Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (43-74)

LAS VEGAS 9, RENO 7 (BOX)

Las Vegas put together two rallies of four runs or more. The first one, led by doubles from Matt Reynolds and Travis Taijeron and a two-run single from pitcher Donovan Hand, gave the 51s a 5-2 lead going into the fifth inning. Unfortunately, Hand couldn’t make that lead hold up, as he imploded to give up five runs over the next two innings. The 51s had another rally left in them though, scoring four runs in the bottom of the eighth. Matt Reynolds drove in the tying run with a single, and Kevin Plawecki doubled in the game-winning run one batter later. Jamie Callahan got the win with two strong innings of relief.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (67-46)

BINGHAMTON 6, ERIE 1 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies jumped out to a quick lead in the first. Matt Oberste drove in Champ Stuart with a single, and Tomas Nido followed that with a two-run home run to give Binghamton a 3-0 lead. That was more than enough for Casey Delgado, who tossed seven innings of one run ball, followed by shut out innings from Kelly Secrest and Tyler Bashlor. The Rumble Ponies have now won six straight, completing back-to-back sweeps of Harrisburg and Erie.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (20-27 / 33-35)

TAMPA 11, ST. LUCIE 5 (BOX)

St. Lucie managed a big rally in this game, scoring five runs in the top of the fourth. Peter Alonso got things started with a double, his 21st of the season. Jhoan Urena, Wuilmer Becerra, and Michael Paez followed with singles, and Jeff McNeil was hit by a pitch to drive in another run. Jose Garcia and J.C. Rodriguez drove in two more runs with sacrifice flies to close out the inning. Unfortunately, the Mets didn’t score again, and every pitcher St. Lucie sent out got pushed around, leading to the 11-5 loss.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (19-24 / 40-28)

HICKORY 5, COLUMBIA 0 (BOX)

It was truly a miserable night for the Fireflies’ position players. They managed almost three hits and made two errors, failing to score in a shutout loss. Colin Holderman allowed the bulk of the damage dealt by Hickory, giving up three runs in his 4.1 innings of work. Cameron Griffin and Matt Pobereyko both gave up a run in relief.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (15-34)

WEST VIRGINIA 8, BROOKLYN 3 (BOX)

The Cyclones jumped out to a lead in the second inning on a double from Jose Maria, but poor pitching and worse defense quickly undid that. An error lead to three unearned runs in the bottom of the third, and Jose Carlos Medina allowed an additional run in the fourth. Cannon Chadwick (easily an 80 grade pitcher name) dumped some more fuel on the fire, allowing four runs in his inning of work, though he too was victimized by an error. Brooklyn scored a couple late runs but not near enough to get back in it. Quinn Brodey stole his eighth base in the loss.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (20-27)

KINGSPORT 6, PRINCETON 5 (BOX)

With the game tied at four in the bottom of the seventh, Danny Hoy tripled to drive in Grabiel Jimenez. Raphael Gladu followed that with a sacrifice fly, givign the Mets a 6-5 lead and driving in what eventually was the game winning run. Pedro Perez struggled to start the eighth, and Mac Lozer allowed one of his inherited runners to score to make it a 6-5 game, but the reliever held on to preserve the win.

Rookie - GCL Mets (12-24)

GCL MARLINS 7, GCL METS 3 (BOX)

Yes, you read that correctly, that’s that Tom Gorzelanny pitching an inning for the GCL Mets. Gorzelanny was a non-roster invitee to spring training this year, but he injured his shoulder and had not pitched all season before Thursday night. In more important news, Mark Vientos—the Mets’ second round pick—launched his second professional home run, and Gregory Guerrero—nephew of Vlad Guerrero, one of two big players in the DSL last season along with Andres Gimenez—went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a walk.
