*All results from games played on Monday, July 4, 2015

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (44-39)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 17, SALT LAKE 6 (Box)

The 51s scored 11 runs inthe sixth as they romped Salt Lake 17-6. Michael Conforto continued to hit well, going 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, and a walk, though he did strike out twice. Gavin Cecchini went 2-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base. Sean Gilmartin was solid over six innings, and Jeff Walters finished the game with a clean inning. Zach Thornton struggled in his two-inning stint, though. Johnny Monell hit a home run, and T.J. Rivera launched a grand slam.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (36-47)_____________________________________

HARTFORD 3, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)

Albert Baldonado gave up two late runs to allow Hartford to win 3-1. Jose Reyes played the whole game at third again and went hitless in his what appears to be his last game in the minors. Amed Rosario went 2-for-4 with a double, as he continues his strong hitting at Double-A. Knuckleballer Mickey Jannis tossed seven excellent innings with six strikeouts.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (34-32 / 7-5)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 3, FORT MYERS 1 (Box)

St. Lucie topped Fort Myers thanks to another strong start from lefty P.J. Conlon. Conlon tossed seven innings of one run ball with eight strikeouts, and Kelly Secrest and Corey Taylor closed out the game with two scoreless innings. Champ Stuart, Tomas Nido, and Jhoan Urena each had an RBI, while Luis Guillorme stole two bases despite not recording a hit in three at-bats. Wuilmer Becerra went hitless with a strikeout.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (36-34 / 3-7)__________________________________

CHARLESTON 3, COLUMBIA 1 (Box)

Charleston topped Columbia 3-1 as the Fireflies' offense went quiet yet again. Chase Ingram departed after 4.1 innings, allowing all three runs, only two of which were earned. Johnny Magliozzi and Seth Davis finished with 4.2 scoreless innings, but Vincente Lupo mustered the only RBI for Columbia. David Thompson was the only Firefly with more than one hit, going 2-for-4 with a pair of singles.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (8-10)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 5, BATAVIA 1 (Box)

The Cyclones got excellent performances from two exciting pitchers in a 5-1 win over Batavia. Merandy Gonzalez started and tossed seven innings of one-run ball with nine strikeouts, allowing only two hits. First-round pick Justin Dunn followed that up with two scoreless innings. He struck out two in his professional debut, and he will be limited to one- or two-inning appearances over the next few weeks. Colby Woodmansee hit a two-run home run and stole a base, both his first as a pro, while Ali Sanchez stayed hot with two more hits, though he did commit an error.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (4-8)__________________________

KINGSPORT 7, GREENEVILLE 3 (Box)

Thomas Szapucki was stupendous again and a late five-run rally pushed Kingsport past Greeneville, 7-3. Szapucki struck out eleven over six innings, walked none, and allowed four hits and two runs. Going out on a bit of limb, he's probably too good for Kingsport given his 0.54 ERA and 30 strikeouts against four walks in 16.2 innings. Ricardo Cespedes went 1-for-4 with a walk and a stolen base.

Rookie - GCL Mets (5-4)__________________________

GCL METS 4, GCL NATIONALS 3 (Box)

Yet another team won with a late rally, as the GCL Mets scored twice in the eighth to overcome a one run deficit. Ezequiel Zabaleta was mediocre over six innings, allowing three runs on seven hits and a walk, but the bullpen combo of Joe Napolitano and Yeudy Colon combined for three scoreless innings. Oliver Pascual drove the offense with a 2-for-4 performance with a double and two RBI.
