Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (6-7)_______________________________________


PCL gonna PCL, folks.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (8-5)_____________________________________


Josh Rodriguez homered- his second of the year- in the bottom of the 2nd to give the B-Mets an early lead, but the SeaWolves got the run back a few innings later on an RBI double off the bat of shortstop Josh Prince. Binghamton starter Matt Koch pitched well, hopefully putting his early season struggles behind him. The Cherokee, Iowa native went seven innings, allowing one run on five hits. He threw 90 pitches, 60 of them for strikes- and tallied a lot of swings and misses as well.

Paul Sewald came in for Koch in the bottom of the 8th and gave up a run, giving Erie the lead. The B-Mets bailed the reliever out by scoring four in the bottom of the inning. Dustin Lawley got the scoring party started by blasting a solo home run, his second of the year. Gilbert Gomez knocked in a runner a few batters later, and with bases loaded, Jayce Boyd dumped a soft liner into right field that plated two more. Dario Alvarez got the first two outs in the 9th, and wanting to play the percentages and ensure the victory, had Jon Velasquez come in to get the final out, the first time in his career that he's been called on to save back-to-back games. The Bronx native threw one pitch, but it was good enough to get the out and rack up his fourth save of the year.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (7-6)_____________________________________


JUPITER 3, ST. LUCIE 1 / 8 (Box)

In Game One of the Jupiter/St. Lucie double-header, we had ourselves a pretty good pitching duel. Miller Diaz and Jarlin Garcia matched each other zero for zero, until St. Lucie scratched out a run in the bottom of the 5th, when Maikis De La Cruz led the inning off with a home run to left field. Bobby Parnell replaced Diaz in the 7th, and the rehabbing right-hander immediately ran into trouble. Two walks and two singles later, the Hammerheads tied up the score 1-1 and chased Parnell from the game. Akeel Morris navigated out of the inning, but ran into trouble of his own in the top of the 8th, when he allowed two runs of his own. Juancito Martinez, who had thrown a flawless 7th, threw a flawless 8th, and that was that.


ST. LUCIE 10, JUPITER 4 / 7 (Box)

Unlike Game One, which had been a low scoring affair, both teams came out blazing in Game Two- apt for a game that was supposed to have been played on 4/20. The Hammerheads scored two runs in the 1st, but Robert Gsellman thankfully settled down. The St. Lucie Mets, on the other hand, pounded Jupiter starter Sean Townsley for seven runs on ten hits in the first three innings. Jupiter touched relievers Julian Hilario and Robert Coles late in the game to add on anther two runs in the 6th and 7th, respectively, while St. Lucie had one final outburst in the 6th, plating three more runs.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (4-7)__________________________________


The Sand Gnats took an early lead, scoring a run in the bottom of the 2nd on a Jean Rodriguez single, but Scarlyn Reyes gave up back-to-back-to-back hits in the top of the 4th that allowed Rome to score two runs, and that would be our final score. Other than that little blip, Reyes pitched well. He gave up only one other hit in his six innings of work, and walked one, all while striking out seven Braves. The Sand Gnat offense was just unable to do much against Chad Sobotka. They had a few chances against his replacements, Bradley Roney and Caleb Dirks, late in the game, but every time the team got men in scoring position, they were shut down.
