Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (19-14)


The Mets offense exploded after trailing 2-1 into the seventh inning. Danny Espinosa tied the game with a ground out, and Rajai Davis followed up with a two-run double. A David Thompson single and a Tim Tebow double pushed the lead to 6-2 in the eighth inning.

The Mets bullpen needed all the runs they got, however, as Sean Burnett came in to finish the game out and nearly blew their lead. He allowed the Bats to load the bases. Arquimedes Caminero gave up two singles, allowing two of the runs Burnett put on base to score, but he coaxed out a double play ball to secure the win.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled 1B Dominic Smith from Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Chris Mazza assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from Syracuse Mets.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (19-10)


The first five innings of this game went scoreless, with Harrisburg breaking through first on a sacrifice fly in the sixth. Binghamton put up a run in both the seventh and eighth innings, but the bullpen gave the slim 2-1 lead away, and the game went into extras.

The Rumble Ponies took the lead in the top of the tenth, as a throwing error forced home a run to make it 3-2. Matt Blackham would give the lead back with an error of his own, tying the game at three. Binghamton would strike right back, as Andres Gimenez would pinch hit with the bases loaded and promptly get hit by a pitch to force home a run. Arismendy Alacantra forced home his second RBI of the game on a ground out, pushing their lead to 5-3. A one, two, three inning by David Roseboom finished off the wild affair.

ROSTER MOVE: RHP Chris Mazza assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from Syracuse Mets.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (18-14)


St. Lucie had a lead in this one, as Blake Tiberi broke a scoreless tie in the fifth inning with an RBI single. The offense was toothless after that, as they strung together seven hits through nine innings.

Kevin Smith put together a nice start, striking out nine in five and two thirds innings, but Carlos Hernandez could not hold the lead. He served up a two-run home run following a Tiberi error in the sixth, and an extra insurance run in the seventh, which would prove to be too much for the Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Luc Rennie assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Brooklyn Cyclones.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed RHP Briam Campusano on the 7-day injured list.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (9-23)


Columbia got off to a hot start to this game, as Mark Vientos put them up 2-0 in the top of the first with second home run of the young season. The lead only lasted until the third inning, as WIlly Tavares gave up one run in the first and two in the third to put the Fireflies down 3-2. Juan Uriarte hit his first home run of the season in the sixth, tying the game at three. Tavares and Chris Viall would not be able to hold down the Charleston offense, as the duo surrendered three runs in the seventh. Columbia’s offense stayed silent the rest of the way, as their rough season continues.
