Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (38-40)


Harol Gonzalez led the Mets to a win in his first start in Triple-A, as Pawtucket topped Syracuse 6-3. The righthander went 5.2 innings, allowing two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four. He didn’t allow a run until the sixth, but the two runs he gave up took him out of line for the win and put the Mets in a one run hole. Luis Guillorme promptly tied the game with his third home run of the year, and the Mets put together a four run rally in the seventh to take the lead. Tim Tebow had a big hit, driving in two with a double, and Guillome added another two RBI on a single. Dilson Herrera also added another home run to his impressive season in the win.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/3-7)


Binghamton got bashed in their first game of the day, a 10-0. Luc Reniie made a disastrous start, giving up all ten runs on ten hits and a walk. Two runs were unearned thanks to errors by Andres Gimenez and Willy Toffey, but this was a rough outing anyway you slice it. Offensively, Binghamton managed only three hits and only had three opportunities with RISP all game.


Binghamton lost their second game of the day as well, a makeup of a game rained out in April. The offense struggled again, managing only one extra base hit, a double off the bat of Dustin Houle that drove in the lone Binghamton run in the fourth. Jaison Vilera pitched well, allowing only two runs in 5.2 innings, but the offense hung him out to dry with no support.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/7-2)


St. Lucie couldn’t score after the first inning, falling quietly in a 3-1 loss to Dunedin. Jeremy Vasquez had the lone RBI, driving in Carlos Cortes with a double that gave the Mets a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Kevin Smith worked around constant traffic in a 5.2 inning start, giving up nine hits and a walk, but managed to surrender only one run. Thomas McIlraith couldn’t keep the game tied in relief, however, giving up two runs in the seventh that proved to be the difference.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/4-3)


Columbia kept their second half record from dipping into the red, topping Lexington in a 2-1 pitcher’s duel. Jose Butto was excellent for six innings, allowing only one run on five hits and striking out five, but the offense couldn’t do enough to get him the win. The only run the Fireflies generated on their own came in the first, when Mark Vientos drove on Ronny Mauricio on a groundout. The game remained tied until the eight, when a wild pitch allowed Gerson Molina to scamper home with the deciding run. Billy Oxford and Allan Winans each pitched a scoreless inning to secure the win.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (2-0)


Brooklyn came out on top in extra innings, topping Abderdeen 2-1. The Cyclones got the first run of the game in the fourthCorey Oswalt, making another rehab start, struck out four over 4.2 innings, but a Joe Genord error led to an unearned run that tied the game in the fifth. Mitch Ragan and Nelson Leon kept the Iron Birds off the board for 4.2 innings of relief, but the Cyclones couldn’t manage any more offense and the game went to extras. Brooklyn promptly took advantage of their gifted runner at second, and a sacrifice bunt followed by a sacrifice fly drove in Luke Ritter. In the bottom half, Yeudy Colon worked around a walk and a HBP before Ranfy Adon threw out Maverick Handley at home plate on a fly out to end the game.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (6-3)


Kingsport won in very boring fashion, topping Burlington 4-1. Ramon Guzman struck out seven in five scoreless innings, and Jefferson Escorcha gave up the only Burlington run during his three innings of relief. On offense, there wasn’t a particular standout; no homers, no steals, no three hit days. The most notable events were the three triples Kingsport tallied, with Kennie Taylor, Scott Ota, and Matt O’Neill all notching three base hits.

Rookie: GCL Mets (2-0)


It was a very ‘GCL’ affair, with the Mets topping the Astros 11-6. Both teams scored a run in the first, and things were calm until the fourth. Then, Francisco Alvarez launched his first professional home run. That opened the floodgates, with both teams trading blows until the Mets broke a 6-6 tie with a five run eighth inning. First round pick Brett Baty had another good day, going 2-for-5 with a couple RBI, and Adrian Hernandez had two doubles and a steal of his own.
