Double-A - Binghamton Mets (16-21)____________________________


The Mets lost the second game of the series to the Curve and have now lost 10 of their last 12 games. The game was tied at 1 until Altoona scored four times in the top of the sixth inning to open up a 5-1 lead. The Mets could only muster four hits in the game. Their lone run came in the fourth when Dom Smith led off the inning with a walk, moved to third base on a Xorge Carrillo single and scored on Victor Cruzado's sac fly. In 18 innings in the series, the Mets have scored just two runs.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (21-18)______________________________



Ricky Knapp was terrific, as he tossed a complete game shutout to lead St. Lucie to victory in game one of the doubleheader. The 23-year-old needed just 78 pitches to go the distance while scattering three hits and walking none, but he did hit two batters. Knapp has a 1.96 ERA in 41.1 innings. The Mets got the scoring started in the first inning when Champ Stuart led off the inning with a double and came around to score on Amed Rosario's base hit. The Threshers had the bases loaded with two outs in the seventh, but Knapp wiggled out of the jam.



Clearwater jumped on starter Scarlyn Reyes for a two-run home run in the first inning to take a quick 2-0 lead. Champ Stuart led off the bottom half of the first with his third home run of the year to cut the lead to 2-1 but that was all the Mets would muster off Threshers starter Ranfi Casimiro. Reyes had a messy second inning, during which he walked two batters and threw a wild pitch, which helped Clearwater extend their lead to 4-1. With a hit in each game of the doubleheader, Champ Stuart now has a 10-game hitting streak.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (20-19)______________________________


Despite four Firefly players collecting two-hit games, Columbia dropped the series finale to Rome. Kevin Kaczmarski, David Thompson, Joe Tuschak and Vincente Lupo combined to reach base 10 times. Starter Thomas McIIraith was not effective, as he only recorded four outs in the start, yielding six runs on seven hits. Columbia's bats came alive in the third inning when David Thompson chased Vincente Lupo home on a double. The Fireflies would score again in the fourth inning and trailed 6-2 after five. The lead was cut to 6-3 in the sixth but three runs is as close as the Fireflies would get in this one.
