Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (28-25)_______________________________________

LAS VEGAS 9, RENO 8 F/10 (Box)

Vegas was trailing 7-3 going into the top of the ninth last night against the Aces; they proceeded to score 5 runs in their half of the inning to take an 8-7 lead. Despite the heroics, Reno had a comeback of their own up their sleeve as Josh Smoker served up a game-tying home run, improbably prompting this affair to extra innings. Roger Bernadina then hit a home run of his own in the 10th as Smoker redeemed himself with a clean inning to seal it for the 51s.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (21-31)_____________________________________

ERIE 6, BINGHAMTON 5 (Box)

I mean, this was a 5-3 lead heading into the bottom of the 9th with Akeel Morris on the mound. Erie won this with a game-winning three-run double with two outs after Alberto Baldonado inherited three of Morris's runners. The B-Mets took a 4-0 lead in the second inning with LJ Mazzilli's three-run home run providing the bulk of the offense, and starter Mickey Jannis did throw 6.2 effective innings. To end this recap on a positive note, Philip Evans paced the offense with a 3-for-4 night.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (26-27)_____________________________________

GAME 1

ST. LUCIE 8, FT. MYERS 0 F/7 (Box)

Chris Flexen threw a complete-game one-hitter because he likes forcing me to use hyphens in my recaps, but also because he's pretty good at baseball. The St. Lucie Mets mauled Miracle pitching for 13 hits and 5 walks in just seven innings of play as every St. Lucie started reached base at least once, and eight of the nine had a hit.

GAME 2

FT. MYERS 4, ST. LUCIE 3 F/7 (Box)

The Miracle claimed the second game of the doubleheader with a 4-3 walk-off victory. Despite putting forth a decidedly different lineup than that of the first game, St. Lucie put together a 3-1 lead in the fifth inning but starter Corey Oswalt surrendered it without recording an out in the bottom of the inning. Kevin Taylor continues to rake at the FSL level, piggybacking a solid first game performance with a home run in the second. The former 39th round pick of the Dodgers who spent the past two seasons in the Frontier League and American Association respectively, now has a .310/.414/.488 line in 150 PA at St. Lucie.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (28-26)__________________________________

HAGERSTOWN 6, COLUMBIA 3 (Box)

Colaflies starter Joe Shaw was hit early and often in this one, putting our Sally League heroes in a 5-0 second inning hole from which they would not recover. Columbia's 1-3 hitters combined for an 0-for-13 night with three strikeouts.
