SI Yanks Walk-off With A Win In Game One

For the first time in Staten Island Yankees the Baby Bombers played a double-header on Opening Day.  But that wasn’t the only first.  In game one of the double header the Baby Bombers and Brooklyn Cyclones went in extra innings.  Originally scheduled to be a seven-inning game the Yankees and Cyclones were all tied up at one run a piece.
The Yankees started off the scoring in the bottom of the first inning.   Thairo Estrada reached on a fielding error by the third baseman and then stole second.  He moved to third on a ground out by Austin Aune then scored on a sacrifice fly by Chris Breen.
Sam Agnew-Wieland got the start for Staten Island, he allowed a run on three hits and three walks while struck out five batters.  The lone run came in the top of the third inning when he was relieved by Chad Taylor.  Taylor came in with runners at first and second and then walked the first two batters he faced to force in a run.  He went on to throw two and two-third innings, walking four and allowing a hit.
Jose Pena was next on the mound for the Baby Bombers and earned the win.  Pena pitched three and two-third innings allowing just a hit and a walk while striking out seven of the thirteen batters he faced.
Staten Island won the game in walk-off fashion in the bottom of the ninth inning.  Collin Slaybaugh worked a leadoff walk before moving to second on a sac bunt by Isaias Tejeda.  Thairo Estrada then worked a walk.  Austin Aune flew out to center before Chris Breen walked.  With the bases loaded Ty McFarland show patience at the plate and worked a walk-off walk to win the game.
In between games the Yankees invited fans to run the bases and have a father’s day catch on the field.
