Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (18-15)_________________________________

LAS VEGAS 7, EL PASO 2 (Box)

The 51s' 1-3 hitters went a combined 1-for-14, but man, did everyone else pick up the slack, as Roger Bernadina had three hits and three runs scored, Travis Taijeron and Nevin Ashley each went deep with solo shots, and Matt Reynolds chipped in with an RBI double. However, El Paso did take a 1-0 lead in the first as speedster Manny Margot singled, advanced to second on a balk, stole third, and then scored on a single before most people even got to their seats. Despite the rough start, this would be the only blemish on Gabriel Ynoa's night as he hurled eight strong innings and induced eleven groundouts to aid the 51s to a 7-2 victory.

Stolmy Pimentel hopes to continue the Vegas winning ways against the Chihuahuas tonight at Cashman Field.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (14-17)_____________________________

PORTLAND 6, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

The losing streak persists across state lines as Mets were downed at Hadlock Field last night in a 6-2 defeat that was never close. Robert Gsellman took the loss allowing three runs in five innings pitched. Matt Oberste's two-run home run in the ninth was Bingo's only offense in this otherwise dreary affair; he paced the the team with three hits including two of the extra-base variety.

The B-Mets continue their series against the SeaDogs with a twi-night doubleheader that begins at 5:00 PM; the probables are Rainy Lara and Andrew Barbosa.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (18-15)______________________________

JUPITER 4, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

Hey, this is more the FSL box scores we have known to love over the years! The Hammerheads took a 3-0 lead in the first inning against Ricky Knapp last night, albeit aided by a Luis Guillorme error, and never looked back. St. Lucie was 0-for-8 with runners in scoring positions and Wuilmer Becerra's hot bat was tamed by a tandem of three Jupiter pitchers.

The Advanced-A Mets return home to Tradition Field tonight to begin a series against the Fort Myers Miracle, with Scarlyn Reyes taking the bump for a 6:30 PM start.
Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (18-15)________________________________

ASHEVILLE 4, COLUMBIA 1 (Box)

The Tourists knocked off our Sally League heroes 4-1 last night at Spirit Communications Park. Thomas McIlraith and Asheville starter David Hill went through each of the five innings unscathed until McIlraith was the first to blink in the top of the sixth as leadoff double was converted into a run via a groundout and a sacrifice fly. Columbia was able to tie the game as Kevin Kaczmarski gallivanted home after a passed ball. The remained tied until the top of the eighth when McIlraith was touched up for three runs, with the big hit coming in the form of Rockies uber-prospect Brendan Rodgers'  RBI double. Despite the workings of a Columbia ninth-inning comeback in process, Rodgers then speared a Milton Ramos line drive and doubled up Joe Tuschak off second base to end the game.

The Fireflies and the Tourists tangle again in Columbia tonight, Kevin Canelon hopes to get back on the winning ways starting at 7:05 PM.

Star of the Night

Gabriel Ynoa

Goat of the Night

I'm proffering this to most hitters in the Mets' system tonight. You know who you are.
