Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (5-14)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (7-9)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 9, BINGHAMTON 4 (BOX)

The Fisher Cats scored early and often on Andrew Church, tallying eight runs (six earned) in a 9-4 loss for the Rumble Ponies. Church struck out only two and allowed nine hits in a very, very ugly start. David Roseboom was better in relief, but the game was long since lost by the time he entered the game. Levi Michael had a home run and Tim Tebow went 2-for-2 with two walks in the loss, while yesterday’s star, Jeff McNeil, had only a single in five at bats.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (9-9)

GAME 1: ST. LUCIE 5, CHARLOTTE 3 / 7 (BOX)

Justin Dunn worked through some BABIP nonsense to earn his second win of the season in the Mets’ first game of the day. Dunn struck out six in 5.2 innings, working around eight hits and two walks to allow only two earned runs. On the offensive end, Dash Winningham was the start, homering and driving in three, while Andres Gimenez contributed a solid 2-for-4 day with a steal. Ryder Ryan (the return for Jay Bruce last season) earned his first save of the year.

GAME 2: ST. LUCIE 6, CHARLOTTE 5 / 8 (BOX)

The second game, a makeup of Monday’s rainout, went to extras (doubleheaders are only seven innings in the minors), but the Mets pulled off a 6-5 win. Tied at four heading to the eighth, the Stone Crabs drove in their free runner to take a 5-4 lead. The Mets rallied, however, loading the bases on a hit batter and a single. Dan Rizzie tied the game with a sacrifice fly, and Luis Carpio scampered home on a wild pitch to secure the walkoff win.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (11-8)

GAME 1: CHARLESTON 7, COLUMBIA 5 / 8 (BOX)

David Peterson was beat up in Columbia’s first game of the day, giving up five runs on nine hits in 5.2 innings. The Fireflies rallied, Stanford products Matt Winaker and Quinn Brodey, and the game was tied going into extra innings. Unfortunately, the Fireflies couldn’t capitalize on their free man on second in the top of the eighth, and Carlos Hernandez surrendered a walkoff, two-run home run in the bottom half. Lost in the shuffle is Stephen Villines still being way, way too good for the low minors - he now has a 17:2 K:BB in 11.2 innings and needs a promotion to Double-A yesterday.

GAME 2: CHARLESTON 2, COLUMBIA 1 / 7 (BOX)

In a makeup of Monday’s rained out game, Chris Viall was brilliant, but the Fireflies managed only three hits and lost 2-1. Viall struck out 12 in 5.1 innings, allowing two hits, two walks, and two runs. The Fireflies had only seven total bases, going 0-for-6 with RISP and leaving four men on base, so Viall go the the tough luck loss. Of note, Jeremy Vasquez had a hit in both games today, extending his franchise-record on-base streak to 18 games.
