Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (60-49)_______________________________________


The 51s got the better of the 35-year-old Chien-Ming Wang (geeze, where does the time go? I remember seeing him as a 20-year-old with Staten Island), plating three runs in the bottom of the first. The veteran was able to regroup and held Las Vegas off the board for the rest of his time on the mound. Darin Gorski, meanwhile, was solid early on but faltered a bit, allowing a pair of runs to score in the top of the fourth. At 93 pitches, Wang was replaced by Jose Ramirez in the eighth, and the Las Vegas bats came alive once again, pushing two more runs across the plate. After Zach Lutz walked, Brandon Allen hit a home run, giving the 51s a 5-2 lead. Vic Black put a few men on base in the ninth, but was able to get the necessary three outs, notching his first save of the year with Las Vegas.

ROSTER ALERT: Seth Lugo has been promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (60-48)_____________________________________


For the second straight game, the B-Mets clubbed three home runs, this time beating the Bowie Baysox at NYSEG in a battle of two first place teams. With two outs in the first, Brock Peterson doubled into left to drive in Josh Rodriguez, scoring the first run of the game. One inning later, Jonathan Galvez and Jared King both went yard, giving Binghamton an early 3-0 lead. Given the lead, Tyler Pill proceeded to retire 11 of the next 12 batters he faced. In the bottom of the fifth, Binghamton loaded the bases thanks to a few Bowie defensive mishaps, and Josh Rodriguez made Sean Bierman pay by socking his second grand slam of the season, giving the B-Mets a commanding 7-0 lead. The Baysox finally got on the board in the sixth, and scored a second run in the seventh, but Beck Wheeler slammed the door shut over the last two innings.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (55-52 /20-17)_____________________________________


Despite a sloppy performance defensively resulting in a season-high four errors, the St. Lucie Mets beat the Fort Myers Miracle for their fourth straight win thanks to a whopping fifteen hits- fourteen of them singles. Matt Oberste, Dom Smith and Yeixon Ruiz all recorded three-hits, while Jhoan Urena picked up two. Stefan Sabol was the only St. Lucie hitter to go hitless. Scarlyn Reyes struggled, and was pulled in the fifth with bases loaded and the Mets up by one run. Robert Coles came up clutch, inducing a weak fly and a ground ball to prevent the Miracle from pulling off a miracle. St. Lucie scored three more runs in the sixth to give themselves a little more breathing room. The runs would prove fortuitous, as Fort Myers was able to plate a run off of Coles in the seventh- which would have been the tying run if they hadn't. Mike Hepple kept them off the board over the final two innings, recording his second save and preserving the victory for St. Lucie.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (59-48 / 20-17)__________________________________


Savannah absolutely manhandled every single pitcher that the Rome Braves threw at them. The Gnats hammered out twenty runs on twenty-four hits. Eudor Garcia was the only position player to go without a hit, and that is because he was removed from the game after getting hit by a pitch in the second. Patrick Biondi led the team with five hits, followed by Luis Guillorme with four and Wuilmer Becerra, Jonathan Johnson, and Jean Rodriguez with three.

ROSTER ALERT: Joe Tuschak has been placed on the disabled list

ROSTER ALERT: Chris Flexen has been activated from the disabled list

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (23-20)_______________________________________


Tyler Badamo allowed a first inning run but otherwise looked like he was going to pitch a good game, recording five of his first six outs via strikeout (four swinging, one looking). The third began with a Michael Bernal error that turned what should have been a routine out into a situation with a man on third and no outs. After getting another swinging strikeout, he allowed a sac fly, giving the Spinners a 2-0 lead. Badamo, unfortunately, would not get out of the inning, as injury struck. Ruben Reyes recorded the last out of the inning but ran into trouble in the fourth. After David Thompson scored a run in the top of the inning to make it a 2-1 game, Reyes loaded the bases, and a costly fielding error by Vinny Siena allowed two runs to cross the plate. Lowell would go on to plate one more runner, while Brooklyn was unable to plate more than that one run.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (19-20)__________________________

BRISTOL 10, KINGSPORT 8 / 10 (Box)

What a wild one down at Hunter Wright Stadium. It took them ten innings, but the Bristol Pirates beat the Kingsport Mets 10-8. The two teams combined for eighteen runs, twenty-three hits, and ten errors- seven of which were Kingsport's. After Kingsport scratched and clawed their way back to tie the game, and forcing extra innings, they dropped the ball- literally. After recording two outs, Chase Ingram allowed a single to Tomas Morales. Morales promptly stole second, and scored one of two runs when Ivan Wilson made a costly fielding error.

Rookie - GCL Mets (20-17)__________________________
