Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (81-63; 1-2)_______________________________________

GAME THREE: RENO 7, LAS VEGAS 5 (Box)

Las Vegas led 3-1 in the third and 5-2 after the top of the fifth, but the Reno Aces stormed back with five runs of their own in the bottom of the inning to take a 2-1 lead in the PCL Championship Series. Noah Syndergaard got the start for the 51s and was solid through four frames, though he pitched into that fateful fifth without retiring a single batter faced. Two walks sandwiched between a pair of singles, the latter a run-scoring hit off the bat of Roger Kieschnick, prompted manager Wally Backman to summon Miguel Socolovich from the pen. The right-handed reliever got former top prospect Andy Marte to strikeout swinging, but ex-Met phenom Mike Jacobs changed the course of the game, and potentially the PCL playoffs, one batter later by blasting his second home run in as many days. The round-tripper turned a 5-4 Reno deficit into the 7-5 final score and forces the 51s to hope Logan Verrett can extend the Triple-A season by at least one more game this evening.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (83-59; 1-2)_____________________________________

GAME THREE: PORTLAND 6, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

On Thursday, the Portland Sea Dogs skunked Binghamton en route to an easy 7-0 victory. Through five innings, it appeared Friday's game would chart a similar course as the Dogs jumped out to a 3-0 lead against Steven Matz. Portland plated one run in the second on a bases loaded sac fly, then tacked on a pair in the fifth frame thanks to back-to-back RBI hits from the recently signed Rusney Castillo and Mike Miller.

Binghamton's bats, however, showed a bit more life yesterday than they did in Game Two of the best-of five series. Xorge Carrillo laced a one-out double in the sixth and came around to score when Brandon Nimmo connected for a two-bagger of his own. One batter later, the young man from Cheyenne cut the deficit to a single run by trotting home on a wild pitch. Travis Taijeron completed the comeback in the following frame, pulling an Eduardo Rodriguez offering down the left field line for a game-tying double.

Unfortunately, that's as close as the B-Mets would get to winning. Four singles off of relievers Paul Sewald and Chase Huchingson in the bottom half of the seventh led to three unanswered Portland tallies. Travis Taijeron got another shot to play the hero with two on and two out in the ninth, but he flied out to end the game. It'll be up to Rainy Lara to stave off elimination today.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (36-33 / 76-62)_____________________________________

SEASON ENDED

FINAL STATS

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (84-51; 0-1)__________________________________

GAME TWO: ASHEVILLE 2, SAVANNAH 1 (Suspended / Box)

According to the official Facebook page of the Sand Gnats, Game Two of the Sally League Division Championship series between Savannah and Asheville was suspended with one out in the bottom of the eighth due to "unplayable field conditions" at Historic Grayson Stadium. Play will resume today at 4 p.m. with Matt Oberste at the plate and Michael Conforto on second base representing the potential tying run.

One person who won't factor into the outcome later this afternoon but deserves commendation is Savannah starter John Gant, who fanned ten batters in six-plus innings while allowing just a solo shot to masher Correlle Prime.
