Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (36-39)

GWINETT 5, SYRACUSE 1 (BOX)

Syracuse managed only one run, Travis Taijeron’s fifteenth home run of the season. Not a good recipe for a victory, especially when the team was already behind 2-0 before Taijeron launched his long ball. The bullpen faltered late, but it really wouldn’t make much of a difference, as again, the offense managed only one run.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (34-29/2-3)

RICHMOND 4, BINGHAMTON 3 (BOX)

David Peterson had his first real good start in a long, long time, but the Rumble Ponies squandered it, losing to Richmond when the bullpen faltered. With the score tied 2-2, Joe Shaw allowed two runs in the top of the eighth, giving the Flying Squirrels the lead. Binghamton scored in the bottom of the inning when Ali Sanchez scored on a wild pitch, but weren’t able to tie things up, as David Thompson- the tying run- was thrown out at the plate to end the inning. Shaw threw a 1-2-3 top of the ninth, but the Ponies went down in order in the bottom of the inning to end the ballgame.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/6-1)

ST. LUCIE 7, FLORIDA 2 (BOX)

St. Lucie and the Fire Frogs were evenly matched early on, but Florida starter Nolan Kingham faltered late. In his last inning of work, the right-hander allowed a pair of runs, extending St. Lucie’s lead to 5-2. Later, in the eighth, Jeremy Vasquez laced a two-run double off of Walter Borkovich that made it 7-2.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/2-2)

COLUMBIA 11, ASHEVILLE 9 (BOX)

It was a high scoring affair, with both teams slugging it out until the last out. The score changes hands a few times early on, but Columbia jumped out to a big lead in the sixth. With the score 4-3, the Colaflies plated five runs, batting around in the inning. The Tourists clawed back, coming within two runs after getting to the Firefly bullpen, but Billy Oxford held fast in the ninth.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (4-5)

STATEN ISLAND 11, BROOKLYN 1 (BOX)

The Brooklyn Cyclones were swept for the first time this season, getting spanked by the Staten Island Yankees 11-1, ruining an otherwise beautiful Sunday afternoon. Staten Island starter Josh Maciejewski threw five-plus innings of shutout ball, striking out a career-high seven, while Brooklyn’s starter, Garrison Bryant, gave up three runs over three-plus innings. Staten Island did most of their damage late in the game, touching up the Cyclones’ bullpen: Yeudy Colon was tagged for four runs in an inning-plus, and Brian Metoyer was tagged for four in one. Zach Rheams led off the bottom of the ninth with a home run, avoiding the shutout, but it was a game to forget for Edgardo Alfonzo’s squad.

With the win, Staten Island has the edge in the 2019 Battle of the Bridge 3-2. Uncharacteristically, the two teams will have to wait until August to play each other once again, with the next scheduled contest between the two on August 11th.

ROSTER ALERT: Sent 2B Gavin Cecchini on a rehab assignment to Brooklyn Cyclones.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (4-2)

ELIZABETHTON 12, KINGSPORT 6 (BOX)

The Kingsport offense showed up, but the Elizabethton Twins batters had their way with Kingsport’s pitchers. The game was fairly close early on, but Mitchell Senger let things get out of hand in the fourth, combining with Michel Otanez to allow five runs. Two innings later, in the sixth, Hector Rodriguez and Yadiel Flores combined to allow another four runs, effectively putting the game out of reach.
