Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (45-75)


The 51s got on the board first, plating two runs in the second when Gavin Cecchini scored Josh Rodriguez and Cody Decker on a single into right. Matt Reynolds added an insurance run in the fifth when he drove in Victor Cruzado on a groundball down the left field line. Las Vegas starter Rickey Knapp looked pretty good, keeping a shutout going through seven innings. With two outs in the eighth, he allowed a deep fly ball to Franchy Cordero that Victor Cruzado seemed to have a bead on. While turning around, Cruzado tripped, allowing the ball to drop in just in front of the warning track for an RBI triple. After the misplay, Knapp he was removed in favor of Jamie Callahan, who finished up the inning. He was not able to finish up the game, as he allowed an eight-batter bottom of the ninth that included a solo homer to lead things off, a fielding error by second baseman Gavin Cecchini that allowed the tying run to score, and an eventual game-winning single.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed LHP Josh Edgin on the 7-day disabled list.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (68-48)


Mickey Jannis did not deserve to be pegged with his sixth loss of the season, as he only allowed one run over five innings, but that’s how baseball works. The Rumble Ponies’ offense was neutered by Luis Lugo and Jordan Milbrath, who combined to shutout Binghamton. Of note, Luis Guillorme’s on-base streak increased to thirty-two games.

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

TAMPA 5, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

Yeizo Campos, promoted from the GCL Mets, looked good early on, but Tampa got to him in the third, tagging the right-hander for three runs. They scored one more run off of him in the fifth, giving him a final line of four runs on eight hits, with a walk and a pair of strikeouts over five innings. St. Lucie avoided the shutout when J.C. Rodriguez ripped a two-out double in the top of the ninth that scored Tim Tebow, who got on base earlier in the inning when he got hit in the head by a Trevor Lane pitch. Definitely a scary moment. Tebow looked a bit shook up when walking over to take his base, but he stayed in the game and was able to score all the way from first, so seemingly was alright.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (19-29/59-57)


Martin Anderson wasn’t exactly good, allowing three runs, one in each of the first three innings, and seven hits, but he wasn’t exactly terrible either, as he did strike out eight in his five-plus innings on the mound. Columbia’s only run came in the fifth, when Jay Jabs hit a solo homer, his seventh of the season.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed RHP Chase Ingram on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies activated RF Gene Cone from the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed RHP Gabriel Llanes on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies activated 1B Dash Winningham from the 7-day disabled list

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-36)



The game was called two nights ago with one out in the bottom of the fifth, with Brooklyn and Hudson Valley tied 1-1 apiece. When things resumed yesterday afternoon, the Renegades quickly took the lead on a Bill Pujols double and didn’t look back. They scored a pair of insurance runs in the eighth off of Gregorix Estevez, while the Brooklyn offense came up short against Eduard Rosillo and Zack Mozingo.



The Cyclones took an early lead in the top of the first when Quinn Brodey hit a sac fly that scored Walter Rasquin, but the rehabbing Matt Harvey gave the run back up in the bottom of the inning. Luis De Los Santos took over for Harvey and allowed six runs to score in his three innings of work. The Cyclones scored again in the sixth, but it mattered little in the end.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (22-27)



Christian James has been struggling as of late, with his ERA almost doubling in the span of a few starts, but the right-hander was back on track yesterday afternoon. He had absolutely no problem dealing with the Astros, scattering five hits, striking out nine, and coming within two outs of the complete game shutout. He pitched with the lead for the entire game, as Wagner Lagrange and Juan Uriarte both drove in runs with doubles in the first.



In the makeup from Friday, Kingsport took an early 2-0 lead when Wagner Lagrange and Kevin Hall drove in a run apiece. This certainly must’ve given Edwin German some piece of mind, as the Dominican right-hander was making his first start since 2015. Marbin Montijo and Aaron Ford continued and completed the shut out, while Hall tacked on another run in the seventh.

Rookie - GCL Mets (14-25)


Dedniel Nunez looked good early, but allowed a pair of runs in the third and fourth, putting the GCL Mets well behind the eight ball. Puerto Rican right-hander Dariel Rivera allowed an additional run in the fifth, but it ultimately didn’t really matter much, as the offense was completely stymied against the GCL Cards corps of pitching. Only two players notched hits, Robby Kidwell in the third and Gregory Guerrero in the ninth. Of note, former Mets pitcher Sean Gilmartin got the start, rehabbing from injury.
