(1) CANANDAIGUA 1
(8) BRIGHTON 0
Canandaigua pitcher Michael Sculli did it all from the mound and from the plate as his top-seeded Braves topped Brighton 1-0 in a good old fashioned pitcher’s duel in the Class A1 Quarterfinals.
Sculli pitched a complete game and allowed only 2 hits, while striking out 2 and issuing 3 walks. But it was his sacrifice fly ball to center field that scored Jordie Johnstone in the bottom of the sixth that proved to be the deciding – and only – run of the ballgame and send the upset-minded eighth-seeded Barons home.
Brighton’s Treent Wasserman was brilliant on the mound, cruising through five innings allowing just one hit and 2 walks. But in the sixth, Johnstone singled to open the inning, was advanced to second on sacrifice bunt by Dylan Mackenzie, and after a walk and a hit batsman, Sculli launched his deep fly ball to plate the only run. Wasserman took the loss despite a 2-hit, 6-strikeout, 3-walk performance.
Canandaigua advances to play Greece Athena on Thursday in the semifinals.
