Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (40-46)

FRESNO 5, LAS VEGAS 0 (Box)

Vegas dropped this one to the PCL Northern Division leaders in Fresno, 5-0. The 51s managed only four hits throughout. They had an opening in the top of the fifth, when it was still a 1-0 game, and Cody Asche led off with a double. Ezequiel Carrera ripped a liner that was snared by shortstop Jack Mayfield and turned into a double play. Vegas never really threatened thereafter, and Fresno got to a struggling Gerson Bautista to put the close game out of reach.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (41-42)

BINGHAMTON 7, ERIE 5 (Box)

The Rumble Ponies rode the power of a five run bottom of the fourth inning to victory against Erie yesterday. Down 3-1 entering the frame, Binghamton took advantage of the wildness of Erie starter Sean Burrows, mixing four singles around three walks to take the 6-3 lead. Starter Mickey Jannis was the beneficiary of the outburst—he struggled to complete five, but recorded the victory as David Roseboom, Matt Blackham, and Corey Taylor provided four innings of spotless relief to secure the victory.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed RHP Marcos Molina on the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated C Jose Garcia from the 7-day disabled list.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (28-40 / 6-6)

ST. LUCIE 3, BRADENTON 2 (Box)

Anthony Kay made his advanced A debut an impressive one, twirling his second straight excellent start, following up an 11 strikeout effort in his Colafly finale with 7.1 solid innings in leading the Mets to their third straight victory. St. Lucie took the lead in the fourth on a Michael Paez RBI double and a Dash Winningham RBI single, but Bradenton answered right back with two in the top of the fifth. The Mets poked back ahead in the bottom of the seventh on a Gene Cone RBI ground-rule double—a bit of bad luck there, as Luis Carpio would have likely scored as well. Kay tired in the eighth, leaving with the bases loaded and one out—Austin McGeorge came in to record a pop out and a strikeout to escape the jam, and completed the ninth for the well-earned save.

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

GREENVILLE 4, COLUMBIA 2 (Box)

The Colaflies jumped out to an early lead, moving ahead 2-1 after three. Drive starter Denyi Reyes settled down thereafter, allowing only two more hits to Columbia the rest of the way. Greenville got to Colafly starter Nicolas Debora for two runs in the fifth to move ahead for good, and Colmbia went quietly the rest of the way.

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (11-8)

ABERDEEN 7, BROOKLYN 1 (Box)

There were fireworks in Coney Island last night, but they were not supplied by the Cyclones offense. Brooklyn actually jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in this one when Ross Adolph led off the second with a walk and came around to score on a David Miranda single, but that was all they would muster on the night. Aberdeen answered right back in the top of the third on a Doran Turchin two-run home run, extended the lead with two more in the sixt, and salted it away with three in the ninth.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (8-6)Marbin Montijo

ELIZABETHTON 4, KINGSPORT 3 (Box)

The Twins eventually walked off the Mets last night in a back and forth affair. Elizabethton went ahead in the bottom of the sixth, but Kingsport answered right back to tie it in the seventh, and let a golden opportunity to take the lead slip away when Mark Vientos lined out to right with right to leave the bases loaded. Marbin Montijo came on in the bottom of the ninth and absorbed the loss, his third of the young season.

Rookie - GCL Mets (8-6)

GCL METS 14, GCL MARLINS 9 (Box)

The GCL Mets exploded for eight in the bottom of the fifth—a Walter Rasquin grand slam being the big blow—to take a 10-0 lead after five. Some shaky relief from Marcos Correa allowed the Marlins to make things vaguely interesting in the ninth, but Boris Sanchez came on to record the last two outs and secure the victory.
