Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (5-16)

ROCHESTER 9, SYRACUSE 8 (BOX)

The pitching in this one was what one could politely call “horrific”, and the Syracuse offense couldn’t overcome. Each of Akeem Bostick and Trey Cobb gave up four earned runs, with an extra unearned off Bostick. Syracuse put together a late rally with four runs in the seventh, started with an RBI triple by Quinn Brodey, but couldn’t manage anything else and ultimately fell one runs short.

ROSTER ALERT: 2B Nick Conti assigned to Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (4-17)

GAME 1: BINGHAMTON 3, AKRON 2 / 8 (BOX)

Wagner Lagrange was the hero in this one, notching a single in extra innings to drive in the Jake Mangum for the walkoff win. The pitching was great - six innings of two-run ball from Josh Walker and two more scoreless innings from the bullpen. On the offensive side of the ball, Mark Vientos had the most notable day with a home run, though he also made an error while playing 1B (a notable positional development).

GAME 2: BINGHAMTON 8, AKRON 7 / 7 (BOX)

The pitching for the Rumble Ponies was a disaster, but the offense came through big time in game 2. Oscar De La Cruz and Yeizo Camps gave up a combined seven runs in the first three innings, and the RubberDucks built a sizable lead. Three runs in the fifth and three runs in the sixth tied things up, and Mark Vientos notched a walkoff single to drive in Manny Rodriguez in the bottom of the seventh.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (7-13)

GAME 1: ABDERDEEN 6, BROOKLYN 2 / 7 (BOX)

The first half of Brooklyn’s doubleheader was a bit of a snooze fest. The Cyclones managed no extra base hits and only two walks, putting together only four at bats with RISP. Brett Baty and Ronny Mauricio both managed a single, while Francisco Alvarez went hitless in hsi two at bats. On the pitching side, Jaison Vilera coughed up five runs, one unearned thanks to his own error.

GAME 2: ABERDEEN 10, BROOKLYN 1 / 7 (BOX)

If game 1 was a snooze, game 2 was a laugher. Sam Opp was shelled for eight runs in a two inning start, and the St. Lucie offense was even more inept in game two. The top of the lineup in particular was awful, going a combined 0-for-10 with seven strikeouts.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (7-11)

DAYTONA 9, ST. LUCIE 4 (BOX)

St. Lucie’s pitchers didn’t have it in this one, allowing at least one run in six of nine innings. Joander Suarez was the biggest culprit, allowing six runs in only 3.1 innings, while Jeffrey Colon allowed three runs in relief. On offense, the Mets were underwhelmed despite the four runs, managing only five hits overall. Shervyen Newton’s struggles continued with four strikeouts in five plate appearances.
