take on the Bronx Broncos in the 2013 CUNY championship game. (rock music) Queensborough, the
regular series champions. They went nine and three. Bronx Broncos finished in
second place at seven and five. They split four regular season meetings. (rock music) The Tigers are around third
base right now getting ready. Then they’ll face the
Bronx Broncos whose lineup, leadoff hitter Claudio Deaza, number 20. The second basemen, number 13, Mark Ycaza. The shortshop hitting third
is number 29, Ritchie Bethea. Hitting cleanup is
number 15, Daniel Rojas. Hitting fifth is number
19, Rowin Rodriguez. Sixth is number 31, Edwin Ramierez. Seventh is number 12, Jonathan Suarez. In the eighth spot is
number 18, Jose Ramirez. Hitting ninth is Crioni
Brazoban, number 16. And the Tigers’ defense is on the field. From left to right, it’s Timothy Jacquez, Lebro Burnette, and Alex Pangourelias. In the infield from third to short, Jeinson Espinosa is at the hot corner, Thomas Grillo at short,
Calvin Luk at second, Richard Tejada at first. Nicholas Yip is behind the plate. And on the mound is
number 34, Mark Salazar. And he’ll go out there after the coaches speak to the umpires around home plate. (rock music) Salazar this season made some huge starts against CUNY rivals. BMCC, he beat two, nothing two weeks ago, a complete game shut out. And then seven days ago,
he was in a great duel at Kingsborough and won two to one. – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, at this time would you please give a warm round of applause to Miss Donna Genova. She is the former
athletic director of Bronx Community College, and now
she’s the region 15 director of women’s sports. She’ll be throwing out
tonight’s first pitch. Please give Miss Donna Genova
a great big round of applause. (crowd applauding) – [David] Before that, we’ll have the ceremonial first pitch. – [PA Announcer] We’d also like to give a great big welcome and shout
out to the Queensborough Community College women’s softball team in attendance tonight. As well as the boosters from
Bronx Community College. (rock music) We’d also like to take a moment to welcome former New York Cardinal great Mr. John Fernandez is in the audience. As well as future hall of famer– – [David] And now Salazar is on the mound. Getting back to last week. He was in a duel with Michael Cassavella, The Wave pitcher, and
Salazar gave up a run in the bottom of the first, and he held Kingsborough scoreless the rest of the way as Queensborough came
back to win two to one. And clutch pitching also. Bottom of the eighth inning, Kingsborough had second and third with one out. He struck out the cleanup
hitter, Christopher Armenti, and then a left handed pinch
hitter Samuel Marquez looking. And then he got Kingsborough
one, two, three in the ninth to close out the win. Salazar an ERA under one. Basically, half a run
given up in the CUNY games. (rock music) And the head coach for
Queensborough is Roger Mischel. And I guess he could
give Salazar a good talk about what it must feel like. Mischel started two of these games against the Bronx back in 2002 and 2003. And each time, he pitched
against Cesar Alvarez, and they actually split to two meetings. 2002, Bronx won three-one. 2003, Queensborough won three to one. Caesar Alvarez, if you don’t
know, is an outstanding pitcher for the Broncos. Actually threw a perfect
game against the Tigers once, and a two hitter in another game. And actually when he beat QCC three-one in that ’02 title game,
it was a complete game three hitter with seven strikeouts. And Mischel was actually the only run to score for the Tigers. – [PA Announcer] Leading
off for the Broncos, the second baseman,
number 20, Claudio Deaza. – [David] So now a meeting at the mound. His teammates wish Salazar good luck. Claudio Deaza, the leadoff hitter. (rock music) Deaza hit .370 this season,
an on base percentage of .445. And you can raise that to
a .519 on base percentage in the 12 CUNY games. Very much what you’d
like from a leadoff guy, good on base percentage. Also stole a dozen bases this year. And Salazar’s first pitch
of the game is in there for strike one. (crowd applauding) O and one to Deaza. Outfield is straight
away, so is the infield. And, that’s a bit outside. Evens up the count to one and one. Salazar looks in for the signs from Nicholas Yip, and the one-one pitch is inside for ball two, two and one. The weird stat, the last several seasons in CUNY title games,
Queensborough has given up at least one run in the
top of the first inning. Salazar hoping to end that streak. The two-one is high, ball
three, three and one. Don’t wanna walk the leadoff hitter. And Salazar’s three-one pitch is a strike. It’s three and two. Deaza as already walking to first. Maybe trying to goad the umpire
into calling that a ball. The count is full now on Deaza. Salazar’s payoff pitch is popped up. Espinosa going over towards the dugout. And that’s out of his reach
and into the bleachers on a hop. (organ music) It’s Jeinson Espinosa, the sophomore at the hot corner. – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, during the course of the game, baseballs may be hit or thrown into the stands. Please be alert at all times, thank you. – [David] You may remember that Espinosa was the shortstop in last
year’s CUNY title game. Now Thomas Grillo is at short. Espinosa moved over to the hot corner. Three and two on Claudio Deaza. And the pitch is high for ball four. A leadoff walk issued by Salazar. (crowd member yelling) – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the shortstop, number 13, Mark Ycaza. – [David] Number 13, Mark Ycaza is up. Ycaza hit .433 on the year, an on base percentage of .465. Ycaza stole 14 bases this
year, another speedster. Broncos with a lot of speed
at the top of the lineup. Runner goes, and the pitch is fouled off. Adolfo Dejesus put on the hit and run. A very aggressive team,
a lot of good hitters but not power hitters. (organ music) Adolfo Dejesus has been the Bronx coach since the mid ’80s. He’s in his 28th year as coach. It’s actually three seasons
before the CUNY title game even existed. Here’s the O-one pitch. That’s inside for ball one, one and one. Now Ycaza looks at the signs. Deaza on first after the leadoff walk. And Salazar steps off. Maybe a little bit of
nerves for Salazar early on. And the throw to first,
Deaza gets back in time. (audience muttering) Broncos looking for a first
inning run for Omar Gomez, the Bronx starting pitcher. Salazar’s one-one, runner goes. Pitch is a ball, and the throw is in time, and then it’s dropped. Dropped and a stolen base for Deaza. (audience member yelling) A very good throw my Nicholas Yip. Deaza knocked the ball
out on the slide though and a stolen base. And now a man on second, nobody out, and a two-one count for Ycaza. The two-one pitch is
outside, three and one. And Yip is gonna have a word with Salazar. (organ music) Remember it was Queensborough who ran a lot last year against BMCC. They stole seven bases in that game. (organ music) (crowd yelling) Salazar after walking
Deaza is behind three and one on Ycaza. Ritchie Bethea is on deck. The three-one pitch. Swing and a miss, strike two. Now Salazar is full on the second hitter. (drum music) Three and two, see what he does here. The pitch is fouled away. (glass shattering) Pretty close to some of the cars. So now for Salazar, you don’t want to throw a pitch that
Ycaza could get the bat on, but at the same time,
you can’t risk walking the first two hitters. So interesting pitch selection here. Deaza on second, nobody out. Outfield is straight
away, so is the infield. The payoff pitch is lined
to left into the gap, and it’s over his head. Deaza’s gonna score and
make it one-nothing. Ycaza has an RBI double. The Broncos have an
early one-nothing lead. Just out of the reach of Timothy Jacquez. (crowd cheering) (electronic rock music) And now Ritchie Bethea will come up. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the first basemen, number 29, Richard Bethea. (electronic rock music) – [David] Bethea hit .434 this season and had 34 RBI to lead the team. And now he’s got a man on
second with nobody out. That’s lined to center field. Burnette is there, makes the catch. Ycaza’s going for third,
and he’ll make it. (crowd applauding) Now man on third with one out. Productive out. Now another fly ball or
maybe even a ground ball could give Bronx another run. – [PA Announcer] Number 15,
the catcher, Daniel Rojas. – [David] And now it’s the
cleanup hitter Daniel Rojas who hit .457 this season, an
on base percentage of .526. And those numbers are even
better in the CUNY games. Hit .575, had a slugging
percentage of .825. Man on third, one out. Corner infielders are in, and that pitch is outside for a ball. (crowd muttering) So a ground ball to short or second would probably bring Ycaza home. If he hits it to Espinosa at third, we may see a play at the plate. The one-O pitch. Just misses for ball two. He’s falling behind
hitters which is funny. He fell behind Deaza and
Ycaza, and then Bethea swung at the first pitch
and hit it pretty well, but Burnette made the catch. Now two and O to Daniel
Rojas, the catcher. And the pitch is in there for strike one. This is a game usually
dominated by pitching. How ’bout James Scagnelli for the Tigers last year in relief, 6 2/3 innings of shut out ball, 10 strikeouts as Queesborough won nine-five
against the Panthers. Salazar’s two-one pitch, swing and a miss. It’s the best pitch
Salazar has thrown tonight. Now it’s two and two. Good slider and Rojas
was out in front of it. (crowd member yelling) Salazar, the two-two pitch is foul tipped. Good job by Rojas to stay alive though. That was a good pitch by Salazar. The middle infielders
are still playing back conceding the run in the first inning. Don’t want one to get past them and then have a really
big inning on their hands. Salazar looks in at the
sign, and the two-two pitch is popped up. (crowd cheering) And caught. Good job by Salazar as the
catch is made by Calvin Luk. Man on third, one out. Rojas could not drive him in. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the center fielder, number 19, Rowin Rodriguez. – [David] Now it’s up to
Rodriguez to pick up his teammate. Rodriguez hit .427 this
season with a home run and 21 runs batted in,
.564 average in CUNY games. (crowd members yelling) Salazar’s pitch is low, and it gets away. And here comes Ycaza, and he’s gonna score to make it two-nothing. And that’s gotta be tough for Salazar. He did such a good job
to get Rojas to pop up, leave the runner at third,
and then he bounces that one, and it’s two-nothing. (rock music) (crowd yelling) So one and O to Rowin Rodriguez. Bases are empty now. That misses for ball two, two and O. – [Crowd Member] Let’s go, kid. – [David] Salazar’s
already given up more runs than his final two CUNY starts combined where he shut out BMCC and gave up one run to the Kingsborough Wave. The two-O pitch is lined to center field. Burnette drifts over and makes the catch to end the inning. Bronx is retired but not before they score two runs on one hit. And after half an inning,
it’s the Broncos two, Queensborough coming up.
