Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (75-65)_______________________________________

EL PASO 10, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)

Ugh.  The pitchers got blown up for four long balls and the batters got five hits.  The good news: Brandon Nimmo started in center field AND hit his second AAA dinger (4th of the season overall).

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (74-61)_____________________________________

READING 2, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)

In a pitcher's duel that saw only five total hits between the two sides, RHP Mickey Jannis was rolling until two outs in the seventh, when he allowed an infield single, a steal, a walk, a wild pitch, and a two-out, two-run single.  Jonathan Galvez tripled with two outs in the ninth for Binghamton, but Xorge Carillo flew out to end it.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (67-68 / 32-33)_____________________________________

BRADENTON 4, ST. LUCIE 2  (Box)

Scarlyn Reyes pitched well but was charged with the loss although a two-run homer allowed by reliever David Roseboom in the seventh ended up being the difference-maker.

In lesser news, 1B Dominic Smith got the day off after winning a Player of the Year Award or something.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (82-51 / 43-20)__________________________________

GREENVILLE 6, SAVANNAH 5 (Box)

Savannah jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first, but Greenville chipped away until they found themselves down 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth, when Andrew Benintendi of the Drive (who is having a nice season) cracked a walk-off two-run blast off of LHP Alberto Baldanado.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (33-39)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 5, CONNECTICUT 3 (Box)

Alfredo Reyes played the ignitor, leading off each inning the Cyclones scored by reaching base.  Connecticut loaded the bases with two outs in the seventh, but Craig Missigman came in and put out the fire with a strikeout.  The Tigers also got runners on second and third in the ninth but Carlos Valdez survived the adventure for his fifth save of the year.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (40-28)__________________________

***APPALACHIAN LEAGUE WESTERN DIVISION PLAYOFFS, GAME 1***

KINGSPORT 2, GREENVILLE 1 (Box)

Darryl Knight hit a ninth-inning solo homer to put the Mets ahead for good in a nail-biting opener to the postseason.  Knight, who hit only .155 during the regular season but did have seven homers in 110 at-bats, also threw out a runner on the basepaths which ended up looming large as the Astros hit a home run a batter later.  For the season, Knight has cut down 13 of 30 would-be base-stealers, good for a 43.3% rate.

Aside from surrendering the home run, starter Gabriel Llanes pitched well into the seventh, where he left with two on and one out.  Chase Ingram got a pop out and a strikeout to end the threat, and Witt Haggard closed up shop by striking out the side in the ninth.

Game 2 will be Friday night in Kingsport, 7 p.m.
