Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (5-10)

FRESNO 10, LAS VEGAS 8 (Box)

The 51s were looking stupendous through the first 18 outs of the game last night, as the tandem of Drew Smith and Logan Taylor held the Grizzlies to three hits and Bryce Brentz and Zach Borenstein each hit home runs to give Vegas a 7-0 lead after six innings. The last nine outs were downright ugly though, culminating in Jacob Rhame’s ninth-inning meltdown to give Fresno a lead they would never relinquish.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (4-7)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 5, BINGHAMTON 2 (Box)

Bingo never led against the FisherCats yesterday, being held to just four hits, one of which went for extra bases. Andrew Church kept the game close, allowing three runs in seven strong innings, but reliever Eric Hanhold allowed an eighth inning home run to Lourdes Guerriel Jr. to put the game out of reach.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (7-6)

ST. LUCIE 3, FLORIDA 2 (Box)

St. Lucie’s three-run rally in the top of the sixth erased a 1-0 deficit and proved to be the only runs needed as the Mets downed the Fire Frogs 3-2. Gabriel Llanes was as amazing as you can be without striking out a single batter, needing only 64 pitches to go seven innings, while Matt Pobeyreyko struck out the side in the ninth to get his first save of the season.

ROSTER ALERT: C Dan Rizzie assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Columbia Fireflies.

ROSTER ALERT: C Carlos Sanchez assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from St. Lucie Mets.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (9-5)

HICKORY 10, COLUMBIA 5 (Box)

Despite striking out 14 Crawdads last night, the Colaflies took this one on the chin as starter Tony Dibrell was tagged for all 10 runs in just 4.1 innings of work, putting Columbia into a hole from which it would never recover. While the pitching struggled immensely, the offense came to town with four players with multi-hit games last night, including two more from Edgardo Fermin. The 18 year-old Venezuelan shortstop is now hitting .309/.345/.509 in 55 at-bats this season.
