Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (27-24)_______________________________________

RENO 10, LAS VEGAS 6 (Box)

Another day, another strong game from Dilson Herrera. The 22-year-old second baseman went 2-for-5 and drove in two runs, upping his season slash line to .280/.322/.489. He's MLB-ready, but currently blocked. If he keeps hitting the way he has, though, there is no way the Mets can keep him down. Speaking of middle infield prospects who are raking, Gavin Cecchini's 3-for-4 night raised his triple slash to a very clean .308/.390/.400. While the power is down a bit from last year at Bingo, it was never his calling card to begin with. Even if he can't stick at short—and the evidence suggests he's well below average there—has a nearly even K:BB rate and makes good contact. Seth Lugo had a nice appearance (every starter in the organization threw a quality start yesterday) but it was squandered by a pen that allowed seven earned runs in two innings of combined work.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (20-30)_____________________________________


The BMets put a hurting on the not-quite Stony Brook Seawolves, but are still ten games under .500. Derrik Gibson had a big day, going 4-for-6 and scoring three runs. He now has a .360 OBP fro the year. Dom Smith went 1-for-4 from the cleanup spot, and has just a .713 OPS so far this year. Matt Oberste continued his assault on Eastern League pitching, and has a team-leading .809 OPS after his 3-for-4 with a home run day. Robert Gsellman continued his strong season, throwing six innings of two run ball. He uncharacteristically walked as many as he struck out, but still leads the team's starters with a 2.93 K:BB ratio (yeah, Bingo's pitching has left a bit to be desired). Gsellman has a 2.78 ERA and a 1.13 WHIP in ten starts this season. Akeel Morris struck out two to finish the game off, and shaved his ERA down to 3.80. If he can reign in his walks, he'll become an excellent pen piece.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (25-26)_____________________________________

FT. MYERS 4, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)

Not much to write home about here, as the Miracle's Tyler Jay mowed the SMets down, striking out 11 and allowing just three baserunners in eight innings. Jay has a 2.44 ERA, 3.92 K:BB, and is living up to his first round pick billing. His counterpart, Josh Prevost, did the bare minimum required for a quality start, but had a rather middling start in all. Amed Rosario, Luis Guillorme, and Wuilmer Becerra were all 0-for-3.

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


Columbia held on against a late Rome comeback to beat Touki Toussaint and the Braves. Kevin Canelon had a decent start, scattering eight hits and three runs (two earned) across six-and-a-third. He now has a 3.16 ERA for the season. Kevin Kaczmarski, who has been red hot his last ten games, hit a bases-clearing double to give Columbia almost everything it needed for the win. David Thompson stole a base, and is now 6-for-6 in his theft career. He was 0-for-3 with a walk, but sports a .288/.351/.473 line for the season.
