Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (1-2)

SCRANTON/WILKES-BARRE 17, SYRACUSE 11 (BOX)

It’s been a while, so let me remind you if you’ve forgotten: In 2019, the International League introduced a new ball that substantially increased offense. Clearly, the Triple-A East Northeast is using those same balls, because Syracuse and Scranton/Wilkes-Barre combined for 28 runs on 25 hits. Despite the high number of runs being scored, the game was actually a close one early on. In the fifth, the RailRiders scored three runs to tie things up at 5-5, but that tie would not last long as Syracuse plated four in the bottom of the inning to take the lead. Unfortunately for them, that lead would barely last, as Scranton/Wilkes-Barre put up an eight spot in the top of the sixth, giving them a commanding lead they would not relinquish.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RHP Jordan Yamamoto to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RHP Sean Reid-Foley to Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (0-3)

AKRON 9, BINGHAMTON 2 (BOX)

Tully Blanchard is one of the best of all time. Tanner Tully is not, but last night, Binghamton made him look like one of the best, managing only one run, a solo shot from Mark Vientos in the fourth. The RubberDuck offense, meanwhile, had no such problems against Binghamton starter Sam Tewes or any of the relievers that followed him.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (1-2)

ASHEVILLE 11, BROOKLYN 4 (BOX)

Having missed the entire 2019 season due to injury and the 2020 season due to COVID-19, Oscar Rojas toed the rubber for the first time in years and…the results weren’t great. By the time he was replaced by Nick MacDonald in the third, Brooklyn was already behind by five runs and MacDonald allowed a few more of his own to score before the frame ended. Things didn’t get better as the game progressed, and while the Cyclones scored a few late-inning runs, the deficit was far too deep at that point to make much of a difference.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (2-1)

ST. LUCIE 9, JUPITER 0 (BOX)

The St. Lucie bats came out swinging, plating three runs in the first and three more in the second to take a commanding lead early on. Garrison Bryant, the ace of the St. Lucie staff in this writer’s opinion, held his end of the deal and threw five scoreless innings, scattering three hits and walking one. Relievers Colby Morris, Liam McCall, and Austin Faith followed suit, and just like that, St. Lucie not only had their first shutout, but their first blowout as well.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Liam McCall assigned to St. Lucie Mets from GCL Mets.
