Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (3-12)

SYRACUSE 5, LEHIGH VALLEY 3 (BOX)

Syracuse starter Jerad Eickhoff put the Triple-A Mets in a bind, getting them behind 3-0 due to a solo shot in the top of the second, and a two-run homer by former Mets legend Ryan Cordell. He settled down after that, and ended up earning a quality start for his troubles, going six innings, giving up those three runs on five hits and three walks, striking out seven in the process.

David Thompson hit a two-run home run on his own, cutting the lead to 3-2. The Mets took the lead for good in the bottom of the fifth, with the rally starting on a pair of two out walks by Thompson and Quinn Brodey. A Sebastian Elizade single chased Thompson home and tied the game, with an error on the throw getting Elizade to second. Nick Meyer followed that up with a single of his own, putting the Mets ahead by the future final score of 5-3. Stephen Nogosek had a throwback save, pitching three scoreless innings, striking out five and allowing just one hit, an eighth inning single.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (1-13)

ERIE 11, BINGHAMTON 1 (BOX)

As the score suggests, this was a laugher for the beleaguered Rumble Ponies of Binghamton, as they fell to a horrific 1-13 record on the 2021 season.

The game got out of hand rather quickly, with Dylan Hall giving up three runs in the first, one in the third, and one in the fifth — the last run on an honest to god steal of home. The bullpen did not fare much better, as Cole Gordon, Dan Goggin, and Joe Zanghi surrendered six runs on eight hits. Offensively, Binghamton worked five walks and scattered six hits, but did not do much, obviously. Mark Vientos got two hits to push his average over .200 on the season, and Yoel Romero continued his excellent season, driving in the only run of the ballgame for the Rumble Ponies.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (5-9)

HUDSON VALLEY 6, BROOKLYN 1 (BOX)

This game was a tale of two halves, as the beginning of the game was close, and Hudson Valley ran away with it late. Jaison Vilera threw a scoreless first, and gave up a run in the second to put Brooklyn behind 1-0. Gerson Molina would ground into a double play with runners on the corners, chasing home a run to make it 1-1. That score would stand until the fifth.

Vilera got the first two outs of the inning and looked like he would keep the score at one apiece, but a single and a homer made it 3-1 in an instant. Colby Morris came in to relieve him in the sixth, but could not keep it close. A walk and a double put Hudson Valley up 4-1, and a single followed by two doubles in the seventh made it 6-1, a lead that would prove to be insurmountable. Josh Hejka kept it at 6-1 with three perfect innings, but the offense was invisible, tallying just three hits.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (11-4)

ST. LUCIE 7, PALM BEACH 0 (BOX)

The best pitcher in baseball, Jacob deGrom, started this one for St. Lucie on a rehab assignment, and did as one would expect a multi-time Cy Young award winner would do against Low-A competition: he dominated.

deGrom threw three perfect innings, including eight strikeouts, on just 41 pitches (30 strikes!), shutting down a Palm Beach team that has had its share of major league rehab assignments thrown at them this series.

The rest of the pitchers were their own brand of dominant, with Justin Lasko pitching five innings of two hit ball in relief of deGrom, striking out six in the process. Brendan Hardy pitched a clean ninth to finish off the win.

Offensively, St. Lucie was on. They took the lead in the first on a Zach Ashford double, and added a pair of runs in the fifth, sixth and seventh to make it 7-0. The fifth saw Tanner Murphy single one home, and Francisco Álvarez double home Murphy. In the sixth, Cole Klezcz tripled home Jaylen Palmer, who led off the inning with a single. Jimmy Titus would chase him home with a sacrifice fly. Ashford added another run with a single in the seventh, and Álvarez would scamper home on a wild pitch, for the seventh and final run.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Sammy Tavarez assigned to St. Lucie Mets from DSL Mets1.
