On Thursday night, Triple-A Las Vegas and Double-A Binghamton both played their second playoff game in their respective best-of-five-series. They both lost.
The 51s lost in a walkoff loss, again. Robert Carson took the loss, again, allowing one hit, walking two intentionally, before giving up the game-winning sacrifice fly to the Salt Lake Bees to take the 5-4 win. The 51s are now down 0-2 as the series returns to Las Vegas on Friday night, with their backs against the wall.
In Double-A, the B-Mets managed only two hits, as the Trenton Thunder topped them 2-1. Darin Gorski turned in a seven inning, two earned run effort, but took the loss, as the B-Mets only run came on a 3B Josh Rodriguez solo home run in the seventh inning. The series shifts to Binghamton for Friday night’s game, with the BMets trying to stave off a series sweep.
