Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (45-32)_______________________________________


Leading off the ninth inning, the 51s found themselves down 1-0 and only three more outs to do something about it. Ryan Lollis hit a solo home run off of Rainy Lara in the third, and that constituted all of the scoring up until that point. Wilfredo Tovar led off the ninth with a single, and after reaching third on an error, scored on a Brooks Conrad sac fly, tying the game. The River Cats came out swinging in the top of the tenth, and plated a pair of runs. Down by two going into the bottom of the tenth, Las Vegas was once again down to their final three runs. Dan Rohlfing led off the inning with a walk, but Cory Vaughn and Danny Muno both made outs. Wally went to his bench to pinch hit for the light hitting and found bottled lightning in the form of Anthony Recker, who blasted another pinch hit home run to tie things up. Kirk Nieuwenhuis followed the homer with a walk, and came home to score the winning run when Brooks Conrad doubled into left.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (38-36)_____________________________________


After four scoreless innings, the B-Mets broke the 0-0 tie with a three-run fifth. Gavin Cecchini did all the damage, lining a double into left with bases loaded to plate all three runners. Luis Cessa, meanwhile, continued his "where did he come from" run, tossing seven shutout innings against the RubberDucks. At 82 pitches going into the eighth, he might've been able to go another inning, but Pedro Lopez elected to play it smart and brought in Matt Koch. Koch did his job, and kept the shutout going. Paul Sewald came in for his fourteenth save and unfortunately allowed a run on a Yandy Diaz home run. He was able to close out the inning, however, and did indeed pick up that save.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (37-37 / 2-2)_____________________________________

TAMPA 6, ST. LUCIE 0 (Box)

The St. Lucie line-up, particularly the bottom two-thirds, looked dreadful against Tampa Yankee starter Cale Coshow and relievers Chris Smith and Giovanny Gallegos. The team as a whole managed only four hits- a Jeff McNeil single in the first, a Daniel Murphy single in the fourth, and two Dom Smith singles, one in the second and one in the ninth. Kevin McGowan was solid over six innings, but lost steam in the seventh. After putting two baserunners on, Mike Hepple was brought in and promptly gave up four runs- two of McGowans and two of his own. After Hepple gave up another run in the eighth and put some more baserunners on, David Roseboom had to come in to stop the bleeding. The offense showed little life in the bottom of the inning, and that was that.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (39-33 / 0-2)__________________________________


The ballgame was suspended due to rain and will resume on June 29. The score was tied 5-5 in the top of the fifth.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (6-3)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 6, AUBURN 5 / 6 (Box)

Rain cut the Cyclones-Doubleday game short, but it came at just the right time to put one in the win column for Brooklyn. The Cyclones plated four runs in the top of the third off of Washington's first round draft pick in 2014, Erick Fedde but Auburn came right back, scoring three of their own off of Michael Gibbons. The Doubledays tied things up in the fourth, but Brooklyn plated two in the fifth to take a 6-4 lead. Auburn cut it down to 6-5 in the bottom of the fifth, but never got a chance to add to it, as the game was called before they got another turn at-bat.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (3-3)__________________________


Not too often does a pitcher take a perfect game into the ninth and his team loses? That's the Appalachian League for you, where anything goes, and the -points- don't matter. For eight innings, Harol Gonzalez kept the Bluefield Blue Jays out of the hit column. He was visibly tiring in the late innings, but despite that, and the fact that he was at around 80 pitches and on normal rest, manager Luis Rivera sent him out for the ninth. He immediately gave up a hit to Mattingly Romanin to lead off the ninth, breaking up the perfecto. In an even more dire turn of events, Gabriel Feliz proceeded to give up seven runs (two of Gonzalez' and five of his own) in less than an inning. Suddenly, the K-Mets were down by three runs in a 7-4 ballgame. This being the minor leagues and all, of course Kingsport scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth to tie things up. And because we can never have nice things, of course Bluefield scored a run in the top of the tenth that Kingsport was not able to answer.
