Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (43-70)


Oklahoma City controlled most of this game. The 51s felt listless for most of this- and in a way, they were, as Pedro Lopez was ejected in the first inning, leaving the team without their manager. Travis Taijeron doubled, his 30th of the season, in the fourth and managed to come home to score, but that was all the 51s could do against former all-star Justin Masterson. Donovan Hand, meanwhile, had no such luck, getting beat around by the OKC Dodgers to the tune of five runs over six innings. The 51s struck again in the seventh, and then really made things interesting in the eighth. Travis Taijeron walked to lead the inning off and Phil Evans followed that with a single, leading Oklahoma City to replace reliever Walker Buehler. The new pitcher, Jacob Rhame, left a big fat one for Cody Decker down and away, and the Jew bid adieu to that miscue, socking it over the left field wall for a game-tying three-run homer. The 51s and the Dodgers both managed one base runner apiece in each half of the ninth, but neither team was able to score, necessitating extra innings. Josh Edgin allowed a single in the top of the tenth, prompting Kevin McGowan to relieve him. After running a 3-0 count to Trayce Thompson, the right-hander threw a fastball down the heart of the plate. Thompson did not take and instead tattooed the ball 433 feet off the center field wall, driving in a run and giving Oklahoma City a 6-5 lead. In the bottom of the inning, Xorge Carrillo knocked a two-out single, putting the game-winning run on base. Cody Decker came within inches of plastering a first-pitch fastball for a walk off home run, but the pitch went foul by about ten feet. After a few more pitches, he struck out to end the game, giving the 51s their 70th loss of the season.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (63-46)


Marcos Molina looked good for most of the afternoon- well, not really, as he as he is still only sitting 89-91 MPH- but all that was ruined with one poor inning. Binghamton took a quick lead, with Champ Stuart and Luis Guillorme both knocking in runs in the second, but Molina ran into trouble in the sixth and coughed up the Rumble Pony lead. The right-hander allowed three singles, and then gave up a grand slam to Drew Ward, putting Binghamton behind the eight ball. To their credit, the Rumble Ponies immediately fought back, putting up a five spot in the top of the seventh. All with two outs, Stuart doubled to drive in two and Luis Guillorme made Mr. Guillorme a proud papa by belting a 3-1 pitch right down Broadway for three-run homer over the left field wall. Tim Peterson pitched two innings, and Cory Burns pitched the ninth to earn his sixteenth save.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (17-25/50-60)

ST. LUCIE 4, TAMPA 3 / 11 (Box)

The two New York affiliates down in Florida played one hell of a ballgame. St. Lucie drew first blood when Jhoan Urena drove in Michael Paez in the bottom of the first. Tampa tied things up in the third when Sharif Othman hit a solo homer, but St. Lucie took the lead once again in the bottom of the frame when Tim Tebow singled in a run and Jose Garcia drew a walk with bases loaded. The Yankees tied things once again in the sixth, and the game would stay tied until the eleventh inning. After getting two quick outs, reliever Matt Frawley walked Michael Paez and then intentionally walked Peter, bringing Jhoan Urena to the plate with the winning run on second. He connected on a pitch right down the middle for a groundball down the left field line, allowing Paez to put on the burners and come around to score.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (16-25/56-53)



Chase Ingram pitched well, but the GreenJackets were just slightly better. The right-hander allowed three runs over six innings, but Augusta limited the Colaflies to just two runs. Stephen Woods allowed a run in the third when Dan Rizzie knocked in Jacob Zanon, and Nolan Riggs allowed a run in the sixth when J.J. Franco knocked in Vinny Siena, but closer Patrick Ruotolo shut them down in the seventh.



If things were bad for the Colaflies in game one, things were a lot worse in game two. Making his second start with the team, Martin Anderson allowed six runs- five earned- in just three plus innings. Keaton Aldridge replaced him and didn’t fare much better, allowing two runs in an inning plus. Matt Blackham was the only Columbia pitcher who pitcher decently, throwing a scoreless inning. Blackham could’ve given up ten runs for all it mattered, as the Colafly offense must’ve forgotten there was a game going on, managing only three hits.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Darwin Ramos assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Brooklyn Cyclones.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (14-31)


The long slog that is the 2017 Brooklyn Cyclones season continues. Colin Holderman made his second rehab start after missing most of the 2017 season with a torn labrum, and the right-hander was a bit better this time around, allowing two runs- one earned- over three innings. Down by two, the Cyclones actually tied things up in the fifth without actually putting wood on ball, very symbolic of their season. They scored their first run when Cecilio Aybar and Walter Rasquin successfully executed a double steal, with Aybar stealing home, and their second when Lowell reliever Enmanuel De Jesus uncorked a wild pitch, allowing Rasquin to score from third. The Spinners quickly recaptured the lead, putting Brooklyn behind once again, but they weren’t able to tie things up a second time. They came close in the eighth, with Quinn Brodey stealing second and third to put himself 90 feet away, but Scott Manea came up short to end the inning.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jose Geraldo assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Kingsport Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: 1B Jeremy Vasquez assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Kingsport Mets.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (18-24)

It certainly was a crazy one down in Tennessee. After the Bristol Pirates took an early two-run lead, Kingsport came roaring back. They scored three runs in the third, and four runs in the fourth, turning their deficit into a big lead. But, just as soon as the tide of the game turned in their favor, the baseball gods went back to favoring Bristol, as they plated six runs in the fifth to retake the lead. The Mets tied it up in the bottom of the inning, and then went ahead to take the lead. They’d go on to win the ballgame, sweeping Bristol.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Ryan McAuliffe assigned to Kingsport Mets from GCL Mets

Rookie - GCL Mets (11-21)



The GCL Marlins scored a pair off of Dedniel Nunez early, and even without the insurance run in the fourth, that would turn out to be all they needed, as the GCL Mets managed only one run. The GCL Mets had a chance in the top of the fourth to tie things up at 2-2, putting men on the corners, but Raul Beracierta grounded into a double play to end the inning and the GCL Mets failed to even notch another hit after the inning.



Things went a little better for the GCL Mets in the second game of yesterday’s doubleheader. The game was a back-and-forth affair, with both teams taking the lead at least once. Down by a run in the sixth, Pedro Ventura doubled in Kenny Hernandez to tie things up at 5-5, and in the seventh, with the bases loaded, Kenneth Bautista laced a single into left to walk thing off.
