Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (54-38)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 10, ALBUQUERQUE 5 (Box)

The 51s started the second half with a run-of-the-mill Pacific Coast League contest. Zach Lutz made quite the return to the organization, knocking out four of the team's 19 hits in his Vegas re-debut. Wilfredo Tovar was the only 51s starter to go hitless in support of a so-so Matt Bowman start. Sorry, SAMBA.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (46-43)_____________________________________

TRENTON 3, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

Michael Fulmer took the bump for the newish look B-Mets as they kicked off their second half against the Thunder. Fulmer managed to limit the damage, but didn't seem to have his best stuff on this night. Michael Conforto went deep for Bingo, but the rest of the lineup didn't offer much in the way of resistance to Trenton pitching.

  • SS Gavin Cecchini: 0-3, BB
  • 2B L.J. Mazzilli: 1-3, BB, K; I had assumed the recent cuts were to make room for Jeff McNeil on the B-Mets infield, forgetting the Maz has been manning second base for a while now. But Mazzilli has not been lighting the Eastern League on fire and at this point he is blocking a significantly better prospect.
  • LF Michael Conforto: 1-4, HR, R, RBI; There will be weeks and weeks of To PROMOAT or not to PROMOAT talk around Conforto. There is likely no long term downside to throwing him to the major league sharks, but expectations that he is a slam dunk to be immediately better than Cuddyer are overly optimistic.
  • 1B Brock Peterson: 1-3, BB, K
  • CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-3, BB
  • 3B Josh Rodriguez: 0-4
  • RF Joe Benson: 1-4, R, K
  • Xorge Carrillo: 0-3, K
  • DH Jared King: 2-3, SB
  • RHP Michael Fulmer: 5.0 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 2 K
  • RHP Matt Koch: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
  • RHP Beck Wheeler: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
  • LHP Dario Alvarez: 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K; No rest for the dude that just pitched in the All-Star Game yesterday I guess.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (12-9 // 47-44)_____________________________________

DUNEDIN 6, ST. LUCIE 2 (Box)

The Mets 7-game winning streak came to a crashing halt. Starter Kyle McGowan got touched up in his six innings of work, and St. Lucie managed just five hits.

  • 2B Jeff McNeil: 1-4, R, BB, SB; Really don't know what the 23-year-old McNeil is still doing here.
  • RF Victor Cruzado: 1-3, 2B, R, 2 BB, K; Since people like to talk about my "small sample size scouting" in the comments, I will mention that Cruzado took the best at-bats from both sides of the plate in my recent look at St. Lucie, and made a pretty nice diving catch in RF. He's not much more than a good org guy, but sometimes you do catch a guy on a good stretch. You are never doing results-based analysis though.
  • DH Matt Oberste: 1-5, 2 K
  • 1B Dominic Smith: 1-3, 2 BB, K, E
  • LF Stefan Sabol: 0-5, RBI, 2 K
  • SS Amed Rosario: 1-3, RBI, BB, K
  • 3B Jhoan Urena: 0-3, BB, K; Nice to see him back in the lineup after whispers that the hamate injury might cost him the whole season.
  • Colton Plaia: 0-3, BB, 2 K
  • CF Champ Stuart: 0-4, K
  • Kevin McGowan: 6.0 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
  • David Roseboom: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
  • Kelly Secrest: 1.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K
  • Jeff Walters: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K; Working back-to-back days now and should be close to rejoining Vegas. Velocity was down a tick when I saw him on rehab in the GCL, but the FB command looked all the way back.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (7-13 // 46-44)__________________________________

GAME 1: SAVANNAH 4, ASHEVILLE 3 (Box)

The Gnats and Tourists split two, and Toby Hyde had to stay up way past his bedtime due to a rather long rain delay in the first game.

GAME 2: ASHEVILLE 4, SAVANNAH 1 (Box)

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-10)_______________________________________

STATEN ISLAND 1, BROOKLYN 0 (Box)

The Cyclones played another tight, low-scoring affair against their cross-borough rivals, and again ended up on the wrong side of it. Matt Blackham was dominant in six innings of work, but 80s teen movie villain and Staten Island starter Kolten Mahoney got the better of him in this one.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (11-11)__________________________

PRINCETON 7, KINGSPORT 6 (Box)

Rookie - GCL Mets (12-10)__________________________

GCL METS 3, GCL MARLINS 2 (5) (Box)

Star of the Night

Zach Lutz

Goat of the Night

Kyle McGowan
