Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (75-65)

SYRACUSE 8, ROCHESTER 4 (BOX)

Harol Gonzalez and the offense led the Mets to a win in their final game of their regular season over the Rochester Red Wings. Jason Krizan got the offense rolling with an RBI double in the first, and Aaron Altherr added another run in the second with his own double. Gonzalez gave up a run in the fourth, but Arismendy Alcantara got that run right back with a home run, and Syracuse poured on four more runs in the top of the seventh. Those runs proved critical, as Adonis Uceta and Tim Peterson stumbled in the late innings, but the Mets ultimately hung on for the win. The victory forces a one-game playoff with the Scranton Wilkes-Barre RailRiders for the International League North Division championship, which will take place tomorrow afternoon.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (35-29/32-43)

BINGHAMTON 4, HARTFORD 3 (BOX)

Binghamton won the battle of the oddly-named animals, topping the Yard Goats 4-3 to close out their regular season. The middle infield had a banner day, with Andres Gimenez and Luis Carpio both going deep and combining to go 4-for-8 with a pair of runs and RBI. Edgardo Fermin also had a good final day, tallying two doubles in four at bats. That was more than enough support for Binghamton’s all time wins leader Mickey Jannis, who struck out seven in 6.2 innings and allowed only two runs. Tony Dibrell allowed one run in relief, but the bullpen ultimately stabilized to preserve the win.

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

NO GAME (SEASON ENDED)

FINAL SEASON STATS

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

AUGUSTA 6, COLUMBIA 5 (BOX)

Columbia stumbled in their final game of the season, committing three errors en route to a final loss in what has been a disappointing year. The offense pumped out plenty of extra base hits - a double, two triples, and a homer - and five runs, but the pitching was suspect and suspect defense around the infield didn’t help. Daison Acosta struggled, giving up five runs in five innings, one of which was unearned. Still, the game was tied heading to the sixth before Justin Lasko gave up another run, and the Fireflies couldn’t score again in the final third of the game.

Short-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (43-32)

BROOKLYN 4, STATEN ISLAND 1 (BOX)

The Cyclones punched their ticket to the postseason, shutting down the Staten Island Yankees to clinch their first McNamara Division title since 2010, and head to the playoffs for the first time since 2012. Frank Valentino was the star of the day, striking out nine in 5.1 innings and surrendering a single run. A trio of relievers combined for 3.2 innings of scoreless relief, blowing away seven more Yankees along the way. On offense, Wilmer Reyes starred, going 2-for-3 with a double and a walk, while Luke Ritter tallied two RBI on a double. First round pick Brett Baty started at third and tallied a single and two walks before departing late in the game.
