- Savannah dropped to Greenville, 5-1.
- In his second game back from his stint on the DL, Brandon Nimmo was 0-for-2 with two strikeouts in last night’s loss. His average has now dipped below the .300 mark for the first time this year (.299).
- The Mets are sending Omar Quintanilla to New York says Andy Martino via Twitter. The 31-year old was pulled from the Las Vegas 51s game tonight following the injury to Ruben Tejada.

- Allan Dykstra is trying to keep his name relevant in the search for the Mets’ future first baseman. Dykstra stroked another home run and added three RBI in last night’s loss to Altoona. He’s batting .307 with six homers and 31 RBI on the year. He leads Binghamton in batting average (.307), RBI (31), OBP (.449), OPS (.996), and is second on the team in home runs (6).
