Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (6-6)__________________________________


For the first five games of the 51s current road trip, they have struggled picking up timely hits. That wasn't the case last night, as the team went 6-for-15 with runners in scoring position on their way to a 9-3 win over the Sacramento River Cats. Most of the damage came in the fifth inning when the 51s scored four times with a Matt Reynolds solo home run, a Dilson Herrera double and a two-run double off the bat of catcher Rene Rivera. In his first start of the season, left-hander Duane Below was serviceable, tossing six innings of three-run ball while scattering seven hits and punching out five batters.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (5-6)____________________________


The Akron RubberDucks completed the sweep of the B-Mets with a win in ten innings. Robert Gsellman, who has added a slider to his arsenal this season, befuddled the RubberDucks' hitters, retiring 16 consecutive batters from the second inning to the fifth inning, needing only 41 pitches.  Akron finally got to Gsellman in the sixth inning when rehabbing Cleveland Indians outfielder Michael Brantley got to him for an RBI double. Otherwise, Gsellman pitched 6.1 innings of one-run ball, surrendering just three hits and racking up seven strikeouts. He now has a 1.45 ERA on the young season. The B-Mets' bats were quiet in this one with only four hits and had just 10 hits in the three-game series sweep.
Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (8-6)_______________________________


The Mets were shutout for the third time at home this season and fell to Charlotte for the second straight game. The Stone Crabs got all four of their runs in the third inning off B-Mets' starter Chris Flexen after three consecutive bases loaded run-scoring singles. Second baseman Luis Guillorme had a chance to get the Mets back in the game with a bases loaded opportunity in the bottom half of the third but he grounded into a inning-ending double play. Wuilmer Becerra added a hit to his ledger and now has a modest four-game hitting streak.
Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (7-7)________________________________


After Charleston shutout Columbia 7-0 on Tuesday, the Fireflies returned the favor and took the rubber match of the three-game series. Every Firefly reached base safely, providing plenty of offensive support for the pitching staff with three runs in the first inning. Firefly starter Pat Conlon picked up his second win of the season with six scoreless innings and a career-high six strikeouts. Conlon has yielding just two runs in his 16.2 innings of work this season through three starts.
