B-Mets look to win second straight EL Title

Posted:
The Binghamton Mets are embarking on their third straight playoff run hoping to repeat the success of 2014 which brought home the team's first Eastern League Title in 20 years. While the excitement level of the clubhouse is at a season-high, the crowd in the stands at NYSEG Stadium will likely match or exceed that.

With all the drama and rumors this year surrounding the team's future in the Southern Tier, the fans are ready to focus on postseason baseball and, hopefully, another Eastern League Title. But as much as a second straight title would mean to the city, it means as much or more to the team.

"Winning is just fun and given this crowd and this town, and other reasons to keep coming to these games and maybe get a packed house like Game 3 last year and all those games like that would be fun. A second ring is a second ring, so it's fun," said Xorge Carrillo, B-Mets catcher and 2014 Eastern League Postseason MVP.

"All the credit goes to the players because they're the ones that go out there every day and leave everything on the line," said B-Mets Manager Pedro Lopez. "But you know what, to have my name and everyone else's name on the wall somewhere, talking about the B-Mets in 2014 and 2015, that'd be kind of neat."

Tyler Pill gets the call to start Game One for the B-Mets against the Reading Fightin' Phils at 6:35.
