Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (30-42)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (34-36)

TRENTON 16, BINGHAMTON 5 (Box)

It must have a been a tough night for any Rumble Pony fans in attendance in Trenton last night, as the Thunder put up crooked numbers in each of the first four innings, grabbing a rather secure 14-0 lead after four. Almost all of the damage came against Marcos Molina, whose struggles in AA reached new heights as he was strafed to the tune of 13 earned runs. The Ponies put up four in the top of the fifth to make the score look slightly less embarrassing.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40)

DUNEDIN 5, ST. LUCIE 4 / 11 INNINGS (Box)

The Mets dropped an exciting back-and-forth affair in Dunedin against the Blue Jays yesterday. The Jays struck first on an Eduard Pinto three-run home run in the bottom of the third, but the Mets matched that in the top of the fourth with three of their own. The game remained knotted into the eighth, where the Mets poked ahead when Desmond Lindsay led off with a double and came around on a Dash Winningham single. Joseph Zanghi almost wriggled out of a jam in the bottom of the frame, coming on with two on and none out to retire the first two batters, but the tying run came around on an infield single off of Luis Carpio’s glove. Dunedin was then the first to get their free runner home from second in the bottom of the eleventh to end the game.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33)

No Game (ALL STAR BREAK)

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (4-2)

HUDSON VALLEY 8, BROOKLYN 7 / 10 INNINGS (Box)

It would be hard not to described this game down the road from the Cyclone itself as without any roller coaster analogies given the number of ties and lead changes. The Renegades scored two in the first and two in the fourth, but the Cyclones answered with two of their own each time. After a Brooklyn run in the fifth, in the top of the sixth it was Hudson Valley’s turn to tie the game back up. A Jose Brizuela homer (his second in as many days) put Brooklyn right back up 6-5. They increase it to 7-5, but Ronald Sanchez couldn’t hold it, surrendering a walk followed by a two-run home run in the top of the ninth. After the Cyclones wasted a Dionis Paulino lead-off double in the ninth, the Renegades cashed in their free runner at second while the Cyclones could not, and that was the ballgame.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (2-0)

KINGSPORT 8, PRINCETON 0 (Box)

This was a pitcher’s duel early, as Rays starter Cristopher Sanchez matched Jose Butto in zeroes through the first six. The game actually remained scoreless into the bottom of the eighth, where the Mets erupted, sending 12 batters to the plate in scoring all eight of their runs. Mark Vientos drove in the first run of the inning with a sharp RBI single, driving in Shervyen Newton, who enjoyed the rare and glorious two-hit inning.

Rookie: GCL Mets (2-1)

GCL METS 9, GCL NATIONALS 3 (Box)

The Nationals poked ahead 3-2 in the top of the fifth, but it was all Mets thereafter. Ronny Mauricio tied the game at 3 in the fifth with a clutch RBI double, coming around to score the eventual winning run on a bases-loaded walk. Mauricio would add RBIs in each of his next two at bats on a single in the sixth and a sacrifice fly in the eighth, while Ramon Guzman sailed through the last four innings, striking out five for the victory.