– The Broncos pick up two runs on one hit. (muttering) It’s the Broncos two, and
the Tigers coming to bat. – [Announcer] There’s a
fly ball into right field. This is gonna be a home run. (muttering) – [David] So the starting lineup for the Queensborough Tigers looking for their second CUNY
championship in a row. Number 16, Lebro Burnette leads off. Number two Jeinson Espinosa, hitting third is number nine, Thomas Grillo. In the cleanup spot is
number 18, Nicholas Yip. Hitting fifth is number 15, Hamo Deljanin. Sixth is 68, Calvin Luk. Seventh is number 22, Richard Tejada. Hitting eighth is the right fielder, number 55, Alex Pangourelias. Hitting ninth is number
seven, Timothy Jacquez. And the Bronx Broncos
are on the field now. The defense from left to
right in the outfield, Jonathan Suarez, Rowin
Rodriguez, Crioni Brazoban. The infield from third to short,
third to first, excuse me, Jose Ramirez at the hot
corner, Mark Ycaza in short, Claudio Deaza at second,
Ritchie Bethea at first. Daniel Rojas is behind the plate. And on the mound is Omar Gomez. Gomez went five and one this year with three complete games. His ERA was under five. His one loss was to these
Queensborough Tigers. He only gave up two earned
runs in five innings, but his Broncos were shutout in that game. Queensborough won eight-nothing. (electronic rock music) There was another game he
pitched against the Tigers. Well, excuse me, looking at Javier. Gomez’s best game this year was at BMCC after the Broncos had lost to BMCC, they wanted him to avenge the loss. He pitched five strong innings as they mercied The Panthers. And now Lebro Burnette will
try and get it started. Burnette hit cleanup
– Leading off for the Tigers the center fielder,
– in last year’s game. – [Announcer] number 16, Lebro Burnette. – [David] Burnette
actually had an RBI single in the fifth inning of last year’s game. These games have been high scoring between the teams all year long. First meeting, Queensborough
won eight-nothing. Second meeting, the Bronx won 14-six. Third meeting, Queensborough won 10-eight. And in the final meeting,
Bronx won eight-seven. So two-nothing does not mean a whole lot. (crowd member yelling) So Burnette is ready while
Gomez is still getting ready. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go Tigers, let’s go. – [David] And the first
pitch of the game from Gomez – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go Tigers, let’s go. – [David] is right down
the middle for strike one. Burnette made two catches in center field in the first inning. Also sees some time as a
pitcher every so often. That’s low for ball one, evens
up the count at one and one. (crowd muttering) Burnette hit .373 this
season, .441 in 12 CUNY games. The one-one pitch is lined to right. It’s a base hit. A leadoff single for Lebro Burnette. (crowd cheering) And now hitting is Jeinson Espinosa. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the third baseman, number two, Jeinson Espinosa. – [David] Espinosa broke a five-five tie in the fifth inning of last year’s game with a two run single up the middle with the bases loaded. (crowd clapping) Espinosa hit .325 this year,
.382 in the CUNY games. Also hit two home runs. off-speed pitch missed
for ball one, one and O. Espinosa looks for the
signs from Roger Mischel. (crowd cheering) The one-O pitch from Gomez. Burnette not going. That’s popped up, drifting foul. And the catch is made by Jose Ramirez, and Espinosa is retired for the first out. – [PA Announcer] The
shortstop, number nine, Thomas Grillo, number nine. – [David] Now hitting is Thomas Grillo, the shortstop who hit .375 this year. Hit five home runs and drove in 22 runs. Two of his home runs came in CUNY games with half of the 22 RBI. (crowd clapping) Gomez knows he has to
be careful with Grillo. Jose Ramirez, the third
baseman hugging the line. The throw goes to first. (crowd yelling) Outfield is basically straight away. Maybe Rowin Rodriguez in center shaded a step or two towards left. The first pitch of the
at-bat, Burnette goes. It’s lined to center field. Rodriguez makes the catch, and they may double up Burnette. It’s coming back to the infield now. And the throw from Deaza
who was a little off or else they may have doubled up Burnette. But still that’s two outs in the inning as Grillo lines out to Rodriguez. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, the catcher, number 18, Nicholas Yip. – [David] Looked like
Rodriguez came in at first and then went back to
make the tough catch. Now the cleanup hitter Nicholas Yip is up. Yip hit .318, the majority
of his hits were singles. (rap music) That catch by Rodriquez
may have saved a run ’cause the hit and run was on. If that goes over his head, it goes to the wall, and Burnette probably scores, and Queensborough’s in business. Instead, it’s a man on first with two out. Broncos lead two-nothing. Burnette goes, pitch is
outside, throw to second. Burnette is safe. (crowd applauding) A stole base for Lebro Burnette. Roger Mischel, very aggressive coach. And now Burnette is in
scoring position for Yip. – [Crowd Members] Yip, Yip, Yip, Yip. – [David] Two out hits such
a bit part of the game. Yip looking for one here. The DH Hamo Deljanin is on deck. (crowd muttering) (crowd clapping) so Gomez gets back on the mound. Again, Rodriguez is
shaded a bit towards left in center field. (crowd clapping) Gomez gets the sign. The one-O pitch to Yip. – [Crowd Members] Let’s go. – [David] It’s low and outside
for ball two, two and O. Last time Bronx Community College won the CUNY championship,
it was against Queensborough. Remember it was the relief
pitcher Anthony Perdomo who shut the Tigers out for 3 2/3 innings. Here’s the two-O pitch from Gomez, and that’s low for ball
three, three and O. Burnette on second. He led off with the single,
and then after two outs, he stole second base. (crowd clapping) Queensborough fans making some noise. See if Mischel gives him the
green light on three and O. He does not. It’s three and one. Yip should get something good to hit now. (crowd clapping) Deaza making believe he’s looking for a pickoff throw. The three-one is high, and it’s ball four. Two on and two out. Yip works the walk and
Hamo Deljanin is on now. Two on, two out. – [PA Announcer] The designated hitter, number 15, Hamo Deljanin. (crowd cheering) – [David] Deljanin looking
for his first CUNY title. He red shirted last year, a sophomore. Has a big hole on the right side. He could hit a ground ball through there. And now Deaza moves back into place. That pitch is high and away, ball one. Now there’s gonna be a
meeting at the mound. Deljanin’s gonna have a
word with Roger Mischel. (crowd cheering) A lot of theses CUNY title games have been dominated by pitchers especially on the Queensborough side. Remember Scagnelli last year. 2010 Frank Milito pitched
a complete game six hitter against the Bronx. Tigers won six-two. 2008 Victor Gonzalez pitched
a complete game, three hitter struck out 14 Broncos
and threw 158 pitches. 88 of those were strikes. (crowd members yelling) Right now it’s Deljanin versus Gomez. Two on, two out in the first inning. The count is one and O, and the pitch is lined to short. It’s off his glove. Burnette’s gonna come around to score. Two-one, and now Deljanin goes
to second, and he’s in there. (crowd cheering) Tigers cut the lead in half. It went right off the glove of Ycaza. (crowd cheering) Deljanin squirts that one,
and then heads up running took second base. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the second baseman, number 68, Calvin Luk, number 68. – [David] Then a mistake made by Suarez. It won’t show up as an
error, but he should’ve thrown back into second. He threw to third, and so Deljanin went from first to second. Calvin Luk is up now. (crowd cheering) tying run on third, go
ahead run on second. The first pitch hits the
outside corner for strike one. (crowd yelling) Deaza at second base is on the
outfield grass, now comes in. The O-one is in there for strike two. O and two, Richard Tejada on deck if it should get to him. Gomez trying to limit the damage and get out of it right here. He’s ahead O and two on Luk. See if he gets him fishing on something. The pitch, well held up. It’s one and two. Not a bad idea. That fastball up can be
very enticing to hitters. Luk looked like he wanted
to pull the trigger, thought better of it. It’s one and two. And the pitch is fouled away. Luk stays alive. (crowd cheering) So it’s Nicholas Yip on third
and Hamo Deljanin on second. Calvin Luk up now, two on, two out. (crowd cheering) And the one-two pitch. (crowd cheering) Just missed, just missed. Gomez was already walking
back to the dugout. Rowin Rodriguez in center
field can’t believe it. He goes back to his position. He was walking back to the dugout. Tough for a pitcher when
you have a put away pitch that you think will strike the guy out, and you don’t get the call. He’s gotta recover. And the two-two pitch is fouled away. (crowd muttering) So deuces are wild to Luk. And Gomez, that’s gotta
be tough for a pitcher to have a put away pitch, you think you’re out of the inning. Now you’ve gotta come back mentally. You can’t just throw a
cookie right down the middle. The two-two pitch is in
the dirt, ball three. Very nice stop by Daniel Rojas. (crowd cheering) Now it’s three and two. (crowd yelling) Good form by Rojas that saved
the lead for the Broncos momentarily anyway. The payoff pitch from Gomez
is lined to center field. Rodriguez… After one inning, it’s the
Broncos two, the Tigers one. – [PA Announcer] So the
Tigers, they pick up one run on two hits, and they leave two. At the end of one inning of
play, it’s the Broncos two and the Tigers one. And baseball fans, don’t
forget after the game, go on over to one of the participating Applebee restaurants in the five boroughs, Westchester or Rockland County. Enjoy a great meal, a
great dessert, or burgers. Show your CUNY ID card– – [David] Due up in the
second against Salazar, it’s Edwin Ramirez, Jonathan
Suarez, and Jose Ramirez. (rock music) So a look back at some of
these Queensborough-Bronx games in the past. 2011 was the last time they
met, Bronx won six-five. Shortstop Berny Polanco was the MVP. He was three for four, scored a run and drove another one in. 2010 was Frank Milito pitching
a complete game six hitter. (rock music) 2009 Bronx beat the Tigers five-four. They scored two runs in
the bottom of the eighth to take the lead. The pitcher Victor Lopez was the MVP. He pitched 6 2/3 innings,
gave up two earned runs, struck out eight and went two for four and drove in a run. Not a bad game. 2008 Queensborough beat the Bronx. – [PA Announcer] The designated hitter, number 31 Edwin Ramirez. – [David] That was the
game Victor Gonzalez threw 158 pitches in. Now leading off the second
is the DH number 31, Edwin Ramirez. A utility player who hit
.302 in the regular season. Infield at normal depth, the pitch from Salazar misses, ball one. Broncos, two runs on one hit. Tigers, one run on two hits. Burnette in center field
is shaded towards left. The one-O pitch from Salazar
is in there for strike one. It evens up the count. Salazar has gotta make
sure not to fall behind on hitters this inning. The one-one pitch is fouled off, and that’ll go into the stands. Richard Tejada went
over to give it a look. Far out of his reach. Now Salazar ahead on Ramirez one and two. (crowd cheering) Looking for the strike out. The one-two pitch grounded
through the hole, base hit. Espinosa and Grillo both
dove for it, both missed it. And the leadoff man is on once again. Now the left fielder Jonathan
Suarez, number 12 is up. All 12 of Suarez’s hits
this year were singles. See if the Broncos and Adolfo
Dejesus puts something on. (drum music) Not going, and the bunt. It’s a good one. Tejada fields it. And now the ump says it was foul. So do it again. Tejada picked it up a moment too late. And, it’s O and one on Suarez. So a little more
conservative with the bunt. And now you never know. They could take that off
and put on a hit and run. And now that they saw
him bunt, he could always square around and then swing away. O and one to Suarez. Runner not going, squares around again. Fielded by Yip, the throw
to first is in time. (crowd applauding) Put it two to three in your scorecard. Sacrifice gets Ramirez to second. And now Jose Ramirez is up. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the third baseman, number 18 Jose Ramirez. – [David] Ramirez hit .256
this year, drove in 13 runs. He’s got a man in scoring
position with one out. The pitch, nice off-speed pitch. It’s right down the middle for strike one. O and one as Ramirez looks at the sign. This is the bottom of the lineup. Ramirez the eight hitter. Crioni Brazoban, the
nine hitter, is on deck. The O-one pitch grounded to short. Grillo throw to first is in time, and they hold Edwin Ramirez at second. – [PA Announcer] The right fielder, number 16 Crioni Brazoban. – [David] Now Crioni Brazoban is up. Starting right fielder.
