Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (46-43)__________________________________


Making his first start in nearly a month- he was placed on the disabled list with a quad injury on June 15- Rob Gsellman wasn't very sharp. Limited to three innings, he gave up five runs on six hits. Still, there were some encouraging numbers there, such as the fact that he threw 42 of 58 pitches for strikes, and his fastball was hitting the mid-90s. Outside of Gsellman's start, nothing particularly exciting happened in the loss save the fact that pretty much every player that was rostered on the Mets this season had a good game, while every player that wasn't did not. Matt Reynolds went 3-5, Michael Conforto went 3-5 with a triple and his third home run, Eric Campbell went 2-4, Kevin Plawecki hit his third home run, and Sean Gilmartin tossed six solid innings in relief of Gsellman. Ty Kelly was the outlier here, but if a player's major league cup of coffee is so unremarkable that you don't even remember it, did it really happen?

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (39-48)____________________________


Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (44-39 / 9-7)_______________________________


With the score tied 1-1 in the bottom of the ninth, right fielder Derek Campbell hit a Domingo Tapia offering over the left field wall to win it all for the Threshers. St. Lucie had just mounted a late comeback bid, scoring a run in the seventh thanks to a John Mora fielder's choice- St. Lucie could have scored further but left the bases loaded- and two more in the eighth on RBI hits by Luis Guillorme and Jhoan Urena, and things were looking up, but a win was simply not meant to be.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (41-46 / 5-12)________________________________


Kevin Kaczmarski had his second straight three hit game- one of them being his second home run of the season- and four other Colaflies logged two hits, but even with all of the offense, Columbia fell to Augusta for the third time in as many games. Chase Ingram did not have a good game at all, allowing eight runs- six earned- over three plus innings. The Columbia bullpen was able to stop the Green Jackets from scoring again, but Augusta did a great job at preventing runs, allowing just three.

Short-A -€” Brooklyn Cyclones (9-13)__________________________________


Staked with a 2-1 lead, sidearmer Adam Atkins gave up four runs, handing the Renegades their eleventh victory of the season. Harol Gonzalez gave up a first inning run but otherwise settled down, pitching four more innings, all shutout. In the bottom of the seventh, third and fourth round draft picks Peter Alonso and Blake Tiberi went back-to-back with extra base hits to score a run, and top prospect Ali Sanchez added an RBI single to give Brooklyn the lead. Atkins came in to pitch in the top of the eighth and hit the very first batter he faced, setting the tone for his meltdown.

Rookie -€” Kingsport Mets (6-10)__________________________________


Kingsport scored early and often, but thanks to some late inning Braves runs, they barely left the field with a win. Every Kingsport hitter except Reed Gamache and Jeremy Wolf logged at least one hit- Ian Strom, Ricardo Cespedes, and Jose Medina the position player each logged two. Max Wotell was strong early on, but started giving up solid contact in the fifth, allowing two earned runs in both innings. Danville continued putting up runs against the Kingsport bullpen, but they kept it together long enough to log the win.

Rookie -€” GCL Mets (7-6)__________________________________
