MLB: New York Mets-Media Day Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

*All results from games played on May 22, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (19-27)

LAS VEGAS 10, SACRAMENTO 7 (BOX)

This was a classic PCL affair, with six pitchers appearing for Las Vegas in a 10-7 win. P.J. Conlon had a rough third inning where he gave up five earned runs, but the bullpen was solid thereafter - Drew Smith in particular had a standout performance, striking out four in two innings. The offense was firing on all cylinders, with the majority of the lineup recording two hits and every starter recording at least one. Dominic Smith led the way, going 2-for-4 with a walk and scoring twice.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (22-20)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (17-22)

GAME 1: CLEARWATER 6, ST. LUCIE 1 / 7 (BOX)

Justin Dunn had a terrible start in game one of the double header, leading to 6-1 loss. Dunn walked three and allowed six hits in only 4.1 innings, giving up five runs and taking his third loss of the season. The offense didn’t do much either, managing only one extra base hit on a double from catcher Dan Rizzie. Dash Winningham scored the only run for St. Lucie.

GAME 2: CLEARWATER 11, ST. LUCIE 1 / 7 (BOX)

In a makeup of their rained out game from yesterday, things got even worse for St. Lucie, as they lost 11-1 in their second game of the day. Gary Cornish, Blake Taylor, and Joseph Zanghi were all roughed, each allowing three or more runs. The offense managed an early run after Andres Gimenez doubled in the first and scored on a sacrifice fly from Michael Paez, but went dormant afterwards and didn’t make this much of a contest.

ROSTER ALERT: SS Colby Woodmansee released

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (23-21)

COLUMBIA 5, WEST VIRGINIA 4 (BOX)

This one was a wild ride at the end. Down 3-0 early thanks to a rough start from Briam Campusano, the Fireflies rallied for two in the seventh (two-run double from Scott Manea) and one in the eighth (Edgardo Fermin home run) to tie the game at three. Connor O’Neil gave up an unearned run on his own error to put the Fireflies back down 4-3 in the top of the ninth. Four singles and a sacrifice fly pushed across two runs in the bottom of the ninth for Columbia however, with Hansel Moreno driving in the tying run and Edgardo Fermin notching the walk off hit.
