Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (32–17)______________________________________


Dan Straily and the River Cats came into Cashman Field on Saturday and silenced the 51s' bats for most of the game to go up two games to none in this four-game series. Las Vegas managed a paltry three hits against Straily over his seven innings of work, failing to score until the eighth inning when they finally managed to put a run on the board on a Josh Satin sacrifice fly. The 51s managed only one more run, when Daniel Muno doubled home Taylor Teagarden after Teagarden singled with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning. Joel Carreno pitched six innings of eight-hit, two-run ball (only one of those runs was earned), striking out seven and walking two. With the loss, Carreno's record on the season dropped to 1–1. Today's game kicks off at 3:05 ET when the River Cats and Josh Lindblom will square off against the 51s and Giancarlo Alvarado.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (26–21)______________________________________


The B-Mets fought back from a 4–0 deficit to defeat the Rock Cats on Saturday. All of the Rock Cats' scoring was done off of right-hander Hansel Robles, who was touched up for six runs in his 5.2 innings. The bullpen stanched the bleeding and handled the final 3.1 innings, striking out a combined five batters while walking none. Meanwhile, the B-Mets' bats churned out fifteen hits and eight runs, including bombs by Kevin Plawecki and Travis TaijeronJohn Church picked up the win in relief to move his record to 2–0 and Chasen Bradford pitched the ninth to record his tenth save. The B-Mets have won the first two games of this four-game series and will send Angel Cuan to the mound tonight at 6:35 ET to try to assure a series victory.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (30–19)______________________________________


It was a close one between the Mets and the Cardinals until the ninth inning when St. Lucie finally put the game out of reach.

Ryan Fraser pitched the final two frames to earn his first save of the season, allowing the Cardinals' only other run.

Star of the Night
Cam Maron hoisted St. Lucie onto his shoulders on Saturday and put up a man-sized game, driving in four of the team's five runs. That's more offensive output than I managed during the entirety of my high school career.

Goat of the Night
Brandon Allen of the 51s is the goat, because 0–4 with a strikeout and four runners left on base and because that makes Cesar Puello angry.
