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.

Defensive highlight reel Luis Guillorme was the starting second baseman and lead-off hitter for the Eastern All Stars. He was joined by battery mates Corey Oswalt and Tomas Nido.

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.

Outfielder Kevin Taylor did not play due to injury. Starter P.J. Conlon opted for rest over appearing 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.
