The Binghamton Rumble Ponies wrapped up a series split on the road in Reading yesterday as they took 3 of 6 games from the Fightin Phils. It was an especially productive series for a pair of Ponies that earned MiLB Weekly honors.

Third baseman Mark Vientos earned the MiLB Player of the Week, while starting pitcher Josh Walker earned pitcher of the week for the Northeast League. 

Vientos was scorching hot at the dish last week. He posted a .400 average in the 6 game set tallying 5 home runs and 10 runs batted in. The New York Mets 8th ranked prospect has a team leading 11 homers. 

Josh Walker pitched two thirds of Binghamton’s combined no-hitter Tuesday. In that game he pitched 6 hit-less and scoreless innings, striking out 4 batters and walking just one. Since being called up to Double-A on May 24th, Walker has posted a 3-1 record with a 3.34 ERA in 5 starts. He also has the longest start for the Ponies this year going 7 innings, striking out 9 batters and allowing just one walk in a June 9th win over Bowie.
