For the Record
Men’s Senior League
Pro-Bats Yankees 7, Kosciuszko Club Phillies 1
The Yankees (2-0) again relied on pitching and defense to upend the (1-2) Phillies, at Dunkirk High School Field. The Yankees garnered only four hits, but relied on 11 walks from Phillies pitching that resulted in five runs scored from the bottom third of the Yankee order. Weston Ley scored three times for the Yankees. Starting pitcher Justyn Vara was stellar again in 4 2/3 innings of work, allowing just one run on six hits, while striking out nine Phillies batters to earn the win. Allan Carmello pitched shutout ball to close out the game for the Yanks. Brent Carmello and Joe Polichetti were stellar on the left side of the Yankee infield, involved in 12 of 21 outs made by Phillies batters.
For the Dog House, Tom Coughlin drove in Bryan Watts for their only run of the game. Watts, Joey Gierlak and Elon DeJesus shared mound duty, striking out eight Yankees.
