Starter Robert Gsellman, one of the New York Mets’ top pitching prospects, has made a sharp turnaround since his first three starts with the Las Vegas 51s.
51s left-hander Sean Gilmartin was rattled for six runs and nine hits in his three-inning outing, and the Albuquerque Isotopes completed a four-game sweep of Las Vegas with an 8-7 victory.
T.J. Rivera will finally get his shot. Passed up for a promotion multiple times this season, the Mets finally called up the 51s Triple-A All-Star third baseman.
Just over a month ago, the 51s dropped both games of a doubleheader to the Albuquerque Isotopes. On Tuesday, Las Vegas suffered the same fate, losing 7-0 and 4-3 to Albuquerque at Isotopes Park.
