Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (6-9)__________________________________

ALBURQURQUE 5, LAS VEGAS 4 (Box)

Las Vegas' sluggish start to the season continues. The team jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, but the Isotopes jumped ahead in the sixth thanks to a costly Brandon Nimmo fielding error. The 51s tied it back up in the bottom of the seventh, but Josh Smoker quickly gave the lead up. Down by a run, Las Vegas had opportunities to tie things up once again, putting a man in scoring position in both the eighth and ninth innings, but failed to capitalize both times.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (5-9)____________________________

ERIE 7, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

That's six losses in a row for the B-Mets now. They tallied ten hits on the night, but were only able to string enough together to plate two runs. Erie had no such problems, tagging starter Rainy Lara for six runs, and Luis Mateo for an additional one.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (10-7)_______________________________

BRADENTON 9, ST. LUCIE 4 (Box)

St. Lucie trailed for most of the game, but with one swing, Amed Rosario put the team within reach. Down 6-1 in the eighth, he clubbed a Junior Lopez offering over the left center wall for a three-run homer, his second of the year. With the score a much closer 6-4, the bullpen was just unable to keep the Marauders from scoring and give the offense a chance to win the game. With the bases loaded thanks to a hit batsman, unintentional walk, and intentional walk, Jimmy Duff gave up a bases-clearing triple to Chase Simpson, effectivley ending the game right there. Deflated, the St. Lucie bats went weakly into the Florida evening.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (10-7)________________________________

COLUMBIA 7, GREENVILLE 3 (Box)

Trailing for most of the ballgame, Columbia unloaded on Drive reliever Kuehl McEachern for five runs in the ninth inning to win their fourth game in a row. He hit Milton Ramos to start the inning, and things went further downhill for him from there. Vinny Siena drove him in, tying the game, and Tucker Tharp drove in the go-ahead run. Jeff Diehl added a few insurance runs with his second home run in as many nights.
