Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (26-14)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 2, TACOMA 0 (Box)

The 51s wrapped up their four game set with the Rainiers yesterday afternoon, sending Duane Below to the hill for the matinee match-up. Shifted into the rotation in mid-May, the minor league veteran had been forgettable if not serviceable as a starter, allowing seven runs in ten innings (6.30 ERA). Against Tacoma yesterday afternoon, Below was a little bit better than forgettable if not serviceable, tossing a complete game shutout. His Rainier counterpart, Forrest Snow, wasn't too bad himself, but the 2010 36th round draft pick allowed a Travis Taijeron home run in the 2nd and another run in the 6th, sealing his team's fate and allowing Las Vegas to split the series.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (22-16)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 7, HARRISBURG 6 (Box)

Binghamton kicked off their series against the Harrisburg Senators on the right foot with a narrow 7-6 victory over the Nationals' Eastern League affiliate. The game was a back-and-forth affair that saw the B-Mets take the lead in the 7th, against Harrisburg's bullpen. In that inning, Xorge Carrillo blasted his third home run of the season to score a run, Aderlin Rodriguez knocked a pinch-hit RBI double into left field to tie the game, and Gavin Cecchini gave Binghamton the lead with a two-run homer, his third of the year. The lead was the B-Mets' second of the night. They got on the board first, plating two runs in the top of the 1st, but coughed up the lead when Rainy Lara allowed four runs in the bottom of the 2nd. After Binghamton retook the lead in the 7th, Beck Wheeler and Adam Kolarek tossed 1-2-3 innings. Because nothing ever comes easy in Mets land, Paul Sewald had issues in the 9th and made things interesting. Dustin Lawley booted a grounder to third to start the inning, setting the tone for the inning. A few batters later, Sewald allowed a run to score and loaded the bases. Fortunately, he fanned Mario Lisson to end the game, earning his sixth save of the season.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (17-22)_____________________________________

PALM BEACH 3, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)

The Palm Beach Cardinals shutout the St. Lucie Mets 3-0, splitting their series at 1-1 and setting the stage for a showdown at Roger Dean Stadium later tonight to determine the winner of the series. Miller Diaz and Trey Nielsen traded zeroes early on, but Diaz blinked first, allowing a Carson Kelly single in the 6th that plated two runs. Kelly later scored a run off of Robert Coles in the 8th as well, driving in all three Palm Beach runs. The Palm Beach bullpen stood fast after Nielsen left the game and finished the shutout. All in all, St. Lucie stranded twelve runners on base, including leaving the bases loaded not only once, but twice in the first four innings.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (15-22)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 4, AUGUSTA 0 (Box)

Corey Oswalt and Matt Gage traded zeroes early on, but around 9 PM, it began raining and the umpires called for the tarp to cover the field at Historic Grayson Stadium. After an almost two hour rain delay, the game resumed. The Sand Gnats were the first to get on the board, plating three runs in the bottom of the 7th inning. With bases loaded and no outs, Patrick Biondi grounded into a double play that scored a run. The next batter, Luis Guillorme, reached on an error, allowing the inning to continue and Tomas Nido crossing the plate to count. With Jean Rodriguez at the plate, Guillorme stole second and scored when Rodriguez laced a single into left. In the bottom of the 8th, they scored another run when John Mora bunted for a hit, was moved up by a productive Stefan Sabol out, and driven in by Eudor Garcia.
