Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (68-62)

ROCHESTER 6, SYRACUSE 2 (BOX)

Well, there goes that. Syracuse had a nine-game winning streak, but it come to an end thanks to some crummy pitching on the part of Ervin Santana and an offense that struggled against the assortment of pitchers that the Red Wings sent to the mound, including former Syracuse Met Ryan O’Rourke.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/27-39)

BINGHAMTON 4, NEW HAMPSHIRE 2 (BOX)

Andres Gimenez hit a two-run homer in the first, his eighth of the year, to give Binghamton a quick 2-0 lead, but the Fisher Cats got the runs right back in the second. The game stayed tied 2-2 until the eighth, when Austin Bossart hit a double into center that drove in Edgardo Fermin and Patrick Mazeika.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/35-28)

JUPITER 5, ST. LUCIE 0 (BOX)

Another day, another loss for St. Lucie. This time, they got shut out by Dustin Beggs and relievers Cason Sherrod and C.J. Carter. The team had plenty of opportunities to score, as they managed eight baserunners, but went 0-5 with runners in scoring position. A very good start by Tylor Megill was wasted in this loss as well. Since transitioning into starting, the right-hander has been hit or miss, but has racked up the strikeouts.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/27-34)

ROME 4, COLUMBIA 3 (BOX)

Chandler Avant gave Columbia the lead in the top of the fifth on a triple, and Chase Chambers drove in two more in the sixth, but Collin Holderman and Justin Lasko combined to implode in the sixth, coughing up the lead.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (37-29)

CONNECTICUT 6, BROOKLYN 5 (BOX)

This was a tough one. Brooklyn is in the playoff hunt and every win matters. After jumping out to an early 2-0 and then losing it, the Cyclones plated three runs in the fourth to retake the lead on a Jose Peroza homer. Connecticut then chipped away, scoring two in the eighth to make it 5-4, and then another two in the ninth to walk it off and win 6-5.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (32-32)

KINGSPORT 9, BLUEFIELD 2 (BOX)

Kingsport needed a win and man, did they get it. Scott Ota hit a solo homer in the second to give Kingsport the lead, but Andres German gave up a solo homer in the third. Francisco Alvarez hit a solo homer in the third to give the Mets the lead for a second time, and then things went crazy. Kingsport scored seven runs in the bottom of the sixth, all on home runs. Alvarez hit a second homer, Tanner Murphy hit a homer, and Christopher Pujols hit a grand slam. The Bluefield Blue Jays scored a second run after that offensive flurry, but in the end, it wouldn’t matter.

Rookie: GCL Mets (27-23)

GCL METS 8, GCL CARDINALS 5 (BOX)

Star of the Night

Francisco Alvarez

Goat of the Night

Matt Mullenbach
