Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (2-2)_______________________________________


The Las Vegas 51s split their series with Fresno and evened their record to 2-2 thanks to a handful of late inning runs. Down by a run in the 7th inning, Dilson Herrera hit a sacrifice fly with bases loaded to tie the game. A few batters later, Alex Castellanos and Cory Vaughn drew back-to-back walks to force in two more runs, making it a 7-5 ballgame. The 51s bullpen somehow held onto the lead despite three relievers combining for four hits, three hit basemen, and a walk in the game's final three innings.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (3-1)_____________________________________


Luis Cessa got the start on a sunny, 62-degree afternoon over in Akron, and the right-hander absolutely shined. He faced one over the minimum over his seven innings, striking out eight Akron batters. Though he was not as efficient or impressive, RubberDucks starter Mike Clevinger matched zeroes with Cessa through the first few innings of the game, and we had ourselves a pitcher's duel early on.

Brandon Nimmo broke the 0-0 tie in the 6th, belting a fly ball over the right center wall for his first home run of the season. The B-Mets piled on late, adding two runs in the top of the 8th on RBI hits by Jared King and T.J. Rivera, and three in the top of the 9th thanks to back-to-back triples by Gavin Cecchini and Gilbert Gomez.

After pitching an effective 8th, Beck Wheeler returned to the mound to pitch the 9th. He walked the first two men he faced, and then allowed an RBI single to centerfielder Ollie Linton, ending Akron's 26 inning scoreless streak. The ‘Ducks plated another run, making it a 6-2 ballgame, but Wheeler was able to record those final outs and prevent things from getting out of hand.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (3-1)_____________________________________


A perfect 3-0 to begin the season, St. Lucie handed the ball to 2012 11th round draft pick Logan Taylor to keep the momentum going. The big right-hander out of East Oklahoma State College immediately ran into trouble, giving up a solo home run to the first batter he faced, Austin Meadows. A few batters later, he gave up another solo homer to shortstop JaCoby Jones. In the 2nd, a handful of hits, a walk, and a Dom Smith error led to two more runs crossing the plate for the Marauders, making it a 4-0 game. Taylor luckily recovered his cool and tossed three scoreless innings after his early troubles, allowing only one hit. Amed Rosario started the 5th inning off with a double, and would be the first of five St. Lucie runs to cross the plate that inning. All in all, eight men came to the plate that inning against Bradenton starter Steven Brault and his replacement, Steven Brault. Yeixon Ruiz did the most damage that inning, tripling down the line with bases loaded to plate three runs and give the St. Lucie Mets a 5-4 lead.

After 83 pitches through five innings, Logan Taylor was replaced by Ricky Knapp. After striking out the first two batters he faced, number 32 ran into trouble. He allowed three hits, a walk, and a balk, giving Bradenton back the lead. This time, the Marauders would not relinquish it, and St. Lucie lost their first ballgame of the 2015 season.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (1-3)__________________________________


The Savannah Sand Gnats had ample opportunities, but they were unable to beat West Virginia on Sunday afternoon and split their four-game set against the Power. After getting out to an early 1-0 led against Josh Prevost, Trace Tam Sing roped a liner to left with bases loaded to plate three runs in the 4th. The Sand Gnats responded with two of their own in the top of the 5th on a two-run homer off the bat of John Mora to make it a competitive ballgame, but a handful of insurance runs late in the game off of lefty David Roseboom put the game out of reach for Savannah.
