AAA - Las Vegas 51's (10-7)_______________________________________


Elevation ball! The 51s won last night in Colorado Springs (the highest elevation of any stadium in professional baseball), as Chris Schwinden threw five and one-third innings of unspectacular but solid ball to get the win. Las Vegas led the game wire-to-wire, taking a 3-0 lead courtesy of a Zach Lutz RBI single and a Jamie Hoffmann double which plated two 51s in the first inning and never relinquishing it. In spite of leading throughout, there were still some Pepto-Bismol moments as the Sky Sox cut a 7-3 lead into a one-run deficit in the bottom of the seventh before Sean Henn struck out opposing pitcher (c'est la vie) Jeff Manship with runners on the corners, extinguishing the last true threat Colorado Springs would pose the rest of the night. Vegas would add two runs in the eighth and another run in the ninth to propel themselves to the four-run victory.

AA - Binghamton Mets (9-7)_____________________________________


Montero to Leathersich to Walters. Game over. The three allowed five hits and three walks while striking out ten in yesterday's jewel in Manchester. Cory Vaughn went deep for the second straight game, a two-run stroke in the eighth that broke the game open into a 3-0 lead. Wilfredo Tovar showed signs of life with two doubles and a run scored.

Hi-A - St. Lucie Mets (10-6)________________________________________
FT. MYERS 5, ST. LUCIE 6 (Box)

You go Domingo Tapia! And a Frank Frank sighting as well! Randy Fontanez had a nice 6-2 ninth-inning lead before giving up a hit and walking three without recording an out. Hamilton Bennett allowed 2 of his three inherited runners to score, but struck out two in his inning of work to get his second save of the year. The game ended on a 6-2 Matt Reynolds to Albert Cordero putout, cutting a second Miracle runner from trying to score on an infield single. Take 'em any way you can boys.

Lo-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (9-7)__________________________________


Rainy Lara gets the win! It's ugly, but a win nonetheless in the ledger. Relieving Lara were Hunter Carnevale, Jake Kuebler, and Bret Mitchell who pitched 3.2 innings of one-hit relief and the latter obtaining his first save of the season. Oh, Brandon Nimmo: still good.

Star of the Night

Rafael Montero rules! As do you in a slightly less spectacular fashion, Domingo Tapia!

Goat of the Night

Oh Randy Fontanez and Gonzalez Germen. Didn't your mothers tell you not to play with fire in relief?
