Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (13-14)__________________________________


Sacramento started Chris Stratton was dominant, retiring nine of the first ten batters he faced, with that lone base runner reaching on an error. He tossed seven innings, allowing one run on three hits with a walk and nine strikeouts, the most for any River Cat pitcher since Clayton Blackburn struck out nine on August 31, 2015. The lone run that he gave up came in the sixth, when Marc Krauss sent a solo shot over the right field fence to start the inning. Duane Below, meanwhile, matched him zero for zero until the fifth, when the wheels fell apart. With two men on, Ryan Lollis tripled to drive both men in. Miguel Olivo followed with an RBI single, and Jarrett Parker followed that with a two-run homer. Gavin Cecchini doubled in two runs in the ninth to give the 51s a little life, but reliever Phil McCormic shut the door without further issues when he was brought in to relieve Duke Welker.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (14-11)____________________________


Binghamton and the RubberDucks went back and forth all evening, and when all was said and done after a long hour-and-a-half rain delay, the B-Mets just happened to be winning when the game was called due to rain.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (15-13)_______________________________


The Miracle just barely edged out St. Lucie, extending their lead in the Florida State League South. With the score tied 1-1 in the seventh, Kevin Garcia doubled on a play that was initially caught by a diving Champ Stuart but dropped, and came around to score a few batters later. St. Lucie almost came back, as Amed Rosario led off the ninth with a single and stole second to put himself in scoring position, but reliever Yorman Landa struck out Kevin Taylor, Wuilmer Becerra, and Michael Katz to end the game. Ricky Knapp, who started for St. Lucie, struggled with his command early, walking four batters and allowing a run in the first 2.1 innings, but he settled down to throw six innings. Felix Jorge, the Miracle starter, also had a period of struggle, but recovered to throw seven strong innings.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (15-12)________________________________



Thomas McIlraith preserved the bullpen for game two, but seemingly ran out of gas in the bottom of the sixth, allowing three runs on three singles, an Enmanuel Zabala throwing error, and two wild pitches. David Thompson drove in Vinny Siena- his 32nd RBI of the season, putting him at eigthth most in the world in 2016- to put the ColaFlies ahead in the first, but the Grasshoppers put up a two spot in the bottom of the inning. In the second, Ivan Wilson scored a Jose Reyes run, drawing a walk, stealing second, taking third on a wild pitch, and scoring on a sac fly. The score would stay tied 2-2 until that fateful sixth.



This game was a make-up of the May 5th postponement. Kevin Canelon was on his game, tossing five innings of shutout ball. The Venezuelan lefty allowed one hit, walked a batter, and struck out seven. Columbia got on the board in the third, when Vicente Lupo scored on a fielding error- giving David Thompson his 33rd RBI, tying him for seventh most in the world- and added an insurance run on a Dash Winningham sac fly. Alex Palsha relieved Canelon and was solid, though he allowed a run in the sixth.
