Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (14-16)

ALBURQURQUE 11, LAS VEGAS 5 (Box)

Blake Beavan made his first start as a Las Vegas 51 and, well…it wasn’t good. Las Vegas’ offense work up in the middle of the game, but the Isotopes already had such a bulge that unless the 51s put up equally lopsided numbers, they had no chance. Unfortunately for Pedro Lopez’ club, no lopsided numbers were scored, and Las Vegas lost another one.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (13-9)

GAME ONE

NEW HAMPSHIRE 4, BINGHAMTON 2 / 7 (Box)

GAME TWO

BINGHAMTON 9, NEW HAMPSHIRE 0 (Box)

You win some, you lose some. Mickey Jannis was so-so in his start in Game One, and the offense wasn’t really there. P.J. Conlon was spectacular in his start in Game Two, and the offense clicked on all cylinders. That’s baseball, Suzyn.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (12-18)

FORT MYERS 11, ST. LUCIE 10 (Box)

First Data Field had a slugfest going on yesterday evening, but unfortunately, the Mets were on the losing side of it. Justin Dunn had a terrible outing, and frankly, he’s been having issues all season. He lasted only two innings, allowing eight runs- six earned- on nine hits. In addition, he threw two wild pitches and hit two batters. He’s been having command issues all season, and in this game, it really showed. Given that command issues were a possibility when I profiled Dunn last season, I hope he figures out how to better control his pitches, and quickly. It wasn’t all bad news, as Patrick Mazeika hit a home run, every position player logged at least one hit, and every position player got on base at least twice, but a loss in the W/L column counts all the same whether it’s a 1-0 pitching duel or a 50-0 schlubbing.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (14-15)

LAKEWOOD 1, COLUMBIA 0 (Box)

Nick Fanti kicked a lot of ass, and threw 8.2 innings of no-hit ball. At 113 pitches, manager Marty Malloy had an agonizing decision to make: let Fanti get another batter after walking Luis Carpio and throw who knows how many more pitches, or bring in reliever Trevor Bettencourt. I did not envy that man at that moment. He elected to go with the reliever, to a smattering of boos from the crowd. He promptly struck out Michael Paez on four pitches, and that was that, the fifth no-hitter in Lakewood Blueclaw history.
