Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (21-32)

EL PASO 6, LAS VEGAS 3 (Box)

The Chihuahuas dominated action for most of the game, keeping the 51s off the board for most of the game while getting to Sean Gilmartin early for two runs in the second and three runs in the third. Las Vegas finally got on the board in the bottom of the seventh, when Gavin Cecchini hit a two-run homer off of reliever Rafael De Paula. Amed Rosario added an RBI single a few batters later to make it a 5-3 ballgame and bring the 51s within striking distance, but the offense sputtered and wasn’t able to come through in the end.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (28-18)

TRENTON 4, BINGHAMTON 3 (Box)

In a battle for first place in the Eastern League Eastern Division, the Trenton Thunder won the first battle. It looked like Binghamton might come out on top, as the Ponies scored three runs in the top of the sixth, but Trenton came thundering back when Tim Peterson came in to replace Donovan Hand in the eighth. The right-hander allowed three runs to score, tying the game up at three apiece. Things started off inauspiciously in the bottom of the ninth when first baseman Matt Oberste missed a catch and allowed the lead-off hitter to get on base, and sure enough, he came around to score on a walk-off single.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (26-26)

ST. LUCIE 4, DAYTONA 3 (Box)

Chris Flexen most likely would have started the 2017 season with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies if he hadn’t needed surgery earlier in the year, and in his third start this season, the right-hander showed why. He looked stronger than Roman Reigns in his five-plus innings, his only mistake a Gavin LaValley solo shot in the fourth. In the sixth, Nick Senzel plated an unearned run, giving the Tortugas a two run lead, but Arnaldo Berrios scored on a balk in the bottom of the inning and Jhoan Urena plated a run to tie things up at 2-2. In the bottom of the eighth, Urena plated a second run, giving St. Lucie the lead.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (26-23)

COLUMBIA 8, AUGUSTA 2 (Box)

The Colaflies improved to 6-0 at home against the GreenJackets thanks to a big second inning and a bunch of early runs. Columbia was already up 1-0 when they sent nine batters to the plate in the second, knocking starter Stephen Woods Jr. out of the game after just an inning and a third. Every Columbia starter with the exception of Desmond Lindsay notched at least one hit- and Lindsay did at least draw a walk, with infielders Andres Gimenez and Milton Ramos having multi-hit nights. Meanwhile, Jordan Humphreys had another strong performance, picking up his league-leading eighth win.
