Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (54-55)

SYRACUSE 4, PAWTUCKET 3 (BOX)

A dramatic, late inning rally propelled Syracuse past Pawtucket 4-3. Ervin Santana only had one blip, a three-run home run in the fourth, and was otherwise untouched for seven innings. The Met offense was quiet, however, and the game went to the bottom of the eighth with the Mets in a 3-0 hole. Luis Guillorme got two of those back with a two-run bomb, then Dilson Herrera scampered home on a wild pitch to tie the game. In the ninth, Guillorme came through again, lining a single to left that scored Rymer Liriano to secure the walkoff win.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/21-22)

GAME 1: BINGHAMTON 6, ERIE 3 / 7 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies beat up top prospect Casey Mize in game one of their doubleheader, scoring six runs against the former number-one overall pick. Andres Gimenez had one of his better games of the season, with a double, home run, and a walk. Patrick Mazeika and Will Toffey also both had two-hit games. On the pitching side, Kevin Smith was superb for six scoreless innings before Yeizo Camps made things interesting by giving up three runs in the ninth, but he ultimately stabilized and closed out the win.

GAME 2: ERIE 3, BINGHAMTON 0 / 7 (BOX)

Binghamton must have used up all their offense in game one, because they got shut out in the second game of the day. David Thompson, recently acquired Austin Bossart, and Gavin Cecchini were the only Rumble Ponies with hits, as the lineup struck out 11 time sin total. Joseph Shaw struggled for 3.1 innings, allowing all three Erie runs, and the offense squandered Joe Zanghi’s sterling relief effort.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/27-15)

ST. LUCIE 9, PALM BEACH 4 (BOX)

The Mets racked out fourteen hits and tallied nine runs in a big offensive win over Palm Beach. Jeremy Vazquez led the offense with a four hit day, putting up three RBI, while Wagner Lagrange had a three hit day of his own and scored three runs. St. Lucie did all their damage early, scoring one in the fist, five in the second, and three in the third, allowing Tylor Megill and Conner O’Neil to cruise to an easy win.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/16-23)

COLUMBIA 3, KANNAPOLIS 0 (BOX)

Columbia’s pitching had a tremendous day, allowing only three hits in a shutout victory. Jose Butto made a short but perfect start, and Alex Kisena kept the shutout going for the next five. Kisena actually gave up all three Kannapolis hits on the day, but also struck out six. Danny Hrbek and Allan Winans each tossed a scoreless inning to close out the win. On offense, Mark Vientos got the game started on a high note, launching a two-run home run to put the Fireflies up for good. Hayden Senger added a sacrifice fly in the fifth for some insurance.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (25-19)

LOWELL 3, BROOKLYN 1 (BOX)

The Cyclones struck out a whopping thirteen times in a 3-1 loss to the Lowell Spinners. Every offensive starter struck out at least once, and only four Cyclones tallied hits. Brooklyn’s pitching was almost equal to the task, with Matt Cleveland striking out eight over 4.2 scoreless innings. Andrew Edwards couldn’t continue the shutout, however, coughing up a run in the sixth and another in the seventh. Andrew Edwards gave up an extra run in the seventh, while Antoine Duplantis driving in the only run.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (17-23)

BLUEFIELD 7, KINGSPORT 5 (BOX)

Kingsport put themselves in an early hole, and a late inning rally came up just short. Christofer Dominguez was rocked for five runs on seven hits in only 2.2 innings, and his poor start put the Mets in a 5-2 hole. Two more runs scored against Brendan Hardy in the sixth, while Kingsport couldn’t score again until the eighth. Scott Ota hit a solo home run to get the deficit to four, and an error and a ground out produced two more runs in the ninth, but Wilfred Astudillo grounded out and Scott Ota popped out to end the game as the tying run at the plate.

Rookie: GCL Mets (18-13)

GCL METS 3, GCL ASTROS 1 (BOX)
