Minor League Baseball: Tampa Yankees at Port St. Lucie Mets Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

*All results from games played on Monday, August 7, 2017

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (43-72)

RENO 9, LAS VEGAS 4 (BOX)

Ricky Knapp’s rough season continued, as he gave up eight runs (six earned) on eleven hits in 5.2 innings to raise his ERA to an astoundingly bad 6.94. Hurt by two errors, Knapp surrendered four runs in the first and gave up another four runs in the sixth. Reno added another one off newly acquired Jamie Callahan, who gave up a run in just his second outing with Las Vegas. Cody Decker and Jayce Boyd homered in the loss.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (64-46)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (18-26 / 33-35)

ST. LUCIE 4, FLORIDA 3 (BOX)

The Mets scored on a sacrifice fly and a walk in the first and a double in the second to take a four run lead, and the pitching did just enough to hold on in a 4-3 win. Kevin Canelon made a three inning start, and Alex Palsha and Austin McGeorge combined for five innings of three run ball. Adonis Uceta, one of the few legitimate relief prospects in the Met system prior to the trade deadline, recorded the save with a pair of strikeouts. A day after being named FSL player of the month in July, Peter Alonso went 1-for-3 with a double, walk, and two RBI. He now has an impressive 163 wRC+ on the season to go with 14 HR, though it’s worth noting that he is a polished college bat in High-A.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (18-24 / 40-28)

COLUMBIA 6, CHARLESTON 4 (BOX)

Ian Strom got the Fireflies started with a solo home run in the second, and Columbia followed that up with a five run third highlighted by a two un single from Dan Rizzie. Justin Brantley and Taylor Henry made that lead stand up for eight innings comfortably, but things got a little rough in the ninth. Cameron Griffin gave up three runs on a home run to Oswaldo Cabrera, but bounced back to secure the two run victory. Andres Gimenez had a rare bad night, going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (14-32)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (16-24)

JOHNSON CITY 16, KINGSPORT 1 / 6 (BOX)

The elements mercifully cut a miserable night for Kingsport short, as the game ended after six innings in a 16-1 loss. Ronald Sanchez had his ERA balloon to 7.88, giving up six earned runs in 2.2 innings. Garrison Bryant was even worse, giving up seven earned runs in 1.1 innings, pushing his ERA over 10. Dionis Paulino drove in the only Kingsport run with a double.

Rookie - GCL Mets (12-22)

GCL METS 2, GCL CARDINALS 1 (BOX)

The GCL Mets started off the game on a high note, scoring two runs in the bottom of the first and never looking back. Guillermo Granadillo got things started with a double, scoring two batters later on a ground out from Luis Montero. Gregory Guerrero scored the eventual game winning run one batter later on a throwing error. Briam Campusano made that lead stand up with eight innings of one run ball, striking out five.
