Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52-38)_______________________________________


Despite Dillon Gee being bad again, the 51s prevailed thanks to an an eight run outburst. Alex Castellanos and Brandon Allen both hit home runs, and Dilson Herrera wen 1-for-4 with a double.

  • 2B Dilson Herrera: 1-4, R, 2B, BB, 2 K; .347 average, .880 OPS, and a 138 wRC+ in Vegas
  • SS Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4, R, RBI
  • DH Anthony Recker: 1-3, R, 2 BB
  • LF Brandon Allen: 2-4, R, HR, 2 RBI
  • CF Cory Vaughn: 1-4, R, 2B, 2 K
  • C Dan Rohlfing: 1-4, R, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • RF Travis Taijeron: 0-3, BB, K
  • 3B Alex Castellanos: 3-4, R, HR, 4 RBI; that Muno is getting another chance over Castellanos baffles me
  • RHP Dillon Gee: 6 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K; Gee is still bad, that is all
  • LHP Chase Hutchingson: 1 IP, H, BB, K
  • LHP Scott Rice: 1 IP, K

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (44-42)_____________________________________


Binghamton overcame a mediocre start from John Gant to beat Portland, bashing out seven runs on eighteen hits. Gavin Cecchini and Michael Conforto broke out of slumps with four and three hits respectively. Josh Rodriguez, Xorge Carillo, Aderlin Rodriguez, and Eudy Pina also had multi-hit days. Cecchini did however make his 20th error of the season, and Brandon Nimmo went only 1-for-5.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (38-37 / 5-6)_____________________________________


St. Lucie had sixteen hits but was held in check until the seventh inning, when two Lakeland errors allowed the Mets to tie the game at four. They took the lead in the top of the ninth on an Amed Rosario RBI single. Rosario, making his return from a week-and-a-half long absence due to a hand injury, had four hits to raise his average to .270. Meanwhile, Dominic Smith hit another double in the first inning to drive in a run, and raised his average back over .300 with a 2-for-5 day.

  • CF Champ Stuart: 1-3, R, BB, K
  • 2B Jeff McNeil: 0-4, R, 2 K; poor game notwithstanding, it seems like McNeil will be promoted after the Florida State League All Star Game
  • 1B Dominic Smith: 2-5, 2B, RBi
  • RF Victor Cruzado: 3-5, 2 R, 2B, RBI, 2 K
  • SS Amed Rosario: 4-5, RBI; missed the past nine games with a hand injury
  • RHP Mickey Jannis: 6 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 5 K
  • RHP Jeff Walters: 1 IP, K; working his way back from Tommy John

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (40-34 / 4-7)__________________________________


SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (14-6)_______________________________________


Matt Blackham had a rough start, allowing five runs in four-and-two-thirds innings, but the Cycones were able to tie the game at five in the seventh inning with the help of a couple Hudson Valley errors. The game remained tied til the twelfth, when David Thompson threw the ball away on a sacrifice bunt, allowing the winning run to score.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (10-8)__________________________


Kingsport improved to ten and eight on the season with a win over Elizabethton. Org guy Audrey German threw seven good innings, and 2015 12th round pick Joe Shaw pitched two innings to secure his third save. For those wondering, Milton Ramos was reassigned to the GCL so that both he and Luis Carpio could get regular reps at SS.

Rookie - GCL Mets (8-9)__________________________


The Mets blew a three run lead late when Keaton Aldridge and Jose Carlos Medina combined to allow five Marlins runs in the eight inning, and a ninth inning comeback attempt fell short. The loss dropped the GCL Mets below 500 for the season. In rehabbing prospect news, Jhoan Urena and Luis Mateo both made appearances as they work their way back from injury.

  • RF Ricardo Cespedes: 2-4, 2 R, 2B, RBI, BB
  • 3B Jhoan Urena: 1-2, E (1); good to see Urena, who was rumored to be out for the season
  • C Ali Sanchez: 1-5, K; threw out the only attempted steal
  • CF Ivan Wilson: 1-4, 2B, 3 K
  • LHP Joel Huertas: 6 IP, 3 H, BB, 3 K
  • RHP Luis Mateo: 1 IP, 2 K; working his way back from Tommy John Surgery

Star of the Night

Gavin Cecchini, whose four hit performance narrowly edges out Amed Rosario's four hit day.

Goat of the Night

David Thompson
