Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (33-43)

LAS VEGAS 4, RENO 3 (Box)

Peter Alonso did not go HAM, but the 51s got the win nonetheless. After matching former Met prospect Matt Koch zero for zero early on, Drew Gagnon gave up three runs in the fourth, giving Reno the lead. Koch, who had more or less been on cruise control, hit a speed bump in the seventh, allowing a two-run homer to Christian Colon. Joey Krehbiel finished out the inning, but the 51s faced a tough task ahead of them in the eighth and ninth. In the eighth, they faced a rehabbing Randall Delgado. They passed that test, scratching out a run and tying the game. In the ninth, they faced former All-Star Neftali Feliz. Once again, the offense came through, with Zach Borenstein clubbing a two-out double into left to walk off the game for Las Vegas, taking three of the four games from their intrastate rivals, giving them another win in the Silver State Diamond Challenge between the two teams.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-38)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/0-3)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Stephen Villines assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Columbia Fireflies.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Alex Palsha retired.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (36-35/2-2)

COLUMBIA 5, LEXINGTON 3 (BOX)

The Coleflies scored four of their five runs via the long ball, taking the first game in their series against the Legends. Raphael Gladu, Edgardo Fermin, Quinn Brodey, and Blake Tiberi all went yard, with each homer being a solo shot. Three of the four were hit off of Lexington starter Garrett Davila and the other was hit off of reliever Garrett Suchey. Coming into the afternoon, Columbia had only slugged 29 home runs- fewest in the South Atlantic League- so this additional four represents a considerable percentage of their total home runs for the year. On the mound, Zac Grotz was solid once again, pitching another eight innings.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (8-2)

BROOKLYN 1, LOWELL 0 (BOX)

A Wagner Lagrange double in the third ended up not only the only run that Brooklyn scored, but the only run that was scored in the entire two-hour, twenty-three-minute contest. Spinners starter Alexander Montero allowed a handful of hits and walked two, but was able to mitigate the damage, Lagrange’s RBI double notwithstanding. His replacements, Andrew Politi and Harrison Cooney, were just as stingy, allowing a pair of baserunners in their three innings. On the Cyclones’ side of the ledger, Jaison Vilera was fantastic, tossing six shutout innings. Yeudy Colon and Ryan Selmer had his back and held it down, completing their third shutout in ten games.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (5-1)

JOHNSON CITY 12, KINGSPORT 9 (BOX)

It was bound to happen eventually: the Kingsport Mets lost their first game of the 2018 season. It was a fun streak, but all good things must come to an end. It was a wacky back-and-forth affair that saw the lead change hands multiple times, but after the Johnson City Cardinals put up a three spot in the seventh off of Daison Acosta, Kingsport would not regain the lead. Of note, Matt Cleveland made his 2018 debut. The $300,000 overslot signee from the 2016 draft walked six batters, continuing a streak of eight consecutive appearances with at least one walk- dating back to the 2017 season- and giving him at least one walk in 13 of his 15 professional appearances between his first in 2016 to yesterday.

Rookie: GCL Mets (3-2)

GCL METS 11, GCL MARLINS 2 / 8 (BOX)

The game was completed early on account of rain, but it wouldn’t really matter as the GCL Mets were putting a hurting on the GCL Marlins. Ronny Mauricio hit his first professional home run, a big fly to right field. Wilmer Reyes went a perfect 4-4 and even got on base a fifth time via HBP for good measure. Jarred Kelenic logged another multi-hit game, his second in as many games. Sebastian Espino hit a pair of doubles and continued showing off his burgeoning power. All in all, a good afternoon.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Saul Gonzalez assigned to GCL Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Brendan Hardy assigned to GCL Mets.
