Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (65-68)

LAS VEGAS 4, SACRAMENTO 3 / 10 (BOX)

Eric Hanhold blew a ninth inning lead, but Matthew den Dekker came through with a sacrifice fly in the top of the tenth to get the win. Scott Copeland made a solid start, going 6.2 innings and allowing only one run, and Kyle Regnault added on another 1.1 innings of scoreless relief. On offense, Peter Alonso was the start, launching his 18th home run of the season in the sixth. Jacob Rhame got the save in the tenth inning.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (62-71)

BINGHAMTON 12, HARTFORD 2 (BOX)

Jhoan Urena popped off in a 12-2 Binghamton win. Urena hit three home runs, two of which were grand slams that carried rallies in the first and sixth. He added a solo shot in the third for good measure. Urena’s performance alone was enough to support Mickey Jannis, who tossed six shutout innings with five strikeouts and four walks. Matt Blackham allowed two runs in the eighth, but the Rumble Ponies had more than enough cushion. Andres Gimenez had a big, albeit not as insane day at the plate, going 3-for-6 with an RBI.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40 / 26-35)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33 / 26-33)

CHARLESTON 4, COLUMBIA 0 (BOX)

The Fireflies’ offense was non-existent, and they were shutout 4-0. Zach Rheams was the only hitter to show up in any significant way, tallying three of the four hits for Columbia. Nicolas Debora couldn’t overcome the stagnant offense either, giving up four runs in six innings, with most of the damage coming on a three-run home run in the third inning. The Fireflies struck out a whopping 13 times in the loss.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (36-32)

VERMONT 9, BROOKLYN 3 (BOX)

Brooklyn fell to five games back of the Hudson Valley Renegades with a 9-3 loss to Vermont. Ross Adolph did his best to keep the Cyclones in the hunt for first place in the division, going 3-for-5 with a home run. Adolph’s offensive performane asn’t enough to overcome an all around rough pitching performance, made worse by three errors that created three unearned runs. Jose Butto, Tommy Wilson, and Yeudy Colon all allowed multiple runs. Despite falling well back of the Renegades, the Cyclones remain a half game up on the Auburn Doubledays in the wild card race.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (33-33)

KINGSPORT 8, JOHNSON CITY 6 / 10 (BOX)

Kingsport exploded for 17 hits en route to an 8-6 win in ten innings over the Johnson City Cardinals. Four different Mets - Yoel Romero, Mark Vientos, Domingo Martinez, and Ranfy Adon - all had at least three hits, with Adon leading the offensive charge with three RBI. The pitching started out rough, as Dedniel Nunez and Brian Metoyer allowing three runs apiece. Christian Tripp and Mitch Hickey rallied and tossed three scoreless inning of relief to keep the Mets in it long enough to pull out the win.

The win locks up a playoff spot for Kingsport, but it’a also another game without Shervyen Newton and Jared Kelenic in the lineup, which is an odd, unexplained absence.

Rookie - GCL Mets (24-31)
