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

LAS VEGAS 21, FRESNO 6 (Box)

What can I say folks? That’s the PCL for you. Suffice to say, the Grizzlies’ pitchers fooled no one last night. Every Las Vegas hitter got on base at least twice, with Dom Smith having the best offensive night out of everyone, notching four hits and hitting his first home run of the year. The final score of 21-6 set new highs for the Las Vegas 51s against Fresno in runs and margin of victory, both of which had been set in 2015, when Las Vegas beat them 17-4 51s on April 18 at Cashman Field.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (2-3)

PORTLAND 3, BINGHAMTON 2 / 10 (Box)

It came down to a proverbial photo finish, but the Portland Sea Dogs barely finished off the Rumble Ponies in ten innings, staying undefeated and handing Binghamton their third straight loss. Binghamton scored first, plating a run in the top of the second on an L.J. Mazzilli ground out, but Portland immediately got that run back in the bottom of the inning. Two innings later, Mike Olt – the same Mike Olt of Dickey trade fame – hit a solo home run off of knuckleballer Mickey Jannis to put Portland up 2-1. The score stayed 2-1 until the top of the ninth, Binghamton got to Sea Dog closer Williams Jerez, loading the bases on two walks and a single. With the bases juiced, Colton Plaia tied the game with a groundout that plated a run, tying things at 2-2 and eventually forcing extra innings. In the top of the tenth, Binghamton got two men aboard, but failed to score. Tzu-Wei Lin led off the bottom half of the inning with a double, moved over to third on a sacrifice bunt, and scored Cory Taylor barehanded Aneury Taveraz’ dribbler back to the mound, narrowly sliding under Plaia’s tag.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (2-4)

BRADENTON 7, ST. LUCIE 5 / 14 (Box)

It took them a hair over four hours, but the Bradenton Marauders stayed undefeated, beating the St. Lucie Mets in fourteen innings. The game went back-and-forth, with both team scoring in bunches. Down by three runs in the eighth inning, Dale Burdick hit a three-run homer off of Bret Helton, tying things up. The game would then go into extra innings, with both teams getting plenty of men into scoring position but failing to get them to cross the plate. Things got so crazy that manager Chad Kreuter had utility man Jeff Diehl pitch and inning and second baseman Nick Sergakis pitch an inning. Things went well for Diehl, allowing a single and striking out a batter(!) in his inning of work, but they didn’t go good for Sergakis. The gritty infielder allowed a two-run homer to Mitchell Tolman in the top of the fourteenth, which proved the difference when St. Lucie went down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the inning.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (5-1)

HICKORY 5, COLUMBIA 1 (Box)

Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. The Columbia Fireflies lost their first game in 2017. Starter Blake Taylor looked good early, but things fell apart for him in the sixth. He hit a batter, allowed a single, and walked a batter, promoting Jose Leger to make a call to the bullpen. Slider specialist Austin McGeorge struck out the first batter he faced, but Anthony Dimino couldn’t hold on to the ball, and as a result, a run scored. Even if he had, that same run would have crossed the plate a few batters later when catcher Isaias Quiroz hit a bases-clearing triple.