– Hey batter, batter. – [David] Salazar faked to
second, nobody was there. – [Thomas] Two out, big infield! – [David] Three-O the shortstop
telling all the outfielders there are two outs. Salazar’s pitch, swing and a miss. Brazoban was really out in front, fooled by the off-speed
stuff from Salazar. The O-one pitch, and it’s
gonna go to the backstop. Edwin Ramirez is gonna go to third. It went right through the legs of Yip. That’s the second wild
pitch thrown from Salazar. Now the count is even on Brazoban. (crowd muttering) When there’s a man on
third, that kinda takes away the pitch in the
dirt now ’cause you can’t afford a wild pitch here. The one-one just missed. It’s two and one. Brazoban looking for a two out hit. It would put the Broncos up by two again. Espinosa playing pretty close to the line. So there are some holes
between short and third, and up the middle there’s a lot of room. The two-one pitch is lined to left. Coming on, and it’s a base hit. And the Broncos lead three to one. Big two out hit by Brazoban. Edwin Ramirez scores to
make it three-one Broncos. (crowd member yelling) And you never know about the wild pitch, but maybe if Ramirez was
– The second basemen Claudio Deaza.
– still on second, Jacquez would’ve been able
to throw him out at home, but we’ll never know. Broncos lead three-one, second inning. Three runs on three hits. Tigers one run on two hits as
Salazar looks back the runner. Claudio Deaza up for the second time. First inning, he walked and stole second and came around to
score on Ycaza’s double. That’s fouled away, O and one. (crowd muttering) Roger Mischel to keep
in mind likes to stick with his pitchers in these games. Remember Frank Milito
pitched 8 1/3 innings two years ago even though
he gave up six runs. Ground ball to Grillo. He’ll take it himself. And Salazar works out of a slight jam, but not before the Broncos
score to make it three-one. After an inning and a half,
it’s the Broncos three and the Tigers one. – [PA Announcer] The
Broncos pick up one run off one hit, and they leave one. At the end of an inning and a half, it’s the Broncos three and the Tigers one. – [David] So that was one run on two hits in the second inning off Salazar. And now Gomez goes back out
with a two run lead again. Remember he gave up a run in the first. Now it’s seven, eight,
nine in the order due up. Richard Tejada, Alex
Pangourelias, Timothy Jacquez. (announcer muttering) – [Announcer] Working for

in CUNY title game history. Back in 2000, they were down five-nothing to the Kingsborough Wave. They came roaring back to win 14-seven. They scored four runs in
three different innings. The MVP that year was Manny Zavala broke a six-six tie with a two run homer. – [PA Announcer] Www.cunyathletics.com. – [David] Wild game, that
is to be down five-nothing, and then win by a
football score, 14-seven. (rock music) So now Richard Tejada,
number 22, the first baseman will leadoff for the Tigers. Gomez working with a two run lead again. This could shape up like last year’s game which was five-five after 2 1/2 innings, and then Queensborough
scored four in the bottom of the fifth, but that was
it, and they won nine-five. Here’s the first pitch
of the second inning. It’s in there for strike one. Jose Ramirez, the third
baseman is almost on the grass. (crowd clapping) guarding against a possible bunt. The O-one pitch is fouled away. It’s O and two. – [PA Announcer] O and
two for the first baseman, number 22, Richard Tejada. – [Crowd Member] Go Ritchie! Way to go Ritchie! – [David] Now Gomez will
try to put him away. – [Crowd Member] Yeah 22. – [David] The outfield is
basically straight away. Rodriguez shading a bit towards left. The O-two pitch is in
the dirt, one and two. – [Crowd Member] Way to go, Ritchie. – [David] Tried to get Tejada to fish, but that was a bit too far outside. – [Crowd Member] Let’s go, Richard. – [Crowd Member] Way to go, Ritchie. – [David] Now you don’t want to give a guy a good pitch to hit on O
and two or one and two, but you don’t wanna just throw balls and get him back in that at bat. (crowd clapping) Gomez gets the sign, the one-two pitch is high and inside, two and two. And Tejada has evened up the count. (crowd cheering) The two-two is low, and
it goes from O and two to three and two. (crowd muttering) Gomez doesn’t want to
put the leadoff guy on. Lebro Burnette led off
the first with a single. Gomez, the three-two pitch is fouled away. (crowd muttering) And so they’ll do it
again on three and two. (crowd clapping) The payoff pitch is high
and outside for ball four. Tejada works a walk after being down in the count O and two. And now Alex Pangourelias is up. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number 55, Alex Pangourelias. – [David] Pangourelias looks at the sign from Roger Mischel. Pangourelias played his high school ball at Bayside for Pat Torney
as did Roger Mischel a few years before him. Pangourelias squares around
and fouls off the bunt. Pangourelias attended Odessa
College in Texas last year, division one school before
coming to Queensborough. Gets the sign from Mischel. (crowd clapping) So each team playing it a
little more conservative in the second inning. Bronx bunted in the top of the inning. Pangourelias squared
around on the first pitch. We’ll see if he does it again. He does and takes outside. It’s one and one. Good eye from Pangourelias. I think he saw that pitch was gonna be outside, and he took the
bunt off pretty early, pulled back pretty early I should say. Staring down Mischel along for the signs. (crowd muttering) (crowd clapping) Throw goes back to first. Tejada is back in safely. (crowd cheering) (crowd clapping) Pangourelias squares around again. It’s bunted back to the pitcher. He’ll take the sure out. Pangourelias does his job. And now a runner is in
scoring position with one out. And Timothy Jacquez is up. – [PA Announcer] The left fielder, number seven, Timothy Jacquez. – [David] Jacquez is a very good hitter. Hit .328 this year, .400 in CUNY games and had a .500 on base
percentage in the 12 CUNY games. – [Crowd Members] Lebro,
Lebro, Lebro, Lebro, Lebro. – [David] And a big hole
between third and short. They’re playing him to pull. The pitch is into the right center field. (crowd cheering) Will the run score? Yes, it’s three-two. An RBI single for
Jacquez, and then he takes second on the throw. The Tigers cut into the lead again. (crowd cheering) And now the top of the lineup is up. – [PA Announcer] The center fielder, number 16, Lebro Burnette. (rock music) – [David] Well there’s a reason they were playing Jacquez to pull. Hit one into right-center. Three-two now as Richard
Tejada comes around to score. And the bunt from Mischel works. Got the runner into scoring
position, and he scored. – [Crowd Members] Lebro, Lebro, Lebro. – [David] Burnette singled
to right his first time up. That pitch is in the dirt. It’s one and O. (crowd cheering) Burnette had a .765 slugging percentage in CUNY games this year. – [Crowd] Here we go, Lebro, here we go. Here we go, Lebro, here we go. – [David] And there’s a big
hole between short and second. – [Crowd] Here we go, Lebro, here we go. – [David] They’re really
playing these Tigers to pull. And that pitch is in the dirt. It’s two and O. Deaza, the second baseman, is really close to the first baseman, Bethea. You will not see a second baseman and a first baseman that
close most of the time. – [Crowd Members] Here we
go South side, here we go. – [David] So Burnette’s got a big hole between short and second
and third and short. – [Crowd] Here we go,
South side, here we go. – [David] They’re really gambling that he’s gonna hit it down
the line or close to it. The two-O is hit right
to the first baseman. The throw goes back to second,
and a line drive double play. Jacquez wasn’t sure if it was trapped or caught on the line. And so Burnette hits into
a tough luck double play. The Tigers again score
– The Tigers score one run on one hit, runner left.
