Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (6-5)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (4-2)

BINGHAMTON 4, NEW HAMPSHIRE 1 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies bounced back from an early hole to top the Fisher Cats 4-1. Michael Gibbons allowed a run in the first, but Binghamton’s pitching was excellent thereafter, combining for 15 strikeouts. Sam Haggerty (one of the pieces of the Kevin Plawecki trade) tied the game in the third with an RBI single, and Patrick Mazeika followed with a two-run double that put the Mets in front for good. Stephen Villines showed again that he’s good for Double-A, striking out three in two perfect innings to earn the save.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (7-5)

FORT MYERS 7, ST. LUCIE 3 (BOX)

It was a day to forget for St. Lucie pitching, as they allowed 15 hits in a 7-3 loss. Left-hander Kevin Smith got the start and was the worst culprit, allowing eleven hits in 4.1 innings. He limited the damage to three runs, but Conner O’Neil allowed another run in relief and Blake Taylor gave up three more in the ninth. That was too much for the St. Lucie offense to overcome, despite the presence of the rehabbing Todd Frazier. The Mets scored three runs in the seventh and were quiet before and after on offense.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (5-6)

COLUMBIA 3, ROME 2 (BOX)

Anthony Dirocie was the hero for Columbia in a 3-2 win over Rome. Simeon Woods-Richardson got the start and was excellent through three innings, striking out five. In the fourth, the Mets took a 1-0 lead, but Willy Taveras immediately allowed Rome to score twice in the bottom half. The Fireflies were in that one run hole until the seventh, when Dirocie drove in Wagner Lagrange with a double to tie the game. Not satisfied with that, Dirocie came up again the ninth and homered to give the Fireflies the lead. Andrew Mitchell locked down the save in the bottom half of the frame, while the most notable prospects on the team - Ronny Mauricio and Mark Vientos - went a combined 1-for-9.
