Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (23-17)

COLUMBUS 14, SYRACUSE 3 (BOX)

The Syracuse Mets fell behind early to the Columbus Clippers on Friday evening and were unable to overcome the early deficit they found themselves in. Zach Lee gave up five runs in the top of the first inning and left the game in the fifth inning with two runners on base without recording an out. Corey Taylor came in to relieve Lee, and allowed both inherited runners to score, as well as a run of his own. The Syracuse offense got a big day out of Rene Rivera, who homered in the bottom of the third to cut the Columbus lead to 5-1. Gregor Blanco contributed an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth, and Rivera hit another solo shot in the bottom of the seventh, but by then the game was out of reach for the Mets. PJ Conlon gave up four runs in the top of the ninth, and the Columbus Clippers ended up defeating the Syracuse Mets 14-3.

ROSTER ALERT: The New York Mets have selected the contract of outfielder Carlos Gomez from the Triple-A Syracuse Mets.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (21-15)

TRENTON 6, BINGHAMTON 2 (BOX)

The Binghamton Rumble Ponies got on the board early in Friday evening’s game against the Trenton Thunder. Braxton Lee tripled home Arismendy Alcantara from second in the top of the first inning to give the Rumble Ponies an early 1-0 lead. Chris Mazza immediately ran into trouble in the bottom half of the inning, when he allowed back to back singles to open the inning, and then immediately allowed both runners to score on an RBI double off the bat of Trenton’s Ben Ruta. Binghamton tied the game in the top of the fourth, when Ali Sanchez singled home Dario Pizzano from second, but they were unable to keep the game close from there. Trenton again scored two runs in the bottom half of the inning off of Mazza, and scored another two in the bottom of the eighth off Joshua Torres, and ultimately defeated Binghamton 6-2.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (20-19)

ST. LUCIE 2, FORT MYERS 1 (BOX)

The St. Lucie Mets got a stellar performance from their pitching staff on Friday evening against the Fort Myers Miracle. Kevin Smith allowed a solo home run to Fort Myers’ Royce Lewis in the bottom of the first inning, but cruised through the next five innings without allowing any additional scoring. St. Lucie tied the game in the top of the second inning, when Luis Carpio scored on a double play ball off the bat of Nick Meyer. The game remained tied at 1-1 through the first nine innings, with St. Lucie getting a scoreless inning from Marcel Renteria, and three scoreless innings from Joe Cavallaro. St. Lucie took the lead in the top of the tenth inning on a Carlos Cortes RBI double and ultimately defeated the Fort Myers Miracle 2-1.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (15-26)

ROME 11, COLUMBIA 3 (BOX)

Simeon Woods-Richardson ran into trouble almost immediately in the Columbia Fireflies’ game against the Rome Braves last night. He allowed a single to Rome’s Justin Dean to start the game, and later allowed him to score on a triple off the bat of Rome’s Greg Cullen. Woods-Richardson allowed three runs in the bottom of the first inning, and an unearned run in the third on a throwing error from Shervyen Newton. The Fireflies got on the board in the top of the fourth, when Hansel Moreno scurried home from third on a double play ball from Chase Chambers. They scored two more in the fifth on a Juan Uriarte two-run homer, which cut the Rome lead to 4-3. Unfortunately, the game fell out of reach in the bottom half of the inning. Woods-Richardson allowed back to back singles to open the inning, and left the game in favor of Alec Kisena. Woods-Richardson allowed five or more runs for the fourth consecutive start on Friday, giving up six runs on seven hits and one walk. Kisena allowed both inherited runners to score, and allowed another five earned runs of his own to score in the inning. By the end of the inning the Rome Braves had scored seven runs, and ultimately defeated the Columbia Fireflies 11-3.
