The Peglegs’ opened their PSAL season with a come from behind 4-3 victory over the West 50th Street Seahawks.
Starting pitching Iravan Bhattacharyya went four innings keeping the game close and striking out seven. Ethan Lin got the win with three innings of one-hit scoreless relief. The Seahawks threatened in the last frame, leading off the inning with two baserunners and no outs. But Stuyvesant was determined not to let the game slip away and a strikeout by Lin ended the contest.
Stuy’s offense put three on the board in the fourth, including a clutch bases loaded single by catcher Adam Lucey. The go ahead run in the fourth was sparked by a double by sophomore Axel Riess and was driven in by a base hit by senior co-captain Sam Levine.
The two teams face off again next week.
