MLB: New York Mets-Workouts Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

*All results from games played on August 13, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (60-60)


It was a putrid offensive showing for the 51s, as they managed only four hits in a 4-0 loss to Fresno. P.J. Conlon was roughed up for three runs in 4.2 innings, and didn’t make it out of the fifth. Eric Hanhold gave up another run in the sixth without recording an out, and the 51s were in a 4-0 hole they wouldn’t come close to escaping. Zach Borenstein and Colton Plaia managed doubles, but were stranded at second as the rest of the offense sputtered.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned 3B Luis Guillorme to Las Vegas 51s.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RHP Jacob Rhame to Las Vegas 51s.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Stephen Villines assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from St. Lucie Mets.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 20-29)


The St. Lucie offense was nonexistent in a 3-1 loss. David Wright made his second consecutive rehab appearance and reached base for the first time on a walk, but still hasn’t recorded a hit. The top four spots in the Mets’ lineup went a combined 0-11, and the team managed only five runs as a whole. Luis Carpio generated the only run with a solo home run in the eighth. On the pitching side, Michael Gibbons had a rough start, walking four and allowing five hits and two runs over five innings. A third, inconsequential run scored against Austin McGeorge in the eighth.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Wilmer Reyes assigned to GCL Mets from St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent OF Ian Strom on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 20-29)


The Fireflies rallied back from an early deficit to top Delmarva 8-7. Tony Dibrell put Columbia in an early hole, blowing a 2-0 lead in the fifth by allowing five runs. The Fireflies replied with two more runs of their own in the third, but the game was scoreless for the next two innings. Trent Johnson walked two and allowed a run without recording an out in the top of the sixth, before Jose Brizuela got the run back in the bottom half with an RBI single. Delmarva scored again in the top of the seventh, and once again the Fireflies replied, this time with RBIs from Scott Manea and Edgardo Fermin, tying the game at seven. A fielding error, sacrifice bunt, wild pitch, and an infield single pushed across the game winning run in the eighth, and Darwin Ramos shut down the Shorebirds to secure the win.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (30-25)


Rookie: Kingsport Mets (27-25)


Both of the big time prospects in the Kingsport middle infield homered, but it wasn’t enough in a 9-7 loss. Luis Santana and Shervyen Newton each launched two-run home runs in the first and sixth respectively, and former top prospect Kenny Hernandez added a two-run shot of his own. That wasn’t enough support for Garrison Bryant and the Kingsport bullpen however. Bryant gave up five runs, three earned (hurt by an error from 2017 first-rounder Mark Vientos) in four innings, and both Allan Winans and Luis Silva allowed two more runs in relief.

Rookie - GCL Mets (21-26)


It was an offensive explosion for the GCL Mets, topping the GCL Marlins 9-3. Five of the nine Met starters recorded two hits, with Wilmer Reyes launching a home run and Wilfred Astudillo going 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles. Bryce Hutchinson made a decent start, striking out three over five innings and allowing two runs on six hits. Those were the only two runs for the Marlins until Ronnie Taylor coughed up a meaningless run in the ninth.
