*All results from games played on August 15, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (61-61)

SYRACUSE 5, DURHAM 3 (BOX)

The Bulls put the first run on the board in the third, and took a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the fourth — when the Mets offense woke up after three scoreless frames. Dilson Herrera tied up the game with a solo shot, and Danny Espinosa gave the Mets a 3-1 lead with a home run of his own, following a Rene Rivera walk. Herrera would follow up his fourth inning homer with a two-run home run in the fifth inning, pushing the lead to 5-1. Brooks Pounders would surrender two runs in the sixth to make it 5-3, but Donnie Hart, Stephen Nogosek and Tyler Bashlor would twirl three scoreless innings to secure the win.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/25-32)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 1, BINGHAMTON 0 / 7 (BOX)

Tommy Wilson was a tough luck loser in this rain shortened affair. He was excellent over seven innings, striking out seven, allowing just two hits, and walking one. He surrendered a run on a sacrifice fly in the top of the first, which would stand to be the only run of the game.

The Binghamton offense did him no favors, leaving eight men on base and going 0-7 with runners in scoring position, getting shut down by New Hampshire for the second game in a row. They had their chances to tie the game and take the lead, but simply could not capitalize.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/35-19)

CANCELLED (RAIN)

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/24-29)

COLUMBIA 3, ROME 1 (BOX)

Bryce Hutchinson and Justin Lasko were brilliant, holding the Braves to just one run throughout the course of the game, coming on an RBI single in the fourth.

The Fireflies offense was held in check for the vast majority of the game, as they were held scoreless through seven innings. They finally turned it around in the eighth inning, where they put up three runs to give themselves a permanent lead. Brian Sharp started the scoring for Columbia with a game-tying RBI single, and Jose Miguel Medina put the capper on the tiny comeback with a two-run single to put them ahead 3-1.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Nick Conti assigned to Columbia Fireflies from GCL Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies sent C Juan Uriarte on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (32-26)

VERMONT 6, BROOKLYN 4 (BOX)

Brooklyn ran out to an early lead, scoring thee runs in the top of the first inning. An RBI double by Luke Ritter opened the scoring, and a two run home run by Jose Peroza capped the inning. Starter Frank Valentino would give a run back in the bottom of the second, but Joe Genord would provide some cushion of his own, hitting a solo homer in the third inning to make it 4-1. That lead would hold until the sixth inning, when the bullpen collapse began in earnest. Dan Goggin surrendered three runs in his second inning of work, turning a 4-1 lead into a tied game. Nelson Leon came in to relieve him in the eighth inning, and promptly surrendered a two run homer to put the Cyclones behind 6-4. The Cyclones could not fight back, going down in order in the ninth inning.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (26-29)

PULASKI 8, KINGSPORT 2 (BOX)

This game started out in nightmare-ish fashion for the Mets, as starter Cesar Loaiza walked the bases loaded to open the game. A sacrifice fly gave the Yankees a early lead, and a single ended Loaiza’s day after he recorded one out and left the bases loaded. Luis Silva was not much better, hitting the first batter he faced, making it 2-0, and allowed a two run double to put the Mets in a 4-0 hole. That deficit would double in the second inning, as two errors and three run home run made it 8-0 Yankees, effectively ending the game before it really began.

The Mets bullpen did a nice job of holding the Yankees scoreless afterwords, and a Cristopher Pujols single and a wild pitch put two runs on the board for the Mets, but the first two innings proved to be the game.

Rookie: GCL Mets (21-21)

GCL METS 4, GCL ASTROS 2 (BOX)

ROSTER ALERT: Columbia Fireflies sent C Juan Uriarte on a rehab assignment to GCL Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Nick Conti assigned to Columbia Fireflies from GCL Mets.
