Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (31-27)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 13, TACOMA 2 (Box)

Man, it's too bad the Mets don't have offensive depth at the upper levels of the minor leagues to plug holes on the major league roster. Oh, wait a minute. The entire Vegas squad hit last night in support of a fantastic Gabriel Ynoa start, en route to a 13-2 win. Instead of giving you individual game breakdowns, here are some numbers for how three big names have hit so far. Dilson Herrera is hitting .284/.327/.493 with nine home runs and six steals. Brandon Nimmo is hitting .317/.394/.481 with three home runs and 14 doubles. Gavin Cecchini is hitting .326/.394/.410 and has walked nearly as often as he has struck out. Now, these are PCL-inflated numbers of course, but the big three are certainly working to force their way into the MLB picture.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (24-32)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 6, TRENTON 4 (Box)

Bingo took on the Yankee affiliate and won thanks to a big game from Victor Cruzado and solid bullpen work from Alberto Baldonado, Luis Mateo, and Akeel Morris. Dom Smith was 1-for-3 with an RBI, but also committed and error at first base. Casey Delgado's relatively meh season continued, and he now has a 3.56 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP on the year. The BMets have had a relatively rough season, and could use more six run outbursts from their offense.

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

DID NOT PLAY

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (29-29)__________________________________

DOUBLEHEADER GAME 1: COLUMBIA 4, AUGUSTA 3 (Box)

A doubleheader produced two close games, as the Fireflies split the twin billing with the GreenJackets. Columbia had three players named as Sally league all-stars yesterday in David Thompson, Vinny Siena, and P.J. Conlon. The two batters went a combined 0-for-12, and Conlon didn't pitch. Baseball is a funny game. Kevin Canelon had a solid start in game one, while Tyler Badamo was less-than-stellar in game two. Patrick Mazeika didn't play, but Kevin Kaczmarski drove in three and hit two doubles, and Dash Winningham hit a triple. Columbia's now an even .500 on the season.
