Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (29-24)_______________________________________


It's a good thing Las Vegas went on a huge winning streak earlier in the year, because with their loss to Memphis, they've lost seven in a row. Tim Cooney dominated the 51s line-up last night, tossing a complete game shutout. Matt Bowman, on the other hand, was not as impressive. The Princeton grad was fine for the first couple of innings, scattering two hits and a walk through four innings, but in the 5th, things fell apart. After starting the inning off with a hit, he served up a home run to centerfielder Rafael Ortega, giving the Redbirds a 2-0 lead. After loading the bases, Dan Johnson singled, driving in two more runs. Bowman mercifully got out of the inning without further damage, escaping with the bases loaded. Cooney continued putting up zeroes as the 51s bullpen did their best to keep their team in the game. The death knell came in the 8th, when a costly fielding error by Wilfredo Tovar allowed two more runs to score. With this diminished Las Vegas line-up, a 6 run deficit was simply too much.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (26-25)_____________________________________


The B-Mets dropped their first game against the Yankees' Eastern League affiliate, starting the month of June off inauspiciously. Binghamton never actually had a lead in the game, but tied the Thunder lead three different times. After Trenton jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 1st, Michael Conforto tied it 1-1 with an RBI single (he was thrown out trying to stretch it into a double). When Trenton took the lead again in the 4th, Conforto tied it up again with an RBI force out. After the Thunder scored two in the top of the 6th, the B-Mets plated a run in the bottom of the inning and one in the 7th to tie it yet again. In the 8th, with Adam Kolarek on the mound, Trenton plated two more runs. Binghamton was unable to answer, and that was that.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (27-25)_____________________________________


St. Lucie held on to a one-run lead to beat Bradenton in the opening game of their two-game series, making it five in a row for the Mets' High-A affiliate. Rob Whalen was a little shaky, giving up two runs in the 1st and two more in the 3rd, but the offense bailed him out in the 5th. It was 4-2 Marauders when Phillip Evans stepped up to bat to begin the inning and ended 7-4 St. Lucie when Colton Plaia struck out to end it. Matt Oberste, Dominic Smith and Stefan Sabol all drove in runs, Oberste with a two-run single, Smith with an RBI double and Sabol with a two-RBI double. Edioglis Villasmil gave a run right back in the bottom of the inning, and Kelly Secrest gave up a run in the 7th, but Akeel Morris shut Bradenton down in the 8th and 9th to secure the win and notch his ninth save of the season.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (25-27)__________________________________


Casey Meisner, the de facto ace of the Sand Gnat pitching staff, was having a very good 2015 season coming into this game, and the right-hander improved upon already impressive numbers last night. He lowered his ERA for the season from 2.02 to 1.88 with eight plus innings of one-run ball. Initially, Carlos Polanco was just as effective as Meisner was, blanking Savannah for four innings, but the Sand Gnat bats came alive in the 5th. With Wuilmer Becerra at third, Jon Leroux drove a line drive into right to score the game's first run, and Vicente Lupo drove him in one batter later with a two-run homer over the left field wall. In the 7th, Wuilmer Becerra added a little bit of insurance in the form of his sixth home run of the year. The Tourists finally got in the board in the bottom of the 9th, scoring a run on a tiring Meisner, but David Roseboom got the last two outs and squashed any potential Asheville comeback.
