Susan Wagner 1, Telecommunications 0

Kevin Walters pitched eight innings of shutout ball and struck out 14 and Wally Santos’ bases-loaded walk plated the winning run in the home eighth as the Falcons improved to 6-5 with the PSAL AAA Southern win on Wednesday at home.

“This was a big-time performance and we needed it,” said Susan Wagner coach Donato Pesce. “Besides our pitching, our defense played a clean game with no errors. In the first inning, Telecom had second and third and two outs and Nick Vilardi made a great diving (stop) at third base and threw the runner out at first.  After that play, Kevin was unhittable.”

Mychal Mondone had a big opposite-field triple in the eighth to eventually set up Santos’ RBI walk.

Andrew Partnow was 3 for 4.

The Falcons have rebounded from a 1-4 start.

“Hopefully, we can continue to play well and make a late-season push,” said Pesce.
