Catch up on all the Mets prospects in yesterday’s minor league action!

Chris McShane

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (7-7)

NO GAME (Schedule)

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (5-4)

BINGHAMTON 7, ERIE 5 (Box)

The ball was flying tonight in Erie, as the two teams combined for five home runs in the Binghamton win. The Rumble Ponies got to former first round pick Alex Faedo early, as Sam Haggerty led off the game with a home run, and Will Toffey added a two-run shot later in the inning. Home runs by Braxton Lee and Andres Gimenez added to the Binghamton lead in the second inning. Harol Gonzalez had a very solid start, holding the SeaWolves to just three runs over six innings. His worst inning came in the fourth, where he was victimized by two solo home runs.

The bullpen was a little adventurous. Joshua Torres gave up a two run double in the eighth to make things interesting, but he finished the inning well. Stephen Villines gave up two singles to open up the ninth, but buckled down to get his third save of the young season.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (8-7)

PALM BEACH 8, ST. LUCIE 4 (Box)

The St. Lucie offense was pretty non-existent in this game, as three of their four runs came on one swing. Nick Meyer hit a three-run homer in the top of the fifth, tying the game at three. They were held scoreless until a Quinn Brodey single in the eighth.

Marcel Renteria was the lone bright spot on the pitching side, as he threw scoreless innings to finish the game. Tommy Wilson and Carlos Hernandez struggled mightily, and put the St. Lucie offense in a nearly impossible situation.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (7-7)

COLUMBIA 4, HICKORY 3 (Box)

Columbia struck first in this game, putting two runs on the board in the bottom of the first. Ronny Mauricio scored via a passed ball, and a Mark Vientos sacrifice fly added the second run of the inning. Christian James would give those two runs back and more in the top of the second inning, as two run-scoring doubles gave Hickory a 3-2 lead. Both pitching staffs would match zeros until the bottom of the ninth.

Wagner Lagrange got the rally started with a two-out single, followed by another single from Anthony Dirocie. A Bradley Marquez single would tie the game at three. Walter Rasquin came to the plate following a wild pitch and a Ronny Mauricio intentional walk. Walter Rasquin would deliver the game-winning hit, a single, to complete the two-out comeback win.
