*All results from games played on July 9, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (42-48)

NO GAME (ALL STAR BREAK)

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (43-44)

NO GAME (ALL STAR BREAK)

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 6-11)

CHARLOTTE 3, ST. LUCIE 2 (BOX)

St. Lucie’s late rally fell short in a 3-2 loss. Anthony Kay was decent, striking out five and walking two over six innings of two run ball. He departed with the Mets in a 2-1 hole, and Seth Davis allowed another run to score in the seventh. That run proved crucial, as the Mets scored a run in the ninth on an RBI single from Luis Carpio. Andres Gimenez followed with a single to put the tying run 90 feet away, but J.J. Franco grounded out to end the game. Stephen Villines continued his excellent season in the loss, working 1.1 innings without allowing a baserunner and striking out one.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 8-10)

COLUMBIA 2, CHARLESTON 1 (BOX)

Despite having no RBIs, the Fireflies topped Charleston 2-1. Chris Viall was excellent, allowing only one run over six innings of work while striking out seven. Both runs for the Fireflies scored in the fifth a HBP and a double put runner son second and third. A wild pitch and a throwing error scored those two runners, and the Fireflies had a lead without an RBI. Darwin Ramos closed things out with three innings of scoreless relief, striking out three for his first save of the season.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (12-12)

STATEN ISLAND 2, BROOKLYN 1 (BOX)

Jason Vargas had a great rehab start, but the Cyclone’s offense was non-existant and the bullpen blew the lead late in a 2-1 loss. Vargas went six innings, striking out nine and allowing only one hit. Joshua Walker replaced him in the seventh and gave up two solo home runs, despite pitching well enough to strike out five. Meanwhile, the Cyclones channeled their inner Mets and went 2-for-11 with RISP and left eight men on base, managing only one run in the fourth inning on an RBI double from Anthony Dirocie.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (10-8)

BLUEFIELD 10, KINGSPORT 9 (BOX)

Four Kingsport errors led to six unearned runs, three of them in the final two innings, as Kingsport suffered an ugly 10-9 loss. Matt Cleveland had a rough start, walking four over 4.2 innings, and he was hurt by three errors, two from Shervyen Newton and two on one play in the fifth. The Kingsport offense was equal to the challenge, however, with a grand slam from Raul Beracierta leading a nine run effort. The Mets took a four run lead to the bottom of the ninth, but an error by shortstop L.A. Woodard opened the door for four runs to score against Eric Villanueva, two of which were unearned. Ivan Jean record two outs and two intentional walks in the bottom of the tenth before walking in the winning run.

Rookie - GCL Mets (12-7)

GCL METS 1, GCL MARLINS 0 (BOX)

It was a pitcher’s duel in the GCL, with the Mets topping the Marlins 1-0. The only run came on an on RBI single from Edinson Valdez in the second, after which the Mets managed only two more hits. The pitching covered the offensive deficiencies, however, with Ramon Guzman and Ronnie Taylor Jr. combining for a shutout despite six walks and only six strikeouts.
