Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (14-36)

GAME ONE

ROCHESTER 4, SYRACUSE 1 / 7 (BOX)

Game one between Rochester and Syracuse did not go well for the good guys, as they trailed from the second inning on. Jesus Reyes surrendered a two run single in that frame, and Syracuse answered with their only run of the game in the bottom of the second, when Wilfredo Tovar drove in Cameron Maybin with a single (shout out to two former members of the Bench Mob). Reyes gave up runs in the fourth and fifth to basically put the game out of reach, as Syracuse just mustered together a handful of singles throughout the game.

GAME TWO

SYRACUSE 6, ROCHESTER 5 / 7 (BOX)

Game two went significantly better for our Triple-A Mets, though it looked like they were ticketed for another loss on the night. After a Mason Williams RBI single in the bottom of the second, recently acquired Robert Stock gave it back and more, giving up four in the third before getting relieved of his duties by Trey Cobb. Cobb kept them off the board until the fifth, when he surrendered one run, but the bottom of that frame started the comeback in earnest.

Jonathan Villar walked to lead off, and Chance Sisco singled after a Cheslor Cuthbert flyout. an Orlando Calixte sacrifice fly and a Khalil Lee triple cut the deficit to 5-3. Wilfredo Tovar singled Lee home to make it a one run game. The Mets tied it in the bottom of the sixth, when Mason Williams singled home Drew Jackson, after the latter singled and stole second.

The seventh and the top of the eighth went scoreless, and the Mets went into the bottom of the eighth with Lee taking his rightful place on second as the free runner. Cesar Puello, in his only at bat in game two, doubled him home for the walk off win.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (17-32)

ABERDEEN 2, BROOKLYN 0 / 6 (BOX)

Yes, reader, Brooklyn and Aberdeen played in a six inning game — as the rains came down and came down heavily in the aforementioned sixth inning, causing the game to end prematurely.

Brooklyn really was not doing much of anything in those six innings, anyway. They had four hits; two by Antoine Duplantis, and a pair of singles by Brett Baty and Francisco Álvarez (the duo that will be representing the Mets organization at the Futures Game on July 11th). Cam Opp was a truly hard luck loser, has he struck out seven and surrendered just three hits and one earned run. It was just a poor game from the Cyclones.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (27-24)

GAME ONE

CLEARWATER 5, ST. LUCIE 3 / 7 (BOX)

St. Lucie and Clearwater had a back and forth fight, with the Threshers striking first with two in the bottom of the second. Alex Ramirez continued his solid 2021 campaign with an RBI double in the top of the third, but Junior Santos served that right back with a solo shot in the bottom of the frame. The Mets came back again, though this time actually tied the score, when Cole Kleszcz tripled home Jaylen Palmer, who later scored on a fielding error. Junior Santos, (who had the rare complete game loss) however, continued to give runs right back to Clearwater, serving up a two run homer in the bottom of the sixth, putting the game away.

GAME TWO

CLEARWATER 4, ST. LUCIE 2 / 7 (BOX)

St. Lucie got on the board right away in game two, as Jose Peroza doubled home Nic Gaddis in the first. Oscar Rojas served up a game tying solo shot in the bottom of the second, but the Mets got the lead right back with a solo homer off the bat of Gaddis, making it 2-1. That score held all the way until the sixth inning, when St. Lucie tried (and failed) to stretch Rojas deep into the game. A leadoff single, a two run homer, and another single put St. Lucie behind 3-2 with no outs in the frame. Reyson Santos came in one batter after the single, but allowed him to score on a double, putting them behind 4-2. Branden Fryman singled in the seventh, and Jaylen Palmer reached on an error to put the go-ahead run at the plate, but Alex Ramirez struck out to end the game.

COMPLEX: FCL METS (2-1)
