Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (58-67)

ROUND ROCK 10, LAS VEGAS 8 (Box)

Ugly. Las Vegas was up 7-5 at the start of the bottom of the ninth inning until Chase Huchingson surrendered five runs to give Round Rick a 10-7 lead. First baseman Marc Krauss had to come in and clean up the mess and threw one pith to get out of the inning. The 51s did score a run in the ninth to cut the lead to 10-8 but that’s as close as they would come. Offensively, Michael Conforto is playing like a man possessed. The former first round pick went 4-for-4 and is 13-for-19 since his demotion. That’s an astounding .684 clip. He now has two straight four-hit games. After Brandon Nimmo had two homers two nights ago, he took the golden sombrero last night. Starter Robert Gsellman struggled with his control, walking six in six innings but was otherwise serviceable.

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (57-64)

BINGHAMTON 9, NEW HAMPSHIRE 1 (Box)

Behind a career night from Ricky Knapp, the B-Mets snapped their three-game losing streak. Napp punched out eight batters—a career-high in Double-A— over 6.1 innings of one-run ball. Philip Evans recorded his second straight three-hit game to pace the offense. The Mets scored nine runs despite going 4-for-15 with RISP. Three runs came from a bases loaded walk, a passed ball and an RBI groundout. Amed Rosario snapped an 0-for-17 streak that dated back to August 12.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (63-56 / 28-24)

ST. LUCIE 6, FORT MYERS 3 (Box)

Rehabbing Yoenis Cespedes and Asdrubal Cabrera both helped lead the Mets to victory last night. Cespedes and Cabrera played six innings. Starter Casey Delgado picked up his seventh win of the season, tossing 7.2 innings while yielding two earned run and fanning seven. Robert Coles retired the four batters he faced to pick up the save.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (55-67 / 19-33)

ASHEVILLE 7, COLUMBIA 6 (Box)

You might want to shield your eyes for this one. The Fireflies were up 6-3 entering the bottom of the ninth but Asheville scored four runs to walk-off on a wild pitch. Only one out was recorded in the inning. Brutal. The bullpen meltdown overshadows a good offensive output from Columbia.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (30-27)

STATEN ISLAND 4, BROOKLYN 3 (Box)

In the first game after the All-Star Break, Brooklyn was trailing 3-2 entering the top of the ninth. Gene Cone came up clutch with an RBI single to score Darryl Knight, who reached on a single. However, it would be for nought. Gabriel Feliz came on in the bottom of the ninth to preserve the tie and quickly recorded two outs. He then issued a walk and a double to make it second and third with two outs. The next batter singled to win the game.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (W-L)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Rookie - GCL Mets (19-24)

GCL MARLINS 5, GCL METS 2 (Box)

Starter Carlos Hernandez gave up five runs—four earned—in his five innings of work and that was too much for the GCL Mets to overcome.
