Triple-A - Syracuse Mets (30-30)


The Syracuse Mets scored almost immediately in Friday evening’s game against the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, when newly acquired Matt Kemp hit a two run homer in the first inning. That proved to be all of the offense the Mets would need to beat the RailRiders, as Chris Flexen held the RailRiders to just one run in six innings. Flexen did run into some trouble in the bottom of the fourth, when he walked the first two hitters he faced in the inning, but got bailed out when Dilson Herrera and Ruben Tejada turned the first triple play in Syracuse franchise history since 2012. Flexen allowed a solo homer to Scranton’s Trey Amburgey in the bottom of the fifth, but Syracuse got the run back in the top of the ninth on an RBI double from Luis Guillorme. The Syracuse Mets ended up defeating the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 3-1.

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (31-24)


The Binghamton Rumble Ponies fell behind early in Friday evening’s game against the Hartford Yard Goats. Harol Gonzalez allowed a two-run homer to Hartford’s Colton Welker in the bottom of the first inning. Binghamton evened the score in the top of the second, when Luis Carpio drove in two on a ground-rule double, and took the lead later in the inning on an RBI single from Jason Krizan. The Binghamton lead didn’t last long, as Harol Gonzalez allowed two solo homers in the bottom half of the second inning to put Binghamton behind 4-3. Binghamton again tied the game in the top of the seventh on a solo shot from Jason Krizan. Joe Zanghi came into the game to relieve Gonzalez to start the bottom half of the seventh, and the game quickly fell out of reach from there. Zanghi allowed the go-ahead run to score on an RBI single from Hartford’s Mylz Jones, and allowed two more to score on a double from Hartford’s Colton Welker. The Hartford Yard Goats added an insurance run in the bottom of the eighth off of Jake Simon, and ultimately defeated the Binghamton Rumble Ponies 8-4.

ROSTER ALERT: The Binghamton Rumble Ponies have released outfielder Dario Pizzano.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (30-30)


Friday evening’s game between the St. Lucie Mets and the Lakeland Tigers was largely a pitcher’s duel until late in the game. St. Lucie struggled to get much of anything going offensively, managing just three hits and four walks, and striking out 12 times, against the dominant Lakeland pitching staff. Kyle Wilson cruised through the first six innings for St. Lucie, before running into trouble in the seventh inning, when he allowed the only runs of the game to score on a two-run homer from Lakeland’s Dylan Rosa. Marcel Renteria contributed 1.1 scoreless innings of relief to keep the game close, but the damaged had already been done. The St. Lucie Mets were unable to get much going offensively in the final few innings, and ultimately lost to the Lakeland Tigers 2-0.

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (23-36)
