Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) For the first time in nearly a decade, the Binghamton Mets are headed to the postseason. And they're taking on a team they've faced plenty of times this season.

The B-Mets are headed to Trenton for the first two games of their best of five series.

Binghamton won the season series 10-7.

But this is the playoffs and none of that matters.

Players and coaches say they're excited to be back in the playoffs and are ready to bring home a championship.

"Playoff baseball is fun. Trust me, I've been there quite a few times in my career and been able to win two rings and just the atmosphere and you're actually playing for something. Trying to strive to get that ring at the end of the year and you're one of the top teams left is pretty exciting," says third baseman Josh Rodriguez.

"This is what we've been working on all season, for 142 games. I'll tell you what, I feel confident these guys are going to go out there and have fun. The main thing is for us to go out there and not try to do too much, just make sure we let the game come to us and play fundamentally sound," says manager Pedro Lopez.

The B-Mets rotation is also set for the playoffs...Noah Syndergaard will take the ball for Game 1 in Trenton on Wednesday with Darin Gorski starting game two.

Logan Verrett will start game 3, back at NYSEG Stadium.
