Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (13-15)


The 51s were held to four hits last night as the Tacoma Rainiers won their third straight over Las Vegas, 8-1. Kevin McGowan, making a spot start, allowed two runs in 2.2 innings while Beck Wheeler and Cory Burns continued their awful starts to the season, each allowing three runs in 1.2 innings of relief. Desmond Jennings’ RBI single in the second was all the offense the team could muster on the night, as Tacoma only had to face four batters above the minimum to silence the Vegas bats.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (14-9)


Eight of the nine Rumble Pony starters had at least one walk and Bingo pitching struck out 12 Fisher Cats last night paving the way to a 9-4 win, the fifth in a row for our Eastern League heroes. The bats came out early and often, knocking out New Hampshire starter Sean Reid-Foley in the first inning and taking a commanding 8-2 lead by the fifth innings. Luis Guillorme, in addition to catching wayward bats, continues to use them to sting the ball with two more hits last night, raising his season splits to .326/.400/.382. Despite the score, Binghamton pitching allowed eight walks and seven hits in the first seven innings, giving the Fisher Cats plenty of chances to make this game close but were able to escape most of the jams.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (11-17)


The Marauders plundered the Mets pitching last night, scoring seven runs against starter Andrew Church en route to 9-4 victory. Down 5-0 after two innings, the St. Lucie bats came alive in the third, scoring three runs on four hits to close the deficit to two. However, Church allowed two more runs in the bottom of the inning and the hitting simply could not compensate. Jhoan Urena and Jeff Diehl had multi-hit games last night, with Urena’s three hits raising the 22-year old’s season splits to .362/.464/.500.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (14-13)


Columbia rain washed away the rubber game against the Delmarva Shorebirds last night, and will be completed May 11 in Delmarva as a the first game of a doubleheader.

The Fireflies are back in action tonight, beginning a four-game series against the Lakewood BlueClaws at Spirit Communications Park. First pitch is at 7:05.
