Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (7-5)

LAS VEGAS 7, SACRAMENTO 5 (BOX)

Dom Smith was the hero on Monday night, as his two-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the tenth gave the 51s a 7-5 win over Sacramento. Smith also had two singles on the day, while Amed Rosario continued his hot start with a 2-for-5 performance. On the pitching side, Ricky Knapp had a solid Vegas start, allowing four runs over seven innings with four strikeouts, and the recently-demoted Paul Sewald pitched two scoreless innings and got the win.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (5-5)

BINGHAMTON 8, PORTLAND 3 (BOX)

Knuckleballer Mickey Jannis got his first win of the season in an 8-3 win against Portland. Every Rumble Pony batter except for first baseman Matt Oberste had one walk, and Kevin Kaczmarski blasted his first home run of the season. In news more relevant to the major league team, Jeurys Familia recorded another easy inning, striking out one in a perfect frame.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (6-6)

ST. LUCIE 11, DUNEDIN 10 (BOX)

In a game that featured three home runs for the Mets and a pitching appearance for outfielder Jeff Diehl, St. Lucie triumphed over Dunedin 11-10. Down 5-1 at one point, home runs from Wuilmer Becerra (a great sign for his healing shoulder), Patrick Mazeika, and Diehl propelled the Mets past the Blue Jays. The bullpen, with the help of one-third of an inning from Diehl—who entered the game when Tyler Bashlor injured himself fielding the ball—held off a late rally to lock down a doozy of a win. Jhoan Urena, once Amed Rosario’s companion on the left side of the infield, also had a strong day with two doubles and a walk.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (7-5)

ROME 3, COLUMBIA 2 (BOX)

A late-inning rally wasn’t enough, as the Columbia Fireflies fell to the Rome Braves 3-2. Blake Taylor, essentially the ghost of Ike Davis, pitched six strong innings, walking three and striking out seven. The offense was largely quiet aside from Jay Jabs, who went 2-for-3 with an RBI and a walk, though Luis Carpio did swipe his fifth bag of the year. Tim Tebow made his first error in left and also poorly played a fly ball that allowed the eventual winning run to tag up from second to third.
