*All results from games played on Saturday, May 11, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (20-15)

COLUMBUS 3, SYRACUSE 1 (BOX)

Through eight innings, the Clippers held Syracuse scoreless. Finally, leading off the ninth, Danny Espinosa wacked a solo homer to break up the shutout, but that was all the team managed. It was a waste of a fairly decent pitching performance by Chris and yet another scoreless inning for Stephen Villines.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets activated RHP Corey Taylor from the temporarily inactive list.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Eric Hanhold from Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (19-12)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 6, BINGHAMTON 4 (BOX)

The Fisher Cats took an early lead, and coming into the bottom of the sixth, the Ponies found themselves down 4-0. Sam Haggerty drove in a run to put Binghamton on the board, and a few innings later, Barret Barnes and Patrick Mazeika combined to drive in three runs and tie the game up. With Adonis Uceta on the mound, New Hampshire catcher Riley Adams hit a go-ahead 2-run homer in the ninth to give the Cats the lead. Binghamton didn’t go down without a fight, putting men at second and third with no outs against reliever Danny Young in the bottom of the inning, but he came back to strike out the side after getting himself in trouble.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (18-16)

CHARLOTTE 8, ST. LUCIE 2 (BOX)

The Stone Crabs took an early two-run lead but St. Lucie scratched back and tied things up, scoring a run in the bottom of the third on a Carlos Cortes sac fly and another in the sixth on a Luis Carpio single. Marcel Renteria replaced Yeizo Campos in the eighth and had a nightmare of an inning, failing to record a single out while allowing six runs on five hits and a pair of walks. Naturally, St. Lucie was unable to climb out of that hole.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (11-23)

COLUMBIA 6, ROME 2 / 7 (BOX)

Hayden Senger plated the first run of the game in the bottom of the first, giving the Colaflies an early lead, and they held it for the entirety of the contest. The bats did most of their damage in the fourth, when they loaded up the bases and then scored a run on a Gerson Molina hit-by-pitch and a Chandler Avant double that cleared the bases. Christian James took over for Thomas Szapucki in the third and scattered a pair of runs over his four innings- though Columbia negated one of those on a Molina home run in the fifth.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies placed RHP Chris Viall on the 7-day injured list.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Billy Oxford assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Brooklyn Cyclones.
