*All results from games played on August 3, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (54-57)


A total of nine home runs were hit in this game. PCL gonna PCL. The 51s just barely held on, eking out a 12-11 victory over the Storm Chasers. Buddy Baumann made things hairy in the ninth, giving up back-to-back home runs after recording two outs, but Chris Beck was able to induce a routine ground ball to short to end the ballgame.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed RHP Chris Flexen on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to August 2, 2018.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s sent RHP Eric Hanhold on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Corey Oswalt from Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (51-59)


Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/15-24)


Anthony Kay was torched last time he pitched, and while he wasn’t exactly great last night, he was better. The left-hander allowed three runs over five innings, giving up five hits, walking four, and striking out six. The Tortugas scored all three of their runs off of Kay early, but he settled down and got into a groove, at one point striking out five consecutive batters. Luis Carpio drove in Quinn Brodey to put St. Lucie on the board in the third, but they would be stymied for most of the game. They surged in the ninth, loading the bases with no outs, but they ended up scoring only one run- on a wild pitch, no less.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed RF Raphael Gladu on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Wilmer Reyes assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/18-22)


The Colaflies were in control of this one since inning one, when Matt Winaker clubbed a ground rule double to right-center that scored Edgardo Fermin and put Columbia up 1-0. They added two more in the third, one in the fourth, and one in the fifth before Asheville finally got on the board. Hansel Moreno added a run on a solo homer in the eighth for good measure, but Carlos Hernandez hit Sean Bouchard with the bases loaded to give the run right back in the ninth. Still, even with the late run, the game was never in question.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (25-22)


Things started off on a positive note, with Brookyn loading up the bases and scoring two runs, but Christian James gave them back quickly, allowing three runs in the second and one in the third. Things looked bleak, but the Cyclones showed some late life. After loading up the bases in the eighth, Brian Sharp and Walter Rasquin each drove in a run, scoring two runs to tie the game up at 2-2 apiece. Things stayed tied until the tenth, when Yeudy Colon uncorked a wild pitch that allowed phantom runner J. C. Escarra to score from third. The Cyclones came within inches of tying things up, but Wagner Lagrange was thrown out at the plate on a fielder’s choice hit up the third base line, deflecting the lone bullet Brooklyn had left.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Yeizo Campos assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Columbia Fireflies.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Dylan Tice assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones.

ROSTER ALERT: Andrew Mitchell assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Kingsport Mets.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (22-19)


The Bristol Pirates beat up on Jose Moreno early on, but the bullpen was able to hold on long enough for the Kingsport offense to do its thing. Trailing 7-3, Kingsport started their comeback in the sixth, with a Domingo Martinez double into center that scored two. Jarred Kelenic drove in a run in the seventh, Kenny Hernandez drove in a run in the eighth, and Kelenic and Mark Vientos added two in the bottom of the ninth to tie things up at 7-7. In the tenth, Eric Villanueva threw a wild pitch that allowed phantom runner Mikell Granberry to score, and all of the excitement of Kingsport’s comeback quickly got sucked out of the stadium. Kingsport would end up sending the fans home happy, as Kenny Hernandez tied the game back up at 8-8 in the bottom of the tenth, and Yoel Romero singled on a ground ball to the left side that walked things off.

Rookie: GCL Mets (20-18)


After a lengthy layover after the last time he took the mound, Cameron Planck was back and ready to go. He got right fielder Corey Bird to fly out to right, but then things went wrong. Shortstop Osiris Johnson reaches on a fielding error by third baseman Cristopher Pujols, and then things really went wrong: the 20-year-old right-hander was removed from the game due to an injury of some kind. Planck, who was selected in the 11th round of the 2016 Draft, underwent major shoulder surgery last season and is still obviously feeling the effects of the interior capsule tear in his right shoulder. He had a fairly high upside before the surgery, but at this point, his future in baseball is clouded. It is unlikely that he pitches again this season, and when the 2019 season begins, he will be a 21-year-old with a total of 0.2 professional innings under his belt.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Cesar Loaiza assigned to GCL Mets from DSL Mets1.
