Senior League baseball playoffs

Pro-Bats Yankees 5, Stericycle Athletics 1

Despite being out-hit for the second consecutive playoff game, the Yankees (12-5) used solid pitching and defense to eliminate the A’s in the semifinal round of the CMSBL playoffs. Matt Eaker was masterful on the bump for the Yanks; a complete 9-inning game, yielding no earned runs, six hits, while walking only one and striking out seven A’s batters. The Bombers took advantage of walks and untimely errors from the A’s to plate four of their five runs. Joe Pantano (run, 2 RBI) connected for a bases loaded double in the fourth inning. Brandon Shelters (double) led the swinging A’s attack with two hits, while Curt Jones doubled and Steve Keyser scored the lone run. Austin Spicer went six innings for the A’s and was charged with the loss, despite allowing only two earned runs. Byron Keyser shut the Yanks down in relief the last three frames. The pair walked six Yankee batters, while striking out two.

The Yankees move onto the playoff finals, serving as the visiting team to the regular season champ Gowanda Phoenix Lodge Cubs (14-2), who edged out the Whiskey Hill Saloon Marlins 8-7, in the other semifinal affair. Game time is set for 11 a.m. at the Dunkirk Lucas Ave field, on Sunday.
