Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (2-10)


Syracuse’s less-than-impressive start to the season continued with another loss to the Woo Sox, their fourth in a row and tenth on the season. Jesus Reyes gave up five runs in the third, and while Syracuse started chipping away at that lead, reliever A.J. Schugel gave up back-to-back homers in the seventh to basically put the game out of reach for the Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (1-10)


Our long national nightmare is over! Faced with going 0-10 to start the season, the Rumble Ponies bucked up and got that first win of the 2021 season in convincing fashion. Both teams scored in the first, but the Rumble Ponies charged ahead in the third, scoring two runs in a rally started by Tylor Megill’s first professional hit. Manny Rodriguez drove in a pair in the fourth to make it 5-1, Jeremy Vasquez hit a solo homer to make it 6-1 in the fifth and Will Toffey added an RBI in the sixth to make it 7-1. Joe Zanghi made it interesting in the ninth, allowing a pair of Curve runs to score, but Andrew Mitchell relieved him and slammed the door shut.

  • LF Will Toffey: 2-4, R, 2B, RBI, BB, K
  • RF Yoel Romero: 2-5, R, 2B, RBI
  • 3B Mark Vientos: 0-4, 3 K, E (2); I’m Vientos’ biggest supporter, but even I’m starting to lose faith; he looks like he’s swinging a 50 lb. bat and still is having issues recognizing breaking pitches
  • CF Wagner Lagrange: 1-4, 2 RBI
  • 1B Jeremy Vasquez: 1-4, R, HR (1), RBI, 2 K, 2 E (2, 3); Vasquez’s homer hit the batting cage roof and ricocheted into the parking lot, where I recovered it.
  • 2B Luis Carpio: 1-2, R, 2B, 2 BB, K
  • C David Rodriguez: 1-3, R, BB, K
  • SS Manny Rodriguez: 1-4, RBI, 3 K
  • P Tylor Megill: 1-2, R, RBI
  • PH Nick Meyer: 1-1, R, SB (1)
  • PH Carlos Cortes: 0-1
  • RHP Tylor Megill: 6.0 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 5 K, W (1-0); His fastball sat 92-94 MPH, topping out at 96 MPH once. The slider, his go-to secondary pitch, ranged from 84-86 MPH, with a few mid-80s changeups and high-70 curveballs mixed in.
  • RHP Cole Gordon: 2.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
  • RHP Joe Zanghi: 0.1 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, WP
  • LHP Andrew Mitchell: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

ROSTER ALERT: Binghamton Rumble Ponies placed RHP Colin Holderman on the 7-day injured list.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Dylan Hall assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (4-7)


What a game! The Cyclones and the Drive more or less matched each other run for run and going into late innings, the Cyclones held a narrow 6-4 lead. In the bottom of the eighth, Michel Otanez and Eric Orze combined to allow five runs. Down by three, Ronny Mauricio pulled a Jake Wallace offering over the right field wall for a three-run homer, tying the game at 9-9. Orze remained on the mound in the ninth, and after running up the count against Drive first baseman Tyreque Reed to 3-2, gave up a solo homer to end the game.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (8-4)


Tanner Murphy slugged a two-run homer in the third and those runs turned out to be the winning runs, as the Tortugas managed only a single run on the afternoon, a solo shot off the bat of center fielder Allan Cerda. Cam Opp threw a solid five innings and was relieved by Luis Moreno, whose only blemish was that homer.

ROSTER ALERT: SS Jimmy Titus assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.
