Triple-A Syracuse Mets (24-18)


Alas, the headline does not allude to our International League heroes as they fell 8-2 to the Columbus Clippers yesterday. Corey Coleman was tagged for six runs (all earned) in four innings of work, dropping his season record to 0-4. The only offense of note came when David Thompson and Tim Tebow went back-to-back off former Red Asher Wojciechowski in the bottom of the third, cutting the lead to 4-2. The remaining six innings consisted of four scattered singles and two walks.

Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies (23-15)


This one was not a comeback either as Bingo took the rubber game against the Thunder with a 7-1 wire-to-wire win. Luis Carpio, who repeated St. Lucie for the first month this year, was recalled to Binghamton for Sunday’s game and continued his raking ways: in addition to hitting his first AA home run, he scored three runs and walked twice. Jason Vargas got the rehab start and pitched four good innings before ceding to impressive outings from Adonis Uceta and Stephen Nogosek.

High-A St. Lucie Mets (22-19)


The Mets pulled off a miracle against the Miracle as they found themselves down 5-0 after three innings, and 6-2 after five innings. After scoring two in the top of the sixth to cut the deficit to two, the Mets then went to work in the top of the ninth. Mitch Ghelfi, Cody Bohanek, Nick Meyer, and Carlos Cortes all singled to begin the ninth and Cortes’ hit brought home two tying the game at 6. Following a Jeremy Vasquez walk to load the bases, Quinn Brodey (who also stole home in the sixth), continued the hit parade, driving in Meyer to take the lead. Jacob Zanon then added an insurance run with a sacrifice fly, and Joe Shaw shut down the side in the bottom of the ninth to seal the victory.

Low-A Columbia Fireflies (16-27)

COLUMBIA 9, ROME 8 F/10 (Box)

The bats were out and early in Rome yesterday as the Colaflies tagged Braves starter Gabriel Noguera for 10 hits (6 extra-base) and six runs in five inning. However, as you can see this game went 10 innings for a reason, and Colaflies starter Willy Taveras was equally ineffective in his four innings of work. After trading runs the first six innings, the Colaflies finally took an 8-6 lead into the bottom of the ninth. After Chase Chambers dropped a foul pop-up that would have ended the game, the next pitch Rome bopper Trey Harris smoked a game-tying two-run homerun to center field. Mercifully, Gerson Molina’s single gave the Colaflies the lead in the 10th and Alec Kisena made it stand with his second save of the season.
