Mets Minor League Roundup 7/10: Columbia Rallies For Five Runs In Ninth To Down Charleston

Mets Minor League Roundup 7/10: Columbia Rallies For Five Runs In Ninth To Down Charleston

Mets A (ADV) - Jupiter 3, St. Lucie 0: The Jupiter Hammerheads shut out the St. Lucie Mets 3-0 on Monday at Roger Dean Stadium. The teams ended up splitting their four-game series after the Mets won the first two games. Jupiter used four pitchers to register the shutout. Starter Jeff Brigham stifled the Mets over six innings. He scattered four singles, did not walk a batter and struck out nine. Relievers Evan Beal, Jose Quijada and Felipe Gonzalez each tossed a scoreless frame to finish out the contest. The Hammerheads scored the only run they needed off of Major League rehabber Josh Smoker in the second inning. Dustin Geiger started the inning with a double and went on to score on a ground out by Stone Garrett. Smoker allowed one run and two singles in two innings. He struck out two. The Mets had a chance to tie the game in the seventh. Peter Alonso and Tim Tebow started the inning with singles off of Beal. Wuilmer Becerra followed with a sac bunt to move up runners. But Anthony Dimino followed with a grounder to third base and Miguel Rojas threw out Alonso at the plate to preserve the 1-0 Jupiter lead. Beal then got J.C. Rodriguez to ground out to end the threat. Justin Dunn took over on the mound after Smoker departed. He was effective and efficient over his first five innings, collecting two double play balls. However, he surrendered a two-out homer to Zach Sullivan with one out in the eighth inning to put the Hammerheads up 3-0. Dunn ended up allowing two runs on four hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked one. Tebow's single in the seventh inning extended his hitting streak to nine games. He's reached safely in all 14 games with St. Lucie. Patrick Mazeika went 3 for 4.

Mets A - Columbia 5, Charleton 4: The Fireflies rallied for five runs in the ninth inning on Monday and downed the RiverDogs, 5-4, at Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park. The largest comeback win of the season was highlighted by Desmond Lindsay's game-tying grand slam over the left-field wall. Later in the frame, Dash Winningham drove in the go-ahead run. Columbia (7-11, 47-39) left 10 men on base over the first eight innings but took care of business when it mattered. The first three hitters reached base to begin the ninth with Charleston (12-7, 46-42) reliever Hobie Harris on the mound. First, Colby Woodmansee singled and then Harris plunked the next two batters: Ian Strom and Andres Gimenez. After Luis Carpio flew out to left, RiverDogs manager Patrick Osborn called closer Garrett Mundell (L, 0-4) out of the bullpen. The first batter Mundell faced was Lindsay, and the Mets prospect took him deep. It was Lindsay's first professional grand slam and the seventh homer of the season. The Fireflies wouldn't settle for extra innings, though. The next hitter, Jay Jabs, walked and - with two outs - swiped second base. Winningham then charged a line drive to the left-center field alley and Jabs scored the go-ahead run. Adonis Uceta (W, 4-0) then retired the side in order in the bottom of the ninth to clinch the comeback. Charleston jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second. Carlos Vidal plated two runs with a double off of starter Gabriel Llanes. The right-hander settled down and gutted through five innings, allowing just those two runs. Llanes struck out five as well. The home team pulled ahead 3-0 after Brandon Wagner went yard in the sixth. Two innings later, Wagner doubled to kick off the eighth. Vidal drove him in with a single moment later. The four-run deficit is the largest Columbia has overcome in a game this season. It was a collective effort: every Firefly hitter reached base safely and four batters recorded multi-hit games (Gimenez, Woodmansee, Jacob Zanon, Dan Rizzie). BOX
