Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (49-38)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 10, SALT LAKE 5 (Box)

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (42-42)_____________________________________

NEW BRITAIN 3, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

Coming off his best start this season, Gabriel Ynoa turned in yet another good outing. The right-hander tossed eight solid innings, allowing three runs on seven hits. He needed just 78 pitches to get through those eight innings. The Binghamton offense, unfortunately, struggled against Rock Cats pitching tonight, and was able to only score two runs, wasting Ynoa's quality performance. In the first, back-to-back doubles by Gavin Cecchini and L.J. Mazzilli plated Binghamton's first run, and a few batters later, a Josh Rodriguez single plated the other, but those would be the only runs they'd score.

Getting back to Ynoa for a moment, this is his fifth straight start pitching at least 6.2 innings, and his third in a row pitching at least eight. In the six starts he's logged in roughly a month, the right-hander has lowered his ERA by almost two entire runs.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (41-43 /6-8)_____________________________________

ST. LUCIE 3, CHARLOTTE 2 (Box)

Jairo Perez hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth to score Jeff McNeil, breaking St. Lucie's four-game losing streak. The Stone Crabs scored the first run of the game in the top of the first off of Casey Meisner, but Dominic Smith put St. Lucie back on top in the bottom of inning thanks to a two-run home run over the left field wall, his third home run of the year. Charlotte tied things back up in the fourth, and the game remained a stalemate for the next few innings. Jeff McNeil doubled to start the ninth, and the rest was fate.

Low-A - Savannah Sand Gnats (43-40 / 4-9)__________________________________

LEXINGTON 2, SAVANNAH 1 (Box)

Lexington scored a run in the first inning, and for most of the ballgame, that lead held. Finally, in the seventh inning, the Sand Gnats got on the board. Back-to-back singles by John Mora and Jean Rodriguez and a Tomas Nido put runners in scoring position for Vicente Lupo. The outfielder grounded out, but Mora scored the tying run. In the ninth, after Jimmy Duff struck out his first two batters, he issued a walk and a single. The next batter, Luis Valenzuela, singled into left to score the lead runner, giving the Legend a walk-off victory.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (13-5)_______________________________________

BROOKLYN 5, HUDSON VALLEY 3 (Box)

Gaby Almonte and the rest of the Cyclones bullpen were solid in Brooklyn's 5-3 win over the Renegades, the team's eighth win in their last ten games. David Thompson drove in Tucker Tharp in the first to give the Cyclones a lead they never lost. In the fourth, the team scored three more, and in the fifth, scored one more. The Renegades scored an unearned run in the bottom of the fourth to get on the board, and plated two more in the fifth, but were shut down by Craig Missigman in the seventh, P.J. Conlon in the eighth, and Alex Palsha in the ninth.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (9-7)__________________________

KINGSPORT 8, ELIZABETHTON 2 (Box)

Harol Gonzalez is quickly separating himself from the pack and showing himself to be the "ace" of the Kingsport staff, logging seven quality innings to win his first game of 2015. The K-Mets took the lead in the third after Raphael Ramirez tripled and scored on a wild pitch. The Twins scored two of their own in the sixth, but their lead was short lived, as Kingsport plated three more runs in the bottom of the inning to take a 4-2 lead. Kingsport gave Elizabethton's the death knell in the eighth, scoring four insurance runs thanks to RBI hits by Leon Canelon, Luis Carpio, and Dash Winningham.
