*All results from games played on July 31, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (52-56)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

ROSTER ALERT: SS Jack Reinheimer assigned to Las Vegas 51s

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (49-59)

GAME 1: HARTFORD 6, BINGHAMTON 5 / 7 (BOX)

In their first game of the day, Binghamton’s late rally came up just short in a 6-5 loss. Harol Gonzalez pitched poorly, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks over six innings. Joe Zanghi kept Hartford off the board in the top of the seventh, giving Binghamton one lost chance down five. The Rumble Ponies exploded with a three-run double from Joey Terdoslavich cutting the deficit to run and putting the tying run in scoring position. Kevin Taylor flew out, however, and Binghamton took the one-run loss.

GAME 2: HARTFORD 2, BINGHAMTON 1 / 7 (BOX)

Game 2 was a makeup of a rainout from June 24, and things didn’t go much better for the Rumble Ponies. Kevin McGowan tossed a passable four innings, allowing two runs, and the rest of the bullpen contributed three scoreless innings. the Rumble Pony offense went to sleep, however, managing only one extra-base-hit en route to a one run performance.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 14-22)

ST. LUCIE 4, BRADENTON 1 (BOX)

A seven inning rally pushed St. Lucie to a 4-1 win over Bradenton. Both teams scored in the first, but starters Joe Cavallaro and James Marvel held both sides in check for the next five innings. The Mets broke through in the seventh, with an RBI single from Ali Sanchez to take the lead and a two-run home run from Blake Tiberi to add some insurance. Trey Cobb followed with two scoreless innings, and Stephen Villines lowered his ERA to 0.54 with a perfect inning for the save.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 15-22)

WEST VIRGINIA 3, COLUMBIA 1 / 10 (BOX)

Only three Fireflies’ managed hits in a 3-1, extra inning loss to West Virginia. Tony Dibrell was fantastic (another Met prospect in need of a promotion), striking out ten over six innings and allowing only one run. Darwin Ramos was just as good in relief, sending the game to extra innings with three scoreless innings. Joshua Payne couldn’t keep the good times rolling, however, allowing two runs in the top of the tenth, and the Columbia offense couldn’t rally back.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (23-21)

TRI-CITY 4, BROOKLYN 3 (BOX)

Despite having a rehabbing Todd Frazier in the lineup, the Cyclones fell 4-3 to the Tri-City ValleyCats. Tylor Megill didn’t make it out of the fourth inning, allowing three runs on three walks and three hits. Billy Oxford gave up what turned out to be the deciding run in the seventh, putting the Cyclones in a two-run hole. Frazier did his part to help, launching a solo home run in the eighth to cut the deficit to one run, but that was as close as they’d get.

ROSTER ALERT: NEw York Mets sent 3B Todd Frazier on a rehab assignment to Brooklyn Cyclones

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (20-18)

KINGSPORT 7, GREENEVILLE 4 (BOX)

Kingsport ran wild against Greeneville, stealing seven bases in a 7-4 win. The pitching wasn’t great, with Dedniel Nunez allowing two runs in five innings and Garrison Bryant allowing two more in relief, albeit unearned. Big days from two top prospects in Mark Vientos and Shervyen Newton carried the day, however, combing to go 5-for-9 with a double, homer, and two RBI. Guillermo Granadillo had a big day as well, reaching base three times and stealing three bases.

Rookie - GCL Mets (19-16)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Star of the Night
