Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (54-86)

Tacoma had a big inning in the top of the third, scoring five runs, but the 51s were able to catch up and take the lead in the fifth. Beck Wheeler, Kelly Secrest, and Ben Rowen, held the Rainiers off the board, and it was looking like I’d be able to get to bed at a normal hour, but Kevin McGowan took the ball in the ninth and gave up a solo homer run, tying things up at 6-6 and dashing any hopes I had of an early night…or so I thought! Like a boss, Jhoan Urena walked the game off with a rocket over the left center wall.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (84-54)


Ricky Knapp, Corey Taylor, Ben Griset, and Cory Burns combined to shut out the Yard Goats, Binghamton’s twentieth shutout of the season, and their second 1-0 victory in as many days. With the win, the Rumble Ponies extended their winning streak to seven games, and their pitchers extended their scoreless streak to 21 innings. The game stayed a scoreless tie until the eighth, when David Thompson hit a line drive off of Ryan Metzler to score Patrick Biondi- a Meltzer Driver.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (29-40/62-75)


Nick Sergakis doubled in the first to give St. Lucie the lead, Colby Woodmansee and Enmanuel Zabala both drive in a run apiece in the fifth, and the four runs proved just enough for St. Lucie to win in their penultimate game of the 2017 season. The Cardinals chipped away at the Mets’ lead, scoring a pair of runs off of Nabil Crismatt in the third and fifth, and a run off of Austin McGeorge in the seventh, but St. Lucie held on. Speaking of Crismatt, the Colombian right-hander will end the season with 142 strikeouts, the most in the Florida State League

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (28-40/68-68)


Jose Medina had a time with the Colaflies since being promoted from Brooklyn, but the left-hander looked awfully hittable last night, helping Rome secure a 10-0 shutout over the Fireflies. Medina allowed six runs- five earned- in six innings, while Keaton Aldridge gave up three in the seventh and Joseph Zanghi allowed one in the eighth. Rome starter Jeremy Walker, meanwhile, blanked Columbia hitters over five innings and his replacement, Taylor Lewis, tossed four scoreless frames out of the bullpen.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (23-48)


The Cyclones got an assist from Mother Nature, as the game was called in the bottom of the fifth with Brooklyn having a 1-0 lead. Lowell starter Nick Sciortino gave Brooklyn the lead in the bottom of the fourth when he uncorked a wild pitch that allowed Dylan Snypes to score from third. David Peterson got the start for Brooklyn, his first since August 11th and his third overall. In his inning of work, he threw twelve pitches, eight for strikes, striking out two while not allowing a hit or a walk.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (29-37)


Rookie - GCL Mets (19-36)


The obvious story here is Noah Syndergaard making his first rehab start, but I’m more interested in what happened in the seventh inning. With the score tied 3-3, the GCL Mets bullpen had a meltdown of epic proportions. Dariel Rivera, the Mets’ 24th round draft pick in 2016, faced four batters and allowed three runs. His replacement, Joshua Walker, the Mets’ 37th round draft pick in 2017, faced seven batters and allowed six runs.
