*All results from games played on August 19, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (65-61)

SYRACUSE 1, LEHIGH VALLEY 0 (BOX)

Corey Oswalt dominated in a shutout victory over Lehigh Valley. The right hander tossed seven shutout innings, allowing only four hits, and he got the win thanks to Rene Rivera’s fourth inning homer - the only run scored in the game. Stephen Nogosek got the save with two scoreless innings, while recent podcast topic Dilson Herrera went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/25-36)

BOWIE 11, BINGHAMTON 4 (BOX)

This was an ugly one all around, as the Rumble Ponies got shellacked by Bowie. David Peterson got through the first two innings but fell apart in the third, giving up seven runs on six hits and a walk, and he failed to escape the inning. That put Binghamton in a hole they wouldn’t get out of, but poor relief efforts from Joe Zanghi and Ryder Ryan, as well as a pair of errors from Andres Gimenez, didn’t help matters. Gimenez didn’t have a great day at the dish either, doubling once but striking out twice as well.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/35-23)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/25-31)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (35-27)

BROOKLYN 5, TRI-CITY 0 (BOX)

Brooklyn’s pitching was on point in this one, shutting out the Valley Cats in a 5-0 win. Nathan Jones got things started with three shutout innings, and Carey Gaconi followed with five strikeouts in this three innings of work. All told, the Cyclones rang up ten batters on the day, allowing only five hits and a pair of walks. The offense was driven by big performances from Gavin Garay and Jose Mena, both of who launched their second homers of the year.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (29-30)

KINGSPORT 8, DANVILLE 2 (BOX)

Home runs from two top prospects drove Kingsport to an 8-2 win. Gregory Guerrero, continuing his 2019 resurgence, went deep in the third as part of a three hit day, and first round pick Brett Baty launched his sixth homer of the season in the sixth. That backed a solid pitching performance from Andres Germa, who struck out five over six innings and allowed only two runs. La Tortuga Jr. went 0-for-5 with a pair of strikeouts in the win.

Rookie: GCL Mets (24-22)

GCL METS 11, GCL CARDINALS 1 (BOX)
