Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (24-20)_______________________________________


All the people clamoring for the Mets to demote Matt Harvey after another poor start and call up one of the Vegas starters got a dose of reality last night. Sean Gilmartin got rocked for nine runs (all earned) on ten hits in just four-and-a-third innings as the 51s fell to the Sounds. Dilson Herrera went 2-for-4, lifting his season slash line to .279/.313/.513. With injuries and ineffectiveness piling up, Herrera may be needed by the big club soon. Gavin Cecchini is another name who may see major league playing time soon if the Mets need reinforcements. He was 3-for-4 with two doubles and is hitting .315/.402/.427 and has walked nearly as many times as he's struck out to open the season.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (18-25)_____________________________________


The BMets' struggles continued as they were shut out by the Flying Squirrels. A rehabbing Wilmer Flores went 2-for-3 in place of regular first baseman Dom Smith, and Flores will be needed soon. Matt Oberste was 2-for-4 with a double, but otherwise, the offense was nowhere to be found. Tyler Pill allowed two runs in six innings but had a 4:4 K:BB ratio in the game. Bingo sports an 18-25 record on the season.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (23-21)_____________________________________


St. Lucie got a nice start out of Scarlyn Reyes, who has been struggling mightily so far this year. Unfortunately, Jimmy Duff's turn in relief put the game out of reach. The Garden City native didn't record a single out in allowing three runs on four hits in the eighth inning. Amed Rosario was 1-for-3 with two walks, and has a .306/.365/.462 triple slash line through 43 games for the SMets. Luis Guillorme went 1-for-2 with a walk, as well.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (23-22)__________________________________


Summer is nigh, and the Fireflies' bats are heating up. Columbia put up a 14-spot on the GreenJackets, with nearly everyone contributing. Kevin Kaczmarski filled the box score with a home run, four RBIs, a steal, and three hits. Catcher Patrick Mazeika, hitting cleanup, continued to rake in his short time at Columbia. The 22-year old from Stetson (alma mater of Jacob deGrom) has a very nice .361/.460/.534 in 69 games across two levels the last two seasons. Andrew Church, in his first appearance at the level, struck out nine in five innings, allowing just two hits and walking nobody. Church was the Mets' second-round pick in 2013, and will look to build on the start after a shaky minor league career thus far.
