AAA: Heading into the bottom of the ninth, SWB was down 1-0 and facing a 2 games to none deficit in their best-of-five International League Championship Series. Worse yet, they had only gotten one hit. Many of their stars from this year were with the big club as the Yankees try to push for a playoff spot. Even Mason Williams wasn’t with SWB anymore, since he was brought up to the Yanks yesterday to replace the injured Aaron Judge.
Five batters later, SWB had a 2-1 win, without the benefit of a hit. They got just the one hit all game long.
A walk, walk, HBP, walk to tie the game and yet ANOTHER walk to win it. All without an out being recorded. Talk about winning a WILD one!
The win evens the series at a game apiece.
Phil Coke 7 1/3 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 0 walks and 9 K.Cito Culver got SWB’s only hit, a PH double in the 8th.
AA: Trenton lost 4-2 and finds their backs against the wall, down 2 games to none in the best-of-five Eastern League Championship Series. Billy McKinney 2 hits, double and triple. Sebastian Valle 3 for 3 with an RBI.
