Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (5-15)

ROCHESTER 7, SYRACUSE 5 (BOX)

Syracuse scored on a wild pitch in the top of the first and scored three more in the third- including another run scored by Mason Williams on a wild pitch- but were unable to hold on to the four-run bulge they built for themselves early. Jesus Reyes allowed a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth and then ran into trouble in the sixth. His replacements, A.J. Schugel, allowed all of the inherited runners left for him to score and then some, with Rochester eventually scoring six runs in the frame. Syracuse had a few chances in the eighth and ninth to make up some of those runs, but nothing ever came of them.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (2-17)

AKRON 3, BINGHAMTON 1 / 7 (BOX)

Thanks to rain that swept through the area last night, what was supposed to be a double-header almost got postponed itself. Jeremy Vasquez drove in a run in the top of the first to give Binghamton a quick lead, but the RubberDucks almost immediately got it back and then some in the bottom of the second, plating runs on back-to-back doubles. In the top of the third, the game went into a rain delay that lasted about two hours and not much happened when the contest resumed. Will Benson- who hit one of those RBI doubles- hammered a solo home run off of reliever Cole Gordon, but the game moved fairly quickly and resulted in yet another Rumble Ponies loss.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (7-11)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (14-6)

ST. LUCIE 4, DAYTONA 3 (BOX)

The St. Lucie Mets continued their winning ways, this time in dramatic fashion by walking off the game after narrowly losing a tough one. Right-hander Justin Lasko was phenomenal during his time on the bump, with one lone blemish in the third, a Wendell Marrero solo home run. Warren Saunders singled in a run in the fourth to tie things up a 1-1 apiece, and Randy Adon drove in another to give the Mets the lead. Reyson Santos replaced Lasko in the ninth and had a meltdown befitting of the Mets bullpen, giving up solo home runs to the first two batters he faced to give up the lead and then striking out the next three to end the inning. St. Lucie did not go quietly into the afternoon. After loading up the bases, Jimmy Titus drew a bases loaded walk to tie the game at 1-1. One batter later, Shervyen Newton did the same, and the Mets won it. Both Titus and Newton were on 3-2 counts before drawing their respective walks. In both batters’ cases, the fourth balls were easy takes, mistake pitches nowhere near the strike zone.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Brailin Gonzalez assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.
