*All results from games played on July 3, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (41-44)


Another bullpen meltdown for Syracuse, as Paul Sewald and Daniel Zamora blew a lead in the eighth inning of a 6-3 loss. Drew Gagnong was solid for 5.2 innings, striking out eight and allowing only two runs. He left with a lead thanks to an RBI groundout from Ruben Tejada in the fifth. That lead held until the seventh, but Sewald record only one out while allowing two baserunners, and Zamora let both of those runners - as well as two of his own -to score. The Met offense went quietly the rest of the way.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/5-12)


Binghamton struck first in extra innings, but couldn’t make their lead stand up in a ten inning, 4-3 loss. David Peterson was solid for seven innings, striking out five and allowing two runs, and Binghamton rallied to get him off the hook thanks to RBI doubles from Andres Gimenez and Michael Paez in the seventh and eighth respectively. Both teams went scoreless in the ninth, and the game headed to extras, where Luis Carpio gave the Rumble Ponies a lead in the top half with an RBI single. Matt Blackham got two-thirds of the way there, but gave up a two-run bomb with two outs in the bottom of the tenth for the walkoff loss.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/9-7)


St. Lucie couldn’t hold up in a pitching duel, mustering only one run in a 2-1 defeat. Thomas Szapucki faced only three batters - ground out, single, error - before being lifted, which appears to be purely a pitch count issue rather than an injury. One of those runners scored (it was Wander Franco), but the bullpen was excellent the rest of the way, allowing only three more hits and one more run. Unfortunately, St. Lucie’s offense was anemic, managing only seven hits and a pair of walks, going 1-for-7 with RISP, and leaving eight men on base, which added up to only one run.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/7-7)


The Fireflies exploded for eight runs in the first and cruised to a 9-2 win over Greenville. The first five Columbia batters reached base, with Brian Sharp striking the first blow with a two-run home run. Sharp added an RBI single later in the inning as part of the barrage, as did Mark Vientos, who went 3-for-5 as his bat (hopefully) starts to heat up. Ronny Mauricio added the cherry on top in the third, launching his third home run of the season as part of his two hit, three run performance.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (11-7)


Brooklyn scored all of their runs in the final three innings, rallying for a 8-5 win over the Renegades. Ariel Yera got the Cyclones started with an RBI single in the seventh, and Joe Genord’s RBI double in the eighth along with Yoel Romero’s home run tied the game at four. Yeudy Colon gave the lead right back, but Brooklyn wasn’t done scoring; Sam Haggerty tied the game with a single, and Joe Genord put the Cyclones up with a three-run bomb, his fifth since being drafted. Colon didn’t cough that lead up.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (7-8)


Kingsport didn’t score until the ninth, at which point it was too late to overcome a seven run deficit. Benito Garcia was roughed up for four runs over 3.1 innings, and Yadiel Flores gave up two more runs in relief. Jaylen Palmer drove in the first run in the ninth with an infield single, and Christopher Pujols followed with an RBI single of his own. A passed ball and an RBI groundout gave the Mets two more runs, but that was as close as they’d get.

Rookie: GCL Mets (5-3)
