*All results from games played on Saturday, July 8, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (34-55)

ALBURQURQUE 4, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)

Wilfredo Boscan wasn’t terrible, and neither was the bullpen, but the Isotopes were just a little better. Veteran Barry Enright held the 51s offense to just one run, a Phil Evans RBI single.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (46-37)

BINGHAMTON 3, HARTFORD 0 (Box)

Corey Oswalt’s quietly solid season continued, as the right-hander tossed six innings of shutout ball, bringing his season ERA down to 2.45 in 69.2 innings. Binghamton got on the board in the bottom of the third, when Champ Stuart scored from third on a Kevin Kaczmarski force out. The Rumble Ponies added to their lead in the sixth, when David Thompson hit his twentieth double of the season, driving in Matt Oberste and L. J. Mazzilli. Tim Peterson took the hill in the seventh and shut down the Yard Goats, as did Cory Burns, who earned his tenth save of the season.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (5-11/38-46)

ST. LUCIE 3, CHARLESTON 2 (Box)

St. Lucie got another decent outing from their starter, with Merandy Gonzalez allowing an unearned run over five-plus innings. The bullpen had his back, combining to allow just a run on two hits over the next three-plus innings, striking out seven. St. Lucie did all of their damage in the fourth, climbing out of a 1-0 hole. Ty Bashlor allowed a run in the bottom of the ninth, making things a little hairy, but came through in the end and shut the door for his eighth save.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (6-10/46-38)

CHARLESTON 13, COLUMBIA 2 (Box)

Blake Taylor had a terrible game that will go down in the annals of terrible game lore. The left-hander allowed twelve hits over three-plus innings, giving up eleven earned runs. About 75 innings into the season, Taylor saw his ERA go up almost an entire run by the time Matt Blackham was brought in to stop the bleeding.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (5-14)

GAME ONE

BROOKLYN 4, STATEN ISLAND 2 (Box)

With the score tied, a Carl Stajduhar opposite field home run proved the different in the Battle of the Bridge. A few innings later, the big third baseman hit a double to the same exact spot, missing a second homer by about ten feet or so. He did score when Matt Winaker hit a ball that landed just fair down the third base line, giving the Cyclones the same extra insurance run they would have if he did hit that homer, so ultimately, it didn’t matter much. While the Cyclones won, the star of the game was by far Jorge Guzman, who hit 100+ MPH multiple times on both the stadium gun and individual scouts’ guns. That kid looks like he’s gonna be good in a few years.

GAME TWO

STATEN ISLAND 7, BROOKLYN 2 (Box)

The Cyclones were not so lucky in game two. Trent Johnson just didn’t have his A stuff. The right-hander had one of the most consistent outings I’ve ever seen a pitcher have. He threw 9 fastballs in the first inning that I was able to get velocity readings on, and of those nine, eight were 88 MPH. The other was 89. In the second inning, he threw 10 fastballs I was able to get velocity readings on, seven of which were 88 MPH. The other three were 87 MPH. His curveball and changeup, same thing. Almost all of the former were 82 MPH, while almost all of the latter were 84 or 85 MPH.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (5-10)

GREENEVILLE 14, KINGSPORT 6 (Box)

Garrison Bryant didn’t exactly have the best outing, but the bullpen behind him was a million times worse. Bryant allowed four runs over five innings, but his fellow pitchers Ronald Sanchez, Yeudy Colon, and Ryan Selmer combined to allow eight more earned runs, and ten more unearned runs. The Kingsport offense didn’t exactly take the night off, but the bats were unable to catch up.

Rookie - GCL Mets (4-7)

GCL METS 4, GCL CARDINALS 0 (Box)

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Ryan McAuliffe assigned to GCL Mets.

Star of the Night

Carl Stajduhar

Goat of the Night
