Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (20-27)

LAS VEGAS 4, SACRAMENTO 3 (Box)

Cody Asche got the 51s off to a quick start with his fifth home run of the year in the top of the first, but the River Cats answered right back, as Mac Williamson tripled and came in to score on an infield single by the rehabbing Hunter Pence. Speaking of rehab, Kevin Plawecki kicked off his assignment in style in third, blasting a two-run home run to stake Oswalt to a lead he would not surrender, as he allowed only one more hit over the rest of his six innings. Sacramento would add an unearned run in the sixth and one in the eighth off of a rehabbing Hansel Robles, but Tim Peterson closed out the game for the second straight night to secure the victory for Vegas.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RHP Hansel Robles on a rehab assignment to Las Vegas 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (22-22)

GAME 1: RICHMOND 3, BINGHAMTON 1 / 7 INNINGS (Box)

Binghamton took an early 1-0 lead in the third on Joey Wong’s first home run of the year, but Richmond finally got to Nabil Crismatt in the top of the fifth. Crismatt retired the first two batters of the inning, but then surrendered five straight hits, as the Squirrels plated three. The Ponies put runners on in the fifth and the seventh, but double plays killed rallies in each inning as Richmond took the opener.

GAME 2: RICHMOND 4, BINGHAMTON 1 / 7 INNINGS (Box)

Marcos Molina struggled throughout in this one, surrendering a quick run in the in the first inning of the nightcap, then wriggling out of jams in the third and fourth before the Flying Squirrels got to him again in the fifth, allowing two hits followed by an Aramis Garcia three-run bomb to extend the deficit to four. Peter Alonso put the Ponies on the board with a home run in the bottom of the sixth—his 12th, tying him with Cavan Biggio and teammate Jeff McNeil for the Eastern League lead. Nick Sergakis led off the bottom of the seventh with a single, but was gunned down trying to stretch it into a double, and any chance of a rally to avoid the sweep quickly disappeared, as Binghamton managed only seven hits total between the two games.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies released RHP Johnny Magliozzi.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (17-22)

ST. LUCIE 8, CLEARWATER 3 (Box)

The Mets got off to a hot start in this one, scoring two in the first and one in the second to take an early three run lead. Clearwater got to Michael Gibbons in the fourth though, tying the game and driving the starter from the game with the bases loaded. Matt Blackham game in to quell the rally. The bullpen shine the rest of the way, as Adam Atkins and Ryder Ryan would combin with Blackham to allow only two baserunners over the final 5.1 innings. Michael Paez untied the game in the bottom of the sixth with a three-run home run.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-21)

COLUMBIA 6, WEST VIRGINIA 5 (Box)

The Colaflies turned down the Power yesterday afternoon in Columbia, scoring four times in the bottom of the seventh to overcome a 5-2 deficit. Tony Dibrell had a rough, uneven start, allowing four runs while walking five batters over 5.2 innings pitched. He struck out the first two batters in the top of the sixth but eventually tired, allowing a triple and a double before yielding to Aaron Ford. Ford got out of the sixth without further trouble, but surrendered a run on three singles in the seventh. The prospects looked bleak at that time, but the Flies peppered the ball around the lot in the bottom of the frame, putting up four runs on six hits—all singles—with Jeremy Vasquez knocking in what would prove to be the game winner. Ford yielded to Trey Cobb, who closed out the victory.
