*All results from games played on July 2, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (40-44)


Buddy Bauman was bailed out by the offense, as the 51s rallied for five runs in the eighth to top Salt Lake. Chris Flexen had a great start, tossing six scoreless innings and striking out six and departing with a three run lead. Bauman imploded, however, allowing three runs without recording an out in the top of the seventh. Home runs from Zach Borenstein and Ty Kelly and doubles from Jeff McNeil and Luis Guillorme produced five runs two innings later however, and Jacob Rhame worked around a walk to lock down the save.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (39-42)


The Rumble Ponies let a lead slip away in the back half of the game, falling to Portland 5-3. Tim Tebow (as part of a three hit day) and Josh Allen registered RBIs to stake Nabil Crismatt to a two run lead, and he made that stand up for the first five innings. Unfortunately, Crismatt, David Roseboom, and Joe Zanghi combined to let five runs score in the sixth and seventh innings to put Binghamton in a three run hole. A ninth inning rally came up short, as Joey Terdoslavich struck out as the tying run at the plate.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 4-6)


Harol Gonzalez and the bullpen were just good enough to support a solid offensive performance in a 4-3 win. Gonzalez went six innings and allowed two runs, walking three and striking out four. MIchael Paez and Luis Carpio both went deep in the second to build a two run lead, and Wuilmer Becerra and Dan Rizzie added to that in the fourth. That insurance was important, as Austin McGeorge allowed a run in the seventh to cut the lead to one. Adam Atkins recorded a clean ninth for the save.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 6-5)


A grand slam from Quinn Brodey in the first inning set the tone in a 16-8 win for the Fireflies. Brodey, Scott Manea, and Dionis Paulino all went deep, and Manea racked up six RBIs on the day. Six Fireflies had two or more hits in a stupendous offensive performance. The pitching performance was less spectacular, as Yeizo Campos was boxed around for five runs in a 4.1 inning start. Conner O’Neil allowed another run and Trey Cobb allowed two unearned runs in the ninth, but the Columbia offense built up more than enough wiggle room.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Nicolas Debora assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Brooklyn Cyclones

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (11-6)


Despite an unimpressive start from Christian James, the Cyclones topped the Yankees 7-4. James lasted only 3.2 innings, allowing four runs on three walks and six hits while failing to record a single strikeout. Billy Oxford, Ryan Selmer, and Yeudy Colon savedthe game with 5.1 innings of shutout relief, and the Cyclones’ offense went to work. Jos Miguel Medina led the way with a two double, two RBI day, and 2018 draftee Ross Adolph registered his first career home run as part of a three RBI day.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (8-4)


Kingsport triumphed in a pitcher’s duel, topping Pulaski 2-1. Matt Cleveland struck out three and walked three, working around a wild pitch and an error to keep the Yankees off the board. Andrew Ryan and Luis Silva also worked around errors to keep the slate clean before Andrew Mitchell allowed a run in the ninth despite striking out three. On the offensive side, Guillermo Granadillo managed the only RBI for Kingsport, with the game deciding run scoring on a wild pitch.

ROSTER ALERT: LF Zach Rheams assigned to Kingsport Mets

Rookie - GCL Mets (7-5)


Seven Mets pitchers combined to allow nine runs in a loss to the GCL Cardinals. Ricky Knapp, making a rehab start in the low minors, started with four shutout innings. The next five Met pitchers all registered two or fewer outs and allowed all nine runs, with Michael Otanez - five runs in 0.2 innings - being the primary culprit. Led by Walter Rasquin, the Mets did score four runs, but that wasn’t nearly enough. Top prospects Ronny Mauricio and Jarred Kelenic went 2-for-5 and 1-for-4 respectively.
