Three New York Mets have been named to represent the Pacific Coast League in the 29th Annual Sonic Automotive Triple-A All-Star Game. Las Vegas 51s skipper Wally Backman, who played a major role in the 1986 World Series win for the Mets, will manage the PCL team for the game, slated for July 13th at the Charotte Knights’ BB&T Ballpark. Backman’s three players, third baseman T.J. Rivera, designated hitter Travis Taijeron, and pitcher Gabriel Ynoa, have definitely earned their spots on the PCL team roster. Rivera’s .361 average is the second-best in the PCL, Taijeron’s 30 doubles lead the league, and Ynoa’s 9 wins (and only 3 losses) in just over 100 innings leads the entire PCL. The 51’s are currently in 2nd place in the Southern Division of the PCL, with a record of 41-3, and are 4.5 games back of the San Diego Padres affiliate the El Paso Chihuahuas. They are looking to win their first division championship since 2014 and their first league title since 1988, when they were a part of the Padres minor league system.
