Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (20-31)


Andrew Church imploded in the fourth inning, allowing five runs to score and turning the 0-0 stalemate into a commanding Rainier lead. Neither Matt Purke nor Kyle Regnault were effective in their innings, leading to an 8-0 lead going into the later innings. The 51s were able to get on the board, plating four runs in the bottom of eighth, but regardless, Tony DeFrancesco seemed to have already given up. Center fielder Patrick Biondi was brought in to pitch the ninth, and as you would expect, it was not pretty. He gave up four hits and walked a batter before being moved back into the outfield and being replaced by…Matt den Dekker. den Dekker, to his credit, induced two weak pop-ups in foul territory near third base to end the inning.

He has appeared in three games so far this season as a pitcher and has yet to allow a run.




Go figure.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (25-23)


Making his Double-A debut after being summoned from extended spring training, pitching prospect Christian James looked a bit shaky at first. His command wasn’t there, and as a result, the 20-year-old allowed a pair of hits and walked a batter, letting the first three men he faced reach. Faced with a bases loaded situation, he was able to strike out Ryan Mountcastle on a breaking ball to notch the first out, but wasn’t able to escape the inning unscathed. He induced an Ademar Rifaela ground ball that would’ve been a double play had it been hit harder, but the ball dribbled down the first base line 45-feet or so, preventing the double play and allowing Cedric Mullins to score. He looked to settle down from then on in, inducing a ton of ground balls and striking out a handful of batters. He was removed from the game after four innings and gave way to Adonis Uceta, who was a bit rusty after not having pitched in a week. After loading up the bases, it looked like he would be able to get out of the jam he created when he induced what looked like a routine double play to second, but Jeff McNeil threw the ball away, allowing two runs to score. The Rumble Ponies stayed down by three- a manageable deficit- until the end of the game, when Austin McGeorge allowed a run in the eighth and Corey Taylor three in the ninth.

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



This game was initially suspended on Saturday and was to be completed yesterday prior to the start of their regularly scheduled game. Due to continued rain in Florida, the teams will now play the suspended game and the following nine-inning game on June 11, in Port St. Lucie.



Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (26-22)


The Columbia Fireflies got another good start out of David Peterson, but the left-hander was outshone by Drive right-hander Denyi Reyes, who tossed a complete game shutout. Reyes needed only 92 pitches to dispatch the Colaflies, who tallied only three hits on the evening- two off the bat of Ali Sanchez and one off the bat of Raphael Gladu. Peterson’s lone hiccup came in the second, when he allowed three hits that resulted in two runs crossing the plate. Greenville later added to their lead in the top of the ninth, when Nicolas Debora gave up an single to Ricardo Cubillan that allowed Kervin Suarez to score from second.
