It was a perfect night on the farm, with plenty of offense and a little bit of pitching as well. Let’s take a look:
Las Vegas 8, Nashville 7
One day after the death of his college coach, Tony Gwynn, Cory Vaughn delivered a walk-off hit to give the 51s the win. Vaughn, Brandon Allen, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Danny Muno, and Travis d’Arnaud all had 2 hits. Muno and Allen both homered. Nieuwenhuis, d’Arnaud, and Cesar Puello all doubled. Joel Carreno started and let up 3 runs over 6 innings while striking out 8.
Binghamton 5, Richmond 1
Matthew Bowman threw 6 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4. Jack Leathersich gave up a run on 2 hits in the 9th, but managed to not walk anybody. Brian Burgamy was 2 for 3 with a double and a grand slam. Matt Reynolds was 2 for 4 and Dustin Lawley doubled twice.
St. Lucie 10, Charlotte 5
Luis Cessa was knocked out after 1.2 innings, giving up 3 runs on 5 hits, but Seth Lugo came in and threw 5.1 strong innings, giving up 2 runs and striking out 7. Julian Hilario added 2 shutout innings to close out the game. Yeixon Ruiz was 4 for 5 with a double and 2 RBI’s. Dilson Herrera was 2 for 5 with a double and RBI. Jairo Perez, Cam Maron, and Eudy Pina also had 2 hits each. Brandon Nimmo was 0 for 3 with a walk and run scored. Unfortunately, Fort Myers also won, so St. Lucie remains half a game back with 1 game left to play, meaning St. Lucie needs to win tonight and have Fort Myers lose in order to win the FSL South division and clinch a playoff birth.
Brooklyn 5, Hudson Valley 1
Corey Oswalt threw 6 shutout innings, allowing 3 hits and no walks while striking out 8. Scarlyn Reyes allowed 1 unearned run over the final 3 innings, striking out 4. Michael Katz was 2 for 4 with a triple and 2 RBI’s. Joe Tuschak homered and drove in 2 runs. Amed Rosario was 1 for 3 with a walk.
