*All results from games played on April 17, 2019

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (7-7)


A late combeback was wasted by the Syracuse bullpen in a 5-4 loss to Rochester. Chris Mazza gave up two runs in both the fourth and fifth innings, putting Syracuse in a four run hole. Home runs from Travis Taijeron and David Thompso, as well as an RBI from Adeiny Hechavarria, got the Mets back into it however, and the game headed to the bottom of the eight tied at four. Eric Hanhold couldn’t keep the game going, unfortunately, as he allwoed a run in the bottom of the eight and the Met offense went down quietly in the top of the ninth.

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


The Rumble Ponies bullpen imploded in a 10-4 loss to the Fisher Cats. David Peterson didn’t have a great start, but he was hurt by three errors that led to three unearned runs that marred his final line. The Binghamton offense kept the game close, scoring four runs in early and heading to the late innings down only one. Zack Jones imploded in the eighth to change that, failing to record an out in the inning and being charged with four runs on a hit and three walks. By the time Matt Blackham and put out the fire (though he also gave up a run) the game was out of reach.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (8-6)


The rehabbing Todd Frazier went deep and led St. Lucie to a 7-2 win. Frazier walked twice and launched a three-run home run, demonstrating he’s just about ready to return to the major league team. Desmond Lindsay also went deep, but struck out three times. All seven runs came in the fourth inning for St, Lucie, which allowed Yeizo Campos and Briam Campusano to cruise through four innings of relief to close out the game.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (6-7)


Ronny Mauricio had a day to remember, leading Columbia to a 2-1 win over Rome. Mauricio had four hits, including a triple and two opposite field single, and is now batting a robust .386 on the season as his prospect stock continues to rise. Mauricio’s big day supported a solid pitching performance from Jaison Vilera and a trio of relievers, who allowed only five hits to the Rome Braves.
