*All results from games played on August 21, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (62-65)


A seven run second propelled the 51s to a 13-6 win over Salt Lake. Cody Martin recorded only one out before exiting in the first, and was eventually charged with two runs. Corey Taylor wasn’t much better, allowing another two runs in the second. It really didn’t matter, of course, because Las Vegas exploded for ten runs over the first two innings, including three home runs. Luis Guillorme and Peter Alonso added their own homers later in the game to pad the lead. Eric Hanhold also recorded another excellent relief outing, lowering his ERA over his last ten outings to 1.50.

Roster Alert: Las Vegas 51s placed C Jeff Glenn on the 7-day disabled list.
Roster Alert: Las Vegas 51s activated 3B Cody Asche from the 7-day disabled list.
Roster Alert: Las Vegas 51s activated 2B Christian Colon.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (60-67)


It was a decisive lost for Binghamton as they fell 9-2 to Altoona. Harol Gonzalez was beat up for seven innings, allowing five runs on eight hits, two walks, and an error from Tomas Nido. Joe Zanghi came in and threw more gas on that fire, allowing three runs in his one inning of work, and Stephen Villines allowed the ninth run on a solo home run in the ninth. On the offensive side, Nido was the only Rumble Pony who showed up in a meaningful way, driving in both runs with a double and a home run.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 33-35)


Anthony Kay allowed five runs in the second to sink St. Lucie in an 8-3 loss. Kay went 3.1 innings and gave up five hits and four walks while striking out only two. Thomas McIlraith and Austin McGeorge weren’t great either, but the Met offense couldn’t muster enough runs to overcome those given up by Kay anyway. David Wright had a single and an RBI, while Jay Bruce went 3-for-4 with a double while playing the outfield. Dan Rizzie had a truly disastrous defensive performance, with three errors - missed catch, throwing error, error on a pickoff - behind the plate.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 23-31)


SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (34-28)


Brooklyn’s offense was quiet until the latter third of the game in a 5-2 loss to the ValleyCats. The Cyclones didn’t get their first hit until there were two outs in the sixth, and didn’t score until the seventh. They scored again in the eighth, but that wasn’t near enough to overcome a rough start from Jose Butto, who allowed nine hits and five runs over four innings. Ross Adolph, the most notable prospect on the Cyclones’ roster, went 0-for-5 with a strikeout.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (29-30)


Rookie - GCL Mets (23-29)


Anderson Bohorquez and David Lozano were the only Mets that showed up for a 10-1 loss to the GCL Cardinals. Bohorquez went 3-for-4 with a double and a steal, Locano went 2-for-3 with a double, and the rest of the lineup managed only four hits and two walks. Michael Otanez’s start was rough, allowing six runs in four innings, and Jender De Jesus followed up that performance by allowing three runs in only 0.2 innings of work.
