Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (57-56)


Harol’s second start in Syracuse went very much like his first: not great, not bad. He allowed three runs over five-plus innings, giving up two runs on solo home runs and another on a double down the line. Though he left the mound trailing, Syracuse took the lead before his replacement, Eric Hanhold, threw a pitch, allowing Harol to win his first Triple-A game. In the sixth, Danny Espinosa and Ruben Tejada both drove in runs on RBI hits, and Rene Rivera put an exclamation point on the inning with a two-run homer. In the eighth, the Syracuse offense plated six more runs, putting the game out of reach for the Herd.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/22-25)


For a second straight game, the Rumble Ponies got shut out by Akron. Binghamton was held scoreless over the final 21 innings of the weekend series, last scoring Friday night in the sixth inning. RubberDucks starter Scott Moss and relievers Kyle Dowdy and Argenis Angulo limited Binghamton to just three hits, but they allowed plenty of baserunners, walking seven batters. All in all, the Ponies went 0-14 with runners in scoring position. Tony Dibrell didn’t pitch that great and was tagged with his fourth loss since being promoted to Double-A. The right-hander has struggled since being promoted to Binghamton, posting an 8.69 ERA in 19.2 innings, but remains the Mets’ top right-handed pitching prospect.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/29-16)


Joe Cavallaro did not have his best stuff, but the offense had his back. They scored two runs in the third and two in the fourth, as opposed to Daytona’s one in the third and one in the fourth. Both teams scored a run apiece in the sixth, but the Tortugas scored an unanswered run in the seventh, giving St. Lucie a narrow one-run lead. Ezequiel Zabaleta pitched a clean eighth but made things interested in the ninth. After quickly notching two outs, he walked a batter and then allowed a single, putting the tying run at third and the winning run on first. Thankfully for St. Lucie, he got Lorenzo Cedrola to roll over one and ground out weakly to third, ending the ballgame.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/18-25)



The two teams traded runs and canceled each other out multiple times. The Colaflies scored a run in the top of the third, and the Suns scored a run in the bottom of the inning. The Colaflies scored three runs in the top of the fifth, and the Suns scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth. In the seventh, top prospects Ronny Mauricio and Mark Vientos both drove in runs, giving the Fireflies a 6-4 lead. In the bottom of the inning, Danny Hrbek blanked Hagerstown, and Allan Winans followed in the eighth and ninth, taking the first game of the doubleheader.



Most of the second game was played on Saturday. The game was suspended in the seventh inning, with the score tied 2-2. In the top of the eighth, Guillermo Granadillo led off the inning with a single, moved over to second on a sacrifice bunt, and came around to score on a Mark Vientos single. Justin Lasko pitched the rest of the ballgame and allowed just two baserunners- both bases on balls- to earn the win.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (26-22)


Luke Ritter put Brooklyn on the board in the fourth, scoring a pair of runs on a line drive into left and breaking up the pitching duel between Frank Valentino and Jose Conopoima. Jose Peroza added a run in the top of the eighth, giving Mitch Ragan a three-run lead to work with. In the bottom of the inning, gave up a few hits and he allowed a run to score, but notched two outs. His replacement, Dan Goggin, allowed both of his inherited runners to score, tying the game at 3-3. The Cyclones went down 1-2-3 against Anton Kuznetsov, Williamsport’s Russian-born relief pitcher, setting the stage for either a dramatic Crosscutters win or extra innings. With the bases loaded and two outs, Williamsport left fielder Johan Rojas singled back up the middle, walking off the ballgame.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (20-24)


After Burlington took an early 1-0 lead, Andres Regnault put them on top with a two-RBI double in the bottom of the third. Kingsport would stay in the lead until the bullpen let the lead slip away. Ramon Guzman allowed the tying run to score in the sixth, and then allowed Burlington to take the lead by allowing two more runs in the seventh.

Rookie: GCL Mets (18-14)
