Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (15-37)


Vance Worley hasn’t pitched at the Major League level since 2017 and at all since 2018. With the Mets’ need for arms as of late, and more performances like this, the bespectacled right-hander might be able to stamp his return envelope to the show. Worley threw eight strong innings against the Rochester Red Wings, allowing one run on six hits and a walk. Another former major leaguer, Sean Nolin, started for Rochester, but the Syracuse offense had no problems with him or the bullpen that followed.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Nick Tropeano from Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (18-34)


The Flying Squirrels provided their own fireworks prior to their scheduled post-game Independence Day fireworks show, scoring three runs in the third, four runs in the fourth, one apiece in the fifth, sixth, and seventh, and then two more in the eighth. Luc Rennie was responsible for seven of those runs, and the trio of Yeizo Campos, Andrew Mitchell, and Jared Robinson were responsible for five. The only real positive to take out of this one was Mark Vientos, whose bat turned white hot after a brief lull in the middle of the week. The “left fielder” went 3-4 with a double and a home run, his 13th of the season, bringing his batting line for the season up to .283/.352/.597. The second-youngest player in the Double-A Northeast Northeast- only Riley Greene is younger- his thirteen homers trail only Dermis Garcia and Taylor Snyder, both of whom have fourteen so far this season.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (18-34)


Following Joey Chestnut’s win in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest- the California native downed a world-record setting 76 hot dogs- the Cyclones dropped one to the Aberdeen IronBirds in a laughter. The game was close early on- like the first two innings- but Aberdeen started running away with things after a three run fifth that knocked Alec Kisena out of the game. Major leaguer John Means started the game in a rehab appearance and Luke Ritter homered off of him, so props, but Garret Stallings basically completely shut the team down, spinning five strong innings of relief. Brooklyn mustered no offense against him, and really, they should’ve relished their opportunity to face someone closer to their talent level than Means.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (28-26)


Clearwater second baseman Edgar Made homered in the bottom of the first to give the Threshers a lead that they’d hold for most of the game. Jaylen Palmer tied the game up at 1-1 with an RBI triple in the sixth and Brandon McIlwain put St. Lucie up in the seventh with an RBI single, but the Threshers quickly tied things back up in the bottom of the inning. Willy Taveras, in his second inning of work, gave up the winning run in the bottom of the ninth after allowing a pair of singles and then a sac fly.
