Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (45-48)


Things looked bad for the Syracuse Mets going into the later innings. After trading runs, the RailRiders took a two run lead in the sixth on a Zach Zehner home run off of Ervin Santana. After going down without scoring in the seventh, Syracuse got to new reliever David Sosebee. The inning started with an error that allowed Rajai Davis to reach base. Aresmendy Alcantara doubled and Ruben Tejada followed that up with a game-tying, two-RBI single. One batter later, Rene Rivera homered, giving the Syracuse Mets a two-run lead, which Stephen Nogosek would protect in the ninth.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/12-14)


Barrett Barnes quickly gave Binghamton a 2-0 lead with a first inning homer and Tommy Wilson made it count by throwing six innings of scoreless ball. Joe Zanghi followed that with two innings of shutout ball of his own. Eric Hanhold was given the ball in the ninth but wasn’t able to keep the shutout going. He was fortunate to escape the inning just giving up a single run, as he loaded up the bases with just one out. Fortunately, after allowing a run after a force out, he was able to induce a ground ball to second to end the game.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/18-9)


We had ourselves a slugfest down at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium. St. Lucie jumped out to a quick 3-0 in the top of the first but the Blue Jays answered with three runs of their own in the bottom of the inning, knocking starter Kyle Wilson out of the game after recording just a single out. St. Lucie took the lead in the fourth on a Hansel Moreno triple, but Dunedin plated another three in the fifth, taking a 6-4 lead. It wouldn’t last long however, as Manny Rodriguez doubled in the top of the sixth and drove in Cody Bohanek and Matt Winaker, tying things at 6-6. The tie wouldn’t last long either, as Samad Taylor homered in the bottom of the inning to give Dunedin the lead, and then scored four more unanswered runs in the seventh and eighth.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/13-11)



The Colaflies took an early lead on a first inning Chase Chambers sac fly and added to it in the third when Hayden Senger drove in Mark Vientos with a flyball into right. Bryce Hutchinson, who relieved Jose Butto and his five innings of scoreless work, allowed a run in the sixth, but otherwise held things together to win the first game of the doubleheader and earn his second save of the season.



Daison Acosta, who did not exactly impress in his Columbia Fireflies debut, got a second chance and made an impression the second time around. The right-hander allowed three base runners over six innings of work, a single to the very first batter he faced and then a walk in the second and the sixth, while striking out a career-high nine. Brian Sharp put Columbia on the board in the third with a single, Shervyen Newton added to that with a solo homer in the fourth, Sharp tallied another RBI in the fifth, and Mark Vientos put an exclamation point on things with a two-run homer, his ninth of the season.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (16-13)


Brooklyn got on the board in the bottom of the second, scoring a run on an Antoine Duplantis sac fly and another on an RBI triple by catcher Ariel Mena. In the fourth, they added another, giving them a 3-0 edge. West Virginia finally got on the board in the eighth, preventing a shutout, but the Cyclones got that run right back in the bottom of the inning, with Jake Mangum scoring on a passed ball.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (13-12)


The surging Kingsport Mets won another one, winning their fifth in a row. Nate Peden started the game out strong, retiring his first nine batters, but the leadoff single he allowed in the fourth eventually came around the score, giving the Greeneville Reds a 1-0 edge. Kenny Taylor doubled in the sixth to lead off the inning and later came around to score on a Jaylen Palmer fielder’s choice, tying things up at 1-1, and one inning later, Jhoander Saez doubled in Gregory Guerrero to give Kingsport the lead. Benito Garcia, who already tossed two scoreless innings, threw a clean eighth, and Reyson Santos threw a clean ninth to end the game.

Rookie: GCL Mets (9-7)
