Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (11-12)

LAS VEGAS 5, ALBUQUERQUE 4 (BOX)

Rafael Montero carried a no-hitter into the sixth in a 5-4 win for Las Vegas. Montero struck out nine and allowed two runs over 5.1 innings, but Ben Rowen blew the lead in relief. Travis Taijeron came to the rescue with a two-run, go-ahead double in the bottom of the eighth before Paul Sewald locked down the win with a scoreless inning. Elsewhere on offense, Amed Rosario continued to be unstoppable, launching his first home run of the season and going 2-for-4 to raise his average to .407. Dom Smith also had a pair of hits, as did Rafael Montero with the bat.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (10-9)

BINGHAMTON 7, NEW HAMPSHIRE 3 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies scored early and often against Blue Jays top prospect Sean Reid-Foley in a 7-2 Binghamton win. Thomas Nido finished a homer short of the cycle, and Matt Oberste hit his first home run of the season. Knuckleballer Mickey Jannis went 6.1 innings, striking out six and allowing two runs. The bullpen was strong as well, with Corey Taylor throwing 1.2 scoreless innings with two strikeouts.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (9-14)

ST. LUCIE 5, CLEARWATER 4 (BOX)

Tyler Bashlor weathered a three-run rally by Clearwater in the ninth as St. Lucie held on to win 5-4. Andrew Church started and tossed seven strong innings, striking out four and allowing only one run. Jeff McNeil homered again but left with an injury, while Patrick Mazeika drove in two runs of his own. Rehabbing Wilmer Flores went 0-for-3 with a run and played most of the game at third base.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (12-12)

HICKORY 9, COLUMBIA 8 / 10 (BOX)

Unlike St. Lucie, Columbia couldn’t hold a late lead, with Matt Blackman blowing a one-run lead in the eighth before Joseph Zanghi gave up the walk-off hit in the bottom of the tenth. Harol Gonzalez started this game and was shelled for seven runs in four-plus innings of work, surrendering three home runs. In an exciting development, top Dominican prospect Andres Gimenez made his stateside debut and promptly launched a home run in his first at-bat. Desmond Lindsay also went 1-for-3 with two walks.
