Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (41-37)_______________________________________


A very PCL box score tonight, as at least one team scored in eight of nine innings, combining for 24 runs. Gabriel Ynoa got crushed for nine runs (six earned) on eleven hits in five innings. Hey, at least he didn't walk anyone! Dilson Herrera, rather uncharacteristically, went 0-for-5 with an error and a strikeout. Michael Conforto, sent to Triple-A to find his swing again, went 2-for-5 with two runs and a walk. Travis Taijeron was 3-for-6, and has a .302/.387/.560 line for the year. That's more the result of a .418 BABIP than any significant contact rate improvement on Taijeron's part, unfortunately. He has a 144 wRC+ for his MiLB career, but the odds that translates to the majors are slim. Kevin Plawecki hit a double and drove in a run as well as a pinch hitter.


Bingo dropped another game to the Curve and are now 11 games under .500. It doesn't look to be a fun season upstate, though the addition of Amed Rosario will certainly make the team more interesting. Speaking of Rosario, he was 2-for-4 and drove in two runs, hitting out of the five hole in his fourth game at the AA level. Jose Reyes, playing third base and leading off, was 0-for-4 with a run after reaching on an error. Josh Zeid, most recently seen with a 5.06 ERA in the Atlantic League (as in the independent league the Long Island Ducks play in), got knocked around. Dom Smith, named to the Futures Game yesterday, was 1-for-4 with a home run.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (37-36)_____________________________________


St. Lucie has been on a mini-skid since Amed Rosario moved north, and the team dropped a high-scoring affair to the Stone Crabs despite scoring eight runs in under three innings against Chris Pike. That's because the St. Lucie pitching and defense was a nightmare, with five players combining to allowed 11 runs (seven earned) on 14 hits and four walks in just eight innings. Champ Stuart was 2-for-4 with a stolen base, and has been hitting a red-hot .361 over his last ten games. He's raised his season line to .262/.343/.399, and has 21 steals in 24 attempts.

Wuilmer Becerra was 2-for-5 with two doubles, and has a strong .318/.351/.406 line this year. While you'd like to see the power and patience develop (he only has a .060 ISO and a 4.1% walk rate that continues a steady decline from rookie ball), Becerra is still just 21 years old. Luis Guillorme, the lone touted shortstop left in Florida for the Mets, was 0-for-5 and committed two errors. They were his second and third errors of the season at shortstop and eighth and ninth overall. Not great news for a guy whose glove is supposed to carry him through the system.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (37-38)__________________________________


Well, one of the organizational teams had to score a bunch of runs and still manage to win, right? J.C. Rodriguez had two walks, two steals, and two runs to hopefully bust him out of a slump. David Thompson, who is ready for a higher level of competition, went 2-for-4 with a home run and drove in five runs. In 56 games, Thompson is hitting .292/.345/.483 for the Fireflies. Dash Winningham went 4-for-5 and has found his contact stroke a bit lately. He's hitting .270 over his last ten games, up from .239 in the previous 55. Joe Shaw, much like every other pitcher in the org seemingly, gave up a handful of runs in a mediocre showing.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (6-6)_______________________________________


Finally, a pitching performance worth talking about! Harol Gonzalez walked into Medlar Field at Penn State and became the big man on campus. Gonzalez, the 21-year old righty from the Dominican Republic, struck out ten and walked just one, allowing three hits and one run in six innings. After a bumpy 13 appearances for Kingsport last year, Gonzalez has fared far better to open this campaign. South Carolina product Gene Cone was 1-for-4 from the leadoff spot. Arnaldo Berrios, Brandon Brosher, and Dale Burdick provided a big spark at the bottom of the lineup, combining to go 7-for-13.
