*All results from games played on June 19, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (42-69)

LAS VEGAS 3, OKLAHOMA CITY 2 / 10 (BOX)

Las Vegas blew a late lead but rallied in extras in to win, 3-2. Drew Gagnon was excellent, striking out seven over seven innings and allowing only one run. He was supported with a first inning RBI double from Jeff McNeil and an RBI single from Patrick Kivlehan in the sixth. Gagnon departed with a 2-1 lead, but Drew Smith coughed up the lead in a rough eighth inning. Jacob Rhame kept things tied in the ninth, and Jeff McNeil drove in the game inning run in the top of the tenth with a groundout that turned into an error.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (34-35)

TRENTON 7, BINGHAMTON 3 (BOX)

Scott Copeland was roughed up in his start, leading to a 7-3 loss. Copeland lasted only 5.2 innings, giving up six runs on ten hits and two walks. He was hurt by an error from Levi Michael, but he was getting boxed around all night regardless. David Roseboom allowed an additional run to score, but it proved meaningless. Josh Allen led off the game with a home run, but the only other offense Binghamton put together came from Tim Tebow, who went 2-for-4 with two doubles and two RBI.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-39)

DUNEDIN 7, ST. LUCIE 4 (BOX)

St. Lucie kept things competitive in the middle innings, but Gabriel Llanes and Matt Pobereyko imploded late in the game, leading to a 7-4 loss. Andres Gimenez had a standout offensive performance, logging two doubles, a walk, and his 23rd steal of the year. Gabriel Llanes was mediocre, allowing four runs over 5.1 innings and striking out only one. Matt Pobereyko entered and escaped the jam in the sixth, but he was unable to record an out in the seventh and gave up three runs. That put the Mets in a three run hole that they couldn’t escape.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33)

NO GAME (ALL-STAR BREAK)

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (4-1)

BROOKLYN 7, HUDSON VALLEY 5 (BOX)

Brooklyn scored in each of the last four innings to rally for a 7-5 win. Ryan McAuliffe didn’t make it out of the fifth, allowing two runs in 4.1 innings of work. In the sixth, Joel Huertas allowed another two runs while recording only one out, and Yeudy Colon allowed another run in the eight. Thankfully, the Cyclones scored one in the fifth to tie the game at two, one in the sixth, two in the seventh to take a 5-4 lead, and two more in the eighth to retake the lead at 7-5.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (1-0)

KINGSPORT 7, PRINCETON 3 (BOX)

Kingsport scored two runs in the first, added two more in the second and never looked back in a season-opening, 7-3 win. Jose Moreno had a great start, working around one hiccup in the second where he gave up two runs and striking out six over six innings. He allowed only one hit and didn’t walk a batter. On the offensive side, Yoel Romero started the season off with a bang, leading off the bottom of the first with a home run. Shervyen Newton had the biggest performance of the day, going 3-for-4 and falling a home run short of the cycle.

Rookie: GCL Mets (1-1)

GCL MARLINS 6, GCL METS 5 (BOX)

The GCL Mets jumped out to an early lead, but the Marlins rallied in the middle innings before handing the Mets a 6-5, walkoff loss. Hector Rodriguez was the primary culprit, allowing three runs in two innings of work and handing the Marlins a 5-4 lead. Ronny Mauricio doubled and scored in the top of the eight to tie things up, but Boris Sanchez coughed up the game-deciding run in the bottom of the ninth.
