Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (49-47)___________________________________


Under acting manager Jack Voight, who is the hitting coach, the 51s fell for the third-straight game to the Storm Chasers. Wally Backman is serving a two-game suspension for a tirade last weekend. The 51s offense was held to two runs by the Storm Chasers' pitching staff. The defense committed three errors, which led to four unearned runs. Gavin Cecchini was charged with his 28th error of the season. Starter Sean Gilmartin was serviceable for six innings as he was only charged with an earned run.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (44-51)_______________________________


The Mets' offense exploded for seven runs on six hits in the fifth inning to propel them to their third series sweep of 2016. Dom Smith blasted a two-run home run as part of the seven run inning. It was his 12th home run of the year. Rafael Montero picked up his first win in Binghamton since 2013. It wasn't the prettiest of starts for Montero, as he walked a career-high six batters but he was able to limit the damage. He'll certainly take it after the horrendous starts he posted in Las Vegas.
Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (35-32 / 17-12)__________________________

TAMPA 6, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)

The Mets offense was nowhere to be found in this one. St. Lucie managed only two hits and both of those came off the bat of David Thompson, both singles. Starter P.J. Conlon spun five innings of one-run ball with seven strikeouts. The lefty needed 93 pitches to get through five so he was not long for this game. Domingo Tapia was blasted for four runs--three earned--in his one inning of relief to surely put this game out of reach. The Mets finished their homestand at 6-2.
Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (36-34 / 6-19)____________________________


A missed catch by first baseman Dash Winningham on catcher Brandon Brosher's throw on a called third strike allowed Hagerstown to tally two unearned runs in the first inning. The Suns went up 4-0 after four innings before Columbia started to chip away. A Vincente Lupo RBI single to score Enmanuel Zabala made it 4-1. Tucker Tharp hit a sacrifice fly to make it a 4-2 game to knock in Zabala, who led off the seventh with his third hit of the game and promptly stole second. He advanced to third when the throw to second went into center field. Zabala recorded his first three-hit game of the season.
SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (14-18)__________________________________


The Cyclones kick-off a three-game home series against the Aberdeen IronPigs tonight.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (12-14)__________________________


After falling behind 1-0 after the first inning, Kingsport answered right back with three runs in the second, highlighted by a two-run home run off the bat of Raphael Ramirez, his first of the season. The Mets would score twice in the third inning and once in the eighth to take a commanding 6-1 lead. However, Elizabethton would put a score into the Mets, as they scored three in the eighth to make it 6-4. The Twins had the tying run 90-feet away with two outs but Adrian Almeida got a strikeout to end the ballgame.
Rookie - GCL Mets (11-11)__________________________


The Mets lost in extra innings after the Cardinals scored four unanswered runs in the top half of the tenth. Desmond Lindsay contributed two hits in the loss.