– one run. After two innings, it’s the Broncos three and the Tigers two. – [PA Announcer] And the Tigers two. (crowd muttering) (rock music) – [David] Salazar is gonna look for his first scoreless inning. Two, three, and four in the order due up, Mark Ycaza, Ritchie
Bethea, and Daniel Rojas. (rock music) There hasn’t been a zero on the board yet. Two in the first for the Broncos, one in the first for the Tigers. Each team scored one in the second. (rock music) This may not be the
pitchers’ duel I hinted at in the opening when I ran down a bunch of CUNY title game MVPs
that were pitchers. (electronic rock music) There is a funny story about the 2008 game when Victor Gonzalez, Mark Vallaro was the closer that year, and he thought he might get into the game. He’s thinking this guys’
thrown 150 pitches, how long are they gonna keep him in? Well they let him finish the whole game, a complete game three hitter. – [PA Announcer] The shortstop,
number 13, Mark Ycaza. – [David] Now Mark Ycaza’s up. In his first at bat,
Ycaza had an RBI double, moved over to third on
a fly ball to center, and then came home on a wild pitch. Salazar’s pitch is high for ball one. Salazar went to Grover
Cleveland High School. He was on the varsity
baseball, basketball, swimming, and wrestling teams. One-O pitch to Ycaza is fouled off. Tejada goes over. And he’ll give it a look,
but it’s out of his reach. He pitched two years at Grover Cleveland High School, Salazar did. 2010, he went O and four
with an ERA of 9.33. The following year, he improved a lot, went three and four, an ERA of 2.83. Lowered his ERA by 6 1/2 runs. Salazar looks in for the sign from Yip. The one-one pitch is fouled away. That nearly hit a car. One and two now. (crowd clapping) Salazar trying to retire the leadoff man for the first time today. The one-two pitch outside, two and two. (crowd muttering) Infield is straight
away, so is the outfield though Burnette’s shaded
a bit towards left. A lot of room in right-center field should he hit it there. That’s popped up. Tejada tries to get the
umpire out of the way. He does and makes the catch. So the first man is retired, and that’ll bring up Ritchie Bethea. Bethea flew out to center
field in his first at bat. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the first baseman, number 29, Richard Bethea. – [David] Earlier in the yeah, Bethea was named CUNY Player of the Week for March 18th through the 24th. That week we was eight
for 13 with seven RBI, scored three times and stole four bases. As that is outside for ball one. Seven RBI and four stolen bases would be a nice year for a number of players. It was one week for Bethea. The one-O pitch is lined to center field. Burnette cannot make the catch. (crowd cheering) They’re saying it was trapped. He had it in his glove and held it up. They’re saying no, it
hit the ground first. It was close. And they actually put two
outs on the scoreboard. Somebody in the press box
thought it was a catch. It was not. It’s a single, a one out
single for Ritchie Bethea. Now there’s a man on first
for the cleanup hitter Daniel Rojas. Swing and a miss. – [PA Announcer] Now batting,
Daniel Rojas, the catcher. – [David] Rojas was also
named CUNY Player of the Week. That was from April eighth to the 14th. That week he went six for 10,
eight RBI, six runs scored, a double, two triples, and two walks, one man wrecking crew. The O-one pitch misses, evens
up the count at one and one. There was one great game he
had against the BMCC Panthers where he was three for
three with six RBIs, scored three runs and had two triples. See if Coach Dejesus
has anything starting. Not going, and the pitch
is in there for strike two. One and two. (crowd cheering) The one two pitch is fouled away making Salazar work. (organ music) So Ritchie Bethea is on first base. He lined one to center field
that Burnette just missed. It was just out of his reach. The one-two pitch from
Salazar, ground ball. They go to second, and it’s
thrown into the outfield. And now it’s first and
second with one out. (crowd applauding) And a mistake by Calvin Luk. He should’ve taken the sure out at first. (crowd muttering) See if they mark that a hit or an error. They haven’t announced it as of yet. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the center fielder, number 19, Rowin Rodriguez. (salsa music) – [David] And now Rowin Rodriguez is up. Two on, one out, the pitch
is in for strike one. Rodriguez another Bronco who was named CUNY Player of the Week. The O-one pitch from Salazar is outside, evens up the count at one and one. (crowd muttering) Rodriguez had a game
winning two run double to beat Queensborough
eight-seven in a game earlier this year. The pitch is fouled away. Espinosa goes over and gives it a look. It’s one and two now. Salazar would love a double play ball to get him out of this inning. Looking for his first scoreless inning. And they never made an announcement if that was a hit or an error. The one-two pitch from
Salazar is lined, left field. Dejesus is gonna hold him up. Waving his arms a bit,
but good play by Jacquez to get it back in fast, but now the bases are loaded with one out. And Edwin Ramirez is up. – [PA Announcer] The designated hitter, number 31, Edwin Ramirez. – [David] Ramirez singled
to leadoff the second and then came around to score. (crowd cheering) and now there will be a meeting
at the mound for Salazar who’s laboring a bit. (rock music) This could be a turning point in the game. Also interesting defensive alignment depending on how hard the ball is hit, do you go for the double
play, or do you throw home, stop the run from scoring? (rock music) Now the umpire out to break this up. (rock music) (crowd cheering) Edwin Ramirez with the chance
to knock in a few runs here. (crowd cheering) So Burnette shaded a bit towards left. Espinosa is even with the bag at third. And that’s fouled away, O and one. Edwin Ramirez was looking to attack and swung at the first pitch. (crowd muttering) Richard Tejada, the first
basemen is in a little bit. If it’s hit to him, I think
he’s coming home with it. If it’s hit to third,
Espinosa can either come home or step on the bag and throw to first. Interesting split second decisions the infielders have to make. The pitch is in the dirt. And nice stop by Yip. Salazar’s already thrown two wild pitches. Yip saved a third. The count is one and one. Broncos lead three-two top of the third, bases loaded, one out. Salazar gets the sign
and the one-one pitch is hit going up the middle. Grillo, it goes off his glove. One run scores. Here comes another. He’s safe, and it’s five-two. (crowd cheering) It just went off the glove of Grillo, and the Broncos have their
biggest lead of the game. (crowd muttering) Five-two in the top of the third. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the left fielder, number 12, Jonathan Suarez. – [David] Jonathan Suarez up now. He bunted his first time up. Now Queensborough may have to look out for the squeeze play
whether it’s a suicide or a safety squeeze. Broncos lead five-two, top of the third. The pitch just missed for ball one. Maybe more than just missed. Still nobody up in the bullpen. Mischel sticking with Salazar. Salazar hoping to stop
the bleeding right here. Squeeze is on and executed beautifully. And it’s six-two, and the runner is safe. Everybody’s safe for the Broncos. A perfectly executed squeeze play. Rodriguez comes home to score. Edwin Ramirez moves to second, and Suarez is on first. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] The third baseman, number 18 Jose Ramirez. – [David] Six-two and still two on. It seems like a long time ago, but Salazar retired Ycaza
on a pop-up to first for the first out of the inning. Now five Broncos in a row get on, six-two. Up the middle and it gets through. Here comes another run. Burnette’s throw home is too high. It’s seven-two. The Broncos offense exploding. RBI single for Jose Ramirez, and he takes second on the throw. Second and third, one out. – [PA Announcer] The right fielder, number 16, Crioni Brazoban. – [David] Now the nine hitter
is up, Crioni Brazoban. Four runs this inning for the Broncos. Two in the first, one in the second, now four in the third. So the Tigers bullpen starts to get loose. Here’s a bit of an interesting
defensive alignment. Espinosa’s on the grass at third. Tejada is back at first. Now Espinosa backs up a bit. They don’t want to bring the infield in and then give up two runs on a base hit. The pitch from Salazar, swing and a miss. Remember Brazoban was
out in front of the pitch last inning like that to start the at bat. Of course, he had an RBI single. Dejesus put on one squeeze already. Would he put on another? The O-one pitch is low
and away, one and one. (announcer muttering) And yet, may have saved
another run from scoring. ‘Cause when Salazar tries to throw it out of the zone, he’s been throwing a lot of pitches in the dirt. And Yip’s knee pads are getting a workout. Now the infield comes in a bit. Grillo is in at short. Espinosa in at third, first. Second baseman Calvin
Luk is about halfway. The one-one is in the
dirt again, two and one. (crowd clapping) Salazar wild tonight. – [Crowd Member] Get him out of here. – [David] So the Tiger defense looking to cut down the run at home. The two-one pitch, and it gets through. It’s gonna be eight-two. Now they’re waving the other one in. And it gets past Jacquez. Nine-two, the throw goes to second. And he’s safe. Nine-two in the third inning. Brazoban with his second
RBI hit of the game. (crowd cheering) And the regular season CUNY champions are down by seven in the third inning. (crowd cheering) Now Claudio Deaza is up. Nine-two in the third inning. This is Deaza’s third at bat. It’s popped up. And the catch is made by
Tejada for the second out of the inning. (crowd muttering) And now this will be
Mark Ycaza’s second out of the inning.
– The shortstop, number 13, Mark Ycaza. – [David] Nine-two in the third. Ycaza is one for two, popped up to third earlier this inning. In the first inning, he had an RBI double and came around to score on a wild pitch. That misses for ball one. Salazar’s one-O pitch is
fouled away, one and one. In other Queensborough
news, the Pete Marchitello softball team lost today to Westchester in Regional 15 playoffs. The one-one from Salazar is
high for ball two, two and one. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Tigers, Let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. – [David] Broncos offense has exploded here tonight.
– Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. – [David] The two-one pitch. Fly ball, right field and foul. The count is even at two and two. Pangourelias couldn’t get there in time, may have lost it for a second. And if there are two plays Queensborough may look back at, I think they’re really gonna look back at when
Daniel Rojas was up and Calvin Luk threw to
second when he should’ve gone to first. I mean there would’ve been a man on second with two outs in a three-two game. The wheels kind of came off after that. Right now, it’s nine-two. The two-two pitch, line
drive, right field. Pangourelias is there to make the catch. (crowd member yelling) So the side is finally retired but not before the Broncos
score six runs in the inning on six hits. – [PA Announcer] Broncos pick up six runs on six hits. They leave one baserunner– – [David] They lead nine-two. How ’bout Mark Ycaza making the first and third out of the inning. How do you think Omar Gomez feels? He keeps going to the
hill with two run leads. He goes out for the bottom of the third staked to a seven run lead. His Broncos have nine runs on nine hits. Now it’s his job to shut the door. He doesn’t wanna give Queensborough any hope of life here. It’ll be the two, three, four hitters, Jeinson Espinosa, Thomas
Grillo, and Nicholas Yip. – [PA Announcer] Use the hashtag when you have a chance and– – [David] And if you’re Queenborough, you can still, look you have seven innings to get back in this game or seven at bats. – [PA Announcer] Also
ladies and gentlemen, visit www.cunyatheltics.com for the latest and greatest in CUNY athletics

for the free tickets. – [David] So Jeinson Espinosa will leadoff the third inning. He popped up to third
base in his first at bat. (PA announcer muttering) Espinosa has a nice
combination of power and speed. He hit two home runs,
stole six bases this year. The sophomore from Benjamin
Cardozo High School right across the street
from Queensborough. – [PA Announcer] The third baseman, number two, Jeinson Espinosa. – [David] So Espinosa, number
two, leads off the inning. He was a three hitter in last year’s game, now in the two spot as that
pitch he had to duck from. It’s one and O. Nine-two in the third inning. Hitters have to be a bit patient. They can’t hit a seven run homer. Two and O, and not what Gomez needs, to fall behind these Tigers. Just gotta get out in front of them early and put them away. Infield is back and straightaway. And the outfield is straightaway. Rodriguez maybe a step
or two over in left. (crowd clapping) Rodriguez takes low for
ball three, three and O. One thing to keep in mind, Gomez was on the bench for a very long time. – [Crowd] Here we go, Jeinson, here we go. – [David] That’s one thing, you don’t want a pitcher to get cold. While I’m sure he didn’t
mind seeing his team score six runs as that
pitch hits Espinosa. So the leadoff man is on for Queensborough for the third time in three innings. Now Thomas Grillo is up. (crowd muttering) – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the shortstop, number nine, Thomas Grillo. – [David] Grillo a .444
on base percentage. Now a meeting at the mound. They’re saying, “Omar get some outs. “You’re up by seven runs, no need “to make it interesting.” Grillo flew out to center
field his first time up. Had a good swing. It was a hit and run, and
Burnette was on the move. And Rodriguez made a nice catch. They almost doubled up Burnette at first. Good for the Tigers that they didn’t because Burnette eventually scored. So wonder if this takes
away some aggressive play calling from Roger Mischel. You don’t need to make
outs on the base paths down by seven. So that may be it for the hit and runs. It’s probably gonna be it for the bunts. I don’t think they’re in any position to give up outs at this point. (crowd clapping) And the runner goes. There’s a pop up. Going out, and the catch is made. Deaza makes the catch. Espinosa had a very good jump. He had to make sure he got back in time. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, the catcher, number 18, Nicholas Yip. – [David] So Roger Mischel
not losing any aggressiveness still trying a hit and run down by seven gotta get something started. Mischel not a coach to sit on his hands and just watch the game. Though he did joke after last year’s game. I don’t know if he was
joking, but he stayed out of it more than any other game, the CUNY title game that is. Although they still were very aggressive. They stole seven bases last year. Throw to first, they have him leaning, and he’s out. (crowd cheering) Espinosa’s picked off. And they may have had
the hit and run on again. Even if they did, that’s inexcusable to be picked off down by seven runs. Now it’s two on, excuse
me, two outs, nobody on. (crowd cheering) And a good quick throw from Gomez. That’s high, one and O. This could be the first
scoreless inning for either team. The one-O pitch outside, two and O. Yip walked in the first inning
and was stranded at third. (crowd cheering) The two-O pitch from Gomez. Swing and a miss. The cleanup hitter Yip
certainly did not get cheated on that one. He was swinging for the downs. Who can forget Bobby
Mcdowell’s three run homer last year at MCU park in
Brooklyn off Shane Cafaro. (crowd clapping) That one was a monster
shot, and actually MCU Park was supposed to be the
site of this year’s game. Hurricane Sandy really more
or less destroyed the park and the area around Coney Island and that was six months ago. They’re actually gonna fix
the field by next week. It doesn’t matter tonight. The game is at the
College of Staten Island. That’s fouled away. It’s two and two. Deuces are wild to Nicholas Yip. Should he get on, Hamo
Deljanin is on deck. (crowd clapping) The defense is straightaway
for the Broncos. The two-two pitch is fouled away, and we’ll do it again. (crowd muttering) Two and two, Gomez versus Yip. In the dirt, three and two. Don’t wanna walk guys here. (organ music) (crowd muttering) (crowd clapping) – [Crowd Member] Let’s go, buddy. – [David] Broncos looking for their 10th CUNY championship in
school history tonight. Gomez looking for the third
out of the third inning. And the three-two pitch
to Yip is fouled away just out of the reach of Bethea who will leadoff the top of the fourth. (orchestral music) – [Crowd Member] No, no. – [David] So the infield is straightaway, three and two, and I expect
Gomez to challenge Yip here. (crowd clapping) The payoff pitch is low for ball four. May have tried to throw
that one a little too hard. And now, Deljanin is up. – [PA Announcer] Now batting,
the designated hitter number 15, Hamo Deljanin.
