Las Vegas 51s 8, El Paso Chihuahuas 7 Box Score

Cecchini is 11 for his last 27 and hit his 27th double of the season. Travis Taijeron hit his 23rd homer of the season, Victor Cruzado his 7th and Cody Decker blasted his 5th for Vegas.

Binghamton Rumble Ponies (68-46) 6, Akron RubberDucks (58-58) 1  Box Score

The Rumble Ponies scored six runs on nine hits in this game. Luis Guillorme reached base for a 30th straight game and now has a .377 OBP this season.

After getting knocked out of the game in the third inning in his last rehab start, Gsellman was much better in this game as he tossed six shutout innings. Smith gave up a solo home run in his lone inning of work.

Akron RubberDucks (59-58) 2, Binghamton Rumble Ponies (68-47) 1  Box Score

The Rumble Ponies were held to just one run in the second game of their doubleheader. Their only run came on a Mazzilli solo home run in the seventh inning.

  • RHP Marcos Molina (1-6, 4.09 ERA) 6.0 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K

Molina gave up just two runs in this game, but did struggle a bit with his command, as he walked more batters than he struck out. Molina has gone six innings in each of his four starts since returning from the disabled list in mid-July.

Tampa Yankees (71-46) 12, St. Lucie Mets (53-63) 5  Box Score

The Mets scored five runs on nine hits in this game. Every player in the starting lineup except for J.C. Rodriguez had at least one hit.

Hickory Crawdads (55-63) 15, Columbia Fireflies (59-56) 2  Box Score

The Fireflies were held to just two runs in this game. Strom has gotten off to an extremely hot start to August. He is hitting .368/.442/.632 in ten games this month.

Ingram made the start for the Fireflies and pitched very poorly. He threw less than half of his pitches for strikes and allowed ten baserunners in just two innings. Ryan made his first appearance since being traded for Jay Bruce. His first inning went well, but he allowed a three run home run in his second inning of work. Infielder, J.J. Franco, pitched 1.1 innings in the blowout.

Brooklyn Cyclones (15-34) vs. Hudson Valley Renegades (25-25)

  • RHP Bryce Hutchinson (0-0, 27.00 ERA) 0.2 IP, 3 H. 5 R. 2 ER. 2 BB.
