*All results from games played on Saturday, May 21, 2016

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (23-18)__________________________________


Sky Sox starter Hiram Burgos was solid in his five innings of work, not surrendering a run. Once the 51s got to the Sky Sox bullpen, it was a different story. David Goforth surrendered three runs in his one-plus innings of work, and Damien Magnifico gave up the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (17-23)____________________________


Binghamton was only able to muster two runs, and lost as a result. Both runs came early, with Steven Sabol doing all of the work. The outfielder hit a two-out double in the second to score Jared King, and a two-out single in the fourth to score Maikis De La Cruz. Rob Gsellman was not able to keep that lead, allowing the RubberDucks to get on the board in the fourth, and then take the lead in the fifth. Trying to overcome their deficit, the B-Mets bats stalled against Akron's bullpen, managing only three singles against it in four innings.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (21-20)_______________________________


St. Lucie lost their third game in a row, and their second to the Daytona Tortugas, surrendering the series to them. Thanks to a Daytona error and a Michael Katz line drive, St. Lucie took an early lead, but Chris Flexen was unable to hold it, giving up a run in the third to tie things, a run in the fourth to give the Tortugas the lead, and a run in the fifth to give them the lead for a second time after St. Lucie tied things in the top of the inning. Both teams tacked on an extra run late, but St. Lucie was not able to overcome.

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


Columbia came out of the box with bats swinging, driving in runs all night. Immediatley, they plated two innings, and scored another two in the third, fourth, and sixth. The team totaled fifteen hits and drew three walks. Joe Shaw, who took the mound for the Fireflies, pitched the best game of his young career. Shaw, who was drafted in the 12th round from Dallas Baptist, struck out in seven innings en route to his third win of the season.
