Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (49-44)_______________________________________

Kevin Plawecki launched a two-run home run and now has a 149 wRC+ at Triple-A. Paul Sewald finished the game with two perfect innings with three strikeouts.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (41-51)_____________________________________


The Binghamton offense was very productive, but Luis Mateo blew a late lead and the B-Mets lost 7-6 to Hartford. Dominic Smith went 3-for-5 with two RBI and Amed Rosario went 1-for-4 with a walk. Victor Cruzado also had three hits and two RBIs. Knuckleballer Mickey Jannis tossed six innings of three-run ball, with four strikeouts and four walks. Logan Taylor got the loss after allowing a run in the ninth.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (35-32 / 14-9)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 4, TAMPA 1 (Box)

Scarlyn Reyes was excellent for seven innings and got the win in a 4-1 victory over Tampa. Reyes struck out seven and walked one, allowing only one run.

Corey Taylor got the save with a scorless inning, allowing two hits and striking out one.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (36-34 / 6-18)__________________________________

Brandon Brosher stole two bases.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (13-17)_______________________________________


Joel Huertas got shellacked over a brief, two inning starts, and the Brooklyn offense was too quiet to rally in a 4-1 loss to Hudson Valley. College World Series champion Michael Paez lead off and went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts, as did DH Colby Woodmansee. Blake Tiberi was the only Cyclone to record a hit, notching two singles. Justin Dunn allowed his first profesional run in two earnings of work.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (11-12)__________________________


Another brilliant start from Thomas Szapucki lead Kingsport to an 8-1 win over Burlington. Szapucki tossed 7.1 innings, allowed one run, and struck out another nine batters while walking only two. He know has a 47/9 K/BB ratio in 29 innings this season. A promotion seems a matter of when rather than if. Walter Rasquin homered and stole a base, while Jose Medina drove in two with a double.

Rookie - GCL Mets (10-9)__________________________
