*All results from games played on May 1, 2019

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (17-9)


Syracuse scored early and often in an 8-2 win over the Iron Pigs. Carlos Gomez and Travis Taijeron got things rolling early with RBIs in the first, and Danny Espinosa kept it going with a pop up single in the second. Corey Oswalt gave one run back in the bottom of the second, but was solid otherwise, striking out six over his five innign start. Tim Peterson relieved Oswalt with three scoreless innings of his own and chipped in an RBI of his own in the eighth. Paul Sewald made things interesting in the ninth, allowing two hits and a walk, but ultimately escaped unscathed.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (12-8)


The Rumble Ponies rode a seven run fifth inning to an 8-0 win over Akron. Andres Gimenez landed the first blow with a two-run double with the bases loaded, and Binghamton followed that with an infield single, an RBI walk, and another bases loaded double that scored three. Sam Haggerty chipped in one extra run in the sixth with a solo home run. Michael Gibbons contributed five scoreless innings, and three relievers finished out the shutout. Of note, Ryley Gilliam continued to impress, recording another scoreless inning with a strikeout.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (14-12)


Tommy Wilson was the start for St. Lucie, leading the way to a 2-0 win with seven hitless innings. Wilson, a 19th round draft pick out of Cal State Fullerton last season, struck out nine and walked three, but wasn’t allowed to finish his no-hitter attempt after throwing 98 pitches. Yeizo Campos and Blake Taylor couldn’t maintain the no-hitter, but they did hold down the two run lead for the win. The Met offense wasn’t great in this one, with rehabbing Jed Lowrie knocking an RBI single and walking once, and the other run coming on a Jeremy Vasquez sacrifice fly.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (8-17)


Columbia’s rough start to the season continued in an 8-5 loss to Delmarva. Simeon Woods-Richardson got the start and was lit up for five runs in only 3.1 innings. Thomas Szapucki also appeared in relief, recording only one out while allowing two hits and walking two. On offense, the Fireflies were no-hit for the the first five innings until Brian Sharp finally broke through in the sixth with a two-run home run. Three more runs would score in the eighth on four walks and a two-run single from Hayden Senger. While scoring five runs on only three hits is impressive, it wasn’t enough to overcome the poor pitching performance.
