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


Jayce Boyd had a perfect night at the plate in leading the 51s to an 8-4 victory over the Bees. Boyd’s two-out single in the bottom of the first gave Vegas an early 2-0 lead that they were able to extend in the bottom of the second when a Jeff McNeil sacrifice fly plated Victor Cruzado. After Salt Lake cut the lead to one with two in the top of the third, Boyd struck again, blasting his 10th home run of the year to left-center to reestablish the three run lead. Salt Lake would creep within a run yet again in the top of the fifth, but Vegas would once again answer right back in the bottom of the frame. Travis Taijeron—who also had himself a game—doubled in Phillip Evans, who had led off with a walk, and later came around to score on a bases-loaded walk. Taijeron went oppo leading off the bottom of the seventh for the final run, as the 51 bullpen threw four scoreless innings—including a perfect ninth from newly-acquired Jacob Rhame—to ice the victory.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jacob Rhame assigned to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (75-49)



Kevin McAvoy and Taylor Grover blanked the Rumble Ponies over seven innings, but Binghamton finally broke through in the bottom of the eighth. After getting Champ Stuart to fly out, Ty Buttrey walked Luis Guillorme, bringing Kevin Kaczmarski to the plate. The right fielder laced the 1-2 pitch off the right field wall, allowing Guillorme to score and giving Binghamton their sixth walk-off of the 2017 season.



The Rumble Ponies found themselves trailing, as Teddy Stankiewicz held them scoreless over five innings. In the sixth, they managed to scratch across a run, but the comeback came in the seventh. After Luis Guillorme walked and Kevin Kaczmarski hit a single, Matt Oberste single into center to score a run. David Thompson tied the game with a run-scoring groundout to second, and Kevin Taylor completed the comeback by ripping a 2-2 pitch down the right field line to win it, their seventh win in a row. With the win, Binghamton’s magic number to clinch a playoff spot dropped to four.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RHP Matt Harvey on a rehab assignment to Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (24-33/57-68)

DUNEDIN 8, ST. LUCIE 0 / 7 (Box)

It’s a good thing that the game was called early due to wet grounds, because who knows how deep of the hole St. Lucie might’ve found themselves in if the game had gone all nine innings. St. Lucie had trouble getting on base all afternoon, with Anthony Dimino one, former top 10 prospect Wuilmer Becerra one, and future top 10 prospect Peter Alonso two.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (23-33/63-61)

ROME 11, COLUMBIA 6 / 16 (Box)

With a score like that, would you believe this game went sixteen innings? Leudys Baez hit a grand slam in the top of the 16th inning to help lead the Rome Braves to an 11-6 win. The grand slam capped a six-run inning for Rome, as Jordan Rodgers also scored on a fielder's choice and Kurt Hoekstra scored after drawing a walk with bases loaded.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-42)


The Cyclones had a four-run first, and after somehow squandering that lead, had a three-run fifth to retake it. They couldn’t possibly screw that up, right? Hold Brooklyn’s beer. Yes indeed, the Cyclones managed to screw things up, finding themselves on the wrong side of the W/L ledger in a game that saw them log seventeen hits. With the loss, Brooklyn’s losing streak is up to nine, a franchise record.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (26-29)


The Pulaski Yankees took an early lead, but Kingsport had a big inning in the fifth, when they plated four runs and took the lead. The Yankees scored a run in the top of the sixth, but Kingsport recovered that run and then some in the later innings.

Rookie - GCL Mets (15-30)

GCL MARLINS 5, GCL METS 4 / 10 (Box)

It was a back and forth affair, but in the end, when the dust settled, the GCL Marlins came out on top. The two teams traded the lead multiple times, with the GCL Mets tying things up at 4-4 in the sixth. It took a few more innings, but in the top of the tenth, Joshua Walker allowed a run to score. The GCL Mets had the bottom of the inning to get the run back or more, but they were unable to do so.
