B-Mets look for "team win" in game 2

Posted:
Wednesday night's Game 1 didn't go quite according to plan for the Binghamton Mets. The bats eventually got going, but could only muster four runs offensively while letting in nine and dropping the first game of the best-of-five series. While being down 1-0 is by no means time to panic, a win in Game 2 becomes that much more necessary.

Prior to Game 1, B-Mets Manager Pedro Lopez talked to the media about the mentality in the playoffs being all about the team win and not about individual stats.

"Hitting averages and ERAs don't count anymore. Now it's not going to be my at bat, it's going to be the team's at bat," said Lopez. "From here on out it's a collective win and it doesn't matter, there's no egos there's nothing involved. It's about the B-Mets winning a championship and winning a game. Batting averages don't count, stolen bases don't count. It's going to be a stolen base for the team, it's going to be the sacrifice bunt for the team, it's going to be the sac fly for the team. It's not going to be whether I went 0-4 or 2-4, it's about what the B-Mets can do."
