Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (32-53)


Rickey Knapp successfully navigated through the first two frames, but the Chihuahuas struck in the third, plating three runs on three consecutive hits. The 51s finally got on the board in the bottom of the seventh when Travis Taijeron drove in Kevin Plawecki, but El Paso got that run back and then some when they plated two runs in the top of the eighth. The 51s had no answer, and disobeying President Thomas Whitmore in 1996, went quietly into the night, vanished without a fight, did not live on, nor did they survive. Some Independence Day.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (44-35)


The Curve did a number on Marcos Molina, touching him up for six runs- four earned- over five plus innings. It’s not like there’s ever an opportune time for a clunker, but Molina luckily did not waste a good effort, as the Rumble Pony offense was nowhere to be found. Tanner Anderson scattered four hits and walked one over eight strong innings, handing things over to Yeudy Garcia, who finished things up without any effort. Why does Bill Pullman keep getting ignored here?

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (2-10/35-45)

CHARLOTTE 7, ST. LUCIE 6 / 11 (Box)

The St. Lucie Mets took an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second, but Justin Dunn had a big hiccup in the top of third and allowed five runs to score. The Stone Crabs added another run in the top of the fourth, giving them a 6-1 lead, but St. Lucie was in it for the long haul and chipped away. They plated a run in the bottom of the fourth to make it 6-2, one in the bottom of the seventh to make it 6-3, and three in the bottom of the eighth to tie things up. The game would remain tied until the top of the eleventh, when Peter Maris III singled, stole second, and took third on a wild pitch, coming around to score a few batters later. St. Lucie got things going in the bottom of the inning, and it looked like a comeback was imminent, but things fizzled out.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Aneury Olivo assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (5-6/45-34)


That’s minor league baseball, folks. The power went out at Lake Olmstead Stadium right before the bottom of the seventh was about to begin, and they weren’t able to get it back on. It’ll be completed tomorrow, with Augusta up 5-3. Harol Gonzalez had a rough first and gave up five runs on five hits, but he righted the ship and kept the GreenJackets off the board for the rest of his night, allowing the Colafly offense to chip away.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (3-11)


The Tri-City ValleyCats jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead, scoring three runs off of Darwin Ramos in the first, but the offense bailed him out with a four run second. They Cyclones batted around in the inning, knocked Tri-City starter Tyler Ivey out of the game after one-plus innings. A Reed Gamache sac fly in the fourth gave Brooklyn a little extra breathing room, and it looked like they wouldn’t even need it, as Ramos held the ValleyCats scoreless for the rest of his time on the mound, as did 2017 draftee Cannon Chadwick. Chadwick’s fellow 2017 draftee, Conner O’Neil looked good in the seventh, but had a disaster of an eighth, allowing six runs to score and giving Tri-City a commanding lead.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Marcel Renteria assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (4-7)


Though it looked like it would be in doubt after the Bristol Pirates plated four runs in the bottom of the fourth, giving them a 4-1 edge, the Kingsport Mets snapped a seven-game losing streak. Kingsport took the lead in the sixth, as the raindrops started to get heavy down at Boyce Cox Field. Gavin Garay knocked in two with a double before the game went into a rain delay, and then when things resumed, Edgardo Fermin doubled in two more to tie things up and give Kingsport the lead. Ryan Selmer and Yeudy Colon held things down, and kept the Pirates off the board.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Luis De Los Santos assigned to Kingsport Mets.

Rookie - GCL Mets (3-5)


The GCL Mets put up a big first inning, with Mark Vientos doubling in two, and Raul Beracierta and Kenny Bautista driving in one apiece. Jason Vilera, who tossed five shutout innings in his first start, was solid once again, allowing only two runs over six innings en route to his first win of the season.

ROSTER ALERT: Jose Moreno assigned to GCL Mets from DSL Mets1.
