AA Eastern League: Binghamton 2/8/0 vs Richmond 1/4/0

Jayce Boyd delivered the most dramatic hit in the last 20 years for Binghamton, a walkoff, bottom of the 9th single scoring pinch runner Gavin Cecchini, and giving the BMets their first title since 1994. Boyd’s walkoff with overshadow what was a tremendous, terrific, outstanding, career best start from Steven Matz, who took a no hitter into the 8th before allowing a pair of one out singles and departing. Hansel Robles came in and allowed one of those runs to score, so Matz took a very tough luck ND. Xorge Carrillo’s RBI single in the 4th stood up until that 8th inning. Boyd’s walkoff single won it.

AA Eastern League: Binghamton

Greg Peavey’s two regular season starts this year against Richmond were excellent, so it was no surprise when he turned in a gem in Game 2 of the ELCS tonight. Peavey, who struggled mightily against Portland last week, had no such issues tonight, firing 7 very strong innings, allowing just a run on 5 hits while striking out 9 for his first playoff win of 2014. Xorge Carrillo (2 run, 2nd inning) and Travis Taijeron (3 run, 8th inning) homered for the BMets, who are now one win away from their first title since 1994. Cody Satterwhite struck out 2 in a perfect 9th. After a day off tomorrow, the series resumes in Binghamton on Friday with Steven Matz, who clinched Savannah’s title last year, on the hill looking to clinch Binghamton’s this year.

A year after winning the SALLY league title with Savannah, Brandon Nimmo, Steven Matz and Gabriel Ynoa will try to help the BMets to their first title in 20 years. The series starts tonight in Richmond VA, before shifting to Binghamton this weekend for Games 3, 4* and 5*. As expected, the BMets rotation stays the same, so it’s Pill, Peavey, Matz. Lara and Ynoa if it gets there.

Game 1 is tonight at 630pm.

AA Eastern League: Binghamton 8/13/0 @ Portland 5/12/1, Binghamton wins the series 3-2

When it counted, when it was back-against-the-wall time, Brandon Nimmo exploded for 6 hits in his final 10 ABs, propelling the BMets offense, which had been largely dormant for the series, to 11 runs yesterday, and 8 today in the decisive game five. In each game Nimmo finished 3 for 5 with a double, today scoring twice after yesterday scoring thrice. Darrell Ceciliani drove in 3 for a second straight game, and Wilfredo Tovar kept it rolling from the bottom of the order with a 2 for 4 day out of the 9 hole. Staked to a 8-1 lead after 4, starter Gabriel Ynoa faltered but went 5.2 innings, allowing 5 runs for the win. Hansel Robles stranded a runner for Ynoa, and was again extremely effective out of the bullpen with 2.1 shutout innings, striking out 4. Cody Satterwhite, who faltered massively over the regular season’s final week, fired a scoreless 9th for his first postseason save in 2014.

So the BMets travel to Richmond, VA, for Games 1 and 2 of what is a Best of Five Championship Series. You would imagine the same rotation as the first round, so that means Tyler Pill, Greg Peavey, Steven Matz, Rainy Lara* and Gabriel Ynoa* (* if necessary). The series begins on September 9th in Richmond.

AA Eastern League: Binghamton 11/13/0 @ Portland 4/6/2

Brandon Nimmo exploded for 3 hits and 3 runs scored today as Binghamton staved off elimination and forced a Do or Die Winner Take All Game Five in Portland at 1pm. Gabriel Ynoa makes the start for the BMets, coming off his second best outing in AA, 7 shutout innings allowing just 3 hits while striking out 6. In two starts this season against Portland, Ynoa went a combined 12.2 innings and allowed 12 hits and 3 runs (2 earned) while walking one and striking out 12, including a 9 K performance at home on July 9th. Game One’s hero TJ Rivera also had 3 hits, as did Wilfredo Tovar, who’s critical Game Two error opened the floodgates for Portland.
