*All results from games played on June 27, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (39-40)


The Mets bats were silent for the vast majority of this game, putting just one run on the board through the first seven innings, by way of a Rajai Davis sacrifice fly. They put on three runs in the eighth however, turning a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 lead. Dilson Herrera started the scoring that inning with a ground-rule double, and Rene Rivera put them in the lead for good with a two run single.

The pitching was mostly solid, as Ervin Santana got through five innings with three runs, and the bullpen was nearly perfect to keep the game close, and eventually finish the game off.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent LHP Luis Avilan on a rehab assignment to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets activated RHP Zach Lee from the 7-day injured list.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/3-8)


Binghamton got off to a nice start to this game, putting two runs on the board in the top of the first, off the bat of a Luis Carpio single. Andrew Church gave the runs right back and then some, as Altoona scored one run in the second and four in the third putting them up 5-2 at the time. Both teams would score on more time each, but that hole proved to be too deep for the Rumble Ponies to dig out of.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/8-2)


St. Lucie continued their hot start to the second half of the season with a strong performance by a plethora of pitchers. The combination of Jake Simon, Darwin Ramos, Yeizo Campos, Carlos Hernandez, and Ezequiel Zabaleta were stellar, combining for three hits and 12 strikeouts over nine scoreless innings.

Matt Winaker drove in the first Mets run with a second inning single, Blake Tiberi continued the scoring with a double in the third, and Jeremy Vasquez capped off the scoring with a single in the fifth.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent LHP Joshua Walker on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets activated RHP Yeizo Campos from the 7-day injured list.

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


Christian James was let down by his offense in this loss, as he earned a loss despite putting together a quality start. He did not miss many bats, but he only gave up four hits over seven innings and did more than enough to keep his team in it. The Columbia bullpen continued that trend, as they did not surrender a run. The Fireflies offense struggled just as much, however, also netting just four hits in the game.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (7-5)


Jake Ortega gave Brooklyn a 1-0 lead in the fourth with an RBI single, and Luke Ritter extended that lead the next inning with a sacrifice fly. Dan Goggin promptly gave up that lead and then some, surrendering three runs in the bottom of the fifth. Anthony Dirocie tied it up with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning, making the score three apiece. Brooklyn wriggled out of a jam in the bottom of the ninth, as Abereen had the winning run on third base with no outs, but Brian Metoyer finagled his way through the inning. A two-out double by Jose Miguel Medina put the Cyclones ahead 4-3 in the top of the tenth. Luis Silva danced in and out of trouble in the bottom of the inning, as the winning run got in scoring position, but he eventually shut the door on what was a wild win.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jaison Vilera assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies sent 2B Sam Haggerty on a rehab assignment to Brooklyn Cyclones.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Corey Gaconi assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Kingsport Mets.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (6-3)


ROSTER ALERT: RHP Corey Gaconi assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Kingsport Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Josh Hejka assigned to Kingsport Mets

Rookie: GCL Mets (2-1)


The GCL Mets suffered their first lost of the season in a game in which the offense struggled mightily. They managed just three singles in the shutout loss, sprinkling just two walks and a hit by pitch on top of them. The offense simply was not there.

The pitching was not bad, as starter Joshua Walker — who was making a rehab appearance from Advanced-A St. Lucie — gave up two in the first but settled down in his other two innings of work. Zachary Hammer gave up two runs (though just one was earned) in three innings, and Liam McCall threw two scoreless frames. The pitching kept the team in the game, but the offense could not do much of anything.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent LHP Joshua Walker on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.
