Triple-A - Las Vegas 51s (56-86)

NO GAME (SEASON OVER)

Double-A - Binghamton Rumble Ponies (1-0)

BINGHAMTON 4, TRENTON 1 (GAME 1)

Binghamton drew first blood in this mini Mets-Yankees playoff tilt, riding exceptional pitching (recording 12 strikeouts total) and some early timely hitting to a 4-1 victory in Game 1 of the Eastern Division Championship Series. Corey Oswalt was a bit erratic in the top of the first inning, surrendering a couple of singles and uncorking a wild pitch which allowed Trenton to grab an early lead. The Ponies stormed right back in the bottom of the inning. Luis Guillorme did what he does best—led off by reaching base via walk. Kevin Kaczmarski worked a walk of his own to put two men on for Peter Alonso, who doubled over the center fielder’s head to plate both runs.

The Ponies wasted another chance in the second when Patrick Biondi doubled and stole third with one out, but this time Guillorme and Kacmarski struck out to strand the runner. Binghamton would cash in two more in the bottom of the third, when Alonso walked and Kevin Taylor singled, and Matt Oberste followed with a two-run double of his own. By this point, Oswald was grooving, making a three-run lead seem much larger as he retired 17 of the final 19 Trenton batters he faced.

After seven impressive innings from the Eastern League pitcher of the year, Binghamton turned it over to their stellar bullpen (unscored upon since August 26). Tim Peterson threw a perfect eighth, striking out two, before Tyler Bashlor turned in a bit of a Benitez, walking the leadoff hitter and allowing a double to Dante Bichette, Jr. to put runners on second and third with none out before turning around to strike out the next three batters and preserve the win.

Ricky Knapp will take the ball for the Binghamton tonight in Game 2, opposed by Trenton’s Brody Koerner.

Advanced-A - St. Lucie Mets (30-40/63-75)

NO GAME (SEASON OVER)

Low-A - Columbia Fireflies (28-42/68-70)

NO GAME (SEASON OVER)

Short-A - Brooklyn Cyclones (24-51)

STATEN ISLAND 2, BROOKLYN 1 / 6 INNINGS (Box)

Brooklyn didn’t fare as well as their parent affiliate with the rain-shortened affairs, as the Cyclones dropped a 2-1 game that was called after five-and-one-half innings. Briam Campusano pitched well, but wound up a hard-luck loser as two runs scored on ground outs in the second inning with the help of a passed ball and a wild pitch. The Cyclones reversed the score where it didn’t count—in the hit column—as they outhit Staten Island 2-1 in the game, but Jose Maria—who doubled in Dylan Snypes—was stranded at third in the fourth inning. Brooklyn went quietly in the top of the sixth, which wound up being their last chance, as rain delayed the game until it was eventually called.
