Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (2-8)

WORCESTER 2, SYRACUSE 1 / 10 INNINGS (BOX)

Jordan Yamamoto got the start for Syracuse in Friday evening’s game, and pitched generally pretty well despite not getting very deep into the game. Yamamoto allowed one run, on a solo homer to Worcester’s Marcus Wilson in the bottom of the second, in 4.1 innings of work, with eight strikeouts and three walks. Syracuse trailed 1-0 until the top of the seventh, when Quinn Brodey homered to tie the game. The game remained tied at 1-1 through the ninth and into extra innings. Syracuse failed to score in the top of the tenth, and Stephen Nogosek entered the game to try to keep the game tied. With one out in the inning, Nogosek walked Danny Santana and Chris Herrmann intentionally to load the bases and potentially set up a double play situation. Nogosek managed to get the second out in the inning, but subsequently walked Marcus Wilson to force in the winning run. The Syracuse Mets lost to the Worcester Red Sox 2-1.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (0-9)

ALTOONA: 9, BINGHAMTON 7 (BOX)

The Rumble Ponies got on the board first in last night’s game against the Altoona Curve. Carlos Cortes and Nick Meyer hit back to back singles to lead off the bottom of the first and both came around to score later in the inning on a throwing error. Mark Vientos followed with a two-run homer to extend the Rumble Ponies’ lead to 4-0. Altoona immediately managed to cut Binghamton’s lead in half, when Dylan Hall allowed a two run homer to Altoona’s Canaan Smith-Njigba, and imploded in the top of the third. Hall allowed two runs to score on a single, and another two runs scored later in the inning on a fielding error, and an inherited runner to score on a sacrifice fly after leaving the game with Tony Dibrell on the mound. Binghamton attempted to come back in the bottom of the seventh, scoring two runs on an RBI double from Carlos Cortes and a throwing error that allowed Cortes to score later in the inning, cutting the Altoona lead to 7-6. From there the Rumble Ponies were unable to get much else going offensively, and Altoona added another two runs in the top of the eighth off of Thomas McIlraith. Nick Meyer drove in a run in the bottom of the ninth, but the Rumble Ponies ultimately lost to the Curve 9-7, and remain winless on the year.

ROSTER ALERT: Right-handed pitcher Dylan Hall has been assigned to the Binghamton Rumble Ponies from the St. Lucie Mets.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (4-5)

GREENVILLE 5, BROOKLYN 1 (BOX)

The Cyclones scored first in last night’s game against the Greenville Drive, when Joe Genord hit a solo homer to left center. The Cyclones led 1-0 until the bottom of the fourth, when Greenville tied it on a solo homer off of Cyclones’ starter Alec Kisena. The game remained tied at 1-1 until the bottom of the fifth when Nick MacDonald allowed three runs to score on a bases loaded hit by pitch, and a single later in the inning. MacDonald allowed another run to score on a solo homer in the bottom of the sixth, and the Cyclones were unable to get much more going offensively against the Greenville pitching staff. The Cyclones ultimately lost 5-1 to the Drive.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (7-3)

ST. LUCIE 5, DAYTON 4 / 10 INNINGS (BOX)

The St. Lucie Mets fell behind in the bottom of the first inning of last night’s game against the Daytona Tortugas, when Justin Lasko allowed a runner to score on a wild pitch. The Mets immediately tied the game in the top of the second on an RBI double from Jose Colina. Daytona broke the tie in the bottom of the fourth when a run scored on a fielding error from third baseman Jose Peroza. St. Lucie tied the game again in the top of the fifth inning on a bases loaded walk, and fell behind again in the bottom of the seventh when Hunter Parsons allowed an RBI double to Daytona’s Daniel Vellojin. St. Lucie managed to tie the game in the top of the eighth when Shervyen Newton walked with the bases loaded, and the game remained tied through nine innings and headed to extras. St. Lucie struck first in extras, when Sheryven Newton singled home Warren Saunders and Jose Peroza to give the Mets a 5-3 lead. The St. Lucie Mets surrendered a run in the bottom of the tenth, but ultimately held on to defeat the Daytona Tortugas 5-4.
