Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (39-33)________________________________

LAS VEGAS 12, RENO 10 (Box)

Las Vegas and Reno combined for 22 runs 24 hits, so really, it was just another one of your typical Pacific Coast League games. The 51s offense was clicking on all cylinders, led by Dilson Herrera and Brandon Nimmo, who combined to knock in nine runs. Nimmo is now 6 for his last 11 over his past four games. The 51s had a 5-1 lead until Reno scored five times to take a 6-5 lead in the bottom of the sixth. Las Vegas then put up a five spot of their own in the eighth inning, highlighted by a Herrera grand slam. It was his 11th home run of the year. The pitching staff did not fare too well in this one with starter Duane Below proving to be ineffective in his 5.1 innings of work. Jeff Walters and Josh Edgin did little to limit the damage. However, Las Vegas held on for their fifth straight win.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (28-40)____________________________


ALTOONA 6, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

While Las Vegas is riding a five game winning streak, Binghamton is riding a five game losing streak. The Mets had plenty of opportunities for more offense but went an ugly 4-for-17 with runners in scoring position and stranded 13 base runners. Rainy Lara was charged with six earned runs on ten hits over five innings. Dom Smith recorded a hit and walked twice. It hasn't been easy for Binghamton.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (35-32)_____________________________

PALM BEACH 3, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

In the last game of the first half of the season, the Mets five game winning streak was snapped. St. Lucie is in second place in the South Division at the break. The Mets lone run came when Kevin Taylor grounded into a double play with the bases loaded to score Champ Stuart. Ricky Knapp was decent for six innings, yielding three runs while striking out five.
Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (36-34)______________________________

DID NOT PLAY TODAY

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (2-4)_________________________________

CONNECTICUT 7, BROOKLYN 5 (Box)

The Cyclones were losing 7-2 after six innings but scored three runs in the ninth to pull a little closer and make the final score a little more respectable. Catcher Jacob Zanon highlighted the three run ninth with a two-run home run, his first of the season. The Cyclones tried to emulate their major league affiliate and went 1-for-12 with runners in scoring position. The Tigers made four errors in the ballgame but did those miscues did not come back to haunt them. Cyclones Starter Gabriel Llanes did not have a pretty outing, allowing six runs on ten hits in five innings of work.
