Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (57-61)

Las Vegas was swept last night in a doubleheader against the Albuquerque Isotopes.

Game one was a 7-0 whitewashing as Isotope starter Eddie Butler threw a complete game, holding the 51s to just three singles in seven innings. In contrast, Duane Below struggled in his 4.2 innings of work, allowing seven runs (five earned) on eleven hits.

The second game was a more competitive affair as Travis Taijeron’s seventeenth home run of the season tied the game at three in the top of the sixth inning. However, a rehabbing Jim Henderson surrendered the lead right back in the bottom of the inning, and Las Vegas was unable to counter in the top of the seventh. Tyler Pill pitched five decent Pacific Coast League innings, and also hit a double to help his cause.

GAME ONE: ALBUQUERQUE 7, LAS VEGAS 0 F/7 (Box)

GAME TWO: ALBUQUERQUE 4, LAS VEGAS 3 F/7 (Box)

Double-A: Binghamton Mets (53-61)

READING 8, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

For all those unaware, the Phillies’ Double-A team has been a buzzsaw to the Eastern League this season. They lead the league with an .803 OPS (the second-best team is at .734), 155 home runs (second-best has 105), and have the best record in all of professional baseball with a 77-38 record after waxing the B-Mets 8-2 last night in Binghamton.

Tyler Herron kept this one close until the fifth inning, when the Fightin’ Phils tagged him for five runs to turn a tied game in into a 6-1 deficit. Bingo did have their chances to make this game competitive, but as is the theme went 1-for-13 with RISP and left 11 men on base. The offense also struck out 14 times on the night, with four of them coming from uber-prospect Amed Rosario.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (60-50 / 25-18)

ST. LUCIE 1, FT. MYERS 0 F/7 (Box)

There was supposed to be a doubleheader last night, but rain prevented the second game from being played. The two teams will play a doubleheader tonight to conclude the series.

Josh Prevost and Corey Taylor combined on a three-hit shutout of the Miracle last night, and Kevin Taylor’s double play ground out provided the only runs of the game.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (52-63 / 16-29)

GREENVILLE 2, COLUMBIA 1 (Box)

The Colaflies went 0-for-7 with RISP and left 10 men on base as the second half woes continue with a 2-1 loss to the drive. Gaby Almonte pitched five excellent innings and Dash Winningham paced the offense with two hits, but it simply wasn’t enough to garner victory last night.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (26-25)

BROOKLYN 3, VERMONT 0 (Box)

Yes, Thomas Szapucki has been getting all the plaudits recently for very good reasons, but Harol Gonzalez has also been excellent for the Cyclones this season. His seven shutout innings gave him his fifth win of the season in 3-0 victory over the Lake Monsters last night. Desmond Lindsay had two hits, including his second home run of the season, and he added a walk and two runs to play NY-Penn League offensive stud for the night.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (17-29)

BRISTOL 8, KINGSPORT 7 (Box)

Oh, I love Appy League baseball. It’s a place where five-run leads in the top of the third inning vanish in the bottom of the third, and six errors is just another Tuesday in paradise. The K-Mets offense was on point last night with four of their seven hits going for extra bases, but the bullpen couldn’t hold the lead as the Pirates won the game on a Jhoan Herrera single.

Rookie - GCL Mets (16-22)

GCL CARDINALS 4, GCL METS 2 (Box)

You know who leads the Gulf Coast League Eastern Division? The Cardinals, who manage to irk me even at the GCL level and defeated the GCL Mets last night by a score of 4-2.

Well, it had to be done: Amed Rosario
