Thankfully for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, the month of July is almost over.
After starting out strong in the first week of July, going 5-3 that week, Binghamton would go on to finish the month with an 11-17 record.
Over their last 10 games, the Ponies hold just a 3-7 record.
They’ll look to turn those numbers around on Tuesday as they wrap up the month with a doubleheader against the Hartford Yard Goats.
Also, with just 34 games remaining until the end of the season, which is crazy to think about, the Ponies have a lot of work to do if they want to make a second-consecutive appearance in the Eastern League playoffs.
As of Monday night, the Rumble Ponies sit tied for fourth in the six-team Eastern Division, matching the Reading Fightin Phils with a 49-57 record.
The Yard Goats are a game up on Binghamton, sitting alone in third.
However, only the top two teams in both the Eastern and Western Divisions make it to the postseason, and all those teams mentioned are far out of contention at this point.
Binghamton is 12 games back of first place New Hampshire, with those Fisher Cats being two games ahead of the Trenton Thunder, who are alone in second place.
Of their remaining 34 games, the Ponies are done playing Trenton, and only play New Hampshire three more times, which will make it difficult to make up ground.
One thing’s for sure, Binghamton needs a lot of help if they want to play ball deep into September.
Again, their attempt at resurgence begins Tuesday against Hartford.
