Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (23-48)


Carlos Carrasco looked good in his rehab start, allowing a pair of hits over three innings, striking out six Trenton/Buffalo Thunder/Bisons. His replacement, Jesus Reyes, was more or less just as solid, allowing a run in the fifth, but his replacement, Roel Ramirez was not. Ramirez replaced Reyes in the bottom of the eighth and allowed back-to-back homers from Kevin Smith and Tyler White to give the Trenton/Buffalo Thunder/Bisons the lead. Syracuse went down 1-2-3 in the ninth and just like that, they dropped their seventh game in a row. A silver lining, for as bad as the 23-48 Syracuse Mets are, the Kannapolis Cannon Ballers are also 23-44, while the Hartford Yard Goats are an even worse 22-49, and the Visalia Rawhide an even more putrid 16-56.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (27-41)


Despite launching four homer runs, Binghamton fell to the SeaWolves. Oscar De La Cruz did not bring his A game, as he gave up seven runs- six earned- over five innings while giving up eight hits, hitting two batters, and striking out minimal batters.

ROSTER ALERT: RHP Josh Hejka assigned to Binghamton Rumble Ponies from Syracuse Mets.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (28-42)


Coming into the afternoon, Brooklyn had won five in a row against the Blue Rocks and were looking for the sweep. They turned the odds of making that a reality heavily in their favor by putting up a four spot in the bottom of the first inning. Luc Rennie scattered a pair of runs over his four innings of work, and Joe Cavallaro allowed a third in his two innings. The dam was going to burst eventually and it finally did in the seventh, when Colby Morris gave up a solo home run to Jack Dunn, tying things at 4-4. Things looked bad in the eighth when a Ronny Mauricio fielding error and Jeremy Ydens single put two men on with no outs, but Willy Taveras navigated out of the inning without allowing either runner to score. He struck out the side in the ninth as well, giving Brooklyn the opportunity to send the Coney Island faithful home happy in the bottom of the inning. Edgardo Fermin led the inning off with a walk, stole second, and then advanced to third on a wild pitch. Ronny Mauricio had already flied out and Fransisco Alvarez struck out in the in-between, so it was up to Luis Gonzalez. After fouling off a pitch, he drove a pitch right back the originator, past the pitcher and the shortstop, to win the ballgame. Comically, despite winning six in a row now, the Cyclones are still in the cellar, a testament to how poor their win/loss record has been this season.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (39-33)


At best, St. Lucie would sweep their series with the Bradenton; at worst, it would be a 3-3 split. The best possible outcome occurred, as the Mets outhit and outpitched the Marauders, blowing them out while simultaneously throwing a shutout. Jose Chacin threw six scoreless innings in his St. Lucie debut and his bullpen continued where he left off, with Sammy Tavarez, Luis Montas, and Brailin Gonzalez combining to throw three more. While it’s great that they all combined to not allow a single run, the four could’ve allowed one, two, five, even ten runs, and it still wouldn’t have mattered, as the offense absolutely unloaded on the Marauders. Every position player except catcher Juan Loyo logged at least one hit, with Bahamian wildcard Warren Saunders and burgeoning legitimate prospect Jose Peroza logging two and non-Tebow quarterback-turned-outfielder Brandon McIlwain logging three.

ROSTER ALERT: C Juan Uriarte assigned to St. Lucie Mets from Brooklyn Cyclones.