– You don’t like to play the what if game, but if
Espinosa was not picked off, would it be two on and one out right now? Deljanin had an RBI
single his first time up. A liner that went off
the glove of Mark Ycaza and into short left field. That’s high and away
for ball one, one and O. Now Bethea has a word with Gomez telling him to settle
down and throw strikes. One and O to Deljanin. (crowd clapping) Gomez looks in for the sign
from Rojas, sets, and delivers. And it’s in there for strike one. Deljanin looked at the strike. – [Crowd Member] Let’s go, Hamo. – [David] Bronx has three,
four, and five hitters due up in the top of the fourth. Right now, Gomez looking for
the first scoreless inning of the night. The one-one pitch is
fouled away one and two. He actually has not struck
out any hitters tonight, neither has Mark Salazar. (crowd muttering) These teams are hitting well tonight especially the Broncos. One and two to Hamo Deljanin,
the designated hitter for the Tigers. And the pitch is fouled away. May have been a little bit behind that to foul it off towards
the right field line. One and two as Gomez looks
in for the sign from Rojas. And now, time is called. (crowd muttering) Deljanin, let’s see if he adjusts with two strikes now. A pretty good sized hole
between first and second. The one-two pitch from
Gomez is up the middle for a base hit. And a two out rally for the Tigers. Two on and two out, Calvin Luk coming up. (crowd muttering) – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the second baseman, number 68, Clavin Luk. – [David] Calvin Luk
at second base tonight, also pitched for Queensborough this year. Had an ERA of about 5.40, but it was two runs lower in CUNY games. So Roger Mischel had
to be happy with that. He’ll be happy if Luk
could get a hit right here. The pitch from Gomez is
outside for ball one. Richard Tejada is on deck in
case it should get to him. Luk flew out to center
field in his first at bat back in the first inning. (crowd cheering) The one-O pitch is lined to center field. Rodriguez makes the catch. And for the second time, Luk leaves two on as he flies out to center
field to end the inning. So Gomez leaves two on. He gave up one hit in the inning. Queensborough couldn’t score.
– And for the Tigers no runs on one hit, and leave two. At the end of three innings of play, it’s the Broncos, nine,
and the Tigers two. – [David] So the Tigers
have left four on base now. – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like to take a moment to remember to show support for our friend on– – [David] Nine-two Broncos
lead after three innings. – [PA Announcer] Please join in as we send our good wishes to our
friends to the north, the good people of Boston Massachusetts. ♪ Reaching out touching me ♪ ♪ Touching you ♪ ♪ Sweet Caroline ♪ ♪ Good times never seemed so good ♪ ♪ I’ve been inclined ♪ ♪ To believe there never would ♪ ♪ But now I ♪ ♪ Look at the night ♪ ♪ And it don’t seem so lonely ♪ ♪ We filled it up with only two ♪ ♪ And when I hurt ♪ ♪ Hurting runs off my shoulders ♪ ♪ How can I hurt when I’m holding you ♪ ♪ Warm touching warm ♪ ♪ Reaching out ♪ ♪ Touching me, touching you ♪ ♪ Sweet Caroline ♪ – [David] So Mark
Salazar is back out there for the fourth inning. Ritchie Bethea will lead off. He singled and scored in the
third inning for the Bronx. ♪ All aboard ♪ – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the first baseman, number 29, Richard Bethea. – [David] Bethea had 34 runs batted in during the regular season. (crowd muttering) Pitch is popped up. Yip missed it. He over ran it. Had to make sure he
didn’t run into the fence. And if he slowed up just a bit, they would’ve had a one pitch out. Instead, he over ran it, O and one. Bethea, the first baseman
who’s up right now, he also did some pitching this year, some mop up duty. He gave up 10 earned
runs in three innings, gave up two home runs. But he doesn’t make his
racket on the mound. The O-one pitch is in
there for strike two. So Salazar gets ahead O and two. Actually retired the leadoff
man in the last inning and then gave up six runs. That pitch is outside for
ball one, one and two. Ycaza made the first and
third out of the third inning. Swing and a miss, nice pitch by Salazar. Bethea goes down swinging. First strike out of the
game for Mark Salazar. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] Now batting, number 15, the catcher, Daniel Rojas. – [David] Queensborough
has won 14 CUNY titles in the school’s history
as Daniel Rojas steps up. Rojas O for two although he reached on an error and came around to score. Swing and a miss. (crowd cheering) And the way I mentioned
before Adolfo Dejesus is the only coach to
ever win for the Broncos. There have been a lot of coaches who have won for Queensborough. The O-one pitch from Salazar
is lined to center field. Burnette under it and makes the catch. Two outs in the fourth, Salazar looking for a one, two, three inning. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the center fielder, number 19, Rowin Rodriguez. – [David] Rowin Rodriguez who singled and scored last inning is up. Mike Mile was the first
Queensborough coach to win a CUNY title. He won in ’89 and ’90. In ’91, they won with Ed Tatarian who had coached Cardozo for 20 years, who coached Queens College for six or seven years after Queensborough. 1992, Lou Santos was the CUNY
championship winning coach as there’s a bouncing ball. And an infield single for Rowin Rodriguez. So there will be no
one, two, three inning. Luk ran a long way just to get there, and then slipped as he
tried to throw to first. Edwin Ramirez is up now.
– The designated hitter, number 31, Edwin Ramirez. – [David] He singled
twice and scored twice. So Lou Santos who would
later coach Concordia. Now he’s a JV softball
coach at Archbishop Molloy. He won in ’92. Charles Aliano was the
winning coach in ’93 and ’94. And Aliano knew what guys
to bring into Queensborough, a good eye for talent
as that’s fouled away. He became a Major League scout for the Expos, the Blue
Jays, Astros, Brewers, Cubs. And in ’96 and ’97, they had Greg Burlin. And his best team may have been one that didn’t win the CUNY
championship, the ’98 team that lost in the CUNY championship game but finished eighth
nationally in division three as that pitch is high and evens up the count and one and one. Burlin actually in ’98, they lost to the Bronx Broncos in a
rain shortened region 15 tournament to fall short of the nationals. And then Burlin resigned one month before the start of the ’99 season as Salazar looks the
runner, Rodriguez, back. And so Maria Macarle who
was the athletic director before Pete Marchitello actually named co-coaches Steve Golde and
assistant under Burlin, and Mickey O’Conner who had been an assistant at Christ the King. Throw to second after the swing and a miss is not in time, or the ball squirted away. So now there’s a runner on second. One and two to Edwin Ramirez. (drum music) To finish up that story,
so they had co-coaches including Mickey O’Conner who had been a St. John’s pitcher in the mid ’70s who was drafted by the Minnesota Twins. And then Queensborough, they won in ’97. Their next CUNY title came in 2003 with Craig Everett as
coach and Roger Mischel was the winning pitcher. And that pitch just misses for ball two, evens up the count to two and two. Tigers won in ’03, ’04, and ’05. And they actually won the region in ’05. Craig Everett was actually on the ’93 CUNY championship team. Runner goes to third. Bouncing ball, and it
goes into the outfield, and it’s gonna be 10-two
in the fourth inning. (crowd cheering) Another two out rally and
a single by Edwin Ramirez. He’s now three for three.
