*All results from games played on Saturday, August 19, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (50-77)

LAS VEGAS 10, SACRAMENTO 5 (Box)

It’s always gotta be a slug-fest in the PCL. The Bees knocked around Jonathan Albaladejo for four runs in the first two innings, but the 51s caught up, plating three in the bottom of the second and tying things up in the fifth. The 51s took the lead in the sixth, when Jayce Boyd hit a two-run homer, and really broke things open in the seventh.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled C Kevin Plawecki from Las Vegas 51s

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (73-49)

GAME ONE

SUSPENDED (RAIN)

GAME TWO

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (24-32/57-67)

ST. LUCIE 6, DUNEDIN 3 (Box)

Despite having an ERA just a shade under five, Andrew Church won his tenth game this season, once more demonstrating that wins and losses are virtually worthless stats. The game was back-and-forth, but St. Lucie took the lead for good in the bottom of the sixth, on a Jose Garcia sac fly. They gave themselves a little wiggle room in the seventh, when Peter Alonso and Jhoan Urena drew walks with the bases loaded. Jeurys Familia pitched the eighth and looked good, and Tom Gorzelanny, who was just transferred from the 51s to St. Lucie, pitched the ninth and earned the save.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Tom Gorzelanny assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Las Vegas 51s.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed LHP Kevin Canelon on the temporarily inactive list.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (22-32/62-60)

GAME ONE

ROME 8, COLUMBIA 2 / 7 (Box)

Columbia scored both of their runs in the first, and jumped out to an early lead, but Gabby Llanes was unable to hold the lead, giving up four runs in his four innings of work. Even if the Colaflies had scored a few more runs and made it a tighter game, it probably would not have mattered, as Keaton Aldridge gave up another four runs in the late innings.

GAME TWO

COLUMBIA 1, ROME 0 (Box)

Ian Strom mashed a moonshot over the left field wall in the fifth, and the run proved the moment of the game, as neither Columbia nor Rome scored again. Justin Brantley threw one of his best games this season, pitching six scoreless innings, scattering three hits, walking three, hitting two batters, and striking out seven. Matt Blackham notched his fifth save, tossing a scoreless seventh.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-41)

TRI-CITY 4, BROOKLYN 1 (Box)

That’s eight losses in a row for the Cyclones, the second longest losing streak in franchise history. Will Brooklyn ever win again? Will Edgardo Alfonzo find his smile? Stay tuned, true believers!

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (25-29)

DANVILLE 5, KINGSPORT 3 (Box)

Middle relief lost this game for Kingsport. When he was pulled after six innings, Briam Campusano left Kingsport down 3-1, still a close game. His replacement, Garrison Bryant, gave up another two, putting Kingsport well behind the eight ball. They ended up scoring two in the eighth, meaning they would’ve tied the game if Bryant held fast, but he didn’t.

Rookie - GCL Mets (15-29)
