B-Mets Drop Playoff Opener
The Reading Fightin Phils rocked B-Mets' pitching for 18 hits last night as they won the opening game of their best-of-five playoff series 9-4 at NYSEG Stadium. The Fightin Phils jumped on Binghamton starter Tyler Pill for four runs in the first inning. They added three more runs off Pill in the fifth inning on a home run from Brock Stassi to chase Pill.
Vince Belnome ripped a long home run for one of the few hitting highlights for Binghamton. Josh Rodriguez had an RBI single in the eighth inning for the B-Mets. He was assigned to Binghamton after a brief stay with Triple-A Las Vegas.
Game two in the series is set for 6:35 (air at 6:20 on News Radio 1290 WNBF tonight). Robert Gsellman will make the start for Binghamton. Jake Thompson gets the nod for the Fightin Phils.
