ALBUQUERQUE 3, LAS VEGAS 0; LAS VEGAS 3, ALBUQUERQUE 1: Jon Gray and Rex Brothers combined on a three-hit shutout of the 51s in Game 1 of the doubleheader. Matt Bowman (5-10) had a seven-inning complete game in the loss. He allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk. In Game 2, Alex Castellanos had a two-run homer in a three-run third against Jair Jurrjens. Darin Gorski allowed one unearned run in six innings. Box 1, Box 2

BINGHAMTON 7, NEW BRITAIN 0: Seth Lugo allowed two hits in six scoreless innings to earn his first win in 10 starts. Gavin Cecchini and Brandon Nimmo each had three hits, while Xorge Carrillo had a solo homer and double and drove in the game's opening two runs. Jared King followed Carrillo's double with a two-run double one batter later for a 4-0 lead. Matt Koch and Akeel Morris completed the shutout. Box

CHARLOTTE 5, ST. LUCIE 3: Jeff Ames struck out Champ Stuart and got Jeff McNeil to pop out to end the game with the tying run at second base as St. Lucie lost its fourth straight game. The Crabs broke a 3-all tie in the eighth on Keon Wong's sacrifice fly against starter Logan Taylor (2-7). Charlotte opened a two-run lead on Jace Conrad's ninth-inning sacrifice fly against Jeff Walters. Walters, working back from Tommy John surgery, was added to the roster before the game. Taylor required only 86 pitches to complete eight innings. Two of the four runs charged to him were unearned. The Mets took a 1-0 lead on Stuart's leadoff homer in the first. The Stone Crabs answered with three runs in the third. After Charlotte loaded the bases with none out, Wong delivered a sacrifice fly. Jairo Perez cut off the throw home and threw wildly to third base. The errant toss allowed the Crabs' other two baserunners to score. The Mets tied the score at 3 in the fourth. Perez singled. On Dominic Smith's ensuing hit, Braxton Lee’s throw to third base attempting to retire Perez sailed into the camera well. Perez was awarded home and Smith went to third. Smith then scored on Brent Honeywell's wild pitch. Taylor retired 12 in a row at one point, but that ended on a leadoff single by Granden Goetzman in the eighth. He eventually scored the decisive run. Box

GREENVILLE 7, SAVANNAH 5: Patrick Biondi tripled and scored on Jonathan Johnson's single in the top of the sixth as Savannah took a 5-4 lead. However, Alberto Baldonado and Cameron Griffin surrendered consecutive RBI doubles in the bottom half as Greenville took the lead. The Gnats walked eight times but mustered only three hits in the loss. Box

KINGSPORT 6, GREENEVILLE 4: Luis Carpio went 3-for-5 with a double and four RBIs and Luis Ortega drove in two runs as the K-Mets built a 6-0 lead. Box
