Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (38-28)_______________________________________


An early rain delay washed both starters out of the game early, but at the end of the day, nobody is going to remember who pitched, on either side (Darin Gorski and Brett Tomko, by the way). Yesterday afternoon's game was all about offense. Kai Gronauer, Allan Dykstra, Danny Muno, and Brandon Allen all went yard, while Travis d'Arnaud did so twice.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (35-30)_____________________________________


The game started out competitive, but the B-Mets continued piling on, eventually beating the RubberDucks into submission. Binghamton loaded the bases in the 1st, but were only able to cash in for one run, a Matt Clark walk to force in a run. When a rehabbing Nick Swisher drove in a pair in the bottom of the inning, it looked like that failure to come through with men on base would haunt the team. That would not be the case, though, as the B-Mets cashed in on numerous opportunities in subsequent innings. They regained the lead in the second, thanks to a Brian Burgamy three-run homer, and never looked back. In the 6th, the Wichita State alumnus added another three-run shot, and in the 8th, Binghamton plated three more runs on three hits, two walks, and an error; Burgamy drew a walk with bases loaded that inning to force in a run, bringing his RBI total to seven for the night, increasing his total RBI total for the season by nearly 33% in one night. Adam Kolarek replaced Matthew Bowman in the 8th, and ran into some trouble, giving up three runs, but Ryan Fraser was brought in to get a handle on the inning, which he did. Fraser gave up a run of his own in the 9th, but the lead the B-Mets had built up at that point was so great that the single run did not make a difference.

After dropping five of six games last week, Binghamton has won four of their last five. They are set to finish their current series with Akron tonight, and will then return home to take on Erie over the weekend.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (36-29)________________________________________



Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (42-20)__________________________________



The Sand Gnats didn't get in a game last night because of rain, but that didn't prevent them from winning. For the second consecutive season, and the fourth time in five years, the Savannah Sand Gnats clinched the South Atlantic League South Division First-Half Championship. The South Atlantic League uses winning percentage to determine tiebreakers, and with the cancellation of the game, the Asheville Tourists have been mathematically eliminated from ever possessing a higher winning percentage in the first half than the Sand Gnats.

Savannah will face the eventual second half winner in a best-of-three series on September 3rd. Whoever wins that will go on face the North Division champion in a best-of-five series for South Atlantic League supremacy.

Star of the Night

Travis d'Arnaud and Brian Burgamy both had two home run games, so it's obviously between the two of them. Travis d'Arnaud, we figure, will have more games like this one. Brian Burgamy, who knows? Because it'll give his mom something to gush about to her friends, I'm going to give Burgamy the Star of the Night
