Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (24-24)


Another day, another Syracuse loss. That’s seven in a row now, dropping them down to .500 for the season. The RailRiders beat up on Corey Oswalt, scoring a run in the top of the second and then four in the third, giving them an early 5-0 lead. Surprisingly, the Mets fought back, scoring five runs in the bottom of the inning to tie things at 5-5. Rene Rivera and Travis Taijeron combined to score all five on a two-RBI single from Rivera and a three-run homer from Taijeron. Oswalt immediately gave up a run to put Scranton Wilkes-Barre, but Gregor Blanco tied things up at 6-6 when he homered in the bottom of the fifth. Mike Ford homered in the seventh, giving the RailRiders the lead and setting in motion a chain of events that would lead to a bunch of ejections. Immediately after the home run, Arquimedes Caminero hit Breyvic Valera with a pitch and was ejected. Danny Espinosa then started jawing at the RailRiders bench, which prompted some pushing and jockeying before order was restored, but Espinosa and Logan Morrison were ejected in the process. The newly promoted Joe Shaw came in to pitch allowed a pair of runs in his two innings, as did Ryan O’Rourke in his, giving Scranton Wilkes-Barre a commanding lead.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Joseph Shaw assigned to Syracuse Mets from St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RHP Tim Peterson outright to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RHP Paul Sewald outright to Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (27-17)


The game started a bit late thanks to some equipment problems, but when it finally did almost two hours later, Trenton scored a pair of runs in the top of the first and took an early lead. The Rumble Ponies got them back in the bottom of the second and then went on to take the lead in the bottom of the third. Binghamton extended their lead in the bottom of the fifth on a Barrett Barnes homer and in the seventh on a Kevin Kaczmarski double. Anthony Kay easily had his worst game of the season, tossing only 5.2 innings and allowing a pair of runs- the first time since April 16th that he allowed more than a run to score.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (25-24)


Without slugging a single home run, the St. Lucie Mets scored twelve runs. Kyle Wilson initially allowed the Flying Tigers to take the lead by allowing a run in the top of the first, but Manny Rodriguez and Jacob Zanon both drove in runs in the bottom of the inning, giving St. Lucie a lead they wouldn’t relinquish. Lakeland starter Tarik Skubal wasn’t particularly good, and the bullpen behind him was equally leaky.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (19-31)


Both teams put up zero after zero until Columbia took the lead when Ronny Mauricio doubled and Hansel Moreno scored on an error in the top of the sixth. In the top of the seventh, Juan Uriarte doubled, adding another run to the Fireflies’ tally. Given a 3-0 lead, Billy Oxford came in to pitch in the bottom of the inning and things went disastrously wrong. The right-hander allowed an earned run, but thanks to a Sheryven Newton error, four unearned runs scored, completing turning the tide of the game. Hansel Moreno singled in the top of the eighth, but the rally never really got started and Columbia went down in the eighth and ninth.