– Now batting the right fielder, number
12, Jonathan Suarez. – [David] And Edwin Ramirez
is probably the early favorite for player of the game. (rock music) Luk gave a good effort
but went off his glove into the outfield. Now Jonathan Suarez is up. That’s a strike, O and one. This’ll be Suarez’s
first time swinging away. He had to sacrifice bunt
in the second inning, and then in the third, he was bunting on a squeeze play, and
he actually beat it out for an infield single and got the run in. The O-one pitch from
Salazar is fouled away. It’s O and two. Getting back to some
Queensborough history, Craig Everett won four
CUNY titles as coach and played on the ’93 team. He actually lost the 2002
CUNY title game as coach when the Tigers only had a 13 man roster. He was an excellent
recruiter basically had a PSAL all star team as
that pitch is fouled away. Yip was a little late to go back on it. He may have thought that
was going into the stands. I don’t know if he could’ve
gotten to it in time. Now Suarez is in the hole O and two. Broncos 10, Tigers two,
top of the fourth inning. And Salazar’s O-two pitch is lined. Luk goes back, makes the catch. It was a looping liner. Salazar gets out of the
inning, not before the Broncos score one run on two hits. They lead by eight after 3 1/2. – [PA Announcer] The
Broncos, they pick up one run on two hits. They leave one, and at
the end of 3 1/2 innings, it’s the Broncos, 10 and the Tigers, two. – [David] Now it’s seven, eight, and nine in the order due up for the Tigers, Richard Tejada, Alex
Pangourelias, and Timothy Jacquez. – [PA Announcer] Greet the
tiger, I promise he won’t bite. (“Cotton Eye Joe” by Rednex) – [David] Omar Gomez worked out of a bit of trouble in the third inning. Shut out the Tigers. ♪ Where did you come
from, where did you go ♪ ♪ Where did you come
from, Cotton-Eye Joe ♪ ♪ If it hadn’t been for Cotton-Eye Joe ♪ ♪ I’d been married a long time ago ♪ ♪ Where did you come
from, where did you go ♪ ♪ Where did you come
from, Cotton-Eye Joe ♪ – [David] Queensborough actually had seven, eight, nine due
up in the second inning, and they scored a run. (“Cotton Eye Joe” by Rednex) One thing Gomez has to bear down on is you don’t wanna lose your
focus when you’re a pitcher and you’re up by eight runs. And then you just start
throwing easy pitches for the guys to hit. He was actually doing the opposite. He hit Espinosa on the three-O pitch. He walked Yip. He gave up a single to Deljanin. ♪ If it hadn’t been for Cotton-Eye Joe ♪ ♪ I’d have been married a long time ago ♪ – [David] The important thing is he didn’t give up any
runs in the third inning. It was his first zero that
he threw up on the board. Those shut down innings
are big ’cause they had scored six runs for him. And for Gomez to go out and hold the Tigers scoreless in
the bottom of the inning, it keeps the momentum going for ya. Richard Tejada is up now,
number 22, the first baseman. He walked and scored back in the second. Tejada’s good at working walks. He hit .234, but his on base percentage was 123 points higher. (“Cotton Eye Joe” by Rednex) – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the first baseman, number 22, Richard Tejada. (crowd cheering) – [David] So Tejada facing Gomez to leadoff the fourth inning. And the first pitch is
in there for strike one. (crowd muttering) Tejada was taking the first pitch. Now there will be a meeting at the mound between Rojas and Gomez. – [PA Announcer] Try to make
some noise in this joint. (crowd cheering) – [David] Infield is straightaway,
outfield is straightaway. The O-one pitch from Gomez
is outside for a ball, evens up the count at one and one. (crowd clapping) Gomez looks in for the
sign, sets, and delivers. And swing and a miss, it’s one and two. (crowd muttering) (crowd clapping) The one-two pitch, a little
fister into center field. Throw from second, and it’s
an infield hit for Tejada. And Deaza was really quick. I thought that was going
into short center field. Deaza cut it off and
almost got Tejada at first, but his throw was in the dirt. Just a good job to get there, and now Alex Pangourelias is up. He bunted his first time up. He won’t be doing that down
by eight runs I don’t believe. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number 55, Alex Pangourelias. – [David] The story about
Pangourelias and Mischel, I told you before, they went
to the same high school. I’ll tell ya after this pitch. – [Umpire] Strike one. – [David] Strike one. When he was younger, Pangourelias played with Burnette and Jacquez,
excuse me not Jacquez, Grillo. It was Burnette, Grillo, and Pangourelias. They played together for Roger Mischel when they were younger and won a title. And they went their separate ways, and now they’re playing
together for Queensborough as Pangourelias takes
strike two down the middle. See what he can do with
the count O and two. Timothy Jacquez, the
nine hitter, is on deck. (crowd cheering) Outfield is playing pretty shallow. The O-two pitch, runner goes. Pitch is outside, and there will be no throw to second. And now the double play is off. Tejada with the steal, and Roger Mischel staying aggressive even down
10-two in the fourth inning. And he’s not gonna have his guys steal unless he knows they can make it. Now one and two to Pangourelias. (crowd cheering) Big hole between first and second. There’s a line drive to
center, and it falls, and it’s a base hit. And it’s gonna be runners on
the corners for the Tigers. (crowd cheering) Jacquez is up, two on, nobody out, chance to get back in the game. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the left fielder, number seven, Timothy Jacquez. (crowd cheering) (rock music) – [David] Bronx infield is back. They’re in double play depth. They’ll gladly give up
the run for the two outs. Bit of a hole between third and short. Also a hole between second and short. Second baseman, Deaza is pulled a bit. Throw to first, Gomez already picked off one Tiger tonight. (crowd cheering) Tejada on third, Pangourelias
on first, and nobody out. Pangourelias goes, and they fake the throw to second, and
Pangourelias is in there. Another stolen base. What Rojas didn’t want to do was throw to second and then
watch Tejada come home as Queensborough tried to steal a run. So a good decision by Mischel. He knew they probably
wouldn’t throw to second. So now it’s second and third, nobody out. The infield will still
trade the run for the out. No reason to play in up by eight. The O-one pitch, ground ball. Second, Deaza, nice play. Throw to first is in time. Tejada comes home to score. It’s 10-three. Pangourelias moves over to third. An RBI ground out for Jacquez. And now the top of the lineup is back up. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the center fielder, Lebro Burnette.
– Lebro Burnette. – [David] Infield still
back, another ground out would score a run. 10-three, Broncos in the fourth. Pitch to Burnette, flyball center field. Pangourelias tags up. Rodriguez makes the catch. They’re gonna test his arm. The throw home is off line, Pangourelias comes into score, and it’s 10-four. (crowd cheering) Nice piece of hitting for Burnette. It’s a sac fly and an RBI. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, number two, the third baseman Jeinson Espinosa. – [David] So Roger Mischel
staying aggressive, and it has led to two runs this inning. Queensborough has cut the
lead from eight to six. That’s how you have to make
it up, a little at a time. (crowd cheering) Espinosa’s up. He’s O for one and was hit by a pitch in his last at bat. That’s inside for ball one. Two outs in the bottom
of the fourth, nobody on. The Broncos 10 runs on 11 hits, no errors. The Queensborough Tigers four
runs, six hits, one error. The one-O pitch from Gomez to Espinosa is right in there for strike
one, evens up the count. ♪ Day O ♪ ♪ Day O ♪ – [David] Now a bit of
action in the Bronco bullpen down the right field line. The one-one pitch is inside,
ball two, two and one. Thomas Grillo is on deck in
case Espinosa should get on. (crowd cheering) Time is called. ♪ Day O ♪ ♪ Day O ♪ (crowd cheering) (crowd clapping) A little bad news for the Tigers. There’s never been a CUNY title game up to this point where each team scored double digit runs. Bronx hoping that trend
will continue tonight. The two-one pitch is in
the dirt and bounces away, three and one. (crowd muttering) (crowd cheering) Espinosa should get a good pitch to hit here on three and one. Gomez doesn’t want to walk him. Line drive to right
field, and it’s gonna go all the way to the wall, and Espinosa may have an inside the park home run. (crowd cheering) And Mischel is waving him around. Espinosa is going for it, and he’s in. An inside the park home run. Jeinson Espinosa makes
it 10-five in the fourth. (crowd cheering) It was Brazoban who dove
and couldn’t get it, and it went all the way to the wall. (crowd cheering) High risk, high reward play. – Now batting, the shortstop
– If he kept it in front of him, it would’ve
– Number nine, Thomas Grillo.
– been a single. Instead, it’s an inside the part home run. Three runs for
Queensborough in the fourth, and it’s 10-five. (crowd cheering) That’s one if you’re gonna
dive, you better make the catch. Instead of Espinosa being on first with a single, he scores with
an inside the park home run. Nice pitch from Gomez. Off-speed pitch was in there to Grillo. Grillo is O for two, fly out to center, popped out to second. (crowd cheering) The O-one pitch to Grillo misses. It evens up the count at one and one. Cleanup hitter Nicholas Yip is on deck. He’s walked twice. The one-one pitch is low,
ball two, two and one. (crowd cheering) Gomez struggling to get
behind these hitters, excuse me, struggling to
get ahead of these hitters. He’s fallen behind to everyone, and it’s three and one to Grillo. And Rojas is trying to settle him down. It was three and one to Espinosa when he hit the inside the park home run. And now Rojas is gonna make the trip out. And I’m sure Dejesus, the Bronx coach would like to keep him
in for five innings, so he could get the win, but if this gets to 10-six or 10-seven, I don’t think he’ll hesitate to take him out. 10-five in the bottom of the fourth. (crowd cheering) Infield is straightaway,
outfield is straightaway. A little looper to
center, Rodriguez is there and makes the catch. The Tigers are retired, not
before they score three runs. – [PA Announcer] The
Tigers pick up three runs on three hits, nobody left. At the end of four innings of play, it’s the Broncos 10, and the Tigers five. – [David] So 10-five heading
into the fifth inning. It’s Jose Ramirez, Crioni
Brazoban, and Claudio Deaza up for the Broncos. (electronic rock music) – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentleman, the CUNY Athletic Conference

the mound for Queensborough, Mark Salazar is done after four innings. Gave up 10 runs. He can lose the game, he can’t win it. – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please. Now pitching for the Tigers
number 17, Matthew Brown. (crowd cheering) – [David] Matthew Brown is
the new pitcher for the Tigers hoping to keep up the
momentum the Tiger offense started in the bottom of the fourth. It’s 10-five.
