Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (45-74)

LAS VEGAS 8, EL PASO 7 (Box)

The 51s came out of the box swinging, with Matt Reynolds and Travis Taijeron combining to score two runs in the top of the first- the latter slugging his 23rd home run- and Victor Cruzado and Phillip Evans combining to score three runs in the top of the second- the former hitting his seventh home run. The Chihuahuas clawed back, plating three runs in the fifth to make it a 5-5 tie, but Cody Decker slugged a solo homer and Gavin Cecchini and Phil Evans drove in a run apiece to make it 8-5 in the sixth. El Paso made things interesting by inching closer with runs in the bottom of the sixth and the eighth, but Kevin McGowan shut the door.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (68-47)

GAME ONE

BINGHAMTON 6, AKRON 1 / 7 (Box)

Robert Gsellman looked good in his rehab start, blanking the RubberDucks over six strong innings. When he stepped on the mound in the bottom of the first, the Ponies had already given him a 2-0 lead, as Kevin Taylor and Tomas Nido both knocked in runs. In the fourth, they gave him a little extra insurance, plating three more runs. Drew Smith relieved Gsellman in the seventh and gave up a solo homer to Yu-Cheng Chang to put the RubberDucks on the board, but settled down and finished out the inning to secure the victory.

GAME TWO

AKRON 2, BINGHAMTON 1 / 7 (Box)

This game was a makeup from a rain delay all the way back on May 14th. The RubberDucks were able to score a pair of runs off of Marcos Molina early on, and those two runs would stand. The Akron quartet of pitchers was able to keep the Rumble Ponies off of the board for most of the game. Their only run came in the seventh, when L.J. Mazzilli hit his third of the year.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (20-28/53-63)

TAMPA 12, ST. LUCIE 5 (Box)

Tampa third baseman Angel Aguilar, who came into the game hitting .157/.211/.209, was a force to be reckoned with, homering, doubling and singling, driving in five runs in total. Nabil Crismatt had another poor outing, his second in a row where he allowed seven earned runs and his third in his last five where he allowed five or more earned runs. Since the calendar turned to August, the Colombian’s ERA has risen from .80 points, from 3.24 to 4.04. For what it’s worth, the St. Lucie Mets were able to smack around Tampa starter Adonis Rosa, scoring five runs on eight hits. They scuffled against the Tampa bullpen, and were not able to dig out of the hole Crismatt put them in.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (19-28/59-56)

HICKORY 15, COLUMBIA 2 (Box)

Chase Ingram dug a deep hope for the Colaflies, giving up five runs in the second inning, but all should not have been lost. A five-run deficit is a tough one to get out of, to be sure, but it’s not impossible. Unfortunately for Columbia, the bats were asleep for most of the night, waking up late to plate a pair of runs. By that point, the game had turned into a route. Of note, Ryder Ryan made his organizational debut. The right-hander pitched two innings, allowing three runs on four hits, one of which was a home run. He walked one and struck out two. J.J. Franco, also assumed his birthright, recording the last out of the eighth and all three in the ninth. He gave up a run, allowing two hits.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-34)

SUSPENDED (RAIN)

Game was called with one out in the bottom of the fifth, with Brooklyn and West Virginia tied 1-1 apiece.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (20-27)

CANCELLED (RAIN)

Rookie - GCL Mets (14-24)

GAME ONE

GCL METS 13, GCL NATIONALS 5 (Box)

The Mets’ GCL affiliate put a hurting on the Nationals’ GCL affiliate. Too bad the same thing doesn’t normally happen at the MLB level. Jose Moreno had one of his better games of the 2017 season, while the offense pummeled GCL Nats pitchers Malvin Pena and Nector Ramirez. Of note, 2017 draftee Bryce Hutchinson made his professional debut, pitching two-thirds of an inning. He got touched up a bit, but no worries- the kid is gonna be big.

GAME TWO

GCL METS 2, GCL NATIONALS 0 / 7 (Box)

The GCL Mets got the better of the GCL Nats in game two of their double-header as well. Matt Cleveland and Miguel Gutierrez combined to shut them out, with Cleveland allowing one hit over four innings and Gutierrez none over three. Both of the GCL Mets’ runs came in the bottom of the fifth, when Raul Beracierta doubled into left to score Pedro Ventura and Matthew Foley.
