Triple-A - Las Vegas 51's (29-26)_______________________________________
MEMPHIS 10, LAS VEGAS 9 (Box)
The Wally for manager crowd seems to have quieted a bit as the 51s ran their losing streak to nine games last night. A six-run third helped stake Vegas to a 8-4 lead, but a disastrous rehab appearance from Vic Black, and a couple unearned runs of Chasen Bradford means the bad times roll on for the 51s in the River City
- CF Cory Vaughn:2-5, R, K
- 3B Daniel Muno: 0-4, R, 2 BB, K, E (2)
- 2B Wilfredo Tovar: 1-4, RBI
- SS Matt Reynolds: 2-4, R, 3 RBI, BB, K
- LHP Darin Gorski: 6 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, 1 HR
- RHP Chasen Bradford: 1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
REHAB ALERT: Vic Black pitched a third of an inning and gave up four runs on two hits, two walks, and a bomb. That's...not ideal.
Double-A - Binghamton Mets (26-27)_____________________________________
TRENTON 2, BINGHAMTON 0 (Box)
The B-Mets managed just two hits (both from Michael Conforto) and fell under .500 despite a strong start from Luis Cessa, who lowered his ERA to 2.81 on the year.
- 1B Aderlin Rodriguez: 0-3
- CF Jared King: 0-2, BB
- SS Gavin Cecchini: 0-4, K, E (12)
- LF Michael Conforto: 2-4, 2B, K; Adjusting well so far.
- RHP Luis Cessa: 7.2 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K, 1 HR; Cessa is probably a future reliever, but dialed it up to 96 when I saw him last month.
Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (27-27)_____________________________________
PALM BEACH 3, ST. LUCIE 2 (Box)
Alex Reyes and John Gant dueled in the Palm Beach sun, but in the end the baby Cardinals walked it off, of Mike Hepple and Kyle Regnault.
- 1B Dominic Smith: 0-3, R, BB, K; Had his hitting streak finally snapped, so maybe Jeff Moore's twitter mentions get a rest.
- 3B Jeff McNeil:1-4, K, CS
- SS Amed Rosario: 1-4
- 2B Philip Evans: 0-1
- RHP John Gant: 8 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 9 K, 1 HR; I liked what I saw from Gant in Binghamton, but it was an aggressive assignment and he struggled with his control. Hopefully gets back on track in the Florida State League.
REHAB ALERT: Dilson Herrera and Travis d'Arnaud both got three at-bats. Herrera went 1-3 with a double and 2 Ks, and Donuts went 1-2 with a walk.
Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (27-27)__________________________________
SAVANNAH 4, GREENVILLE 2 (Box)
Hey, a win! Matires Aries and Ricky Knapp kept Yoan Moncada and the rest of the Drive bats in neutral, and the Sand Gnats cobbled together enough runs to eek out a win at Historic Grayson stadium.
- RF Wuilmer Becerra:1-4, 2B, R, K; .304/.345/.500 over the last month. That'll play.
- LF John Mora: 0-4, K
- DH Vicente Lupo: 1-3, RBI
- SS Luis Guillorme: 1-4, RBI, BB, K, SB; Guillorme has cooled off for a bit, but fortunately there is an old cliche about defense never going into a slump.
- 3B Eudor Garcia: 3-4, R
- C Tomas Nido:0-3, BB, K, E
- RHP Matires Arias: 4 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 7 K
