Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (52-84)

SACRAMENTO 3, LAS VEGAS 1 (Box)

Josh Rodriguez drove in Las Vegas’ only run, an RBI single in the fourth, as the 51s fell to the River Cats, Las Vegas’ sixth loss in a row. Mitch Atkins wasn’t terrible, but his offense let him down. They managed only five hits on the entire night, with only two coming after the fourth inning.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (80-54)

BINGHAMTON 8, ERIE 3 (Box)

Luis Guillorme put the Rumble Ponies on the board with a two-run double in the bottom of the third, but Erie quickly tied things back up at 2-2 in the top of the fourth, and then took the lead on a solo shot by catcher Grayson Greiner. Erie held the lead until the bottom of the seventh, when Binghamton plated six runs on a variety of hits, including a Peter Alonso triple of all things. Ben Griset replaced Marcos Molina, who was solid over his seven innings of work, and blanked the SeaWolves over the final two frames of the ballgame, giving Binghamton their 80th win of the season. The Rumble Ponies are the second team in the Eastern League to reach the 80-win plateau; only the team they will meet in the playoffs next week, the Trenton Thunder, have more wins. The last time the team up in Binghamton won 80 or more games was 2014, when the Binghamton Mets went 83-59, eventually winning the Eastern League Championship.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (27-38/60-73)

FORT MYERS 5, ST. LUCIE 3 (Box)

St. Lucie gave Harol Gonzalez a lead by plating a run in the third and fourth, but the first place Miracle tied things up in the top of the fifth thanks to some situational hitting and a few fielding errors. The Mets plated a third run in the bottom of the inning, but couldn’t muster anything more than that.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (27-37/67-65)

ASHEVILLE 3, COLUMBIA 2 / 13 (Box)

It took 13 innings, but the Tourists beat the Fireflies, and adding insult to injury, Andres Gimenez left the game after a collision that involved second baseman Bobby Wernes attempting to steal second in the second inning. Asheville jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead by scoring a run in the top of the first, but Columbia got their affairs in order, and in the fifth, took the lead. Asheville tied things up at 2-2 in the seventh and both teams’ bullpens shone. In the end, the Tourists’ outlasted Columbia’s, as Matt Pobereyko allowed a run in his second inning of work.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (17-47)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (28-36)

ELIZABETHTON 6, KINGSPORT 3 (Box)

Anthony Dirocie gave Kingsport the lead in the bottom of the second when he swatted his eleventh home run, but the lead changed hands numerous times. Elizabethton took the lead for good in the ninth, when they scored three runs off of Mac Lozer.

Rookie - GCL Mets (19-32)
