*All results from games played on Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (37-66)


When your starter gives up ten runs in three-and-two-thirds innings, it’s hard to win ballgames.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jonathan Albaladejo assigned to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (55-44)



For the first time in a while, Marcos Molina didn’t just look good, he looked damn good. Coming off the disabled list, the right-hander pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits, all singles. He didn’t walk a batter, and struck out nine, six swinging. Unfortunately for the Rumble Ponies, as good as Molina was, his RubberDuck counterpart, Shane Beiber, was just as good. The two pitchers combined to put up goose eggs in all seven “regulation” innings of game one of the double header. Both bullpens kept It going until the bottom of the ninth. In his second inning of work, Corey Taylor allowed a pair of baserunners, prompting Luis Rojas to call for the load-em-up and home for a double play gambit. Said gambit, unfortunately, did not work. With the count 3-2, Taylor threw DH Tyler Krieger a pitch almost right down Broadway and the Cleveland fourth rounder lofted the ball into center, allowing the lead runner to score on a sac fly.



What goes around comes around. The Rubber Ducks shut out the Rumble Ponies in Game one? The Rumble Ponies shut out the Rubber Ducks in game two. Mickey Jannis was on the ball, pitching one of his best games this season. The Binghamton bats, meanwhile, beat up on Akron starter Tanner Tully. Family, Duty, Honor.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed C Colton Plaia on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to July 24, 2017.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated RHP Marcos Molina from the 7-day disabled list.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (13-19/46-54)


For the second game in three starts, Merandy Gonzalez had an off night. The right-hander allowed four runs in six-plus innings. For the very first time this season, he walked more batters than he struck out. The St. Lucie bats chipped away at the Marauders’ lead, scoring a run in the sixth on a John Mora sac fly and another in the seventh on a Patrick Mazeika RBI single, but the Bradenton bullpen shut them down in the eighth and ninth, widening the gulf between them and the last place St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets activated RHP Nabil Crismatt from the temporarily inactive list.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed C Jose Garcia on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to July 23, 2017

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed RHP Joe Shaw on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to July 24, 2017

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (14-17/54-45)


A season-high five errors helped the Colaflies beat the Intimidators, though it was not all sunshine and rainbows as Blake Taylor was forced to leave in the third due to injury.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed C Ali Sanchez on the 7-day disabled list.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (12-23)


Thanks to Camp Day, the Cyclones’ game against the Iron Birds got an extremely early start, with first pitch coming at 11:30 AM- less than twelve hours after their eleven-inning affair ended the night before. Jose Maria got things started with a solo homer in the bottom of the second, and Walter Rasquin made it 2-0 with a sac fly in the bottom of the third, but Trent Johnson allowed two runs in the top of the fourth, tying things up at two apiece. The Cyclones took the lead once again in the bottom of the fifth, but Aberdeen plated two more off of Johnson in the top of the sixth, giving them a 4-3 edge. Both bullpens held each other off the board after that, and Brooklyn lost the rubber match.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (12-19)


Kingsport had a 2-0 lead through four innings, but the Danville Braves got to Garrison Bryant in the fifth, and then beat up on his replacements, Ronald Sanchez and Yeudy Colon.

Rookie - GCL Mets (7-16)


ROSTER ALERT: RHP Ronnie Taylor, Jr. assigned to GCL Mets

The Mets’ final selection in the 2017 MLB Draft, Taylor possesses a fastball that sits in the low-90s, and a low-to-mid-80s 11-5 curveball.
