AAA - Las Vegas (6-5) 10 - Fresno (7-4) 5
LF Brandon Allen - 1-3, 1-R, 1-HR (2), 2-RBI, .320
DH Matt Reynolds - 3-5, 1-R, 4-RBI, .348
2B Dilson Herrera - 2-5, 1-R, 2-RBI, .333
Mack - the 21-year old Herrera seems to be settling in very nicely into AAA ball
LHP Steven Matz - 5.0-IP, 3-H, 1-R, 5-K, 3-BB, 2.93
Mack - worked the back end of a piggy with Montero...
RHSP Rafael Montero - 2.2-IP, 2-H, 1-ER, 3-K, 1-BB, 3.38, 50-pitches
Mack - Montero was on a strict 50 pitch count, thus, he was pulled with two outs in the third when he hit 50.
AA - Harrisburg (5-6) 10 - Binghamton (6-5) 2
SS Josh Rodriguez - 3-4, 1-RBI, .357
RHRP Beck Wheeler - 1.1-IP, 0-H, 0-R, 2-K, 1-BB, 4.26
LHRP Dario Alvarez - 1.0-IP, 2-H, 4-R, 3-K, 2-BB, 9.00
Mack - Alvarez has had a very unimpressive 'start' in AA relief ball this spring...
RHSP John Gant - 5.2-IP, 6-H, 3-R, 4-K, 3-BB, 7.71
Mack - So far this young season, Gant has not been successful making the jump from Savannah (2014: 11-5, 2.56) directly to Binghamton. AA baseball is tough enough for pitchers, no less ones that don't throw a single ball at the A+ level.
A+ - Ft. Myers (5-6) 3 - St. Lucie (6-5) 2

Mack - the 24-year old is playing two levels below where he should be...
LF Michael Conforto - 3-5, 1-R, 1-HR (4), 1-RBI, .366
Mack - text from scout to Adam Rubin: "Conforto just hit another bomb. Get him out of this league. The kid has been incredible."
A - Savannah - game was suspended after 6.5 innings due to rain
RHSP Josh Prevost - 5.1-IP, 8-H, 5-R, 7-K, 1-BB, 7.15
