Binghamton B-Mets Clinch Playoff Spot

by Rachel Baker on August 18, 2013

The Binghamton Mets officially punched their ticket into the postseason with a 5-4 win over the New Britain Rock Cats on Saturday night at NYSEG Stadium.

In the sixth, Binghamton busted out five runs on four hits, and took advantage of three walks in the frame. Summers walked the first two batters of the frame, and gave up an RBI single by Josh Rodriguez down the left field line for Binghamton’s first run. He was then removed from the game for Ryan O’Rourke with runners at the corners and one out. O’Rourke walked Rhyne Hughes to load the bases, and Allan Dykstra slapped an RBI infield hit off of the third base bag to make it a 4-2 game.

After facing two batters, O’Rourke handed the ball to Cole Johnson with the bases loaded. Cory Vaughn welcomed Johnson to the game by knocking a two-run single, tying the game at four. After a fielder’s choice, Travis Taijeron snuck a ground ball past Sano at third base for the go-ahead double.
