The Staten Island Yankees captured their second New York-Penn League championship in three years, defeating the Auburn Doubleday’s 2-1 on Tuesday. The Baby Bombers are living up to the legacy that the boys in the Bronx have built; as the Single-A Affiliate has won six titles in 13 years.
Starter Matt Tracy tossed six shutout frames, and Zach Wilson smashed a solo shot-to lead the Yankees to a sweep of the best-of-three Championship season. Tracy, a 22-year-old lefty allowed three hits, sat down four batters and threw 54-of-83 pitches for strikes. Tracy also did not allow a player to reach third base, while also retiring 14 of his final 15 batters.
As for the offensive hero Wilson, he took the first pitch he saw from Doubleday starter Nathan Karns to left field to give the Baby Bombers a lead in the second inning. The offensive hero finished the regular season with 10 homers, along with the heroic bomb that led the Yankees to the title.
We here at 1495 Sports wish to send out our sincerest congratulations to the team out on Staten Island!
