Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (51-38)_______________________________________

GAME 1

LAS VEGAS 6, SALT LAKE 4 (Box)

In the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader, Luis Cessa pitched five-and-two-thirds strong innings, giving up six hits, walking none, and striking out six. The defense and bullpen failed him in the sixth, as Wilfredo Tovar and Alex Castellanos both committed throwing errors and Chase Bradford allowed both inherited runners to score.  The offense was able to salvage a win, however, scoring four runs on a wild pitch and a bases-clearing double from Cory Vaughn.

GAME 2

LAS VEGAS 2, SALT LAKE 0 (Box)

In his return to the 51s, Logan Verrett through five great innings, striking out six while walking only one and giving up three hits. Fourty-two of his sixty pitches went for strikes. Cody Satterwhite, Scott Rice, and Zach Thornton kept the shutout intact, and RBIs from Alex Castellanos and Brandon Allen were enough to secure a sweep of the doubleheader.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (43-42)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 2, NEW BRITAIN 1 (Box)

MIchael Fulmer continued his 2015 renaissance, throwing seven innings of one-run ball with seven strikeouts and no walks. Brock Peterson's sixth-inning home run tied it, and Jared King drove in the winning run in the seventh to push Binghamton back over .500.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (42-43 / 7-8)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 7, CHARLOTTE 2 (Box)

Rays' top prospect Taylor Guerrieri shut down St. Lucie for four innings, but Victor Cruzado, Stefan Sabol, and Phil Evans provided some offensive thump in the late innings to lead a comeback win for St. Lucie. Kevin McGowan pitched poorly, but escaped allowing only two runs. Amed Rosario remains sidelined with a hand injury.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (44-41 / 5-10)__________________________________

GAME 1

SAVANNAH 7, LEXINGTON 4 / 7 (Box)

In game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader, Eudor Garcia and Thomas Nido homered and Scarlyn Reyes came one out shy of a seven-inning complete game. Wuilmer Becerra remains sidelined.

GAME 2

LEXINGTON 3, SAVANNAH 0 / 7 (Box)

In Game 2, Michael Gibbons received the rare complete game loss. He didn't pitch poorly, but the Gnats could only muster three hits and didn't score.


SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (14-5)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 1, HUDSON VALLEY 0 / 7 (Box)

Brooklyn pitchers Blake Taylor (the ghost of Ike Davis) and Andrew Church were dominant in three innings each as the Cyclones won a rain-shortened game over Hudson Valley. Tucker Tharp drove in the only run of the game with a double in the third inning.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (9-8)__________________________

ELIZABETHTON 9, KINGSPORT 7 / 11 (Box)

Kingsport lost an eleven-inning slugfest to Elizabethton. Raphael Ramirez and Luis Carpio went a combined 2-for-11, and starter Erik Manoah got shelled for five innings.

Rookie - GCL Mets (8-8)__________________________

GAME 1 (completed suspended game from 6/24)

GCL MARLINS 5, GCL METS 4 (Box)

  • SS Dale Burdick: 1-1. R. RBI, BB
  • DH Ali Sanchez: 0-4, K
  • 1B Victor Moscote: 2-4, K
  • LHP Max Wotell: 1 IP, BB, 2 K
  • RHP Luis Carreno: 1.1 IP, H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 B, K, L
  • RHP Anthony Chavez: 0.2 IP, H

GAME 2

GCL METS 1, GCL MARLINS 0 / 7 (Box)

Mets' starter Merandy Gonzalez threw a seven-inning no-hitter against a Marlins lineup that included their 2015 first-round pick, Josh Naylor. Two runners reached on errors, and Naylor walked, but Gonzalez shut down the Marlins otherwise. He currently has a 10.23 K/9, a 1.23 BB/9, and a 2.05 ERA. A promotion to Kingsport seems likely at some point.
