Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (11-22)


Syracuse dropped another game, with this one being a tough one. Syracuse was held scoreless through the first two innings, with Corey Oswalt keeping Worcester off the board as well. Oswalt could not keep them off the board long after that, as Jarren Duran took him deep following a lead off walk, making it 2-0 Red Sox. Drew Ferguson got one back in the bottom of the frame with a solo homer, and the 2-1 score would hold until the sixth inning. Cheslor Cuthbert worked a two out walk in that inning, and Khalil Lee would chase him home with a double. That would prove to be the end of the scoring for the Mets.

Trey Cobb had a poor outing that put the game out of reach for the Mets. After getting the lead off man in the seventh, he would surrender a walk and single, and served up a three run homer that all but ended the game. The Mets would get runners on in the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings, but could not tally another run.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Josh Hejka assigned to Syracuse Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (10-22)


Binghamton actually opened the scoring in this one, after a scoreless first and second inning, when Yoel Romero blasted a solo home run over the left field fence to lead off the top of the third. That would be the only lead the Rumble Ponies would have on the night.

Adam Oller started well, throwing 3.1 scoreless innings, but Bowie got to him after that. A walk, three singles, and an RBI ground out made it 3-1 Bowie in the top of the fourth, and chased Oller from the game. Thomas McIlrath threw 2.1 scoreless innings to keep Binghamton in it, but the rest of the bullpen would falter. Ryley Gilliam served up a two run home run in the seventh, making it 5-1. The Rumble Ponies got the runs back in the bottom of the eighth, when Mark Vientos hit a two run homer of his own, following a Quinn Brodey single, pushing the score to 5-3. Bowie would put the nail in the coffin in the ninth, though. Gilliam got the first two outs of the ninth but served up a single and got pulled in favor of Jared Robinson. Robinson subsequently gave up a two run home run to a little known prospect named Adley Rutschman, all but ending the game. Carlos Cortes continued his good season with a ninth inning home run, but it was too little, too late for Binghamton.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (10-20)


The Brooklyn bats got absolutely stifled in this throwback pitchers duel. They mustered just two hits and walked just one time in the loss. The big three of Ronny Mauricio, Brett Baty, and Francisco Álvarez went a whopping 0-9 with seven strikeouts (and zero walks) punctuating a poor performance by the Brooklyn bats.

The trio of Cam Opp, Allan Willans, and Michael Otanez pitched well, surrendering just three hits in the loss, with the only run an unearned one in the second. Opp forced a ground out, but a throwing error by Mauricio let the runner aboard. An Álvarez passed ball moved him to second, and a single chased him in. It was a frustrating loss for Brooklyn.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (19-14)


Palm Beach and St. Lucie played a rather unique game, and one that got off to a, well, auspicious start for the Mets, to say the least.

St. Lucie starter Austin Faith gave up seven runs (six earned) in the first inning before recording a single out, getting pulled from the game with 0.0 innings pitched on the stat line. Brailin Gonzalez did not help matters, hitting his first batter to load the bases, and serving up a grand slam (half the runs being charged to him, and the other half to Faith) before putting an end to the (you read this right) nine run first inning for the Cardinals.

St. Lucie’s offense deserves credit for getting the Mets back into it, though. A Nic Gaddis single made it 9-1 in the second, and they rallied in the third to get it close. Alex Ramirez and Joe Suozzi set the table with back to back singles. Jose Peroza drove in one with a single of his own, and a Jaylen Palmer double made it 9-3. Back to back sac flies by Shervyen Newton and Jose Colina made it 9-5 in the third, and suddenly made it a game. That did not last long, however.

Liam McCall allowed another blow up inning, surrendering five runs in the fifth — one on a double, and the other four on back to back home runs (a three run shot and a solo home run). The Mets scored again in the seventh, with Nic Gaddis’ first triple of the season making it 14-7. He would score on a throwing error on a ball hit by Brandon McIlwain, but the deficit was simply too big to overcome.
