Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (42-39)__________________________________

TACOMA 9, LAS VEGAS 2 (Box)

Duane Below had a blow up inning, allowing five runs in the third, but all night the 51s allowed Tacoma to add on a little here and add on a little there. Las Vegas, on the other hand, was able to manage two runs off of starter Donn Roach, but were not able to score further runs.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (35-46)____________________________

GAME ONE

BINGHAMTON 9, NEW HAMPSHIRE 2 / 7 (Box)

Jose Reyes logged an extra base hit. Amed Rosario walked twice. Dom Smith went 4-4 with two home runs, numbers nine and ten- and, just to stir the pot, the homers came off of Jeremy Gabryszwski, a righty with a low arm slot that throws 88-90 (dick highTM). Matt Oberste hit two home runs as well, numbers five and six. Rickey Knapp tossed a seven-inning shortened complete game. Why can't Mets-affiliated teams play like this every day?

GAME TWO

NEW HAMPSHIRE 12, BINGHAMTON 5 / 7 (Box)

History repeats itself, as Binghamton lost game two in convincing fashion, much like on Friday. Recent independent signee Tyler Herron did not pitch well. Saying he didn't pitch well, honestly, is an understatement; I didn't know a -1 Game Score was possible. The offense wasn't completely dead, but Herron simply dug a hole too deep to dig out of.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (4-5 / 39-37)_______________________________

PALM BEACH 4, ST. LUCIE 2 (Box)

A big fifth inning gave Palm Beach the edge in their eventual 4-2 win over St. Lucie. All four runs came on five hits off of reliever Jimmy Duff, who faced ten batters in the inning. Tomas Nido hit the first pitch of the sixth inning for his fifth homer of the season, cutting the Cardinals' lead to 4-2, but his homer was the last run that St. Lucie would score for the evening.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (3-7 / 39-41)________________________________

WEST VIRGINIA 7, COLUMBIA 6 (Box)

It was a back-and-forth affair, but the Power came out on top. The Colaflies took the lead in the top of the ninth on a Luis Ortega single that scored Kevin Kaczmarski, but Witt Haggard was unable to hold the lead. Pitching in the bottom of the inning, his second inning of work, he allowed back-to-back solo home runs to allow West Virginia to tie things up and then walk off.

Short-A -€” Brooklyn Cyclones (6-10)__________________________________

CONNECTICUT 5, BROOKLYN 4 (Box)

The Cyclones came roaring out of the gate, plating four runs in the bottom of the first off of Kyle Funkhauser, but Gabriel Llanes was unable to hold it, immediately surrendering four runs of his own in the top of the second. They would score again in the top of the fifth, and that would be the deciding run, as Brooklyn was unable to get much else going against the three Tigers pitchers that replaced Funkhauser after his poor first inning.

Rookie -€” Kingsport Mets (2-8)__________________________________

GREENEVILLE 6, KINGSPORT 2 (Box)

Kingsport and Greeneville were neck and neck for most of the ballgame, until starter Adonis Uceta gave up a pair of runs in the fourth and fifth. Kingsport plated a pair of runs in the eighth, but the Astros did as well, maintaining their four-run lead until the game ended.

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