Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (22-18)__________________________________


The 51s jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the top of the first, but nothing is ever for sure in the PCL. The Sky Sox tied the game up with two runs in the bottom of the first and one apiece in the second and third, and then jumped out to a commanding lead themselves in the bottom of the fourth when they scored seven runs. Suffice to say, Stolmy Pimentel did not have his best stuff last night. They tacked on another three off of Dario Alvarez, giving them a ten run advantage over Las Vegas. The 51s scored two runs in the top of the ninth, not that those runs made much of a difference.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (17-22)____________________________


The B-Mets scored seven runs in the seventh inning innwhat should have been a great comeback story, but were somehow unable to hold the lead and lost the ballgame. Down by six runs, Binghamton sent elevent men to the plate, scoring seven runs, taking the lead. In the bottom of the seventh, Mike Hepple allowed Akron to tie the game, and Luis Mateo alloed the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth. The B-Mets almost tied things in the ninth, putting men on base with less than two outs, but the game ended when Matt Oberste popped out to catcher Jeremy Lucas in front of the B-Mets dugout, who popped back up after the catch and fired down to third to nab LJ Mazzilli, who was attempting to tag up.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (21-19)_______________________________


Shutouts are the worst when you lose them, but I can respect 1-0 shutouts. When both pitchers are good, those are some of the most exciting baseball games possibile. In this case, both Josh Prevost and Tortuga starter Tyler Mahle were merely okay, though Mahle did strike out an impressive seven. The lone run of the game came in the bottom of the third, when Blake Trahan hit a line drive into left to score Jonathan Reynoso.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (20-21)________________________________


The ColaFlies weren't bad, but the RiverDogs were just better. The two Tylers combined to throw eight respectable innings that, but Simon De La Rosa and Cody Carroll were just slightly better- especially Carroll, who struck out seven in four innings of relief work.
