Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (29-26)__________________________________


Down 7-3 in the bottom of the ninth, the 51s scored four in the ninth off of Jonothan Aro, who had previously given up only a single run over the last month. Eric Campbell and Travis Taijeron led off the inning with back-to-back doubles before Marc Krauss made the first out of the inning, a long fly ball that Mike Baxter made an excellent catch in foul territory to snag. Gavin Cecchini stepped up to the plate and lined a groundball up the middle, allowing Taijeron to score, making it a 7-6 game. Kyle Johnson came up to bat next and came within inches of sending everyone home happy with a walk-off homer, but instead had to settle with a game-tying double off the top of the left field wall. Dilson Herrera didn't waste any time, lining one into right to book the game in the books.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (22-32)____________________________


Rainy Lara pitched the best game of his season to date, blanking Altoona over seven innings, allowing just three hits. Things stayed tied until the fifth, when the B-Mets got on the board on back-to-back extra base hits by Jared King and L.J. Mazzilli. Tim Peterson held down the eighth, and after Xorge Carillo added an insurance run in the ninth, Akeel Morris held down the bottom of the inning, earning his fourth save.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (26-29)_______________________________


Another loss to the worst-in-the-FSL Manatees. At this rate, St. Lucie is going to find themselves with that unfortunate distinction. St. Lucie scored four runs in the first, but those were the only runs they were able to plate. Michael Katz drove in a run on a line drive to center, and 2016 FSL All-Star Tomas Nido followed that with a three run blast, his second of the year. Things went smoothly for a little bit, but Scarlyn Reyes allowed six runs in the fourth, effectivley knocking St. Lucie out of the game.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (28-28)________________________________


The ColaFlies lost another one to Hagerstown, this time in eleven innings instead of nine. The Suns got on the board in the fifth, but David Thompson tied things up in the seventh with a solo home run, his fourth of the year. The score stayed tied, and into extra innings the game went...and P.J. Conlon went along with it. The Irish southpaw threw all nine regulation innings and tossed an extra frame just because, needing only 98 pitches in total to do so. Victor Robles doubled off of Alex Palsha to start the twelveth inning. Two wild pitches allowed him to move to third and eventually score, which broke the tie. In the bottom of the inning, Columbia got a man into scoring position, but was unable to drive him in.
