A decisive game three is the only action on the Mets organization today. Chase Hutchingson gets the call, following a July in which Hutchingson had back to back starts where he failed to complete the first inning, then missed a turn in the rotation, and allowed batters to hit .356; his August has been much better. 2-0, 2.65 while allowing 43 base runners and striking out 25, .250 BAA.
2010 fifth round pick Robert Morey had a similar July swoon (0-3, 7.05) and bounce back August (2-0, 3.33) Darrell Ceciliani finished the regular season hot (14-for-34 .412/.487/.471) and is 3-for-7 with a walk in the two postseason games.
SSA: Brooklyn Cyclones (45-31) Listen
Brooklyn will play the Hudson Valley Renegades [TB] (52-24) in the first round of the NYPL playoffs, beginning Friday in Brooklyn, and continuing on the road Saturday, and Sunday (if necessary). The Cyclones went 7-3 against the Renegades, outscoring them 42-30, and went 4-1 in Fishkill where they will need to steal at least one game to advance. Hudson Valley pitching finished 3rd in the NYPL in whip and ERA, and second in team shutouts (9); three stats which the Cyclones lead the league. Hudson Valley has gone 17-5 since the NYPL all star break, while Brooklyn scuffled to an 11-11 finish and backed into a playoff spot thanks to the final week struggles of Batavia.
