Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (3-13)

LEHIGH VALLEY 8, SYRACUSE 4 (BOX)

Friday night’s game between the Syracuse Mets and the Lehigh Valley IronPigs was a game the Mets would probably prefer to forget. The IronPig offense broke the game open in the top of the sixth, scoring seven runs in the inning to take a 7-0. Meanwhile, the IronPig pitching staff had a perfect game going into the bottom of the eighth inning, when Quinn Brodey singles off of Lehigh Valley reliever Bryan Mitchell. The IronPigs scored an insurance run in the top of the eighth on an RBI single off with a throwing error on the play off the bat of old friend Ruben Tejada. The Syracuse Mets scored a pair of runs in the bottom of the eighth, on a Drew Jackson RBI single and a sacrifice fly off the bat of Bruce Maxwell, and another pair in the bottom of the ninth, but ultimately lost to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs 8-4.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (1-14)

ERIE 5, BINGHAMTON 4 (BOX)

The Binghamton Rumble Ponies struck first in Friday evening’s game against the Erie Seawolves, when Mark Vientos walked with the bases loaded to force Desmond Lindsay home from third. They struck again in the second inning, on a pair of solo homers from David Rodriguez and Carlos Cortes. Binghamton added a run in the fifth inning on another solo homer, this time from Wagner Lagrange, to extend their lead to 4-0. Starting in the sixth inning, Erie slowly started chipping away at the Binghamton lead. Erie got on the board in the bottom of the sixth, on an RBI single off of Luc Rennie. They scored another run in the bottom of the seventh when Erie’s Riley Greene smacked an RBI double off of Thomas McIlraith. Erie plated a pair of runs in the bottom of the eighth on an RBI single and solo home run off of Jared Robinson to tie the game at 4-4. The game remained tied into the bottom of the ninth, when Riley Gilliam allowed a run on a trio of singles to give Erie a 5-4 lead and end the game in walk-off fashion. With their loss to the Erie Seawolves, the Binghamton Rumble Ponies have fallen to 1-14 on the season.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (6-9)

BROOKLYN 4, HUDSON VALLEY 1 (BOX)

The Brooklyn Cyclones immediately fell behind in last night’s game against the Hudson Valley Renegades, when Josh Walker allowed an RBI single in the top of the first inning. Brooklyn tied the game in the bottom half of the inning on an RBI single from Brett Baty, and took 3-1 lead by the end of the inning on a fielding error and RBI groundout. The Cyclones extended their lead to 4-1 in the bottom of the fifth on an RBI infield single from Brett Baty, his second of the game. That would be all of the offense Brooklyn would need, with starter Josh Walker following the run in the first with five scoreless innings. Michel Otanez threw a scoreless seventh, and Eric Orze contributed a scoreless eighth and ninth to secure his first save of the season. The Brooklyn Cyclones ultimately defeated the Hudson Valley Renegades 4-1.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (12-4)

ST. LUCIE 8, PALM BEACH 4 (BOX)

The St. Lucie Mets struck first in last night’s game against the Palm Beach Cardinals, when Ranfy Adon scored on a balk with Francisco Alvarez at the plate. Palm Beach plated three runs in the bottom of the second off of St. Lucie starter Joander Suarez. St. Lucie tied the game in the top of the fourth inning, on a bases loaded hit by pitch followed by a wild pitch that allowed Jose Peroza to score from third. They scored three runs in the top of the fifth on an RBI single from Warren Saunders, an RBI double from Cole Kleszcz, and a sacrifice fly from Shervyen Newton to take a 7-3 lead. They added an insurance run in the top of the sixth on a wild pitch, to extend their lead to 8-3. Drake Nightengale allowed a solo homer to Palm Beach’s Matt Koperniak in the bottom half of the inning, but the St. Lucie bullpen kept Palm Beach off the board for the rest of the night.
