Triple A: Las Vegas 51s (43-48)

LAS VEGAS 5, ALBUQUERQUE 4 (Box)

Las Vegas ran out to an early 3-0 lead, with a double by Colton Plaia, and singles by Kevin Kaczmarski and Kivlehan doing the damage in the bottom of the second. Starter Cody Martin cruised through the first five innings, but imploded in the sixth. He gave up a two run home run — seeing their lead shrink to 3-2 — then allowed a walk and a double to put runners on second and third with one out. Matt Purke came in and walked his first batter to load the bases. He nearly got out of it unscathed, but a throwing error on a would-be double play ball by Luis Guillorme forced two runs in to tie the game. The 51s answered immediately, as an error by the Isotopes forced in the game-tying run in the bottom of the frame. Peter Alonso would put them up for good with a home run off Brooks Pounders in the bottom of the eighth.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RHP Chris Beck outright to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (43-45)

AKRON 3, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

All of the Akron offense came in the bottom of the first. Mickey Jannis allowed a two-run double and an RBI single to back-to-back batters, putting the Rumble Ponies in a 3-0 hole quickly. He recovered to throw six very good innings, surrendering just two hits the rest of the way. The Binghamton offense managed to collect ten hits, but they were kept off the board until the eighth inning. A Joey Terdoslavich single drove in the first run, and a Jhoan Urena ground out made it 3-2 in the top of the ninth, but they could not complete the comeback.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/7-13)

GAME ONE

CHARLOTTE 6, ST. LUCIE 0 (7)(Box)

Game one of the today’s doubleheader was a rough one for all things St. Lucie. David Peterson really wore one, surrendering eleven hits and six runs (five earned) before being lifted in the sixth. The offense was completely shut down, as they scattered five base runners (three hits, and two walks) through the seven inning loss.

GAME TWO

CHARLOTTE 4, ST. LUCIE 0 (7) (Box)

Game two of the doubleheader was not much better for St. Lucie. They had the same amount of hits (three), but did accrue one more base runner than they did in the first game of the day, due to their three walks. The pitching was a little better, but their offense was completely shut down yet again.

ROSTER MOVE: 1B Anderson Bohorquez assigned to GCL Mets from St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER MOVE: RHP Michael Gibbons assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (43-43/9-11)

HAGERSTOWN 6, COLUMBIA 0 (Box)

Tony DiBrell had a weird game in this one. He gave up one earned run — a ground out in the second inning — and was victimized by errors through the rest of his outing, but two of those were on him. A runner was put on third base, and eventually scored, due to a throwing error by DiBrell. He surrendered one run in the fifth on an Edgardo Fermin throwing error, and put a runner on third after an errant pick off throw — that run eventually scored on a sacrifice fly. DiBrell did not pitch poorly, but his own poor fielding came back to bite him. Columbia was totally shut down, as they had just four base runners in the loss.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (13-13)

BROOKLYN 6, ABERDEEN 0 (Box)

This was a pretty cut and dry win for Brooklyn. Jaison Vilera was excellent, allowing just four base runners and striking out nine through seven innings. Chandler Avant got them on the board in the second inning with a double, and Walter Rasquin drove him home with a single. A Nick Meyer double play chased a run home in the top of the third, and a Wagner Lagrange sacrifice fly did the same in the seventh. Brian Sharp finished off the scoring with a two-run single in the ninth. Overall, this was a pretty easy win for the Cyclones.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (12-9)

GREENEVILLE 5, KINGSPORT 4 (Box)

Kingsport’s offense — outside of the throwing error that put their first run on the board in the second inning — was dependent on the long ball. Shervyen Newton and first round pick Jarred Kelenic continued their torrid starts to their seasons, as each of them went deep in this one. The Kingsport offense was pretty quiet outside of them, as the rest of the lineup had just four hits combined. Starter Nate Peden really struggled in this one, hitting two batters and allowing nine hits and five runs in just four innings. The bullpen got in an out of trouble but stayed clean, but the offense was just not able to overcome the deficit.

ROSTER MOVE: RHP Willy Taveras assigned to Kingsport Mets from GCL Mets.

Rookie: GCL Mets (13-8)

GCL CARDINALS 12, GCL METS 2 (Box)

Jurgen Jimenez was a very hard-luck loser in this game. He was far from perfect, but he allowed just four base runners in his five innings. He departed the game with the Mets trailing 2-1, and the wheels quickly fell off from there. A porous display from both the bullpen and the defense saw the 2-1 deficit Jimenez left with balloon into a 12-2 loss. The bullpen surrendered 10 runs, but managed to have just four earned runs to due three errors. The offense was all Luis Lebron, as he drove in both runs — one of which was a solo home run. Overall, it was a poor game in nearly every way for the GCL Mets.

ROSTER MOVE: SS Jaylen Palmer assigned to GCL Mets.

ROSTER MOVE: RHP Willy Taveras assigned to Kingsport Mets from GCL Mets.
