Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (26-25)


Syrcause’s bullpen melted down in a 6-4 loss to Buffalo. Walter Lockett made a solid six inning start, allowing two runs, only one of which was earned. He departed with a 4-2 lead, thanks to home runs from Ruben Tejada and Luis Guillorme along with an RBI groundout from Arismendy Alcantara. Eric Hanhold preserved the lead for the seventh, but recorded only one out in the eighth while being charged with three runs to blow the lead. Ryan O’Rourke allowed another run to give Buffalo insurance, and the Mets went quietly in the ninth.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (29-18)


Down two in the ninth, the Rumble Ponies rallied for two runs to tie in the ninth, then went on to win 9-5 in ten innings. David Peterson got the start and wasn’t great, allowing three earned runs in 4.2 innings, while striking out six. Down 4-0 in the sixth, Ali Sanchez began chipping away, launching a two-run home run to cut the lead to two. In the ninth, Jason Kriz blooped a two-run, game tying single with two outs to tie the game at four. Matt Blackham sent the game to extras with a scoreless ninth inning, then got the win after a five run Binghamton rally in the top of the tenth.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (W/L Record)


It was an ugly game all around for St. Lucie, as they surrendered thirteen hits and committed three errors in a 9-2 loss. Kevin Smith actually got the game off to a great start, striking out eight over four scoreless innings. That start was quickly wasted, as Darwin Ramos gave up four unearned runs in the fifth thanks to two errors from Blake Tiberi and a passed ball. Ezequiel Zabaleta compounded the issue by allowing three more earned runs in his two innings of work, and Connor O’Neil allowed another two runs in the ninth. The only two runs for St. Lucie scored on solo home runs from Jeremy Vasquez and Quinn Brodey.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (20-32)
