Minors 5.19.16: Roger Bernadina's arm preserves Vegas win

LAS VEGAS 7, COLORADO SPRINGS 6: Travis Taijeron had a three-run homer and Ty Kelly also went deep as Las Vegas knocked out Taylor Jungmann in a six-run first inning. The 51s ultimately held on for a one-run win as left fielder Roger Bernadina threw out a runner at the plate in the bottom of the ninth. Reigning Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Week Rafael Montero, coming off consecutive scoreless performances, allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks in five innings. He threw 93 pitches. T.J. Rivera went 4-for-5 with a triple, two RBIs and a run scored in the victory. Box

BINGHAMTON 5, ALTOONA 4: Trailing 3-2 in the seventh, Xorge Carrillo singled and moved to second on Victor Cruzado's pinch-hit single. Derrik Gibson walked to load the bases. Jhondaniel Medina then walked Kyle Johnson, forcing in Carrillo to tie the score. With Matt Oberste batting, Medina delivered a wild pitch and Cruzado broke from third. Catcher Reese McGuire tracked down the ball and threw behind the covering Medina for an error that allowed Gibson to score, which gave Binghamton a 5-3 advantage. Altoona made it interesting in the ninth as Erich Weiss singled home Chris Diaz to cut the B-Mets' lead to one run. But with runners on the corners and one out, Beck Wheeler struck out Austin Meadows and Jose Osuna to end the game. Wheeler earned his third save with five strikeouts and one run allowed over two innings. Carrillo went 3-for-3 with a double, a run scored and a walk to lead the B-Mets. Box

CLEARWATER at ST. LUCIE (canceled)

CHARLESTON 1, COLUMBIA 0: Columbia starter Kevin Canelon and Charleston counterpart Nestor Cortes had dominating outings, but it was the RiverDogs who came out on top. Canelon scattered four hits in arguably his most effective start of the season, but he surrendered the game's only run in the fifth inning. Kyle Holder doubled to open that frame. Three batters later, Leonardo Molina delivered an RBI single. Canelon allowed one run on four hits and a walk in six innings. He has posted a 2.25 ERA in his last four starts. Cortes struck out 12 and combined with two relievers on a four-hit shutout. Jose Garcia went 2-for-3 in the loss. Box
