Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (73-65)

ROCHESTER 5, SYRACUSE 3 (BOX)

The devolution of Chris Flexen continued last night, and this time, the former top prospect’s struggles had a dire impact on Syracuse’s playoff hopes. The right-hander allowed four runs over an inning-plus of work. The Mets clawed back, scoring a pair of runs in the third and then another in the sixth, but their comeback ultimately did not amount to anything. With the loss, Syracuse’s elimination number dropped to two.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RHP Chris Mazza to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Walker Lockett from Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/31-42)

BINGHAMTON 4, HARTFORD 1 (BOX)

For the second straight start, Zach Lee was pretty damn good. Earlier in the week, he tossed seven plus innings against the Fisher Cats and allowed a single run. Last night, he tossed seven innings against the Yard Goats, shutting them out. Joshua Torres pitched the final two innings and allowed a run, but the Ponies already had a comfortable lead thanks to a two-run fourth and seventh.

Advanced-A: St. Lucie Mets (32-34/36-32)

NO GAME (SEASON ENDED)

FINAL SEASON STATS

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/28-40)

AUGUSTA 5, COLUMBIA 4 (BOX)

Augusta and Columbia had themselves a back and forth affair, but in the end, as has been the case for the majority of the season, the Fireflies just weren’t up to snuff.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (41-32)

BROOKLYN 11, STATEN ISLAND 2 (BOX)

Rewarded for his success in the GCL and just the general fact that he is a highly regarded pitching prospect, the 18-year-old Matthew Allan made his final start of the 2019 season as a Brooklyn Cyclone. He threw two innings, allowing a pair of runs, one in the first and one in the second. All in all, the right-hander was a bit hittable. His curveball and changeup both looked good, but he was a bit scattershot with his fastball control, leaving too many of them in the zone. The offense tied the game up in the fourth, and then really woke up late. They combined to score nine runs off of the Staten Island Yankees bullpen, plating two in the sixth and seven in the seventh. Luke Ritter drove in four and Joe Genord drove in five, with the latter hitting his ninth homer of the year, tying Travis Taijeron’s nine in 2011. With the win, Brooklyn finds themselves with a magic number of two, tied with the Aberdeen Iron Birds in the wild card standings and being a game behind the Hudson Valley Renegades.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent 2B Robinson Cano on a rehab assignment to Brooklyn Cyclones.

Rookie: Kingsport Mets (34-34)
