*All results from games played on June 25, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (33-44)

TACOMA 6, LAS VEGAS 1 (BOX)

Long time National Ross Detwiler shut down the 51s in a 6-1 loss. Joss Prevost was roughed up for six runs in six innings, striking out only two and giving up seven hits and three walks. Ian Krol and Buddy Baudmann didn’t allow any more runs in relief, but Jeff McNeil managed the only RBI with a single in the eighth inning. Peter Alonso went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in the loss.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Chris Flexen optioned to Triple-A

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (36-38)

BINGHAMTON 10, TRENTON 1 (BOX)

Binghamton scored two in the first and never looked back, blowing out Trenton 10-1. Levi Michael and John Mora both homered, while Tim Tebow had a bases-clearing double, though he also struck out three times. That was more than enough support for Scott Copeland, who was excellent for seven shutout innings, striking out nine. Ryder Ryan finished the game, allowing the only Trenton run in the top of the ninth while striking out one over two innings of work.

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Josh Prevost assigned to the Las Vegas 51s

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 3-2)

COLUMBIA 6, LEXINGTON 3 (BOX)

The Fireflies topped Lexington thanks to three home runs in a 6-3 win. Blake Tiberi, Scott Manea, and Quinn Brodey all went deep, while Edgardo Fermin had a big day of his own with two doubles and a single. Yeizo Campos allowed lots of baserunners in his four inning start, but navigated through to allow only one run. Darwin Ramos allowed two runs in the middle innings, and Conner O’Neil closed out the game with four strikeouts in two innings.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (8-3)

LOWELL 11, BROOKLYN 2 (BOX)

It was a laugher in Brooklyn, as every Cyclones pitcher gave up at least one run in an 11-2 loss. Kyle Wilson got things started poorly, allowing four runs in three innings before being lifted for Trent Johnson. Johnson allowed two runs in an inning, as did Seth Davis and Joel Huertas. Ronald Sanchez allowed a cherry-on-the-top run in a his 2.1 innings of work, but the game was far out of reach by this point. Ross Adolph had the only notable offensive performance, going 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Adam Hill assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (6-1)

KINGSPORT 9, GREENEVILLE 6 (BOX)

Kingsport won a nice game thanks to a big offensive day, topping Greeneville 9-6. Anthony Dirocie was the offensive star, going 3-for-4 with three runs. L.A. Woodard also had a big day, going 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles and four RBI. The pitching was less than stellar, as Liam Mcall allowed four runs in a 2.2 inning start, and Luis Silva allowed an additional run in the fourth. Joshua Walker and Andrew Mitchell were much better, however, and their four innings of scoreless relief kept the Mets in the game long enough to make a comeback.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Andrw Mitchell assigned to Kingsport Mets

ROSTER ALERT: C Matthew Foley assigned to Kingsport Mets from Brooklyn Cyclones

Rookie - GCL Mets (4-3)

GCL NATIONALS 5, GCL METS 1 (BOX)

A rough third inning for Michel Otanez was the Mets’ undoing, as they lost to the GCL Nationals 5-1. Otanez struck out a healthy number of batters, recording six punch outs in only 3.2 innings. That came with three walks and six hits (unfortunate BABIP luck), leading to a four run third for the Nationals. The rest of the Mets’ pitching staff performed much better, but the offense went 1-for-13 with RISP and failed to capitalize on nine hits and a walk. On the bright side, Jered Kelenic continued to make a joke of the league, going 3-for-4 with a double and raising his average to .615.
