Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (9-17)

SYRACUSE 6, BUFFALO 4 (BOX)

In the battle of Upstate New York (being played in New Jersey, of course), Syracuse and Buffalo both plated a run apiece in the second and put up a three spot in the fourth, but it was Syracuse’s unanswered runs in the seventh that made the difference in the game. With a man on second, David Thompson gave a Dany Jimenez offering a ride, depositing the pitch over the left field wall. Given the lead, Yennesy Diaz shut the Herd down in the seventh and eighth, and Steven Nogosek threw a clean ninth for his third save of the season.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (6-19)

BINGHAMTON 8, NEW HAMPSHIRE 7 / 10 (BOX)

What has gotten into Jake Mangum? The outfielder had yet another impressive day at the plate, going 3-5 with two doubles and a triple. The player we saw in Brooklyn was coming off of a ~70 game season at MSU and was playing in a notoriously tough park for hitters, but if you claimed you predicted Jake would be hitting .292/.329/.514 through his first 18 games this season, I’d call you a liar. The SEC hit king was a big reason why the Rumble Ponies rallied to win their sixth game of the season, escaping dead last in the Double-A East Northeast and leaving the Reading Fightin’ Phils in their dust. Down in the ninth, Luis Carpio doubled to drive in Hayden Senger and Matt Winaker, tying the game at 6-6 and forcing the game into extras. In the tenth, Mangum led off the inning with a triple that scored the phantom runner and was then driven in himself by a Wagner Lagrange sac fly. Jared Robinson made it a little close in the bottom of the tenth by allowing the Fisher Cats to plate a run, but he settled down to close the door.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (8-15)

JERSEY SHORE 4, BROOKLYN 1 (BOX)

Though the lineup was virtually the same, the Cyclones didn’t show the same spunk and fire that they showed on Tuesday night. Justin Lasko wasn’t bad in his first start since being promoted from St. Lucie, but he wasn’t particularly good, either. Of the four runs he allowed, one was because of an error, and one was on a sac fly. The other two were on a Jhailyn Ortiz homer that was an absolute bomb. But four runs is far from an insurmountable lead, but the Cyclones offense looked listless all night. All in all, the team went 1-8 with runners in scoring position and left 10 men on base.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (16-10)

FORT MYERS 8, ST. LUCIE 4 (BOX)

The Mighty Mussels handed St. Lucie another rare loss, their second in a row, finally giving them double-digit losses this season. The game was back-and-forth initially, with St. Lucie taking the lead and Fort Myers playing catch-up and tying it, but all that changed in the fifth. Left in for just one too many pitches, Joander Suarez loaded up the bases and his replacement, Brendan Hardy, let them all score and then some, allowing five runs in the inning in total, and that was all she wrote.
