Game 1 wrap up (with video)

Quick. Think of every adjective one would use to describe a pitcher who's just had a great night. Nasty? Filthy? Dirty? Well keep on digging, because you're going to need a whole new lexicon to begin describe just how good Dellin Betances was in Game 1 of the Eastern League Division Series tonight.

Betances gave up two hits and a walk over 5 1/3 innings while striking out eight and looking downright overpowering against what was far and away the most potent lineup in the circuit all year long.

He outdueled Eastern League Pitcher of the Year Kyle Drabek, who was pretty damn good in his own right. He hit 97 on the gun several times, and held the Thunder to one run over six innings, which just wasn't good enough on this night.

With that, here are some videos from tonight: A Betances strikeout, Dan Brewer's game-winning hit, and postgame comments from Betances and Justin Snyder, who made several key plays in the field.
