Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (26-35)


The 51s did a good job of battling back to win this one. Patrick Kivlehan three-run home run gave Las Vegas 3-1 lead in the bottom of the first, but starting pitcher Cody Martin could not hold the lead, He surrendered six runs (five earned) in five innings, including three in the fourth inning. The bullpen, however, put together a scoreless performance, holding the deficit at 6-3 until an Ezequiel Carrera double made it 6-4. A run-scoring wild pitch and a Kevin Kaczmarski sacrifice fly tied the game in the bottom of the ninth, and a Ty Kelly single drove in the winning run in the bottom of the tenth inning.

RHP Gerson Bautista: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, WP, W (1-0)

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s placed 2B Christian Colon on the temporarily inactive list.

ROSTER ALERT: SS Joey Wong assigned to Las Vegas 51s from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (33-26)


The Rumble Ponies offense did all of its work within the first two innings of this game. Jeff McNeil hit a home run in the first inning, continuing his excellent season. Back to back bases loaded walks to Mazeika and Alonso pushed the lead to 3-0, before Jhoan Urena drove in two on a single to give Scott Copeland a 5-0 cushion. That would prove to be more than enough, as Copeland spun five scoreless innings before giving up a two run single in the bottom of the sixth. Daniel Zamora gave up a run in the bottom of the seventh, but he shut the Senators down from there. Ryder Ryan continued his strong campaign as he notched his first save of the season.

RHP Ryder Ryan: 1.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K, WP, S (1)

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated 3B Nick Sergakis from the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: SS Joey Wong assigned to Las Vegas 51s from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (23-31)

TAMPA 4, ST. LUCIE 1 (Box)

St. Lucie fell to the Tarpons 4-1 for the second day in a row. Gabriel Llanes was not bad in the early portion of his start, as he gave up just two runs through the first five innings. The sixth inning was his kryptonite, however, as he gave up two runs and could not finish the frame before handing the ball of to the bullpen. The bullpen put together 2.2 scoreless innings, but the Mets offense was nowhere to be found. They scattered eight hits over nine innings, and were able to manufacture a run on an Anthony Dimino ground out in the top of the ninth before losing the game.

RHP Alex Palsha: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (28-29)


Joe Cavallaro was excellent in this one, but the Fireflies offense was mostly stifled, outside of one inning. Cavallaro gave up both of his runs in the second inning, one on a sacrifice fly, and the other on a single. Other than that, he was excellent, and kept the Fireflies in the game. They managed to tie it in the bottom of the fourth. The first run came on a balk by opposing starter Jio Orozco. The balk put Jeremy Vasquez in scoring position, and Wuilmer Becerra would drive him home to tie the game. Other than that, the Fireflies offense was shut down by the RiverDogs. Stephen Villines allowed the go-ahead run to score in the top of the eighth, giving the RiverDogs a 3-2 lead. A Blake Tiberi throwing error on a possible double-play — one that would have ended the inning — would give the RiverDogs a 4-2 lead, and that would be more than enough.

RHP Trey Cobb: 1.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
