*All results from games played on June 15, 2019

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (33-35)


Chris Mazza had a huge day in a 5-0 win against Gwinnett. Mazza tossed eight scoreless innings, striking out eight and allowing only a pair of hits and a walk, and he added a double and a run to his stat line just for fun. On offense, the Mets rode a four run fourth, with RBIs on a Rene Rivera single and two-run home run from Dilson Herrera. The recently resurgent Ruben Tejada also got in on the action, singling in Mazza for an extra run in the fifth.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (33-29)


Binghamton fell to Altoona in a sleepy, 5-1 affair. Andres Gimenez led off the bottom of the first with a triple and scored on an single from Braxton Lee, but the Binghamton offense did next to nothing for the next eight innings. That left starter Luc Rennie out to dry, and the three runs he allowed in a 5.2 inning start were enough to put the Rumble Ponies in hole they wouldn’t escape. Matt Blackham deepened the deficit with two more runs in his 1.1 innings of work before Blake Taylor steadied things with four strikeouts in two strong innings closing out the loss.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (32-34)


Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (24-41)


Ronny Mauricio was the lone bright spot in a 6-2 Columbia loss. Mauricio finished a home run short of the cycle and also walked, while the rest of the Fireflies’ offense managed four hits total. Mark Vientos’s struggles, in particular, are concerning, as he again went hitless with another two strikeouts. Bryce Hutchinson had a disastrous start, allowing four runs in 3.1 innings, and Allan Winans wasn’t much better in relief, allowing two runs in 3.2 innings of work.

SS-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (2-0)


Brooklyn came out on top in a pitcher’s duel, keeping their perfect record going for another day. Jaison Vilera made an excellent start, allowing only one run in 6.2 innings and striking out five. That run scored when Nelson Leon, who relieved Vilera, had a disastrous outing, walking all three batters he faced and uncorking two wild pitches. Justin Lasko came in to put out the fire and preserve the lead, and the rehabbing Justin Wilson teamed up with Andrew Edwards to close out the win. Joe Genord and Jose Mena drove in the runs for Brooklyn in the 2-1 win.
