Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (9-9)

SACRAMENTO 7, LAS VEGAS 6 (Box)

Rafael Montero was exceptional in his first start since being demoted from the Mets. The problem was the Vegas relief was anything but exceptional, allowing seven runs culminating in Christian Arroyo’s walk-off single in the bottom of the 10th. After relinquishing a 4-0 fifth inning lead, Las Vegas trailed 6-5 in the top on the ninth and down to their last strike, Amed Rosario lashed his first triple of the season to score Matt Reynolds and tie the game at 6. With his three hit game, Rosario boosted his season average to .403. Also with two hit games were his fellow 21-year old teammate Dominic Smith and Phillip Evans.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (7-7)

BINGHAMTON 2, ERIE 1 (BOX)

Mickey Jannis threw seven shutout innings and Corey Taylor survived an adventurous John Franco-esque ninth inning yesterday as the Rumble Ponies defeated the SeaWolves, 2-1. Jannis and Erie starter Anthony Vasquez were locked in a pitcher’s duel for the first six innings, but RBI singles in the second from Colton Plaia and Luis Guillorme would prove to be all Binghamton needed to secure victory.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (7-11)

DAYTONA 7, ST. LUCIE 6 (BOX)

Bullpen meltdowns were an epidemic in the Mets system yesterday, as the St. Lucie relievers turned a 6-3 seventh inning lead into a 7-6 walkoff loss to the Tortugas. Trailing 3-2 heading into the sixth, St. Lucie brought in four runs in the frame, including a two-run triple from the mightily struggling Vinny Siena. Daytona then began to chip away at the lead, scoring an unearned run against Kevin Canelon in the seventh, and another run against Cameron Griffin in the eighth. Alex Palsha was tasked with sealing the win in the, but a leadoff single and a Shed Long home run later and victory was Daytona’s.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (10-8)

LEXINGTON 4, COLUMBIA 2 (BOX)

A valiant Firefly comeback came up just short in the ninth inning, as Columbia lost the rubber game against the Lexington Legends 4-2. Blake Taylor took his third loss yesterday, allowing four runs in five innings, but the offense was equally poor for the first eight innings with just two hits and two walks. However, down to their last out, Columbia came alive with two runs and the potential winning run at the plate in Milton Ramos, but his third strikeout of the game put and end to the series, and the last-out magic.
