Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (17-12)


Zach Lee pitched his best game in literally years, but left-hander was outpitched by Nestor Cortes, who tossed seven-plus scoreless innings to Lee’s two over seven. Trailing in the bottom of the ninth, Carlos Gomez blasted a two-run homer over the left-center wall to tie the game up at 2-2. The lead unfortunately didn’t last long, as Matt Lipka hit an RBI double in the top of the tenth and Syracuse was unable to replicate that in the bottom of the inning.

ROSTER ALERT: The New York Mets sent 2B Jed Lowrie on a rehab assignment to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP P.J. Conlon assigned to Syracuse Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Chris Flexen from Syracuse Mets

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (15-9)


The Rumble Ponies took an early lead with a run in the top of the first, but a rehabbing Dustin Pedroia put Portland on the board in the bottom of the inning, tying things up at 1-1 apiece. C.J. Chatham gave the Sea Dogs the lead in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI double, but Michael Paez quickly tied things back up in the top of the sixth with an RBI double of his own. Binghamton plated two in the seventh, but a two-run lead wouldn’t be good enough either, as Ryley Gilliam gave up his first runs as a member of the Ponies and allowed the game to be tied. In the top of the tenth, Ali Sanchez reached on a fielder’s choice in the top of the tenth, allowing Arismendy Alcantara to score and give Binghamton the lead once again. In his second inning of work, Gilliam looked shaky once again, leading off the inning with a walk, but was able to put the game to bed with an assist from some shoddy baserunning on the part of Portland.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (16-12)


Quinn Brodey homered in the third, putting two on the board for St. Lucie, and that would end up all they needed, as Tony Dibrell and the rest of the bullpen limited the Blue Jays to just a single run. That single run came in the bottom of the ninth, and Dunedin was rallying, but Blake Taylor was able to get pinch hitter Demi Orimoloye to strike out to end the threat, and the game.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (8-19)
