Binder No Hits Defending Champion

Binder fires a pitch in the 1st Inning
Bret Binder made history on Sunday by pitching the franchise's first post-season no-hitter.  As the 7th seed, the Red Sox faced off against the #2 seed and defending champion A's in a single-elimination contest.  The game's lone run was scored by Steve McDermet on a groundball to the second basemen.  Steve was on second, and broke on contact.  As the second baseman threw to first, Steve rounded third and didn't stop.  The throw by the first baseman wasn't in time, and Steve's agressive baserunning paid off.  Bret kept the A's off-balance all day and there were very few hard hit balls.  Congrats to Bret!

For the next round, the Red Sox face off against the #3 seed Muckdogs in a best of three series.  The first game was played immediately following the A's game, but the Sox couldn't keep the good momentum going as they fell 9-4.  Muckdogs' ace Nick Long got revenge for his post-season no-hitter loss against the Red Sox last year.

The Sox are down 1-0, and need to win this Sunday to keep the season going.  The game is at Plymouth Meeting and first pitch is at 10am.  See you there!
