Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (9-15)


Making his first start of the 2018 season, veteran pitcher Vance Worley looked a bit rusty, putting the 51s in an early hole by allowing a pair of runs in the first. The team got those runs back in the top of the fourth, when Luis Guillorme clubbed a double into right that scored Dom Smith and David Thompson, but the wheels fell off in the bottom of the inning. After walking the bases loaded, Worley was replaced by Kevin McGowan. McGowan allowed all of those inherited runners to score, and then some, giving the Isotopes a 6-2 lead. Ty Kelly was able to plate a run in the fifth to make it a 7-3 ballgame, but Tom Murphy homered to lead off the bottom of the inning, giving Albuquerque a four-run lead once again. The 51s threatened late, as two runs in the eighth made it a 7-5 ballgame and Matt den Dekker hit a solo blast to bring Las Vegas within one, but Phillip Evans grounded out with runners on the corners to end the comeback and snap Las Vegas’ winning streak.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Vance Worley assigned to Las Vegas 51s

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s released LHP Kelly Secrest.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (11-9)


For the first few innings of yesterday’s game, Joe Shaw and Tyler Alexander traded zeroes, scattering a few hits apiece. The Rumble Ponies got on the board first, plating a run in the fourth inning when Nick Sergakis drove in Peter Alonso with a ground out. An inning later, Alonso drive in two of his own with his seventh home run of the season, tying Jhalan Jackson for most in the Eastern League. Shaw let Erie score their first run of the game in the sixth and was lifted right after doing so. His replacement, slider-specialist Austin McGeorge, allowed a few more runs to score, tying the game up at 3-3. David Roseboom was brought in to pitch the seventh and allowed another run, giving the SeaWolves the lead for the first time in the game. Facing Erie closer John Schreiber in the ninth, the Rumble Ponies were able to tie the game when Nick Sergakis led off the inning with a double and was driven in on a Tyler Moore single. Joshua Torres threw a scoreless bottom of the inning, prompting extra innings. Jeff McNeil began the top of the tenth on second base as part of the new (stupid) rules Major League Baseball began implementing in minor league games this season and scored after Peter Alonso and Matt Oberste hit back-to-back singles to move him up. Ty Bashlor began the bottom of the inning with a runner on second and also began the inning with a single, but he got the next three innings to put the game to bed. With the sweep, Binghamton is now 5-1 against Erie.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Marcos Molina assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from Las Vegas 51s.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (10-13)


Justin Dunn got BABIPed in the first inning, giving up a pair of runs on three singles and a walk, but he settled down and a St. Lucie run in the bottom of the first and second brought the game back to a tie. A Dale Burdick throwing error led to a run and the Cardinals retaking the lead, but then things got wacky. In the top of the seventh, Ryder Ryan and Matt Blackham combined to allow five runs, giving Palm Beach a commanding lead. In the bottom of the seventh, Jacob Patterson and Jason Zgardowski combined to allow four runs, putting St. Lucie back within reach. Unfortunately, St. Lucie would not score again, handing them their thirteenth loss of the season.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (12-12)


Both Columbia starter Chris Viall and Augusta starter Garrett Cave were wild but effective, with the former allowing a run on two hits, walking five and striking out five in five innings and the latter allowing no runs over four innings, allowing two hits, walking four, and striking out seven. In the eighth, the GreenJackets doubled their lead with a Ryan Kirby solo homer off of Stephen Villines. All in all, it was a completely forgettable performance on both sides of the ball for both teams. Jeremy Vasquez added to his already very impressive streak, going 1-4 and now safely getting on-base in 23 straight games.
