Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (24-21)

LEHIGH VALLEY 6, SYRACUSE 5 (BOX)

Syracuse was rolling for the vast majority of this game. Chris Flexen battled control issues (see: the five walks) to hold the Iron Pigs to a single run, why the Mets offense gave him plenty of run support, mostly due to a four run fifth inning. Rene Rivera had a big night, driving in three of the Mets runs (one in the first inning, two in the fifth), and Dilson Herrera put an exclamation point on their fifth inning outburst by way of a two-run home run, giving the Mets a 5-1 lead.

The Mets bullpen could not finish the job, however. Runs off of Corey Taylor in the seventh and Stephen Villines in the eighth saw their 5-1 lead turn into a 5-3 lead. The wheels fell off in the ninth, when Arquimedes Caminero let up back to back singles to open the inning. A Ruben Tejada error loaded the bases, and a single and a double would hand the Mets a 6-5 loss.

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

LAKELAND 4, ST. LUCIE 3 / 10 (BOX)

A single by Jeremy Vasquez and a sac fly by Jacob Zanon got the Mets a quick 2-0 in the third inning, but that would prove to be the last lead they would see all game. Tony Dibrell, who was far from bad but suffered from some command issues, gave the runs back, by way of a single and a fielder’s choice. Thomas McIlrath would allow a single in the top of the eighth to make it 3-2, but Quinn Brodey would take advantage of a wild pitch to tie it back up in the bottom of the frame. The game would stay tied until the tenth inning, when a single off of Blake Taylor would chase the automatic runner at second base home, making it 4-3. Vasquez. Brodey, and Zanon went down quietly in the bottom of the tenth to secure the loss.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (18-29)

GREENVILLE 4, COLUMBIA 1 (BOX)

Columbia’s offense was stifled in this one. A Mark Vientos sac fly in the first inning chased home a run, but it would prove to be the only run they would muster in the loss. They scattered seven hits in the game, though amassing just one extra base hit, a double off the bat of Ronny Mauricio. The left seven on base, and went 0-6 with runners in scoring position. The pitching kept them within striking distance — the bullpen was especially strong after an uninspiring start from Jose Butto — but they just could not chase any runners home.
