Binghamton Mets Knocked Out Of Playoffs

The Binghamton Mets had their hopes of winning their third Eastern League Championship ended by the Trenton Thunder on Friday night.  Trenton topped the B-Mets 3-0 at NYSEG Stadium to sweep Binghamton in three straight games.

Trenton took the first two games in the series in Trenton by scores of 6-5 (in 10 innings) and 2-1.  In the regular season the B-Mets had the edge in the series 10-7.

In two of the three games the B-Mets’ bats were stone-cold.  In the last game Binghamton stranded 15 runners.  The B-Mets also struggled at the plate during the final month of the regular season and no doubt missed the production of Cesar Puello, a potential Eastern League MVP, who was suspended for testing positive to performance enhancing drugs after playing in 91 games.  Puello led the EL in batting average at .326 and was ninth in RBI with 73.

Harrisburg knocked out Erie in four games to win the Western Division Championship.  The Senators travel to Trenton to open the best-of-five Eastern League Championship series tomorrow night.  Game two will also be in Trenton with any remaining games set for Harrisburg.
