Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (22-17)__________________________________


Fun fact: Colorado Springs' stadium is at the highest elevation in all of professional baseball. The 51s scored six runs in the first against Taylor Jungmann, with Ty Kelly and Travis Taijeron each hitting home runs; however, the Sky Sox tied the game by the seventh inning. Thankfully, TJ Rivera played hero with an RBI single in the eighth that put Vegas on top for good, and Chasen Bradford and Paul Sewald made it stand for the victory.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (17-21)____________________________


The B-Mets defeated the Curve 5-4 last night, as the B-Mets three-run seventh inning erased a 3-2 deficit and gave them the lead for good. Tyler Pill went six innings, getting a no-decision despite his solid outing. In true minor league rally fashion, the B-Mets broke a 3-3 tie without even swinging the bat: a bases-loaded wild pitch to Matt Oberste and a throwing error on the same play plated two runs. Beck Wheeler got the save while striking out the side, but it was a very tenuous ninth inning around the strikeouts.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (21-18)______________________________


The Mets and Threshers had last night's game cancelled at Tradition Field, and will not make the game up as the two teams do not play again in the first half. Tonight, our FSL heroes head to Jackie Robinson Ballpark to begin a 4-game series against the Daytona Tortugas. Chris Flexen is the scheduled starter.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (20-20)______________________________


In a game that featured 24 strikeouts combined by both teams, the Fireflies accrued 14 of them and fell to the RiverDogs 1-0 last night at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park. Kevin Canelon and Christian Montgomery each pitched exceedingly well, but were no match for Charleston starter Nestor Cortes. Jose Garcia paced the bats with two hits.
