Cannonballs Coming: Morgantown takes opener in extras

New, comments

Morgantown won the opener of its best of three championship series with Staten Island, 4-3, in 11 innings.  Daniel Arribas, the only starter who hadn't had a hit up to that point, drove in the winner with a one-out single, scoring Mitchell Tolman, who'd led off the inning with a single.  Up to that point, the only runs for the Black Bears had come on a 3rd inning, bases loaded triple by Carlos Munoz.  That gave them a 3-1 lead that held up until the 8th thanks to J.T. Brubaker (pictured).  He went seven, allowing just two hits and a walk, and striking out seven.  Tanner Anderson started the 8th, but gave up a walk and a double.  Tate Scioneaux, who's been dominant for Morgantown, relieved, but the tying run scored on a pair of groundouts.  Scioneaux threw three scoreless innings, giving up two hits and a walk, and striking out four.  Daniel Zamora pitched the top of the 11th to get the win.  Tolman, Munoz, Christian Kelley and Ty Moore each had two hits.
