Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (3-1)


Coming off of their doubleheader sweep on Saturday, the Syracuse Mets added another tally to the win column, beating the Red Sox 6-5 and taking their first series of the season and in franchise history. David Thompson put them on the board in the second with a sac fly, Dilson Herrera added two more in the third with a double, and left fielder Cole Sturgeon committed an error during that play that allowed one more to score. Thompson added an extra insurance run in the sixth, and that run would prove extremely important as Ryan O’Rourke and Ty Bashlor combined to allow five Red Sox runs in the top of the seventh, making it a 5-5 game. The D&D boys pulled Syracuse’s fat out of the fire, with Dilson doubling to lead the eighth off and David Thompson driving him in to give the Mets the lead.

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


Michael Gibbons and Yennsy Diaz traded zeroes for the first couple innings of yesterday’s ballgame, but the Fisher Cats were able to break through in the bottom of the fifth on a Joshua Palacios two-run homer. They added an insurance run in the seventh, this one off of Ryder Ryan, but it would prove unnecessary as the Rumble Ponies were able to get on the board, but plated only a single run.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (1-3)


In their fourth attempt, the St. Lucie Mets finally won their first ballgame of the 2019 season. The game stayed a deadlocked 0-0 tie through seven, but St. Lucie got on the board in the eighth, scoring all three runs in the ballgame. After Blake Tiberi led off the inning with a walk, and the rehabbing Todd Frazier singled, Cody Bohanek came to bat. He laid down a perfect bunt hit, and Marauders pitcher Gavin Wallace committed a throwing error, allowing Tiberi to score. Quinn Brodey drove in Frazier with a ground out, and his partner-in-crime Matt Winaker put down a squeeze bunt that Bohanek scored on to make it 3-0. Blake Taylor took the ball in the eighth and notched a six-out save.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (1-3)


Christian James had a disaster of a third inning, but it was mostly not his fault. Two were on him, but three were unearned due to not one, but two Mark Vientos errors. Columbia got on the board in the bottom of the fifth when Zach Rheams drove in a pair with bases loaded, but Charleston got both of those runs back off of relievers Darwin Ramos and Billy Oxford.
