Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (30-48)


At one point, the Rainiers had a 5-1 lead over the 51s, and it looked like Las Vegas was going to have to add another tally in the loss column. Last night was not that night. The bats came alive late against the Tacoma bullpen and lifted the 51s to a victory. In the top of the seventh, Las Vegas scored two runs and closed the gap to 5-3, but the Rainiers scored two of their own in the bottom of the frame. Undeterred, the 51s went bonkers in the eighth, plating four runs and tying the game at 7-7. With two outs and the bases loaded, Phillip Evans laced a line drive into center to plate a run, and Victor Cruzado followed with a double that cleared the bases. Amed Rosario led off the ninth with a triple, his second in the last four games, and was immediately driven in by Dom Smith to give the 51s the lead. Hansel Roble pitched the bottom of the inning and earned the save, striking out two and inducing a pop-up.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (40-32)


It was the Corey Oswalt show last night over at Dunkin' Donuts Park. In between the raindrops, the right-hander tossed six scoreless innings and contributed to his own cause by hitting a solo home run. Sure, the Yard Goats’ home is a bandbox that literally the FBI is investigating- no, I am not making that up- but give the man his due. Matt Oberste contributed to the win by driving in the other run, the third of three consecutive singles in the eighth, that scored Luis Guillorme.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (1-3/34-38)


Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (2-3/42-32)


The Fireflies and the Legend played a crazy back-and-forth game, but in the end, Lexington came out on top. Columbia took the lead initially, scoring a run thanks to some wildness on the part of Legend starter Andre Davis, but the Legend took the lead in the bottom of the fourth, scoring four runs- three earned- off of Blake Taylor. In the seventh, the Colaflies added a run, making it 4-2, and then things got interesting. In the ninth, Arnaldo Berrios picked the most opportune time to hit his first homer of the season with Columbia, giving Columbia a 5-4 lead. The otherwise reliable Matt Blackham was brought in to save the game, but the move backfired, and Blackham ended up allowing two runs, giving the Legend the walk off victory.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (2-5)


Rookie - Kingsport Mets (3-2)


Johnson City came out swinging against Garrison Bryant, who was making his first start of the season. In the inning, he allowed three hits, walked a batter, and hit a batter, resulting in three runs crossing the plate. The 18-year-old settled down after that, tossing four more scoreless innings. Jacob Schlesener, the Johnson City started, tossed scoreless inning after scoreless inning himself, and the bullpen kept it up after he departed. In the bottom of the eighth, after Yeudy Colon made it 4-0 by giving up a run, Anthony Dirocie launched his second home run of the season, putting Kingsport on the board. Those two runs would be the only ones they would manage.

Rookie - GCL Mets (0-2)


Thanks to an error by GCL Nats shortstop Yasel Antuna, the GCL Mets were able to score two quick runs in the bottom of the first. Though the Nats got one of those runs back in the second, the GCL Mets plated another two runs on a Guillermo Granadillo double that brought home Gregory Guerrero and Luis Labron. The score stayed 4-1 for the next couple of innings and it looked like the GCL Mets were going to cruise to a victory…until the GCL Nats plated eight runs in the top of the ninth inning. Good job Miguel Gutierrez. Good job Yom Felipe. Improbably, they scored three runs in the bottom of the inning and gave it a good try, but their improbable comeback ultimately failed.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent RHP Chase Ingram on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.
