Triple-A: Syracuse Mets (39-62)

LEHIGH VALLEY 3, SYRACUSE 2 (BOX)

Syracuse got on the board first in the loss, when a rehabbing Jose Peraza smoked a double to score Martin Cervenka in the third inning. That lead did not last, as Zavk Godley got touched up in the fifth, after four scoreless frames to start the game. Lehigh Valley strung together three singles after a lead off hit by pitch, chasing home three runs in the process.

The Mets made a two out bid in the ninth, with Wilfredo Tovar reaching on a single and Mason Williams doubling him home. He would be stranded at second, however, when Ceslor Cuthbert flew out to center to end the game.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets recalled RHP Yennsy Diaz from Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets optioned RF Khalil Lee to Syracuse Mets.

ROSTER ALERT: New York Mets sent RHP Jake Reed on a rehab assignment to Syracuse Mets.

Double-A: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (46-53)

POSTPONED (COVID-19)

High-A: Brooklyn Cyclones (40-62)

WILMINGTON 6, BROOKLYN 0 (BOX)

Not only did Brooklyn get shut out, they also got one hit, with their sole base knock coming on a third inning single by Zach Ashford. On top of that, they only walked twice — they simply were outclassed by the Wilmington pitchers.

The biggest part of this game was J.T. Ginn. Ginn only surrendered one run but was far from sharp in his road back from Tommy John surgery, surrendering seven hits and striking out just two in 5.2 innings pitched. Josh Hejka relieved him and threw 1.1 scoreless innings — and then the floodgates opened. Luis Montes and Bryce Montes de Oca got hit and hit hard, both surrendering three hits in their innings. Montas surrendered two runs and Montes de Oca surrendered three, which was more than enough for the Blue Rocks.

Low-A: St. Lucie Mets (54-48)

JUPITER 6, ST. LUCIE 1 (BOX)

Justin Guerrera pushed the Mets ahead with his first home run of the year in the second inning — and that would be the end of the Mets offense in this one. They only mustered two more hits in the loss, alongside four walks. They simply did not hit enough to win.

On the pitching side, Jordan Yamamoto had three scoreless frames in a rehab assignment before surrendering a fourth inning run. Saul Gonzalez got tattooed for four runs in the sixth inning, and Jupiter scored a run off of Sammy Tavarez for good measure in the eighth, though the game was largely decided by then.
