AA: Richmond lost to Binghamton 2-1
(being swept in the best-of-five championship series)

Richmond: 2B Blake Miller: 1 for 2, 2 BB
Richmond: PH-C Eliezer Zambrano: 1 for 1

Richmond: SP Ty Blach: 7.0 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K
Richmond: RP Steven Okert: 0.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 K
Binghamton: SP Steven Matz: 7.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 11 K

Miller had hit just 1 for 19 in the playoffs entering tonight, but today he was the lone Flying Squirrel to reach base twice.  He had one of the Squirrels' four hit and both of their walks.  Zambrano had a pinch-hit single in the 8th inning.

Blach finished the season strong, allowing just 4 ER over his last five starts.  He was matched by Matz, whom the Mets drafted in the second round five years ago but who did not make his pro debut until two years ago.  So far Matz has a 2.32 ERA in 51 pro starts (regular season only).  Okert enjoyed a fine season with just a 2.11 ER in 68.1 IP, but tonight he retired just one of four batters in the bottom of the 9th inning.
