Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (31-51)

SALT LAKE 6, LAS VEGAS 3 (Box)

The first place Bees came out swinging, scoring a pair of runs in the first and another pair in the second off of Tyler Pill, who lasted only three innings. The 51s finally got on the board in the 5th, and Travis Taijeron hit his fifteenth homer of the season in the ninth to add another run, but in the end the lead Salt Lake built was too big to overcome.

Oh, notice that someone is missing from the lineup? As of 12:30 AM, when I finished writing this, there is no conclusive, definitive answer. Coupled with the fact that Luis Guillorme was scratched from Binghamton’s game (which was rained out), well, make of that as you will.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (41-34)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (1-7/34-42)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (3-6/43-34)

ROME 5, COLUMBIA 1 (Box)

Columbia had a tough task ahead of them in the form of Braves prospect Joey Wentz, but they had Thomas Szapucki on the mound, so it would likely be a game of chicken between the two teams. The lefty struck out the side in the first before giving up a run in the second, and two more in the fifth. Columbia finally got on the board in the eighth, when shortstop Marcus Mooney bobbled a Jacob Zanon grounder up the middle, allowing Andres Gimenez to score, but Rome immediately got the run back and then some in the top of the ninth. All in all, it was a forgettable night for the Fireflies, though it is worth noting that their two youngest players, Andres Gimenez (18) and Luis Carpio (19) both had multi-hit games.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (2-5)

SUSPENDED (RAIN)

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (3-5)

SUSPENDED (RAIN)

Rookie - GCL Mets (2-3)

GCL METS 12, GCL MARLINS 6 (Box)

The GCL Mets broke out the wood and clobbered the GCL Marlins. While most of the lineup notched two hits, the most noteworthy performance was that of a guy who went 1-5. Mark Vientos, the Mets’ second-round pick in the 2017 MLB Draft, made his professional debut, and hit a line drive into center in his very first at-bat, driving in Kenny Hernandez and contributing to a run in the GCL Mets’ run parade.
