Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (15-18)

LAS VEGAS 12, ALBURQURQUE 9 (Box)

Such a PCL game. Before Sean Gilmartin even threw a pitch, the 51s were up 2-0. Before he began his second inning of work, the 51s scored another five runs. The southpaw wound up pitching four-plus innings, giving up three runs- two earned- on eight hits. The bullpen behind him was shaky, but the offense kept piling on. Every position player got on base, and with the exception of Phil Evans, every position player had at least one hit. Dom Smith paced the offense with a 3-4 afternoon, smacking two doubles and driving in three.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned Josh Smoker to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (17-11)

PORTLAND 6, BINGHAMTON 5 (Box)

It looked like the Rumble Ponies would be taking a victory lap, but the Sea Dogs plated three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, ruining their plans. Portland initially had the lead, scoring two runs in the bottom of the first off of Casey Delgado, but the offense was able to claw back against Teddy Stankiewicz. Delgado ended up pitching only five innings because he got ejected while chirping at the men in blue by third base ump Takahito Matsuda while Binghamton was up at bat. With a 5-3 lead, Corey Taylor took the mound in the bottom of the eighth and things went horribly wrong. Portland logged four singles in the inning, scoring three runs. Taylor blew his third save of the year, and Binghamton lost the ballgame.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (14-19)

ST. LUCIE 6, LAKELAND 3 (Box)

St. Lucie took another one from Lakeland, this time in dominant fashion. The rehabbing Lucas Duda got things started with a solo home run in the bottom of the first, and the runs kept coming. In the bottom of the second, consecutive hits from the grittiest trio in baseball- Nick Sergakis, Vinny Siena, and John Mora- drove in three runs, and in the bottom of the third, Patrick Mazeika and Wuilmer Becerra both drove in a run with RBI singles and Nick Sergakis worked a walk with bases loaded to force in a run- and end Flying Tigers starter Sandy Baez’ night. In the bottom of the seventh, St. Lucie plated two more runs, with Jhoan Urena plating his first and Wuilmer Becerra his second. All in all, the offense clicked on all cylinders. Jeff Diehl was the only position player to not log a hit, while the middle of the order all logged three apiece. Andrew Church, meanwhile, was solid-if-unspectacular, pitching seven innings of one-run ball. His one mistake came in the top of the second, when he allowed a solo homer to Lakeland third baseman Zac Shepherd. Joshua Torres relieved him in the eighth and finished out the ballgame and closed the book on the Flying Tigers.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed C Anthony Dimino on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Leon Byrd assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Brooklyn Cyclones.
