Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (50-54)


Las Vegas ran out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning of this game. Peter Alonso opened the scoring with a two RBI single, and Dominic Smith followed up with a two run home run in the next at bat. Luis Guillorme drove in the final run of the inning with a fielder’s choice. That score held until the fourth inning, when Drew Gagnon surrendered three runs in the inning — the first two on a pair of singles, and the final one on a wild pitch. This was the only blemish on what was a very strong, 10 strikeout performance from Gagnon. Las Vegas added their final three runs of the game in the sixth inning, the first on a Guillorme ground out, and the final two on a wild pitch and a passed ball, respectively. The bullpen gave up a run in both the seventh and eighth inning, but the lead was far too great for Nashville to overcome.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent 2B Ty Kelly outright to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (48-55)


Despite this being a high-scoring affair, both starters held the other team in check through the first three innings of this game. Patrick Biondi got the Rumble Ponies on the board first, driving in a run with an RBI single in the top of the fourth. Scott Copeland gave up two runs in the bottom of the frame, and the scoring was on from there. A Kevin Taylor ground out and a Tomas Nido single got Binghamton the lead back in the net frame, but Copeland gave the lead back again with runs in the fifth and sixth. Nido forced the game tying run home with a double play, and Andres Gimenez put them ahead 6-4 with a two RBI single in the eighth. Ryder Ryan came in in relief in the eighth inning, and promptly surrendered a home run. They got an insurance run with a Patrick Biondi single in the top of the ninth, but Ryan could not hold the lead. He surrendered a three run home run in the bottom of the ninth, giving Binghamton the loss.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/13-19)


St. Lucie had to battle back early and often in this win. Starter Michael Gibbons was never able to find his stuff, as he gave up runs in three consecutive innings to put St. Lucie behind 3-0 by the fourth inning. The Mets came back with three runs in the bottom of the fourth, one on a Michael Paez single, and two on a throwing error. Seth Davis came in and coughed up a run in the fifth inning, though a Gene Cone sacrifice fly and a wild pitch gave St. Lucie the lead right back in the bottom of the sixth. They held that lead until the eighth inning, when Adam Atkins surrendered an RBI single to tie the game. St. Lucie would fight back one last time, when Raphael Gladu drove in the game-winning run with a walk-off single.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/14-19)


This game was over before it started. Starter Zac Grotz got rocked early on, giving up eight runs in the first two innings. While he did not get a ton of help from his defense (there were three errors by the Fireflies, and Grotz surrendered three unearned runs), he still gave up 12 hits, and generally did not miss any bats. Conner O’Neil came in after Grotz labored through five innings, and was equally as bad.

The Fireflies offense was largely invisible, outside of a great game by Zach Rheams and a Hansel Moreno home run.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (21-18)


The Cyclones offense was on fire, scoring in five innings in this win. Ross Adolph put them on the board first, hitting a solo home run in the top of the first inning. He drove in their second run as well, with an RBI single in the third. Wagner Lagrange drove in a run in the next at bat with a single of his own. They ended up really opening up the game in the next inning. A Carlos Cortes single, another Adolph single, a fielding error, and a Chase Chambers ground out chased four runs home, giving them a 7-0 lead by the end of the top of the fourth.

The game was pretty much over from there. Chambers and Brian Sharp drove in runs in the sixth inning, and the scoring was capped off by a Chase Chambers two-run home run. THe Cyclones used a myriad of pitchers, and, outside of a wild outing from Joshua Walker, and a three run outing by Ronald Sanchez, they pieced together a good performance.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (17-17)


Kingsport were outplayed in every facet in the 13-0 loss to Danville. They scattered seven hits — all singles — through the nine innings, barely threatening to score at all. Their offense was completely shut down by Danville. Starter Nate Peden got rocked, giving up six runs (though one was driven in after Peden was out of the game). The bullpen was a mixed bag — Allan Winans and Eric Villanueva had good performances, but Marbin Montijo and Brian Metoyer struggled to keep the game respectable.

Rookie: GCL METS (18-14)
