*All results from games played on July 15. 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (46-48)

SYRACUSE 20, INDIANAPOLIS 1 (BOX)

Syracuse exploded with one of the biggest offensive performances you’ll see, posting a whopping 20 runs. The Mets tallied seven home runs in total; two from Rene Rivera, two from Travis Taijeron, and one each from Danny Espinosa, Dilson Herrera, and Arismendy Alcantara. Alcantara finished a double shy of the cycle with a 4-for-4 day. The pitching performance was almost totally irrelevant, but Corey Oswalt allowed only one run over six innings before Brooks Pounders, Ryan O’Rourke, and Chris Flexen each tallied a scoreless inning of relief.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/12-15)

READING 4, BINGHAMTON 1 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies managed only four hits in a quiet loss to the Reading Fightin Phils. Braxton Lee had the only extra base hit for Binghamton on the day and scored on Patrick Mazeika’s RBI single. Harol Gonzalez was left hanging by the weak offensive performance, and his six innings of one-run ball went wasted. Ryder Ryan gave up two runs in relief to take the loss, while Adonis Uceta gave up a meaningless run in the ninth.

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/13-12)

WEST VIRGINIA 5, COLUMBIA 0 (BOX)

Columbia’s offense didn’t show up to this game, managing only two hits in a shutout loss. Ronny Mauricio’s 6th inning double and Gerson Molina’s single were the only hits, to go with one walk from Brian Sharp. On the pitching side, Christian James wasn’t much better than the offense, giving up four runs on eight hits in five innings to take the loss. Cole Gordon gave up an unearned run in the seventh thanks to an error from Ronny Mauricio.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (17-13)

BROOKLYN 4, WEST VIRGINIA 0 (BOX)

Anthony Dirocie was the star of a shutout victory over the West Virginia Black Bears. The right fielder went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run, three RBI, and a stolen base, producing the majority of the Cyclones’ offense. That was more than enough support for Garrison Bryant, who struck out seven over a five inning start, allowing only two hits and two walks. Corey Gaconi, Jared Biddy, and Just Lasko kept the shutout going, combining to strikeout three and only walk two over four innings of relief.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (13-13)

GREENEVILLE 5, KINGSPORT 2 (BOX)

Kingsport’s offense was quiet in a 5-2 loss to the Greeneville Reds. With Francisco Alvarez on the bench and Adrian Hernandez and Stanley Consuegra both still out with injury the only top prospect in the lineup was first-round pick Brett Baty, who went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Six Kingsport pitchers appeared in this game, with Hector Rodriguez posting the only unsightly line; he gave up three runs on two walks and a hit while recording only two outs.

Rookie: GCL Mets (10-7)

GCL METS 11, GCL CARDINALS 7 (BOX)

Star of the Night

Travis Taijeron

Goat of the Night
