Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (60-61)

FRESNO 6, LAS VEGAS 3 (BOX)

The middle innings were Las Vegas’s undoing, falling to Fresno 6-3. Nabil Crismatt gave up three runs in the fourth and two more unearned runs in the fifth thanks to an error by Luis Guillorme. The 51s rallied for three runs of their own in the top of the sixth, driven in by Bryce Brentz and Dominic Smith, but Logan Taylor gave up another run in the bottom of the sixth that gave Fresno a three run lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Ian Krol and Jacob Rhame kept things close with 2.2 innings of scoreless relief, but the 51s never put together a significant threat again.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed 3B Cody Asche on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to August 13, 2018.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (55-64)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 21-29)

ST. LUCIE 4, FLORIDA 1 (BOX)

Jay Bruce’s veteran presence led the St. Lucie Mets to a 4-1 win over the Florida Fire Frogs. Desmond Lindsay had the standout offensive performance, going 1-for-3 with a double, walk, and two RBI. Ali Sanchez and Jacob Zanon knocked in the other two runs for the Mets. On the pitching side, Anthony Kay was solid, allowing only one run over six innings and striking out three. Thomas McIlraith and Matt Pobereyko combined for three innings of scoreless relief to close out the win. Bruce went 0-for-2 with a walk and a strikeout in his first rehab appearance.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RF Jay Bruce on a rehab assignment to St. Lucie Mets.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (28-25)

KINGSPORT 10, BLUEFIELD 4 (BOX)

Helped by three errors from Bluefield, Kingsport exploded for 10 runs in a rout of the Blue Jays. Kenny Hernandez and Ranfy Adon were the only Mets with multiple hits, but Robby Kidwell hit his first homer of the year and Raul Beracierta tripled. On the pitching side, Willy Taveras bounced back from two rough innings to toss seven innings of four run ball. His final five frames were clean, and he struck out four in the win.

Rookie - GCL Mets (22-26)

GCL METS 8, GCL NATIONALS 4 (BOX)

The GCL Mets overcame a two run deficit with a six run ninth inning, topping the Nationals 8-4. Second round draft pick Simeon Woods-Richardson got the start and tossed three scoreless innings, striking out four. He departed with a 1-0 lead, but Michel Otanez proceeded to allow four runs in 1+ innings. The Mets got one run back in the seventh, but headed to the ninth down 4-2. Nelson Mompierre started the scoring with a three-run double, and Anderson Bohorquez followed that up with a three-run triple to put the game out of reach.
