*All results from games played on June 24, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (36-40)

LEHIGH VALLEY 4, SYRACUSE 3 (BOX)

A pair of home runs weren’t enough to lift Syracuse past Lehigh Valley, and the Mets fell 4-3 to the Iron Pigs. Anthony Kay made a short start, lasting only four innings and allowing two runs on two walks and five hits. He departed with the game tied at two, and Syracuse would jump out to a 3-2 lead three innings later on Arismendy Alcantara’s solo shot. Unfortunately Tyler Bashlor immediately coughed that lead up, allowing two runs in the top of the eighth that proved to be the difference.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (34-29/4-3)

GAME 1: BINGHAMTON 3, ERIE 0 / 7 (BOX)

Binghamton cruised to an easy win in their first game of the day, shutting out Erie 3-0. Joe Zanghi made a four inning start, but it was Ryder Ryan who got the win after two scoreless innings of his own. Stephen Villines recorded the save with a perfect inning. Jason Krizan was the offensive start, with his two-run double in the fifth providing ample cushion for the Rumble Ponies.

GAME 2: BINGHAMTON 2, ERIE 1 (BOX)

Binghamton came out on top in Game 2 as well, as Mickey Jannis finished up April 14th’s suspended game with eight innings of one run ball. Andres Gimenez led the way on offense, with a pair of steals and a home run - technically his first in both categories on the season. Michael Paez had the other RBI in the win, driving in Will Toffey with a single in the sixth inning.

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/3-2)

COLUMBIA 8, LEXINGTON 6 (BOX)

Despite playing an extremely sloppy game, Columbia came out on top over Lexington 8-6. Simeon Woods Richardson didn’t make it out of the fifth and he gave up five runs, but he was sabotaged by a pair of errors that made three of those runs unearned. Lexington added another insurance run in the eighth, and Columbia headed to their last chance of the day trailing 6-2. What followed was an incredible ninth inning rally; four of the first five batters singled, leading to two runs and leaving two men on base. An error and a sacrifice fly tied the game and left the winning run on base, then a walk and a double off the bat of Hayden Senger drove in the go-ahead run and an insurance run to boot. Allan Winans held on tight to the lead to close out the comeback.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (4-5)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (4-3)

BURLINGTON 7, KINGSPORT 4 (BOX)

A rough day with RISP sunk Kingsport in 7-4 loss. The Mets left eight men on base and went a cumulative 1-for-9 with RISP, squandering ample opportunities to support a pitching staff having an off day. Top prospect Junior Santos struggled in a three inning start, allowing two runs and striking out only one, and Nate Peden gave up a ghastly five runs in three innings of relief. Wilfred Astudillo eschewed his family name, walking and striking out in three at bats, while Christopher Pujols launched his first home run of the year in the loss.
