AAA - Las Vegas 51's (5-4)_______________________________________


Tyler Chatwood kept the 51s bats dormant over six strong innings in the home opener last night in Las Vegas. The game began inauspiciously for the AAA club, as Carlos Torres found himself down two runs four batters into the game after a leadoff single, an error by Omar Quintanilla that placed runners at the corners, a double which plated one run but also cut off a runner trying to score on a slick 7-6-2 putout (Hoffmann-Quintanilla-D'Arnaud), and another double which plated the previous batter. The Sky Sox brought nine men to the plate in the first and took a 6-0 lead in the fifth buoyed by solo home runs from Charlie Culberson and Tyler Colvin. The 51s were able to spare themselves the ignominy of being shut out as Reese Havens singled home Jamie Hoffman in the bottom of the fifth, but outside of Josh Satin popping out with the bases loaded in the 8th, the offensive threats were kept to a minimum at Cashman field last night.

AA - Binghamton Mets (5-3)_____________________________________


Yuck. Just be glad the B-Mets won this and move on, as five pitchers allowed eighteen hits (albeit the extent of that damage was six doubles) and five walks. It takes a special night to allow 23 baserunners in nine innings and still win by eight. To be fair, the Fisher Cats pitchers allowed thirteen hits and ten walks of their own, allowing Bingo to hang fifteen on them despite allowing one double, triple, and home run apiece. Trailing 5-1 going into the bottom of the fifth inning, the Mets went on a scoring skein, sending sixteen batters to the plate in an eleven-run inning (on only seven hits, I told you this was ugly) to take a 12-5 lead that would (mercifully) never be relinquished.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (6-2)________________________________________

ST. LUCIE 6, BRADENTON 5 (12) (Box)

Jacob DeGrom threw pretty well last night, and thankfully the (S-?)Mets got him off the hook of losing tying the game 4-4 in the eighth. T.J. Chism blew the save in the ninth, but St. Lucie managed a run in the top of the twelfth and Hamilton Bennett nailed down his first save of the year sending the (L-?)Mets to the FSL clubhouse spread happy.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (4-4)__________________________________


The Sand Gnats struck out 11 batters in eight innings! That's good. Kevin Plawecki had their two extra base hits in a 3-for-4 effort! That's good. The Sand Gnats went 1-for-8 with RISP! That's bad. Gabriel Ynoa allowed eight hits in four plus innings! That's bad too! Despite Plawecki's prowess and the bat-missing by Savannah pitchers, it was not enough as our beloved Sally Leaguers fell 5-2 in Rome last night.

Star of the Night

Cory Vaughn wears the stud pants for the night after an admirable showing in an otherwise hideous win for Binghamton. Honorable mentions go to Kevin Plawecki, and the bullpens of Las Vegas and Savannah respectively.

Goat(s) of the Night

Looking at you, Cam Maron and Aderlin Rodriguez. A combined 0-for-13 with three strikeouts is still that even in a win. Honorable mentions go to every Binghamton pitcher last night not named Mark Cohoon, and Carlos Torres.
