*All results from games played on Sunday, July 31, 2016

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (53-54)

EL PASO 4, LAS VEGAS 0 (BOX)

Robert Gsellman delivered a quality start, but the Las Vegas offense was shut out in a 4-0 loss. Gsellman allowed three runs over six innigs with six strikeouts, an excellent start by PCL standards. However, Dilson Herrera and Eric Campbell had the only hits for the 51s as the offense fell flat. Josh Smoker tossed two scoreless innings of relief and struck out three, while Paul Sewald allowed an ultimately meaningless run to score in the ninth.

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (49-57)

PORTLAND 8, BINGHAMTON 1 (BOX)

Portland blasted Binghamton starter Rainy Lara and the offense was dormant in an 8-1 loss. Lara lasted only four innings, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on six hits and three walks while striking out only two. Dominic Smith had the only RBI for Binghamton, going 1-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts. Phillip Evans started at short in place of the injured Amed Rosario and 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (35-32 / 20-15)

SUSPENDED (RAIN)

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (36-34 / 12-23)

ASHEVILLE 4, COLUMBIA 1

Columbia’s offense could not back a solid effort from Joe Shaw, scoring only once in a 4-1 loss to Asheville. J.C. Rodriguez had the lone RBI for the Fireflies, going 1-for-4 with a double. Eudor Garcia and Vicente Lupo both committed errors. Shaw allowed only three runs in seven innings, but he earned his eighth loss thanks to the lack of run support.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (21-21)

ABERDEEN 1, BROOKLYN 0 (BOX)

Thomas Szapucki was brilliant again, but the Brooklyn offense mustered only two hits in a shutout loss. Szapucki tossed seven innings and allowed only one unearned run, striking out ten and giving up two hits and a walk. Our own Steve Sypa came away quite impressed. Colby Woodmansee and Blake Tiberi had the only hits for the Cyclones.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (15-23)

KINGSPORT 8, GREENEVILLE 5 (BOX)

Kingsport rallied for four runs in the bottom of the eighth, overcoming a 5-4 deficit and topping Greeneville 8-5. Ricardo Cespedes went 2-for-5 with a double, while Jose Miguel Medina went 2-for-3 with a double and a walk. Jake Simon allowed three runs in five innings while Placido Torres allowed another two in his inning of work. Ronald Guedez got the win in relief.

Rookie - GCL Mets (13-17)

GCL METS 6, GCL ASTROS 2 (BOX)

The GCL Mets survived four errors to top the GCL Astros 6-2. Starter Luis De Los Santos allowed two runs, only one of which was earned, over seven innings, striking out six and earning his second win. The GCL Mets had only five hits, but worked nine walks and benefitted from some shoddy defense from the Astros.
