Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (1-3)

EL PASO 7, LAS VEGAS 2 (Box)

The 51s fell in the last of their four-game series to the Chihuahuas, 7-2. Sean Gilmartin took the loss after allowing three runs in 3.1 innings. Trailing 4-0 entering the eighth inning, Vegas rallied for two runs and had the tying run on base before Travis Taijeron grounded into an inning-ending double play. Erik Goeddel then allowed three insurance runs in the bottom of the frame to put the game out of reach, as Las Vegas only scored seven runs in the series.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (2-1)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 8, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

Despite 13 strikeouts by Rumble Pony pitching, our Eastern League heroes fell to the Fisher Cats yesterday, 8-3, in a game that was never close. Corey Oswalt surrendered four runs in the bottom of the first to give New Hampshire a lead they would never relinquish. Matt Oberste paced the bats with two hits, and Scarlyn Reyes and Alberto Baldonado each threw scoreless innings in relief.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (2-2)

ST. LUCIE 6, PALM BEACH 3 (Box)

St. Lucie scored five unearned runs in the top of the ninth to erase a 3-1 deficit and salvage a series split against the Cardinals. The offense, which had only one hit coming into the top frame, was able to take advantage of two Palm Beach errors and ensure starter Nabil Crismatt wouldn’t take the defeat. Relievers Justin Brantley and Alex Paisha were outstanding, combining for three scoreless innings.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (4-0)

COLUMBIA 6, AUGUSTA 0 (Box)

The Firefly train just keeps rolling as Columbia completed a Masters weekend sweep of the GreenJackets yesterday with a 6-0 win at Spirit Communications Park. The offense completely devoured Augusta pitching in this series, scoring 36 runs in the four games. Anthony Dimino and Gene Cone each had multi-hit games and three Colafly pitchers combined for a three-hit shutout, with starter Merandy Gonzalez’s six innings pacing the way. Oh, and Tim Tebow hit another home run.
