AAA - Las Vegas - (3-3) 2 - Sacramento (4-2) 3
LHSP Steven Matz - 5 IP, 5 H, 5 BB, 5K, 3 R
1B Eric Campbell - 1-1, .550...coming home to play 3B
CF Darrell Ceciliani - 1-3, HR, .250. 2nd HR in 12 ABs
LHRP Jack Leathersich - 1 IP, perfect, 3 K, 0.00
Jack is telling Matz to work on his control. Jack had a terrible outing in early spring, great ever after. He is no longer walking anyone. In fact, in 2.2 innings, 1 hit, no walks, 7 Ks. Slightly impressive.
WOtherwise, Vegas 2015 is hitting nothing like the 2014 version, that came out of the gates with tremendous offense.
AA - Binghamton - split of a twin bill.
Game 1 - Binghamton (4-1) 7 - Erie (1-4) 6
RHSP John Gant - 3.2-IP, 7-H, 5-ER, 2-K, 2-BB, 12.27

CF Brandon Nimmo - 2-3, 1-R, 1-HR (2), 1-RBI, .174
Dario Alvarez allowed a come-from-behind 2 run shot in the final inning, costing the B Mets a DH sweep. Nice to see A Rod hit a slam, and Gavin has come strong out of the gate, jacking one out.
A+ - St. Lucie -
Brevard County (3-2) 1 - St. Lucie (3-3) 0
The young St Lucians have stopped hitting almost entirely the past 2 games. Vic Black allowed the lone run in a wild 2nd, obscuring a great 5 inning stint by Miller Makes It Right Diaz.
RHSP - Miller Diaz - 5.0-IP, 0-R, 2-H, 6-K, 3-BB, 0.00
RHRP Bobby Parnell - 1.0-IP, 2-H, 1-K, 0.00

LHRP Alberto Baldonado - 2.1-IP, 1-H, 0-R, 4-K, 3-BB, 0.00
The Gnats are also Gnat hitting at all, other than John Mora And Jon Leroux. Everyone on the team needs to change their name to John (Jon).
Underperformer du Jour - Dario Alvarez, almost all the hitters.
