Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (4-13)

SYRACUSE 9, LEHIGH VALLEY 8 (BOX)

This one was a slug fest, with the IronPigs and the Mets trading blows in the late innings before Syracuse ultimately came out on top. Thomas Szapucki started strong, allowing only an unearned run in four innings and striking out five while the Mets built a lead off home runs from David Thompson and Drew Jackson. Bradley Roney and Sam McWilliams were much less successful, however, allowing six runs in four innings between and putting the Mets in a tie game despite another home run from Drew Jackson and a solo shot from J.D. Davis. Cody Bohanek came through in the bottom of the eighth, but Corey Oswalt - making his season debut - coughed up that lead in the top of the ninth as well. The Mets got a gift in the last frame thankfully, with a walk, single, and passed ball allowing Sebastian Elizalde to scamper home with the game winning run.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets activated RHP Corey Oswalt from the 7-day injured list.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (2-14)

BINGHAMTON 6, ERIE 4 (BOX)

Binghamton managed just their second win of the season, leaning on Tylor Megill’s strikeout proficiency for a 6-4 victory. Megill struck out a whopping 11 SeaWolves in only 5.2 innings, though he was probably left in a bit too long and gave up three runs in the sixth. He should be due for a promotion and possible a move to the bullpen in short order, and perhaps even a major league cameo. On offense, home runs from David Rodriguez and Manny Rodriguez provided the thump, with a two-run double from Mark Vientos also coming up big.

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

ROSTER ALERT: CF Jake Mangum assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from Brooklyn Cyclones.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (6-10)

HUDSON VALLEY 5, BROOKLYN 3 (BOX)

The Cyclones’ office was mostly dormant in this one, and they were unable to rally back from an early deficit. Cam Opp had a rough start, failing to get out of the fourth inning and giving up five runs. Brooklyn didn’t score until the sixth (a single from Anthony Walters) and added two more in the eighth, but went quietly in the ninth for their tenth loss of the year. Ronny Mauricio had a day to forget in this one, going hitless with a caught stealing.

ROSTER ALERT: LF Zach Ashford assigned to Brooklyn Cyclones from St. Lucie Mets.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (12-5)

PALM BEACH 6, ST. LUCIE 5 (BOX)

St. Lucie was on the verge of a great comeback win before their bullpen blew things in the ninth. Luis Moreno struggled to start the game, allowing four runs in 1.2 innings, and the Mets were down for the majority in the game. Then, in the seventh, a Tanner Murphy double got St. Lucie on the board, and a couple of bases loaded walks scored two more runs to cut the lead to one. Francisco Alvarez had the potential game winning hit with a two-run double in the eighth, but Reyson Santos couldn’t close things out, giving up a walkoff infield single in the bottom of the ninth.
