AAA - Las Vegas 51s (35-33)__________________________________
COLORADO SPRINGS 9, LAS VEGAS 7 (Box)
Las Vegas stormed back from a six run deficit to tie the game in the bottom of the eighth, however--and to the surprise of absolutely no one--Rob Carson came in for the top of the ninth and allowed two batters to reach before yielding a three-run home run that essentially ended the game. Zach Lutz homered for the second straight day to provide the offense while Chris Schwinden was roughed up to the tune of nine hits and five earned over five innings.
- PH Mike Baxter: 0-1; (.318/.375/.409)
- 1B Ike Davis: 0-4, R, BB, 2 K; (.174/296/.217) Decidedly un-fixed
- RF Andrew Brown: 1-4, R, 2B, RBI, BB; (.349/.430/.671)
- 2B Wilmer Flores: 1-4, 2 RBI, 2 K; (.308/.349/.488) Not to mention his 52 RBIs leads the PCL -- batting .375 w/ three homers in June
- 3B Zach Lutz: 1-3, R, HR (7), 3 RBI, 2 BB; (.292/.371/.494) Look out Josh Satin, Lutz is 8 for his last 20 with three homers and nine RBIs; Hail...Lutz?
- C Francisco Pena: 1-5, 2 K; (.319/.338/.623 in AAA)
- RHP Chris Schwinden: 5 IP, 9 H, 5 ER, BB, 3 K, 2 HR; (71.1 IP, 6.18 ERA, 95 H, 55 R, 49 ER, 24 BB, 45 K, 14 HR)
AA - Binghamton Mets (42-26)_____________________________________
BOWIE 4, BINGHAMTON 5 (Box)
A seesaw battle in Upstate New York ended when Joe Bonfe hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth to give Binghamton a 5-4 win. The B-Mets are now 11-2 in the month of June and have opened up a 6.5 game lead on the Portland Sea Dogs.
- DH Allan Dykstra: 0-2, RBI, BB, K; (.318/.470/.585); Strikes out a bunch but is a walk machine. He's currently blocked at every level, until you realize he might be better than everyone blocking him.
- RF Travis Taijeron: 3-4, 2 R, 2B, HR (4), RBI; (.367/.406/.900 in AAA; .312/.398/.610 aggregate)
- LF Alonzo Harris: 0-3, 2 K; (.230/.284/.329)
- SS Wilfredo Tovar: 0-3; (.244/.292/.289)
- CF Darrell Ceciliani: 0-4, 2 K; (.265/.315/.386)
- LHP Mark Cohoon: 5 IP, 9 H, 4 ER, BB, 5 K; (48 IP, 4.88 ERA, 65 H, 30 R, 26 ER, 14 BB, 46 K, 3 HR)
Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (33-30)________________________________________
NO GAME (FSL All-Star Break); St. Lucie returns to action Monday night against the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
Three Mets played in the Florida State League all-star game. TJ Rivera hit second but went 0-5, Dustin Lawley played left-field and went 3-4 with two runs scored, and Noah Syndergaard pitched one scoreless inning to pick up the win.
Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (43-26)__________________________________
GREENVILLE 0, SAVANNAH 8 (Box)
Gabriel Ynoa tossed five scoreless and Jayce Boyd reached base five times as Savannah completed a four game sweep of Greenville, winning 8-0. Ynoa was on cruise control when he was pulled after facing just 19 batters. It's likely he was pulled to save him for the Sally all-star game on Tuesday. I imagine there will be a round of promotions following the all-star game. If I had to guess, I would say Boyd, Plawecki, and Matz could move to St. Lucie. Brandon Nimmo picked up a couple of singles, a walk, and a strikeout, but I don't see them moving him at this point.
- CF Brandon Nimmo: 2-4, 2 R, BB, K; (.302/.404/.420)
- RF Eudy Pina: 2-3, 2 R, HR (7), 2 RBI, BB, 2 SB (8), PO; (.242/.336/.432)
- 1B Jayce Boyd: 2-2, 2 R, RBI, 3 BB; (.361/.441/.494)
- C Kevin Plawecki: 1-4, BB; (.314/.390/.494)
- DH Greg Pron: 1-3, 2B, 2 RBI, BB, K; (.189/.320/.262)
- LF Stefan Sabol: 0-5, R, RBI, K; (.215/.309/.351)
- RHP Gabriel Ynoa: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K; (74.2 IP, 2.77 ERA, 61 H, 24 R, 23 ER, 9 BB, 63 K, 7 HR)
Star of the Night
The star goes to Jayce Boyd for getting on-base five times in five appearances. Over the last four games, he's gone 11 for 12 with five walks.
Goat of the Night
The Gopher Man, Rob Carson.
