Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (53-53)__________________________________

FRESNO 8, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)

The 51s took the lead early on a Gavin Cecchini single that scored T.J. Rivera, but Darin Gorski fell apart in the bottom of the third, allowing seven runs to score. The 51s bullpen the Grizzlies scoreless save a seventh inning run, but the Las Vegas offense was held off the board by starter Brady Rodgers and reliever Kevin Chapman. There was a little controversy in that ill-fated third, when a foul ball was called fair, but ultimately those additional runs would not mean much, as the Las Vegas bats were silent.

Double-A - Binghamton Mets (48-56)____________________________

PORTLAND 11, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

Binghamton allowed eleven runs on eighteen hits, the most of any opponent this season. Tyler Herron wasn’t fooling anyone, allowing twelve of those hits over the game’s first four innings. The B-Mets thankfully got on the board, but the three runs they scored- two in the sixth and one in the eighth- barely made a dent in the Sea Dogs’ lead.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (54-47 / 19-15)_______________________________

ST. LUCIE 16, LAKELAND 3 (Box)

Now that’s more like it. Good pitching and good hitting wins ballgames. On the pitching side, Casey Delgado pitched seven-plus strong innings (and Domingo Tapia got an assist at the end), and on the hitting side, well, pretty much everyone made a contribution. Every hitter logged at least one hit except David Thompson and John Mora, but both got on base with a walk- Thompson also was hit by a pitch. St. Lucie plated seven runs before the Lakeland starter Jeff Thompson even recorded an out, and was removed without ever recording an out.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (47-56 / 11-22)________________________________

ASHEVILLE 5, COLUMBIA 2 / 10 (Box)

Andrew Church is back at it. Check off another one in the good start column. He didn’t get the win, but he pitched well enough to deserve one. He would have been charged with a loss, had the Colaflies not tied the game 2-2 in the bottom of the ninth, thanks to a super clutch Patrick Mazeika home run. Only a few minutes later, all of that elation would completely disappear from Spirit Communications Park when Johnny Magliozzi allowed three runs to score in the top of the tenth.

Short-A – Brooklyn Cyclones (21-19)__________________________________

BROOKLYN 8, VERMONT 5 (Box)

Brooklyn’s mid-season surge continues. The team jumped out in front early and continued putting on pressure all evening. Merandy Gonzalez didn’t have his best stuff, allowing four runs on six hits and six walks, but he got the job done. The bullpen held, with the exception of Joseph Zanghi giving up a run, and the Cyclones won their sixth in a row.

Rookie – Kingsport Mets (14-22)__________________________________

Kingsport and Johnson City split a double-header making up a rain-postponed game back from July 8. In Game One, Sixto Torres pitched well enough- though he did allow eleven hits in five plus innings- but found himself tagged with the loss when the offense failed to score more than two runs. In Game Two, Max Wotell found himself in a more favorable position, with the offense providing him six runs.
