Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (29-46)


Pedro Lopez’ club got another win, something that has been hard to come by this season in Las Vegas. The 51s jumped out to an early lead, scoring three runs in the bottom of the first. Ricky Knapp gave two runs right back up in the top of the second, but Las Vegas scored two more in the bottom of the frame, and two more in the third to give them a 6-2 lead. Knapp gave up one more run in the sixth, but was overall very solid in his seven innings. Hansel Robles pitched the eighth and ninth, earning his second save with Las Vegas this season.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed RHP Wilfredo Boscan on the temporarily inactive list.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (39-30)



The Fisher Cats took an early lead, as starter Casey Delgado was both hittable and issuing free passes left and right, but Binghamton came rumbling back in the fourth, plating three runs and taking the lead. Fresh off being activated from the DL, L. J. Mazzilli put the Ponies on the board with an RBI double, and Luis Guillorme and Kevin Kaczmarski added to it by drawing bases loaded walks, forcing in two more runs. Champ Stuart drove in a very important insurance run in the fifth- he almost drove in two, but David Thompson was thrown out at the plate- as New Hampshire scored a run off of Tim Peterson in the ninth.



Scarlyn Reyes, Ben Griset, and Cory Burns combined to shut out the Fisher Cats in the endcap of yesterday’s doubleheader, which was a makeup from their May 5th postponement. Bingo got on the board first with a L. J. Mazzilli RBI hit, and added to their lead in the seventh, when Colton Plaia scored on a Kevin Kaczmarski ground out. New Hampshire barely even threatened, as they only notched two hits over the entire seven inning affair, and got only one man into scoring position.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated 2B L.J. Mazzilli from the 7-day disabled list.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (1-2/34-37)


Merandy Gonzalez looked sharp in his High-A debut, allowing a run on four hits while walking none and striking out five over six innings. He would end up being the hard luck loser, as the St. Lucie offense didn’t show up until the eighth, when the game was already 6-0. After Gonzalez was lifted, the bullpen had a hard time of things. Johnny Mags gave up a few runs in the top of the seventh, and left-hander Kevin Canelon allowed three in the top of the eighth. Back-to-back HBPs and a walk loaded the bases for St. Lucie in the bottom of the eighth, but a Peter Alonso sac fly was all they were able to manage, as reliever Brandon Lawson was able to navigate out of the mess he caused.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (1-2/41-31)


Things weren’t looking good for the Fireflies, as they trailed 3-0 going into late innings. A Jay Jabs RBI double and a Tim Tebow sac fly got the team on the board, but heading into the ninth innings, Columbia still trailed 3-2. Ben Wright was brought in to close the door, but the right-hander was unable to do so, blowing his fifth save. Dash Winningham and Jabs led off the inning with back-to-back walks, putting the tying run in scoring position immediately. Milton Ramos laid down a successful sacrifice bunt, moving both runners over and pushing the winning run into scoring position. Tim Tebow hit a slow roller to first that allowed Andres Gimenez- pinch running for Winningham- to score, tying the game. One batter later, with Dan Rizzie at the plate, Wright uncorked a breaking ball that fell off the table, getting by catcher Daniel Gonzalez. Jabs read the carom perfectly and scampered home from third, winning the ballgame.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (2-3)


The newly inked Gunnar Kines didn’t exactly impress in his first start with the organization, and Joe Napolitano logged another poor outing out of the bullpen, resulting in another Cyclones loss. Twenty-seventeen draftee Carl Stajduhar made his professional debut, going 0-2 with a walk, while Walter Rasquin and Jose Medina both had three hits apiece. While the Renegades were 5-15 with RISP and belted four home runs, the Cyclones roster looked anemic, with the team going 1-13 with runners in scoring position.

ROSTER ALERT: 3B Carl Stajduhar assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (2-0)
