Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (26-22)__________________________________


I'm a fan of Gabriel Ynoa. Maybe I saw too many of his starts in Brooklyn, maybe I let Jeff get to me, but I've always been a fan. That said, I feel like he should not be having the success he is having in the Pacific Coast League. I am happy for it, but it is a bit puzzling, to say the least. Ynoa pitched a decent game, but the Las Vegas bullpen did not. Both Erik Goeddel and Jeff Walters allowed four earned runs, Stolmy Pimentel allowed three, and Josh Smoker allowed one. The PCL being what it is, the 51s scored 17 runs off of the Redbirds pitching staff, so thankfully, none of those bullpen runs were relevant.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (19-28)____________________________


Hopefully, this isn't the start of a new Binghamton losing streak. Having just snapped a three-game losing streak, the B-Mets fell to the Thunder 6-3, in a score reversal from Friday's game. Pedro Lopez was ejected in the fifth inning when Lane Adams scored on a Billy Fleming groundball to third. Third baseman L.J. Mazzilli caught the grounder and tossed it to catcher Xorge Carillo, who appeared to tag Adams, who dove out of the way, evaded the tag, and scored. Lopez argued that he left the baseline, literally acting out what he believed happened, but home plate umpire Richard Riley ruled that he did not, and Lopez' passion play was to no avail.

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


St. Lucie fell to 0-5 at McKechnie Field- the home of the Marauders- with last night's loss. Rickey Knapp was so-so, pitching seven innings and striking out seven batters, but he allowed four runs on eight hits. Four runs generally isn't an insurmountable lead, but the St. Lucie offense just wasn't up to the task. Outside of the two runs they scored in the top of the first, the team was held scoreless. They had a few chances, putting multiple men on base in the fifth and in the eighth, but both times, they failed to drive in the lead runner.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (25-24)________________________________
