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


Gabriel Ynoa continues to thrive in the PCL, against all odds. The right-hander tossed seven innings of one run ball, the lone blemish on his line coming in the bottom of the second thanks to a Grant Green home run. In the top of the third, the 51s got that run back on a Dilson Herrera RBI single, and took the lead on a TJ Rivera sac fly. Josh Smoker and Josh Edgin finished out the game, bringing Las Vegas back to the .500 mark.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (14-12)____________________________

AKRON 2, BINGHAMTON 1 / 11 (Box)

Binghamton scored an early run on a second inning home run off the bat of Victor Cruzado, but were blanked over the nine innings, two of which bled into extras. Both starters were solid but neither lasted too long, with RubberDuck starter Adam Plutko lasting only four innings and B-Mets started Rob Gsellman tossing six innings. It turned into a battle of bullpens, and the Akron bullpen unfortunatley outlasted the B-Mets'. Luis Mateo, Beck Wheeler, and Akeel Morris all turned in solid efforts, but with his very first pitch, Mike Hepple gave up a solo home run to Nellie Rodriguez, the first homer a Binghamton reliever has allowed since April 25th. Binghamton didn't go down meekly, putting men on first and second in the bottom of the inning, but were unable to push those men across the plate before Ben Heller recorded three outs.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (16-13)_______________________________


St. Lucie picked up a game on the division leading Miracle, spanking them to the tune of fifteen runs on sixteen hits. They scored four runs in the first, six runs in the third, and five in the fifth. Starter Scarlyn Reyes wasn't exactly spectacular himself, giving up five runs over seven innings, but he gave the bullpen some time to rest, with only two relievers being summoned to close out the game.

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


Due to a technical issue with the left field lights at Fluor Field, yesterday's game between the Fireflies and the Greenville Grasshoppers was suspended in the bottom of the fifth, and will be resumed this afternoon. At the time of the suspension, Columbia winning 5-0 thanks to a wild pitch that Vinny Siena scored on and a Jeff Diehl grand slam, his team-leading fourth homer of the season and the first big salami in Columbia Fireflies history.
