8/15/21 : Outstanding Pitching by McKay/Silva/Brown/Potter
The coverage was embedded in last night’s Minor League Roundup but felt like it also needed calling out, one of the best team pitching performances I’ve watched !
High A East League - Jersey Shore ( 40-48 ) @ Hudson Valley ( Yankees Affiliate ) ( 55-34) @ Dutchess Stadium - Wappingers Falls, NY
Final Score : Jersey Shore 2 Hudson Valley 0 - 12 innings
Incredible effort by Tyler McKay & Manuel Silva - no run no hitter thru nine innings !
Hudson Valley held to just one hit over 12 innings !!
Corbin Williams legged out a bunt single to lead off the 8th inning, he stole second base and went to third on a wild pitch. He tried to score on a wild pitch but was out as the ball bounced back off the back wall to the catcher flipped who then dived to tag the sliding Williams 😳.
The game went scoreless thru nine innings …
Jersey Shore didn’t score in the top of the 10th, Hudson Valley got their only hit of the game in the bottom of the inning, a leadoff single to left field. DJ Stewart made a great snag of a hard hit liner to first base for out one, third baseman McCarthy Tatum threw out a runner at the plate attempting to score on a ground ball to him for the second out. Blake Brown struck out the next hitter to send it to the 11th 😳.
The Blue Claws couldn’t score in the top of the 11th. Third baseman McCarthy Tatum once again threw out a runner from third attempting to score on a ground ball to him for the second out in the bottom of the inning ! Blake Brown struck out the last batter of the inning to send it to the 12th …😎
Pinch runner Hunter Markwardt entered the game in the 12th as the placed runner, he went to third on a sac bunt by Jonathan Guzman. Herbert Iser smoked a triple off the right field wall to score Markwardt with the game’s first run 💪. Jose Tortolero singled to score Iser.
Just proves ya can go extra extras even with placed runners 🤪
