*All results from games played on Wednesday, August 24, 2016

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (62-70)

LAS VEGAS 9, SALT LAKE 2 (Box)

Rainy Lara allowed an early first inning run in his 2016 Las Vegas debut but settled in from there, tossing 5.1 innings of two-run ball to pick up the win. The 51s provided plenty of offense behind him with six starters recording multiple hit games. Vegas cranked out 18 hits and went 7-for-16 with RISP. Michael Conforto did not draw the start against the lefty Bees’ starting pitcher.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (60-68)

HARTFORD 11, BINGHAMTON 4 (Box)

It was an ugly fifth inning for Binghamton, as Hartford sent 11 men to the plate, pushing across six runs on seven hits. Paul Paez took the brunt of it on the mound after Kevin McGowan lasted three innings. The B-Mets scored four runs in the seventh with two runs coming on back-to-back bases loaded walks.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (66-58 / 31-26)

ST. LUCIE 11, CHARLOTTE 7 (Box)

David Thompson put the team on his back and carried them to a dramatic come-from-behind win. St. Lucie was down 7-3 at the beginning of the seventh inning when a solo home run from Jhoan Urena cut the deficit to 7-4. Later in the inning, with runners on the corners, Thompson smacked a two-run double and then came around to score the tying run on an errant throw. Patrick Biondi untied the game with an RBI single in the eighth inning with another run scoring on a throwing error to make it 9-7. Thompson put the game out of reach with a two-run bomb to give the Mets a 11-7 lead.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (60-69 / 24-35)

CHARLESTON 4, COLUMBIA 1 (Box)

Dash Winningham tied the game at one in the seventh inning with his fourth home run in the last six days but Charleston came roaring back with three runs and never looked back. Starter Andrew Church yielded a run in the first inning and then went on cruise control from the second to the sixth. He ended up giving up four runs—three earned—over his seven innings of work. Luis De Los Santos pitched a scoreless inning in his Fireflies debut.

Short-A – Brooklyn Cyclones (32-32)

MAHONING VALLEY 6, BROOKLYN 5 (Box)

After Justin Dunn got knocked around for five runs—three earned—in three innings during his last start, Dunn spun three scoreless innings last night. He punched out five batters while allowing just one hit and walking one. He was the only Cyclones pitcher to not give up a run. Dunn now has a 1.50 ERA in 24 innings. Brooklyn had a 5-4 lead with Alejandro Castro on to close it in the ninth but he imploded and gave Mahoning Valley a 6-5 lead. Desmond Lindsay added his fourth home run of the season in the heartbreaking loss.

Rookie – Kingsport Mets (21-39)

KINGSPORT 4, PRINCETON 2 (Box)

Jordan Humphreys continued his dominance of Princeton with six innings of one-run ball while fanning nine batters. On August 18 against Princeton, Humphreys fired seven innings, giving up two runs with 10 strikeouts. Safe to say, Princeton is sick of Jordan Humphreys. He wasn’t going to get a win for his great effort until Cecilio Aybar cleared the bases with a double in the seventh inning. Kingsport sent eight men to the plate during their four-run seventh.

Rookie – GCL Mets (22-27)

GCL METS, GCL CARDINALS
