Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (27-52)

ROCHESTER 2, SYRACUSE 1 (BOX)

Both starting pitchers were excellent on this night, as newly acquired Trevor Williams threw six innings of one run ball for the Mets, making his case for the next man up when the next pitching injury inevitably happens. Rochester strung together three hits on him in the sixth to push a run across and slightly spoil the effort, but the overall picture was very good.

Offensively, the Triple-A Mets were as lifeless as their major league brethren, pushing just one run across — a solo shot by former bench mob member Mason Williams — in the eighth inning. Tom Windle had a chance to get the game into extras, but a walk and two singles in the bottom of the ninth saw Syracuse get walked off.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (34-45)

BINGHAMTON 4, PORTLAND 3 (BOX)

Binghamton ran out too a quick lead, but a near bullpen collapse almost spoiled the day. Their second began in the second inning, when Hayden Senger continued his solid season by smacking a solo homer to make it 1-0. Brett Baty continued his strong season with an RBI single in the third, pushing the lead to 2-0. Quinn Brodey chased their third run home in the fifth by way of a fielding error, and Baty added his second RBI of the game with a sacrifice fly in the seventh.

While the offense was peppering Portland with runs, Adam Oller was downright nasty on the bump. He struck out 12 over seven scoreless innings, with just three hits besmirching his stat line. He was dominant. The bullpen struggled, though. Andrew Edwards was brought in for the eighth inning and gave up two runs in a shaky frame, and Eric Orze scattered three hits and a run before clinging onto the save for dear life.

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (30-48)

HUDSON VALLEY 5, BROOKLYN 3 (BOX)

The first four and a half innings were quiet and scoreless, with Brooklyn putting the first runs of the game on the board in the bottom of the fifth. Joe Suozzi tripled home Jeremy Vasquez and Jose Peroza, after the latter two singled their way on base. That lead did not last long, however, as a combination of Justin Lasko and Josh Hejka surrendered four runs in the sixth. Vasquez got one back with an RBI double in the bottom of the frame, but the offense would stop there. Evy Ruibal surrendered an insurance run in the eighth, making the deficit 5-3. Brooklyn made it interesting in the bottom of the ninth, with Francisco Álvarez leading off the inning with a walk, and Peroza walking with two outs. The rally was fruitless, though, as Cody Bohanek struck out looking to end it.
