Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (5-9)

LAS VEGAS 2, FRESNO 1 (Box)

The 51s won a rare PCL pitcher’s duel in the desert Wednesday night. No-hit into the seventh inning, Vegas made that one hit count when Bryce Brentz went yard following a Zach Borenstein walk with one out in the bottom of the seventh. Chris Flexen was ineffectively wild, allowing five walks over four scoreless innings, while Jacob Rhame struck out two in the ninth in recording his second save of the year—but his first for Vegas, after recording one for his parent club before his demotion.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (4-6)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 5, BINGHAMTON 4 (Box)

The Ponies’ second rally of the game fell a bit short in the ninth as they fell to their sixth loss in their last seven games Wednesday night in New Hampshire. Down 2-0 in the sixth, a Peter Alonso double kickstarted a rally to tie the game. New Hampshire answered back with three in the bottom of the frame, and the score stayed that way until the ninth. An Alonso sacrifice fly and Patrick Mazeika single cut the lead to one, but MLB journeyman Craig Breslow came in to strike out Matt Oberste to close it out.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (6-6)

FLORIDA 7, ST. LUCIE 6 (Box)

The Mets put up one in the sixth and two in the seventh to tie the game, but Florida walked it off against Matt Pobereyko in the bottom of the ninth on an Alejandro Salazar single. Top prospect Andres Gimenez had an impressive game, with an RBI triple in the third and an RBI single in the fifth.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (9-4)

COLUMBIA 8, GREENVILLE 4 (Box)

After myriad injury setbacks, last year’s first round pick David Peterson had a successful 2018 debut, spinning six solid innings and recording a victory in the Colaflies’ 8-4 victory over the Drive. After Cannon Chadwick surrendered most of an early 5-1 lead, Quinn Brodey homered in the eight and again in the ninth to provide the comfortable margin of victory.
