Last night on the farm, two teams were victims of walk-off wins, while one was victorious in walk-off style.  We also update the playoff hopes of several postseason contenders:

Jacob deGrom gave up 6 runs on 7 hits in 5 plus innings, walking 2 and striking out 4.  D.J. Mitchell pitched the final 2 innings and got the win when Eric Campbell singled home the game-winning run.  Campbell was 3 for 5 with a double.  Brandon Hicks was 2 for 3 with a double and 4 RBI’s.  Lucas Duda was 2 for 5; he’s hitting .306 at AAA.  The 51s have won 6 in a row, have a 2 game lead in their division, and have a magic number of 10 with 12 games to play, including 6 in 4 days in Colorado Springs next week.
