Catch up on all the Mets prospects in yesterday's minor league action!

Luis Guillorme - 2015 - Chris McShane Chris McShane

All results from games played Wednesday, August 30, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52-85)

SACRAMENTO 6, LAS VEGAS 1 (BOX)

Jonathan Albaladejo’s skid continued last night, as he allowed five runs, four of them earned, in just four short innings of work. The Rivercats got all of the runs that they needed in the first, as Albadejo allowed four consecutive singles, the last of which scored two runs. The lone 51s run came in the third, when John Mora doubled and was brought home by a pair of sacrifice outs.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (81-54)

BINGHAMTON 5, ERIE 1 (BOX)

The ‘Ponies beat the Seawolves and eliminated any chance they had at playoff contention. Things could not have gone better for Binghamton on either side of the ball. Micky Jannis was masterful, pitching almost eight innings of one-run ball. Peter Alonso and Kevin Kaczmarski hit back-to-back home runs in the first inning to give Binghamton all of the offense it would need to lock down the win.

Fun fact: the last two Rumble Ponies (or B-Mets) to hit back-to-back home runs were Amed Rosario and Dominic Smith in 2016.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (27-39/60-74)

FORT MYERS 4, ST. LUCIE 3 (BOX)

Gerson Bautista wore a tenth-inning loss against the Fort Myers Miracle last night, as second baseman Sean Miller hit a single and was pushed to second on a sacrifice bunt. A passed ball advanced Miller to third and a sacrifice fly brought him home, ceding the tie-breaking run to Fort Myers. Also of note was the seventh inning, during which the Mets had runners on first and second with nobody out when Michael Paez came to the plate. He grounded into a very rare 5-4-3 triple play to end the inning.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (27-38/67-66)

ASHEVILLE 4, COLUMBIA 1 (BOX)

Tourists starter Antonio Santos dominated the Fireflies on Wednesday night, striking out ten over eight innings. Columbia’s lone run came in the third inning when Arnaldo Berrios hit a triple and was brought home on a sacrifice fly by Oliver Pascual.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (19-48)

Game 1: VERMONT 3, BROOKLYN 1 (BOX)

Game 2: BROOKLYN 3, VERMONT 0 (BOX)

The Cyclones played a doubleheader to make up a postponed game. They lost the first game 3-1, sending out Chris Viall, who allowed three runs over five innings. Edgardo Fermin hit a solo home run in the fourth to give Brooklyn its only run. The second game was better, as Jose Gerardo pitched five-and-a-third innings while striking out five and allowing no runs.

Game 1

Game 2

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (28-37)

ELIZABETHON 7, KINGSPORT 3 (BOX)

Kingsport’s losing streak was extended to four as Elizabethton outscored the Mets 7-3. Starter Ezquiel Zabaleta found himself in trouble early, allowing a leadoff triple to Akil Baddoo, who was brought home for a run on a sacrifice fly. Zabaleta picked up his third loss and allowed seven runs in the process. The newly-promoted Mark Vientos had a nice night at the plate, going 2-for-5 with two doubles and pair of RBI.
