Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (74-65)

SYRACUSE 7, ROCHESTER 3 / 9 (BOX)

With a playoff spot on the line, Syracuse had a late-inning second win, trouncing the Rochester Red Birds. Syracuse scored a few runs early, but Rochester tied the game up at 3-3 in the top of the seventh. They responded in the bottom of the inning with four runs, two on Syracuse hits and two on Rochester miscues. The game was delayed by rain in the bottom of the ninth and eventually called. With the win, Syracuse remains a game behind Scranton Wilkes-Barre. In order to stamp their ticket to the playoffs, Syracuse must win tonight, and Scranton must lose. The RailRiders are playing the Buffalo Bison, who are neck-and-neck in the standings with the Rochester Red Wings, so it is anyone’s guess who wins and goes to the playoffs.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/31-43)

HARTFORD 3, BINGHAMTON 2 (BOX)

It was a back-and-forth affair between the Rumble Ponies and the Yard Goats. In nine innings, Hartford ended up on top. If it went ten innings, maybe Binghamton would’ve pulled it out. Luc Rennie wasn’t bad, and neither was Yeizo Campos, but in the end, the offense just didn’t show up.

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

NO GAME (SEASON ENDED)

FINAL SEASON STATS

Low-A: Columbia Fireflies (24-42/28-41)

AUGUSTA 3, COLMBIA 2 (BOX)

Augusta scored a pair in the bottom of the first, but the Colaflies scratched out runs in the fourth and fifth to tie things back up. The Green Jackets plated another run in the bottom of the eighth and that was that.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (42-32)

BROOKLYN 5, STATEN ISLAND 4 (BOX)

What a game! Fighting for their playoff lives, the Cyclones came back in the ninth inning to beat Staten Island. Luke Ritter drove in a run in the top of the first to give Brooklyn an early lead, but Garrison Bryant allowed two in the bottom of the inning, putting the Cyclones behind the eight-ball. They nicked him in the third and fourth for a run apiece, widening their lead, but Brooklyn got those runs back. In the fifth, Kenedy Corona scored on a fielding error and in the sixth, Jake Ortega drove in a run. Still, going into the ninth, they were trailing their interboro rivals.

In the ninth, Staten Island had a meltdown. Corona led off the inning with a walk and took second on a wild pitch. Antoine Duplantis followed with a single, putting men on the corners. Jake Mangum singled, tying the game, and Duplantis later scored with Wilmer Reyes at the plate when Barrett Loseke uncorked another wild pitch. Nelson Lyon pitched the ninth and looked good, getting the Staten Island Yankees to go down 1-2-3.

With Aberdeen and Hudson Valley finishing up their series against each other tonight, Brooklyn needs to win in order to make the playoffs. Depending on how the Iron Birds/Renegades series goes, it might be as the wild card or it might be as the McNamara division winners, but regardless, tonight is a must for the Cyclones.
