Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (65-73)


It’s odd to see in the PCL but El Paso shut out Las Vegas last night. The 51s tallied eight hits but stranded 10 baserunners. Starter Josh Zeid did not fare too well, allowing four runs on five hits and walking three in 5.1 innings. Brandon Nimmo collected two hits on the night, recording yet another multi-hit game. He has at least two hits in four of the last five games, boosting his season average to a gaudy .352.

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (62-72)


It was a tale of two Mickey Jannises in this one. He retired the first 11 batters of the game before giving up a three-run home run in the fourth inning to give Altoona a 3-2 lead. The B-Mets grabbed the lead in a poorly played half-inning of baseball. L.J. Mazzilli reached base on a catcher’s interference, Champ Stuart then singled and stole second as Altoona’s pitcher unleashed a wild pitch, allowing Mazzilli to score. Stuart moved to third on a balk and then came around to score on a throwing error in the infield. Despite being handed a 4-3 lead, Jannis imploded. Overall, he was blasted for seven runs on seven hits over six innings. Safe to say his knuckleball wasn’t dancing.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (71-60 / 36-28)


St. Lucie was supposed to play a doubleheader against Charlotte to make up for a rainout two nights ago but it was not to be. The teams do not meet again this season so the games will not be made up.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (64-71 / 28-37)


Dale Burdick played hero last night as Columbia walked-off West Virginia. West Virginia’s Seth McGarry retired the first batter to face him in the bottom of the ninth. He then walked Will Barring and the base on balls proved to be costly as Burdick laced a double to send the Fireflies home happy. Luis De Los Santos was serviceable for 5.2 innings, allowing three runs—two earned—on five hits with five punchouts.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (31-27)


After being shut out two nights ago, Brooklyn jumped all over Auburn with nine runs on 14 hits. All but one starter recorded a hit. Desmond Lindsay had three hits in the win. Harol Gonzalez coughed up two runs in the first inning but put up zeroes the rest of the way. All told, he spun seven innings of two-run ball while scattering nine hits. Auburn was just 2-for-11 with runners in scoring position. Gonzalez’s ERA sits at an impressive 1.66 through 81.1 innings with more than a strikeout per inning.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (26-41)


Jose Maria provided all of the offense for Kingsport with a solo home run in the third and then a walk-off single in the 10th inning. Jeremy Wolf reached base on a throwing error by Bristol’s third baseman and was able to scamper all the way to third on the play. After Jose Miguel Medina struck out, Maria singled in the winning run. Adonis Uceta pitched brilliantly but was not able to get a win to reward his efforts. He tossed eight innings of one-run ball while fanning eight batters.

Rookie - GCL Mets (26-28)
