*All results from games played on Friday, August 19, 2016

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (59-67)

ROUND ROCK 3, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)

Three solo home runs doomed Duane Below, and the 51s offense didn’t do anyone any favors by scoring only one run.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (58-66)

PORTLAND 3, BINGHAMTON 0 (Box)

Starter Josh Zeid wasn’t bad, but he wasn’t exactly good, either. He allowed three runs in five-plus innings, which isn’t the best, but he did his part and kept Binghamton in the game. The B-Mets bats, on the other hand, did not do their part. Portland starter Mitch Atkins kept them off-balance for seven innings, striking out nine. He allowed three hits- two singles to Phil Evans and one to Dom Smith- and hit Xorge Carillo. Evans logged another hit off of reliever Jake Drehoff in the eighth, and Victor Cruzado drew a walk against Luis Ysla in the ninth, but nothing came of either baserunner.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (64-57 / 29-25)

ST. LUCIE 7, PALM BEACH 3 (Box)

Knuckleballer Mickey Jannis was cromulent, allowing three runs on seven hits over five innings, but the bullpen really shone, combining for four perfect innings. St. Lucie scored first, plating a run in the top of the first, and added on, scoring two in the second. The Cardinals scored two of their of their own off of Jannis in the bottom of the second, and another in the third, tying things at three apiece. Lednier Ricardo the tie in the fourth with a two-run double to give St. Lucie the lead once again, and Patrick Biondi added another RBI to give them a 6-3 lead. Cardinals catcher Steve Bean led off the bottom of the fourth with a single, but was thrown out by John Mora trying to stretch it into a double. From there, Palm Beach would not get another man on base. Jannis worked a 1-2-3 fifth, Kelly Secrest threw three perfect innings, and Ty Bashlor set the side down in order in the ninth to end the game.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (55-68 / 19-34)

SUSPENDED (RAIN)

Short-A – Brooklyn Cyclones (31-27)

STATEN ISLAND 4, BROOKLYN 1 (Box)

Blake Tiberi got the Cyclones on the board first with a solo home run in the second- his first professional home run- but Staten Island quickly got that run back, plating a run in the bottom of the third. He who giveth also taketh away, as Tiberi committed a fielding error in the fifth that contributed to two Staten Island runs coming home. The Baby Bombers tacked on one more insurance run in the sixth, but the additional run would be of no consequence as the bullpen continued Simon De La Rosa’s work of keeping the Cyclones off the board.

Rookie – Kingsport Mets (19-36)

PRINCETON 11, KINGSPORT 6 (Box)

Kingsport scored four runs in the top of the first, and things were looking good, but Princeton chipped away, then tied it, then ran away with the game.

Rookie – GCL Mets (20-25)

GCL METS 2, GCL CARDINALS 1 / 9 (Box)

GAME TWO

GCL CARDINALS 2, GCL METS 0 / 7 (Box)
