3 for 3 in the winners' column on Fathers Day.
Star of the day: Brooks Conrad
Honorable Mention: Casey Meisner
AAA - Las Vegas (40-31) 4 - Fresno (42-28) 2
Looking very NY Met-like (you know, utter impotence and futility) until the 9th, Vegas wrote a different script for its ending last night. Lara was shaky, but limited Fresno to 2 runs while pitching (5 IP, 4 H, 5 BB, 2 R). Entering the 9th it was 2-0, Fresno.
But with one out, Kirk (.429) doubled and Recker walked, Allen struck out, so 2 outs, Taijeron is then HBP.
WAS IT WORTH THE PAIN? YEAH! BROOK CONRAD HIT A COME- FROM- BEHIND 2 OUT GRAND SLAM.
Chase Bradford tossed 2 strong innings to pick up the win, keping Vegas on a roll.
Unlike the putrid Mets, there was excitement in this one.
AA - Binghamton - posponed due to rain

RHSP Casey Meisner - 5.0-IP, 3-H, 1-R, 6-K, 1-BB, 2.13
RF Wuilmer Beccera - 2-4, 1-R, double, 2-RBI, .289
LF Joe Tuschak - 2-5, 1-R, .182
Casey outstanding one again. A tale of 2 games. 3-2 entering the 9th, 8 more runs leading to the final score.
Another fine Becerra game, and Guillorme on base 3 more times. Luis has been on base 100 times in 63 games...impressive. And a sure-handed SS besides. Nice.
Low-A - Brooklyn (2-1) 6 - Staten Island (1-2) 4
RHSP Michael Gibbons - 5.2-IP, 2-H, 2-R, 6-K, 2-BB, 3.18
RF Michael Bernal - 2-4, 2-R, double, triple, 1-RBI, .308
DH Jeff Diehl - 2-4, 1-R, 1-HR (1), 2-RBI, .600
Gibbons follows up his inaugural starting gem with St Lucie with an excellent start today.
Nice start to the season for Bernal and Diehl, and for the Cyclones in winning the series from the Yank squad.
