Yankees get their revenge
The Nevada Yankees got their revenge Monday night when they scored three runs in the seventh and eighth innings to pull out a 7-5 victory at home against the Tahoe Emeralds.
Justin Martin’s RBI bunt single with two outs in the bottom of the eighth broke a 5-5 tie and Jon Storke followed with a run-scoring double as the Gardnerville-based amateur baseball club rallied for a win that improved its summer record to 10-3.
The Yankees returned to action with a three-game series against the Las Vegas Blue Sock that concludes tonight with a 7 p.m. single game at Lampe Park. The two teams played a doubleheader last night, but scores were unavailable at press time.
Two weeks ago the Yankees were stung for an 11-5 extra inning defeat at Lampe Park when the Emeralds rallied to score eight unanswered runs in their last two at-bats. Monday, the Yankees overcame a 5-3 deficit in the late innings.
Brandon Mattingly’s two-run double tied the score 5-5 in the seventh.
Scott Ovard walked to lead off the Yankees’ eighth inning, then scored with two outs on Martin’s drag bunt. Storke’s double drove in Martin with an insurance run.
Brian Schultz pitched the distance to earn the win. Schultz allowed nine hits, struck out nine and walked nine. He worked out of a bases loaded jam in the seventh inning on a ground ball double play and got a strikeout to end the eighth with two runners aboard.
