Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52-82)

SACRAMENTO 3, LAS VEGAS 2 (Box)

Jhoan Urena hit his first Triple-A home run in the second inning, a solo shot to give the 51s an early 1-0 lead. Sacramento took the lead with single runs in the fourth and the fifth, but Vegas tied it up in the top of the seventh on an RBI single from Travis Snider. Jacob Rhame—who did strike out four in two innings—surrendered the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth after an infield single and a stolen base, when he surrendered an RBI double to Chris Shaw. Vegas loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth with no one out on two walks and a hit by pitch, but Snider struck out and Jayce Boyd grounded into a game-ending double play to kill the rally.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed RHP Wilfredo Boscan on the temporarily inactive list.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RHP Kevin McGowan to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (79-54)

BINGHAMTON 5, ERIE 4 / 12 INNINGS (Box)

The playoff-bound Rumble Ponies wouldn’t go quietly in this one, rallying from a 4-2 hole to score single runs in the sixth and seventh to tie the game. The Binghamton bullpen was stellar from there, firing five scoreless innings—led by Drew Smith with two scoreless innings and three strikeouts. That set the stage for a fitting ending when L.J. Mazzilli—already three-for-five with a home run in the game—ended it with a walk-off single in the bottom of the 12th.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (27-37/60-72)

ST. LUCIE 3, FT. MYERS 2 (Box)

Yeizo Campos fell behind 2-0 three batters into the game on a Brent Rooker two-run home run, but settled down from there, allowing only two more hits the rest of the way over six solid innings. The Mets would get one back in the fourth, then take the lead in the bottom of the fifth on a two-run double by Jacob Zanon. The bullpen kept the Miracle off the board the rest of the way, allowing the Mets to secure the victory. Unfortunately, Ft. Myers was the only miracle present in St. Lucie today, as it was announced that David Wright terminated his too-brief rehab stint after experiencing continued shoulder pain.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Yeizo Campos assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (27-36/67-64)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (18-47)

BROOKLYN 2, VERMONT 1 (Box)

Make it a stunning three in a row for the suddenly surging Cyclones, as they took the opener of their series with the Lake Monsters 2-1. Brooklyn took an early 1-0 lead when Guillermo Granadillo walked and stole second, coming around to score on a Waler Rasquin RBI single. That score would hold until Vermont tied it in the top of the eighth. However, Vermont reliever Malik Jones, who looked solid in the seventh, gifted that run right back in the bottom of the frame. Walter Rasquin led off by reaching strike three wild pitch. Rasquin promptly stole second and came around with the winning run on two more Jones wild pitches.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (28-35)

BRISTOL 6, KINGSPORT 5 / 10 INNINGS (Box)

Kingsport tied up this back-and-forth affair in the top of the eighth, as 17-year-old Mark Vientos, the highly-touted second-round pick in his first day at Kingsport, singled up the middle with a runner on second. A Yondry Contreras error allowed the tying run to advance from third to home. With two outs in the top of the tenth, Kingsport was able to rally to push one run across on a Hansel Moreno double and a couple of wild pitches, but Bristol was able to one-up that, getting a walk, a double, and a single off of Edwin German to walk it off in the bottom of the tenth.

ROSTER ALERT: SS Mark Vientos assigned to Kingsport Mets from GCL Mets.

Rookie - GCL Mets (19-32)

GCL METS 8, GCL ASTROS 7 (Box)

The GCL Mets let a big lead get away in the bottom of the eighth, as the GCL Astros plated four runs to knot up what had been looking like a laugher at 7 apiece. The Mets quickly took advantage of the free runner starting at second base, as a Jose Peroza sacrified attempt turned into a bunt single, and Wilmer Reyes cashed the run in with a sacrifice fly. Luis Mateo made quick work of the Astros in the bottom of the tenth with two strikeouts and a fly out to strand the free runner and record the save.

ROSTER ALERT: 3B Jose Peroza assigned to GCL Mets from DSL Mets1.
