*All results from games played on April 22, 2019

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (11-7)

SYRACUSE 7, BUFFALO 3 (BOX)

Syracuse rebounded from an early hole and topped Buffalo 7-3. Hector Santiago allowed three runs in the first, but settled down and combined with Corey Taylor and Tyler Bashlor for eight scoreless innings the rest of the game. A three-run home run from Danny Espinosa tied it in the third, and two home runs from Travis Taijeron later in the game helped build a four run lead that Corey Taylor and Tyler Bashlor protected for the win.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (8-4)

BINGHAMTON 16, AKRON 3 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies trampled the Akron Rubberducks (yes, really) in a 16-3 drubbing. Remarkably, Binghamton didn’t have a single homer in the game, but managed 17 hits and eight walks. Six of the nine Binghamton starters had at least two hits, and left fielder Arismendy Alcantara was the only one to go without a hit. Starter Anthony Kay had himself a fine day as well, striking out ten over six scoreless innings, though he did walk three.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (10-8)

ST. LUCIE 9, LAKELAND 2 (BOX)

A six run second inning propelled St. Lucie to a 9-2 win over Lakeland. Three RBI doubles and a couple of Lakewood errors led to the big inning. Luis Carpio led off the third with a home run to keep the runs coming, and two more runs scored in the fourth. That was more than enough support for Tony Dibrell, who tossed five scoreless innings before stumbling in the sixth. Joseph Shaw and Blake Taylor handled the final 3.2 innings in the blowout win.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (7-10)

WEST VIRGINIA 5, COLUMBIA 0 (BOX)

The Fireflies were were all-around flat in a 5-0 loss to West Virginia. They managed only four hits and made three errors, while starter Jose Butto allowed five runs in only four innings. Top prospects Mark Vientos and Shervyen Newton had particularly rough days; the former made an error and was caught stealing, while the latter went hitless and struck out three times. The only bright spot was a strong relief outing from Bryce Hutchinson, who struck out four in two innings.
