Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (17-15)_________________________________

El PASO 4, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)

El Paso snapped the 51s' four-game winning streak and picked up the win in the second game of the four-game series. The Las Vegas bats were stymied in this one, only managing four hits. Two of those hits came off the bat of Dilson Herrera, including a solo home run on the first pitch he saw. It was Herrera's fourth home run of the year.

Other than Herrera, the rest of the offense was shut down by journeyman Jeremy Guthrie, who spun seven innings of one-run ball. The 51s had an opportunity for a comeback in the eighth inning with first and second, one out, on back-to-back walks to Herrera and Brandon Nimmo, but Herrera was thrown out trying to steal third. Then, after a Johnny Monell walk to make it first and second once again, Travis Taijeron struck out to end the threat. Duane Below had his best start of the year, yielding two runs in seven innings.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (14-16)_____________________________


The B-Mets lost their fifth straight game and got swept by the Fightin' Phils in a three-game set. They staged a late game rally, punctuated by a Matt Oberste grand slam and a Dom Smith sac fly to make it a 7-6 game in the top of the eighth, but it was not enough. Reading answered right back with two runs in the bottom half of the eighth inning to put the game out of reach. B-Mets' starter Mickey Jannis gave did not pitch well, giving up seven runs on six hits while walking four in his five innings of work.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (18-14)______________________________

Amed Rosario may have had only one hit last night, but he made it count. With runners on first and second base in a 2-2 tie ballgame in the top of the ninth, Rosario laced an RBI double down the right field line to give the Mets a 3-2 lead. The Mets then extended the lead to 4-2 when the throw into the infield got away on Rosario's double. Wuilmer Becerra then tacked on an RBI single to put the game out of reach. Becerra broke his 13-game hitting streak two nights ago but quickly started a new streak, going 3-for-5 last night. The Mets' pitching held Jupiter in check, as starter Corey Oswalt tossed six innings of two-run ball. The Hammerheads started the sixth inning with four straight base hits to take a 2-1 lead but Oswalt induced a double play and a ground out to limit the damage.
