BINGHAMTON 5, RICHMOND 3 (Box)

The B-Mets started their first Eastern League Championship Series in roughly twenty years on the right foot, pulling out a win against the Richmond Flying Squirrels in the first game of the best-of-five series. Binghamton came out guns blazing, loading the bases against Clayton Blackburn in the 1st. While they were unable to cash in at all, as Travis Taijeron struck out to end the inning, they were able to push a run across the plate in the 2nd, when Brandon Nimmo smashed the first pitch he saw for a line drive into right that scored Wilfredo Tovar. Though Tyler Pill kept Richmond off the board in the bottom of the inning, they scored a run off of him in the bottom of the 3rd, on a Daniel Carbonell RBI single.

Pill and Blackburn both threw shutout innings in the 4th, but allowed runs in the 5th. Binghamton scored twice, plating runs on a Darrell Ceciliani an RBI single and a Xorge Carrillo sac fly, while Richmond scored once, on a Myles Schroder pinch-hit RBI single. Pill pitched one more inning before giving way to the B-Mets bullpen. The relief corps did an excellent job of run prevention, even though Paul Sewald and Chase Huchingson made it hard on themselves in the 7th, loading the bases via walks. Fortunately, Huchingson was able to induce a double play to get out of the inning unscathed.

In the top of the 8th, Binghamton increased their narrow 3-2 lead by pushing across two more runs. Kyle Crick quickly got two outs, striking out Travis Taijeron and Xorge Carrillo. After drawing a walk, Wilfredo Tovar scored on a Dustin Lawley double. Lawley, one batter later, was driven in himself by Brandon Nimmo's second hit of the game. A very pumped up Hansel Robles pitched the bottom of the 8th, and quickly found himself in a jam, giving up a lead off triple to that pesky Daniel Carbonell. He kept his composure, stranding the Cuban at third. Cody Satterwhite pitched the 9th and threw a perfect inning to lock down his second post season save, giving Binghamton their first ELCS victory since they won game four against the Harrisburg Senators on 9/14/94.

Depending on how the series turns out, this might be the last Daily Prospect Report I write for the year. If so, I just want to thank everyone for reading, commenting, and generally just validating all of the work we all do writing up these reports. Overall, this was a great year for the Mets' minor league teams, and I hope that everyone had as much fun following them as I did.
