Scrappers Win Opener in Thriller
Salesky Seals Win in Bottom of 6thUpdated Thursday April 28, 2016 by Jared Pennypacker.
The Scrappers won the season opener in a hard fought contest with the Blue Claws. The action started for the Scrappers in the bottom of the 1st. Landon Yerger cleared the bases in the bottom of the 1st with an inside the park homerun that was jacked to right center, scoring Cox and Pennypacker. Tyler Hartman batted in 2 runs in the 3rd to extend the lead for the Scrappers to 7-5 after 3 innings. Some shoddy defense allowed 4 runs to the Blue Claws in the top of the frame. The game was tied 8-8 in the bottom of the 6th when John Salesky doubled and stole 3rd on a passed ball. With the game on the line, Salesky then took off for home on a passed ball. The flip from the catcher was high and Salesky was under the tag for the game winning walk off run.
