Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (1-5)


The only Syracuse pitcher to have a scoreless ledger on the afternoon isn’t even a pitcher. Catcher Bruce Maxwell, the second position player that was called upon to pitch for Syracuse in this series, recorded the last out of the ballgame, allowing a hit. He technically did allow a run, a Trey Amburgey two-run double, but the run that scored was charged to Sam McWilliams, leaving Maxwell with a perfectly shiny 0.00 ERA. At one point of this high scoring affair, Syracuse actually had the lead, but the recently optioned Trevor Hildenberger imploded in the sixth and the rest of the bullpen didn’t do much better.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RHP Trevor Hildenberger to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Drew Smith from Syracuse Mets.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (4-2)


The Hammerheads got to starter Joander Suarez early, scoring a run off of him in the first and another three in the second, but the right-hander settled down and kept his club in the game. In the third, Francisco Alvarez and Jaylen Palmer got two of those runs back with an RBI double and sac fly, respectively, and in the fourth, Pete Crow-Armstrong singled past down the third base line that drove in two more and tied things up at 4 apiece. One batter later, shortstop Nasim Nunez bobbled a ground ball Shervyen Newton hit at him, allowing Cole Kleszcz to cross the plate, giving the Mets the lead. They did not hold onto it long, as the dynamic rising Cuban star, Victor Mesa Jr., drove in a run. Karma is a funny thing, and a few innings later, Nunez redeemed himself, driving in a run on a play in which St. Lucie catcher Matt Dyer bobbled the ball. Just for good measure, Mesa Jr. struck again by plating an insurance run, but it proved unneeded as reliever Justin Sterner had no problems closing things out.
