite in the 9th, was not up to the challenge, as he immediately gave up a solo home run and then walked his next two batters. Without ever retiring a batter, he was replaced by Jon Velasquez. The Bronx native allowed two runners to score in the process of getting the game's last three outs, but was able to navigate out of the predicament he was brought into without allowing the tying run to score.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (33-30)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 6, NEW BRITAIN 5 (Box)

Trailing by a run in the 9th, Binghamton rallied to walk-off and sweep the three-game series with the Rock Cats, Bingo's first sweep at NYSEG this season. After a back-and-forth game that saw both teams employ small-ball and the long ball, the B-Mets found themselves down coming into the 9th. Jared King led off the inning drawing a walk against New Britain closer Austin House. House committed a costly error during the next play. Eudy Pena came to the plate to sacrifice and move King up, but House threw the ball away when he fielded the bunt, allowing King to advance to third and Pina to reach base. Josh Rodriguez lined a single into left, plating King and tying the game. Albert Cordero pinch-hit for Gavin Cecchini, who was 0-4 on the night and was unsuccessful in advancing Pina. He hit a come backer that House cleanly fielded to get the lead runner at third. L.J. Mazzilli had a slightly more constructive at-bat, hitting a fielder's choice that erased Cordero at second. With runners on the corners and two outs, up came Michael Conforto. The Mets' top hitting prospect stroked a line drive into center to plate Josh Rodriguez, his second walk-off RBI this month.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (32-31)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 5, PALM BEACH 2 (Box)

Kevin McGowan pitched his best game of the 2015 season yesterday, shutting down the hapless Palm Beach Cardinals for eight innings. He scattered four hits and gave up two runs, but both were unearned. After St. Lucie took a 1-0 lead in the 2nd, Maikis De La Cruz committed a fielding error in the 3rd that led to the Cardinals' only two runs for the night. Dominic Smith provided the tying and go-ahead runs for St. Lucie in the 6th, scoring two on a double into right field, and Jeff Glenn and Victor Cruzado added a little extra insurance in the 7th and 8th. Akeel Morris, your newest New York Mets reliever, closed out the game to earn his thirteenth save and lock down the series for St. Lucie.

  • 3B Jeff McNeil: 2-4, 2B, SB (9)
  • REHAB ALERT CF Brandon Nimmo: 0-3, R, BB, K; Nimmo's gonna Nimmo
  • LF Maikis De La Cruz: 0-3, R, BB, 2 K, E (1)
  • DH Matt Oberste: 2-4, R, 2 K
  • 1B Dominic Smith: 4-4, R, 2B, 2 RBI; I, for one, welcome our new first base overlord
  • SS Amed Rosario: 0-4, RBI
  • RF Victor Cruzado: 1-3, 2B, RBI, BB
  • 2B Phil Evans: 0-4, 2 K
  • C Jeff Glenn: 1-4, R, HR (1), RBI, K
  • RHP Kevin McGowan: 8 IP, 4 H, 2 R (0 ER), 0 BB, 4 K
  • RHP Akeel Morris: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K, SV (13); Gotta figure Morris will be back in the minors- at some level- to continue adding to that save total for the season. As the president of DAMN (Da' Akeel Morris Nation), I'm excited to see him get a cup of coffee at the very least.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (34-29)__________________________________

HICKORY 8, SAVANNAH 1 (Box)

Brad Wieck's spot in the rotation was due up yesterday, but because he was announced as the PTBNL to complete the Alex Torres trade with the Padres, Savannah had to obviously pencil someone else in. Ricky Knapp was that man. The right-hander turned in five strong innings, scattering three hits and striking out four, but the offense could not solve Yohander Mendez or his replacement, Ariel Jurado. In the 6th, Dawrin Frias came in to pitch, and the Crawdads quickly got to him, putting up a two-spot. The Gnats got a run back in the top of the 7th on an Adrian Abreu RBI single, but Frias gave up another two runs in the bottom of the inning, setting Savannah further back. In the bottom of the 8th, he and Ben Griset combined to give up four more runs, completely putting the game out of reach for Savannah.
