*All results from games played on Thursday, August 11, 2016

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (57-62)

NO GAME (SCHEDULED DAY OFF)

Days off are always welcome, especially when they come on the heels of a sweep. The 51s return to Cashman Field Friday night to begin a series against the New Orleans Zephyrs.

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (54-61)

CANCELLED (RAIN)

If the rains come out there can be no baseball, but our Eastern League heroes travel down I-81 for a weekend series against the Harrisburg Senators.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (61-51 / 26-19)

BRADENTON 10, ST. LUCIE 7 (Box)

Losing a five-run lead is never optimal baseball, but it can be all the more excruciating when four errors and eight walks are the catalyst behind it. St. Lucie waxed Marauder starter Austin Coley and took a 5-0 lead in the second inning, yet it wasn’t long before an erratic Chris Flexen and the equally erratic defense surrendered the lead and the game was tied at five. Domingo Tapia then had a meltdown sixth inning, and a tie game became an insurmountable five-run deficit. Patrick Biondi, David Thompson, and Leidner Ricardo each had two hits to aid the offense.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (53-64 / 17-30)

COLUMBIA 8, GREENSBORO 0 (Box)

Super Joe Shaw threw six shutout innings and Tyler Moore was for 3-for-4 with three RBI and a double, pacing the Colaflies to an 8-0 shellacking of the Greensboro Grasshoppers last night.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (28-25)

BROOKLYN 7, VERMONT 4 (Box)

One number that was crucial to the Cyclones victory last night: 12. It was the number of walks they drew from Vermont pitching, and how many Lake Monsters they struck out in the game. Justin Dunn threw three dominant innings to start the game, and Nick Sergakis was a thorn all night with four walks, two runs, and a stolen base. Jose Reyes in his rehab stint batted leadoff and made it very clear what happens when major leaguers play against short-season A teams with two walks, two stolen bases, and a run.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (17-31)

ELIZABETHTON 5, KINGSPORT 2 (Box)

Nothing went right for the K-Mets in this one, as very tall Twins starter Alex Schick shut down the offense for six innings while Jordan Humphreys was tagged for five runs on eight hits in his six innings of work. Jeremy Wolf did go 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in an effort to catalyze the offense.

Rookie - GCL Mets (16-22)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Hey, these reports go quickly when there’s rainouts and days off! The GCL Mets are back in action today against the Marlins at noon.

Star of the Night

David Thompson (errors aside)

Goat of the Night

Domingo Tapia (eradicate meltdowns, please)
