Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (6-14)

LAS VEGAS 7, ALBUQUERQUE 0 (Box)

P.J. Conlon was sharp in Albuquerque Wednesday night, making a first inning Bryce Brentz RBI double hold up over 6.2 innings. The 51s turned the taut affair into a rout in the top of the eighth, scoring six times to extend the lead to 7-0 thanks in large part to home runs from Zach Borenstein and Ty Kelly. The Isotopes did load the bases in the bottom of the eighth, but Drew Smith came in to quell the potential rally by retiring two batters. Smith then worked around a lead off triple in the bottom of the ninth to preserve the shutout.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (8-9)

BINGHAMTON 5, NEW HAMPSHIRE 4 (Box)

Nabil Crismatt went six solid innings, striking out six and allowing only one run, and left in line for his third win, as the Rumble Ponies led 4-1 at that point. However, the Binghamton bullpen gave that lead back, surrendering one run in the eighth and two in the ninth to a Fisher Cat attack led by uber-prospect Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., who drove in a run each in the eighth and the ninth. The Ponies sent the home crowd home happy, though, after Champ Stuart led off the bottom of the ninth with a double. After intentionally walking the bases loaded, Zach Jackson unintentionally walked Matt Oberste for the walk-off walk. Peter Alonso continued his hot start, going 2-3 with two walks and his fourth home run.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (9-10)

CHARLOTTE 11, ST. LUCIE 4 (Box)

The Mets actually took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the third courtesy of a Brandon Brosher two-run single in the frame, but the Stone Crabs roared back, putting up nine runs against Gabriel Llanes and Thomas McIlraith over the fifth through seventh innings en route to the 11-4 blowout victory. Charlotte had some help from the Mets, particularly in the fifth, where an error, passed ball and wild pitch contributed to two runs. Adam Atkins put up two stellar innings after the game was out of hand, striking out five of the seven batters he faced.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (12-8)

COLUMBIA 6, CHARLESTON 5 / 10 INNINGS (Box)

The Colaflies wouldn’t say die last night, putting up two runs in the top of the eighth to knot the game at 4, then scoring two more in the top of the tenth and holding on for the 6-5 extra inning victory. Quinn Brodey struck the tying blow with a two-run double in the eighth, while Jeremy Vasquez—2-4 with a home run and three runs scored—laced a triple in the tenth to put Columbia ahead, then came around with the eventual winning run on a Charleston error. Trey Cobb made the bottom of the tenth dramatic, allowing the first three runners to reach and one run to score before buckling down and retiring the final three batters to lock down his third save of the year and secure the win.

ROSTER ALERT: C Jay Jabs assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Columbia Fireflies.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies activated RHP Marcel Renteria from the 7-day disabled list.
