Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (43-47)

SYRACUSE 4, SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE 2 (BOX)

The Mets had a tidy win in this one, mostly off the back of stellar pitching from Drew Gagnon, Stephen Nogosek, Jacob Rhame, and Tim Peterson. The quartet shut the RailRiders down, save for two solo home runs served up by starter Drew Gagnon. The offense did enough to support their pitchers; a two-run Travis Taijeron home run gave them a 2-1 lead in the second, and RBI singles by Gregor Blanco and Rymer Liriano gave the Mets enough insurance to finish the win.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/9-13)

GAME ONE: BINGHAMTON 3, PORTLAND 2 / 8 (BOX)

Binghamton eked out a win in game one of their (would be) doubleheader against Portland. It was a back and forth affair, with Portland and Binghamton trading runs until late in the game. The Sea Dogs got a run on David Peterson early, scoring one in the bottom of the first. A throwing error off a battled ball by Jason Krizan in the second got the game level, and a third inning Ali Sanchez single gave Binghamton a slight lead. It would be short lived, however, as Peterson surrendered a run on a ground ball in the bottom of the fifth. That 2-2 score would hold until the top of the eighth, when Gavin Cecchini put the Rumble Ponies ahead for good with an RBI double.

GAME TWO: BINGHAMTON 2, PORTLAND 0 / 4 (SUSPENDED, RAIN) (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies picked up where they left off in game two, with RBI doubles by Patrick Mazeika and Gavin Cecchini giving them a 2-0 lead. Joseph Shaw had a nice start to the game, throwing three scoreless innings.

The game, however, was suspended with no outs in the bottom of the fourth inning due to rain — ironic, considering it is a make up game due to a previous rain out.

The game will be continued prior to tomorrow’s regularly scheduled game. beginning at 5:30.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/16-8)

ST. LUCIE 7, JUPITER 4 / 10 (BOX)

St. Lucie found themselves down quickly, as a rough start by Dedniel Nunez saw them go down 4-1 after four innings. They began their comeback in the fifth inning, with Hansel Moreno scoring on a balk after a tripled, and Jacob Zanon hitting his seventh home run of the season, cutting the deficit to 4-3. An RBI double by Jeremy Vazquez in the eighth inning tied the game up at four. Jeremy Vazquez would outdo himself in extra innings, driving in three runs with a double to complete the comeback.

Not to be lost in this game are the performances of Joe Cavallaro and Marcel Renteria, who combined for five one-hit innings to keep the game within reach.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/11-10)

COLUMBIA 5, AUGUSTA 2 (BOX)

All of Columbia’s offense in this win came early on. Walter Rasquin got them on the board right away, hitting his first home run of the year to lead off the bottom of the first. They did the rest of the scoring in the third inning — the first three runs came off a throwing error on a ball hit by Mark Vientos, and the final one on a Hayden Senger single.

Those five runs were more than enough for the pitching staff, which was excellent from top to bottom, allowing just two RBI singles in the win.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (13-12)

POSTPONED, RAIN (MAKEUP JULY 12TH)

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (10-12)

KINGSPORT 8, PRINCETON 6 (BOX)

The Mets carried their strong offensive game yesterday into this one, but the pitching staff kept it close. Fransisco Alvarez and Brett Baty went back to back in the first inning, putting them up 2-0. A Jhoander Saez double made it 3-0 in the second inning. They continued it into the third, scoring two runs, the first on a Baty double and the second on a Wilfred Astudillo single, taking a 5-0 lead into the fourth. The Mets defense preceded to implode in the fourth inning, as the first two runs of the inning scored on errors, which set up a five run inning for Princeton. The defense struck again in the sixth, as an unearned run scored on a single to put the Mets down one.

Undeterred by their horrendous defense, they (funnily enough) tied the game on a defensive miscue, as Kennie Taylor scrambled home on a passed ball in the seventh. Saez drove in the game winning run(s) in the eighth inning by way of a two RBI double.

Rookie: GCL Mets (7-6)
