Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (35-33)__________________________________

LAS VEGAS 8, SALT LAKE 0 (Box)

The 51s took the lead in a six-run fifth and didn't look back. Gabriel Ynoa, fresh off his worst start of the season, pitched seven scoreless innings, increasing his record to 8-2 on the season and lowering his ERA to 3.45, the former of which is the best in the PCL and the latter one of the best.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (28-38)____________________________

TRENTON 4, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

Trailing for most of the game, the B-Mets took the lead in the top of the eighth on a pair of Thunder errors. They were unable to hold the lead though, allowing the tying run to score in the bottom of the inning, and then a Trenton walk-off victory in the bottom of the ninth.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (33-31)_______________________________

NO GAME (ALL-STAR BREAK)

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (35-34)________________________________

ASHEVILLE 5, COLUMBIA 4 / 10 (Box)

Down by a run in the top of the ninth inning, Jeff Diehl hit a dramatic home run off of Delvin Burke to tie the game 4-4. Unfortunately for the Fireflies, Alex Palsha allowed a homer himself in the bottom of the tenth, giving Asheville a walk-off victory.

Short-A -€” Brooklyn Cyclones (0-2)__________________________________

STATEN ISLAND 2, BROOKLYN 1 / 10 (Box)

I should be more careful what I wish for.

I got to see history, the first no-hitter taken into and completed extra innings in NY-Penn League history, so that's cool I guess? I also got to see Harol Gonzalez, so another plus there. I'm sure there was plenty of Mets bias there, but to me, he looked like the best pitcher on the field, better than Drew Finley and his third round pedigree and better than Josh Roeder and his masterful four inning, ten strikeout relief performance. I sat near a scout and was able to steal a few radar gun readings on a few of his fastballs. They ranged from sat 89-94, but because I was trying to be conspicuous and not literally craning my neck and reading over his shoulders the entire game, I am not sure if there were further range variations in its velocity. The couple of change-ups I caught read 84 and 86. He featured a breaking ball, but it was pretty ineffective for most of the night. He did log one strikeout, a swinging Daniengar Perez strikeout to start the fifth, on one that featured sharp slider movement. I don't know if it was the same pitch as the one he had been using that just finally broke, or if it was a different pitch alltogether. Gonzalez worked both sides of the plate to lefties and right-handers, and liked pitching inside.
