Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (16-25)

IOWA 6, LAS VEGAS 5 (Box)

An eighth-inning meltdown from Alberto Baldonado turned a 5-2 lead into the 6-5 deficit that would eventually decide the game, as Vegas was handed their third straight loss to the Cubs and their seventh loss in their last eight games. Josh Smoker threw four strong innings in his second Triple-A start since being assigned to Las Vegas, striking out five and only allowing one earned run. Down 2-1 in the seventh inning, the 51s’ bats came alive, scoring four runs on five hits and a walk to take the 5-2 lead before relinquishing it the next half inning. Dominic Smith had three hits last night, and is now hitting .372 in his last 10 games.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (20-14)

BINGHAMTON 8, ALTOONA 5 (Box)

P.J. Conlon struggled for most of the night, but the Pony offense provided him with enough support for him to earn his fourth win on the season, as Bingo toppled the Curve 8-6 last night. David Thompson had three hits, including his third home run on the season, and L.J. Mazzilli continues to hit since returning to Binghamton, going 2-for-3 with a triple and a walk.

ROSTER ALERT: Gustavo Nunez assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Binghamton Rumble Ponies

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (18-23)

LAKELAND 2, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

Yes, the Mets lost 2-1, but the theme of the night was Mets rehabbing. Steven Matz and Seth Lugo each threw effective innings in their first professional appearances of the season and Travis d’Arnaud went 2-for-4. The game itself was rather dull as Cameron Griffin allowed the eventual game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth to ensure defeat for our FSL heroes.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (21-17)

COLUMBIA 3, WEST VIRGINIA 2 F/10 (Box)

Pinch-runner Desmond Lindsay scored on a walk-off wild pitch as the Fireflies capped their comeback victory in dramatic fashion against the Power last night. Merandy Gonzalez continued to be a nightmare for hitters in the Sally, throwing seven shutout innings as Columbia was holding a slim 1-0 lead. Joseph Zanghi blew the lead in the eighth inning, allowing two runs on a hit and a walk. Trailing by that same 2-1 score heading into the bottom of the ninth, Michael Paez led off the inning by reaching on an error. The next batter, Dash Winningham, got thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double, but Paez was able to score on the throw and tie the game. Andres Gimenez continues to impress in his first season stateside, as the 18-year-old Venezuelan shortstop collected two more hits to boost his season OPS to .737.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed Ricardo Cespedes on the 7-day disabled list
