Triple A - Las Vegas “Reyes de Plata” 51s (43-73)

RENO 5, LAS VEGAS 3 (BOX)

They can use a different name on Tuesdays, but that might not be even enough to hide the fact that the 51s are now a whopping thirty games below .500. Mitch Atkins turned in a ‘AAA Roster Fodder’ pitching line - six innings of three run, three walk ball. He’ll keep you in the game, sure, but overall, not that exciting. Albert Baldonado also allowed two runs in the eighth - putting the game just out of reach for Las Vegas.

The wheels officially fell off during the top of the sixth, when Atkins allowed a walk and a single to put two men on base before Kristopher Negron hit a two-RBI double. The 51s would get a run back in the bottom of the eighth when Gavin Cecchini hit a solo home run, but his efforts proved too little, too late.

Double A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (65-46)

BINGHAMTON 3, ERIE 0 (BOX)

Corey Oswalt and Binghamton’s bullpen were absolutely lights out on Tuesday night, pitching a shut out against the Erie Seawolves. Oswalt struck out five while allowing eight hits over six and a third innings. Over his last 10 starts, he has allowed just seven earned runs, striking out 43 and pitching to the tune of a 1.18 ERA.

Juan Lagares continues his rehab play, going 1-for-4 with 2 strikeouts and playing nine innings in center field. His first inning single made way for a Matt Oberste RBI double to give the Ponies their first run. David Thompson and Champ Stuart both his solo home runs in the second to keep the team ahead with a 3-0 lead.

Advanced-A St. Lucie Mets (52-61)

ST. LUCIE 4, FLORIDA 2 (BOX)

The Sunshine Mets did their offensive work during the sixth inning, as Peter Alonso hit a two-run home run to break open the scoreless game. Jhoan Urena hit a ground rule double and stole third base while Patrick Mazeika walked his way to first base. Wuilmer Becerra singled to bring in Urena and Jeff McNeil doubled to plate Mazeika.

With Justin Dunn as a late scratch, the Mets bullpen stepped up in his place. Gerson Bautista pitch two and a third innings while striking out two. Stephen Nogosek allowed the only two Florida runs.

Low-A Columbia Fireflies (58-53)

CHARLESTON 5, COLUMBIA 2 (BOX)

A ninth inning sacrifice fly put the RiverDogs ahead by a run and the Fireflies were unable to recover. Reliever Keaton Aldridge allowed a pair of singles to Diego Castillo and Oswaldo Cabrera. A force out pushed Castillo to third, and a sacrifice fly plated him to give the ‘Dogs a 5-4 lead. In the bottom of the ninth, Arnaldo Berrios hit a two out triple to give Fireflies a chance to tie, but left fielder Jay Jabs hit into a ground out to end the game.

Short-A Brooklyn Cyclones (14-33)

WEST VIRGINIA 7, BROOKLYN 3 (BOX)

Jose Geraldo had an acceptable, if short, outing, striking out four while allowing two runs (one earned) before Trey Cobb relieved him and surrendered a three run homer in the fifth to give the Black Bears the lead. Brooklyn did manage a few runs, most notably in the sixth, when a wild pitch pushed Walter Rasqun and Jose Miguel Medina into scoring position. Quinn Brodey hit into a ground out, scoring Rasquin. Carl Stajduhar hit a sacrifice fly to bring in the second run of the inning.

Rookie-A Kingsport Mets (18-27)

JOHNSON CITY 8, KINGSPORT 4 (BOX)

A four run rally in the ninth inning wasn’t enough to stave off defeat, and a sweep at the hands of the Cardinals. Kingsport starter Carlos Hernandez gave up six runs over four innings, including a pair of 2-RBI doubles in the third inning which broke the game open.
