*All results from games played on August 28, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (72-63)


The rehabbing Brandon Nimmo led Syracuse to an 8-3 win over the Iron Pigs. Nimmo played nine innings in the outfield, split between elft and center, while also hitting a two-run home run. Sam Haggerty was the other offensive standout, going 2-for-2 with a double and a pair of RBI. Nimmo and Haggerty’s offensive performance backed Harol Gonzalez, who tossed five innings of two run ball before handing things off to the bullpen.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/29-42)


Mickey Jannis supplied a Dickey-esque performance in a Binghamton win over the Sea Dogs. The knuckleballer tossed a complete game, striking out ten and allowing only four hits and a pair of runs. The offensive provided more than enough support, led by a three RBI day from Quinn brodey out of the leadoff spot. Patrick Mazeika also had a solid day, with a single and a double in four trips to the plate.

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


This was a close game until the end, but St. Lucie ultimately came up short in extras. Both teams scored a run in the first - a Carlos Cortes generated the run for the Mets - before settling in for eight scoreless innings. Joe Cavallaro struck out four and worked around a bevy of baserunners in his 6.1 inning start, but kept Daytona from scoring any further runs. Thomas McIlraith continued that success through the ninth, and St. Lucie generated another run on a ground-rule double from Manny Rodriguez. McIlraith couldn’t hold that lead however, recording only one out in the bottom half before being undone by a throwing error by Matt Winaker that led to two runs and a walkoff loss.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/28-35)


Columbia had a game to forget, committing a pair of errors and getting shutout by the Hickory Crawdads. Shervyen Newton had the roughest day, going hitless in four at bats while striking out once and committing an error. The shoddy defense didn’t directly contribute to any runs, but the pitching was poor regardless; Daison Acosta walked five in 5.2 innings and gave up six hits en route to three runs, while Jake Simon gave up three more in only 0.2 innings of relief work.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (40-30)


Brooklyn built a big lead, almost lost it, but ultimately hung on for a one run win over Aberdeen. The Cyclones racked up seven hits and six runs in the third inning to build a 7-0 lead, but Michel Otanez immediately gave three of those back. Brooklyn got another run in the top of the fourth, but Mitch Ragan gave up four runs in sixth to cut the lead down to one. Jake Mangum added the final run in the eighth with an RBI single, a run that proved critical when Nelson Leon gave up a run in the bottom half to again reduce the lead to one.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (34-34)


Kingsport’s 2019 came to an end in crushing fashion, as their loss to Johnson City coupled with Bristol’s win over Danville closed out the Appalachian League West Division. Junior Santos had a rough start, giving up a second inning grand slam to put Kingsport in a 4-0 hole. The Mets rallied back in the bottom of the third, tying the game on an RBI single from Andres Regnault and a three-run home run from Wilfred Astudillo. Santos couldn’t make good on his second chance either though, getting charged with two runs without recording an out in the top of the fourth. Ultimately, the game headed to the bottom of the ninth with Kingsport down 9-5. After a pair of strikeouts, a throwing error gave the Mets a bit more life, and Andres Regnault got Kingsport a bit closer with a two-run bomb. Astudillo followed with a strikeout, however, and the season-ending loss was complete.

Rookie: GCL Mets (29-24)
