Las Vegas 51s (54-86) 7, Tacoma Rainiers (66-74) 6 Box Score

Urena hit a walk-off blast in the ninth after the 51s blew a 6-5 lead. It was Urena’s second homer in three days. McNeil is starting to heat up after an adjustment to Vegas. He is making a case for being protected on the 40-man roster this offseason.

Mateo had been very sharp as a starter prior to this outing, perhaps he hit a wall in this one. McGowan gave up the tying home run in the ninth but ultimately got the win thanks to Jhoan Urena.

Binghamton Rumble Ponies (84-54) 1, Hartford Yard Goats (62-76) 0 Box Score

Thompson hit .295/.344/.554 in the month of August and has carried that into September. Hopefully he saves some for the playoffs.

Knapp has been dominant since returning to Binghamton. Corey Taylor does not have his high ground ball rate he usually generates with his sinker but he still has good results.

St. Lucie Mets (62-75) 4, Palm Beach Cardinals (74-59) 3 Box Score

St. Lucie managed to win the game despite going 3 for 18 with runners in scoring position.

Bautista has 20 strikeouts in 14.1 innings and more importantly, just three walks.

Rome Braves (72-65) 10, Columbia Fireflies (68-68) 0 Box Score

The Fireflies had no offense in this one. They had their share of hits and baserunners but did not allot themselves many chances with runners in scoring position.

Medina was very good before this start. The 21-year-old has made a lot of strides this season.

Brooklyn Cyclones (23-48) 1, Lowell Spinners (31-39) 0 Box Score F/5

Lagrange is hitting .318/.400/.318 for the Cyclones. It has been a positive year for him and hopefully he continues this into 2018.

Peterson missed the last few starts with a foot issue. He is likely headed to St. Lucie at the start of 2018 and the Mets hope he will rise quickly. Johnson finished up the game largely due to the poor weather.
