Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (40-45)


It was a PCL special in Las Vegas, as the 51s lost 14-12 to Salt Lake. The Bees started things off with a bang, scoring five runs in the top of the first off starter Cody Martin. The 51s clawed their way back, however, starting with a solo shot from Tyler McNeil in the bottom of the first and culminating in a two-run home run from Zach Borenstein in the eighth that tied the game at 12. Jacob Rhame allowed three hits, including a home run, in the ninth to wipe out that effort, and the 51s couldn’t pull things back in the final frame.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Joshua Torres assigned to Las Vegas 51s from Binghamton Rumble Ponies

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Nabil Crismatt assigned to Las Vegas 51s from Binghamton Rumble Ponies

ROSTER ALERT: Las Vegas 51s place RHP Josh Prevost on the 7-day DL

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (40-42)


Justin Dunn came out on top in a pitcher’s duel, beating Portland 2-1. Dunn tossed 7.2 innings of one run ball, striking out nine and walking two, allowing only two hits to lower his ERA on the season to 2.41. Corey Taylor and Daniel Zamora preserved the one run lead from there. Kevin Taylor and Tomas Nido came through with RBIs for the Rumble Ponies, while Levi MIchael and Joey Terdoslavich each recorded a two hit day.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP MIchael Gibbons assigned to Binghamton from St. Lucie Mets

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 5-6)


Michael Paez was the ‘hero’ for St. Lucie in a 3-1, eleven inning win. Daytona struck first, scoring in the top of the fifth on a pair of doubles against Gabriel Llanes. St. Lucie tied things up in the eighth on a solo home run from Dan Rizzie, however, and we went to extras. In the top of the eleventh, Gene Cone started the inning at second base (still a terrible rule) and Andres Gimenez walked. Michael Paez came up to sacrifice, and pitcher Nick Howard threw the ball away to allow two runs to score. Paez came around himself on an RBI single from Wuilmer Becerra.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 7-5)


Quinn Brodey’s eighth inning home run was the difference in a 2-1 win for the Fireflies. Matt Winaker went deep in the game’s first frame, but starter Chris Viall promptly gave that run back. That was all Viall would give up in a five inning, ten strikeout start, but the Fireflies’ offense was dim for the next six innings. On the night, they managed only five hits and left eight men on base. Brodey’s blast was enough, however, and Carlos Hernandez closed it out with a two inning save.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Ronald Sanchez assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Brooklyn Cyclones

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (11-7)


It was a game to forget for the Cyclones, as they managed only four hits in a 5-1 loss to the Yankees. Brian Sharp generate the only run for the Cycloens with a solo home run in the third, which gave Brooklyn a 1-0 lead. The rest of the lineup combined to go 3-28, and Joel Huertas allowed five runs in two innings of work, allowing two runs and recording no outs in the sixth after giving up two runs in the fourth and another in the fifth. That spoiled a solid start for Kevin Smith, who struck out five over three innings and departed with a 1-0 lead.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (8-5)


It was a rough game for Kingsport, who fell 5-2 against Pulaski. The 1-through-5 hitters for Kingsport combined for zero hits, with the only runs cominb on a sacrifice fly from Kenny Hernandez and a solo home run from Raul Beracierta. On the pitching side, Daison Acosta had a solid start, striking out six in three shutout innings. Joshua Walker was also solid, striking out four over three scoreless innings of his own. Liam McCall and Nelson Leon let the two run lead slip away, allowing five runs in the final three innings.

Rookie - GCL Mets (8-5)


Walter Rasquin led the GCL Mets to a 5-1 victory over the Astros with a three-hit performance. Rasquin had a triple and two singles, good for two RBI, and Jarraed Kelenic added a triple and two runs of his own. That was more than enough support for Ramon Guzman and Ronnie Taylor Jr., who combined to allow only one run despite striking out only five batters between them. Ronny Mauricio went 1-for-5 but also committed his fifth erro of the season.
