*All results from games played on July 4, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (42-44)


This win was defined by one half inning. The Mets entered the bottom of the sixth down 3-1, but the offense erupted for six runs to give them a permanent lead. Ruben Tejada jump started the offense with a three run homer to give them a 4-3 lead. A Travis Taijeron single put two more on the board, and Arismendy Alcantara capped off the big inning with a sacrifice fly, making it 7-3. The bullpen would leak two runs, but held on for the win.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets released RHP Louis Coleman.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets released RHP Casey Coleman.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/6-12)


The offense stayed quiet through the first three innings, but finally got on the board with a Patrick Mazeika home run in the bottom of the fourth. A Jason Krizan double and a Mazeika sacrifice fly made it put three runs on the board for Binghamton. David Thompson rounded out the scoring with an RBI single in the eighth.

That gave the pitching staff more than enough room to work with. Mickey Jannis tossed a quality start, allowing just the one run in the third. The bullpen threw three scorless innings to cap off the win.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/10-7)


The only run the Mets surrendered came by way of a single in the second inning, which actually put them down 1-0. The trio of Kyle Wilson, Joe Cavallaro, and Marcel Renteria were excellent outside of that blip, keeping the Daytona offense at bay.

The Mets offense quickly erased that deficit by scoring three runs in the third, by way of a Mitch Ghelfi single and a Jeremy Vazquez double. Blake Tiberi tacked on the final run of the game with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/8-7)


Columbia and Hickory traded runs early on, with Hayden Senger driving in a run in the top of the second, and Simeon Woods Richardson gave the run back in the bottom of the third with a wild pitch. That score held until the eighth inning, when the Fireflies opened it up. Ronny Mauricio put the first run on the board with a fielder’s choice, and Brian Sharp put the exclamation point on the inning with a three-run home run, making it 5-1. Bryce Hitchinson gave up a two-run single in the bottom of the eighth to shorten the lead to 5-3, and Billy Oxford worked around a walk and a single to close out the game in the ninth.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (11-8)


Garrison Bryant served up runs in the third and fourth innings to put Brooklyn in a 2-0 deficit, a score that held until the eighth inning. A Joe Genord double would tie the game up at two in that inning, and a scoreless ninth put the game into extras. Extra innings were not kind to Brooklyn, as reliever Brian Metoyer struggled in the tenth. A wild pitch, a ground out, another wild pitch, and a throwing error by catcher Ariel Yera all chased home runs, giving Aberdeen a 6-2 lead that they would not surrender.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (7-9)


Elizabethton and Kingsport traded runs early on, with Jaylen Palmer getting the Mets on the board in the first inning with a groundout, only to have Michael Otanez give up two runs in the bottom of the second to make it 2-1 Twins. A Tanner Murphy single knotted the game up at two, but it went downhill after that for the Mets. Brendan Hardy served up two runs in each of the sixth and seventh innings, and the Mets struggled to plate any more runs despite collecting seven hits, going a whopping 2-11 with runners in scoring position.

Rookie: GCL Mets (5-3)
