Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (13-12)_________________________________


After Las Vegas blew out El Paso last night, El Paso returned the favor. The 51s' pitching was less than stellar. Rafael Montero drew the start and struggled through four innings, giving up seven earned runs on eight hits and walked three. Erik Goeddel didn't fare much better in the eighth inning, recording just one out and surrendering five earned runs. He didn't help himself when he made a fielding error on a bunt that loaded the bases. Goeddel walked in a run before surrendering back-to-back RBI singles, one of them to former Tampa Bay Ray first baseman James Loney. Josh Edgin worked a scoreless inning in relief, as his 30-day rehab window continues to shrink. Dilson Herrera added a hit after his two-home run day yesterday.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (13-10)____________________________


The Mets won their third straight game and have won eight of their last nine contests. The offense was quiet until the fifth inning when Kyle Johnson grounded into a run-producing fielder's choice to cut the Sea Dog's lead to 2-1. The Mets tied it on a wild pitch later in the inning. The Sea Dogs would go up 3-2 in the bottom half of the fifth but the Mets fought back and scored four unanswered runs, two in the sixth and two in the seventh before the game was called due to rain. Tyler Pill, making his second consecutive start against the Sea Dogs, was serviceable, throwing six innings of three-run ball. He stranded four runners, all in scoring position.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (14-12)______________________________


Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (14-12)______________________________


The Fireflies picked up the victory in the series opener, as David Thompson had a terrific day at the plate, going 4-for-5 with four RBIs. His biggest hit was a three-run home run in the first inning to give the Fireflies a lead they would not relinquish. Thompson wasn't the only Firefly with a four-hit day as Dash Winningham collected four hits with two RBIs. Lefty P.J. Conlon yielded two runs in the first inning but went on to fire five scoreless innings after the hiccup. He picked up his fourth win of the season and now has a 1.50 ERA over 30 innings.
