Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (20-30)


The 51s found themselves on the wrong end of a typical PCL slugfest on Saturday night. Starter Cody Martin was serviceable in the first five innings, but fell victim to the home run ball in the sixth, as both Mike Marjama and Zach Vincej went deep for the Rainiers. Las Vegas was able to stay in the game thanks to some small ball and two Tacoma errors, but the 51s bullpen would unfortunately end up pouring gasoline on the fire and putting the game out of reach. Tim Peterson gave up four runs in the 9th inning, which turn a close game into a lopsided final result. Christian Colon picked up two hits in the loss, including his first triple as a member of the 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (25-22)


Peter Alonso came through yet again for the Rumble Ponies in Saturday’s game, blasting a two-run eighth inning home run and giving his team a 3-1 lead which they would not relinquish. This game was a pitchers’ duel from the start, with Hunter Harvey and Joe Shaw each posting solid starts for their respective clubs. Nonetheless, while Harvey is considered a valuable prospect for the Orioles, he lasted just five innings, and Shaw stymied the BaySox’ bats for seven dominant innings, keeping his team in the game and posting his first quality start of the 2018 season. Shaw struck out just four batters in the start, however, in keeping with his season-long trend of struggling to miss bats. Daniel Zamora worked a scoreless eighth inning and earned the win in relief, and Eric Hanhold nailed down the victory after Alonso’s bomb, posting his seventh save of the year.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed RHP Tyler Bashlor on the 7-Day disabled list, and activated SS Levi Michael from the 7-Day disabled list.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (19-23)


The Mets and Tortugas only made it halfway through Saturday’s game before the skies opened up in Daytona Beach, and play was suspended after the top of the fifth. All the offense in this high-scoring affair came in the fourth inning: Desmond Lindsay led off the inning with a home run for the Mets, and three batters later, Dash Winningham followed with a two-run double. The Mets would plate two more runs before the inning came to an end, but Daytona would answer right back on a two-run Ibandel Isabel home run off of St. Lucie starter Harol Gonzalez, and later, an RBI double from Brantley Bell. Moments later, the rain would ruin everyone’s Saturday at Jackie Robinson Stadium.

The Mets and Tortugas will resume the suspended game in the bottom of the fifth inning at 4 PM on Sunday, with a second game scheduled to take place thirty minutes after the completion of Game 1.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (26-21)


It was Harry Potter Night in Columbia last night, and the Drive bats remained under the spell of Fireflies starter Anthony Kay for most of the game. Kay lasted seven dominant innings, striking out eight, only allowing one run, and lowering his ERA to 3.59 in the process. This contest was out of reach quickly, as Hildemaro Requena dealt with a steady stream of baserunners and some less than stellar defense behind him. He let in seven runs before departing after four stressful innings. Blake Tiberi drove in two runs in the win, and now has an impressive 0.361 wOBA on the season. The win marks four in a row for the Colaflies, while Greenville falls to 11-36, the worst mark in the South Atlantic League.
