Binghamton Mets AA Report

Binghamton's three game winning streak was snapped yesterday with a loss to the Altoona Curve. The loss put the Mets a single game below .500, and they trail the first place Portland Sea Dogs by 3 1/2 games in a tight Northern Division race that where first and last are seperate by only 6 1/2 games. The Mets will have a chance to shave that lead as they're playing Portland as I write this. They have a four game series there.

Shortstop Chase Lambin has been a tear all season. Yesterday he went one for four, but he's hitting .339/.392/.661. He leads the team in homers with eight, and more then half of his hits have been for extra bases. Third basemen David Bacani has also been very effective for the Mets. He leads the team in OBP (.429) and has a nice 17/14 strikout to walk ratio. He's even thrown an inning of relief for the squad.

On the pitching side, Floyd Bannister's son, Brian, has been lights out. He's 6-1 with 51 innings under his belt. He has a miniscule 1.94 ERA and 43 strikeouts. I see a promotion coming soon for the 24 year old. Yusmeiro Petit has also thrown well. He has 40 strikeouts in 37 1/3 innings with a 3.13 ERA. He only has 5 walks, so he's had pretty good command to date.
