Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (63-49)_______________________________________


Double-A - Binghamton Mets (61-48)_____________________________________


Bowie plated two unearned runs off of B-Mets starter Robert Gsellman early, but those two runs would turn out to be their only runs of the game. Binghamton quickly came back, scoring two runs of their own in the bottom of the second to tie things up. Brock Peterson broke the tie with a sac fly in the third, and T.J. Rivera gave Binghamton a little insurance with an RBI single in the fifth. The B-Mets erupted for five runs in the seventh, putting the death knell on the Baysox.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (56-52 /21-17)_____________________________________


Another win for the streaking St. Lucie Mets, this time in dramatic fashion. They got on the board first, scoring three runs in the top of the fifth on a two-run Matt Oberste triple and a Dom Smith RBI single, but the Miracle scored four off of Miller Diaz in the sixth to put St. Lucie behind. With two outs in the ninth, St. Lucie staged a comeback, plating four runs, all off of Nick Burdi. Kyle Regnault was a little shaky in the bottom of the inning, but notched his third St. Lucie save successfully.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (60-48 / 21-17)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 4, ROME 3 / 10 (Box)

Ricky Knapp was more than solid in Savannah's matinee start yesterday afternoon, limiting the Rome Braves to only one run over seven innings. The outing was Knapp's fifth straight start in which he pitched six or more innings, and fourth of his last five in which he allowed two or fewer runs. The Sand Gnats got on the board in the top of the fourth, scoring two runs on a Jean Rodriguez double. Rome scored their one run off of Knapp in the seventh, but Savannah immediately negated it, as Michael Katz came up in the top of the eighth and lined a single off of the second baseman's glove into right field that scored Luis Guillorme. Luis Mateo, who had relieved Knapp to start off the eighth, remained in the game for the ninth. After issuing a walk, Matt Tellor made him pay by hitting a triple down the right field line, making it a 3-2 ballgame. Cameron Griffin relieved Mateo and the other shoe fell, and pinch hitter Omar Obregon tied the game with an RBI double.

Savannah wasted little time getting back on top. Luis Guillorme led off the inning with a double and came home to score a few batters later, on a Jean Rodriguez groundball back up the middle. Griffin stayed in for the tenth, and things got very interesting, but the ‘Gnats were able to hold on to sweep Rome. With the victory, the Sand Gnats are also the winners of fourteen of their last fifteen games.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (23-21)_______________________________________


Well, that stunk. Pedro Perez and Zach Mathieu combined to pitch two scoreless innings, allowing one walk (Perez), one hit (Mathieu), and two strikeouts (both Mathieu), so there was that.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (20-22)__________________________



Bristol unloaded on Darwin Ramos for four runs in the third, and the Kingsport offense just wasn't able to catch up. Kingsport got on the board first, plating a run in the top of the first on a Patrick Mazeika RBI single. They almost made it two runs that inning, but Mazeika was thrown out trying to score from second a few batters later. Kingsport scored two more runs in the fifth, bringing them within a run of the Pirates, but ran out of regulation innings.



This game was the make-up from the rainout on July 13. Things weren't looking good for Kingsport going into later innings, as the team trailed 6-0 going into the top of the ninth. Out of nowhere, the team exploded for seven runs, taking the lead. Scooter Hightower, the Bristol starter, pitched to three batters that inning, and left the bases loaded for his replacement, Mike Wallace. Wallace gave up a fourth consecutive single to Ivan Wilson to put Kingsport on the board, and proceeded to allow six more runs to score. Dillon Becker, on the mound for Kingsport in the bottom of the inning, was unable to close the door, allowing a game-tying home run in the bottom of the seventh, forcing the game into "extra innings". In the eighth, with two men on, Arnaldo Berrios laced a triple into center that drove in two, giving Kingsport the lead once again. This time, the bullpen held the lead, splitting the double-header.

Rookie - GCL Mets (21-17)__________________________


Well, well, well, look what we have here. Marcos Molina, who most believed was going to need Tommy John Surgery (and let's be honest- he still might need it), tossed three scoreless innings in a rehab assignment yesterday afternoon, his first appearance since May 13. The right-hander induced a ground ball and struck out two, both looking, in his first inning of work. In the second, he induced a pair of weak infield flies and a groundout so weak that catcher Anthony Dimino fielded it. In the third, he got a flyball, a groundout, and ended things by striking out Clayton Brandt looking.
