Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (53-51)_________________________________

GAME ONE: LAS VEGAS 6, FRESNO 5 F/7 (Box)

Johnny Monell may be the quintessential 4A player, but he's our damn 4A player. Mr. Monell's seventeenth home run of the season, which followed a T.J. Rivera home run, helped the 51s sink the Grizzies in the first game of the doubleheader, 6-5. Both Las Vegas's Gabriel Ynoa and Fresno's Mike Hauschild were ineffective in their starts, and Josh Edgin got the win despite not being all that effective and nearly losing a 6-2 lead.

GAME TWO: FRESNO 2, LAS VEGAS 1 F/7 (Box)

I personally am a fan of how minor league doubleheaders are only seven innings per game, but if you allow a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth to break a scoreless tie it usually stunts your chances of winning severely. Duane Below pitched a complete game but allowed a two-run home run to Jon Kemmer in the sixth to take the loss. Las Vegas did score a run after two consecutive hits from Kevin Plawecki and T.J. Rivera to start the seventh, but the 51s stranded Rivera after Nevin Ashley and Travis Taijeron each struck out swinging and Matt Reynolds grounded into a fielder's choice to end the game.
Double-A - Binghamton Mets (48-54)____________________________

PORTLAND 7, BINGHAMTON 0 (Box)

After getting throttled Wednesday night by the team with the best record in Minor League Baseball, the B-Mets got throttled last night by one of the worst teams in the minors last night. Tyler Pill was hit early and often by the Sea Dogs, allowing five runs in five innings. Bingo wasn't without their chances on the night, but they managed to leave nine men on base and go 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position. If you want a silver lining for this affair, L.J. Mazzilli drew three walks.
Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (53-47 / 18-15)________________________

BRADENTON 5, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

Scarlyn Reyes was really good last night, throwing 6.1 innings of shutout ball with 10 strikeouts. Ben Griset was the polar opposite of really good last night, allowing four runs in his inning of relief as the Mets fell to the Marauders 5-1. The Mets did take the lead in the fourth inning on a solo home run from Michael Katz, but that was all the scoring they would provide on the night. Despite the poor outing mentioned above, Griset preserved the 1-0 lead into the eighth inning before it all came undone with the pitcher's throwing error the catalyst for two unearned runs.
Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (47-55 / 11-21)_________________________

COLUMBIA 3, ASHEVILLE 2  F/10 (Box)

There have not been a lot of happy moments for the Colaflies in the second half of the season, but JC Rodriguez's bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the tenth provided one, and it defeated the Asheville Tourists last night. Kevin Canelon pitched six solid innings to merit a no-decision, and Jimmy Duff took the win after throwing two scoreless innings in relief.
SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (20-19)_______________________________

BROOKLYN 5, VERMONT 3 (Box)

The Cyclones knocked out Oakland first-rounder A.J. Puk in the third inning, while Harol Gonzalez had another sterling performance last night in Vermont. Brooklyn reliever Gary Cornish made the game interesting in the eighth, but he struck out the potential tying run and added a clean ninth to clinch the Brooklyn victory. Peter Alonso had a night at the plate with two hits, runs, and RBI apiece.
Rookie - Kingsport Mets (13-21)__________________________

JOHNSON CITY 6, KINGSPORT 2 F/5 (Box)

This game ended early due to some hard Tennessee rain, but the K-Mets were probably glad it ended when it did. Despite taking a 2-0 lead in the first inning, Kingsport starter Darwin Ramos gave it back and then some by allowing six runs in 3.1 innings. Much like their highly aggravating parent team, the Cardinals went 3-for-10 with runners in scoring position and were able to steal three bases in only four innings.
Rookie - GCL Mets (11-14)__________________________

GCL MARLINS 8, GCL METS 1 (Box)

Take a deep breath and say this with me: "It's only GCL games, they don't even charge admission so mistakes are fine." Good job. Anthony Dirocie had two hits, a stolen base, and an outfield assist to put you in a state of positive zen for the morning.
