Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (11-19)


Last night, the 51s were dismantled by the Salt Lake Bees by a score of 11-5. Corey Oswalt started the game on the mound for the 51s and was rattled by the Bees’ battling lineup. In 2.2 innings pitched, he gave up five hits, two home runs, seven earned runs, and three walks. He was taken out of the game in third inning. Unfortunately for the 51s, their struggles on the mound continued as their relievers gave four earned runs and two home runs.

At the plate, Dominic Smith, Cody Asche, and Colton Plaia were productive. Asche hit his first home run in a 51s uniform while Smith and Plaia each grabbed a double and a run batted in.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (13-13)



The additional night of rest didn’t help the Rumble Ponies. In game one of the double header, they were defeated by the New Hampshire Fisher Cats by a score of 6-5. On the mound, Scott Copeland was very impressive. In 5.0 innings pitched, he had six strikeouts, two walks, one earned runs, and three hits. In the sixth inning, the Rumble Ponies opted to go with reliever, Eric Hanhold. Unfortunately the change on the mound didn’t prove to be a smart one as Hanhold gave up five earned runs in 2.0 innings worked. At the plate, Tim Tebow and Jeff McNeil each hit a home run.



In game two of the double header, The Rumble Ponies fell to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats by a score of 4-2. Joseph Shaw started the game and like the Rumble Ponies’ game one starter, he proved to be successful on the mound. In 5.0 innings pitched, he had five strikeouts, two walks, one earned run, and six hits. In the sixth inning, the Rumble Ponies opted to go with Austin McGeorge on the mound. Unfortunately, it didn’t prove to be a smart move. In 0.2 innings worked, he gave up two hits, two earned runs, and two walks. Fortunately for the Rumble Ponies, their second reliever of the game, Adonis Uceta faired a bit better and grabbed three strikeouts in 1.1 innings. At the plate, Jeff McNeil grabbed his second home run of the day.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (12-16)


The Mets broke their losing streak as they defeated the Palm Beach Cardinals by a score of 7-4. Gary Cornish started the game on the mound for the Mets, but gave up six hits and two walks in 5.0 innings pitched. After Cornish, the Mets opted to go with Stephen Nogosek, Joseph Zanghi, and Ryder Ryan. The Mets relievers performed very well against the Cardinals as they totaled five strikeouts, four hits, and one earned run in 4.0 innings. At the plate, Brandon Brosher and Ian Strom both had an ugly night. In total, they went 0 for 9 with three strikeouts. But, Jacob Zanon, Luis Carpio, and Gene Cone were impressive and combined for six hits in the ballgame.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (16-13)


The Fireflies grabbed their fourth consecutive win as they beat the Lakewood BlueClaws by a score of 9-7. On the mound, Anthony Kay started the game for the Fireflies. Unfortunately, he had a rough outing and gave up five hits, four earned runs, and two walks in 6.1 innings pitched. In the seventh inning, he was pulled and replaced by Conner O’Neil. He also struggled on the mound and gave up two hits, two earned runs, a walk in 1.2 innings pitched. After O’Neil, the Fireflies chose to put Stephen Villines into the game. This was a solid decision as he was able to keep the BlueClaws batting lineup at bay and grabbed two strike outs in his appearance. At the plate, Quinn Brodey and Giovanny Alfonzo were pivotal to the Fireflies success and combined for two home runs and seven runs batted in.
