Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (14-15)
LAS VEGAS 9, TACOMA 1 (Box)
The 51s ended their three-game losing streak by washing out the Rainiers 9-1 on an impressive start by Tyler Pill, who threw eight innings and struck out four batters. Pill, who finds himself in a possible ‘next man up’ situation given the Mets’ pitching staff’s injury woes, gave up his first earned run of the year during the sixth inning on an RBI single to Mariners prospect Tyler Smith.
The offense made quick work of the Rainiers’ pitching staff, capped by a pair of three-run homers from Travis Taijeron and LJ Mazilli. Gavin Cecchini and Amed Rosario both went 1-for-4.
