Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (42-38)__________________________________

TACOMA 9, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)

I miss the Rafael Montero of old, the one that was a legitimate prospect, not the one pitching Game Scores of 17.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (34-45)____________________________

GAME ONE

BINGHAMTON 10, NEW HAMPSHIRE 4 / 7 (BOX)

Tyler Pill tossed a seven-inning complete game in Game One of yesterday's doubleheader. The Fisher Cats jumped out to a quick lead in the first, but the B-Mets took the lead in the second and continued piling on, scoring five in the third and one apiece in the fourth and fifth. L.J. Mazzilli and Maikis De La Cruz did the heavy lifting, L.J hitting a three-run shot in the third and Maikis hitting a grand slam in the fourth.

GAME TWO

NEW HAMPSHIRE 11, BINGHAMTON 5 / 7 (Box)

Just as handily as the B-Mets won Game One, they lost Game Two, which was a make-up of a rainout all the way from April 7th. Jim Henderson, making his first rehab appearance, pitched the first and wasn't exactly all that great. It took him 27 pitches to notch two outs, walking two and allowing an RBI double. Domingo Tapia replaced him and immediatley allowed a three-run homer, the first home run he has allowed since August 15, 2014. Logan Taylor wasn't much better, getting touched up in the fifth. Phil Evans and Dom Smith did their best to get the B-Mets back in the game, hitting home runs, but a win was simply not to be.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (4-4 / 39-36)_______________________________

ST. LUCIE 6, PALM BEACH 3 (Box)

St. Lucie had a 2-0 lead early, but the Palm Beach Cardinals tied things up in the bottom of the fifth, scoring two runs off of Scarlyn Reyes. St. Lucie quickly reestablished their lead, scoring a run in the top of the sixth, and then broke it open, scoring three in the top of the seventh.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (3-3=6 / 39-40)________________________________

COLUMBIA 2, WEST VIRGINIA 0 (Box)

A crisp, quick minor league game. Columbia scored their first run within minutes of the game starting, with J.C. Rodriguez scoring a Jose Reyes run. He singled, stole second, advanced to third on an error, and scored on a David Thompson groundout. Two innings later, Rodriguez scored a second time, hitting a single, stealing second, and scoring on a Thompson single, the third baseman's 58th RBI in 58 games. Bryce Beeler was solid in his first start this season, blanking the Power over six-plus innings. Tyler Bashlor and Alex Palsha kept West Virginia in check out of the pen, with the latter earning his thirteenth save of the season.

Short-A -€” Brooklyn Cyclones (6-9)__________________________________

CONNECTICUT 5, BROOKLYN 3 / 10 (Box)

Another day, another extra innings game for the Cyclones. The Tigers scored a pair in the top of the third, and a few innings later, Brandon Brosher hit a solo shot and Darryl Knight and RBI single to tie the game at 2-2. Raul Jacobson screwed the pooch in last night's game, allowing three runs in the top of the tenth. The 'clones answered with one run, but were unable to do further damage.

Rookie -€” Kingsport Mets (2-7)__________________________________

BLUEFIELD 15, KINGSPORT 2 (Box)

Kingsport was down by a considerable margin going into the bottom of the fifth, but in that frame, Bluefield put the ballgame to rest, plating eight runs and adding to their 7-0 lead. Jeremy Wolf and Franklin Correa plated runs on a sac fly and force out, respectivley, but those two runs were all Kingsport could manage.

Rookie -€” GCL Mets (3-4)__________________________________

GCL METS 12, GCL ASTROS 3 (Box)

The GCL Mets put the hurt on the GCL Astros, bringing them within a game of the .500 mark. The Astros took the lead early, scoring a pair of runs off of Venezuelan right-hander Luis Silva, but the GCL Mets came roaring back in the bottom of the inning, scoring four of their own. They kept the pressure on all afternoon, scoring another three in the four inning, another two in the fifth, and three more in the seventh. Yeudy Colon allowed the Astros to score a run in the fifth, but it would turn out to only be a blip on the radar.
