At Pier 40, our JV tonight showed its depth & spirit — as 3/4 starters were unable to play/ being stuck in an AP history exam to 6:30 (!). Graphics Campus held this one close, score was 1-0, 1-1, 2-1 across the first 2 innings.. as not much was going our way in the field or base-paths (no need to mention that, here, they know). But our starter, Ben Zenker, battled early, overcame our 6 errors and found an answer within each inning (94 pitches) to keep them down, eventually dominating over 5 innings (12 K’s, 2 H, 2 BB). On offense, Ben batted 2nd and had 3Rs, 2H (double) and 2 RBI. Ben combined with SS Luca Bielski (triple, 2R) and C Jordan Gray (2H, triple, 2 RBI) for a monster game for today’s 1-2-3 batters. We also had 9 walks (RF Zaid Malik had 2 and scored 2 runs).. and ran all over their catcher/pitchers (notable was Steven Zakin stealing 2nd, 3rd and then causing the game’s only balk). With 5 runs in the bottom of the 5th, we eventually mercy’d them by a 11-1 score.. on Jordan’s “walk-off RBI triple.
