Michael Fulmer- Gordon Donovan (2015)

*All results from games played on Saturday, July 4, 2015

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (46-37)_______________________________________

ALBUQUERQUE 10, LAS VEGAS 2 (Box)

Luis Cessa's successful run in Double-A (7-4 with a 2.56 ERA in 13 starts) earned him a promotion to Las Vegas, where he was promptly lit up in his first start. Cessa didn't make it out of the fifth, allowing seven runs on 11 hits to Albuquerque. Welcome to the PCL, Luis.

Anthony Recker homered for the second consecutive game and Cessa hit an RBI groundout in the fourth to drive in the 51s only other run on the evening

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (41-39)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 5, PORTLAND 2 (Box)

Binghamton rode Gavin Cecchini's second-inning grand slam and another solid start from Michael Fulmer to a 5-2 win over Portland. Fulmer struck out eight over six innings and lowered his ERA on the season to 2.29. He has now posted five consecutive starts allowing just one run or less. Over that five-game span he has whiffed 34 batters in 30.1 innings.

Aderlin Rodriguez also homered for Binghamton.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (40-40 / 5-5)_____________________________________

FORT MYERS 5, ST. LUCIE 3 (Box)

St. Lucie bats were held in check for the first six innings by Fort Myers' starter Mat Batts (yes, you read that correctly) in a 5-3 loss. St. Lucie mounted a furious two-out, ninth-inning rally behind an RBI single from Colton Plaia and a two-run single by Jeff McNeil, but Jairo Perez grounded out, stranding the tying runs on base to end the threat.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (42-37 / 3-6)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 3, GREENVIlLE 1 (Box)

Corey Oswalt notched his sixth victory by allowing just one run while pitching into the eighth inning as Savannah shut down Greenville 3-1. It was Oswalt's third consecutive start allowing one run or less. Vincente Lupo homered for the fifth time this year and Michael Katz doubled twice and drove in a run to pace the Sand Gnats' offense. Jimmy Duff pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his eighth save.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (10-5)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 2, WILLIAMSPORT 0  (Box)

Cyclones' starter Matt Blackham went seven shutout innings and Brandon Brosher launched his first home run of the season to help Brooklyn to a 2-0 win over Williamsport.

Brooklyn got on the scoreboard in the fourth with a two-out rally. Vincent Siena singled. David Thompson, and Jeff Diehl then followed with walks. Siena scored from third on a wild pitch with Zach Mathieu at the plate. Brosher's home run in the bottom of the eighth provided a little insurance. Blackham was strong on the hill, picking up his second victory on the season, allowing just two hits and a walk, while recording nine strikeouts.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (5-7)__________________________

BURLINGTON 3, KINGSPORT 2 (Box)

Rookie - GCL Mets (7-4)__________________________

GCL METS 5, GCL NATIONALS 1 (Box)

The GCL Mets scored all five runs in the fourth inning of a five-inning, rain-shortened affair over the GCL Nats. Andrew Church pitched the final two innings to pick up the win, giving up no runs on a single hit, while striking out three.
