Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (11-21)

WORCESTER 12, SYRACUSE 5 (BOX)

For a second day in a row, the Woo Sox demolished Syracuse, handing them their third loss in a row. Thomas Szapucki labored through three-plus innings, and things didn’t get better when the Marcel Renteria came in to relieve him. The right-hander allowed all of Szapucki’s inherited runners to score, and proceeded to allow seven runs of his own- though only six were earned and a few were inherited runners that veteran Tom Windle allowed to score. The Syracuse bats showed up early, with Drew Jackson and Albert Almora both driving in two apiece in the second, but the only other run the team would score was a Cesar Puello RBI single in the seventh.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets placed RHP Franklyn Kilome on the 7-day injured list.

ROSTER ALERT: Syracuse Mets placed 1B David Thompson on the 7-day injured list retroactive to May 5, 2021.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (10-21)

BINGHAMTON 9, BOWIE 1 (BOX)

Josh Walker pitched the best game of his professional career thus far, a career curtailed by injuries and COVID. The right-hander went seven strong innings, allowing a single run on three hits while walking one and striking out nine. The Rumble Pony offense clicked on all cylinders, with all but two hitters logging at least one hit on the night.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (10-19)

GAME ONE

HUDSON VALLEY 3, BROOKLYN 2 / 7 (BOX)

Josh Smith homered in the top of the first to put the Renegades on top, but the Cyclones quickly got that run back as Zach Ashford drove in a run in the second. The game stayed tied until the sixth, when a tiring Justin Lasko gave up a two-run homer to Hudson Valley second baseman Ezequiel Duran. Cody Bohanek hit one of his own in the bottom of the inning to bring Brooklyn within one, but the offense went down 1-2-3 in the seventh to end Game One of the double header.

GAME TWO

BROOKLYN 5, HUDSON VALLEY 3 (BOX)

This game was a makeup of Tuesday’s rainout. Hunter Parsons allowed three runs in the second, but Brooklyn got one of those runs right back in the bottom of the inning, when Zach Ashford drove in a run. The Cyclones bided their time and struck in the fourth. Juan Uriarte drove in a run with a line drive into left to make it 3-2 Hudson Valley, and Gerson Molina went yard right after to make it 4-3 Brooklyn. Brett Baty hit his first home run at home in the bottom of the fifth to extend Brooklyn’s lead to 5-3 and Bryce Montes de Oca notched his first save, throwing a scoreless sixth and seventh.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (17-13)

ST. LUCIE 5, PALM BEACH 3 (BOX)

With the game tied at 1-1, Jose Peroza hit a two-run homer in the third to put St. Lucie on top and added another run in the fifth on an RBI double. Luis Moreno allowed a pair of runs in the seventh to bring the Cardinals within one, but Joe Suozzi added an insurance run in the bottom of the inning to give them a little breathing room. Ultimately, it wouldn’t be needed as Sammy Tavarez slammed the door in the ninth, notching his first save.

The real story of this game, however, was J.T. Ginn making his second start of the season. The right-hander threw four innings, allowing one run- a homer- on four hits, walking one and striking out two. He threw 34 of his 49 pitches for strikes, mostly fastballs with a handful of sliders, changeups and cutters mixed in. The home run he allowed came on a slider thrown almost down Broadway.
