Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (8-16)

BUFFALO 3, SYRACUSE 2 (BOX)

Syracuse had a frustrating day at the office in this one. Despite only scoring two runs, they were all over the basepaths, notching nine hits and three walks along with them. The two times they did manage to squeak a run across came by way of a Nick Conti double play in the top of the second, and by way of Noted Mets Walk-off Hero Patrick Mazeika, who doubled home drew Jackson in the fifth.

The Mets pitchers could not hold the very skinny lead, as starter Jesús Reyes had a shaky quality start — he only gave up two runs (one earned) — but he surrendered three hits and walked three in the process. A clean seventh by Tom Windle kept the score at 2-2, and a scoreless eighth by Bradley Roney got us to the ninth inning at two apiece. Syracuse went meekly in the top of the ninth, and Roney came out for his second inning of work. He immedtialy surrendered a leadoff double, and a grounder pushed the runner to third. AN unintentional walk, followed by an intentional walk, loaded the bases with one away. A strikeout put Roney on the precipice of weaseling his way out of the jam. Logan Warmoth and Bradley Roney had a two out battle, as the former worked the count to 3-2 before drawing a game winning walk, literally walking off the Triple-A Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (5-19)

BINGHAMTON 6, NEW HAMPSHIRE 4 (BOX)

Binghamton got off to a quick start in this one and never looked back, putting up a three spot in the second inning after both teams went quietly in the first. Singles by Yoel Romero (who got out on a fielder’s choice off the bat of Nick Meyer) and Desmond Lindsay, followed by a Luis Carpio walk, loaded the bases with one away. A wild pitch saw Meyer scamper home, and a Manny Rodriguez single scored two more, making it 3-0. New Hampshire would pull of a double steal and steal second and home in the bottom of the second, but Meyer would earn the run back by chasing Jeremy Vasquez home on a double play in the third. The Fisher Cats clawed another one back in the bottom of the fourth, when a throwing error by Rodriguez allowed a runner to score from first on a single.

Meyer was involved in yet another run scoring in the fifth, but did not earn an RBI for his trouble this time around, either. After a Vasquez walk and a Wagner Lagrange single, Meyer reached on a fielder’s choice, with a throwing error allowing Vasquez to scamper home. Starter Tony Dibrell, who had a solid showing, allowed a run in the bottom of the frame, and we went to the sixth 5-3. A Yoel Romero bases loaded walk made it 6-3 in the sixth, a score that would hold until the ninth. Cole Gordon came out for the save, and worked around a walk and an RBI double to secure the win for Binghamton.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (8-14)

BROOKLYN 11, JERSEY SHORE 5 (BOX)

Brooklyn had a really impressive offensive showing throughout this relatively easy win. They were held off the board in only the third, fourth and sixth innings, as the offense never took their feet off the gas. They got on the board with authority, as Brett Baty hit a long opposite field solo home run in the first, and Joe Genord followed it with a two-run shot of his own in the second. A two run home run off of Jose Butto in the bottom of the second got the Blue Claws within a run, a score that would stick until the fifth. Singles by Anthony Walters and Antoine Duplantis set up Ronny Mauricio to do some damage. He would deliver, tripling home both runners, giving the Mets a three run cushion. Baty would single home Mauricio (a sentence we all hope to get used to), pushing the lead to 6-2. A Colby Morris balk would chase home a run for Jersey Shore in the sixth, and a solo homer would make it a game yet again, with Brooklyn leading 6-4 going into the final three frames.

Brooklyn finally put the nail in the coffin in the seventh and eighth. Luke Ritter chased home Zach Ashford with a fielders choice in the seventh. Baty continued his incredible game with an RBI double in the eighth, and Francisco Álvarez followed it up with a huge home run to dead center, making it 10-4 and putting the game away. The Blue Claws would score one off of Allan Winans in the eighth, but Adrian Hernandez would get it right back in the top of the ninth, putting the cherry on top of a fantastic offensive performance with his first home run of the year.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (16-9)

FORT MYERS 1, ST. LUCIE 0 (BOX)

St. Lucie and Fort Myers were locked in a pitchers duel of sorts. While the score suggests it was a low-event affair, both teams had their share of base runners. While there were only five combined hits, the Mets worked six walks, with the Mighty Mussels working four of their own. The teams also combined for five errors. There was activity on the bases, but only one run managed to come across.

Oscar Rojas and Fort Myers starter Regi Grace kept both teams off the board and surrendered just three hits apiece, though control issues (four walks and three hit by pitches!) saw Fort Myers go to their pen in the fifth inning. A scoreless inning by Brailin Gonzalez saw the 0-0 score go into the seventh, where that would change.

Liam McCall came in, and after getting the first out, got into trouble. A walk, a single, and a walk loaded the bases with one out. McCall got the ground ball he needed with the next batter, but Willie Joe Gary Jr. beat out the throw, allowing the only run of the game to score. They would make the final out on the basepaths, but the damage was done. The Mets had just one baserunner in the eighth and ninth (a one out, eighth inning walk by Jose Peroza), going meekly to the finish line.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Jeffrey Colon assigned to GCL Mets from St. Lucie Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: St. Lucie Mets activated RHP J.T. Ginn from the 7-day injured list.
