Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (24-19)


The Syracuse Mets got on the board almost immediately in Tuesday evening’s game against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Gregor Blanco and Danny Espinosa singled back to back in the top of the first, and Blanco came around to score on a Rene Rivera sacrifice fly later in the inning. Lehigh Valley tied the game a 1-1 in the bottom of the second inning, when Corey Oswalt allowed an RBI single to Lehigh Valley’s Matt McBride. Oswalt allowed a homer to Lehigh Valley’s Mitch Walding to lead off the bottom of the fourth to put the IronPigs up 2-1. Syracuse took a 3-2 lead in the top of the fifth inning, when Rene Rivera singled home Rajai Davis and Espinosa, but gave the lead back in the bottom half of the inning. With one out in the bottom of the fifth, Oswalt gave up two runs on four consecutive singles, giving Lehigh Valley a 4-3 lead that they would not relinquish. The Lehigh Valley IronPigs scored five runs off of Paul Sewald in the bottom of the eighth to put the game out of reach, and ultimately defeated the Syracuse Mets 9-3.

ROSTER ALERT: Second baseman Arismendy Alcantara has been assigned to the Syracuse Mets from the Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (25-15)


The Binghamton Rumble Ponies scored in the top of the third inning of Tuesday evening’s game against the Bowie Baysox, when old friend Ruben Tejada singled Michael Paez home from third. They scored another two in the top of the fourth, when Jason Krizan hit a two-run homer to give the Rumble Ponies a 3-0 lead. Binghamton refused to let up in the top of the fifth. Ruben Tejada doubled to open the inning, and later scored on a single off the bat of Ali Sanchez. Jason Krizan hit a three-run homer, his second of the game, later in the inning, giving the Rumble Ponies a 7-0 lead.

The Rumble Ponies got a pretty good outing from David Peterson on Tuesday night. Peterson cruised through the first four innings without allowing the Baysox to score, but allowed two unearned runs in the bottom of the fifth on errors from Luis Carpio and Tejada. Peterson struck out eight through five innings, and allowed just the two unearned runs on three hits and two walks. Joe Zanghi allowed a run in the bottom of the eighth, but the Binghamton Rumble Ponies held on and ultimately defeated the Bowie Baysox 7-3.

ROSTER ALERT: Second baseman Ruben Tejada has been assigned to the Binghamton Rumble Ponies from the Brooklyn Cyclones.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (23-21)


The St. Lucie Mets scored first in Tuesday night’s game against the Dunedin Blue Jays, when Jacob Zanon hit a solo home run in the bottom of the second. They scored again in the bottom of the third, when Cody Bohanek, who tripled to lead off the inning, scored from third on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Blake Tiberi. That proved to be more than enough offense for the St. Lucie pitching staff, which held Dunedin to just two hits. Tommy Wilson contributed seven scoreless innings, in which he struck out five and allowed just one hit and one walk. Andrew Mitchell followed that up with two scoreless innings of relief, allowing just one hit, and striking out three. The St. Lucie Mets added an additional insurance run in the bottom of the seventh, on back to back doubles from Manny Rodriguez and Matt Winaker, and held on to defeat the Dunedin Blue Jays 3-0.

ROSTER ALERT: Right-handed pitcher Luc Rennie has been assigned to the Brooklyn Cyclones from the St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: Left-handed pitcher Andrew Mitchell has been assigned to the St. Lucie Mets from the Columbia Fireflies.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (18-27)


The Columbia Fireflies scored in the bottom of the first inning last night, when Chase Chambers doubled home Brian Sharp from first. Greenville tied the game at 1-1 in the top of the fourth, when Christian James allowed an RBI double to Greenville’s Kervin Suarez. Greenville took the lead in the top of the sixth, when James allowed another run to score on an RBI single from Greenville’s Alan Marrero. Finding themselves down 2-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth, the Fireflies rallied to score four runs in the inning. Brian Sharp doubled to open the inning, and advanced to third on a single from Mark Vientos. Both Sharp and Vientos scored on wild pitches, and Columbia added another two runs on an RBI triple from Wagner Lagrange and an RBI double from Hayden Senger. The Columbia Fireflies ended up holding on to defeat the Greenville Drive 5-2.
