Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (22-33)


The 51s got on the board early, with Amed Rosario scoring Brandon Nimmo on an RBI triple and Dom Smith bringing Amed home on a ground out. Travis Taijeron added two more ribbies in the top of the third, but the Reno Aces got those two runs back in the bottom of the inning when Ketel Marte hit a two-run homer. In the fourth, the 51s put the Aces into a big hole when Desmond Jennings, Gavin Cecchini and Steven Matz all got on base to lead off the inning. Brandon Nimmo connected on an Eric Jokisch offering and deposited it over the right field wall for a grand slam, his third homer of the year, making it an 8-2 game. Desmond Jennings added another run in the fifth, but so did the Aces. Steven Matz gave up some hard contact in the bottom of the inning, and the southpaw allowed two runs to score. Logan Taylor replaced him and allowed one more charged to Matz before getting out of the inning. The bullpen held things down from there, though things did get a little hairy at times.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (31-20)



Seth Lugo spun a gem in what could possibly be his last rehab start. The right-hander, who was touching 93 MPH on the gun, threw a double-header-shortened complete game, allowing only one run. The Rumble Pony offense had a little more luck against his counterpart on the mound, Travis Lakins. Binghamton pummeled him for ten hits and drew four walks, scoring five earned runs in the process. Tomas Nido, who has been heating up after a few suboptimal weeks to start the season, hit his fourth homer and brought his batting line to a solid .266/.310/.427. Cody Decker paced the offense with two hits, but every Rumble Pony hitter logged at least one.



After their offensive outburst in game one, the Ponies’ bats fell asleep in game two. P.J. Conlon pitched well, giving up two runs over five-plus innings, and Tim Peterson was solid in relief after him, but the offense was stymied by starter Jacob Dahlstrand and reliever Josh Smith. The two combined to allow seven baserunners in total. Six times, Binghamton got those men into scoring position, but the team went 0-for-6 with RISP. The only good thing about this loss was that everybody worked quick, and the hometown fans at NYSEG stadium only had to dedicate roughly two hours of their time to see the Ponies be led out to pasture.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (27-27)


Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (28-25)


The Colaflies took an early lead thanks to an Andres Gimenez two-run homer in the third and a solo shot off the bat of Ali Sanchez in the fourth, but the bullpen was unable to hold on to a slim 3-2 lead when he came in in the eighth. Darwin Ramos allowed the Suns to tie the game in the bottom of the eighth, and allowed a lead-off double in the ninth before being removed from the game. Adam Atkins replaced him, but allowed the home team to walk off in the bottom of the ninth after giving up an RBI single off the bat of Aldrem Corredo.
