Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (47-48)

The Syracuse Mets struck first in yesterday evening’s game against the Indianapolis Indians. Rajai Davis tripled to open up the game, and later scored on a ground out off the bat of Danny Espinosa. Indianapolis evened the score in the bottom of the second, when Will Craig homered off of Drew Gagnon. The game remained tied at one until the top of the fifth inning, when old friend Ruben Tejada singled home two runs to give Syracuse a 3-1 lead. Indianapolis got a run back in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI single, again from WIll Craig, off of Gagnon. Syracuse broke the game open in the top of the seventh, when Ruben Tejada continued to torment International League pitching and drove in two runs on a double to left field.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/18-10)
CHARLOTTE 2, ST. LUCIE 1 (BOX)
The St. Lucie Mets lost a close game to the Charlotte Stone Crabs on Tuesday evening. Charlotte scored a run in the top of the first off of Thomas Szapucki, and St. Lucie evened the score in the next half inning on an RBI single from Carlos Cortes. Szapucki generally pitched pretty well in his third start since being promoted to the Florida State League. Szapucki struck out seven in 4.2 innings, and allowed just two earned runs on four hits and two walks in his longest outing of the season so far. The game remained tied until the fifth inning, when Wander Franco, the consensus top prospect in baseball, homered off of Szapucki to give the Stone Crabs a 2-1 lead. The St. Lucie Mets were unable to get much going offensively from there, and ended up losing to the Charlotte Stone Crabs 2-1.
