Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (50-49)

TOLEDO 7, SYRACUSE 2 (BOX)

Toledo took an early lead and had a big fifth inning, scoring four runs off of Drew Gagnon in addition to the run they scored in the first and second. Colton Plaia got Syracuse on the board in the sixth with a sac fly, and Ruben Tejada plated another run in the seventh, but it was too little, too late- especially when the Mud Hens got one of those runs back in the eighth.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/15-17)

BINGHAMTON 4, AKRON 1 (BOX)

Harol Gonzalez twirled one of his best starts this season, limiting the RubberDucks to a single run over six innings. The Ponies, meanwhile, touched up Tanner Tully for a couple of runs, a second inning Gavin Cecchini RBI single and a fourth inning Cheech sac fly. Harol’s lone blemish came in the fifth, when he allowed an RBI single, but Binghamton got that run back and then some in the eighth when Andres Gimenez tripled and drove in David Thompson and Barrett Barnes.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies activated 3B Will Toffey from the 7-day injured list.

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed RHP Ryder Ryan on the temporarily inactive list.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Austin McGeorge assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/21-12)

ST. LUCIE 6, CLEARWATER 3 (BOX)

It was a back-and-forth affair, but St. Lucie pulled ahead late after they got to the Threshers bullpen. In the sixth, with the score tied 2-2, Clearwater initially pulled ahead thanks to a Manny Rodriguez error. In the bottom of the inning, Matt Winaker doubled, driving in Carlos Cortes and Jeremy Vasquez, giving St. Lucie the lead. Cortes added another run in the seventh, and in the eighth, Manny redeemed himself a bit with an RBI single.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed RHP Tylor Megill on the temporarily inactive list.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/14-17)

GREENVILLE 16, COLUMBIA 5 (BOX)

It was not a good afternoon for the Columbia pitching staff. Jaison Vilera got touched up for five runs in three-plus innings. Jake Simon followed and he allowed a pair of runs before getting his two outs. Nelson Lyon only lasted two outs and allowed four runs and Cole Gordon gave up three runs in two innings. Ironically, infielder Brian Sharp was the best man Pedro Lopez had pitch, as he allowed just two hits and a single run in his inning plus of work.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (20-15)

CONNECTICUT 3, BROOKLYN 2 (BOX)

Wilmer Reyes doubled in Jake Mangum in the top of the first, giving the Cyclones a quick 1-0 lead. Raul Beracierta added another run in the fifth when he doubled in Ariel Yera, and with Garrison Bryant on the mound and cruising, it looked like the Cyclones had this one in the bag. In the bottom of the ninth, Brian Metoyer walked Ryan Kreider and Eliezer Alfonzo to lead off the inning. After getting that crucial first out, he allowed a single, tying the game at 2-2. After intentionally walking Jordan Vernon to set up the double play, Eric De La Rosa grounded into a force out that allowed the winning run to score.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (15-17)

KINGSPORT 7, BRISTOL 6 (BOX)

Last night’s game in Bristol came down to the wire. Both teams scored two runs in the second, but Kingsport jumped out to a big lead in the third, when they plated four runs. The Pirates chipped away, scoring two runs in the fourth and then one in the fifth to make it a 6-5 ballgame. The game stayed tied for the next few innings until the ninth, when Wilfred Astudillo singled in Brett Baty, giving Kingsport a very important insurance run. In the bottom of the inning, Reyson Santos replaced Jefferson Escorcha and ran into trouble, allowing a run on back-to-back wild pitches. Luckily, with the tying run at second, he reached back and was able to induce a game-ending groundball.

Rookie: GCL Mets (12-9)

GCL ASTROS 9, GCL METS 8 (BOX)
