Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (55-58)


It was a ballgame, but Matt Purke let things get out of hand in the seventh, letting the Iowa Cubs put together a five-run inning that would put the game out of reach for the 51s. After allowing a run and loading up the bases, Purke was replaced by Buddy Baumann, who promptly allowed a grand slam to Chris Gimenez.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s activated RHP Cody Martin from the temporarily inactive list.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Scott Copeland assigned to Las Vegas 51s from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Jacob Rhame from Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (53-60)


The “Spiedies” took the rubber game of their weekend series against the Senators thanks to a big sixth inning that saw them score six runs. The two teams traded runs early on, but Harrisburg retook it in the top of the sixth. In the bottom of the inning, the Rumble Ponies batted around, taking advantage of walks, errors, and HBPs. David Roseboom, Joe Zanghi and Stephen Nogosek pitched the seventh, eighth and ninth, respectively, and combined to preserve the lead by tossing scoreless innings.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Matt Gage assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from St. Lucie Mets.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/17-24)


It was a back-and-forth affair, and it took twelve innings, but St. Lucie pulled it out in the end. They took the initial lead, but the Tortugas took the lead in the sixth. St. Lucie recaptured it once again in the seventh, but Daytona tied it up at 4-4 in the eighth. Things stayed tied until the bottom of the twelfth, when Anthony Dimino led off the inning with a double and allowed phantom runner Luis Carpio to score.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Blake Taylor assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Las Vegas 51s.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/18-25)


The Colaflies hit a franchise-record five home runs, but ended up on the wrong side of the offensive slugfest. To make matters worse, the team lost in humiliating fashion, with Joshua Payne hitting a batter with bases loaded to force in the winning run. Everything clicked for the Columbia offense, but as good as they were, the pitching performed just as poorly.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed RHP Chris Viall on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: OF David Miranda assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Brooklyn Cyclones.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (26-23)


Jaison Vilera’s scoreless streak came to an end, and the right-hander ended up having his worst start of the 2018 season. Vilera extended his streak to 29.1 scoreless innings, but the Renegades scored in the first, breaking the streak fairly quickly. Despite that, the Cyclones held the lead for most of the game, with Chase Chambers and Carlos Cortes both hitting two-runs homers and Jose Medina hitting an RBI double. In the bottom of the ninth, Yeudy Colon blew things yet again. The other day, he allowed a run to score on a wild pitch. Yesterday afternoon, he balked in the winning run. The Dominican right-hander has had an otherwise decent season with the ‘clones, but the last few days have been a struggle.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (23-20)


A day after punishing the Bristol Pirates, the Pirates returned the favor. The game started out fairly manageable, with Kingsport falling behind 2-0, but fielding errors by Mark Vientos and Luis Santana led to a six-run fourth inning, putting the team deep into a hole. The Kingsport offense wasn’t up to the task, though Mark Vientos hit yet another home run and is now hitting .297/.368/.538 with nine long balls.

Rookie: GCL Mets (20-20)
