Flushing, NY ( - The New York Mets and the Las Vegas 51s renewed their Player Development Contract for two more years, keeping the 51s as the Triple-A affiliate for the Mets.

The Las Vegas club has been the Mets affiliate since 2012.

"We have had a great partnership with the Las Vegas 51s and the city of Las Vegas, one which continues to provide player development, winning and community involvement," said Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson. "Maintaining continuity in Vegas is something we know will benefit our players, the city, fans and entire community."

Las Vegas has clinched the Pacific Southern Division of the Pacific Coast League for a second straight season and has recorded back-to-back 80-win seasons for the first time. The playoffs will begin on September 3.
