Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (37-29)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 10, SALT LAKE 6 (Box)

And on the mound for your Binghamton Mets, number 47, Rainy Lara...Swerve! Originally scheduled to start for the B-Mets last night, Lara received something of a surprise promotion and was immediately thrown into the fire, taking the mound for the 51s against the Salt Lake Bees. Lara tossed a scoreless 1st, and in the bottom of the inning Matt Reynolds hit a solo homer to give Las Vegas an early 1-0 lead. When Lara gave up the tying run in the 2nd, the Las Vegas offense bailed him out by plating two more runs, putting the 51s back up 3-1. After allowing another run in the 3rd, the wheels came off for Lara in the 4th. The Bani native allowed four runs that inning on two triples, a double, and a single, making it a 6-3 ballgame. The 51s were down, but they were not out. In the bottom of the inning, Travis Taijeron hit a two-run homer, his twelfth of the year, to bring the 51s within a run. Former big leaguer Vinnie Pestano did not have a good 7th inning for the Bees. Wilfredo Tovar got the scoring going by driving in T.J. Rivera to tie the game. A few batters later, Johnny Monell drove in two with a line drive into center. Kirk Nieuwenhuis eventually drove in Monell to make it a three-run inning. Las Vegas added one more in the 8th to give Chase Bradford a comfortable cushion for his sixth save of the year.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (33-30)_____________________________________

BINGHAMTON 6, PORTLAND 1 (Box)

The B-Mets scored early and often, taking it to Portland in front of their own fans, their sixth straight victory at Hadlock Field dating back to least season. Binghamton plated runs in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th, while Gabriel Ynoa recovered from a shaky 1st and blanked the Sea Dogs for the rest of his time on the mound.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (34-31)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 5, CLEARWATER 2 (Box)

St. Lucie jumped out to an early lead and made it count, never trailing in their 5-2 win over the Threshers. The Mets plated four runs in the 3rd inning, with Brandon Nimmo, Matt Oberste, Dominic Smith, and Amed Rosario all driving in one runner apiece. Buttressed by a decent cushion, John Gant continued rolling, putting up zeroes. Leading 5-0 after a Maikis De La Cruz RBI single in the top of the 6th, Gant ran into trouble. The Threshers notched four straight hits and scored twice to make it a 5-2 ballgame. After loading the bases, Luis Rojas pulled Gant and turned to the rarely used Edioglis Villasmil. Appearing in only his second game of the year, Villasmil induced a clutch double play to end the inning and stop the threat. He then rewarded Rojas' faith in him by tossing two more scoreless innings. Robert Coles took over in the 9th and notched his second save of the year, filling in for Akeel Morris. The St. Lucie Mets now have won four in a row.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (35-30)__________________________________

SAVANNAH 6, ASHEVILLE 2 (Box)

With five games left to play in the first half, the Sand Gnats moved back into a tie for first place with the Greenville Drive with their 6-2 victory over the Tourists last night. Casey Delgado pitched a terrific game, allowing two runs on six hits over seven plus innings. After tossing four perfect innings, he ran into a little trouble in the 5th, allowing Ashville to score those two runs on four straight singles. He recovered and shut down the Tourists for the rest of his time on the mound. Down 2-1, Savannah tied the game in the 7th on a Tomas Nido single, and then broke the game open in the 8th, plating four more runs.

Since May 25th, Savannah is 10-2 at Historic Greyson. They'll look to keep the good luck flowing tomorrow, when Martires Arias takes on Ryan Castellani in game two of the series.
