*All results from games played on August 28, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (66-68)

LAS VEGAS 6, TACOMA 0 (BOX)

Drew Gagnon tossed a brilliant complete game shutout to lead Las Vegas past Tacoma 6-0. Gagnon struck out eight and allowed only three baserunners on two hits and a walk. The offense, meanwhile put together a four run rally in the first, capped off by a two-run double from Zach Borenstein. Jack Kivlehan added a two-run home run in the fifth for some extra cushion. Peter Alonso, fresh off the frustrating news that he would not be promoted this season, went 1-for-3 with a walk and a double, and the rehabbing David Wright went 1-for-4 and played all nine innings at third base.

Roster Alert: New York Mets sent 3B David Wright on a rehab assignment to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (63-71)

BINGHAMTON 4, HARTFORD 3 (BOX)

A pinch hit home run from recent acquisition Will Toffey led the Rumble Ponies to a 4-3 win over Hartford. Frankyn Kilome’s start lasted only 2.1 innings after he was ejected in the third after hitting the opposing pitcher. It was a clear case of headhunting, especially after Kilome was hit by a pitch (seemingly unintentionally) in the previous inning and started walking towards the mound and being guided to first. Throwing at batters intentionally is never acceptable, and he can hopefully learn that lesson now. This early dustup led to confrontations later, when manager Luis Rojas and left fielder Kevin Taylor were ejected after he was nicked by Hartford pitcher Sean Nolin.

Newly promoted reliever Adam Atkins stepped in after the ejection and performed well, tossing 2.2 scoreless innings and recording his first professional hit in his first professional plate appearance. Unfortunately, Stephen Villines coughed up a 3-1 lead in the sixth. Villines bounced back with a scoreless inning, however, and Ryder Ryan tossed a scoreless eighth to set the stage for Toffey’s heroics in the top of the ninth. Joshua Torres recorded the save.

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

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 27-33)

COLUMBIA 11, CHARLESTON 2 (BOX)

The Fireflies made up for a slow offensive day earlier in the week, exploding for 11 runs in a win against Charleston. Hansel Moreno and Scott Manea were the only starters without multiple hits for the Fireflies, providing more than enough run support for Tony Dibrell. Dibrell went 5.1 innings and allowed one run, and Joshua Payne allowed another in 2.2 innings of work before Aaron Ford closed things out with a clean ninth. Matt Winaker had the most impressive offensive day, going 2-for-3 with two doubles and two walks, while Zach Rheams launched his sixth home run of the year.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (37-32)

BROOKLYN 8, VERMONT 6 (BOX)

The Cyclones hung on for a much needed win over Vermont with an 8-6 victory. The Cyclones built themselves a big lead early, scoring in each of the first four innings led by home runs from Walter Rasquin and Wagner Lagrange. Starter Tylor Megill gave up three runs of his own in the bottom of the third, but departed after five innings in line for the win. Joshua Walker let the Lake Monsters back in to the game, however, giving up a run in the sixth and two more in the ninth without recording an out. Billy Oxford and Ryley Gilliam were able to steady the ship and hang on to the two run victory. The win keeps the Cyclones up a half-game in Auburn Doubledays in the Penn League wild card race.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (33-34)

JOHNSON CITY 10, KINGSPORT 3 (BOX)

Having already locked up a playoff spot, Kingsport dropped a meaningless game 10-3 to Johnson City. Garrison Bryant was roughed up for 4.2 innings, giving up six runs on seven hits and four walks, while striking out six. The offense was unremarkable, with Yoel Romero having the strangest day; he went 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles to lead the offense, but also committed a whopping three errors in the field. Jarred Kelenic returned to the field after being absent the last couple days, going 1-for-5 and reaching on an error as the DH. Shervyen Newton remains out of the lineup.
