*All results from games played on Thursday, August 24, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52-79)


The 51s never led in this game, as Mitch Atkins gave up three runs in the first and one more in the fourth. Beck Wheeler gave up two in the sixth to put Vegas down 6-0, and they were only able to cut that lead in half when they plated three runs in the bottom of the seventh. Xorge Carillo singled in a run, and Jhoan Urena tripled to score two. But that was it for the team’s scoring on the night.

P Neil Wagner: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (76-52)


Marcos Molina was pretty solid on the mound last night, allowing a pair of runs over seven innings of work. His counterpart, Portland right-hander Kevin McAvoy, wasn’t too shabby himself, allowing only one run over seven-plus innings. The Rumble Ponies had plenty of opportunities- including a leadoff L.J. Mazzilli double in the ninth inning- but they couldn’t seal the deal. They left ten men on base and went 0-10 with runners in scoring position.

ROSTER ALERT: 1B Peter Alonso assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from St. Lucie Mets.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (24-36/57-71)


CHARLOTTE 10, ST. LUCIE 3 / 7 (Box)

The early innings of the first game of the doubleheader was very much back and forth. Harol Gonzalez put up a zero in the top of the first, Blake Bivens put up a zero in the bottom of the first. St. Lucie scored two runs in the top of the second, Charlotte scored two runs in the bottom of the second. St. Lucie scored a run in the top of the third, Charlotte scored a run in the bottom of the third. The Stone Crabs finally took the lead in the bottom of the fifth, and then turned the game into a blowout in the sixth, when Tom Gorzelanny gave up six runs.



The doubleheader didn’t get any better for St. Lucie in the second game. Kevin Canelon gave up four runs, three of them earned, all in the bottom of the fourth inning and did not record an out in that frame. Recent trade acquisitions Gerson Bautista and Stephen Nogosek fared much better, though, and St. Lucie’s pitchers totaled 10 strikeouts in the seven-inning affair.

P Stephen Nogosek: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (25-35/65-63)


Justin Brantley did not have a good first inning. He allowed five runs between recording the first and second out of the inning. He wasn’t much better in the second, giving up four more runs. Taylor Henry gave up a run in the fifth for good measure, but one run or ten more, it wouldn’t have mattered, as Drive starter Bryan Mata and their bullpen blanked the Colaflies.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (15-46)

Hudson Valley 5, Brooklyn 2 (Box)

The Cyclones took the lead initially, with Carl Stajduhar driving in Quinn Brodey, but as has been the case with Brooklyn for the entire season, they let the lead slip away. Hudson Valley scored three unearned runs scored in the sixth, taking the lead and handing Brooklyn their thirteenth loss in a row.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (27-32)


Ezequiel Zabaleta got touched up early, allowing four runs in the first and two in the second. Kingsport was down, but they were not out, as Wagner Lagrange drove in a run in the bottom of the first and Gavin Garay and Anthony Dirocie went yard back-to-back in the second, cutting the deficit in half. Zabaleta gave up another run in the third, but Kingsport made up some more ground by plating three more runs in the third, making it a 7-6 ballgame. Wagner Lagrange struck again in the fifth, swatting a solo homer and tying things up, but it didn’t last long, as Blueport left fielder Mc Gregory Contreras hit one of his own to put the Blue Jays back on top. They ended up scoring a few more runs, and while Kingsport made a valiant effort- Juan Uriarte drove in a pair with his fifth homer of the season and Gavin Garay followed that with a double- they were not able to get over the hump.

Rookie - GCL Mets (17-31)
