Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (0-1)

NO GAME (RAIN)

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (1-1)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 5, BINGHAMTON 4 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies got on the board first, scoring two in the top of the third on a Sam Haggerty double that allowed Andres Gimenez to score from third (having tripled earlier in the inning) and a Will Toffey RBI single that drove Haggerty home. The Rumble Ponies gave back both runs in the next half inning. After getting the first two outs of the inning on the first two hitters he faced, Chris Mazza loaded the bases on a walk, a single, and a hit-by-pitch. He then surrendered a single to Kacy Clemens that plated two. New Hampshire took a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the seventh, when a Zack Jones wild pitch allowed Brandon Grudzielanek to score from third. The Rumble Ponies evened the score in the next frame, when Sam Haggerty tripled and later scored on a Patrick Mazeika groundout. The game remained tied at three apiece until the top of the eleventh when Michael Paez singled home Will Toffey from third, giving Binghamton a 4-3 lead. The lead would prove to be short-lived, as New Hampshire tied the game up in the bottom of the eleventh inning on a Forrest Wahl RBI single, and walked the game off a few batters later when Kevin Smith singled Wahl home with two outs. The Rumble Ponies lost 5-4 in the second game of their three game set with the Fisher Cats.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (0-2)

BRADENTON 4, ST. LUCIE 2 (BOX)

After losing on opening day, the St. Lucie Mets turned to Tommy Wilson to start yesterday. Wilson managed to work through the first three innings of the game unscathed, but gave up a homer to Bradenton’s Cameron Mitchell to begin the fourth before settling down and getting through the rest of the inning. Wilson struggled in the fifth, giving up two runs on two singles, a Carlos Cortes throwing error, and a double to open the inning. Bradenton scored twice more off of Tommy Wilson in the inning, on a Chris Sharpe sacrifice fly and a Calvin Mitchell single, giving them a 4-0 lead over St. Lucie through five innings. St. Lucie did not go down without a fight though. Trailing Bradenton 4-0, St. Lucie scored a run in the top of the sixth when Travis d’Arnaud singled home Desmond Lindsay from third. The Mets loaded the bases to start the seventh inning, and managed to score again on a Quinn Brodey sacrifice fly. The St. Lucie comeback ended up falling short, as the Mets went down without much of a fight in the final two innings and lost the game to Bradenton 4-2. Todd Frazier played for the second straight day, and went hitless in three at-bats.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (0-2)

CHARLESTON 6, COLUMBIA 1 (BOX)

Right-hander Jose Butto got the start for Columbia in their second game of the season yesterday, and things went south for him almost immediately. The Fireflies found themselves down two runs to none before they got a chance to bat, after Butto walked the first batter of the game and allowed back to back doubles to Charleston’s Josh Stowers and Josh Breaux. The Fireflies responded with one of their own in the bottom half, when Columbia first baseman Chase Chambers drove Juan Uriarte home from third on a fielder’s choice. Unfortunately, that lone run would prove to be the sum total of Columbia’s offense for the evening, and the Fireflies found themselves falling further and further behind as the game continued. The Charleston River Dogs plated another two runs in the top of the second inning on a throwing error from 18-year-old shortstop Ronny Mauricio. It was something of an up and down day for the Mets’ fifth best prospect. Mauricio handled the bat well in his second game of full-season ball, going two-for-two with two singles and adding a walk for good measure, but committed the aforementioned throwing error and got caught stealing to end the second inning with Juan Uriarte at the plate. The River Dogs added insurance runs in the seventh inning on a Josh Stowers double off of Chris Viall, and in the ninth inning on a Kyle Gray triple off of Andrew Mitchell, and ultimately defeated the Fireflies 6-1.
