Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (10-10)


I’m really happy that this game was an early one, and not the usual Vegas 10 PM special, because this game would not have been worth staying up for. Erik Goeddel and David Roseboom really screwed the pooch in late innings, combining to allow ten runs- eight earned- in 1.1 innings. Before the spectacular late inning collapse, the game was actually competitive, with both teams tied 1-1. And then, Goeddel replaced Wilfredo Boscan, and that was all she wrote.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (8-8)


Donovan Hand and Michael Peoples dueled to a stalemate, each allowing three runs. Newcomer Jio Mier laced a tiebreaking RBI double down the third base line with two outs in the eighth to give Binghamton the lead, and Alberto Baldonado earn his second save of the season, bringing the Ponies back to the .500 mark. Of note, top prospect Francisco Mejia’s hit streak was ended when Patrick Biondi made a fantastic shoe string catch in the bottom of the eighth.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (7-12)


St. Lucie lost another one, their sixth in a row. Things got off to a bad start, as Thomas McIlraith left the game after throwing three pitches, apparently clutching his ribcage as he left the mound. The newly activated Jeff McNeil got things back on track, plating plating two runs in the bottom of the first thanks to a two-run homer, but Craig Missigman but St. Lucie way behind the eight ball when he allowed five runs in the third. St. Lucie chipped away, but when Justin Brantley allowed three more runs in the ninth, that more or less was that.

ROSTER ALERT: INF Jeff McNeil assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (11-9)


Gabriel Llanes was exceptionally sharp, keeping the Asheville Tourists off the board inning after inning, and his counterpart on the mound, Alejandro Requena was just as good. One, two, three innings, the two right-handers scattered a few hits here and there, but prevented those runners from scoring. When Llanes was removed from the game, Joel Huertas took the mount, and he was just as good as his predecessor, putting up zero after zero. The game took eleven innings before a team finally plated a run, and even then, the run might’ve been prevented with a little more heads-up defense: in the eleventh, Jacob Bosiokovic led off with a double, and after he was moved over by a Max George single, scored on a passed ball that went in-between Brandon Brosher’s legs. They wouldn’t need it, but Asheville added an insurance run one batter later when Jose Gomez laid down a suicide squeeze.
