Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (56-57)

GAME ONE: FRESNO 6, LAS VEGAS 3 F/7 (Box)

The 51s took a 3-1 lead in the first inning last night, but Darin Gorski surrendered it back slowly, leading to a 6-3 loss to the Grizzlies in the first game of this Pacific Coast League doubleheader. Kevin Plawecki, Eric Campbell, and T.J. Rivera each drove in a run in defeat.

GAME TWO: LAS VEGAS 9, FRESNO 4 F/7 (Box)

Eric Campbell and Travis Taijeron each hit home runs as the 51s cruised to a 9-4 win in the second game of the doubleheader. The 1-6 hitters for Las Vegas went 9-for-19 with two doubles, two home runs, and nine runs scored. Seth Lugo was shaky in his two innings of work, but his Fresno starting counterpart Brian Holmes was even shakier, paving the way for victory.

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (51-59)

BINGHAMTON 3, HARRSIBURG 2 (Box)

Champ Stuart and L.J. Mazzilli each hit home runs to pace the B-Mets to a 3-2 comeback victory over the Senators in Binghamton last night. Jaron Long—son of Kevin—took the loss for Harrisburg, while Rafael Montero’s seven above-average innings allowed him to take the W home. David Roseboom continues his outstanding Double-A campaign, earning his ninth save of the season.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (56-50 / 21-18)

JUPITER 3, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

The St. Lucie Mets fell last night in aggravating fashion to the division-leading Hammerheads 3-1, as Jupiter made a 2-0 first inning lead prove to be all the runs they needed on the night. St. Lucie wasn’t without their chances, but an 0-for-12 with runners in scoring position and ten men left on base stifled any chance of offensive momentum in this affair. Scarlyn Reyes took the loss despite throwing six good innings.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (50-60 /14-26)

GAME ONE: ROME 4, COLUMBIA 3 (Box)

Bear with me for this description, please: this game was the completion of a suspended July 18 game in Columbia. However, since the Braves had no more scheduled dates against the Colaflies at Spirit Communications Park, this game had to be finished in Rome with Columbia as the home team.

Got it? Good.

Gaby Almonte took one for the team, throwing eight innings in a slog to the end. Tucker Tharp and Milton Ramos each had two hits for the Colaflies.

GAME TWO: COLUMBIA 2, ROME 1 (Box)

Andrew Church did good Andrew Church things last night, striking out eight in just 5.2 innings of work as Columbia snagged the night 2-1 from the Braves. The Colaflies got their two runs on a throwing error by Rome third baseman Austin Riley, and with sixteen strikeouts in the two games Columbia now has 926 on the season in 110 games.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (24-22)

BROOKLYN 6, HUDSON VALLEY 1 (Box)

The Cyclones had ten hits, including five doubles, to aid Merandy Gonzalez’s 5.2 victorious innings last night in Wappingers Falls. The bullpen was on point in this one, throwing 3.1 one-hit innings in relief, and Jacob Zanon stole his 20th base, which is pretty impressive in just 21 attempts.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (15-26)

BURLINGTON 5, KINGSPORT 0 (Box)

This game was over pretty quickly as the K-Mets meekly fell to the Burlington Royals 5-0 last night at Hunter Wright Stadium.

Rookie - GCL Mets (15-18)

GCL METS 13, GCL CARDINALS 2 (Box)

Swing away, rookie Mets, swing away! I don’t even like the Cardinals’ GCL team, so this box score and recap brought some delight to the end of my report.
