Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (2-2)_______________________________________

SACRAMENTO 5 - LAS VEGAS 4 (Box)

Sean Gilmartin struggled early, using 74 pitches to get through just 3.2 innings. He allowed seven baserunners in that time, though he danced through raindrops in allowing one run. Erik Goeddel and Dario Alvarez combined to allow seven baserunners and two runs in two innings, as neither seemed to have their best stuff. Brandon Nimmo, back in the leadoff spot after a successful night hitting eighth, didn't do much. He worked back from 0-2 in his first at-bat but ultimately struck out swinging. In the third, he got what the box score called a double but was really an error on Gorkys Hernandez—who, yes, is still playing baseball—on what was a well-hit liner to center. Gavin Cecchini, the other big name in the lineup, drew a walk but otherwise didn't do much. Dilson Herrera struck out in his pinch hitting appearance.

  • Double-A - Binghamton Mets (1-2)_____________________________________

    HARRISBURG 4 - BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

    The B-Mets got stuck facing the best pitching prospect on the planet in Lucas Giolito, and it showed early in the extra-innings matchup. Across his four innings, Giolito struck out four and allowed just one hit, though he did walk three. The most intriguing matchup of the night was the big Harrisburg righty against Dom Smith. He made Smith look foolish on a curveball in the second, and allowed a sac fly in the fourth after walking two batters. Smith went 0-for-6 with three strikeouts and seemed to be fishing at times. He is hitting .071 on the young season. Victor Cruzado had a nice night, going 2-for-5 with a walk, and Akeel Morris pitched a clean inning. Luis Mateo gave up a run, allowed a walk, and was charged with the loss.

    Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (4-2)_____________________________________

    METS 1 - BLUE JAYS 0 (Box)

    St. Lucie played a tight game, and got some nice production out of its bigger names. Amed Rosario, hitting out of the three hole, went 2-for-4 with a triple. Champ Stuart, the second-best name in the org, lead off and stole a base. Jhoan Urena went 0-for-3, and Luis Guillorme went 1-for-4. Starter Casey Delgado, the 25-year old righty out of Austin Peay, allowed just five baserunners over six innings, striking out five, as the PSL Mets moved to 4-2.

  • Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (3-3)__________________________________

    Columbia played one scheduled game and a makeup game that had previously been postponed. In the scheduled game, the Fireflies did a nice job hitting highly-touted Braves prospect Touki Toussaint in the first game. They scored three runs on five hits with three walks off of 19-year old righty. Dash Winningham, the cleanup hitter and best name in the organization, was 0-for-6 across two games. He was picked up by Ivan Wilson and David Thompson, who both hit doubles, the latter with one in both games. The real story was starting pitching. Tyler Badamo, the 23-year old righty out of Downling College on Long Island. Badamo allowed just one run across six innings, scattering five hits and not walking anybody. Joe Shaw, the 22-year old righty and 2015 12th-round pick, struck out eight batters across six innings, walking none. He allowed two runs, one on a groundout and one on an Austin Riley homer.
