Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (25-24)

SYRACUSE 9, SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE 5 (BOX)

Syracuse rode a big third inning to a 9-5 win over the Scranton Railriders. Both teams scored a run in the first, and Scranton started the fireworks in the third with four runs in the top half off of starter Zach Lee. The Mets responded immediately, with a bases loaded double from Travis Taijeron, a two-RBI single from Luis Guillorme, and another single from David Thompson generating five runs and giving Syracuse the lead. A two-run home run from Rene Rivera in the seventh stretched the lead further, and the combination of Paul Sewald, Arquimedes Caminero, and Tim Peterson combined for four innings of scoreless relief to make those runs moot anyway.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (27-18)

TRENTON 11, BINGHAMTON 2 (BOX)

It was a rough day for the Rumble Ponies’ pitchers, as they gave up eleven runs in a blowout loss. Tommy Wilson was roughed up for four runs in four innings, Joshua Torres allowed three runs in three innings, and after David Roseboom changed things up with a couple scoreless innings, Ryley Gilliam surrendered four runs in 1.2 innings to polish off the poor performance. On offense, Patrick Mazeika generated the only RBI, with the other Binghamton run scoring on a double play off the bat of Will Toffey.

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (19-32)

CHARLESTON 9, COLUMBIA 7 (BOX)

Columbia’s defense faltered late in a 9-7 loss to Charleston. The Firefles lost an early lead in the seventh, when Tylor Megill gave up two runs without recording an out. Ronny Mauricio was also culpable, allowing the leadoff runner to reach on an error. Shervyen Newton picked his teammates up, however, re-tying the game in the top of the eight with an RBI single, but more bad defense and shoddy pitching struck in the eighth. A fielding error by Brian Sharp opened the flood gates, and Jose Moreno wound up allowing four runs in the inning, none of which were earned. Hansel Moreno launched a two run home run in the ninth to cut the deficit to two, but the next to batters went down quietly.
