Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (37-33)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 8, SALT LAKE 5 (Box)

The 51s survived another mediocre start from Rafael Montero to beat Salt Lake 8-5. Montero allowed four runs in six-and-two-thirds innings, striking out three and walking one. Las Vegas caveats apply, but Montero hasa 5.02 FIP in Triple-A this season. Josh Edgin pitched a strong inning-and-a-third, striking out three. Gavin Cecchini went hit-less but walked twice, while Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-4 with a walk. Dilson Herrera was out of the lineup but was at the ballpark, so no call-up seems imminent.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (28-39)_____________________________________

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (34-31)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 2, TAMPA 0 (Box)

Two St. Lucie pitchers combined to shut out Tampa in a 2-0 win. Chris Flexen pitched very well, tossing eight scoreless innings with four strikeouts and no walks, and Ben Griset pitched a clean inning to lock down the save. Amed Rosario, whose non-promotion is puzzling, went 1-for-4 with an RBI. Luis Guillorme had two hits and a walk, while Jhoan Urena went hit-less with a walk.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (36-34)__________________________________

NO GAME (ALL STAR BREAK)

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (1-3)_______________________________________

TRI-CITY 10, BROOKLYN 9 / 17 (Box)

Yet another marathon affair in Brooklyn went against the Cyclones as they fell 10-9 to Tri-City in seventeen innings. The Cyclones have now played 56 innings (20, 9, 10, 17) in their first four games of the season, which is truly ridiculous. Santo Marte, a second baseman by trade, got the call to the mound once the Brooklyn relievers were spent. He didn't allow a run in the sixteenth, but surrendered four in the seventeenth. Undeterred, the Cyclones came storming back, scored three in the bottom of the seventeenth and would have tied it if not for some poor baserunning on the part of Emmanuel Zabala, who hesitated on contact despite there being two outs in the inning. Zabala would be stranded at third when Brandon Brosher struck out with the bases loaded to end the game. Truly a classic for the Short Season annals, though it's too bad the Cyclones were on the losing end of it.
