Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (50-49)

SYRACUSE 11, TOLEDO 5 (BOX)

Syracuse beat of the Toledo Mud Hens, really choking the chickens. Dilson Herrera, Danny Espinosa, Rene Rivera, and Aaron Altherr all hit home runs, with Dilson smashing two to reach the twenty-plus homer run mark for the first time in his career. Corey Oswalt was solid in his six innings, as all of his runs allowed were unearned.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RHP Jacob Rhame to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Walker Lockett from Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/14-17)

BINGHAMTON 8, AKRON 2 (BOX)

With the exception of Gavin Cecchini’s sac fly in the fourth, every single Rumble Pony run from yesterday’s ballgame came via the longball. Patrick Mazeika got things started in the first with a solo homer to make it a 1-0 game. In the fifth, with the score 2-0, Quinn Brodey led off the inning with a homer to make it 3-0. After Sam Haggerty made the inning’s first out, Jason Krizan, Patrick Mazeika, and David Thompson hit three solo homers in a row, making it a 6-0 ballgame. The RubberDucks scored a pair in the sixth, but those runs barely put a dent in Binghamton’s lead, and the Ponies got them back in the ninth, when Luis Carpio hit a two-run shot.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/20-12)

CLEARWATER 3, ST. LUCIE 0 (BOX)

All three runs of the ballgame- all Threshers runs, unfortunately- came in the fifth inning. Tylor Megill didn’t so much fall apart as Clearwater came through with a handful of key hits.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/14-16)

COLUMBIA 6, GREENVILLE 3 (BOX)

The Drive got to Daison Acosta early, scoring a run in the first, but the Colaflies bailed him out by plating two in the third and three in the fifth. Conner O’Neil and Danny Hrbek both allowed runs, but the bulge the offense built up for them was more than enough.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (20-14)

BROOKLYN 6, CONNECTICUT 1 (BOX)

The Tigers tagged Matt Cleveland with a first inning run, but that would be the only one that not only he would give up on the evening, but it would end up being the only run the Tigers would manage. The Cyclones roared to life in the fifth, plating three runs from hits by Chandler Avant and Wilmer Reyes, and scoring two from bases loaded walks to Nic Gaddis and Ariel Yera. Wilmer Reyes added another two in the eighth with a two-run homer, putting the death knell to the Tigers.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Josh Hejka assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Kingsport Mets.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (14-17)

BRISTOL 3, KINGSPORT 0 (BOX)

Kingsport went from winning five in a row last week, and now, with their loss to Bristol, dropped their fourth in a row and counting. Wilfred Astudillo’s solo homer in the second initially put Kingsport on top, but the Pirates tied it back up in the bottom of the inning. Michel Otanez then gave up a pair of runs in the bottom of the third, and that ended up being the ballgame, as starter Luis Ortiz and reliever Yoelvis Reyes handcuffed the offense.

Rookie: GCL Mets (12-8)

GCL CARDINALS 3, GCL METS 0 (BOX)

Star of the Night

Patrick Mazeika

Goat of the Night
