Newhan Wins Game One For Zephyrs

From Ed Ryan at Mets Fever (Network Member):

Bottom of the ninth, score tied in the AAA PCL first round playoff game. Dave Newhan walked with one out, then with two outs stole second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. With the pressure on the pitcher Newhan scores the winning run on a single by catcher Robinson Cancel.

The Zephyrs played game one of their playoff series tonight against Nashville. LHP Dave Williams was named the starter, Williams was penciled in as the Mets long man but after neck surgery very late in the off season Williams never recovered enough to contribute to the parent team this year. Williams pitched 6.1 innings in which he allowed one run on three hits and one walk, while striking out six. Williams was relieved by Joe Smith who completed the inning by stranding the inherited runners and geting two outs on ground balls. Another former pro Jon Adkins took over in the eighth and allowed a run to tie the score at 2-2. Two minor leaguers pitched the ninth and held the score tie; Cullen and Maldonado.

Fernando Tatis playing third went 2-3. 2B Newhan and CF Gomez had the RBIs. AHern who is the leadoff hitter and Gomez batting third both had walks and stolen bases.
