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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (54-61)

RICHMOND 5, BINGHAMTON 1 (Box)

It was death by small cuts for the Rumble Ponies last night, as the Flying Squirrels scratched out single runs in the first, fourth, fifth, sixth, and eighth innings en route to their 5-1 victory. Harol Gonzalez allowed three runs over five innings in what amounted to his best AA start thus far, lowering his AA ERA to 9.32. Binghamton plated their only run on a Tomas Nido sacrifice fly in the third. Joey Terdoslavich had another solid offensive day, going 1-2 with two walks.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed RHP Joe Zanghi on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to August 6, 2018.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 18-26)

JUPITER 4, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)

The St. Lucie offense managed only six singles in their shutout defeat to Jupiter yesterday evening. Anthony Kay kept it close in a relatively solid outing before the Hammerhead offense got to him in the fifth, when an Anfernee Seymour triple plated two, and he came around to score on a sacrifice fly. St. Lucie did load the bases in the eighth with one out, but Gene Cone flew out to shallow left and Michael Paez struck out to end the rally.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 18-26)

GREENVILLE 7, COLUMBIA 1 (Box)

It was a blowout loss for home for the Colaflies against Greenville last night. Zac Grotz allowed single runs in the second and third innings, but kept Columbia in the game until the sixth, when he surrendered a single and a two-run home run before departing. Hansel Moreno blooped a double to lead off the seventh, and came around on a Greenville error to plate the Colaflies’ only run.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (27-25)

BROOKLYN 13, CONNECTICUT 6 (Box)

The Cyclones snapped the minors trend last night in a big way for the organization, busting out for five runs in the third inning and seven more in the fourth. The mercy rule was not invoked, and Connecticut put up six late runs on a tiring Briam Campusano and the Brooklyn bullpen to make the final score look slightly less dramatic. Manny Rodriguez started the rally in the third with a leadoff single, and ended the rally in the fourth with a three-run home run high over the tall left field wall in Brooklyn.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (25-21)

ELIZABETHTON 4, KINGSPORT 3 (Box)

Kingsport took a 3-2 lead into the botom of the ninth against Elizabethton, but the first place Twins struck for two in the frame against Brian Metoyer on a two-out single to break the Mets’ heart and prevent them from gaining any ground in the standings. Kingsport took their lead in the third thanks to back-to-back triples by Jarred Kelenic and Shervyen Newton followed by and RBI single from Luis Santana. The potent Kingsport offense recorded 13 hits on the night, but was unable to plate any insurance runs, which cost them in the end.

Rookie - GCL Mets (20-23)

GCL MARLINS 9, GCL METS 1 (Box)

The Mets pitching was unable to overcome some shoddy defense from Cristopher Pujols, as his three errors led to seven unearned runs in the 9-1 defeat to the Marlins. The Marlins pushed across an actual earned run in the first on a leadoff single, pair of stolen bases and a ground out. In the third, the leadoff man reached on a Pujols throwing error and came around to score the second run. Then in the fourth, another throwing error opened the floodgates that neither Michel Otanez nor Yadiel Flores could close, as the Marlins put up a five spot to put the game away. Second round pick Simeon Woods-Richardson made his fourth appearance and surrendered a pair of unearned runs himself, but did manage to strike out four over 2.1 innings.
