Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (55-56)

FRESNO 5, LAS VEGAS 3  F/11 (Box)

This game was a bit of a back-and-forth affair in the early stages. The Grizzlies took an early 2-0 lead on a home run by Colin Moran, a former first-round pick of the Miami Marlins. Las Vegas tied the game up on a two-run single off the bat of Roger Bernadina. Jon Singleton gave the Grizzlies the lead back with a solo shot, but Eric Campbell blasted a solo home run of his own to tie the game at three and force free baseball. A Eric Campbell fielding error in the 11th led to the two unearned runs that Josh Smoker allowed to give Fresno the lead for good.

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (50-59)


The Mets dropped their sixth game in their last eight overall. The B-Mets could not overcome a four-run second inning that saw Harrisburg send nine men to the plate. The offense managed six hits with just one for extra bases. Three of those six hits came from Dom Smith, who picked up his 30th multi-hit game of the season. Binghamton loaded the bases in the seventh inning but came away with just one run on a sacrifice fly, much like their major league affiliate.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (56-49 / 21-17)


The St. Lucie offense was stymied in this one and lost ownership of first place. The Mets did have two chances to tie this ballgame up but whiffed on both. With runners on first and second with one out in the second inning, a ground out and a strikeout ended the threat. Then in the ninth inning, St. Lucie had first and second once with two outs but Jhoan Urena struck out to end the game. Josh Prevost pitched well outside of a hiccup in the fourth inning and managed to throw six innings of two-run ball.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (49-59 /13-25)


Starter Kevin Canelon needed to be perfect on a night where Columbia mustered just four hits, but the two runs he gave up was enough to lift Augusta over Columbia. This was Canelon's 15th quality start of the season, throwing six innings of two-run ball and scattering eight hits. It has not been a pretty second half for the Fireflies.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (23-22)


A three-run home run from Peter Alonso in the third inning proved to be more than enough for the Cyclones to climb to one game over .500. It was Alonso's fourth home run of the season. On the mound Harol Gonzalez was spectacular once again, spinning seven shutout innings, permitting just four hits. Over Gonzalez's last 33.2 innings, he is pitching to a minuscule 0.53 ERA.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (15-25)


The K-Mets kick-off a series against Burlington tonight.

Rookie - GCL Mets (14-18)


Sticking to the theme of tonight, there wasn't much offense to be had. The offense hit four singles and that was it. Carlos Hernandez pitched quite well in his six innings of work but with no support, suffered his first loss of the season.

Star of the Night

Dom Smith

Goat of the Night

Josh Smoker
