Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (45-52)

SALT LAKE 11, LAS VEGAS 5 (Box)

After a solid second start in Vegas, it was another rough PCL night for Nabil Crismatt in Salt Lake City, as the Bees got to him for six runs in the bottom of the second. The 51s made an effort to get back into it, answering back with two in the top of the third on a Kevin Kaczmarski double and a Zack Borenstein RBI single, but Ian Krol threw a little more gas on the fire, allowing the Bees to add three more runs in the fourth to put the game out of reach for Vegas.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (45-50)

PORTLAND 2, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)

The Sea Dogs slipped by the Rumble Ponies 2-1 Wednesday. Binghamton answered an early Portland run in the second when Tim Tebow doubled and came around to score on a Joey Wong single. The Ponies missed a golden opportunity to go ahead in the third when they loaded the bases, only to see Josh Allen and Tebow strike out to leave them that way. That would be their last chance, as the Sea Dogs went ahead in the fourth, and the Ponies would manage only one hit the rest of the way. Scott Copeland was the hard luck loser, going seven innings while striking out seven.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (37-56 / 10-16)

FORT MYERS 13, ST. LUCIE 7 (Box)

St. Lucie lost a wild one to the Miracle yesterday. David Peterson’s struggles in Advanced A continued, as he put the Mets in an early hole by surrendering four runs in the first on a hit by pitch and five singles. St. Lucie fought back, with a Raphael Gladu two-run home run getting them on the board. The Mets cut the lead to one on three separate occasions, but could never quite get over the hump before Ft. Myers put up five in the eighth to put what was an 8-7 game out of reach.

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (18-14)

BROOKLYN 11, TRI-CITY 5 (Box)

Jose Miguel Medina was nothing short of funky all night, getting the Cyclones started in the first with a walk and a stolen base, coming around to score one of three in the first for Brooklyn. Tri-City answered back with three of their own in the bottom of the frame, but Medina wasn’t close to done. His three-run homer in the fourth capped a four-run inning that put Brooklyn ahead to stay, then capped his evening with a second homer in the eighth as the Cyclones won riding away.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (15-11)

KINGSPORT 8, PRINCETON 4 (Box)

The Mets rode the longball to a comfortable victory over Princeton yesterday, clouting three home runs in their victory. Mark Vientos had a big day, singling in a run in the Mets’ four-run third inning, then going back-to-back with Gavin Garay in the fifth. While 2018 first round pick Jarred Kelenic had a rare quiet day with the bat, he made his presence known with two outfield assists, gunning out Wander Franco trying to stretch a leadoff single into a double in the fourth, then cutting down a runner at the plate trying to score on a sacrifice fly in the fifth.

Rookie - GCL Mets (15-11)

GCL METS 6, GCL ASTROS 3 (Box)

Both the GCL Mets and the New York Mets felt the joy of the presence of Yoenis Cespedes in the lineup—and appearing at first base, to boot. Cespedes hit a go-ahead three-run home run in the fifth inning to stake the Mets to a 4-3 lead that they would extend in the seventh on RBI doubles by Ronny Mauricio and Stanley Consuegra. The Astros would load the bases in the bottom of the ninth, but Malky Mena came out to record a fly out to lock down the victory.
