Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (15-14)__________________________________


Gilmartin goes six

Smacks two hits when not on bump

I see you, Dilson

Mr. Gilmartin goes to Sacramento and pitches six superb innings while collecting two hits as well yesterday. The 51s slugged four home runs in a game that was a laugher after a four-run outburst in the fourth and fifth gave Vegas a 9-1 lead that they'd hold until the end.

Rafael Montero takes to the hill tonight at Raley Field as the 51s finish both their road trip and four-game series against the RiverCats.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (14-13)____________________________


Hey, RubberDucks sink

Not in bathtubs, but bullpens

Niuman's error helped

Sometimes, bad things happen to good people in Binghamton, in this case, it was the Seinfeld-ian named Niuman Romero, whose fielding error paved the way for three Akron unearned runs in the top of the ninth that turned a 5-5 tie into an insurmountable 9-5 deficit. Dominic Smith had two hits in an otherwise ugly affair that featured six unearned runs.

The B-Mets start a weeklong road trip tonight against the Reading Fightin' Phils with Tyler Pill taking the hill at FirstEnergy Stadium.

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

NO GAME (off day)

The S-Mets had a scheduled off day yesterday, and will begin a four-game split home/away set against the Jupiter Hammerheads at Tradition Field Monday night. If you're at the game, say hey to Casey Delgado, tonight's starter.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (16-14)________________________________

A power outage

Suspends Saturday's affair

So... doubleheader?



This was the continuation of the 5-0 mauling that began the night before but was suspended when the Fluor Field lights went out. Pay no heed, the bats persisted in the sun in Greenville last night, propelling our beloved glowing insects to a 13-3 win. Johnny Magliozzi pitched a pretty poor inning in relief but got the win due to starter Tyler Badamo failing to go four innings the previous night. Every batter for Columbia had a hit with the big blow coming via a Jeff Diehl grand slam.
Doubleheaders across all minors levels are seven innings per game, so the Drive scoring in bottom of the sixth to take a 5-4 lead they would not relinquish was very important. Also important was Kevin Kaczmarski having a nice game despite the less than optimal team result.

The fourth of the five-game series against the Drive takes place tonight, with Joe Shaw hopefully having lights to help guide him tonight.

Star of the Night
