Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (65-51)_______________________________________


The Bees knocked out fourteen hits against the 51s' pitching corps in their 9-6 victory over Las Vegas, giving them the series victory. Nick Tropeano, the Salt Lake starter, wasn't particularly good, allowing nine hits and five earned runs over four plus innings- he did strike out nine, so there is that- but Dillon Gee was even worse, allowing ten hits and seven earned runs over four-plus. With the exception of a Chasen Bradford run in the sixth, the Las Vegas bullpen did their part, and held the Bees scoreless. The offense, however, was stymied, with Anthony Recker's ninth inning solo home run the only other run they were able to scratch out.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (62-51)_____________________________________


Binghamton avoided being swept, winning the finale with their series against the Trenton Thunder yesterday afternoon at NYSEG, the last game they will play with the Yankees affiliate this year. Trenton scored both of their runs in the third inning. Tyler Pill hit the number nine hitter, Jose Rosario, with a pitch to begin the frame, and then allowed a single to Jake Cave. Tony Renda plated Rosario with an RBI groundout to second base and Tyler Austin followed with an RBI single up the middle to make it 2-0. In the fourth, the B-Mets put up a three spot. Cale Coshow loaded the bases and allowed three RBI hits. Gavin Cecchini led off the fifth with a double and came around to score when T.J. Rivera lined a single into center, that Thunder centerfielder Jake Cave misplayed. Relievers Josh Smoker, Jon Velasquez, and Paul Sewald each pitched a scoreless inning, preserving Binghamton's lead.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (58-54 /23-19)_____________________________________


St. Lucie held on to beat Jupiter 3-2, taking the series with the Hammerheads. The Mets took a 2-0 lead in the first against Ben Holmes. Yeixon Ruiz and Victor Cruzado led off the inning with singles and scored on a wild pitch and Dominic Smith sac fly, respectively. In the fourth, Amed Rosario made his triumphant return from the DL and hit a two-out double, and was driven home by Ruiz a few batters later. Jupiter got on the board in the fifth and cut the Mets' lead to one run in the eighth. Jake Kuebler pitched out of big jams in the eighth and ninth, earning a save

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (64-48 / 25-17)__________________________________


The Sand Gnats continued their second-half surge, sweeping the RiverDogs and going undefeated on their seven-game road trip. Down 1-0 in the fourth, Savannah took advantage of some shoddy defense and took the lead 2-1. Charleston tied things 2-2 in the bottom of the inning, but Savannah went ahead in the fifth on a groundball off the bat of Luis Guillorme, and added an insurance run in the eighth on back-to-back-to-back singles. Josh Prevost was serviceable over his five-plus innings, while Ben Griset, Luis Mateo, and Christian Montgomery all tossed scoreless innings, the latter earning his first save with the Sand Gnats.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (24-24)_______________________________________


I've been to some "tough to watch" Cyclones games, and this one is probably in my top five list. On the bright side, I got to see Johnny Magliozzi, who has taken over the Juan Urbina shaped hole in my heart vis-à-vis the Cyclones, but sitting through this one was a slog. The Cyclones scored in the top of the third on a William Fulmer line drive into center that plated Alfredo Reyes. A few innings later, in the fifth, Staten Island evened things when Thairo Estrada hit a dunker into shallow center that plated Drew Bridges. For what seemed like the next two hours, both teams got plenty of opportunities and failed to score. Seriously- neither team pitched a clean 1-2-3 inning until the bottom of the ninth, when P.J. Conlon set the Yankees' 7, 8, and 9 hitters down in order. After, miraculously, a clean tenth for both sides, the Cyclones finally plated a run in the eleventh, when Vinny Siena hit a soft liner into right to score Alfredo Reyes. Alex Palsha, of course, couldn't pitch a clean eleventh, but he kept Staten Island off the board for his eleventh save of the year.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (23-22)__________________________


The Kingsport Mets got the better of the Johnson City Cardinals in a crazy back-and-forth affair that took twelve innings to decide. Down by one in the ninth inning, Dash Winningham led off the inning and was replaced by Jose Figuera on the base paths. The move proved successful as the speedier Figuera scored on Patrick Mazeika's double, tying the game at 2-2. In the top of the tenth, Witt Haggard had issues with his control, walking two and allowing the go-ahead run to score. In familiar territory, down by one with three outs to go, Kingsport once again pulled a miracle from out of nowhere, tying the game on a Dale Burdick double that scored Luis Carpio. After Chase Ingram pitched a clean twelfth, Kingsport rallied in the bottom of the inning to win the ballgame. With one out and the bases loaded, Milton Ramos sliced a line drive into left to score Dale Burdick and win the ballgame.

Rookie - GCL Mets (24-18)__________________________
