Bark at the Park at #CitiField this afternoon! #Mets
Friday night Binghamton (AA) capped a very successful minor league season by winning the Eastern League championship in walk-off fashion by beating Richmond, 2-1, to sweep the series three games to none. Our 2014 Sterling Organizational Pitcher of the Year LHP Steven Matz took a no-hitter into the eighth inning and notched 11 strikeouts. Las Vegas (AAA) and Savannah (A) also qualified for the playoffs this season and our nine minor league affiliates went a combined 497-406 this year. The .550 winning percentage was the third-best among the 30 major league teams. The entire organization is extremely excited about the direction and depth of our farm system, and we’ll all get a first-hand look at some of our most promising players when we honor the Sterling Award winners here before Monday night’s game. It’s been an Amazin’ minor league season.
