*All results from games played on April 8th

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (4-1)


It got dicey at the end, but Syracuse held on in a 5-4 win over Rochester. The Mets established a 4-2 lead in the fourth thanks to RBI doubles from Danny Espinosa, Dilson Herrera, and David Thompson. Herrera added another RBI knock in the sixth, which turned out to be the deciding run. Chris Flexen was great for six innings, and Eric Hanhold followed with two solid innings of his own. Jacob Rhame stumbled, but ultimately protected the three run lead, giving up two runs in the ninth before registering his first save of the year.

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


Make up scheduled for May 3rd.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (2-3)


Three pitchers combined for a three hit shutout in St. Lucie’s 2-0 win over Tampa. Luc Rennie got the start and tossed five innings, while Carlos Hernandez and Rylely Gilliam followed with two scoreless innings each. Blake Tiberi led the offensive effort, going 3-for-4, while the rehabbing Todd Frazier DHed and went 1-for-3 with a walk. Desmond Lindsay, the most notable prospect, on the team, went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (2-3)


The Fireflies offense was a bright spot in a 7-4 win over Rome. Walter Rasquin led the way with a three hit night, and Ronny Mauricio had two hits of his own. More significantly, Thomas Szapucki made his first appearance since undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2017. He pitched only one inning (game had been delayed by rain) and his command looked rusty, but got off the mound healthy, which is the major goal in his first couple appearances. Dedniel Nunez had the best pitching performance, with ten strikeouts in 5.2 innings of relief.
