Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (3-3)_______________________________________


The 51s plated a run with bases loaded in the 1st thanks to a Johnny Monell sac fly, but were unable to capitalize further as Eric Campbell was picked off at second after Alex Castellanos flew out, the rare 7-5-4 double play. Steven Matz could've used more than that single run, as he allowed two in the bottom of the frame, giving Sacramento the lead. After loading the bases with no outs, Adam Duvall tied the game with a sac fly for the first out. Ronny Cedeno grounded into what should've been an inning-ending double play, but Danny Muno hesitated and Cedeno was able to safely reach base, allowing the second run to cross the plate. The River Cats added an insurance run in the bottom of the 4th on a Juan Perez RBI double, but the 51s quickly negated it in the top of the 5th when Darrell Ceciliani launched a home run over the right center wall. Ultimately, the run wouldn't matter as starter Robert Coello and relievers Curtis Partch and Hunter Strickland held onto the narrow one-run lead for the win.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (4-2)_____________________________________


BINGHAMTON 7, ERIE 6 / 7  (Box)

The B-Mets got things going early, plating four runs in the top of the 1st thanks to a grand slam off the bat of the indomitable Aderlin Rodriguez. They'd need that early cushion, as John Gant scuffled in his three-plus innings of work. After Chase Huchingson allowed the tying run to cross the plate in the bottom of the 5th, Gavin Cecchini led off the 6th with a solo shot to left center to give Binghamton a 7-6 lead. Jon Velasquez made things interesting in the 7th by allowing a double, but he shut the door, notching his second save of the year and giving the B-Mets the victory in the first game of their doubleheader.


ERIE 2, BINGHAMTON 1 / 7 (Box)

The B-Mets were not as lucky in Game Two, the make up game for Monday night's rainout. Seth Lugo was sharp, tossing six innings of shutout ball, scattering three singles while striking out six. His Erie counterpart, Jeff Ferrell, was just as solid for most of the game, matching Lugo's zeroes with zeroes of his own. Binghamton finally got on the board in the 5th, thanks to a Brandon Nimmo home run, his second of the short year. Dario Alvarez came in to pitch the bottom of the 7th, and unfortunately, he was unable to protect Binghamton's narrow 1-0 lead. After quickly getting the first two outs, he allowed a home run to Dean Green. Jeff McVaney, the SeaWolves' right fielder came to the plate next. He singled on a groundball to third, advanced on a throwing error by Dustin Lawley, and then took third after Alvarez uncorked a wild pitch. James Robbins, Erie's first baseman knocked a groundball up the middle that wound up in centerfield, and that was all she wrote for Binghamton.

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


Hiram Burgos limited the St. Lucie Mets to a single hit- a Michael Conforto ground rule double in the 1st- over the seven innings he was on the mound. His replacements, Trevor Seidenberger in the 8th and Casey Medlen were just as stingy, allowing a single hit and walking one batter in the final two frames of the game. Suffice to say, St. Lucie was unable to cash in, and were shut out for their third loss of the season.

Bobby Parnell, making his first rehab appearance, pitched the 1st. He gave up two singles, but otherwise tossed a scoreless innings, striking out a batter. Vic Black followed him in the 2nd and allowed a solo homer to Milwaukee Brewer top prospect Victor Roache, giving the Manatees the only run they would need. Miller Diaz, the originally scheduled starter, came in to pitch in the 3rd and was solid over his five innings, but no amount of pitching brilliance would wake the St. Lucie lumber from their slumber.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (2-4)__________________________________

ROME 2, SAVANNAH 0 / 8 (Box)

The Rome Braves put up a two-spot in the bottom of the 1st against Sand Gnat starter Scarlyn Reyes, and those two runs would eventually stand as the only runs of the game in this rain-shortened eight-inning affair.
