Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (67-61)

SYRACUSE 2, LEHIGH VALLEY 1 (BOX)

Syracuse managed only five hits, but some excellent relief pitching and a steal of home pushed them to a win over the Iron Pigs. Arismendy Alcantara scored the first run of the game in the top of the first, dashing home on a walk to Rene Rivera for a steal of home. Drew Gagnon gave that run back during his 5.2 inning start, but Daniel Zamora, Matt Blackham, and Tyler Bashlor combined for 3.1 perfect innings of relief. That left the door open for Travis Taijeron, who drove in the game winning run with a single in the seventh. Brandon Nimmo got in a rehab start, playing centerfield and striking out once in three hitless at bats.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/26-37)

BOWIE 7, BINGHAMTON 6 / 10 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies suffered a brutal loss, blowing a save and ultimately losing in extras. Tommy Wilson gave up runs in each of the first four innings, but home runs from Patrick Mazeika and Gevin Cecchini led the Binghamton offense to a 6-5 lead. Stephen Vilines preserved kept the Rumble Ponies in the game with three scoreless innings before handing the ball to Joshua Torres. After a 1-2-3 bottom of the eighth, Torres gave up a game-tying home run to Brett Cumberland, then failed to record an out in the tenth as the Baysox got the walkoff run on a bunt.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/35-25)

CLEARWATER 2, ST. LUCIE 0 (BOX)

St. Lucie’s offense didn’t show up to the stadium in this one, and they were shutout by the Clearwater Threshers. Thomas Szapucki was solid for six innings, allowing only one run on five hits, a walk, and three strikeouts. Thomas McIlraith gave up another run in the seventh thanks to an error from Edgardo Fermin, who had a truly disastrous day in the field with three errors. No Met managed an extra base hit in the loss.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/26-32)

COLUMBIA 6, HICKORY 5 (BOX)

The Fireflies rallied in the ninth to top the Crawdads 6-5. Bryce Hutchinson was roughed up for five runs in his four inning start, putting Columbia in a big hole. Jose Miguel Medina got the offense going with an RBI single in the fourth, and Chase Chambers and Hayden Senger generated three runs in the sixth to cut the deficit to one. In the ninth, the Fireflies tied the game on a wild pitch, then took the lead on an infield single from Gerson Molina before Danny Hrbek locked down the win with a 1-2-3 bottom half.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (35-27)

NO GAME (ALL STAR BREAK)

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (30-31)

KINGSPORT 16, GREENEVILLE 12 (BOX)

The Mets rallied back from an eight run deficit to win a thriller in Greeneville 16-12. Christofer Dominguez and Ramon Guzman combined to allow nine runs in teh first tow innings, and the Mets only managed one run going into the fifth. The flood gates opened at that point; the Mets scored two in the fifth, one in the sixth, took the lead with an eight spot in the seventh, then added three four more critical insurance runs in the eighth and ninth. Five Mets had three hits, and every starter had at least one. Gregory Guerrero led the offense with a 3-for-5 day that included a homer and walk, continuing his return to prospect relevance.

Rookie: GCL Mets (26-22)

GCL METS 13, GCL MARLINS 4 (BOX)
