*All results from games played on Thursday, June 23, 2017

Triple-A Las Vegas 51s (28-46)


After allowing an RBI single to Jefry Marte, starter Wilfredo Boscan was pulled due to an injury after two thirds of an inning, turning the game over the the bullpen. The lack of depth in Triple-A continued to be an issue, as every reliever allowed at least one run, putting the 51s in an offensive whole they wouldn’t be able to recover from. Playing center field last night, Matt Reynolds was responsible for the only Vegas run, a solo home run in the fourth.

Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies (37-30)


The skid continues for the Ponies, losing their third in a row and going 3-7 over their last ten games. Starter Marcos Molina pitched well enough to at least keep Binghamton in the fight, posting seven innings while striking out three and allowing two runs. Luis Mateo entered for Molina and allow a three-run homer to Gunnar Heidt to blow the game open. David Thompson was responsible for the only Ponies run, a solo home run in the ninth inning.

Advanced-A Port St. Lucie Mets (34-36)


Jordan Humphreys’s first start since his promotion from the Columbia Fireflies wasn’t exactly a rousing success. Humphreys completed four innings, yielding six runs on 11 hits and only striking out one.

As luck would have it, his rocky start would not be the story of the night, as the Sunshine Mets’ lineup exploded to the tune of 19 runs on 20 hits. Peter Alonso continued his hot streak at the plate, going 4-for-5 with three doubles and a yet another grand slam. Vinny Sienna, who entered as a pinch hitter during the fifth inning, hit his first major league home run—also a grand slam. Though it wasn’t quite grand, Jhoan Urena hit a three-run blast—which, you know, is pretty cool too.

Low-A Columbia Fireflies (40-30)


It was a too little, too late affair for the Fireflies, as they dropped the second game of the new half against the Intimidators. Both squads put up three runs in the first inning, and the game held tied until Micker Adolfo hit a two-run home run against Harol Gonzalez to take the lead. Jacob Zanon scored on a wild pitch in eighth, but the victory was all but sealed at that point. Luis Carpio went 3-for-4 with a triple and one RBI.

Short-A Brooklyn Cyclones (2-2)


The narrow losses continued in Low-A ball, as the Cyclones were narrowly defeated by Vermont 5-4. The Lake Monsters put up two runs in the first inning against Cyclones starter Darwin Ramos on a two-run triple from Roger Gonzalez. Vermont tacked on two more runs in the fifth. Brooklyn got on the board with a pair on runs in sixth, and another pair in the ninth on an RBI single to Jose Maria and a sac flyto Ian Strom, but were unable to produce the tying run.
