The Long Island Whalers went undefeated in this years Baseball Heaven Spring Challenge beating a very tough North Jersey Thunder team in the finals by a score of 2-1.
Whalers pitcher Neftali Parache teamed up with catcher Quintin Vizza going the distance and raking up six strikeouts, while allowing no earned runs, five hits and no walks over six innings.
The duo also provided the scoring with both going 1 for 2 and scoring.
The win was helped by some good defense with a DP by Dylan Perry in the outfield, a heads up play by Joe Flannigan in the last inning and capped off by catcher Quintin Vizza throwing out the tying run in the 6th on an attempted steal. All around team effort. We expect to hear more stories like this going forward.
