Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (10-12)


The Isotopes got to starter Ricky Knapp early, scoring four runs in the top of first and taking a 6-0 lead by the fifth inning in their 8-4 win over the 51s. The loss was Vegas’ third straight and sixth in their last eight games as Albuquerque starter Jeff Hoffman threw seven one-hit shutout innings to get the win. The only Vegas player with a multi-hit game was Amed Rosario, who is now hitting .450 in his last 10 games and .402/.444/.476 on the season.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (9-9)


Much like their Triple-A brethren, the Rumble Ponies were done in by allowing four runs in the top of the first en route to a 7-5 defeat last night. Casey Delgado did pitch well after that calamitous first inning, allowing just two more runs in his final 5 innings of work, but still took his fourth loss of the season. Champ Stuart, who had been struggling mightily for most of the season, continued his four-game hit streak in style with three hits, including his first home run of the season. He also stole two more bases to raise his season total to 11, and remains perfect in his attempts.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (8-14)


Poor fielding hurt the Mets last night, as three errors led to four unearned runs in their 7-2 loss to the Clearwater Threshers. Joe Shaw took the loss, allowing three runs (one earned) in five innings. In addition to Brandon Nimmo, Lucas Duda made a rehab start last night at first base for St. Lucie, going 1-for-3 with a strikeout.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (12-11)


A clarification: as of Friday morning’s post, this game was suspended due to fog and to be finished yesterday evening at 5:30 PM. However, on Friday morning about 45 minutes after publishing, the South Atlantic League declared that fog “is not a darkness event, but a weather event” and awarded the victory to Hickory due to baseball rule 7.02(b)(4)(a); page 100 of the previous link has more elaboration. A tip of the hat goes to the Crawdads Twitter account for information on these confusing events.

The Hickory Crawdads defeated the Fireflies 8-7 Thursday night in a game that featured six errors and a boatload of offense. Every Firefly starter except Gene Cone had a hit, with Desmond Lindsay playing offensive stud with two hits, including his first home run of the season, and five RBI. Colin Holderman only lasted 2.2 innings, and while three of his six runs allowed were not earned, he struggled with his command as only 26 of his 51 pitches went for strikes. The Fireflies has numerous chances to put this game away before the fog came, but only went 3-for-14 as a team with runners in scoring position.


In an all around ugly affair reminiscent of Thursday night, the Hickory Crawdads only needed eight hits to defeat the Fireflies last night, 11-7. Blake Taylor was less than stellar in his four innings, allowing 10 runs, but his own defense and the other behind him did him no favors as only four of those runs were earned. This has been a theme lately, as Columbia has allowed 19 runs the in first two games of this series, but only eight of them have been earned. Every Firefly starter had a hit last night, including Desmond Lindsay swatting a home run for the second consecutive game.

Star of the Night(s)

It takes a special circumstance, but Desmond Linsday gets the nod for his last two games.