– Leading off the top of the fifth for the Broncos
is the third basemen, number 18, Jose Ramirez. – [David] Ball one. Jose Ramirez is one for two. He grounded out to short in the second. In the third inning, he had an RBI single and came around to score in
the Bronco’s six run third. Pitch is in the dirt, ball two, two and O. Matthew Brown trying to be
the James Scagnelli of 2013. (crowd muttering) 10-five in the top of the fifth. Brown behind Jose Ramirez two and O. And the pitch is high for ball three. (crowd cheering) The outfield is straightaway
as is the infield. (crowd cheering) The three-O pitch is bounced
in the dirt, ball four. (crowd cheering) A leadoff walk for Jose
Ramirez on four pitches. And now Crioni Brazoban
who’s two for two is up now. Similar at bats against Salazar. He swung and missed
early at the first pitch and eventually he had and RBI single. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, Crioni Brazoban. – [David] So he’s two for
two, three runs batted in and a run scored, and we’re
only in the fifth inning. ♪ Tonight, tonight and we’re dancing ♪ ♪ On the edge of the Hollywood sign ♪ ♪ I don’t know if I’m making it ♪ ♪ But that’s how good I’ll fake it ♪ ♪ It’s all right, all
right, tonight, tonight ♪ – [David] So Brown looks in for the sign. See if Dejesus has Ramirez go for second. Not going, the first pitch is low. Brown has now thrown
his first five pitches out of the zone. (crowd member whistling) It’s the only thing that
Dejesus would hesitate to put a hit and run on because Brown’s not throwing it in the strike zone. Not a bad pickoff move
by Brown but not in time to get the out. – [Crowd Member] Come on, Matty. – [David] Still one and O. The pitch from Brown, his
first strike of the night. It’s one and one. (crowd applauding) Brazoban, the nine hitter, and then back to the top of the order. Claudio Deaza on deck. He’s already had three at bats. (crowd cheering) he’s gonna have his fourth
in the fifth inning. The one-one pitch, instead
it’s a pickoff move, not in time. That was a quick move
from Brown, a good one. Ramirez did not have a big enough lead for him to get picked
off, a very aware runner. He’s so close to the bag now. Brown’s pickoffs keeping him honest. Now he takes a bit of a lead, and he goes. And the pitch is fouled off, one and two. That was a good lead by Jose Ramirez. Now it’s one and two to
Brazoban, the nine hitter. Brown looking for his
first out of the night. Now they do put him on
second, and now it’s gonna get away from Yip, and
he’s gonna go to third. So what it was, I missed it from up here. So the pitch must’ve
gotten away on one and one, and Ramirez, they’ll say stole second and goes to third on the wild pitch. Now a man on third with nobody out. Two and two to Brazoban, and we’ll see if the Tigers bring the infield in. That’s probably what
they’re talking about now. Even though their offense
is doing well tonight, five runs in four
innings, still don’t think you wanna concede outs
for runs at this point. (rock music) So it’s two and two,
and the infield is in. Let’s see if Bronx had
the contact play on, or if the runner will
hold on a ground ball. The two and two, grounder
foul down the third base line. (crowd cheering) Don’t think we’ll see a squeeze play. Two strikes, so if he bunts
foul, it’s strike three. And with the infield in,
it’s gonna be tougher to get down a very good
bunt that could score a run from third. The two-two, looper. Luk makes the catch. (crowd cheering) And Ramirez will stay at third. Very nice play by Calvin Luk. It’s a tough play
especially for an infielder who usually doesn’t do it to go back and make a play like that.
– Now batting, the second baseman, number 20, Claudio Deaza. – [David] And the infield
will stay in with one out. Claudio Deaza is O for two and
walked in his first at bat. Walked, stole a base,
and came around to score. Brown’s pitch to Deaza, a
little looper into center field, and it’s gonna be a base
hit, and it’s gonna be another run for the Broncos. And they lead 11-five. And credit Jose Ramirez. He had a very good read
on that and saw Burnette wasn’t gonna get there in time. An RBI single for Claudio Deaza. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the shortstop, number 13, Mark Ycaza. – [David] Now Mark Ycaza is up. Ycaza hit .433 this year. Brown looking for the double play ball. Runner goes, it’s fouled away. They may have a double play,
and Yip can’t make the catch. (crowd cheering) Not the first one Yip has missed tonight. – [Crowd Member] Let’s
go, Tigers, let’s go. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. – [David] Roger Mischel
not happy with Yip. O and one, ground ball to third. Espinosa throw to second,
it goes into right field. (crowd cheering) And now the Broncos are gonna have runners on the corners with one out. (crowd cheering) That could’ve been a double play ball. Espinosa to second for
one, on to first for two. Instead he throws it into right field. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the first baseman, number 29, Richard Bethea. – [David] Tigers are shooting themselves in the foot tonight. – [PA Announcer] Ladies
and gentleman, fans, a reminder to pleas
support all paticipants– – [David] Ritchie Bethea is up now. He’s one for three. – [PA Announcer] Please
refrain from using profanity during the course of the game, thank you. – [David] Flew out to center, struck out, in between he singled and
scored in the third inning. (PA announcer muttering) And now the infield is about halfway. Let’s see if they go for the double play, or if they try to come
home and cut down Deaza, the runner on third. Runner goes for second, little looper. And that’s an RBI ground out. It’s 12-five. That took a high hop,
and Luk threw to first. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, the catcher, number 15, Daniel Rojas. – [David] The decision to run Ycaza from first may have
saved them from hitting into a double play. Now an unearned run, an
RBI ground out for Bethea. 12-five in the fifth inning. Daniel Rojas, the cleanup hitter is up. Strike one. Rojas is O for three, although he reached on an error and scored back in the third. (crowd cheering) tough inning for the Tigers. They scored three runs
to cut it to 10-five. Big hole between first and second. Luk is there, throws to first, and the Tigers are out of the inning, not before the Broncos score twice, and the lead is back up to seven. It’s 12-five after 4 1/2. Coming up for the Tigers, Nicholas Yip, Hamo Deljanin, and Calvin Luk. – [PA Announcer] The Broncos pick up two runs on one hit. They leave one baserunner. At the end of 4 1/2 innings, it’s time to get up and stretch for
our fifth inning stretch with the Broncos leading
the Tigers 12 to five. (“Take Me Out to the ballgame”) ♪ Take me out to the ballgame ♪ ♪ Take me out to the crowd ♪ ♪ Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks ♪ ♪ I don’t care if I never get back ♪ ♪ Let me root, root,

batting for the Tigers, the catcher, number 18, Nicholas Yip. – [David] Tiger cleanup
hitter, Nicholas Yip is up. Been up twice, walked both times. Trying to atone for some missed pop ups. The first pitch is in
there for strike one. (crowd cheering) The O-one pitch to Yip
outside one and one. I think the two runs in the
top of the inning really hurt. The only time a team hasn’t scored was Queensborough back in
the bottom of the third. There’s been a run in
every other half inning. The one-one pitch is low, two and one. So Yip has been on twice,
and on deck is Hamo Deljanin. And he’s singled twice. Two and one, high ball
three, three and one. (rock music) Tigers leadoff man has been
on in all four innings. Yip is trying to make it five. The three-one pitch is high, ball four. (crowd cheering) And Yip walks for the third time. And now Deljanin who’s
singled twice is up. He had an RBI off the glove
of Ycaza in the first. – [PA Announcer] The designated hitter, number 15, Hamo Deljanin. – [David] And now a meeting at the mound. (rock music) (crowd cheering) And that’s gonna be it for Omar Gomez who’s three outs away from
recording the victory, but coach Dejesus saw enough, and he takes him out after four
innings, four plus innings. (“Don’t Wanna Go Home” by Jason Derulo) The Broncos lead 12-five in the fifth. (“Don’t Wanna Go Home” by Jason Derulo) ♪ One o’clock, two ‘clock,

for the Bronx Broncos is number 21, Luis Tapia. And the first batter hell
face is Hamo Deljanin who’s two for two with two singles. Nicholas Yip is on first. If he scores, that run
will be charged to Gomez. 12-five Broncos, bottom of the fifth. The first pitch is outside for ball one. (crowd cheering) Calvin Luk is on deck,
Richard Tejada behind him. (crowd clapping) Looks the runner back,
the pitch is in there for strike one. That evens up the count. (crowd cheering) Infield is pulled, not dramatically but a little to the left. Jose Ramirez pretty close
to the line at third. – [Crowd Member] Here we go. (crowd cheering) – [David] One and one is Tapia. There’s the sign, looks the runner back. Looks him back again, and steps off. (crowd cheering) Yip is on first, the pitch is fouled down the, it goes into
the net behind the dugout, behind the Bronx dugout. One and two to Deljanin. (crowd cheering) Trying to strike Deljanin
out, the one-two pitch is swung on and missed. Excellent pitch by Tapia. Now Calvin Luk is up. He’s flown out to center field twice. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the second baseman – [David] And he’s
stranded two runners twice. – [PA Announcer] number 68, Calvin Luk. – [David] And, he’s
ended the inning twice. Only way he could end the inning now is if he hits into a double play. The pitch by Tapia is
in there for strike one. (crowd cheering) See if Mischel stays aggressive. He didn’t stop running on the bases when it was 10-two. That’s in there for strike two. (crowd cheering) And Tapia gets ahead of Luk O and two. And this was something
Gomez had trouble with staying ahead of the Queensborough hitters when he had a big lead. He was falling behind. They were getting hits and
getting back in the game. The O-two pitch to Luck is
in the dirt, one and two. Nice block by Rojas. (crowd cheering) Center fielder, Rodriguez,
is kinda shallow. (crowd cheering) One and two to Calvin
Luk, the second basemen for Queensborough, and
Tapia will step off. And now he’ll have a meeting with Rojas. Wanna make sure they’re
on the same page here. Not many expected both starting pitchers to be out in the fifth inning. They want to make sure
their signs are straight. (crowd clapping) The one-two pitch, liner into right, and it’s caught, and no, it’s dropped. And the throw goes to the cutoff man, and it’s first and second with one out. (crowd cheering) And Brazoban I think
tried to throw to first before he had it. He was thinking double play
because Yip was off the bag. Instead it’s two on and one out. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the first baseman, – [David] And an E nine on Brazoban. – [PA Announcer] number
22, Richard Tejada. – [David] Don’t want to
give teams extra outs. Now Richard Tejada is up. One for one and a walk, he’s
come around to score twice. Keeping busy tonight, a walk, a single, a stolen base, and two runs scored. Strike one on the outside
corner, Tejada was looking. Look how far the first baseman is back. If he was able to get a bunt
down the first base line, the bases would be loaded. Don’t think we’ll see that. The pitch is outside for
ball one, one and one. (crowd cheering) Alex Pangourelias is on deck,
Timothy Jacquez behind him. (crowd clapping) The one-one pitch outside, two and one. Tejada looking for the signs from Mischel. Let’s see if he puts something on here. (crowd cheering) Not going, and the two-one
