OFFENSE:

  • The Game's Only Run: It came in the 6th. Mason Janvrin reached on Aberdeen's second of three hits. It was a double, and he moved up to third on a flyout from Yusniel Díaz. A wild pitch from Nelvin Correa scored him
  • Staten Island would not get a runner into scoring position until the 6th. Handley caught Ezequiel Duran trying to swipe second after his single. Andres Chaparro doubled on the next pitch, that would have tied the game without Handley's putout.
