Jhoan Urena - 2015 spring - Chris McShane Chris McShane

*All results from games played on May 8, 2018

Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (42-69)

FRESNO 11, LAS VEGAS 6 (BOX)

Ah, yes, the good ol’ PCL. Chris Flexen lasted only two innings, giving up seven runs (two earned) on eight hits and a walk en route to a 11-6 loss. He was victimized by a Ty Kelly throwing error, then by the nature of games played in the arid air of Las Vegas. The 51s’ offense made some noise of its own, with Dominic Smith knocking a triple and walking twice and Phillip Evans doubling and knocking in three runs. Kevin McGowan and Corey Taylor coughed up more runs out of the bullpen, however, stymieing any hope of a comeback.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (14-14)

HARTFORD 9, BINGHAMTON 7 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies lost a slog of a game 9-7 after Marcos Molina was shelled. Molina has simply not looked the same after returning from Tommy John surgery last season, and that continued today as he gave up seven runs in 4.1 innings. Jhoan Urena had the best night at the plate, hitting everything hard and going 3-for-4 with a triple. Peter Alonso notched another two RBI along with a walk and a single, and Patrick Mazeika went deep.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (13-17)

FLORIDA 8, ST. LUCIE 4 (BOX)

The Mets scored four runs in the bottom of the second, then packed up their bats and went home in an 8-4 loss. Michael Gibbons allowed three runs in the top of the second, but seemed to be saved by an offensive outburst led by Anthony Dimino. Two errors in the top of the fourth lead to four unearned runs against Adam Atkins, however, and St. Lucie never threatened again. Both Thomas McIlraith and Stephen Nogosek tallied four strikeouts in relief appearances in the loss.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (17-14)
