BINGHAMTON (METS); TIED IN BEST-OF-FIVE SERIES, 2-2 (BOX) -- Second baseman Sean Coyle continued his recent resumption of mashing, going 1-for-2 with a double. He has a seven-game hitting streak that spans the end of the regular season and the start of the postseason during which he is 8-for-20 with three doubles and three homers while amassing a robust .320/.370/1.000 line. However, he left the game after being hit by a pitch on the wrist and did not return. He is not in the Portland lineup on Sunday. -- Rusney Castillo went 0-for-3 with a pair of flyouts (one to right, one to center) and a comebacker while playing six innings in center. He's now 4-for-14 with two walks and a strikeout in his five minor league contests. Thus far, he's remained true to -- Catcher Carson Blair went 1-for-4 with a homer to improve to 5-for-15 with a walk in the series. He now has 12 homers in 88 games this year -- one fewer than the 24-year-old had in parts of six seasons spanning 189 games entering the year. -- Right-hander Madison Younginer, promoted to Portland following High-A Salem's elimination on Friday, tossed three scoreless innings of relief in his first Double-A appearance. He allowed one hit and struck out a batter. The 23-year-old, who will pitch in the Arizona Fall League this winter, had a 4.08 ERA with 55 strikeouts and 25 walks in 57 1/3 innings for Salem this year.
