*All results from games played on Friday, August 4, 2017

Triple-A Las Vegas 51s (43-69)

LAS VEGAS 3, OKLAHOMA CITY 2 (BOX)

Minor league free agent Jonathan Albaladejo has been extremely effective for the 51s so far, netting himself a 0.47 ERA and racking up 15 strikeouts in just three games. Last night was no different, as he held a potent Oklahoma City lineup in check for most of the night allowing just one run on three hits and striking out five batters.

After a Dominic Smith RBI single in the fourth, and a Travis Taijeron home run in the sixth, the 51s 2-1 lead was blown by newly acquired reliever Jamie Callahan, who allowed a home run to Max Muncy to tie the game at two runs apiece. Thus began an extra-innings marathon, which was ended in the 13th inning as Oklahoma reliever Edward Paredes hit Kevin Plawecki with a pitch, then walked Travis Taijeron, Xorge Carrillo, and Philip Evans to give Vegas a walk-off win.

Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies (62-46)

BINGHAMTON 3, HARRISBURG 2 (BOX)

A rain-shortened affair with the Senators gave Binghamton an early win Friday night. The Ponies did their offensive work in the first inning, loading the bases quickly against Harrisburg starter Greg Ross. A passed ball plated Luis Guillorme and a two-run double from Kevin Kaczmarski brought the lead to 3-0. Harrisburg answered with two runs off rehabbing pitcher Tommy Milone, who gave up a two-run home run to Yadiel Hernandez. Drew Smith relieved Milone and threw just three pitches before the game was paused then called, and recorded his first professional win as a result.

Advanced-A St. Lucie Mets (49-60)

TAMPA 9, ST. LUCIE 4 (BOX)

The Sunshine Mets seemed in control of this one early on, as a Peter Alonso RBI single and a Tim Tebow sacrifice fly gave them a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Alonso’s good night at the plate continued, as he hit a solo home run in the third. Unfortunately, the runs starting piling up in the fifth inning, as starter Andrew Church allowed three runs, two on an RBI single to Kyle Holder and another to Chris Gittens to tie the game at three. A messy outing from the bullpen would be the Mets’ undoing, as they allowed five runs in the sixth and one more in seventh.

J.C Rodriguez was aggressive on the base paths last night during the bottom of the seventh after hitting a single, stealing both second and third before scoring on a fielding error by Yankees second baseman Hoy Jun Park.

Low-A Columbia Fireflies (40-28)

GAME POSTPONED - RAIN

Friday’s game will be played as two seven-inning games tonight, starting at 5:05 PM.

Short-A Brooklyn Cyclones (14-30)

TRI-CITY 4, BROOKLYN 2 (BOX)

The Cyclones, who were renamed the “Slices” on a pizza-themed evening, dropped the rubber match of their series against the Valley Cats 4-2. 2017 first-round draft pick David Peterson made his professional debut in Brooklyn last night and pitched just one inning. Unfortunately, in that inning he allowed two singles, a wild pitch to move the runners over, and let a run score on a ground out. Jose Carlos Medina relieved Peterson and turned in a middling effort, giving up three runs on seven hits over five innings.

Rookie-A Kingsport Mets (17-24)

KINGSPORT 4, BRISTOL 3 (BOX)

Kingsport went to work early against the Bristol Pirates last night, as Hansel Moreno walked and stole a base to lead off the top of the first. Angel Manzanarez walked and Rigoberto Terrazas reached based on a fielding error, which allowed Moreno to score. The Pirates scored one run in the sixth, which the Mets answered with a ground rule RBI double from Anthony Dirocie. The Pirates pulled ahead with two runs on a double from Huascar Fuentes in the seventh, but tied the game on a solo home run from Terrazas. The game went to extras, but was ended quickly in the 10th, as Dirocie hit another double, his second of the night, to score Jeremy Vasquez and give the Mets the win.
