The Trenton Thunder swept the Binghamton Mets, beating them 3-0 Friday night. Starter Shane Greene and four relievers combined to shut the B-Mets out, and rehabbing Yankees outfielder Zoilo Almote‘s fifth inning RBI single proved to be the game-winning hit.

Despite finishing the year 31 games above .500 with the best record in the Eastern League, the Binghamton Mets are done. Trenton, who at 74-67 had the worst record of any team in the playoffs, advances to the Eastern League Championship series to face either the Harrisburg Senators or Erie Seawolves.

That’s baseball.

In the Can-Am League Championship Series, Quebec beat the New Jersey Jackals 6-4 on Friday and has a 2 games to 1 lead in the best-of-seven series.
