Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (27-51)

SYRACUSE 6, ROCHESTER 3 (BOX)

Syracuse scored early and often, with Drew Jackson starting things off on the right foot by leading off the game with a homer on the very first pitch of the game. The Red Wings tied things up early and even took the lead at one point, but Jerad Eickhoff settled down after giving up runs in the first and second and ended up giving Syracuse a quality start while the bats did their thing.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Jake Reed from Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (33-45)

GAME ONE

PORTLAND 5, BINGHAMTON 2 / 7 (BOX)

Luis Carpio gave the Ponies a 1-0 lead in the third, but Connor Grey was unable to hold onto it, allowing the Sea Dogs to tie it in the fourth and then jump out into a commanding lead in the fifth. Jake Mangum added a run in the bottom of the sixth on his fifth homer of the year, but that would be all Binghamton could manage.

GAME TWO

BINGHAMTON 8, PORTLAND 2 (BOX)

Brett Baty put Brooklyn on the board in the nightcap, a makeup from the postponement all the way back on June 19, and the offense kept the pressure up, plating three more in the fifth. Dustin Beggs gave up two runs in the top of the sixth before being removed from the game, and things started looking a little hairy for the Ponies, but the offense bust things opened in the bottom of the inning, this time on the power of a Carlos Rincon grand slam.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (30-47)

HUDSON VALLEY 3, BROOKLYN 2 (BOX)

Brooklyn couldn’t figure out Hudson Valley Mitch Spence, getting shut out for six innings by the right-hander. They got on the board in the bottom of the fifth, plating a pair of runs off of reliever Trevor Holloway, but the two runs would not be enough. Starter Cam Opp and the Brooklyn bullpen weren’t by any means bad, combining to allow three runs, but when last I checked, three remained a larger number than two, and in the official rules of baseball, the team that scores the larger number of runs wins.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (41-37)

POSTPONED (RAIN)

COMPLEX: FCL METS (13-11)

FCL METS 13, FCL CARDINALS 10 (BOX)

Star of the Night

Carlos Rincon

Goat of the Night
