Triple-A: Las Vegas 51s (68-68)
LAS VEGAS 8, TACOMA 6 (Box)
Las Vegas plated seven of their eight runs in the first four innings last night. Peter Alonso started the scoring, plating Jack Reinheimer with an RBI single. Tacoma chased a run home in the second inning, though it could have been much worse, as Kevin McGowan wriggled out of a bases-loaded, no out situation, in the inning.
The big inning came in the bottom of the third, as the 51s plated four runs in the frame. Colton Plaia led off the inning with his eighth home run of the season, and Dominic Smith added the second run of the inning with an RBI single. Patrick Kivlehan capped off the inning with a two run home run (his third in three games) making their lead 5-1.
The Rainiers chased a run home in the fourth, but a Luis Guillorme double and a Plaia single gave the 51s a 7-2 lead. The Las Vegas pitching was good enough to hold off Tacoma, starting with McGowan. He pitched well after getting out of a bases-loaded jam in the second, though a Cameron Rupp home run in the fifth made it 7-4. Tacoma inched closer, as they scored a run on a sacrifice fly off of Eric Hanhold, making it 7-5. Guillorme would chase an insurance run home in the eighth with a double play, pushing their lead to 8-5.
Eric Hanhold would give up his second run in the ninth inning on a passed ball by Plaia. Kyle Regnault came in relief to secure the save.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (63-73)
HARTFORD 1, BINGHAMTON 0 (Box)
Starter Nabil Crismatt received the full Jacob deGrom treatment from his teammates. He was excellent, tossing 6.2 no-hit innings before finally surrendering a single in the seventh. He did not get out of the eighth inning, but that has a lot to do with his defense, with the sole run of the game scoring on an error by Joey Terdoslavich. Crismatt came out after that, and ended up being a hard-luck loser.
The Binghamton offense was nonexistent, as they managed just three hits and one walk in the loss.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-40/26-35)
CANCELLED (UNPLAYABLE FIELD CONDITIONS) (Schedule)
St. Lucie and Lakeland managed to get their doubleheader cancelled again, making it five straight cancelled games for the two teams. They managed to lose the entire five-game series due to various weather issues. The Mets are playing at Jupiter tomorrow.
Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (34-33/28-34)
COLUMBIA 7, CHARLESTON 3 (Box)
Starter Marcel Renteria had one iffy inning in what was a very good outing overall. He gave up all three of his runs in the second inning, by way of an RBI double, and a two RBI single. Outside of that, Renteria was excellent.
The Fireflies did their bulk of their scoring in one inning as well, as they chased five home in the bottom of the third. Dionis Paulino got the scoring started with an RBI single, and Hansel Moreno added a single of his own to score the second run of the inning. A David Miranda ground-out plated the third run of the inning, and Matt Winaker capped it off with a two-run home run. The other two runs of the 7-3 win came on a pair of solo shots, with Moreno leading the game off with one, and Zach Rhames finishing off the scoring in the fifth with the other.
- 2B Hansel Moreno: 2-4, 2 R, HR (8), 2 RBI, SB

SS-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (38-33)
HUDSON VALLEY 4. BROOKLYN 2 (Box)
This loss will be a tough one to swallow for Brooklyn, as they gave up a 2-0 lead in the midst of a playoff race. Hayden Senger was involved in each of the two runs, chasing the first home on a double play in the bottom of the second, and driving in the second with a single in the fourth.
Christian James tossed five scoreless frames to open the game, but fell apart in the sixth. A lead-off walk, a single, and back-to-back doubles turned a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 deficit, and ended James’ night. The fourth Renegades run came due to a Senger throwing error on a steal of third base.
The Cyclones still lead the Wild Card despite the loss, though their lead over the Auburn Doubledays dropped to a half game. The Renegades gave themselves a little more breathing room in the division, pushing their lead to four games over Brooklyn.

The regular season is over for Kingsport, but the playoffs begin Friday, when they face off at home against the Elizabethan Twins.
Kingsport limped to the finish line, dropping five of their last six to close the book on the regular season, but they can erase all of that in the Appalachian League West Divisional Series playoff against the Twins.
