Ricky Knapp - 2014 Chris McShane

*All results from games played on Thursday, July 27, 2017

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (W-L)

LAS VEGAS 7, NASHVILLE 2 (BOX)

Ricky Knapp had an excellent outing in a 7-2 win over Nashville. Knapp went 6.2 innings, allowing only one run and striking out four to earn his fifth win. Amed Rosario had a good day at the plate, going 2-for-5 with a steal, though he did commit an error. Dominic Smith got the day off (no, he’s not being promoted).

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (57-44)

BINGHAMTON 6, NEW HAMPSHIRE 4 (BOX)

Robert Gsellman did not fare well in his first rehab outing, but the Rumble Ponies rallied to win 6-4. Gsellman, who was only slated to pitch one inning, couldn’t even make it that far, allowing three hits and a walk in 0.2 innings. Casey Delgado followed that up with an excellent long relief outing, and Binghamton rode a four-run rally in the sixth to the win.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (13-21 / 33-35)

BRADENTON 8, ST. LUCIE 1 (BOX)

The St. Lucie Mets’ second-half struggles continued, as they dropped an 8-1 game to Bradenton. Mike Gibbons was roughed up over 4.2 innings, allowing eight hits and five runs. Tim Tebow led off and went 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts, and Michael Paez was the only Met with multiple hits.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (W-L / 40-28)

AUGUSTA 10, COLUMBIA 4 (BOX)

The Fireflies allowed runs in six of nine innings, losing in a blowout 10-4. Gabriel Llanes wore this one, going 6.1 innings and surrendering 10 hits and seven runs. Brandon Brosher homered in the loss.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (12-24)

LOWELL 6, BROOKLYN 0 (BOX)
The Cyclones were shut out, falling to Lowell 6-0. Luis De Los Santos allowed five runs over 3.1 innings, and the Brooklyn offense just never woke up. The three, four, and five hitters combined to go 0-for-12 with four strikeouts. Chris Viall had a solid outing in relief, striking out four in two innings.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (14-20)

BURLINGTON 5, KINGSPORT 1 / 7 (BOX)

Kingsport dropped the first half of their double header behind a rough start from Carlos Hernandez, falling 5-1. Hernandez gave up five runs on eight hits in his five innings of work, though two of those were unearned. Hansel Moreno had the only run for Kingsport.

KINGSPORT 8, BURLINGTON 7 / 7 (BOX)

In a makeup of their rained-out game on June 24, Kingsport bounced back to top Burlington 8-7. Juan Uriarte and Rigoberto Terrazas both homered as the Mets scored in three straight innings to build a lead they wouldn’t give up. Mac Lozer made things interesting in the sixth and seventh, but ultimately held on for the save.

Rookie - GCL Mets (7-18)

GCL Nationals 1, GCL METS 0 (BOX)

The GCL Mets outhit the GCL Nationals 6-3, but an unearned run in the ninth inning cost them the game in a 1-0 loss. Yeizo Campos tossed eight shutout innings with nine strikeouts, but a Luis Lebron throwing error (his second in the game) led to an unearned run against Kyle Wilson.
