Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (56-58)


The 51s were a little short in the bullpen, with only a few arms available if need be, so they needed starter Rob Gsellman to give them innings. The right-hander obliged, throwing seven-plus innings of three run ball. He threw a season-high 113 pitches- 77 for strikes- and looked good all night. He changed speeds effectively, worked both sides of the plate, was mixing in a good sinker, and perhaps most importantly, maintained his velocity late. Despite giving his all, his best was not good enough. Rather, the Las Vegas offense let him down, managing only two runs for the night.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (52-59)


In a game closed to the public because of the homeless Yard Goats’ situation, Binghamton barely escaped with a win. Stefan Sabol tied the game with a two-run homer in the eighth, and Matt Oberste plated the go-ahead run in the ninth to put the B-Mets ahead 7-6. David Roseboom, who has grown into his role as closer, notched his tenth save and remained perfect on the season. Amed Rosario, who had been out of the lineup nursing injuries, returned to the line-up and did not miss a beat, going 3-5. Fellow top prospect Dom Smith also had a good night, going 4-5 with a double. While not a top prospect, B-Mets stalwart L.J. Mazzilli did not start, having been promoted to the Las Vegas 51s. Little Maz was hitting .244/.331/.348 in 91 games with Binghamton this season, and hit .263/.337/.334 in 86 games with them last year.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (57-50 / 22-18)


St. Lucie scored early and often, and that would be a good thing, as the Marauders ended up making it a game. David Thompson started things off with his second home run with St. Lucie- and seventh on the season- to put the Mets on the board in the first. Michael Katz drove a man in in the second, John Mora walked with the bases loaded to score a run in the third, and Patrick Biondi and Thompson drove in one run apiece in the fourth. Chris Flexen got the start, and allowed three runs in 4 plus innings, before being relieved by Alex Palsha. Palsha allowed a run before handing the ball off to P.J. Conlon, who made his first relief appearance of the season. The lefty threw three scoreless innings to log his first career save.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (51-60 / 15-26)


Rome scored a run off of Joe Shaw in the bottom of the first, but that run would end up being the only one they would score all evening. The 2015 draftee would end up throwing eight innings of four hit, one run ball. The Braves’ pitchers were just as good, but stumbled in the seventh, when Ricardo Sanchez and Oriel Caicedo allowed five runs combined.

Short-A – Brooklyn Cyclones (24-23)


Justin Dunn started the game, tossing his requisite three innings and looked solid-if-unspectacular, allowing one hit and hitting a batter. Reports from Dutchess Stadium had Dunn sitting in the low-to-mid 90s with his fastball, which is where the right-hander generally sits. With Nabil Crismatt promoted to the Columbia Fireflies, Dunn didn’t have his usual piggyback buddy. Sidearmer Adam Atkins relieved Dunn instead, and immediately allowed the Renegades to score a run. Gabriel Feliz finished out the inning, but in the fifth ran into trouble of his own, allowing three runs to score. The Cyclones scored a pair of late runs thanks to hits by Michael Paez and Gene Cone, but the back end of the Renegades bullpen held fast.

Rookie – Kingsport Mets (15-27)


Burlington scored a few times early, but Kingsport neutralized all that with a three-run fifth inning. The Kingsport bullpen was unable to keep things tied, as Adrian Almieda allowed three runs to score in the seventh, Colin Holderman allowed two to score in the eighth, and Kurtis Horne allowed a run to score in the ninth (though it was charged to Holderman, who started the inning with a pair of walks).
