LAS VEGAS 7, TACOMA 3 (Box)

The 51s defeated the Rainiers last night 7-3 with Darin Gorski pitching seven strong innings. Trailing 1-0 after the first inning, Vegas was aided by three home runs with the dearly-demoted Michael Conforto and Kevin Plawecki slugging one apiece.

Rafael Montero is the probable starter tonight as the 51s hope to continue their winning ways at Cheney Stadium.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (32-43)_____________________________________

NEW HAMPSHIRE 4, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

The B-Mets offense was limited to five hits last night, falling to the FisherCats 4-2. Shortstop of the past Jose Reyes continued his struggles since signing with the Mets, going 0-for-4 with a strikeout, while shortstop of the future Amed Rosario continues to rake against Double-A pitching. In his eight games since his promotion from St. Lucie, he's hitting .414/.469/.621 with 3 walks and 7 strikeouts in 29 at-bats.

Bingo will have a doubleheader against the FisherCats tonight starting at 5:35 PM. Robert Gsellman is the probable starter for Game 2.

ST. LUCIE 3, CHARLOTTE 3 (SUSPENDED)

The Mets play the Stone Crabs one more time in Port Charlotte in late August.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (38-40 / 1-7)__________________________________

WEST VIRGINIA 4, COLUMBIA 2 (Box)

The Colaflies continued their dismal second half play, dropping a 4-2 decision to the West Virginia Power last night.

The Cyclones were leading 3-1 going to the bottom of the fifth inning before the Spikes scored nine unanswered runs to turn this affair into a laugher. Starter Joel Huertas allowed eight runs on twelve hits 5.1 innings pitched, while his relief Nabil Crismatt didn't fare much better, allowing two more runs in his 2.2 innings of work. State College catcher Ryan McCarvel had a whale of a game, hitting for the cycle and driving in 5 runs. Colby Woodmansee continues his hitting ways with two hits and now has a line of .405/.450/.432 for the season.

The Cyclones return to Coney Island to face the Connecticut Tigers tonight, the starter is TBD.
