Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (25-35)

NEW ORLEANS 16, LAS VEGAS 4 (Box)

It was a big easy win for New Orleans in Las Vegas rapped out 12 extra base hits in blowing out Las Vegas, plating 16 runs on 20 hits total. Aaron Laffey took the brunt of the abuse from the Baby Cakes batters, allowing 15 hits and 14 runs (12 earned) in three innings. Already down 8-1, Laffey allowed the first six batters to reach in the top of the fourth before his merciful removal. Backup catcher Jeff Glenn pitched two scoreless innings, bouncing back from an earlier mop-up appearance this year where he surrendered six runs in one inning. Dominic Smith was 3-for-5 with a double in defeat.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed CF Matthew den Dekker on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to June 4, 2018. After the game, Aaron Laffey retired.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned LHP P.J. Conlon to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (32-26)

BINGHAMTON 4, HARRISBURG 0 (Box)

Binghamton bucked the organizational trend by posting a victory on Wednesday. Peter Alonso snapped a 0-13 skid in the top of the first, staking the Rumble Ponies to an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first with his Eastern League-leading 15th home run. Joseph Dunn and David Roseboom made that slim lead stand through seven, as Binghamton managed only two more hits off of Kyle McGowin. The Ponies got some insurance in the eighth off of the Senators bullpen, with Levi Michael striking the biggest blow with a clutch two run single.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (23-30)

TAMPA 4, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

St. Lucie learned today that relievers Matt Blackham, Matt Pobereyko and the (recently promoted) Ryder Ryan got named to the Florida State League all-star game. Unfortunately, the Mets couldn’t get a lead to that bullpen Wednesday, as the Tarpons took an early 3-0 lead against Michael Gibbons. The—stop us if you’ve read these words elsewhere—slumping Mets offense was unable to respond. St. Lucie did avoid the shutout by recording three ninth inning singles, and did manage to bring the tying run to the plate, but Ian Strom struck out and Anthony Dimino grounded out to quell any rally.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (28-28)

CHARLESTON 6, COLUMBIA 5 (Box)

As the Mets wrapped up the 2018 draft yesterday, last year’s fourth round selection, Tony Dibrell, put up another solid start, striking out seven over six solid innings. Dibrell surrendered a home run in the third, and his struggles with command let to another run in the fifth, but he was otherwise impressive. He departed to a 2-2 tie, but Charleston knocked around Darwin Ramos for four runs in the top of the seventh. Quinn Brodey brought the Colaflies halfway back with his sixth home run in the bottom of the frame, and Ali Sanchez doubled and scored in the bottom of the eighth, but Kyle Zurak came on to record the final four outs for the RiverDogs and keep Columbia from tying the game.
