Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (45-40)________________________________

SALT LAKE 12, LAS VEGAS 5 (Box)

On the same day that the Mets announce Matt Harvey is headed to the disabled list, potentially creating an opening for Rafael Montero to help out the club, Montero got obliterated to the tune of ten runs in just three innings. Over his last eight starts, Montero has yet to give up fewer than four runs. His season ERA now sits at an unsightly 7.20. The lone bright spot for the 51s in this game was Dilson Herrera. He had sat out the past six games with a tight hamstring, but he returned with a bang, mashing his 12th home run of the season. Herrera was pulled for a pinch-runner in the seventh inning but it was not due to his hamstring.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (37-48)____________________________

BINGHAMTON 11, HARTFORD 5  (Box)

The B-Mets' offense erupted for 11 runs on 15 hits to blow out the Yard Goats. Catcher Xorge Carrillo led the offensive charge, hitting a grand slam in the third inning to give the Mets a lead they would not relinquish. Starter Tyler Pill gave up a whopping ten hits in six innings of work but had a large margin of error given the big lead he was staked to. Pill won his 22nd career game, the second most in Binghamton Mets franchise history.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (42-38 / 7-6)__________________________

ST. LUCIE 4, FT. MYERS 3 (Box)

Wuilmer Beccera delivered a couple two-RBI hits to help lead the Mets past Fort Myers after being blown out 14-0 two nights ago. Beccera's two-out double in the seventh inning to give St. Lucie a 4-0 lead proved to be the game-winning hit. The Miracle put up a three spot in the seventh inning on a three-run home run but that's as close as they would come. Scarlyn Reyes was on cruise control through six innings before running into trouble in the seventh.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (41-43 / 5-9)__________________________

COLUMBIA 4, CHARLESTON 1 (Box)

The Fireflies were down 1-0 entering the seventh inning but came from behind to win the series against the RiverDogs. With two outs in the seventh, Kevin Kaczmarski coaxed a walk. Jeff Diehl then found the gap to chase Kaczmarski home to tie the game up. The Fireflies took the lead with three runs in the eighth inning. Starter Bryce Beeker dazzled in his first home start with seven innings of one-run ball with five strikeouts.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (9-11)________________________________

BATAVIA 15, BROOKLYN 2 (Box)

Not much to see here. The Cyclones' pitching was atrocious, starting with Erik Monoah who gave up nine runs over 3.1 innings. Only one of the five Cyclones pitchers used did not give up a run on the night. The offense was dormant, mustering only three singles. Just an ugly loss.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (4-9)__________________________

POSTPONED (RAIN)


Rookie - GCL Mets (6-5)__________________________

GCL ASTROS, GCL METS 1 (Box)

Not much to see here either. Luis De Los Santos was not great in his five innings of work, yielding five runs--three earned--while striking out six. Emmanuel Berihuete didn't do much to keep the GCL Astros at bay, giving up three runs in his two innings of work. The offense managed three hits with only one for extra bases.

Star of the Night

Dilson Herrera

Goat of the Night

Rafael Montero
