*All results from games played on Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52-78)

LAS VEGAS 8, SALT LAKE 1 (Box)

Luis Mateo and the bullpen combined to pitch a great game, and the bats came alive to the tune of almost ten runs. The 51s Reyes de Plata touched up Manny Banuelos and former Mets prospect Deolis Guerra, with all but two players notching at least one hit, and Travis Snider, Travis Taijeron, and Jayce Boyd, the 51s Reyes de Plata’s 3-4-5 hitters all going yard.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled Kevin McGowan from Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (75-50)

POSTPONED (INCLEMENT WEATHER)

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (24-34/57-69)

CHARLOTTE 6, ST. LUCIE 3 (Box)

Over the first five innings, both Nabil Crismatt and Eduar Lopez had shutouts going. In the top of the sixth, St. Lucie got things going when Jose Garcia tripled down the right field line, scoring Peter Alonso and Wuilmer Becerra. Tim Tebow also tried to score on the play, hustling all the way from first, but was thrown out at the plate. Even if Tebow had scored, it probably would not have mattered, as Crismatt imploded in the bottom of the inning, allowing four consecutive singles before being lifted and getting charged for four runs. Johnny Magliozzi allowed an additional two, giving the Stone Crabs a 6-2 lead. Tebow scored on a wild pitch in the ninth, but the run ultimately wouldn’t matter.

OH, AND DAVID WRIGHT IS ALIVE!

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent 3B David Wright on a rehab assignment to St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets activated LHP Kevin Canelon from the temporarily inactive list.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets activated CF Enmanuel Zabala from the 7-day disabled list.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (25-33/65-61)

COLUMBIA 14, GREENVILLE 7 (Box)

Not sure if South Atlantic League or Pacific Coast League. The Columbia Fireflies pummeled the Greenville Drive, scoring fourteen runs on twelve hits and ten walks. Jason Groome did not allow a hit over his three innings, but he walked six and the Colaflies were able to score three runs off of him. When he was lifted and the Drive bullpen took over, the fireworks really began. The Colaflies plated four runs off of Lukas Young, six off of Jared Oliver, and one off of Tucker Tubbs, with Ian Strom, Luis Carpio, and Brandon Brosher all going yard. Making his second start as a Firefly, Jose Medina pitched another six scoreless innings, while Aaron Ford stumbled a bit and allowed four runs, and Joseph Zanghi two.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed RHP Colin Holderman on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Aaron Ford assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Kingsport Mets.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-44)

HUDSON VALLEY 3, BROOKLYN 0 (Box)

Brooklyn lost again, their record-setting twelfth game in a row, but at least it wasn’t a total rout or a blowout. Jake Simon allowed a pair of runs over four innings, and Conner O'Neil one in the ninth. Jeurys Familia threw a 1-2-3 inning in the fifth, and flamethrower Marcel Renteria made his weekly appearance, tossing two scoreless innings.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (27-30)

PULASKI 5, KINGSPORT 4 / 12 (Box)

Kingsport scored the first run of the game, but going into the late innings, the Pulaski Yankees had a 4-1 lead. In the bottom of the eighth, Juan Uriarte drove in a run with a sac fly and Gavin Garay two on a line drive into center, tying things up a 4-4 apiece. The game went into extras, but Marbin Montijo allowed a run in the top of the twelfth. Kingsport got the tying run to third, but were unable to bring him home.

Rookie - GCL Mets (16-31)

GCL METS 7, GCL CARDINALS 5 (Box)

Virtually every time the GCL Mets scored, the GCL Cardinals scored as well. The Mets took the lead four times and the Cards tied things up four times. The Mets took the lead in the eighth when Luis Montero scored on a wild pitch, and plated some additional insurance runs in the ninth when Mark Vientos drove in Robby Kidwell and Ranfy Adon.
