Albuquerque Isotopes 7, Las Vegas 51s 0 Box Score

Rivera’s been called up!

  • Duane Below LHP 4.2 IP, 11 H, 7 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 3 K 5.04 ERA

Albuquerque Isotopes 4 (Colorado, 52-64), Las Vegas 51s 3 (57-61) Box Score

Taijeron has a team leading 17 home runs on the season and has 80 RBIs on the year.

This was Pill’s first Vegas start since July 29th of last year. He allowed two homers, and hit a double himself.

Reading Fightin’ Phils 8 (77-38), Binghamton Mets (53-61) 2 Box Score 

Rosario collects the golden sombrero for the first time this season, his first time striking out more than three times in a game since he struck out five times for Savannah on 5/29/2014. Evans has 21 doubles in 72 Double-A games.

I am totally baffled why Mateo was sent back down to Double-A after three scoreless innings in Triple-A. The B-Mets pitching staff faced probably the most powerful offensive team in the Minor Leagues.

St. Lucie Mets 1 (60-50), Fort Myers Miracle 0 (Minnesota, 56-57) Box Score

Nido has been excellent for St. Lucie, and is likely still there for the playoff stretch as their MVP. He has 21 doubles on the year.

Prevost nearly threw a minor league doubleheader complete game. He has allowed only two runs in 17.2 innings pitched since returning from the DL on July 26th.

St. Lucie should have played a second game of a doubleheader but it was rained out.

Greenville Drive 2 (Boston, 59-55), Columbia Fireflies 1 (52-63) Box Score

Zabala has slowed down a bit in terms of hitting, and strikes out a moderate amount. Winningham has sparks of brilliance at times, but has not hit for much power this year. 2017 may be a better year for Columbia in terms of prospects.

Almonte has been erratic for Columbia.

Brooklyn won 3-0, Jacob Resnick has the story.
