Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (34-54)

GAME ONE

METS 4, BISON 3 / 7 (BOX)

Syracuse hopped out to an early lead in game one of the double header, scoring three of their four runs in the second inning. Wagner Lagrange walked with the bases loaded to drive in the first run, and David Rodriguez followed that walk up with a single. Cody Bohanek drove in the last run of the inning with a sacrifice fly. Buffalo drove in one in the fourth and fifth to make it a 3-2 ballgame. Wilfredo Tovar answered with a big insurance run by way of a sacrifice fly in the third. Eric Orze served up a solo shot in the eighth, but held the lead regardless. Tom Hackimer came in for the save in the final inning, who promptly got a fly out, a ground out and a strikeout on 17 pitches to shut the door for the win.

GAME TWO

METS 2, BISON 1 / 7 (BOX

Vance Worley got off to a rough start in game two, walking the second batter of the game and subsequently serving up a double to put the Mets in a quick 1-0 deficit. He did, however, put that issue to bed immediately and shove from the second inning on. He gave up just two hits from then on. The Mets tied it in the second inning on a throwing error by the catcher on a David Thompson steal, and Josh Reddick put them ahead for good with an RBI single in the sixth.

ROSTER ALERT: David Rodriguez assigned to Syracuse Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (41-49)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

ROSTER ALERT: David Rodriguez assigned to Syracuse Mets from Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (35-55)

HUSDON VALLEY 7, BROOKLYN 6 (BOX)

J.T. Ginn bounced back a bit after his last start, when he surrendered five runs. He only gave up three over six innings in this one, though he only struck out three as well. It was better than his last time out, which is always good to see when someone is coming back from something as serious as Tommy John surgery. The Cyclones offense did not wake up until the fifth, when Jose Peroza launched a solo home run to make it 2-1 Hudson Valley. Ronny Mauricio (who also had a few incredible plays in the field) hit a ball literally at his eyeballs over the wall to make it 3-2 Brooklyn in the sixth, and Luke Ritter added two more with a two RBI single, making it 5-2. Ginn handed them a run back in bottom of the sixth, and Conner O’Neil surrendered two more to tie it up in the seventh. The Cyclones briefly took the lead with an Antoine Duplantis RBI ground out, but Evy Ruibal served up an absolute mammoth two run home run to Anthony Volpe to lose a wild one.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (48-41)

ST. LUCIE 8, TAMPA 7 (BOX)

St. Lucie won a wild back and forth affair in this one, with them going down 3-0 in the first by way of a three run home run. They got it all back in the top of the second, starting with a Rowdy Jordan RBI single. Alex Ramirez chased one home with a fielder’s choice, and a double steal of second and home saw Cesar Berbesi tied it up. Tampa scored two more in the bottom of the second to make it 5-3, and St. Lucie clawed one back by way of a JT Schwartz double. Tampa, you guessed it, scored another run in the bottom of the third, pushing their lead to 6-4 — though they would largely be shut down from there.

The Mets comeback continued in the fourth, when Ramirez drove in another run, this one by way of a ground out. Kevin Kendall chased not one, but two, home on an error by the Tampa first baseman, finally giving St. Lucie a lead in this high scoring affair. Jack-Thomas Wold drove in their eighth run with a ground out, making it 8-6. Tampa would get one back with a seventh inning homer off of Liam McCall, but that would be the last run they scored, as Reyson Santos spun a hitless, two inning save.
