Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (23-34)


Ricky Knapp threw five really good innings! Unfortunately, he threw a really bad one in the sixth that broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Aces the 4-1 lead they would never relinquish. After the 51s tied the game in their half of the sixth on a Dominic Smith groundout, Knapp was undone in the bottom frame by a two run Ketel Marte home run, and an Oswaldo Arcia triple that turned into a de facto home run thanks to a Gavin Cecchini throwing error. Despite only five hits the 51s had their chances to win this game, but squandered them by leaving 7 runners on base and going 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position.

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


Surprise, surprise, another Ponies game postponed by rain. This game will be made up as part of a doubleheader against the Portland Sea Dogs on August 18.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (29-27)


ST. LUCIE 5, FLORIDA 4 F/7 (Box)


ST. LUCIE 4, FLORIDA 2 F/7 (Box)

In game one, Andrew Church threw six strong innings, and Tyler Bashlor had a bit of an adventure in the seventh inning but was able to get the save to seal the 5-4 win. All five St. Lucie runs in this game were scored with two outs, and Patrick Mazeika continues his strong season with two more hits and a walk. He is now hitting .322/.407/.506 in 49 Florida State Games this season.

Game two was a Marcos Molina masterpiece, as the 22-year-old Dominican allowed one run on three hits in six innings while striking out seven. St. Lucie jumped all over Fire Frogs starter Ricardo Sanchez, with John Mora’s bases clearing triple in the second proving to be the big blow. Craig Missigman managed to allow the tying run to plate in bottom of the seventh, but Johnny Magliozzi came in and struck out Tyler Neslony to end the game.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (29-24)


Thomas Szapucki’s back! In his first start of the season, he allowed 3 runs on six hits in 4.1 innings to get a no-decision. Trailing 3-2 in the top of sixth, Michael Paez, who was sublime at the plate yesterday with 4 hits, slugged a two run home run to give the Colaflies the 4-3 lead; Columbia would add an insurance in the eighth on a Tim Tebow bases-loaded walk. Taylor Henry took the victory in yesterday, throwing 1.2 scoreless innings of relief.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Thomas Szapucki assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Brooklyn Cyclones.
