Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (35-37)


Anthony Kay’s foray into Triple-A continued to be hard on the young lefty, as he had another rough start for Syracuse. He lasted just a single inning in the loss, giving up an RBI double, an RBI single, and a two-RBI double that saw Charlotte run out to a 4-0 lead. That lead would easily hold — Charlotte tacked on two more runs on David Roseboom in the fourth by way of a John Jay single, and the Mets offense would muster just four hits.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Walker Lockett from Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned LHP Daniel Zamora to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jacob Rhame assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets activated LHP Ryan O’Rourke from the 7-day injured list.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (36-29)


This was a nice a tidy win for Binghamton. Ali Sanchez got them on the board with an RBI single in the first, and a wild pitch, and a Patrick Mazeika sacrifice fly put the Rumble Ponies up 3-0 in the third. Sanchez drove in another run in the fourth, this one by way of a double, which put Binghamton up 4-0. This would prove to be more than enough, as the only blip the pitching staff would see all game came on a two-run double in the sixth inning.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (32-34/3-1)


The St. Lucie offense was basically two players today: Carlos Cortes and Jeremy Vasquez (though Cody Bohanek got on base three times as well). Vazquez drove in both runs, and both of those runs were scored by Cortes. Outside of that, the Mets struggled to get their offense going, and Kevin Smith served up four runs in the first two innings before settling in. They simply could not climb out of the hole they put themselves in.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jacob Rhame assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed OF Alfredo Escalera on the 7-day injured list retroactive to June 18, 2019.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (24-42/0-1)


Columbia’s start to their second half was about as disastrous as anyone could have imagined, perhaps even more so. The pitching staff gave up !!!!26!!!! runs, although they certainly were not helped out by the defense, as they had three errors behind them leading to six of those runs being unearned. Despite that, 20 earned runs is, in a word, terrible.

The offense was not even that bad, either, as everyone who got an at-bat got a hit. Mark Vientos had a strong game, as did a few of the other hitters in the lineup, but the story comes down to the pitching.

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (4-2)


Rookie - Kingsport Mets (2-1)


Kingsport got back into the win column with an offensive explosion, scoring 13 runs in the win. Most of the runs game in second and sixth innings, where they scored four and five respectively.

Jaylen Palmer started the scoring with a home run in the bottom of the first inning. They tacked on those four runs in the second by way of an L.A. Woodard walk, a Jhoander Saez single, and a Sebastian Espino triple. Seaz chased home another run in the bottom of the fourth, and Cristopher Pujols drove in one of his own in the fifth. The sixth inning really put the game out of reach, as Gregory Guerrero homered, Palmer chased home a run on a sacrifice fly, and Andres Regnault put an exclamation point on the game with a two-run home run.

The pitching was shaky at times, but the offense provided more than enough room to work with.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Christofer Dominguez assigned to Kingsport Mets from GCL Mets.
