Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (64-68)


Patrick Kivlehan doubled in a run in the top of the first, giving the 51s a quick 1-0 lead. They held it for only a few minutes, as the River Cats plated four runs in the bottom of the frame, giving them the lead. Matt Gage gave up another run in the fourth, while the Sacramento staff kept Las Vegas off the board for the rest of the game. The 51s logged seven hits and drew three walks, but were 0-7 with men in scoring position.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (61-71)


The Fisher Cats racked up twelve hits against the Rumble Ponies yesterday afternoon, with Harol Gonzalez getting hit for eleven of them- six of which were for extra bases- over his six innings of work. It was the second time as a Rumble Pony that he allowed ten or more hits. Suffice to say, Harol did not have a good outing, allowing six runs- five earned- on the afternoon. With the loss, the Rumble Ponies are guaranteed to finish 2018 with a losing record.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed 2B J.J. Franco on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed LHP David Roseboom on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed CF Patrick Biondi on the 7-day disabled list.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/26-35)


The St. Lucie Mets played their last game at home this season and ended things on a good note, beating the Miracle and winning the three-game weekend series. Fort Myers initially took the lead, but St. Lucie quickly tied things up in the third, when Blake Tiberi led off the bottom of the inning with a single and was driven home by a Dan Rizzie double. They then took the lead in the fourth and added a few insurance runs in the eighth. By that point, starter David Peterson had long been locked in, retiring 15 consecutive batters between the third and the seventh. Trey Cobb pitched the eighth and ninth and was equally effective, saving his second game with St. Lucie and his twelfth overall in 2018.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/26-32)


After trading zeroes with Tourists’ starter Lucas Gilbreath early on, Luc Rennie had a complete and utter collapse in the fourth inning, allowing seven earned runs in the inning. They added to their lead, scoring a run in the sixth and seventh, while the Colaflies managed just two hits on the entire afternoon. Here’s to you, Rigoberto Terrazas and Carlos Sanchez- honorable mentions to Scott Manea, who took one for the team and was hit by a pitch.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (36-31)


Once again, the Cyclones jumped out to a big lead, this time plating six runs in the first inning. Eleven men came to the plate, beginning with Ross Adolph leading the inning off with a homer, and ending with Carlos Cortes popping out in his second at-bat of the game. Vermont chipped away at the lead, but when Cortes homered in the sixth to make it 8-3, it looked like Brooklyn had it in the bag. I wish I could have ended this recap right there, but unfortunately, there is more to report. The Lake Monsters scored three runs in the bottom of the inning to make it an 8-6 game. Then they scored one in the seventh to make it an 8-7 game. The camel’s back broke in the bottom of the inning, and in the bottom of the ninth, with runners on the corners, Ezequiel Zabaleta balked to bring home the tying run. The Cyclones brought a run home in the top of the tenth on an error during a play at the plate, but the lead was short lived as Vermont immediately got that run back in the bottom of the inning. Neither team scored in the eleventh, but Vermont scored in the bottom of the twelfth, winning the game. Jeremy Eierman led off the inning with a double and automatic runner Jonah Bride came around to score.

With the devastating loss, Brooklyn fell to four games behind the Hudson Valley Renegades for first in the division. They remain ahead of the rest of the pack in the wild card race, but it is by the tightest of margins: they lead the Auburn Doubledays by a half-game and the Staten Island Yankees by one.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (32-33)


Missing Luis Santana for the sixth straight game, Sheryven Newton for the third straight game, and Jarred Kelenic for the second, the Kingsport Mets are sputtering to the finish line. After a hard-fought sweep of the Bristol Pirates to widen and virtually guarantee a playoff appearance, the Kingsport Mets were swept by the Burlington Royals, the worst team in the Appalachian League. Burlington took an early lead, but Kingsport threatened in the middle innings, shaving the lead down to 4-2. In the sixth, Matt Cleveland and Allan Winans combined to allow five innings, basically putting the game out of reach for the ailing Kingsport offense.

Despite the loss, the Kingsport Mets are still looking good in terms of their playoff odds with a magic number of one.

Rookie: GCL Mets (24-31)
