Full Sportscast: Aces Fall in Phoenix, 51s to be impacted by Mets’ moves
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) —
The WNBA Las Vegas Aces fell 72-66 in Phoenix to the Mercury Sunday.
The Las Vegas 51s lost 10-6 to Round Rock Express Sunday at Cashman Field.
The team closed out a seven-game homestand Monday at 7:05 pm.
Looking to spark their stagnant lineup, the New York Mets are making a change at first base.
Slumping veteran Adrian Gonzalez was released following a 2-0 victory over the Yankees on Sunday night, and the Mets will recall Dominic Smith from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday when they begin a 10-game road trip in Atlanta.
The 36-year-old Gonzalez, who struck out in all three at-bats Sunday, hit .237 with six home runs and 26 RBIs for the Mets. The five-time All-Star was signed for the major league minimum during the offseason after struggling with a bad back last year with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Mets also announced they plan to call up utilityman Ty Kelly from Triple-A on Tuesday. Reserve catcher Jose Lobaton will be designated for assignment.
Dustin Johnson emphatically reclaimed the No. 1 ranking Sunday, holing out for eagle from 170 yards on the final hole for a six-stroke victory in the St. Jude Classic
