Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (57-63)


Rob Gsellman was perfectly cromulent last night, which in Las Vegas is pretty decent. He looked good over the first three innings of the game, allowing just a lead-off single that was erased in a double play, while getting three swinging strikeouts and four weak groundouts, two to himself and two to L.J. Mazzilli. He led off the fourth with a pair of doubles and the free passes came back to bite him, as a double and a single later, he found himself down 3-0. The 51s bailed Gsellman out, scoring a run in the fourth, three in the sixth, and one in the seventh, but the bullpen couldn’t keep a lid on the Zephyrs, as the rehabbing Jim Henderson allowed three runs to make it a 6-5 ballgame in favor of New Orleans.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (54-61)


Binghamton scored seven runs for themselves, but in reality scored nine. In the first, Amed Rosario launched a solo home run to give the B-Mets the lead and a Rickey Knapp uncorked a wild pitch to allow the Senators to tie things 1-1. In the fourth, after allowing a single, Knapp balked, followed that with another wild pitch, and Colton Plaia let the ball get by him, allowing the Senators to take the lead. In the seventh, Binghamton retook the lead by sending ten men to the plate, scoring six runs. Binghamton scored one more run for the Senators in the eighth, when Plaia allowed another ball to get by him for a run.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (61-52 / 26-20)


St. Lucie dropped another one to the Bradenton Marauders and are now 0-8 against them this season. The Marauders scored in the bottom of the first, but John Mora and Vinny Siena both drove in a run apiece, giving St. Lucie the lead. Their lead wouldn’t last long, as Casey Delgado allowed two runs in the fourth, and the bullpen four more in later innings.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (53-65 / 17-31)


The Colaflies fell just short, ending the night with their third one-run loss this month. The Grasshoppers scored three runs in the top of the sixth, but Columbia came right back in the bottom of the inning when Milton Ramos ripped a double for two runs. His hit would wind up being the Fireflies’ last hit, as Trey Lambert settled down in his next inning of work and Marcus Crescentini shut down the offense for his two innings.

Short-A – Brooklyn Cyclones (28-25)


Thomas Szapucki is mortal after all. The 20-year-old from Toms River walked three, hit two batters, and allowed four earned runs over five-plus innings, bumping his season ERA with the Cyclones from a 1.02 to a 2.35. Despite the runs, Szapucki limited the Black Bears to three hits and struck out ten; I’ll take that every time from the young lefty, especially when you consider that he did all of that while nursing a sore back. But, despite notching double-digit strikeouts in his third straight outing- the first pitcher to do so in Brooklyn Cyclone history- the southpaw is almost something of an afterthought in this game. Desmond Lindsay, drafted a few rounds before Szapucki, had the game of his young career. Driving in seven- tying the Brooklyn Cyclones single game record- Lindsay notched a single, double, and home run, falling just a triple shy of the cycle. With three home runs and three doubles in thirty-nine at-bats, the young outfielder is beginning showing the power potential he only hinted at last season.

Rookie – Kingsport Mets (17-32)


After the Twins took a commanding 4-0 lead early, the Kingsport Mets were able to make things close, plating three runs in the sixth, but the Elizabethton bullpen held.

Rookie – GCL Mets (17-23)
