Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (30-49)


Wilfredo Boscan struggled in Tacoma, as the 51s fell to the Rainiers 7-2. Boscan gave up two in the bottom of the first, as former major league semi-notables Leonys Martin and Gordon Beckham led off the game with hits and both came around to score. Las Vegas answered right back in the top of the second on a Xorge Carrillo blooper which plated Dominic Smith and Josh Rodriguez. However, the Vegas bats went silent the rest of the way, recording only two more hits the rest of the way. Tacoma blew it open in the fourth, powered by home runs from Martin and Boog Powell, who went 3-4 with 4 RBI. No word yet on the quality of his ribs.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled Matt Reynolds from Las Vegas 51s.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s activated RHP Wilfredo Boscan from the temporarily inactive list.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (40-33)


The Ponies were left trampled in the yard in Hartford last night, dropping a 7-1 decision to the Yard Goats. Marcos Molina struggled early, giving up a three-run home run to Dom Nunez in the bottom of the first. He settled down thereafter—and walked and scored Binghamton’s only run in the top of the third on a Champ Stuart RBI triple—but the Ponies’ offense was silent thereafter. Hartford put up two runs in each of the seventh and eighth against the Binghamton bullpen to put the game (further) out of reach.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (1-5/34-40)


Justin Dunn struggled in the first inning, allowing four runs (only one earned) in the frame to put the Mets in a deficit from which they would not recover. Dunn walked three and struck out three in an uneven outing, and he and Patrick Mazeika struggled to control the running game, allowing three stolen bases to the Cardinals. Peter Alonso factored in both St. Lucie runs, singling in the first, as Jhoan Urena scored on an error, and doubling in J.C. Rodriguez in the fourth.


Jesus showed what happens when you question Tim Tebow’s call-up, as the former NFL quarterback turned minor-league outfielder displayed more than just improved exit velocity in the nightcap, homering in the second inning of his second game in High-A (after going 1-2 with a walk in the opener). The blast gave the Mets a 3-1 lead that Nabil Crismatt would nurse into the sixth. After getting the first out in the inning, an infield single by Danny Diekroeger opened the floodgates for the Cardinals. They would go on to chase Crismatt and bat around in the frame, scoring four times to take the lead en route to the sweep.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent RHP Mike Gibbons on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (3-3/43-32)


The Colaflies bounced back from a tough ninth inning defeat last night to sneak by the Legends 5-4 in Lexington. It was largely a team effort from the offense, as every starter except for Dash Winningham and Luis Carpio recorded at least one hit as the team jumped out to a 5-2 lead through five. Harol Gonzalez held that lead into the seventh, when he departed with the bases loaded and two outs. Adonis Uceta allowed two of those inherited runners to score on a bloop single to left, but closed out the inning, then was solid over the last two frames in recording his seventh save.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (2-6)


The Cyclones continued their slow start to the 2017 campaign, dropping to 2-6 on the young season in their defeat to Aberdeen. It was a pitchers’ duel early, as Trent Johnson and his Aberdeen counterpart Brenan Hanifee surrendered only five hits between them over the first five frames. Brooklyn broke through first in the top of the sixth, as Jose Miguel Medina walked, stole second, and scored on a Quinn Brodey RBI single. However, the Ironbirds answered with a two-run home run from Seamus Curran in the bottom of the frame, then piled on late to put the game away.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (3-3)


After starting the year 3-0, the Mets dropped their third straight, this one the opener of a series with the Elizabethton Twins. The Mets mustered only three hits—none off of Twins starter Edwar Colina in his five innings. Reliever Billy Oxford surrendered a two-run home run in the eighth to J..J. Robinson to salt the game away.

Rookie - GCL Mets (1-2)


The GCL Mets finally got one in the win column, walking off the GCL Cardinals on a two-out RBI single by Anthony Dimino. Starter Mike Gibbons struggled, giving up three runs in the top of the first, and failed to get out of the second inning. However, Yeizo Campos was stellar in relief, going 5.2 innings while surrendering only one run and striking out six. This allowed the Mets to get back in the game, scoring in each of the fourth, fifth, and seventh innings before the ninth inning rally.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent RHP Chase Ingram on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.
