ROCHESTER 4, SYRACUSE 1/7 (BOX)
The first game between Rochester and Syracuse did not go well for the good guys, as they were trailing in the second set. Jesus Reyes gave up a two-run single in that frame, and Syracuse responded with his only point of the game late in the second, when Wilfredo Tovar led Cameron Maybin with a single (yell at two former Bench Mob members). Reyes gave up the points in the fourth and fifth to put the game out of reach, as Syracuse collected just a handful of singles throughout the game.

SYRACUSE 6, ROCHESTER 5/7 (BOX)
The second game went significantly better for our Triple-A Mets, although it looked like they had been ticketed to another loss on the night. After a Mason Williams RBI single in the end of the second, recently acquired Robert Stock returned it and more, dropping four in the third before being relieved of his duties by Trey Cobb. Cobb kept them off the board until fifth, when he gave up a point, but the bottom of that frame started the comeback in earnest.
Jonathan Villar walked to start and Chance Sisco scored after a flyout from Cheslor Cuthbert. a sacrifice fly from Orlando Calixte and a triple from Khalil Lee reduced the deficit to 5-3. Wilfredo Tovar picked Lee at home to make it a one-point game. The Mets tied in the bottom of the sixth when Mason Williams picked Drew Jackson at home after Jackson picked and stole second.
The seventh and the start of the eighth scored no goals, and the Mets came in late in the eighth with Lee taking his rightful second spot as a free runner. Cesar Puello, his only batting in Game 2, passed him at home for the win on foot.

ABERDEEN 2, BROOKLYN 0/6 (BOX)
Yes, reader, Brooklyn and Aberdeen played in a six-inning game – as the rains fell and fell heavily in the aforementioned sixth inning, causing the game to end prematurely.
Brooklyn really didn’t do much in those six innings, anyway. They had four hits; two by Antoine Duplantis, and a pair of singles by Brett Baty and Francisco Ãlvarez (the duo who will represent the Mets organization at the Futures Game on July 11). Cam Opp was really unlucky, he struck out seven at bat and allowed just three hits and one earned run. It was just a bad Cyclones game.

CLEAR WATER 5, ST. LUCIE 3/7 (BOX)
St. Lucie and Clearwater had a two-way fight, the Threshers hitting first with two late in the second. Alex Ramirez continued his strong 2021 campaign with an RBI brace at the top of the third, but Junior Santos served him up straight away with a solo shot down the frame. The Mets came back again, although this time around tied the game, when Cole Kleszcz tripled at home Jaylen Palmer, who then scored from a field error. Junior Santos, (who had the rare complete loss of the game), however, continued to give points to Clearwater, serving a two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth, putting the game aside.

CLEARWATER 4, ST. LUCIE 2/7 (BOX)
St. Lucia entered the board straight away in Game 2, while Jose Peroza passed Nic Gaddis at home in Game 1. Oscar Rojas served a game tying the solo shot late in the second, but the Mets regained the lead with a solo homerun off Gaddis’ stick, bringing the score to 2-1. That score held until the sixth inning, when St. Lucia tried (and failed) to stretch Rojas deep into the game. A starting single, a two-run homerun and another single put St. Lucie behind 3-2 with no put out in the frame. Reyson Santos got into a batter after the singles but allowed him to score on a double, putting them behind 4-2. Branden Fryman hit a single in the seventh, and Jaylen Palmer reached on an error to give the go-ahead for home plate, but Alex Ramirez called out to end the game.
