Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (40-34)__________________________________

RENO 9, LAS VEGAS 4 (Box)

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (29-42)____________________________

BINGHAMTON 7, RICHMOND 6 (Box)

It was a wild ride, but the B-Mets finally snapped their six-game losing streak, staving off a late inning rally by the Flying Squirrels at win one at home 7-6. Mickey Jannis wasn't great, but neither was Richmond starter and Giants prospect Kyle Crick. The game was decided by offense and bullpens, and luckily for Binghamton, theirs proved just slightly better.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (1-1 / 36-33)_______________________________

ST. LUCIE 4, PALM BEACH 3 / 14 (Box)

It took them fourteen innings, but the St. Lucie Mets finally eeked out a victory over the Palm Beach Cardinals. Things looked dire, as the Cardinals actually scored first, plating a run in the top of the fourteenth to make it a 3-2 game, but the St. Lucie bats came thundering back and walked off. Well, not really. Landon Beck, the Palm Beach pitcher, just could not find the plate. He walked four batters that inning, including the tying and go-ahead runs.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (0-2 / 36-36)________________________________

AUGUSTA 19, COLUMBIA 7 (Box)

Oy vey.

Short-A -€” Brooklyn Cyclones (3-5)__________________________________

BROOKLYN 2, CONNECTICUT 1 (Box)

Merandy Gonzalez looked legit in his second start in Brooklyn. He allowed a single run over six innings, and not to discount it, but the run scored on a wild pitch he uncorked. Brooklyn had already scored two runs at that point, and Bryce Beeler was able to keep the Tigers in check, so the run that did score really didn't factor into anything. Gonzalez's fastball sat in the low-to-mid 90s, and hit 96 late. He had his curveball working, and the pitch simply overpowered Connecticut hitters, and likely will overpower NY-Penn League hitters throughout the rest of the summer.

Rookie -€” Kingsport Mets (0-1)__________________________________

ELIZABETHTON 4, KINGSPORT 0 (Box)

Jordan Humphries pitched the best game of his short professional career as a starting pitcher- it was his first- but has nothing but a big, fat 0 to show for it in the win column. The right-hander gave up two runs in four innings, striking out ten, but Kingsport was unable to score even one measley run off of any of the three pitchers the Elizabethton Twins sent out to the mound on the night.

Rookie -€” GCL Mets (0-1)__________________________________

GCL NATIONALS 7, GCL METS 3 / 11 (Box)

The GCL Mets kicked off their season in poor fashion, not only losing by a few runs but losing by a few runs in extra innings. The GCL Nats scored three runs early off of Aneury Olivo, but the left-hander settled down and proceeded to put up zeroes. The GCL Mets clawed their way back, scoring two in the bottom of the seventh and one in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings. Things went well for an inning, but in the eleventh, Richard Reina hit his first batter and walked the next, and things went downhill from there. The GCL Nats plated four runs in the frame, winning their first game and handing the GCL Mets a loss.
