Triple-A Las Vegas 51s (38-68)

NASHVILLE 1, LAS VEGAS 0 (BOX)

It was an uncharacteristically quiet night in Nashville, and the 51s dropped the last game of their series against the Sounds 1-0. Michael Brady, Bobby Wahl, and Corey Walters pitched a combined shutout, putting up 12 strikeouts while only allowing six hits. Las Vegas starter Mitch Adkins had a great start too, pitching seven innings and striking out eight while allowing one run, but unfortunately had no run support in his effort. Dominic Smith and Travis Taijeron both went 2-for-4.

Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies (58-44)

BINGHAMTON 1, NEW HAMPSHIRE 0 (BOX)

P.J. Conlon and the Binghamton bullpen pitched a gem to lead the ‘Ponies to victory against the FisherCats. Conlon pitched 6.2 innings while striking and walking three batters. Tyler Bashor pitched 1.1 frames while striking out three.

Binghamton’s lineup overall did not have a great night, but were backed up by the strong pitching performance. Tomas Nido went 2-for-3 with a run and David Thompson hit 1-for-3 with a run-scoring double.

Advanced-A St. Lucie Mets (47-56)

ST. LUCIE 6, BRADENTON 5 (BOX)

The Sunshine Mets exploded for five runs in the ninth inning to give them the win over the Bradenton Pirates. The offensive outburst was led by a pair of singles from Pete Alonso and Patrick Mazeika, the latter getting doubled home by Jeff McNeil. Tim Tebow singled in Mazeika, and Michael Paez walked to load the bases. Wuilmer Becerra added another run on a single, and a John Mora force attempt tied the game. Alonso would end up getting hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to give St. Lucie the victory.

Low-A Columbia Fireflies (54-46)

AUGUSTA 6, COLUMBIA 5 (BOX)

A poor outing from Matt Pobereyko gave the GreenJackets two runs during the top of the ninth to give Augusta the win. Pobereyko allowed a single to to Cristian Paulino, who stole second and move to third on a passed ball. A sacrifice fly brought home the tying run, and a throwing error from Pobereyko allowed the winning run to score.

Short-A Brooklyn Cyclones (12-25)

LOWELL 3, BROOKLYN 2, (BOX)

Brooklyn lost a heartbreaker in extra innings, as Michael Osinski hit an RBI single off Trey Cobb to beat the Cyclones 3-2. Brooklyn’s starter Darwin Ramos actually pitched well, going five strong innings while striking out six and allowing just two runs. Reliever Gunnar Kines was even better, pitching 3.1 innings while striking out five and only giving up one hit.

Quinn Brodey went 2-for-4 with a stolen base. Carl Stajduhar went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI.

Rookie Kingsport Mets (14-21)
