*All results from games played on Saturday, July 27, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (53-52)


It was a high scoring affair, but Syracuse ended up on top, putting them back over .500. Luis Guillorme and Braxton Lee did the most damage, driving in three runs apiece. Brooks Pounders and Jacob Rhame did their best to give Toledo the lead, giving up a combined three runs in the eighth and ninth, but Rhame held on to close the book on the ballgame and notch his second save with Syracuse.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets selected the contract of CF Aaron Altherr from Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/20-19)


Tommy Wilson threw a gem, allowing a single run over seven innings, scattering four hits, walking none, and striking out nine. The one run he allowed came in the fourth, and for a while, it looked like the Baysox might actually make him a hard-luck loser. The Ponies finally broke through in the sixth, with Patrick Mazeika doubling into right, scoring Jason Krizan and tying the game. In the eighth, Krizan hit a sac fly that allowed Sam Haggerty to score, putting Binghamton in the driver’s seat. Joe Shaw, who threw a scoreless eighth, tossed a scoreless ninth, putting Binghamton back over .500 in the second half.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/25-14)


Bradenton took an early lead against St. Lucie, scoring two runs in the bottom of the first thanks to a Mason Martin double, but the Mets scratched back. In the fourth, Jeremy Vasquez hit a sac fly that scored Wagner Lagrange and put St. Lucie on the board. In the sixth, Dan Rizzie hit his first long ball of the year, tying the game at 2-2 apiece. Unfortunately, the tie wouldn’t last long, as Adrian Valerio hit the go-ahead run in the seventh, giving the Marauders a lead they would hold on to for the rest of the game.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Pablo Marinez assigned to St. Lucie Mets from DSL Mets2.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/15-21)


The Colaflies took a big lead early on, with Chase Chambers driving in a run in the first and Gerson Molina and Ronny Mauricio combining to plate three in the second, but Jaison Vilera gave three of those four runs back in the fourth and Conner O’Neil gave up the fourth in the fifth. O’Neil’s struggles continued into the sixth, and the right-hander gave up four more runs. The offense only got a handful of batters on base after the Suns took the lead, struggling against the Hagerstown bullpen. Not a recipe to win.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies activated RHP Jose Moreno from the 7-day injured list.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Justin Lasko assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from Columbia Fireflies.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (24-16)


The Cyclones took their fourth in a row, doing the majority of their damage early on. In the first, with runners on first and second, Jose Peroza hit a line drive into center that scored Yoel Romero, the lead runner. Joe Genord stepped up next and launched his first home run since July 3rd, plating three more runs. Being given a big lead early must’ve taken away some of Michel Otanez Brooklyn debut jitters, and the right-hander looked good. Reportedly touching 97 multiple times, he allowed a single run in five innings of work, a solo home run to the second batter he faced. The bullpen kept the Lake Monsters at bay, and Antoine Duplantis even got that one run back in the ninth, hitting an RBI double.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (17-20)


Kingsport narrowly took game two of the Apple-Achian Series thank to a clutch eighth inning sac fly by Andres Regnault. Pulaski and Kingsport traded runs, with both teams scoring in the sixth and seventh. After Jefferson Escorcha tossed a scoreless eighth, Kenny Taylor led off the bottom of the inning with a single, and Brett Baty followed that with a walk. Jaylen Palmer moved the runners over with a ground out, setting the stage for Regnault to put them ahead.

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

Rookie: GCL Mets (16-11)


ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets sent C Mitch Ghelfi on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.
