*All results from games played on August 5, 2019

Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (57-56)

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

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

NO GAME (SCHEDULE)

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/30-16)

ST. LUCIE 4, FORT MYERS 2 (BOX)

St. Lucie built a run in the middle-innings and hung on through some bullpen stumbles, topping the Fort Myers Miracle 4-2. Cody Bohanek managed to come home on a caught stealing in the fifth, and Edgardo Fermin, Dan Rizzie, and Manny Rodriguez tallied RBIs in a three-run sixth. Carlos Hernandez was tasked with protecting the lead in relief of Tylor Megill, but he coughed up two runs over his 1.2 innings of work. Thomas McIlraith came in and was much better, allowing only one hit in two innings to secure the save.

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/19-25)

COLUMBIA 3, HAGERSTOWN 1 (BOX)

Columbia came out on top in a pitcher’s duel, topping Hagerstown 3-1. Both sides only had four hits, but three of the Fireflies’ went for extra bases. Jose Miguel Medina got Columbia on the board with a second-inning home run, and doubles from Chase Chambers and Hayden Senger set the table for runs in the fourth and fifth. Jose Butto was perfect in a two-inning start, and Alec Kisena followed with eight innings of one-run ball. Jose Moreno got the first shot at the save, but recorded only one out in three batters before being replaced by Cole Gordon, who closed things out.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (27-22)

BROOKLYN CYCLONES 3, HUDSON VALLEY 2 (BOX)

Brooklyn lost an early lead by rallied back to win in the seventh, just like the major league squad. Luke Ritter got the Cyclones out to a 1-0 lead in the second, and that was the only run until the sixth. Matt Cleveland made that lead stand up until then, but eventually cracked and left with the game tied. Andrew Edwards then allowed a homer in the top of the seventh that gave Hudson Valley the lead. The Cyclones stormed back in the bottom half however, with Jose Peroza driving in two with a single. Edwards and Matt Mullenbach made that one-run lead stand up to secure the comeback win.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (21-24)

KINGSPORT 7, ELIZABETHTON 5 (BOX)

Scott Ota had his best day yet as a pro, carrying the Kingsport offense en route to a 7-5 win. The Mets were in a 2-0 whole headed to the bottom of the fourth, but Jaylen Palmer drove in Brett Baty with a sacrifice fly before Scott Ota launched his first home-run of the day, a two-run shot. Two innings later, Elizabethton tied the game, but Ota came through again with a two-run double. Ota capped his day with a solo home run in the eighth to add some insurance, which was almost needed when Reyson Santos gave up two solo homers in the ninth before stabilizing and closing things out.

Rookie: GCL Mets (18-15)

GCL ASTROS 4, GCL METS 2 (BOX)
