*All results from games played on July 29, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (51-55)


ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed LHP P.J. Conlon on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to July 28, 2018

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (49-57)


Newly acquired starter Franklyn Kilome took the loss in his Mets debut, allowing four runs- three earned- over seven innings. Altoona jumped out to an early 1-0 lead, but the Rumble Ponies tied things back up in the third when Will Toffey drove in a run with bases loaded. The Curve plated three in the sixth, but Binghamton was unable to catch up. Andres Gimenez drove in two in the eighth and got as far as third base, and Toffey doubled in the ninth, but the batters behind them were unable to get it done and tie things up.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/13-22)


Austin McGeorge gave up a three-run bomb on the first pitch he threw, but the game was long over for St. Lucie. Anthony Kay threw a real clunker, allowing six runs- five earned- over just three-plus innings. Seth Davis allowed three runs- one earned- in just two-third of an inning and after an almost hour rain delay, the aforementioned George gave up that homer. Both teams were scoreless from the bottom of the fifth on, but by that point, it was already a 10-2 game.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/15-20)


The Colaflies plated two in the top of the first, and Chris Viall kept the GreenJackets off the board through four, but the game was suspended on account of the rain after the top of the fifth.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (23-19)


Jaison Vilera extended his scoreless streak to 28.2 innings in yesterday’s win over the Black Bears. Vilera- who loves Captain America, dogs, and food- struck out eight on the afternoon, giving him four starts with eight or more strikeouts in eight total starts. The NY-Penn League has a way of propping up players that might otherwise not stand out, but with an average sinker, solid changeup, solid slider, and lower arm slot, Vilera has the stuff to thrive at higher levels and remains a player to follow in the Mets’ minor league system.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (19-18)


The Kingsport Mets just barely survived the Burlington Royals, fending off their late rally to win the weekend series against them. Daison Acosta was solid in his start, but the bullpen faltered. Luis Santana’s RBI single in the seventh would prove the most important run in the game, as Liam McCall and Mitch Hickey gave up a run apiece in the eighth and ninth, bringing the Royals within one.

Rookie: GCL Mets (17-12)


In an forgettable game, neither the offense nor pitching were on point. Eleventh round draft pick Franklin Parra made his professional debut, allowing a hit and walking a batter in one inning of work, but that is really the only noteworthy thing to take from the loss.
