Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (18-17)__________________________________


The night after a typical PCL slugfest, we get a pitcher's duel between Rafael Montero and Julio Urias. Neither disappointed, as both tossed six scoreless frames. If you want to get technical, Montero outpitched the soon-to-be Dodger, as he allowed one fewer hit and struck out one more batter, resulting in game scores of 73 and 70, respectivley. In the end, it became a battle of bullpens, and Jeff Walters served up a homer to Jack Murphy in the eigthth that was the deciding run of the game.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (15-19)____________________________



Rainy Lara was terrible in his return to the mound, giving up seven runs in an inning plus. His Sea Dog counterpart, the Met prospect that could have been, Teddy Stankiewicz, was just a bit better, throwing a complete game. Stefan Sabol hitting his first home run of the season is more or less the only halfway positive thing that occurred.



The B-Mets bats woke up in Game Two, led by Dom Smith, who hit his fourth home run of the season, and farmhand Kyle Johnson, who hit his first. On the mound, Tyler Pill was sharp, saving the bullpen by pitching all seven innings of the shortened make-up game.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (20-15)_______________________________

ST. LUCIE 3, FORT MYERS 2 / 11 (Box)

Both St. Lucie and Fort Myers pitchers pitched relativley well, allowing only two runs a piece through nine innings. With two outs in the bottom of the eleventh, Wuilmer Becerra singled, stole second, and came home to win it after Michael Katz singled on a line drive into left. With the win, St. Lucie leapfrogged Fort Myers and are currently in first place in the division.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (18-17)________________________________


After falling behind 3-0, the Fireflies scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth, but were unfortunatley unable to get over the hump. Tyler Badamo threw seven innings but was allowing baserunners on all night, giving up eight hits and walking two. That came back to bite him in the second, third, and sixth, when the Tourists scratched out runs. Columbia, meanwhile, was held scoreless until the ninth, when Drasen Johnson -€” in his third inning of relief work -€” allowed a Jeff Diehl double and then moved him over on a wild pitch. Ivan Wilson scored him on a double of his own, and was in turn driven in by Jose Garcia. College bats Kevin Kaczmarski and Vinny Siena both made outs to end the game, stranding pinch runner Joe Tuschak on second.
