Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (24-21)__________________________________


It wasn't a pretty game for the 51s, as they lost their third straight. In the bottom of the 12th, after Brandon Nimmo reached on a walk with two outs, he looked to have second base easily on defensive indifference. T.J. Rivera swung and missed at the pitch and Nimmo turned to go back to first. He was tagged out between first and second to end the game. Nimmo thought Rivera had fouled the ball off.

That wasn't the only mistake for the 51s in the ballgame. They failed to execute a hit-and-run in the fourth inning that turned into a caught stealing. That was a batter before Travis Taijeron hit a home run that would have tied the game if there hadn't been a caught stealing. Despite five walks from Rafael Montero, he surrendered just one run on three hits.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (18-26)_____________________________


The Flying Squirrels were all over the Mets and took the third game of the four-game set. The bullpen was rocked for eight runs on 11 hits over five innings after starter Rainy Lara only lasted four innings. Rehabbing Wilmer Flores went hitless in five at-bats. The Mets did have 11 hits but managed just two runs. They left 11 men on base and went 2-for-10 with RISP.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (24-21)______________________________


Despite just four hits from the Mets to the Stone Crabs' 11, St. Lucie pulled out the victory. They got the scoring started in the first when Champ Stuart walked, stole second, advanced to third on a sac bunt, and scored on a ground out. Charlotte tied the game in the seventh but St. Lucie answered right back without putting a ball in play. Patrick Biondi and Lednier Ricardo opened the inning with back-to-back walks. A passed ball allowed the runners to move to second and third. Charlotte brought in a new pitcher who threw a wild pitch and Biondi scored the go-ahead run. Josh Prevost made his best start of the season, spinning seven innings of one-run ball while striking out five.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (24-22)______________________________


The Fireflies completed the sweep and picked up their first ever series sweep at Spirit Communications Park. Columbia provided plenty of offense for starting pitcher Kevin Canelon, who was solid in his six innings of work, yielding three earned runs with six strikeouts. The Fireflies were down 3-2 but the bats came alive in the fifth inning. Patrick Mazeika highlighted the four-run inning with a bases-clearing double. Over his last eight games, Mazeika is batting a robust .444 (12-for-27) with seven RBIs. The pitching staff allowed just seven runs over the three-game sweep.
