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

SALT LAKE 5, LAS VEGAS 4 (BOX)

Las Vegas’s 9th inning rally fell short in a 5-4 loss to Salt Lake. Cody Martin was boxed around for seven hits and four runs in 4.2 innings, and Matt Purke allowed another run in the sixth that proved to be the game decider. Phillip Evans led the offense with two singles, an RBI and a steal,while Jeff McNeil (only a second baseman, but playing third base) went 1-for-4 with a walk. Peter Alonso continued to struggle, dropping his average to .174 with an 0-for-4 performance.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (45-49)

GAME 1: PORTLAND 1, BINGHAMTON 0 / 7 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies managed only two hits in their first game of the day, falling 1-0 to the Sea Dogs. Josh Allen and Champ Stuart had a double and a single, while the rest of the lineup managed only three walks. That spoiled a solid start from Mickey Jannis, who didn’t allow a run until the sixth inning. Matt Blackham logged a perfect seventh in the loss.

GAME 2: BINGHAMTON 1, PORTLAND 0 / 7 (BOX)

In the makeup of their postponed game from 4/6, Binghamton countered with a shut out of their own. It was a bullpen game, with Corey Taylor taking the start and logging three scoreless innings. Daniel Zamora, Joshua Torres, and Joe Zanghi followed with five scoreless innings of their own, setting the stage for Joey Terdoslavich’s walkoff sacrifice fly in the bottom of the seventh.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 10-15)

FORT MYERS 5, ST. LUCIE 0 (BOX)

St. Lucie’s offense was non-existent in a shutout loss to Fort Myers. Michael Gibbons wasn’t great, giving up five runs (one unearned thanks to an error from Jeremy Vasquez) in six innings. St. Lucie did manage six hits - two each from Luis Carpio, Wuilmer Becerra, and J.J Franco - but had only three at bats with RISP. Nine Mets were left on base in the loss.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 11-14)

LAKEWOOD 6, COLUMBIA 2 (BOX)

The Fireflies’ listless offense led to a 6-2 loss to the BlueClaws. Nicholas Debora gave up five runs in five innings, putting Columbia in a hole they couldn’t get out of. The Fireflies managed only four hits and went 0-for-3 with runners in scoring position. Blake Tiberi had the only RBI, pushing in a run with an RBI ground out in the sixth, and another run came home on a wild pitch in the ninth.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies activated LHP Jake Simon from the 7-day disabled list.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (17-14)

BROOKLYN 5, TRI-CITY 0 (BOX)

Despite going 2-for-18 with RISP, Brooklyn managed to score five runs in a shutout victory over the ValleyCats. Jose Miguel Medina had two RBIs despite going 0-for-4, while Wagner Lagrange had a 4-for-5 day with an RBI. That was more than enough support for Jaison Vilera, who logged seven scoreless innings with nine strikeouts to lower his ERA to 1.08. Tommy Wilson and Ryley Gilliam each logged a scoreless inning to close out the game.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Ronald Sanchez assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Columbia Fireflies

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (14-11)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Rookie - GCL Mets (14-11)

GCL CARDINALS 1, GCL METS 0 (BOX)

The Met offense was shutout for nine innings before being walked off in the ninth inning in a 1-0 loss. Oscar Rojas was excellent for six innings, striking out nine and allowing only one hit and one walk. Saul Gonzalez and Brian Metoyer both logged scoreless innings in their professional debuts, but Brendan Hardy allowed three hits and a walk while recording only one out in the bottom of the ninth. The Mets, meanwhile, only managed five hits and didn’t get a runner past second base.
