Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (22-16)

GAME 1: LOUISVILLE 2, SYRACUSE 0 / 7 (BOX)

The offense didn’t show up to the first half of Syracuse’s doubleeheader, registering only three hits in a seven-inning, shutout loss. Casey Coleman was the unfortunate starter, logging five innings of one-run ball, while Eric Hanhold tossed two innings of relief and allowed a run as well. Three singles and three walks was the sum total of the offense in this one, and a pair of stolen bases couldn’t make up the difference.

GAME 2: SYRACUSE 5, LOUISVILLE 0 / 7 (BOX)

Things went much better for Syracuse in game 2, winning a bullpen game 5-0. Ryan O’Rourke got the start and tossed two scoreless innings, and Corey Taylor, P.J. Conlon, Paul Sewald, and Stephen Villines followed him up with five more scoreless innings to get the shutout. Home runs from Danny Espinosa and Dilson Herrera drove the offense, and Tim Tebow chipped in with an RBI single.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (21-13)

ALTOONA 9, BINGHAMTON 8 (BOX)

This was a wild one, but the Rumble Ponies came up just short in a 9-8 loss to the Curve. Binghamton got things going early, scoring five runs in the first on a two-run double from Barrett Barnes and a three-run home run from Patrick Mazeika, who also added an RBI single in the second. Harol Gonzalez didn’t have a great followup to his no-hit outing last start, allowing four runs in six innings, but he handed a lead to the bullpen. David Roseboom promptly blew it, allowing three runs while recording only two outs in the seventh. A Same Haggerty error and some more mediocre relief from Stephen Nogosek led to two more runs in the top of the ninth, putting the Rumble Ponies in a 9-6 hole. Mazeika wasn’t going to quietly, however, as he added a two-RBI double to cap off a six RBI, three hit day (finished a triple short of the cycle) and bring the Mets within one. With the tying and winning runs in scoring position and no outs, Binghamton choked, grounding out, then grounding into a double play after an intentional walk to end the game.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (W/L Record)

GAME 1: FLORIDA 6, ST. LUCIE 5 (BOX)

St. Lucie lost in walkoff fashion in the first half of their doubleheader. A five-run fourth gave the Mets a led, with the bottom four batters of the lineup knocking in four of those runs. Starting Dedniel Nunez gave two of those runs back in the fifth without recording an out, and Carlos Hernandez gave the next three back over the sixth and seventh. The game was tied heading into the bottom of the ninth, but Conner O’Neil allowed a one-out single followed by a double that scored the winning run.

GAME 2: FLORIDA 5, ST. LUCIE 4 / 7 (BOX)

It wasn’t a walk off this time, but St. Lucie lost by one again in game 2. Kyle Wilson was hit around a bit, giving up four runs on three walks and three hits in 4+ innings, and Joseph Shaw gave up the deciding run in relief. St. Lucie almost dug themselves out of the hole with two runs in the sixth and loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, but Carlos Cortes grounded into a double play to end the game.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (14-25)

COLUMBIA 3, AUGUSTA 1 (BOX)

Despite combining for a whopping 15 strikeouts, Columbia came out on top in a 3-1 win over Augusta. Moreno was the offensive store, going 3-for-5 with a home run and a steal. An RBI single from Shervyen Newton and an error by the Green Jackets gave the Fireflies their other two runs. Colin Holderman made that lead stand up with a five inning, one run stat, and Darwin Ramos and Bryce Hutchinson took it home with four scoreless innings.
