Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (38-58)

GAME ONE

ROCHESTER 7, SYRACUSE 1 / 7 (BOX)

Vance Worley was solid early on, recording ten straight outs to begin the contest, but Nationals catching prospect Keibert Ruiz broke the streak with a solo homer to make it 1-0 Rochester. Worley seemed shook, as he allowed another homer in the fourth, a hard hit double, and then two more runs in the fifth on another two hard hit balls. Down 4-0, the game wasn’t completely out of reach for Syracuse, but Yennsy Diaz took care of that in the seventh, giving up three more runs and making it a 7-0 ballgame. Cheslor Cuthbert and Wagner Lagrange hit back-to-back doubles to put the Mets on the board at least, but the outcome of this one was never really in doubt.

GAME TWO

SYRACUSE 5, ROCHESTER 0 (BOX)

Zack Godley was godly. Well, somewhat godly, as he did allow a hit, a walk, and he hit a batter, but regardless of the nomenclature, Syracuse won the nightcap of their doubleheader because Godley put up six goose eggs and Arodys Vizcaino put up one in the seventh. The Mets took the lead in the third on a Mason Williams two-run homer and got insurance runs from Cody Bohanek and Martin Cervenka in the fourth and sixth.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (44-51)

BINGHAMTON 7, NEW HAMPSHIRE 5 (BOX)

Both teams scored early and often, but the Rumble Ponies pulled ahead late and took one from the Fisher Cats. Dustin Beggs pitched alright, as did the relievers behind him, but it was the offense that was the star of this game. Every Binghamton hitter got on base at least once, with Luis Carpio the only one to actually go hitless. Carlos Cortes, Jake Mangum, and Quinn Brodey all had two-hit games, while Mark Vientos had a three-hit game, one of those hits being his twenty-second home run of the season.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (37-59)

GAME ONE

ABERDEEN 2, BROOKLYN 1 / 8 (BOX)

Brooklyn boy Jaylen Palmer hit a Brooklyn bomb in the bottom of the first to put the Cyclones on the board, but J.T. Ginn gave it right back in the top of the second, tying the game at one apiece. It would stay tied until the seventh, and then the eighth, extra innings in this first game of a two-game set. With the ghost runner at second to start the inning, the IronBirds did the usual bit and sacrificed him over to third and lo and behold, he came around to score on a sac fly. In the bottom of the inning, Ed Blankmeyer opted to have Antoine Duplantis hit, rather than lay down the bunt. Duplantis ended up striking out, and the Cyclones’ ghost runner was left on base after Palmer and Ronny Mauricio grounded out back-to-back.

GAME TWO

BROOKLYN 1, ABERDEEN 0 (BOX)

David Griffin lived dangerously in game two, with runners in scoring position in the first, third, fourth, and sixth, but he and the defense wiggled out of those dangerous situations every single time, with him and Bryce Montes de Oca combining to throw a shutout. Iron Birds pitcher Connor Gillispie was equally solid, but Brooklyn scratched out a Jose Reyes run in the fourth, with Jaylen Palmer drawing a walk, stealing second, and coming home to score on a Jeremy Vasquez line drive. The one run was all Brooklyn would be able to manage, but thankfully it would be all they needed.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (50-45)

DAYTONA 9, ST. LUCIE 5 (BOX)

The Tortugas took an early lead and the St. Lucie offense was never able to catch up. Junior Santos struck out a career-high 7 batters, but had problems with the gopher ball, as Daytona hit a pair of homers that accounted for four runs. Oddly enough, after the offense started clawing back, reliever Reyson Santos allowed three runs in the eighth to really put the game out of reach. It really was not a good afternoon for anyone named Santos I guess.

COMPLEX FCL Mets: (23-16)

FCL METS 6, FCL ASTROS 5 (BOX)

Star of the Night

Mark Vientos

Goat of the Night

Reyson Santos
