Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (2-3) __________________________________


Stolmy Pimentel walked a tight rope in his first two innings of work before the River Cats broke through for three runs in the top half of the third. Pimentel threw 76 pitches through his 2.2 innings of work. The offense was stymied by the River Cats pitching, featuring former major league pitcher Vin Mazzaro throwing five innings of shutout baseball. The 51s managed just seven hits and when they did have base runners, they managed to run themselves into outs. In the fourth inning, Marc Krauss was thrown out at third base trying to advance from second base on a ground ball to the shortstop. Later in the same inning after Danny Muno reached on a hit by pitch, pitcher Chase Hutchingson singled to center and Muno was thrown out attempting to go first to third. Brandon Nimmo went hitless in the ballgame striking out twice and Dilson Herrera grounded out to short in his pinch hitting appearance.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (2-2) _____________________________


After striking out 14 times yesterday, the B-Mets registered a season-high in hits with nine and evened up the series with Harrisburg at one game a piece. Dom Smith entered Wednesday with just one hit in 14 at-bats but broke out with his first multi-hit game of the season. After grounding out in his first at-bat, Smith stroked a single to right and then doubled to left field in his third at-bat. Perhaps most impressively, Smith worked a walk against a left-handed reliever in his fourth plate appearance. He fouled off multiple pitches, two with two strikes, to work himself into a full-count before drawing a walk. Rainy Lara earned the win in his first start of the 2016 season, throwing five scoreless innings while working around a runner on third base in the second and third innings.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (5-2)______________________________

METS 7 - BLUE JAYS 2 (Box)

St. Lucie scored all seven runs in the first inning, providing all the offense the pitching staff would need to cruise for the team's fifth win of the season. The Mets capitalized on five walks and a dropped line drive in the infield to make it 4-0 in the first inning. Luis Guillorme then added a two-run single to push the score to 6-0. The game also saw John Mora's six-game hitting streak snapped. Lefty reliever Josh Edgin, making his way back from Tommy John surgery, made another rehab appearance. He was called upon to get the final two outs of the sixth inning with a runner on. He surrendered a run-scoring single on his first pitch but retired the next two batters on infield pop-ups, throwing a total of five pitches in his 0.2 innings of work.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (4-3)________________________________


Columbia's pitching, combining for 14 strikeouts, dominated the Rome Braves to complete the three-game sweep. 20-year-old Chase Ingram led the way with six scoreless innings while racking up eight strikeouts and throwing 57 of his 77 pitches for strikes. The Fireflies took a 1-0 lead on a David Thompson RBI single in the third inning but the Braves tied the game in the fourth and took a 2-1 lead in the fifth. However, after Thompson walked and moved to second on a wild pitch in the sixth, Dash Winningham tied the game with an RBI single. Winningham then moved to second base on another wild pitch and Joe Tuschak hit a single to right to score Winningham. Tuschak delivered the go-ahead run for the second consecutive night.
