Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (67-68)


The 51s got off to a fast start, then held on late to defeat the Rainiers 7-5 last night. Vegas scored six over the first four innings, with homers from Patrick Kivlehan and Matthew den Dekker leading the way. P.J. Conlon had a solid start, going six strong innings. Tacoma rallied late against Chris Beck to make it a game in the eighth, scoring three to cut the lead to 6-5. However, Peter Alonso ripped his second double of the game in the bottom of the frame to plate Jack Reinheimer with a big insurance run, and Tim Peterson closed out the victory. David Wright had a rough second AAA rehab game, going 0-5 with a pair of strikeouts.

ROSTER ALERT: Jacob Rhame was recalled as the 26th man for the day, and was returned to Las Vegas upon the completion of the Mets’ afternoon game in Chicago.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (63-72)


Justin Dunn was solid through five, as his Binghamton teammates staked him to a 2-1 lead. Will Toffey doubled in Andres Gimenez in the top of the first to plate the first run, then Joey Terdoslavich put the Ponies back on top in the fourth with his eleventh of the year. However, Dunn faded in the sixth, losing control of the strike zone and, ultimately, the game. He started the bottom of the sixth with two walks. A couple of hits, three stolen bases allowed and one wild pitch later, the Yard Goats were up 3-2. Joe Zanghi surrendered three in the eighth to put the game out of reach.

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


St. Lucie lost a third straight day to rain. A doubleheader has been optimistically scheduled for Thursday in Lakeland to complete their series. Today’s game—and three of the five originally-scheduled five games in the series—will be cancelled. Meanwhile, Michael Paez and promoted top prospect Andres Gimenez were named to the FSL year-end All-Star team yesterday.

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


Hansel Moreno staked the Colaflies to an early 1-0 lead with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first, but that was all of the offense Columbia could muster. Zac Grotz was excellent, making that lead stand up into the seventh, when Moreno helped give that run back and then some, as his first throwing error of the game helped open the floodgates for a three run inning for Charleston. A second Moreno error contributed in part to a second three-run RiverDog outburst against the Columbia pen in the ninth.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (38-32)


The Cyclones opened up a big three game series with the first place Renegades with a huge 4-2 victory. Brooklyn put up a three spot in the bottom of the second thanks to a Walter Lagrange RBI double followed by an Anthony Dirocie two-run home run. When Briam Campusano got into trouble in the top of the fourth, the Cyclones went to their stellar bullpen early to hold the lead. Billy Oxford got out of the jam, ultimately vulturing his team-leading seventh win of the season as he and his ‘pen mates combined for 5.1 innings of 1-hit relief. The win puts the Cyclones one game up on the Auburn Doubledays in the Penn League wild card race, and brings them within three games of the first place Renegades with five more regular season games to play.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (33-35)


Simeon Woods Richardson picked a tough day to surrender his first professional runs, as Johnson City got to him for three runs in the third inning on a run-scoring single and a two-run home run. The 2018 second-round pick did flash his electric arm again, striking out six over his three innings. Kingsport tied the game in the top of the seventh when Ranfy Adon singled and stole second, then came around on a clutch RBI single from Jarred Kelenic. However, a wild Liam McCall walked three, helping the Cardinals to respond with two in the bottom of the frame to take a 5-3 lead. The teams exchanged runs in the eighth, and a Kingsport rally in the ninth came up short. Kingsport has lost five of their last six, backing into the Appalachian League West Divisional Series playoff matchup with the first place Elizabethton Twins, as they’ll host Game 1 Friday evening.

Rookie - GCL Mets (24-31)
