Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (24-19)


Bullpen woes sunk Syracuse in a 6-4 loss to the Iron Pigs. Zach Lee didn’t have a great start, allowing four runs in six innings, but Syracuse’s offense was equal to the task. A two-run home run from Travis Taijeron in the fourth, a solo shot from Rhymer Liriano in the fifth, and a wild pitch in the sixth sent the game to the seventh tied at four. After Eric Hanhold logged one scoreless inning, Tim Peterson struggled mightily in the bottom of the eighth, allowing back-to-back doubles to start the inning and letting another run cross the plate on a ground out. Syracuse put the tying run on with two outs in the ninth, but Tim Tebow struck out to end the potential rally.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (25-16)


Patrick Mazeika was the lone source of offense in a 2-1 Binghamton loss. Mazeika hit his fifth home run in the last two weeks, a solo shot in the eighth, but the Rumble Ponies couldn’t get anything done with their other eight hits and left nine men on base. The lack of offense left Harol Gonzalez high and dry; the right-hander allowed only two runs in six innings, but took the hard luck loss. Ruben Tejada, recently assigned to Double-A, started at shortstop and hard three hits.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (23-22)


St. Lucie’s pitching imploded in the fourth, dooming them to a 11-5 loss. Kevin Smith got the start and was fine for three innings, but failed to record an out in the fourth and was ultimately charged with three runs. Conner O’Neil relieved him and made things worse, recording only two outs, walking three, allowing five hits, and ultimately surrendering six runs. Carlos Hernandez finally escaped the inning, but allowed another two runs in the fifth that put the Mets in an 11 run hole. The bottom of the St. Lucie lineup got to work, leading a two-run rally in the fifth and a three-run rally in the eighth, but that wasn’t enough to get back in the game.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (18-28)


A late inning rally from Columbia was wasted in a 4-3 loss to Greenville. Simeon Woods Richardson got the start, striking out five over four innings. and got support from Hansel Moreno’s first inning home run. Woods Richardson stumbled in the fourth however and left with the Fireflies down one, and Alex Kisena deepened the hole by allowing another run in the fifth. In the seventh, Columbia rallied back, scoring runs on an RBI double from Shervyen Newton and a single from Brian Sharp. Ezequiel Zabaleta immediately handed the lead back unfortunately, and Columbia didn’t have another rally in them. Mark Vientos and Ronny Mauricio managed one hit between them in the loss.
