Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52-51)_________________________________

LAS VEGAS 6, FRESNO 3 (Box)

The 51s blasted three home runs in a win that boosted them one game over .500 on the season. Travis Taijeron now has 15 home runs on the season, second on the team to Johnny Monell. Former major league reliever Josh Zeid pitched well in his seven innings of work, allowing just one run on three hits with four strikeouts. Over Zeid's last 15 innings, he has given up just one run. Jeff Walters tried to make things interesting in the ninth inning with a five-run lead, giving up a two-run home run to Fresno, but he buckled down to retire the side.

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

READING 11, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

It just wasn't a good day to be a knuckleball pitcher. On the same day that R.A. Dickey got blasted by the Padres, Mickey Jannis lasted just three innings and gave up four runs—three earned—on five hits. The Fightin Phils' offensive barrage continued against the Mets' bullpen after Jannis departed. Every Mets pitcher surrendered at least one run in the game.
The Mets did have opportunities to get back into the game but squandered numerous opportunities. They were 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position. Dom Smith was pulled from this game, leaving many to speculate whether a trade was in the works, but it turned out to be nothing.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (53-46 / 18-14)________________________

BRADENTON 4, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)

It was a scoreless game through 5.2 innings until Alex Palsha unraveled. He got two quick outs before allowing a single. Back-to-back RBI doubles made it a 2-0 game. After a walk, a wild pitch, and a stolen base, Palsha gave up a two-run single. This is a game Palsha will want to forget as quickly as possible. The Mets managed just two hits off Bradenton's starter and both were singles off the bat of Kevin Kaczmarski. Of injury note, Wuilmer Beccera is done for the foreseeable future after undergoing labrum surgery.

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

The Fireflies kick-off a home series against the Asheville Tourists tonight.

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

The Cyclones take to the road to start a series against the Vermont Lake Monsters tonight.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (13-20)__________________________

BLUEFIELD 6, KINGSPORT 4 (Box)

The defense behind starter Adonis Uceta did him no favors as he was charged with six runs but only one earned over four innings. Uceta struck out eight batters in only four innings. Kingsport went a measly 2-for-13 with RISP to eliminate any chance of getting back in the game.

Rookie - GCL Mets (11-14)__________________________

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

The GCL Mets take on the GCL Marlins for an afternoon game today.
