Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (16-14)__________________________________

LAS VEGAS 1, SACRAMENTO 0 (Box)

Rafael was good

Too many syllables for

5-7-5 format

Las Vegas pitching was nothing short of superb last night as Rafael Montero and five relievers combined to shut out the Sacramento RiverCats last night at Raley Field. A Matt Reynolds RBI double was all the 51s needed against Chris Heston—yes, that Chris Heston—and Ty Kelly scored said run while also going 4-for-4 at the plate.

The 51s return to Cashman Field tonight against the El Paso Chihuahuas with Seth Lugo hoping to make it a happy return to form.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (14-14)____________________________

READING 5, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

Tyler Pill with the

El Sid-esque pitching line but

Not a victory

Tyler Pill giveth and Tyler Pill taketh away, despite 12 strikeouts in 7.1 innings last night, a home run allowed by the righty in the bottom of the eighth inning ultimately gave the Fightin' Phils the 5-3 win. Despite also playing offensive star with a two-run single in a three-run fifth, Pill and the B-Mets could not build upon the lead against the Reading bullpen, dropping the team to .500.

The series continues at 11:30 AM today at First Energy Stadium with the Bingo starter TBD as of now.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (17-13)_______________________________
The unsafe lead in

Baseball is not one run

But leading Lucie

ST. LUCIE 14, JUPITER 6 (Box)

So the S-Mets were actually down 5-0 in the third inning of this affair, but then proceeded to stage an all-out offensive barrage against the Hammerheads last night at Tradition Field. Chris Flexen got the start, and was hit early before settling down and throwing 6 didn't-need-to-be-solid-but-thank-you-for-saving-the-bullpen innings. Wuilmer Becerra continues to smack the ball all over the FSL, adding two more hits to increase his season splits to .424/.468/.494.

Josh Prevost is the probable this morning (a 10:30 start!) as the Mets conclude the home portion of the series against Jupiter.
Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (17-14)________________________________

Like Fluor Field lights

These haikus run out of steam

Not Columbia

COLUMBIA 6, GREENVILLE 4 (Box)

Chase Ingram was decent in getting the win last night against the Drive as the Fireflies hung on to win 6-4. A 5-0 lead was nearly for naught as Ingram allowed four back, but the combination of Tyler Bashlor—see below for his interesting line—and Alex Paisha helped keep the Drive scoreless for the final four innings to clinch the victory. Five doubles, including two for Milton Ramos, were offensive catalysts for Columbia.

The five-game series concludes this afternoon at Fluor Field.

Star of the Night

Rafael Montero
