*All results from games played on June 19, 2019

Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (35-36)


Syracuse had an impressive day on offense, but the pitching imploded late in a 9-7 loss. Ruben Tejada led the way, hitting for the cycle, while Aaron Altherr, Rene Rivera, and Dilson Herrera all tallied homers as well. There efforts had the Mets up 7-4 after six, but Louis Coleman and David Roseboom allowed four runs without recording an out in the seventh, and Ryley Gilliam allowed the Knights to add an insurance run in the eighth. Tim Tebow went hitless with a strikeout in the loss.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29)


Binghamton triumphed in extra innings over the Fisher Cats. riding a tenth inning rally to a 3-2 win. Mickey Jannis had a solid start, allowing only one run in 5.1 innings of work, and Stephen Villines followed that up with 2.2 scoreless innings of his own. Unfortunately, the Rumble Ponies could only manage one run on a sacrifice fly from Barrett Barnes in the sixth, and the game headed to the tenth inning tied at one. After Luis Carpio popped out and Andres Gimenez struck out, Binghamton put together a two-out rally; two walks loaded the bases (a runner is placed at second base at the start of every inning), and Patrick Mazeika came through with a two-run single. Matt Blackham allowed a run to score in the bottom of the tenth, but ultimately closed out the win.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (32-34/3-0)

Score (Box Score Link)

St. Lucie’s perfect second half continued with a 5-1 win over Lakeland. Tony Dibrell led the way with 6.2 innings of one-run ball, striking out five and allowing four hits, and the Mets gave him more than adequate support. Matt Winaker struck first with a two-run home run in the second inning and a sacrifice fly and a wild pitch led to two more runs in the fifth. Jeremy Vasquez tacked on an extra run for good measure in the eighth with an RBI double.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (24-42)


Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (4-2)


Despite performing well with RISP, Brooklyn managed only two runs in a loss against Lowell. Brooklyn managed six hits, three of which came in scoring chances, but only two led to runs; Guillermo Granadillo’s double and Jose Mena’s single, both in the second. Corey Oswalt made a brief, 1.1 inning start and wasn’t great, allowing three hits, a walk, and a run, while striking out three. Daison Acosta and Mitch Ragan each allowed an earned run in relief, with a Luke Ritter error leading to another unearned run late in the game.

Rookie - Kingsport Mets (1-1)


Kingsport couldn’t keep their record perfect, falling 3-1 to Greeneville. The Reds jumped all over top prospect Junior Santos (who is only 17) early, who allowed three runs while recording only one out. The game was actually surprisingly calm from there on out, with neither team scoring again until Scott Ota drove in a run with a sacrifice fly in the eighth. Despite only managing only one run, Kingsport had eight hits, going 1-for-8 with RISP and leaving eleven men on base in the loss.
