Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (16-9)

SYRACUSE 18, LEHIGH VALLEY 5 (BOX)

The Syracuse Mets got on the board first in the top of the first inning when Rajai Davis scurried home from third on a passed ball from Lehigh Valley catcher Deivy Grullon. They scored another two runs in the frame on a single from Adeiny Hechavarria and a sacrifice fly from David Thompson to make the score 3-0. The Mets broke the game open in the top of the second, by scoring four runs on a pair of Lehigh Valley errors and an RBI single from Luis Guillorme that scored two. Armed with a 7-0 lead, Syracuse did not let up from there, scoring four runs in the top of the fourth and an additional run in the fifth before erupting for six runs in the top of the ninth highlighted by a trio of back to back to back RBI doubles from Rymer Liriano, Danny Espinosa, and Adeiny Hechavarria. Chris Flexen generally pitched pretty well, holding Lehigh Valley to just two runs through six innings for Syracuse. Eric Hanhold surrendered a three-run homer to Lehigh Valley’s Shane Robinson in the bottom of the ninth, but Syracuse held on to win the game 18-5.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (11-8)

BINGHAMTON 1, AKRON 0 (BOX)

Mickey Jannis pitched wonderfully for the Rumble Ponies on Tuesday evening. The journeyman knuckleballer threw seven shutout innings last night, and allowed just two hits and one walk, while striking out three. The lone run of the game was scored in the bottom of the second inning on a Braxton Lee RBI single that drove Will Toffey home from second. Ryder Ryan and Matt Blackham contributed a scoreless inning of relief each, and the Binghamton Rumble Ponies ultimately defeated the Akron RubberDucks 1-0.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (13-12)

PALM BEACH 9, ST. LUCIE 1 (BOX)

The St. Lucie Mets fell behind early in Tuesday night’s contest against the Palm Beach Cardinals. Luc Rennie gave up a run in the top of the first inning on a Luken Baker RBI ground out that followed back to back singles from Palm Beach’s Yariel Gonzalez and Nick Dunn. Rennie allowed an additional three in the top of the second inning on a three-run homer off the bat of Palm Beach’s Justin Toerner. St. Lucie got a run back in the bottom of the third on a RBI single from Luis Carpio that drove Carlos Cortes home from second. That proved to be the extent of the scoring for St. Lucie last night. Palm Beach scored an additional run in the sixth off of Brian Campusano, and an additional three runs in the top of the eighth off of Marcel Renteria. Joseph Shaw allowed an additional run to score in the top of the ninth. The St. Lucie Mets ultimately lost to the Palm Beach Cardinals 9-1.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (8-16)

DELMARVA 6, COLUMBIA 3 (BOX)

The Columbia Fireflies played a sloppy game last night against the Delmarva Shorebirds last night. Delmarva got on the board first off of Columbia’s Christian James in the top of the second inning when Delmarva’s Seamus Curran singled home Nick Horvath from second. James gave up another two runs in the top of the third on a two-run homer from Delmarva’s Doran Turchin. Delvmarva scored another run in the top of the fourth on a single that was set up by a pair of errors from Mark Vientos and Bradley Marquez to extend their lead to 4-0. To their credit, the Columbia Fireflies did not go down without a fight, scoring a run in each of the last three innings but ultimately lost to the Delmarva Shorebirds 6-3.

ROSTER ALERT: The Columbia Fireflies activated catcher Carlos Sanchez from the 7-day disabled list.

ROSTER ALERT: Catcher Juan Uriarte has been assigned to the Brooklyn Cyclones from the Columbia Fireflies.
