Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (14-17)


Adam Wilk was supposed to be the starter yesterday in Albuquerque, but pressing issues in Queens forced Pedro Lopez to go with swingman Logan Taylor. He threw four solid innings before departing, but the 51s bullpen couldn’t hold a 3-1 lead as the Isotopes defeated Vegas for the second straight night, 5-3. Amed Rosario continued to rake with three more hits, two of which were doubles, while Gavin Cecchini also had a two-double game. Phillip Evans also slugged his second home run of the year, a two-run shot in the fourth that gave Las Vegas the 3-1 lead.

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


It’s not how you start, but how you finish as the Rumble Ponies erased a three-run deficit with a 10-run fifth inning that turned a close game into a laugher quickly. During the frame, Binghamton scored nine of the ten runs with two outs, Dale Burdick hit two home runs—his first two Double-A hits—and Jio Mier slugged a grand slam to put the game out of reach. Donovan Hand shrugged off his early inning struggles to pitch seven innings and earn the victory.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (12-19)


Offense was difficult to come by in this one, because for the first seven innings Nabil Crismatt and St. Lucie starter Dereck Rodriguez, son of Hall of Famer Pudge, matched each other inning for inning and kept this game scoreless. However, the wheels fell off for St. Lucie in the eighth, as reliever Cameron Griffin allowed two two-run home runs to put the Mets in a late hole from which they could not recover. St. Lucie was held to just three singles and two walks on the day, and never truly threatened the Miracle at any point in this affair.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (14-16)


After Saturday’s 1-0 no-hit loss to the BlueClaws, the Fireflies brought the offense on Sunday scoring seven runs on nine hits. The only issue was that Lakewood brought their bats too, and scored ten runs in completing a three game sweep of our South Atlantic League heroes. Harol Gonzalez was hit early and often as Lakewood took a 6-2 lead after three innings. Despite the pitching struggles and down 10-4 in the eighth inning, the Colaflies scored three runs via a double and four consective walks from BlueClaw reliever Jonathan Hennigan and had the go-ahead run at the plate in Andres Gimenez. However, the 18-year old grounded out softly to pitcher Will Hibbs to end the inning and Columbia went down in order in the ninth to clinch the defeat.
