Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (59-60)

NORFOLK 3, SYRACUSE 0 (BOX)

Dilson Herrera, Gregor Blanco, and Arismendy Alcantara collected all six hits that the Mets accrued in the loss, as the trio all tallied three hits. The rest of the offense was kept hitless, as they could not solve the duo of Keegan Akin and Dillon Tate. Walker Lockett navigated his way to a quality start despite striking out just one and giving up ten hits, but he had no offense behind him.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/24-28)

HARTFORD 5, BINGHAMTON 2 (BOX)

The first four innings of this game were quiet, as Tony Dibrell held Hartford scoreless and Patrick Mazeika hit a fourth inning home run to give Binghamton a slight 1-0 lead. Dibrell would not be able to hold Hartford down, however, as a 1-0 lead turned into a 5-1 deficit after he surrendered three runs in the fifth inning and two runs in the sixth. A Luis Carpio single in the eighth made it 5-2 Hartford, but the Rumble Ponies could not complete the comeback.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/33-18)

DAYTONA 7, ST. LUCIE 4 / 7 (BOX)

The Mets’ defense and pitching staff struggled throughout this game, giving up seven runs in seven innings before the game was called due to unplayable field conditions. Starter Kyle Wilson threw two scoreless frames to open the game, but surrendered two runs in the third inning — the first on a single, and the second on a wild pitch — and one in the fourth, by way of a sacrifice fly. Thomas McIlraith was not much better, as he served up a three-run homer to further put the Mets behind. Marcel Renteria gave up the seventh run of the game in the seventh inning.

The Mets offense battled, scoring runs in the first inning (on a Jacob Zanon sacrifice fly), and the second inning (on a Wagner Lagrange single). They were held scoreless in innings three through six, and they went into the bottom of the seventh with a 7-2 deficit. A Jeremy Vasquez double and a Blake Tiberi single scratched two runs across to cut the deficit to 7-4, but they could not complete the comeback.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jaison Vilera assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets activated C Nick Meyer from the 7-day injured list.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/23-26)

COLUMBIA 5, GREENVILLE 4 (BOX)

Mark Vientos got the Fireflies on the board first, smashing a two-run double on a 3-0 pitch to give them a 2-0 lead in the third inning. Hayden Senger added another run with a double in the fourth, pushing the lead to 3-0. Greenville came storming back with a three run sixth inning, knotting the game at three, but the Fireflies quickly regained the lead with a Chandler Avant squeeze bunt. Greenville chased a run home in the eighth, tying the game again, this time a 4-4, a score which would hold until the bottom of the ninth.

Brian Sharp opened the bottom of the ninth with a walk. Mark Vientos reached on a throwing error, with Sharp moving to third. Chase Chambers finished off the game with a walk-off sacrifice fly, securing the 5-4 win.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (31-23)

BROOKLYN 11, STATEN ISLAND 4 (BOX)

Staten Island jumped out to a quick 3-0, as starter Matt Cleveland got tagged early. They added a run in the third, making it 4-0. The Brooklyn bullpen would keep the score the same, as the Yankees took a 4-0 lead into sixth inning, when the Cyclones offense woke up. Jose Peroza started the comeback with a double in the sixth, cutting the deficit to 4-1. The offense exploded in the seventh, with Luke Ritter driving in a run with a double, and Peroza tying the game up at four with his second double in as many innings. Joe Genord followed that up with a three-run homer, putting the Cyclones up 7-4. The offense did not stop there, as they tacked on more in the eighth inning. Peroza drove in another run with a bases loaded walk, and Genord capped off an incredible two innings for him with a three run double, putting the Yankees away 11-4.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jaison Vilera assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from St. Lucie Mets.
