MLB Futures Game


  • SS Andres Gimenez: 0-2
  • PH-1B Peter Alonso: 1-2, R, HR, RBI; Alonso’s home run had a launch angle of 46 degrees and was measured with a 113.6 MPH exit velocity

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (45-49)


It was, uh, not a good night to be a Las Vegas 51s pitcher.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (43-48)


Levi Michael managed to knock four hits on the afternoon and Jhoan Urena slugged his sixth homer of the year, but neither were able to stop the Rumble Ponies from losing their fourth game in a row. Making his Double-A debut, Harol Gonzalez allowed five runs on eight hits, walking two and striking out five over six innings. When he left, the score was a very manageable 5-3. Kevin Taylor made it 5-4 with an RBI double in the top of the seventh, but that would be as close as the Rumble Ponies would get. The bullpen imploded in the eighth, as Stephen Nogosek and David Roseboom combined to allow four runs. Josh Allen drove in a run in the ninth, but nothing more would come of it, and Binghamton was swept for the sixth time this season.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/10-13)


The St. Lucie Mets completed their weekend-series sweep of the Palm Beach Cardinals thanks to a strong effort on the part of left-hander Anthony Kay. Luis Carpio put St. Lucie on the board in the first, leading off the game with his seventh home run of the season and Ali Sanchez followed shortly thereafter with an RBI double. The Cardinals tied the game up at 2-2 in the fourth when Michael Paez committed a throwing error that eventually led to a pair of runs scoring, but Dale Burdick tripled in the fifth and was driven in by Carpio to give St. Lucie the lead for good.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/10-12)


Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (16-13)


Decked out in Black Panther uniforms, the Cyclones offense was super charged by the spirits of Wakanda. Eight men came to bat that inning, with Chase Chambers driving in two and Wagner Lagrange driving in one. The Brooklyn offense did not let up either, as Jose Medina added a run in the fourth and Kevin Hall added another in the seventh. The Crosscutters were able to get on the board, scoring a pair of runs off of Kyle Wilson, but were unable to do much damage against him or the Brooklyn bullpen.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (13-10)


Another wild one in Kingsport. Kingsport took an early lead, then Elizabethon tied things up, then Kingsport took the lead again, then Elizabethton took the lead, then Kingsport took it back, then Elizabethton took it back, and that was that. The bullpen letting the team down was the big story here, as Andrew Ryan, Luis Silva, and Nelson Leon combined to allow nine runs in the game’s last three innings.

ROSTER ALERT: C Robby Kidwell assigned to Kingsport Mets from GCL Mets.

Rookie: GCL Mets (14-10)


Ramon Guzman labored through most of his outing, allowing five hits and walking five, but when he left the mound in the fifth, the GCL Mets were only behind 3-1. His replacement, Boris Sanchez, allowed an inherited runner to score on a wild pitch, and but things would just get worse from there. In the sixth, Sanchez and Yadiel Flores combined to allow four more runs to score. They got one run back, but were unable to dig themselves completely out of the hole they found themselves in.
