Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (40-33)________________________________

LAS VEGAS 8, RENO 6 (Box).

The 51s had an 8-0 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh, and in true PCL fashion, still needed a save with the game-tying run on base in the bottom of the ninth. Gabriel Ynoa pitched 6.2 strong innings, while Travis Taijeron and Nevin Ashley each hit two-run home runs to pace the offense. However, not all was perfect in this game: Seth Lugo pitched a meltdown inning of relief and Gavin Cecchini committed his 21st error of the season.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (28-42)____________________________


Bingo continues their losing ways after dropping a 9-6 affair to the Altoona Curve, and prolonging the current losing streak to 10 games. A poorlyplayed game all around, Mets starter Josh Zeid threw 107 pitches over five laborious innings while two Binghamton errors led to two unearned runs last night. Dominic Smith went 0-for-4, and in the process, lowered his splits against left handed pitching to .190/.294/.190 in 58 season at-bats.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (35-33 / 0-1)_____________________________


Andrew Church threw a 91-pitch complete game... and lost, as St. Lucie dropped their first game of the second half to the Palm Beach Cardinals last night, 3-2. Tucker Tharp provided the offense with a single in the fourth that plated two and gave the Mets a brief 2-1 lead.
Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (37-34 / 0-1)______________________________


Much like their Florida State League brethren, the Fireflies were defeated in the first second-half game of their season by the Augusta GreenJackets, 6-3. Joe Shaw pitched five mediocre innings, while Joe Tuschak slugged his seventh home run of the season.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (2-5)_________________________________


Again, this game was an example of poor luck throughout the system last night. Two Cyclones pitchers, Harol Gonzalez and Taylor Henry, combined to hold the Tigers to two hits over eight innings but couldn't propel Brooklyn to a win last night. After scoring a run without getting a hit in the sixth (and still being no-hit), the Tigers put together two singles that culminated in two runs in the seventh. Brooklyn attempted a comeback in the eighth via Jay Jabs's ground out and Brandon Brosher's sacrifice fly, but went down meekly in the ninth to ensure the loss.

R - Kingsport Mets (0-1)______________________________________


Thomas Szapucki pitched a jewel, with a Game Score of 85 and 13 strikeouts over 6.2 innings, but Gregorix Estevez managed to undo all of Mr. Szapucki's efforts in a third of an inning as the Kingsport Mets lost their season opener last night to the Elizabethton Twins, 4-3. Kingsport only had three hits but were efficient with them, as all three went for extra bases and scored runs.
