In what has been a good season for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, it should come as no surprise the team would have three starters in the Eastern League All-Star Game.
Of the three, Oswalt would have the biggest impact on the outcome of the game with his pitching a perfect top of the first with a strikeout.
Nido would catch the first four innings, but he would get only one at-bat in the game striking out. Earlier in the week, Nido appeared for Team World in the Future’s Game going 2-2 with two RBI.
Guillorme played the longest of the trio playing five innings and going 0-3 at the plate. As there was just one ball truly hit in the vicinity of Guillorme, a first inning groundout, there was no real chance for him to flash the leather.
In addition to Guillorme, Nido, and Oswalt, the Rumble Ponies had two other All-Stars, but they did not appear in the game.
Accordingly, the Rumble Ponies would not factor much into the East’s 7-1 victory over the West. Yankee prospect Zack Zehner was the MVP of the game going 2-2 with two RBI.
The Rumble Ponies season will recommence later today with the team playing at the Reading Fightin Phils.
