Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (11-26)

Syracuse scored five runs in the first and still lost, which is a pretty good representation of how this season is going for the Triple-A Mets. Stephen Nogosek has the lowest ERA of any pitcher who appeared in this game for Syracuse at 6.00 which...yep. Nogosek and Stephen Tarpley combined to allow ten runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Recent pickup Travis Blankenhorn had his first home run of the year, while the rehabbing Jeff McNeil singled and struck out twice.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent 2B Jeff McNeil on a rehab assignment to Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (11-25)


Six of Binghamton’s starters recorded two hits, but that still wasn’t enough offense for the brutal Rumble Ponies pitching staff. Carlos Cortes stayed hot with two singles and a walk, while Mark Vientos inched his total line back towards average with a two-hit day. None of the pitchers are worth talking about in depth - suffice to say, they weren’t good yesterday.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (11-23)


Cody Bohanek single-handedly carried the offense in support of a fantastic pitching performance by the Cyclones. The journeyman outfielder tallied two doubles, a triple, and a walk in four plate appearances, tacking on a steal for good measure. That was more than enough support for Justin Lasko, Brian Metoyer, and Andrew Edwards, who struck out nine and allowed only five baserunners total.

ROSTER ALERT: LHP Cam Opp roster status changed by Brooklyn Cyclones.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Hunter Parsons roster status changed by Brooklyn Cyclones.

ROSTER ALERT: LF Zach Ashford roster status changed by Brooklyn Cyclones.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (20-17)


A wonderful start for J.T. Ginn was spoiled by the bullpen, who gave up four runs in the last two innings to blow the game. Ginn, working his way back from Tommy John surgery, tossed four scoreless innings and struck out five, allowing only one hit. Alex Ramirez supported him with a solo home run, but three relievers combined to walk seven batters in only four innings of work. Willy Taveras was the biggest culprit, recording only one out in the bottom of the ninth while giving up the tying and walk-off runs.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets placed RHP Austin Faith on the 7-day injured list retroactive to June 14, 2021.
