Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (23-46)


Buffalo actually led in this game, and did so immediately, with Mason Williams hitting a solo shot in the first inning. The Mets tacked on in the second inning, with one run coming off a Cesar Puello single and another off an Albert Almora sacrifice fly. The lead did not last long, as Josh Walker served up a three run bomb in the third. The Mets got the lead back shortly in the fifth, on the back of a Patrick Mazeika single, but quickly — and decisively — lost the lead in the bottom of the frame. Walker gave up four in the bottom of the fifth, two on his own, and two inherited runs when Geoff Hartlieb came in to relieve him. Regardless, it was a poor outing. The Mets and Bisons traded runs in the seventh and eighth, but the big fifth inning was a back breaker for the Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (26-41)


Erie and Binghamton were locked in a scoreless pitcher’s duel for the vast majority of this game. Adam Oller, Allan Winans, and Andrew Edwards combined for eight scoreless innings, surrendering just one hit and striking out 14. Binghamton took the lead in the bottom of the eighth by way of a Mark Vientos home run, as the lanky prospect continued to absolutely rake since his horrible start to the season. It all came crashing down for the Ponies in the ninth, though when Tom Hackimer surrendered three runs — two on a single and one on a double steal — and blew the game.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (25-42)


J.T. Ginn is the big story in the win. He made his debut in High-A after beginning his professional career down in Low-A, and acquitted himself well. He struck out six over 5.2 innings, surrendering just a single run — an RBI double that chased him from the game in the sixth. All in all, its nearly impossible to argue with his performance.

Offensively, the Cyclones gave him plenty of support, scoring four runs in the first four innings. The first two runs came in the second, with Luis Gonzalez driving in one with a double, and Gonzalez coming home on an error off a Jose Mena single. Jeremy Vasquez chased one home with a sacrifice fly, and New York native Joe Suozzi chased one home with a double.

Brooklyn’s bullpen made it dicey, as Conner O’Neil surrendered a two run homer to make it 4-3. Gonzalez drove in a run with an eighth, which ended up being enormous. The Cyclones surrendered a run in the ninth, but held on for the 5-4 win.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (37-33)


After two scoreless frames to start off, Bradenton got to starter Franklin Parra, pushing three runs across in the third. Jose Peroza hit a solo homer in the fourth to make it 3-1, but Bradenton got it back in the fifth. Jose Colina got that run back, hitting a solo shot of his own to make it 4-2. That score held until the eighth, when Bradenton broke it open. They scored two in the eighth and two in the ninth, putting the game to bed.
