Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (45-50)

SALT LAKE 10, LAS VEGAS 5 (BOX)

P.J. Conlon had a start to forget, getting boxed around in a 10-5 loss to Salt Lake. Conlon lasted only 4.2 innings, allowing ten hits and six walks en route to nine runs. That was enough to bury the 51s, who managed a respectable five runs of their own. Jeff McNeil had another impressive day at the dish, going 2-for-5 with a triple, while Peter Alonso continued to struggle with an 0-for-4 performance.

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s place LHP Buddy Bauman on the 7-day disabled list

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (44-48)

BINGHAMTON 16, PORTLAND 2 (BOX)

Binghamton romped all over Portland, topping the Sea Dogs 16-2. Justin Dunn made a solid start, striking out six over six innings and allowing eight hits and two runs. He was an afterthought in this game, however, as every Rumble Pony reached based at least once. Six of nine batters (nice) had multiple hits, headlined by a 4-for-5 performance from Joey Terdoslavich that featured a home run. Jhoan Urena had two doubles as part of his four hit day, and Tim Tebow managed a single in five at bats, and Tomas Nido finished a double short of the cycle.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 10-14)

FORT MYERS 7, ST. LUCIE 4 (BOX)

Fort Myers put St. Lucie in an early hole that the Mets couldn’t escape in a 7-4 loss. Joe Cavallaro was shelled for six runs in the first two innings, and only made it four innings in his start. Trey Cobb coughed up another run in the seventh, but that proved inconsequential. There weren’t any particularly remarkable performances from the St. Lucie offense, but they managed to push four runs across. Andres GImenez doubled and struck out three times in his first game back from the Future’s Game. Meanwhile, Stephen Villines logged 1.1 scoreless innings with two strikeouts, giving him a 0.63 ERA and a 17:3 K:BB in 14.1 innings for St. Lucie he needs to be promoted (again).

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 11-13)

GAME 1

COLUMBIA 2, LAKEWOOD 0 / 7 (BOX)

The first game of the day was a pitcher’s duel, and the Fireflies came out on top. Luc Rennie shut out the BlueClaws for the first 6.2 innings, and Carlos Hernandez recorded the final out. Zach Rheams provided the only offense for either side with a two-run home run in the top of the seventh that decided the game.

GAME 2

LAKEWOOD 12, COLUMBIA 6 / 7 (BOX)

Game 2 was a makeup of Sunday’s rain out, and it was anything but a pitcher’s duel. Chris Viall was boxed around, hurt by bad defense and worse control. He walked five in only four innings and gave up eight runs, three of which were unearned. Ronald Sanchez and Taylor Henry weren’t much better in relief, allowing four runs over their two combined innings of work. The Firefly offense was solid, with every hitter except Edgardo Fermin recording at least one hit, but they went 4-for-16 with RISP and fell well short of Lakewood’s 12 runs.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (16-14)

WILLIAMSPORT 4, BROOKLYN 2 (BOX)

Brooklyn’s offense was listless in a 4-2 loss to Williamsport. Briam Campusano danced around baserunners for six innings, allowing ten hits and a walk but surrendering only three runs. The only runs the Cyclones could put together came in the fifth on an RBI triple from Ross Adolph and a sacrifice fly from David Miranda.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (14-11)

KINGSPORT 14, ELIZABETHTON 4 (BOX)

Kingsport poured it on en route to a 14-4 win over Elizabethton. Daison Acosta gave up two runs in the top of the first, but the Mets responded with a two run second to tie and a six run explosion in the bottom of the third to take a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Shervyen Newton got things started in that six run rally with a solo home run, part of a 1-for-4 day with two walks. Jared Kelenic went hitless, but walked once and stole his third base since being promoted to the Appy. Yoel Romero had a unique performance as well, walking a whopping four times.

Rookie - GCL Mets (14-10)
