Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (11-16)


Vegas was clinging to a 2-1 lead heading into the top of the sixth thanks to back-to-back homers leading off the fourth from Zach Borenstein and Bryce Brentz. Starter Drew Gagnon—solid until then, with seven strikeouts over the first five, tired quickly, as Sacramento struck for back-to-backers of their own to claim a 4-2 lead. The teams exchanged runs in the eighth—the River Cats on an RBI single by a rehabbing Hunter Pence—which left the 51s down two heading into the bottom of the ninth. However, Vegas staged an impressive rally. Phillip Evans got it started with a single, followed by a Johnny Monell. Luis Guillorme then followed a Gavin Cecchini single with one of his own to tie the game. With the bases loaded, Matthew den Dekker grounded into a force at home, but Zach Borenstein played the hero, grounding a single to right to walk it off for the 51s.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (12-11)


Marcos Molina endured a nightmare second inning for Binghamton last night, as the first six batters reached base, with five of them scoring. Molina settled down thereafter, only allowing two singles and a double thereafter as he made it through 6.1 innings, but the damage was done, and the Ponies never recovered. Binghamton didn’t score until the bottom of the ninth, as a Tyler Moore double cut the lead to two with nobody out. The RubberDucks called on Henry Martinez, and he retiring Levi Michael, Tim Tebow, and Patrick Mazeika in order, quelling the potential rally and ending the game, giving Akron the rubber game in the series. Red-hot and newly-minted Eastern League player of the week Peter Alonso was held to a pedestrian 1-4 with a single in the contest, his first game without an extra base hit since 4/24 against New Hampshire.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (11-14)


The Stone Crabs took it to Gabriel Llanes for his second straight outing, pounding out nine hits and scoring 10 runs (8 earned) off of the righty over 3.2 innings en route to the 13-3 blowout victory. A six-run bottom of the fourth put the game out of reach. Brandon Brosher went yard for the first time this year in the top of the fifth to plate the Mets’ final two runs.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (13-13)


The Colaflies cruised at home Wednesday evening, as Jeremy Vasquez’s two-run double in the first inning gave Columbia a lead they would not surrender, as they cruised behind 7.2 solid innings from Marcus Renteria to a 9-1 victory. Lexington did cut the lead to 2-1 with a run in the top of the fourth, but the Flies answered back with four in the bottom of the frame behind a bases loaded triple from Hansel Moreno and a Matt Winaker solo blast, then tacked on three more in the bottom of the fifth to put the game away. Columbia snapped a five-game losing streak, climbing back up to the .500 mark with the victory.
