Down to their Final Out, Trenton Rallies to Beat the BMets

AA: @ Trenton Thunder 6, Binghamton Mets 5 (10 innings)

bmetshatUh-oh. The Mets used a walk, a single, a bunt and a sacrifice fly from Wilfredo Tovar and an RBI single from Josh Rodriguez to take a 5-3 lead.

The Mets handed the ball to Jeff Walters, who retired the first two batters of the tenth. Then the next five batters went: double, single (run scores), single, single (run scores), single (game winning run scores).

Noah Syndergaard, who has been on a short leash for the last month working just 18 innings in August, allowed two runs in the first and little else: 6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 8 K. According to Baseball Prospectus’ Zach Mort, at times he was working 98-100 with “life”and throwing his hard curve at 78-79 mph with “bite.” There’s little question he’s the Mets’ top pitching prospect at this point.

The Ghost of Frank Francisco handled the seventh inning with a strikeout, while Chasen Bradford worked scoreless innings in the eighth and ninth with three strikeouts.

The middle of the diamond players were productive with the stick: 2B Danny Muno reached base five times at the top of the order, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and two walks, SS Wilfredo Tovar added two hits and CF Darrell Ceciliani three.

The good news for the B-Mets? This is a best-of-five series.
