Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (24-36)


The 51s and the Bees each scored in the fourth, fifth, and seventh innings, but Vegas managed crooked numbers in the fifth and seventh to claim the 5-3 victory. Wilfredo Boscan went 6.2 innings and surrendered all three runs in the quality start, and the Vegas bullpen kept the Bees quiet the rest of the way. Travis Taijeron doubled in a run in the fourth, and Brandon Nimmo tripled home two in the fifth. The final margin of victory was supplied courtesy of a two-run blast from top prospect Amed Rosario—perhaps hoping he could hop a reasonably short flight from Salt Lake City to Texas, after the game?

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Blake Beavan assigned to Las Vegas 51s from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed RHP Ricky Knapp on the temporarily inactive list.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (32-21)

GAME 1: RICHMOND 8, BINGHAMTON 4 /7 innings (Box)

Richmond turned a tight game into a blowout late against the Binghamton bullpen—primarily against the erratic Scarlyn Reyes—as the Flying Squirrels took the first game of the doubleheader from the Rumble Ponies by an 8-4 count. Binghamton tied the game at one in the bottom of the third on a Luis Guillorme RBI groundout, but Richmond put up single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth before blowing it open with four runs in the seventh. It was Richmond's first victory over Binghamton this year after four straight defeats.

GAME 2: BINGHAMTON 3, RICHMOND 0 /7 innings (Box)

It was new level, no problem for Chris Flexen in the nightcap, as the Rumble Ponies rode the young righty making his AA debut to a split of the double-header in this makeup of Tuesday's rainout. Flexen spun a seven-inning complete game shutout, leading Binghamton to the 3-0 victory. The Ponies took the lead in the fourth on a Kevin Kaczmarski sacrifice fly, plating Matt Oberste, who had led off with a triple. The offense plated a couple of insurance runs in the bottom of the sixth, with Oberste again sparking the rally with a one-out single. Flexen finished strong again, retiring 10 of the last 11 batters he faced.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated SS Jio Mier from the 7-day disabled list.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (30-27)


Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (31-24)


Merandy Gonzales joined teammate and fellow All-Star Jordan Humphries atop the Sally with his eighth win of the season, hurling six scoreless innings Wednesday, striking out five and lowering his ERA to 1.56 in the process. A consistent offensive attack backed Gonzales, as every starter recorded at least one hit and the Colaflies dented the scoreboard in each inning from the second to the fifth. The results are starting to come for Desmond Lindsey, as he reached base at least twice for the sixth straight game, going 2-4 with a double, RBI, and a run scored—a line equalled by Ali Sanchez. Columbia goes for the sweep—and their sixth straight home victory—tomorrow afternoon.
