Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (4-4)__________________________________

LAS VEGAS 7, FRESNO 5 / 11 (BOX)

Las Vegas was cruising until Josh Smoker and Paul Seward had a meltdown in the 9th, allowing the Grizzlies to come back and tie the game 4-4. This story has a happy ending, as the 51s were  able to salvage things and pull out a win. In the 11th, Fresno pitcher James Hoyt lost his ability to throw strikes, and loaded up the bases via two unintentional walks and an intentional one. His replacement, Cesar Valdez, didn't have much better luck, walking the go-ahead run in and allowing one more for good measure.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (4-3) _____________________________

ERIE 9, BINGHAMTON 5 (BOX)

The B-Mets jumped out to an early lead, but were unable to hold onto it in their eventual 9-5 loss. Up 3-1, Tyler Pill surrendered a pair of runs in the 4th to tie the game. After a Dom Smith triple plated two runs in the top of the 5th, Pill promptly allowed two Erie runs in the bottom of the inning, tying things once more. Luis Mateo gave up the go-ahead run in the 6th, and Akeel Morris allowed three more in the 8th.

Advanced-A- St. Lucie Mets (7-3)______________________________

ST. LUCIE 3, BREVARD COUNTY 2 (BOX)

Rickey Knapp, who has looked strong going back to the second half of the 2015 season, turned in a solid performance last night. He was a bit hittable, but was able to keep the damage contained to just a pair of runs over five innings. Down by a run, Michael Katz tied things up in the 5th with a sac fly, and Tomas Nido drove in the winning run with a single. The bullpen held the lead, and St. Lucie won their FSL-best seventh victory.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (5-5)________________________________

GREENVILLE 5, COLUMBIA 3 (BOX)

Kevin Canelon and the Columbia bullpen were solid enough, but Daniel Gonzalez and the Drive bullpen were simply better. After tying the game up 2-2, Columbia allowed three more runs, two of which went unanswered, and that was that.
