Mets AA - BINGHAMTON 6, NEW HAMPSHIRE 0 (suspended): The B-Mets and Fisher Cats played into the bottom of the second inning before heavy rain suspended play.

Play resumes Wednesday at 5:35 p.m. A seven-inning contest will follow the completion of the suspended nine-inning game. Against New Hampshire starter Matt Boyd, Kyle Johnson led off the bottom of the first with a single. Matt Reynolds worked a one-out walk. Plawecki then came to the plate and smacked a two-run double. Plawecki moved to third on an error by second baseman Jon Berti. He scored on Cory Vaughn's single for a 3-0 lead. The hot hitting continued in the second inning. Johnson and Reynolds each worked two-out walks. Plawecki then belted a three-run homer. That brought Jayce Boyd to the plate in pouring rain. With a full count to Boyd, the game was suspended. Matt Bowman started for Binghamton and allowed one hit in two scoreless frames. Plawecki’s five RBIs are already the most by a B-Met in a game this season. He has 27 RBIs in May. Box
Mets High A - BREVARD COUNTY 2, ST. LUCIE 1: St. Lucie's ninth-inning rally fell short on a night 2011 first-round pick Brandon Nimmo suffered what the Mets labeled a sprained left ankle. The center fielder hustled to cut off a double by Nathan Orf in right-center in the third inning and came up hobbling. He managed to get the throw into the infield and continued to jump on one leg to the warning track. Nimmo stretched out his leg near the track and did some light jogging and sprints to test himself. He was removed from the game, but managed to walk off the field under his own power. Jorge Lopez shut down the Mets through eight innings, allowing two hits and two walks. In the ninth, Dilson Herrera led off with a single, advanced to second on passed ball. Gilbert Gomez , who replaced Nimmo, then singled to put runners on the corners. Kevin Shackelford entered and coaxed a run-scoring groundout from T.J. Rivera. He then struck out Jairo Perez and Cam Maron to end the game. The Manatees mustered five hits, but one was a leadoff homer from Jose Sermo against Michael Fulmer in the third. The Manatees loaded the bases with no outs that inning and scored another run on a fielder's choice by Alfredo Rodriguez. Fulmer got a strikeout and double play to stop the bleeding. Fulmer walked four and hit two batters in his five-inning appearance. Hunter Carnevale contributed two scoreless relief innings. Paul Sewald tossed a perfect eighth. Gomez finished with two of the Mets' four hits. Box
