Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners) 5, Las Vegas 51’s 3 (25-29) Box Score
- CF Brandon Nimmo 0 for 4, 4 K .220/.361/.390
- SS Amed Rosario 1 for 4, .337/.379/.494
- 1B Dominic Smith 0 for 4 .315/.364/.465
Yeesh, Nimmo. Rosario is hitting .244/.306/.378 in 11 games in June. Dominic is hitting.
This was Montero’s worst start at Triple-A this year. Regnault is someone to watch as a lefty out of the pen.
Binghamton Rumble Ponies 4 (34-23), Harrisburg Senators 3 (Nationals) F/11 Box Score
- SS-2B Luis Guillorme 1 for 4, BB, K .285/.342/.327
- RF Kevin Kaczmarski 1 for 3, 2B, 2 BB, CS .299/.395/.390
- C Tomas Nido 2 for 4, 2B, RBI, BB .280/.326/.460
Nido has not struck out since May 21st. That is incredible. Kaczmarski has been on fire, hitting .344/.450/.438 in June.
Taylor has improved month by month, and seems to be getting better.
Lakeland Flying Tigers 1 (Tigers), St. Lucie Mets 0 (30-31) Box Score
- CF John Mora 2 for 4 .244/.305/.345
- 1B Jhoan Urena 0 for 3, BB, K .315/.407/.450
- LF Wuilmer Becerra 1 for 4, 2 K .265/.324/.361
Mora is surprisingly not doing too well this year, nor getting on base as well. Urena is. Becerra has struck out 67 times in 57 games. Mazeika is getting on base at a great rate (.382) but is hitting only .250 in June so far.
- RHP Marcos Molina 7.2 IP, 3 H, ER, BB, 8 K 1.26 ERA
I wonder when they will move Molina up to Double-A. Binghamton could use a couple more pitching prospects.
Columbia Fireflies 3 (36-25), Charleston Riverdogs 2 (Yankees) Box Score
- CF Gene Cone 1 for 4, CS .249/.361/.309
- SS Andres Gimenez 1 for 4 .262/.328/.369
- 3B Michael Paez 1 for 3, 2K, E .291/.386/.503
Cone has been great in the leadoff spot. Gimenez’s stats may not be too sexy, but that’s an 18 year old at Short. Paez has had a fantastic year so far and should be promoted after the All-Star Break.
- RHP Gabriel Llanes 8.2 IP 6 H, 2 ER, BB, K 2.93 ERA
I need an updated scouting report on Llanes. Uceta just got one and now throws in the mid-90’s.
