Binghamton (WIVT) - The AA Binghamton Mets are back in the Eastern League playoffs for the second year in a row. Wednesday night, they start a best of five series at NYSEG Stadium against the Portland Sea Dogs, the AA affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.

The final series of the season against Richmond left more questions than answers in the B-Mets clubhouse.

The B-Mets enter into the Eastern Division Championship series against the Portland Sea Dogs on a six-game losing streak, their longest of the season.

They have had issues with consistency on offense and their bullpen has struggled greatly late in games, costing them several wins coming down the stretch.

Despite the recent losses, the B-Mets completed the regular season with their second-highest win total in franchise history and the team said they are optimistic about their postseason chances.

"I told the guys, I know we are not playing well but the good thing about this team is that we have gone through stretches like this before and for whatever reason they always seem to come back and bounce back and start playing well, so hopefully that's the case starting today," said manager Pedro Lopez.

"There are only four teams in this situation right now getting to play a little extra baseball, so just have fun with it and get out there and play the game," said Jayce Boyd.

Binghamton opens the best-of-five series Wednesday night at NYSEG Stadium at 6:35 p.m.
