*All results from games played on May 8, 2019

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (18-14)


Syracuse rolled over the Louisville Bats 6-1 thanks to a strong start from Hector Santiago. The veteran starter tossed six innings of one-run ball, striking out four and allowing three hits and two walks. A three run outburst in the third, led by Danny Espinosa and Dominic Smith, was all the offensive support he needed, but Espinosa and Travis Taijeron tacked on some extra insurance with home runs in the sixth and eighth respectively.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (18-10)


Harol Gonzalez and Ryder Ryan put together a special night, combining for the first Binghamton no-hitter since 2006. Gonzalez went 6.2 innings, stiking out six and walking two, before being lifted with 91 pitches in the seventh. Ryan stepped up and got the last seven outs, striking out two along the way, to secure the historic performance. The Rumble Ponies also had a good day on offense, putting together two rallies in the middle innings that came almost entirely from the bottom of the lineup. Andres Gimenez, the most notable position player prospect on the team, went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (18-13)


After putting together seven no-hit innings in his last outing, Tommy Wilson had another big performance in a 5-1 win over Jupiter. The big right-hander tossed six scoreless innings, striking out three and allowing four hits. On offense, the Mets scored five runs with only three RBI, scoring two additional runs on an error and a wild pitch. Blake Tiberi had the most notable day at the dish, notching three singles and two runs on the day.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (9-22)


It was another ugly loss for Columbia, whose early season struggles continue. Jose Butto was rocked for four extra base hits (a homer and three doubles) in only three innings of work, and a costly error from Chandler Avant led to three unearned runs in the second. Alex Kisena took over in the fourth and wasn’t much better, allowing two more runs to score during his two innings of work. In total, the Fireflies tallied only one more hit than they had errors, and scored only one run on an RBI single from Avant in the second. Ronny Mauricio and Shervyen Newton continued to struggle, with the latter adding two more strikeouts to what is already a gaudy early-season total.
