Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (26-38)

ROUND ROCK 10, LAS VEGAS 6 (BOX)

Despite throwing one of his best games as a Las Vegas 51, Chris Flexen took the loss after allowing six runs over seven innings. Round Rock right fielder Scott Heineman led the Express’s offensive onslaught, going 3-5 with a home run and six RBI, extending his hitting streak to 13 games. He also threw out a runner at the plate and then made a diving play to end the seventh inning, single-handedly ending Las Vegas’ offensive outburst in the inning. The 51s had another outburst in the bottom of the ninth, plating a few runs, but it was too little, too late.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed C Jeff Glenn on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to June 9, 2018.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Joseph Zanghi assigned to Las Vegas 51s from St. Lucie Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (34-28)

BINGHAMTON 6, TRENTON 0 (BOX)

Making his first Double-A start, Justin Dunn had a great game. Though the command looked shaky at times, he blanked the Thunder over his seven innings of work, helping the Rumble Ponies avoid the sweep in the Double-A Subway Series. Binghamton touched up Trenton starter Jonathan Loaisiga for four runs in two innings, and scored a pair of runs off of his replacement Michael King. Dunn and relievers Ryder Ryan and Ty Bashlor, on the other hand, blanked the Thunder and allowed a season-low three hits.

As for Dunn himself, the profile is still very much the same. The stadium gun showed him mostly sitting in the high-80s, which had me very worried, but I was informed by fellow nerd Jarret Seidler that the stadium gun was a little off and he was sitting in the low-to-mid-90s, which is where Dunn lives. The slider looked good, and what looked like a changeup was effective in getting swings-and-misses down out of the zone. The command wasn’t great, but that was in his profile since day one.

ROSTER ALERT: Justin Dunn assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from St. Lucie Mets.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (24-33)

LAKELAND 9, ST. LUCIE 3 (BOX)

Lakeland came out swinging. They knocked Blake Taylor out of the game early and had no troubles against relievers Adam Atkins or Matt Pobereyko. St. Lucie had a few moments, as Desmond Lindsay hit his first home run of the season and Michael Paez and Andres Gimenez both drove in a run apiece, but the game was practically all Lakeland.

ROSTER ALERT: Ezequiel Zabaleta assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Brooklyn Cyclones.

ROSTER ALERT: Ryan Selmer assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Kingsport Mets.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (31-29)

COLUMBIA 4, AUGUSTA 0 (BOX)

With the Colaflies losing David Peterson to promotion, the team will be taking a pretty big blow, but a healthy Chris Viall will help minimize that loss. The big right-hander looked a bit better in his second start since returning from the DL, tossing five plus innings of scoreless ball. The offense, meanwhile, looked strong, knocking in a run in the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh.
