*All results from games played on Saturday, May 20, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (18-25)

LAS VEGAS 8, NEW ORLEANS 2 (Box)

The 51s were able to bookend their victory over New Orleans with three early runs and four late runs. Sean Gilmartin pitched five innings, allowing two runs- solid for the PCL. The offense, meanwhile, clicked on all cylinders, with every position player getting on base.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (21-15)

BOWIE 4, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

Binghamton scored first, but Bowie was able to pull out the victory. Corey Taylor pitched strong, but appeared to tire, allowing a pair of runs in his final two innings. His Corey counterpart, Corey Burns, allowed two runs in his inning of work, putting the Rumble Ponies behind the eight ball. Noted mensch and personal favorite minor league journeyman Cody Decker put Binghamton within reach by socking his fourth homer of the year in the ninth, but Lucas Long was able to hold on and end the game.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (19-24)

DUNEDIN 9, ST. LUCIE 3 (Box)

St. Lucie was able to score a pair of runs off of Dunedin starter Jordan Romero, but those two runs were all they were able to manage. Joe Shaw, on the other hand, was very hittable, allowing seven runs- six earned- on seven hits and four walks. The bullpen was solid after he was yanked, allowing one more run over the course of the rest of the game, but the offense was not able to dig out of the hole Shaw left them in.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (21-19)

WEST VIRGINIA 9, COLUMBIA 3 (Box)

Jake Simon is a kid to keep an eye on, but last night was a night to look away. The young southpaw allowed eight runs, four in the second and four in the third. The Fireflies hit three consecutive doubles with two outs in the fourth inning to get on the board and make it 8-2, and were able to able to add a run in the seventh thanks to a Jay Jabs RBI single, but at no point did they make it appear that they’d be able to make it even a close one. Even worse than the loss perhaps is the fact that Michael Paez left the game in the fourth inning, perhaps related to getting hit in the elbow in the first.
