*All results from games played on Sunday, July 3, 2016

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (43-39)_______________________________________


The 51s rallied late to overcome a four-run deficit and defeat the Tacoma Rainiers. Las Vegas scored six runs in the seventh, starting with a two-run single from Michael Conforto, who went 2-for-5. Travis Taijeron launched his 13th home run of the year during a four-hit day, while Gavin Cecchini walked thrice as a DH. Dilson Herrera remained out of the lineup with a hamstring issue. Gabriel Ynoa was shaky over 5.1 innings, but Paul Sewald, Josh Edgin, and Chasen Bradford allowed only one run over the remainder of the game.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (36-46)_____________________________________


Binghamton's pitching was excellent and the offense supplied just enough to top New Hampshire 3-1. Jim Henderson made a one-inning start and surrendered the only run, striking out one and walking one. Josh Zeid and David Roseboom followed with eight shutout innings. Dominic Smith went 1-for-4 with a double, and Jose Reyes played nine innings at third base while walking twice, going 1-for-2, and stealing a base.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (34-32 / 5-5)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 4, PALM BEACH 2 / 10 (Box)

Despite blowing a late lead, St. Lucie was able to score two runs in the tenth to top Palm Beach 4-2. Andrew Church pitched 6.2 strong innings before allowing an unearned run in the seventh. That run scored against Paul Paez, who was charged with a blown save. Wuilmer Becerra went 2-for-5 with an RBI, while Luis Guillorme had a double, but committed an error.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (36-34 / 3-8)__________________________________


The Fireflies' offense was totally quiet as the Fireflies were shut out by West Virginia. Joe Shaw was solid over seven innings, allowing four runs, three earned. No Fireflies had any extra base hits, and Luis Ortega was the only Firefly with two hits. Milton Ramos went hitless.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (7-10)_______________________________________


Down 4-0 in the second, Brooklyn scored five unanswered runs over the remainder of the game to top the Cyclones 5-4. Harol Gonzalez had a very odd start, striking out ten over 4.2 innings but allowing four runs. Dillon Becker, Gary Cornish, Austin McGeorge, and Taylor Henry did not allow a run after relieving Gonzalez. Ali Sanchez made his return to the lineup and had three hits, including a double. Third-round pick Blake Tiberi went 1-for-4 with a triple, while Colby Woodmansee went hitless in three at-bats.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (3-8)__________________________


Max Wotell tossed six scoreless innings and the Kingsport offense exploded in an 11-0 win over Greeneville. Wotell allowed four hits, walked none, and struck out five. Jose Medina and Dionis Rodriguez both had two hits and a home run, while Jose Maria went 3-for-5 with two doubles.

Rookie - GCL Mets (4-4)__________________________

GCL METS 3, GCL MARLINS 2 / 13 (Box)

The GCL Mets rallied back from a 2-0 hole to tie the game and win in extras over the GCL Marlins. Despite three errors, the five GCL Mets pitchers did not allow a run after the fourth inning. Kenneth Bautista drove in the winning run with a walk-off sacrifice fly to score Oliver Pascual.
