*All results from games played on Tuesday, July 5, 2017

Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (33-53)

LAS VEGAS 7, EL PASO 3 (Box)

The 51s took a 6-0 lead after three innings and cruised to a 7-3 win from thereafter. Travis Taijeron went 4-for-4 and slugged his sixteenth home run in the process, while Dominic Smith and Amed Rosario each went 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Journeyman Mitch Atkins had himself a night, throwing six strong innings and collecting two hits.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (45-35)

BINGHAMTON 4, ALTOONA 3 (Box)

Chris Flexen continues to be persistently awesome in the Eastern League, throwing seven strong innings and collecting two hits as the Ponies took down the Curve last night. The Bingo offense struck early against starter J.T. Brubaker, knocking the Altoona starter out in the third inning with four runs on eight hits. As is seemingly the theme with all Rumble Pony save opportunities, Cory Burns put two men on in the bottom of the ninth before getting the save.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (3-10/36-45)

ST. LUCIE 8, CHARLOTTE 4 (Box)

St. Lucie brought out the big bats yesterday and Nick Sergakis and Tim Tebow each went deep in their 8-4 victory over the Stone Crabs. Joe Shaw didn’t have to be excellent, but he earned the victory allowing four runs over six innings.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (5-9/45-36)

GAME ONE (COMPLETION OF 7/4 SUSPENDED GAME)

AUGUSTA 5, COLUMBIA 3 (Box)

Harol Gonzalez dug himself a hole in the first game, allowing five runs in the first inning to put the Colaflies in a deficit from which they would not recover. Jay Jabs and Brandon Brosher each hit home runs in the defeat.

GAME TWO

AUGUSTA 7, COLUMBIA 2 (Box)

Columbia’s bats were silent until the ninth inning along with three errors as the Colaflies dropped an ugly game two 7-2. Gabriel Llanes allowed five runs in six innings, although only two were earned. Jacob Zanon was the only Firefly with a multi-hit game, he is now hitting .304/.412/.444 in 52 ABs in the SAL.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies activated CF Desmond Lindsay from the 7-day disabled list.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (3-11)

BROOKLYN 10, TRI-CITY 1 (Box)

The Cyclones went to the Capital District and laid capital punishment on the Valley Cats last night. Every Cyclones player had a hit, and the tandem of Nicolas Debora, Gunnar Kines, and Trey Cobb allowed just six hits to their vanquished foes.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (4-8)

BRISTOL 9, KINGSPORT 4 (Box)

In all honesty, Kingsport games are my favorite to write about because you never know what you will get and even when you see the score there are surprises in the box score. This game was looking rosy for six innings as the K-Mets had a 4-0 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth. Bristol then tied it with four unearned runs in the sixth, and took the lead for good with two runs in the seventh and three in the eighth to put this game out of reach.

ROSTER ALERT: LF Raphael Gladu assigned to Kingsport Mets.

Rookie - GCL Mets (3-5)

NO GAME
