Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (67-61)

SYRACUSE 1, LEHIGH VALLEY 0 SUSPENDED / TOP 2 (BOX)

The game ended before it really began, as the game was washed out in the second inning. The highlight was that Jeff McNeil did Jeff McNeil things, getting hit by a pitch to lead off the game, stealing second base, and scoring on a Danny Espinosa two-out single.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Chris Flexen from Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Nick Rumbelow assigned to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent OF Jeff McNeil on a rehab assignment to Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/26-38)

NEW HAMPSHIRE 9, BINGHAMTON 4 (BOX)

The Binghamton pitching staff struggled in this one. They actually had an early lead, taking a 1-0 advantage into the third inning due to an Austin Bossart single. It quickly fell apart after that, as Tony Dibrell gave up two runs in the third and one in the fourth, putting Binghamton behind 3-1. A Quinn Brodey single pulled the Rumble Ponies to within one. New Hampshire promptly broke the game open, as two home runs off of Yeizo Campos in the fifth inning made it 6-2. Dustin Houle’s first home run of the season made it 6-4 in the eighth inning, cutting the deficit to 6-4, but Joseph Shaw gave up three runs to seal the loss.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/35-26)

CLEARWATER 5, ST. LUCIE 0 (BOX)

Jed Lowrie was the second of two Mets to make a rehab appearance yesterday, and he notched a third inning double, going 1-4 on the night. The Mets offense struggled as a whole, netting just five hits throughout the loss, leaving a whopping ten men on base. Luc Renne had a very rough start, getting hit around in four innings.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/26-33)

HICKORY 3, COLUMBIA 2 / 10 (BOX)

Columbia had plenty of chances to score more than two runs, leaving 14 men on base and amassing nine hits over ten innings. They scratched across two runs — one in the first inning, on a Chase Chambers sacrifice fly, and in the fifth inning on a Ronny Mauricio ground out. Hickory answered both runs quickly, with Jose Butto surrendering a run in the second inning, and Alec Kisena surrendering one in the sixth. That 2-2 score would hold until extra innings, where Columbia failed to get across the runner placed on second in the top of the tenth. Back to back bunts by Hickory got the placed runner to third, and scored him, leading to a tough loss for the Fireflies.

ROSTER ALERT: C Zak Whalin assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Kingsport Mets.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (35-28)

GAME ONE: CONNECTICUT 1, BROOKLYN 0 / 5 (BOX)

Broolyn had nothing going offensively in this rain shortened loss, as Joe Genord notched the only hit of the night, a fourth inning single, for the Cyclones. Frank Valentino was the hard luck loser, surrendering just one run, on a fourth inning double.

GAME TWO: POSTPONED (RAIN)

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (30-32)

GREENVILLE 10, KINGSPORT 0 (BOX)

Kingsport was shellacked in this one. They amassed a total of two hits, both singles, one by Brett Baty, and the other by Andres Regnault. On the pitching side, Benito Garcia and Brendan Hardy gave up ten runs in 3.1 innings pitched. The bullpen was great until the end of the game, but it was far too late.

ROSTER ALERT: C Zak Whalin assigned to Columbia Fireflies from Kingsport Mets.

Rookie: GCL Mets (26-23)

GCL NATIONALS 4, GCL METS 2 (BOX)
