FACT I Rochester By PAUL STUART Staff Writer ROCHESTER After winning a league-record 57 regular-season games, the Binghamton Rangers are having trouble figuring out how to do it in the playoffs. The Rangers' inexplicable struggle with mental toughness continued Friday in a 5-1 American Hockey League loss to Rochester in game three of the Southern Division playoff final. The Americans took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game four is 7 p.m. Sunday in Rochester's War Memorial Auditorium. Amerks goalie Olaf Kolzig finished with 32 saves, but faced few difficult chances until the third period. "I'm not giving Rochester any credit," BINGHAMTON RANGERS By PAUL STUART Staff Writer ROCHESTER Binghamton Rangers coach Colin Campbell feels like a man who owns a Ferrari with a bad ignition. The horsepower's there, when it works. Campbell watched the Rangers go through another night of bad penalties, lack of focus, mistakes and sometimes-lackluster effort in a 5-1 loss to Rochester on Friday in game three of the AHL Southern Division finals. The on-again, off-again play is taking its toll. "There's lots of things I can do," Camp- EASTERN LEAGUE p - - i -- ; ! - - , " - - :; ;: - Vi: ' ' i ? ' - ' iS r,C s 'vT jf -x (' " f ' I ' "-w.

' Lack of i Error in 14th sinks Mets Yanks win 4-3 in Binghamton's longest game ALBANY Rich Barnwell scored from second on Butch Huskey's throwing error in the 14th inning as the Albany-Colonie Yankees defeated the Binghamton Mets 4-3 Friday night. Barnwell singled to lead off the 14th, and Bryan Rogers (1-2) followed by walking Bubba Carpenter. Mike Hankins then bunted down the third-base line. Huskey bare-handed the ball, but his throw intended for first baseman Frank Jacobs was wild, and allowed the winning run home. The Mets used four pitchers starter Randy Marshall, who was lifted after five innings for Chris Dorn; Andy Reich, who replaced Dorn in the ninth; and Rogers, who entered in the 13th. The Mets were without shortstop Aaron Ledesma, who has not played since leaving Tuesday's game at New Britain with a sore shoulder. He is expected to return today. The Yankees took the lead in the first. With two out, Robert Eenhorn doubled to right. Then slaps a 5-1 Binghamton coach Colin Campbell said. "We just sat right out there for them. The game started off slow and sluggish and we weren't ready. I don't know who we think we are, we must read our clippings or something." Asked if he would consider making drastic changes in the lineup, Campbell said, "Sure I would. Anyone that saw the game out there (Friday), they wouldn't seem so drastic. "It's my fault, I never learn. I've got to keep the hammer on them. You can't relax and go out and think you're going to win on talent. You're not going to win on talent in the playoffs. It doesn't work that way. We don't know how to win yet here (in the playoffs)." .fit Jwp,,,wk:K ntensity gnaws at Campbel Blues turn back Leafs, Page 2C. bell said. "We've already started. We've got to find out who wants to play and who doesn't want to play. "You've got to keep on 'em, and on 'em and on 'em. We've got to figure out who'll pay the price." The list of guilty parties was lengthy. "It would be better to start with who did work hard. It's a much shorter list," Campbell said. Left wing Rick Bennett said several play run in the third. Jose Pineda doubled to lead off, advanced to third on a fielder's choice and scored on a wild pitch by Marshall for a 2-0 Yankees lead. The Mets took the lead in the fourth by scoring three unearned runs. With two out, Huskey reached on an error. Alan Zinter singled, and Frank Jacobs walked to load the bases. Tim Sandy's bases-clearing double put Binghamton on top 3-2. The Yankees tied the score in the fourth. With two out, Barnwell doubled to right, then scored on an RBI single by Carpenter. The Mets had chances in the 11th and 13th innings. With the bases loaded and no one out in the 1 1th, Jacobs grounded to first, and Jay Davis was forced at home for a double play. Chris Butterfield struck out to end the inning. In the 13th, the Mets again loaded the bases, this time with one out. But Alan Zinter hit into a double play off Brian Faw (1-1) to end the threat. Mets watch Overtime: The Binghamton Mets (8-15) put in extra work Friday night before losing 4-3 in 14 innings to the Albany-Colonie Yankees. Game two of the three-game series is at 2 this afternoon with the Mets' Denny Harriger (1-2) facing the Yankees' Domingo Jean (0-0). Waiting game: The game took 3 hours, 59 minutes- the longest game of the year in time and innings for the Mets. Still going: Ricky Otero singled in the 13th inning to extend his hitting streak to 16. Lyle Mouton doubled to left to score Eenhorn. The Yankees added another hurtin' on Binghamton trailed 1-0 midway into the second period, but the Amerks outhustled the Rangers for the final six minutes, with goals by Mike McLaughlin and Scott Thomas turning it into a three-goal lead. With the teams playing four-on-four, Rochester broke out on a two-on-one with Chris Snell and Todd Simon split by Binghamton defenseman Sergei Zubov. Snell's shot hit the post to the left of goalie Corey Hirsch and McLaughlin hit the crossbar on the rebound. The red light went on before he tucked it in officially for a 2-0 lead at 14:11. Thomas fired in a gift giveaway at 18:28, following Zubov's lazy attempt to clear the puck, to make it 3-0. Looking to shake some life into his strug flWPPWJW ers stood up and said something in a brief players' meeting after the game. One statement hit home hard. "Dave Marcinyshyn said it after the game, we don't understand what we're losing here," Bennett said. "Being the best team overall over the whole year is fine, but it doesn't mean anything now. We want to be the best team in the playoffs. The Cup means a lot. That's what we want." Said defenseman Mike Hurlbut: "We're not coming out hard. We're not doing the things we're supposed to do. No one seems in synch right now. It's frustrating, but we can't push the panic button.
