The Binghamton Rumble Ponies wrapped up their road trip with a 3-2 win over the Akron RubberDucks. It was their fourth win in the last five games and now they have a 2-1/2 game lead for the final playoff position in the Eastern Division.

They return home tonight for seven in a row at NYSEG Stadium including four against New Hampshire. Tonight is Thirsty Thursday courtesy of 98.1 the Hawk on Italian Heritage Night.

Enjoy two for the price of one on select draft beer, fountain cokes, and wine on the party deck. Everyone that attends will be entered to win gift cards from our Italian restaurant friends. First pitch is at 5:35.

Saturday is "Let's Go Mets" Night with the return of Mr. Met. It's a tribute to their 26th season as a Double-A Affiliate of the New York Mets. They will be giving away Mets style Rumble Ponies hats. First pitch is at 7:05.

Sunday is the day that my daughter Tara has been waiting for since the season began. It's "Happy Birthday Harry Potter" Day. Tara has her Harry Potter outfit for the game, do you?

Get there early for a pre-game celebration and stick around after the game as all kids 12 & under can run the bases. First pitch is at 1:05.

Get ready to rumble all this weekend and then get ready for the Double-A Yankee affiliate, Trenton Thunder to come to town beginning on Tuesday.
