Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (71-69)

LAS VEGAS 4, SACRAMENTO 3 (BOX)

Peter Alonso capped his terrific season with a bang, launching a walkoff, two-run home run to lead Vegas to a 4-3 win over Sacramento. P.J. Conlon was solid for six innings, allowing three runs and striking out six over six innings, but the Vegas offense couldn’t get on the board early. They finally broke through in the sixth and seventh with RBIs from Colton Plaia and Zach Borenstein, but still trailed by one heading to the bottom of the ninth. Fittingly, two players who should be on the major league team at this point came through - Luis Guillorme tripled, and Alonso launched a monstrous home run, his 36th on the year.

The home run was more than just the perfect end on a season that has seen Alonso transform from a fringe prospect into someone who will rank in the top 50 going into next season. For 2019, the Mets will be moving their Triple-A affiliate to Syracuse, marking the end of their (often frustrating) stay in Vegas, one that saw guys like Noah Syndergaard, Zack Wheeler, Brandon Nimmo, and others pass through. Additionally, Monday’s game was the final game played at Cashman field. He was only there for three months, but Alonso has now etched himself into Vegas baseball history.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (64-74)

PORTLAND 8, BINGHAMTON 7 / 11 (BOX)

It was an exciting, extra inning end to Binghamton’s season, but they ultimately fell 8-7 in eleven innings. Justin Dunn was roughed up for five innings, allowing eight hits and five runs, but he did manage eight strikeouts. The Rumble Ponies’ offense did their part, scoring three in the second and two in the third, led by a two-run home run from Will Toffey. With the score knotted up at five after five, both teams went quiet until extra innings. Both teams scored one run in the tenth, but Portland pushed two across in the top of the eleventh. John Mora drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, but Binghamton couldn’t tie things up again.

Roster Alert: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated LHP David Roseboom from the 7-day disabled list.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 27-36)

NO GAME (SEASON ENDED)

FINAL STATS

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 30-37)

AUGUSTA 3, COLUMBIA 2 (BOX)

It was a quiet end to the season for the Fireflies, who dropped their finale 3-2 to Augusta. Zac Grotz had a very good start, striking out twelve over seven innings, but he allowed two home runs that led to all three runs Augusta would score. Dionis Paulino had the only noteworthy offensive performance, knocking in both Columbia runs wih three singles.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (40-35)

BROOKLYN 5, STATEN ISLAND 4 / 10 (BOX)

Brooklyn closed their season with a walkoff win over Staten Island, topping the Yankees 5-4. Ross Adolph was the star of the show, capping his fantastic rookie season by falling a home run shy of the cycle and stealing two bases from the leadoff spot. Anthony Swarzak tossed a scoreless inning of relief in a rehab appearance, but every other Cyclone’s pitcher allowed a run in regulation to knot the game up at three. In the tenth, Staten Island scored in the top half, but a bases loaded HBP tied it and a bases loaded walk by L.A. Woodard walked things off. Unfortunately, Auburn’s win eliminated the Cyclones from the postseason despite their late inning heroics.

Well, that’s a wrap on another season of daily prospect reports. It’s been a pleasure, as always, and I (and the whole team) look forward to doing it all again next season. Until then, enjoy the rest of the regular season and start thinking about how we’ll be wrong on our obligatory ordinal list in the offseason.
