Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (4-14)


Franklyn Kilome did not look sharp at all, giving up six runs in five-plus innings, but even if he were pitching like Jacob deGrom, it wouldn’t have mattered much because the Syracuse offense was hitting like Jacob deGrom was actually pitching. Sebastian Elizalde led off the game with a single, but Syracuse wouldn’t log another hit after that until the fourth and wouldn’t actually score a run until the sixth. In total, the team left 10 men on base and went 1-12 with runners in scoring position.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (2-15)


Jake Mangum gave Binghamton an early 1-0 lead, but Erie got that run back and then some in the bottom of the frame, jumping out to a 3-1 lead. The Rumble Ponies would chip away all afternoon, and had Adam Oller been able to hold the SeaWolves scoreless after that three run first, it would’ve mattered, but the offense’s efforts ended up being in vain as the four runs they would end up scoring would not be enough to make up the five run deficit the right-hander put the team in when everything was said and done.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (7-10)


With the game tied at 2-2 apiece, the Brooklyn-Hudson valley game went into extra innings. Thanks to the phantom runner who starts in scoring position, most extra innings don’t go particularly long anymore- as intended. In a combination of excellent playing and/or ineptitude, neither team was able to pull out a victory in the 10th or 11th, with Brooklyn managing to walk off finally in the 12th. Hayden Senger walked things off in epic fashion, launching a home run over the left field wall to send the Maimonides Park crowd home happy.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (13-5)


St. Lucie scratched out a run in the first and added a few insurance runs in the top of the sixth on a Francisco Alvarez homer, and those runs came in handy when the Cardinals plated two of their own in the bottom of the frame to make it a 4-2 ballgame. The dynamic of the game took a turn in the top of the ninth, when reliever Francisco Justo came out for another inning of work. He ended up not even recording an out in the inning, as Warren Saunders led the inning off with a double and was followed by five consecutive singles, knocking the right-hander out of the game and tagging his replacement as well. When everything was said and done, St. Lucie tacked on an additional five runs. In his own second inning of work, Willy Taveras made things a bit interesting by allowing two more Palm Beach runs to score, but he righted the ship and eventually closed the door.
