*All results from games played on Tuesday, July 12, 2016

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

NO GAME - ALL STAR BREAK

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (39-49)____________________________

NO GAME - ALL STAR BREAK

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (36-32 / 10-9)_________________________

ST. LUCIE 6, DAYTONA 1  (Box)

Behind eight strong innings from starter Ricky Knapp, the Mets cruised to victory in the opener of a series against the Tortugas. All six hits Knapp surrendered were singles and the Tortugas' lone run came on a ground out. Between the second and sixth innings, Knapp retired 14 straight batters. Knapp's ERA now sits at 2.01, which ranks as the best ERA in the FSL among active starting pitchers. Offensively, Tomas Nido and Jhoan Urena led the way. Nido finished a triple shy of the cycle.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (36-34 / 5-14)__________________________

DELMARVA 9, COLUMBIA 4 (Box)

In Gaby Almonte's last start, he went eight innings while yielding three runs. That was a start he'll want to remember after his start last night, where he got thrashed for nine runs on eleven hits. He got through the first inning unscathed after the leadoff man got on. He wasn't so lucky in the second inning when Delmarva sent 12 men to the plate and scored eight times. The Fireflies' bullpen was spotless the rest of the way but the damage had been done.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (13-13)________________________________

BROOKLYN 6, ABERDEEN 2 (Box)

The Cyclones swept the IronBirds and got their record back to the .500 mark. Brooklyn jumped out to an early 2-0 lead when Peter Alonso launched his first career home run. Aberdeen tied the game up in the third but the tie was short-lived as Brooklyn scored twice in the fourth inning on a Jacob Zanon solo home run and a Jay Jabs RBI single. Gabriel Llanes pitched very well over seven innings, striking out seven.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (8-11)__________________________

KINGSPORT 7, BRISTOL 4 (Box)

After a day off, Kingsport came out swinging and scored six times in the first inning. The Mets didn't record their first out of the inning until six batters into the frame. The big hits came on a two-run single from Jose Maria and a bases-clearing double off the bat of Franklin Correa. The Mets tacked on another run in the second on a sac fly and then went scoreless the rest of the way. Jake Simon pitched effectively for Kingsport, striking out eight over his 5.2 innings of work. He gave up two unearned runs and walked three. Bristol had the bases loaded with two outs in the bottom of the ninth after scoring two runs but Ronald Guedez induced a game-ending ground out.

Rookie - GCL Mets (9-7)__________________________

GCL MARLINS 3, GCL METS 1 (Box)

Starter Chase Huchingson only went one inning, thrusting Luis De Los Santos into emergency duty. He gave the Mets a valiant effort, throwing six innings of two-run ball. The two runs were unearned. While the Mets' pitching was effective, the offense was dormant. They managed just three hits. Victor Moscote blasted his first home run to account for the Mets' only run.
