Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (51-52)


Both Syracuse and Indianapolis held each other scoreless through the first four innings of this one, before Indianapolis struck first in the top of the fifth, when Mets starter Ervin Santana served up a solo home run. Aaron Altherr made that deficit short lived, as he hit a home run of his own to tie it up at one in the bottom of the frame. An RBI double by Dilson Herrera and an RBI single by Gregor Blanco pushed the Mets ahead 3-1 in the sixth inning. Indianapolis got one back on an RBI double off Brooks Pounders in the eighth inning, but the Mets would hold them off to secure the win.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets released LHP P.J. Conlon.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/18-19)


Bowie got on the board first in this one, as Kevin Smith gave up a solo home run in the second. The Rumble Ponies did not answer until the fourth inning, when Ali Sanchez scampered home on a Gavin Cecchini sacrifice fly. That 1-1 score held until the seventh inning, when Sanchez put Binghamton ahead 2-1 with an RBI single. Stephen Villines quickly gave the lead up, however, allowing the run Blake Taylor left on base to score in the eighth inning. The offenses went quiet again. until Binghamton got up in the 11th inning. Luis Carpio bunted Andres Gimenez — the runner placed on second in extra innings — over to third base, and Quinn Brodey walked the game off with a sacrifice fly.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/24-13)


Matt Winaker was the entire St. Lucie offense in this one, as he was the only Met to have a multi-hit game, and he drove in both runs — the first on a solo home run in the second, and the second on an RBI double in the eighth. Tylor Megill had an up and down start, allowing two runs in both the second and third innings, with three scoreless innings around them. Those four runs would prove to be too deep a hole for the Mets to dig out of in this loss.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Alec Kisena assigned to Columbia Fireflies from St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets activated RHP Tylor Megill from the temporarily inactive list.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/17-19)


Columbia got put behind the eight ball early, as Augusta ran out to a 3-0 lead in the second inning when Jose Butto gave up a three run home run. Home runs by Jose Miguel Medina and Walter Rasquin in the second and third innings respectively cut the deficit to 3-2, but Augusta would tack another run on with a double steal of second and home in the fifth inning. Medina would get one back in the eighth inning with a single, but they could not find that elusive tying run.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Alec Kisena assigned to Columbia Fireflies from St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jared Biddy assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Columbia Fireflies.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (22-16)


Brooklyn got off to an incredible start offensively, scoring all nine of their runs in the first two innings. Luke Ritter opened the scoring with a single (though the run scored on an error on the play), and Antoine Duplantis drove the second run home with a ground out. Ritter scampered home on a wild pitch to make it 3-0, and a Jose Mena single plated the fourth and final run of the inning. They got right back at it in the second, as Duplantis drove in two runs with a single to make it 6-0. Joe Genord made it 7-0 with a double, and two runs scored on a throwing error made on a Mena ground ball.

The Cyclones pitchers strolled throughout the entire game. Matt Cleveland had a ho hum five inning, three run (two earned) start, and the Brooklyn bullpen was basically spotless saved for a run scoring on a passed ball in the ninth inning.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jared Biddy assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Columbia Fireflies.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (16-19)


Kingsport paid back Johnson City for their 7-1 and 11-3 blowout wins in yesterday’s doubleheader with a drubbing of their own in this one. The game started off as a pitcher’s duel, with both teams posting scoreless frames through four innings. Kingsport starter Cristofer Dominguez kept Johnson City off the board in the fifth inning, and Kingsport finally broke through in the bottom of the frame. Cristopher Pujols got the Mets on the board with an RBI single, with a second run scored on a throwing error by the Johnson City catcher, making it 2-0 Mets. That score would hold until the seventh inning, when reliever Brendan Hardy surrendered two runs — the first on a single, and the second with a bases loaded walk. Tanner Murphy would quickly give the lead back to the Mets with a single in the bottom of the seventh; a precursor to the Mets breaking the game open in the eighth. Francisco Alvarez pushed the lead to 4-2, and Jaylen Palmer delivered the dagger with a three-run home run, putting the finishing touches on a 7-2 win.

Rookie: GCL Mets (14-11)


ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jace Beck assigned to GCL Mets.
