Mets Minor League Player of the Day: Binghamton LHSP Steven Matz.
CONGRATULATIONS BINGHAMTON METS - EASTERN LEAGUE CHAMPIONS
Binghamton (3-0) pinches Richmond (0-3) 2-1 and sweeps the series.
A pinch hit double by Jayce Boyd scored pinch runner, Gavin Cecchini, for a walk-off win and series sweep over E.L. West Division Champ Richmond .
We witnessed Matz the Magnificent tonight, in rare form: 7.1 IP, R, 2 H, 2 BB, 11 K. Matz took a no hitter into the 8th inning, and left the game with a 1-0 lead and runners on 1st and 2nd with 1 out.
Hansel Robles: (BS, 1) 0.2 IP, 0 R, H, 0 BB, K. After getting the 2nd out, Robles allowed a run scoring single. With the inherited runner scoring, Matz earned a no-decision.
Cody Satterwhite (W, 2-0) shut down the Flying Squirrels in the 9th: 1.0 IP, 0 R, H, 0 BB, K.
Travis Taijeron: 1-4, R. (Taijeron also had an outfield assist, throwing out the runner trying to go from 1st to 3rd on the game tying single in the 8th inning. That put out may have saved the game for the Mets.)
Xorge Carrrillo: 1-4, HR, 2B, 2 RBI, R. (Carrillo batted in the 1st run of the game, scoring Taijeron from 3rd on a sac fly. He later got a single in the 9th and Gavin Cecchini was called in to pinch run.)
Jayce Boyd, pinch hitting for Cody Satterwhite, promptly doubled to center field, bringing home Cecchini with the winning run.)
