Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (56-58)

LAS VEGAS 6, IOWA 1 (BOX)

The 51s cruised to an easy win over the Iowa Cubs, topping them 6-1. Scott Copeland allowed the only run for Iowa in the first, then combined with Ian Krol, Tim Peterson, and P.J. Conlon for eight shutout innings. Peterson was particularly impressive, striking out all four batters he faced. Patrick Kivlehan led the offense with a three-run home run in the fourth that gave the 51s a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Dom Smith and Ty Kelly had the other three RBIs in the eight.

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

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 17-25)

JUPITER 7, ST. LUCIE 6 (BOX)

A solid start from David Peterson was wasted in a wild ending, as St. Lucie lost in walkoff fashion to Jupiter. Peterson struck out six over six innings, allowing three runs, two earned. He left with St. Lucie up 4-3, thanks to a two-RBI double from Ali Sanchez in the first and two more runs in the fourth. Thomas McIlraith coughed up that lead in the bottom of the eighth, but Anthony Dimino immediately answered with a two-run home run in the top of the ninth. McIlraith blew that lead too, however, coughing up two runs that tied the game and ultimately being charged with the game-ending run as well.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent CF Desmond Lindsay on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 17-25)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (26-24)

HUDSON VALLEY 6, BROOKLYN 5 (BOX)

Brooklyn got off to a fast start but ultimately fell in walkoff fashion, 6-5 to the Renegades. The Cyclones scored three in the first, started by a leadoff triple from Ross Adolph. Jose Butto gave all three runs back in the third, but the Cyclones struck again with a sacrifice fly from Nick Meyer in the top of the fourth to retake the lead. Butto blew that lead too, giving up a run in the seventh, but the Cyclones once again rallied back with an RBI double from Jose Miguel Medina in the top of the eighth. That lead held til the bottom of the ninth, but Ryley Gilliam failed to record an out, walking a the leadoff batter and then giving up a walkoff, two-run home run.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (25-20)

GAME 1: KINGSPORT 5, ELIZABETHTON 1 / 7 (BOX)

In the first game of their doubleheader, the Kingsport pitched excelled en route to a 5-1 win. Dedniel Nunez struck out six in five innings, allowing only one run, and Luis Silva worked around three hits in two innings to hold the Twins off the board. Guillermo Granadillo paced the offense, going a perfect 4-for-4 with two runs and a steal, while the rest of the offense managed only four hits combined.

GAME 2: KINGSPORT 7, ELIZABETHTON 2 / 7 (BOX)

Game 2 went just as well as the first, with an excellent start leading to a 7-2 win. Garrison Bryant went six innings and allowed only one hit, striking out seven. Christian Tripp allowed two runs in the bottom of the seventh, but that didn’t matter thanks to a five run outburst from the Mets in the top of the seventh. Shervyen Newton had the best performance in this one, going 3-for-4 with a double, and his partner in the middle infield, Luis Santana, had a 2-for-4 day as well.

Rookie - GCL Mets (20-21)

GCL CARDINALS 6, GCL METS 3 (BOX)

The score wasn’t absurd, but it was a resounding loss for the GCL Mets, falling 6-3 to the GCL Cardinals. The Mets managed only four hits and committed three errors, and one of their three runs scored on a bases-loaded double play. Adonis Uceta made a rehab appearance and faced only one batter, who he walked, while Desmond Lindsay went hitless in his rehab start as a DH. Ronny Mauricio went hitless, but did walk twice.
