Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (57-58)

LAS VEGAS 9, IOWA 6 (BOX)

The 51s scored in each of the first four innings en route to a 9-6 win over Iowa. Peter Alonso was the start of the offense, going 4-for-5 with a three-run home run and finishing a triple short of the cycle. Cody Asche also had a big day with a triple and a two-run home run of his own. Drew Gagnon capitalized on the big offensive performance, logging six innings of two-run ball and strikign out nine. Chris Beck made things a big interesting in the ninth, allowing three runs, but ultimately held on for the win.

ROSTER ALERT: Chris Flexen underwent knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (54-60)

BINGHAMTON 5, RICHMOND 1 (BOX)

Binghamton cruised to a 5-1 win over Richmond, led by starter Matt Gage. Gage tossed six scoreless innings, allowing seven hits and one walk while striking out two. Joey Terdoslavich was the star on offense, going 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI. Will Toffey also had a good night, displaying the keen eye that made him a trade target for the Mets and drawing four walks. Ryder Ryan, the return for Jay Bruce at the trade deadline last season, allowed the only Richmond run of the night in the ninth.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies released C Jose Garcia

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 18-25)

ST. LUCIE 3, JUPITER 1 (BOX)

St. Lucie didn’t score until the sixth, but they managed enough offense to top the Juptier Hammerheads 3-1. Michael Gibbons made an excellent start, going 6.2 innings and striking out eight while allowing only one run. He was in line for the loss until the top of the sixth, when a home run from Anthony Dimino and an RBI single from Gene Cone put the Mets up 2-1. Michael Paez added insurance with his 11th home run of the year in the ninth, a run that wound up being superfluous with Trey Cobb recording a perfect inning to secure the save.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent OF Jacob Zanon on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

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

COLUMBIA 6, GREENVILLE 4 (BOX)

Columbia bunched their offense in the middle innings and hung on late to top Greenville 6-4. Tony Dibrell put the Fireflies in an immediate 2-0 hole in the top of the first, but Columbia came back and scored one in the third, three in the fourth, and two more in the fifth. Taylor Henry did his best to make things interesting, allowing two runs in the eighth, but Carlos Hernandez was able to stabilize things and close out the win. There wasn’t a particular standout on offense, but seven of the nine Firefly starters recorded at least one hit.

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

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed LHP Jake Simon on the 7-day disabled list.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (26-25)

HUDSON VALLEY 5, BROOKLYN 4 (BOX)

For the second evening in a row, Brooklyn lost to Hudson Valley in walkoff fashion. Brooklyn struck first, scoring two runs in the top of the fourth on a triple and an error, but Hudson Valley responded immediately with four runs in the bottom half. The deficit stayed at two until the ninth, when Wagner Lagrange and Brian Sharp each recorded RBI to know things up at four. The game didn’t stay tied for long, as Ronald Sanchez recorded only one out in the bottom of the ninth before giving up a walkoff single to Bryce Brown.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (25-21)

ELIZABETHTON 16, KINGSPORT 10 (BOX)

This was a wild Appy league game, with Elizabethton topping Kingsport 16-10. Kingsport had only six hits, but they managed ten runs thanks to six walks and a pair of errors. Ranfy Adon had the best day at the plate, with a double, home run, and six RBI. The pitching was generally a disaster - Nelson Leon was the only of the five Kingsport pitchers to not allow at least two runs.

Rookie - GCL Mets (20-22)

GCL ASTROS 4, GCL METS 3 (BOX)

The Mets rallied back from an early deficit, but ultimately fell 4-3 to the GCL Astros. Bryce Hutchinson and Jorge Cespedes combined to put the GCL Mets in a 3-0 hole, but a run scored an error and RBIs from Sebastion Espino and Jacob Zanon in the sixth and seventh respectively tied the game at three. Cesar Loaiza gave up another run in the top of the ninth, however, and the Jaylen Palmer was thrown out at third with one out in the bottom of the ninth, a cardinal sin when carrying the tying run.
