Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (47-44)__________________________________

IOWA 7, LAS VEGAS 3 (Box)

The 51s made it competitive early on, scoring the first run of the game in the top of the first and scoring another run in the top of the second to tie the game 2-2, but Jake Buchanan settled down and put up zeroes for the rest of the game. Sean Gilmartin gave up the lead in the third by allowing a run, and then had the floodgates open in the fifth when he allowed three more.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (41-49)____________________________

BINGHAMTON 3, HARTFORD 2 / 13 (Box)

The B-Mets and the Yard Goats traded the lead early on. Binghamton took the initial lead, scoring a run in the bottom of the first on a Victor Cruzado RBI single, but the recently demoted Rafael Montero immediately allowed a run to tie things. Hartford took the lead in the fourth, but Binghamton tied things in the sixth, when Cruzado once again drove a runner in. The score stayed tied 2-2 until the thirteenth inning, when Maikis De La Cruz lofted a liner into center field with the bases loaded to plate L.J. Mazzilli and win the game.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (47-41 / 12-9)_______________________________

ST. LUCIE 8, DAYTONA 1 (Box)

P.J. Conlon's out of nowhere season continued last night with another strong effort, good enough to earn his third win since being promoted to St. Lucie. The Irish southpaw was perfect through 5.2 innings, before a hit, and eventually, a run. All in all, he tossed six innings, allowing a run on two hits. The St. Lucie offense, meanwhile, had no problems in the offense department. The team combined for fifteen hits off of four Tortugas pitchers. All nine starters logged at least one hit, while Kevin Kaczmarski, Tomas Nido, and Luis Guillorme logged three apiece.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (41-51 / 5-17)________________________________

ROME 3, COLUMBIA 0 (Box)

Another game, another loss for the Colaflies. That's eight in a row now, folks. Columbia is not having a good inaugural season. Not much to say about this one. Chase Ingram wasn't terrible, nor was the bullpen, but the offense just couldn't manage anything off of Max Fried or the assorted relievers that followed.

Short-A -€” Brooklyn Cyclones (13-15)__________________________________

LOWELL 7, BROOKLYN 3 (Box)

Coming off of a four-game winning streak, Brooklyn has now dropped the first two games of their series against the Spinners, and are in danger of getting swept if they lose tonight. Merandy Gonzalez had an off night, allowing five runs on eight hits, while the Lowell trio of Darwinzon Hernandez, Daniel Zandona, and Algenis Martinez- a great law firm if I've ever heard one- combined to allow just three, all of which came in the third; Jake Zanon plated a run on a sac fly and Dan Rizzie plated two on a double down the third base line.

Rookie -€” Kingsport Mets (9-12)__________________________________

KINGSPORT 15, BRISTOL 3 (Box)

Kingsport knocked around the Bristol Pirates pitching staff to the tune of fifteen runs on fifteen hits. They did all their scoring in three innings- four runs in the second, six runs in the fourth, and five runs in the fifth. He didn't need to be, given the Kingsport lead, but Adonis Uceta pitched a good game as well, allowing a run on three hits over six innings of work.

Rookie -€” GCL Mets (10-7)__________________________________

GCL NATIONALS 5, GCL METS 2 (Box)
