Mets Daily Prospect Report, 9/3/16: St. Lucie is playoff bound

Catch up on all the Mets prospects in yesterday's minor league action!

*All results from games played on Friday, September 2, 2016

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (68-73)


The 51s staged a late inning comeback to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and win their 68th ballgame. Down 4-2 in the seventh inning, the Bees made two important errors that allowed Travis Taijeron and Matt Reynolds to reach base and Brandon Nimmo to knock them both home with a ground ball down the line. One inning later, with the game tied at four apiece, Reynolds doubled and drove in T.J. Rivera, putting the 51s on top. Jeff Walters, in his second inning of work, pitched a 1-2-3 eighth, and Paul Sewald shut the door in the ninth to earn his nineteenth save, tying him for second most in the PCL.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (62-75)


For the second straight game, the B-Mets have been shut out, the first time since July 2006 that such back-to-back losses have occurred. Nabil Crismatt was solid in his Double-A debut, allowing one run on five hits over six innings. One of those hits that he allowed was a solo home run, and as such, was tagged with a tough-luck loss. Erie tacked on another run in the seventh off of Kyle Regnault, but given the fact that Binghamton was shut out, that run wouldn’t actually matter. The B-Mets came 90 feet away getting on the board, and possibly even tying the game, as they loaded the bases when Victor Cruzado walked, Jayce Boyd doubled and Raywilly Gomez walked with two outs in the ninth inning, but Maikis De La Cruz grounded out to short to end the game.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (73-60 / 38-28)


With a 9-2 win over the Jupiter Hammerheads, the St. Lucie Mets clinched the Florida State League South Division's second half and are playoff bound for the first time since 2012. They scored a run in the first, and plated three more in the second, giving them an early 4-0 lead. P.J. Conlon, meanwhile, put up zero after zero, allowing one hit and three walks over five innings. St. Lucie padded their lead late with a few more runs in the seventh and eighth to seal the deal and stamp their ticket to the FSL South Division Series, where they will host the Bradenton Marauders.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (65-71 / 29-37)


Short-A – Brooklyn Cyclones (36-37)


The quest to avoid a second sub-.500 season continues, and Brooklyn took a step in the right direction last night with a 11-1 rout over the Aberdeen IronBirds. The game was actually a fairly close one for most of the evening, with a score of 2-1 Brooklyn going into the eighth inning. The Cyclones had their way with three Aberdeen relief pitchers, plating seven runs on five hits, three walks, a hit by pitch, and an error. Michael Paez and Blake Tiberi paced the offense, each logging a career-high four hits, while every other hitter with the exception of Jay Jabs logged at least one. In what is very likely his last start of the season, Merandy Gonzalez was solid as usual, allowing a run on two hits over six-plus innings. If he does not find his way into another game this season, the 20-year-old will finish the 2016 season with a respectable 2.87 ERA over 66.2 innings with 65 hits allowed, a .254 BAA, 27 walks and 71 strikeouts, third most in the New York-Penn League.

Rookie – Kingsport Mets (27-41)


Rookie – GCL Mets (26-29)
