Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (12-35)

BUFFALO 9, SYRACUSE 7 / 11 (BOX)

Even when Syracuse scores, they still can’t win. Such is life right now. Trailing going into late innings, Syracuse tied things up in the bottom of the ninth on a Brandon Drury home run. Into extra innings things went, and sure enough, the ghost runner scored in the top of the inning, putting Syracuse behind the eight ball. Mason Williams tied the game up at 7-7 in the bottom of the inning on a sac fly but left men on first and second. Tom Windle pitched the eleventh and not only let the ghost runner score but let three men cross the plate in total. Syracuse got one of those runs back but couldn’t close the gap fully.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (14-31)

BINGHAMTON RUMBLE PONIES 10, READING FIGHTIN PHILS 8 / 10 (BOX)

Another day, another Vientos homer. His homer was a game winner, so we’ll get to that in a second. This was a high scoring affair involving two of the worst pitching teams in the Double-A Northeast Northeast. Luc Rennie got the start for Binghamton and gave up seven runs over four-plus innings. Fransisco Morales got the start for the Reading and gave up five runs- one earned- over four-plus innings. Just like their parent club, the Fightin Phils bullpen let the rest of the team down. Braden Zarbnisky gave up three runs in the eighth on a Yoel Romero three-run homer, tying things up at 8-8. Neither scored in the ninth and into extras we went. Austin Ross, in his second inning of work for the Phils, immediately gave up that aforementioned Vientos homer run, giving the Ponies a 10-8 lead. Ryley Gilliam, who had been pitching since the eighth, put up a third goose egg in the bottom of the inning, inducing a weak pop up to second and striking out his last two batters.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (16-29)

JERSEY SHORE 3, BROOKLYN 0 (BOX)

Justin Lasko had a hiccup in the third, allowing three runs, but that would be all the BlueClaws needed, as four Jersey Shore pitchers combined to throw a shutout. The Cyclones managed just two hits, and both were from Cody Bohanek. In addition, Fransisco Alvarez, LT Struble, and the aforementioned Bohanek drew walks, but that would be all the team could manage.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (26-22)

ST. LUCIE 5, DUNEDIN 4 (BOX)

St. Lucie took the initial lead, scoring two runs in the fourth and one in the fifth, but those runs were erased in the sixth, when the Blue Jays scored four runs. Dunedin held the lead until the ninth, when wunderkind Alex Ramirez started a rally. Already having recorded two base knocks in the game, including a home run, he laced a single into center and then stole second to get into scoring position. Cole Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE Mets Daily Prospect Report, 6/28/21: Vientosmaniafollowed that up with a walk, putting the winning run on base. Warren Saunders rolled over one and hit a routine grounder to third in what should’ve been a routine double play to end the game, but Blue Jays third baseman Harrison Ray threw the ball away, allowing Ramirez to score the tying run and Kleszcz to score the winning run.
