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

FRESNO 1, LAS VEGAS 0 (Box)

The Grizzlies needed only 105 pitches to shut out the 51s last night at Chukchansi Park. Robert Gsellman and Josh Edgin were each outstanding, yet the 51s' offense sputtered the entire night with only two hits. Both of the hits came in the fourth inning, giving the 51s runners on second and third with one out, but Johnny Monell and Travis Taijeron each struck out to end the inning.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (48-53)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 5, READING 2 (Box)

The B-Mets cooled off the Eastern League leading Fightin' Phils with a 5-2 victory in Reading last night. Victor Cruzado and Colton Plaia were the offensive studs last night, each hitting home runs while collecting two and three hits, respectively. Bingo pitching was quite good, with Tim Peterson's rough inning of relief the only blemish on an otherwise excellent night for our Eastern League heroes.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (53-45 / 18-13)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 6, BRADENTON 3 (Box)

The Mets rallied for five runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, propelling them to a 6-3 three victory over the Marauders. St. Lucie was cruising with a 1-0 lead before a John Mora error in the seventh led to two unearned runs on Paul Paez's docket. Paez then allowed an earned run of his own the eighth to put the Mets in a 3-0 hole. However, the offense picked him up in the bottom of the frame, with David Thompson's two-run single proving to be the eventual game-winning hit. Tomas Nido also had 2 RBI, and he continued his torrid second half with two more hits.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (46-55 / 10-21)__________________________________

COLUMBIA 3, LEXINGTON 2 F/10 (Box)

The Fireflies struck out 13 times and only had two hits, yet they won this game in extra innings last night. Columbia could have won without extras, but Tyler Bashlor and Johnny Magliozzi conspired to surrender a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the ninth. Baseball is a funny game sometimes.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (19-19)_______________________________________

GAME ONE: BROOKLYN 2, STATEN ISLAND 1 F/7 (Box)

Colby Woodmansee's double broke a 1-1 tie in the bottom of the sixth, and Erik Manoah pitched six innings to help sink Brooklyn's cross-borough rivals during the first game of the doubleheader.

GAME TWO: BROOKLYN 3, STATEN ISLAND 2 F/8 (Box)

Peter Alonso's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the eighth game the Cyclones a 3-2 victory and a sweep yesterday's doubleheader. Down to their last out in the seventh, the Cyclones rallied to tie the game at 2-2 as Nick Sergakis scampered home on a throwing error. Gabriel Llanes got the victory despite blowing a save opportunity in the top of the seventh.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (13-19)__________________________

BLUEFIELD 5, KINGSPORT 4 (Box)

The Blue Jays defeated the K-Mets despite getting only three hits. Chris Viall allowed four runs on one hit during his 0.1 inning start, and the Kingsport bullpen did hold Bluefield hitless over the final 7.2 innings, but the early 5-1 deficit was too much to overcome.

Rookie - GCL Mets (11-14)__________________________

GCL ASTROS 4, GCL METS 3 (Box)

The Astros won the game in the bottom of the ninth with a single against Yeudy Colon.
