STRUTHERS, OH-  The New York Nine sits atop of the NABF Senior mountain top after a 5-0 victory over Creekside Fitness in the World Series finale!

New York started the scoring in the top half of the opening inning.  Reynaldo Angeles, Albery Pichardo, and Jean Carlos Morillo all hit consecutive singles to load the bases.  Justin Peralta promptly unloaded them with a bases-clearing triple to take a quick 3-0 lead.  Peralta finished his trip around the bases by scoring on a wild pitch from Ryan Sullivan.  New York leads 4-0.

Pitching and defense took over until New York plated one more run in the top half of the seventh inning.  Griffin Arnone got on base with a single.  Colm O’Shea wasted no time in bringing him in with an RBI double.  The lead for New York grew to 5-0.

Tyler D’Amico finished off what he started, completing the shutout and the World Series-clinching effort!

D’Amico scattered five hits in his complete-game shutout, striking out nine and not walking a single batter.  Ryan Sullivan took the loss for Creekside, yielding four runs on six hits in 4 1/3 innings pitched, striking out two and walking only one.  Peralta had the big blow of the game with the three-run triple, and scoring his subsequent run on the wild pitch.  O’Shea slugged an RBI double for New York in the win.  Nick Guarnieri led Creekside with a pair of hits in the contest.