is inside, ball three. It’s three and one, and Tejada should get a good pitch to hit here. (crowd cheering) Bronco’s bullpen is quiet right
now as is Queensborough’s. The three-one pitch by
Tapia is low for ball four, and the bases are loaded. (crowd cheering) (rock music) The third time Tejada
reaches, second walk. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number 55, Alex Pangourelias. – [David] Now a huge at
bat, it’s Alex Pangourelias. (crowd cheering) Bases loaded, one out. Pangourelias bunted in his first at bat, in his first plate
appearance I should say. Last inning, he singled
and came around to score. Singled, stole second, and then scored on the Burnette sacrifice fly. 12-five Broncos, bases loaded. Pitch to Pangourelias is low, ball one. As Pangourelias looks for the sign, Tapia, the one-O pitch is right down the middle for strike
one, evens up the count. (crowd cheering) See if that error from Brazoban
comes back to haunt them. It would’ve been the
second out of the inning. There’s still one out. And the bases are loaded. The one-one pitch in there for strike two. Nice pitch by Tapia. Roger Mischel encouraging Pangourelias. (crowd cheering) The one-two pitch ground
ball, and it’s booted, and it’s 12-six. (crowd cheering) – [Crowd Member] Come on, Luk. So it’s saying it’s interference now, and they’re gonna send the runners back. That’s my mistake. That’s why it took the weird hop. No run, interference. (crowd cheering) Now Timothy Jacquez is up,
bases loaded and two outs. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the left fielder, number seven Timothy Jacquez. (crowd cheering) – [David] Jacquez is one for two, had an RBI single in the second, an RBI ground out last inning. In for strike one. (crowd cheering) Strike one, always the
most important pitch, and that’s outside, one and one. (crowd cheering) The one-one pitch is outside,
ball two, two and one. Tapia making things a bit interesting. And if he could get a
hit up the middle here, it would be two runs. They’re really playing him to pull. The two-one pitch is high, ball three. Three and one, and he’s one pitch away from walking in a run. Does not want to walk him, and so Jacquez should get a very good pitch
to hit on three and one, and he takes. And the count goes full. Three balls, two strikes, two outs, the merry-go-round will be in motion with the bases loaded. (crowd cheering) Runners go, the pitch
is high, and the Tigers make it 12-six. (crowd cheering) Very good, patient at bat, 12-six now. (“Baba O’Reily” by The Who) Nicholas Yip scores. For his third walk,
– Now batting, the center fielder, number 16,
– he has his first run. – [PA Announcer] Lebro Burnette. – [David] Now Lebro Burnette
is up with the bases loaded. (“Baba O’Reily” by The Who) Now the Broncos are gonna
have a meeting at the mound (“Baba O’Reily” by The Who) as one swing could put the
Tigers right back in this. (“Baba O’Reily” by The Who) (rock music) And there’s a change made by the Broncos. We’ll sort it all out in a second. Broncos 12 runs on 12 hits, one error. Tigers six runs, eight hits, two errors, and they’re threatening. Bases loaded in the bottom of the fifth. (rock music) (singing in a foreign language) – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please. Now pitching for the Broncos,
number 19, Rowin Rodriguez. (rock music) Ladies and gentlemen,
your attention please. Now playing in center
field for the Broncos, number five, Felix Torres. (crowd cheering) – [David] So a double
switch and strike one, get it all sorted out. Dejesus makes a double switch. Rowin Rodriguez comes in
from center field to pitch. And now Felix Torres is
the new center fielder. Strike two. (crowd cheering) Bases loaded, two outs. Rodriguez not wasting any time. Big hole up the middle. The O-two to Burnette was tipped, and Burnette just stays alive. Half of the Broncos were
running off the field, thought it might be strike three. Tigers trail 12-six, bases
loaded, fifth inning, two outs. Rodriguez, Burnette fouls it off. (crowd cheering) So Rowin Rodriguez who started
the game in center field, had some nice plays, is now pitching. And the O-two is lined into center. Torres, it falls in front of him. The Tigers make it 12-eight. Burnette with a two run, two strike, two out single, 12-eight. (crowd cheering) (electronic rock music) Now runners on the corners
for Jeinson Espinosa. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the third baseman, Jeinson Espinosa. – [David] So Rodriguez who got two strikes on Burnette in about eight seconds ends up giving up a two run single. Tigers have scored six runs
in the last two innings, and they still have two on for Espinosa, and if he gets on, Thomas
Grillo will represent the tying run. Now he’s facing a right handed hitter, and that pitch is high. It’s one and O. (crowd cheering) So Luis Tapia could only
go 2/3 of an inning. Rodriguez is the third
pitcher they’re using in this inning, and that’s
in there for strike one. – [Crowd Member] It’s three and two. I didn’t see it. (crowd cheering) – [David] One and one to Espinosa. Infield is straightaway. The pitch is low, ball two, two and one. (crowd clapping) What a wild game, 12-eight
in the fifth inning. And two and one on Espinosa. Make it two and two,
got the inside corner, and now deuces are wild. Two balls, two strikes, two outs, two on, number two at the plate. Rodriguez gets the sign
from Rojas, delivers. And Espinosa reaches out
to stay alive, nice job. And they’ll do it again. The infield regular
depth, so is the outfield. Everybody’s straightaway on two and two. (crowd cheering) Throw goes to first and doesn’t get him. – [Crowd Member] Hey, let’s go! (crowd cheering) – [David] Two-two pitch, swing and a miss. (rock music) Espinosa was fooled badly on that one, and the Tigers are retired,
but not before they score three in the fifth. After five innings, it’s the Broncos 12 and the Tigers eight. (“Take Me Out to the Ballgame”) ♪ Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks ♪ ♪ I don’t care if I never get back ♪ ♪ Let me root, root,
root for the home team ♪ ♪ It they don’t win, it’s a shame ♪ ♪ Take me out to the crowd ♪ ♪ Buy me some peanuts ♪ ♪ Well it’s one, two, three strikes ♪ ♪ Two, three strikes your out ♪ ♪ At the old ballgame ♪ (Italian music) – [Crowd Member] Pick it up. – [PA Announcer] Now batting,
number 19, Rowin Rodriguez. (crowd cheering) – [David] One pitch, one
out as Rodriguez is retired. Rodriguez started the
game in center field, is now pitching. – [PA Announcer] The center fielder, number five, Felix Torres. – [David] Now the new center fielder has taken over for Edwin Ramirez, so they lose the DH which is always funny when they double switch
involving the pitcher. The pitch from Brown is
in the dirt, one and O. So now it’s Rodriguez
pitching and hitting fifth, and Torres in center field hitting sixth. And Torres is ahead in
the count two and O. The infield is straightaway. The outfield, both
center fielders have been shaded slighting towards left. The two-O is right down
the middle, two and one. Brown would really like to hold them here. Tigers only trail by four
after being down 10-two early in the game. That’s in there for
strike two, two and two. (crowd cheering) The two-two pitch is low,
ball three, three and two. To show you how bad
Dejesus wanted Rodriguez as a pitcher, he double
switched out of the game Edwin Ramirez, the DH who
had been three for three, three singles, two RBI, three runs scored. The three-two pitch is
grounded to third foul. That is some double switch, and for Gomez, he came out to start the fifth inning. He walked Yip, was taken out. Tapia pitched 2/3 of an
inning, but then Dejesus wanted the lefty-lefty
matchup of Rodriguez-Burnette, and then Burnette had a two run single. Ground ball to third. This one is fair. Espinosa, throw to first is in time. (crowd cheering) That will bring up Jonathan Suarez. Suarez one for two with a sacrifice bunt. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number 12, Jonathan Suarez. (crowd cheering) – [David] Broncos have
scored in every inning until this point as that pitch
in in the dirt, one and O. Two in the first, one in the second, six in the third, one in the
fourth, two in the fifth. But the first two were
retired here in the sixth. Brown looking for a
one, two, three inning. That pitch is in there. It evens up the count at one and one. (crowd cheering) Check swing, it’s one and two. Not a pitch Suarez really
wanted to swing at, but he did and weakly fouled it off. And now it’s one and two. Brown looking to put away Suarez. Ground ball, it’s gonna be Grillo. Throw to first, not in time. Great hustle by Suarez, beats out an infield single to
keep the inning alive. And now the third baseman
Jose Ramirez comes up. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the third baseman, number 18, Jose Ramirez. – [David] Ramirez is one
for two, had an RBI single in the third, came around to score. He walked in the fifth
and came around to score. He was running quite a bit, a walk, and then he stole second, went to third on a wild pitch, and came
home on a Deaza single as that pickoff throw is not in time. (crowd cheering) Two outs, top of the sixth,
Jonathan Suarez on first, Jose Ramirez at the plate
facing Matthew Brown. And Brown’s first pitch, runner goes, swing and a miss, throw to second, and nobody could come up with it. And Matthew Brown jumped in the air. He wanted that one. Been some sloppy play
by the Tigers tonight, sloppy plays by both teams. And I guess that will be a stolen base, but good throw by Yip. If they could’ve gotten the glove on it, probably would’ve been
out, and now a runner is in scoring position. The O-one pitch is fouled off, O and two. Again, Matt Brown is one strike away from getting out of the inning and holding the Broncos scoreless for the first time tonight. Crioni Brazoban is on
deck should it get to him. Brown gets the sign and delivers,
and the pitch is bounced, one and two. – [Crowd Member] Come on, Matty. You can do this, kid, you got it. – [Crowd Member] Right
here, come on, Matty. – [Crowd Member] Come on,
Matty, you can do this. – [David] A lot of these pitchers tonight have gotten two strikes on a hitter, and then they bounce one, and the hitter is right back in the at bat. Creeping towards second, now they move back into position. The one-two pitch swing and a miss. Nice bitch by Brown as
Ramirez goes down swinging. The Broncos are held scoreless on a hit. After 5 1/2, it’s 12-eight, and the heart of the order coming up for the Tigers, Grillo, Yip, and Deljanin. – [PA Announcer] 5 1/2
innings, it’s the Broncos 12, and the Tigers eight. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time for out out of town scoreboard. Over in the Major League,
the Cleveland Indians leading over the Philadelphia
Phillies 14 to two in the bottom of the eighth. The Atlanta Braves lead
the Washington Nationals eight to one in the bottom of the eight. The New York Yankees
lead the Houston Astros four to nothing, they’re in
the seventh inning stretch. It’s the bottom of the
ninth down in Miami. The Mets are clinging
to a one-nothing lead. Toronto leads the Red Sox, six-four at the top of the seventh. San Diego’s leading Chicago
five-nothing in the fifth. Middle of the eighth inning it’s the Tigers six, the Twins one. In Milwaukee, the Brewers
are leading the Pirates four to three in the bottom of the fourth. White Sox leading Texas two
to nothing in the fourth. Cincinnati leads Saint
Louis one to nothing middle of the fifth. Tampa’s leading Kansas City two nothing middle of the fifth, and later on tonight, it’ll be the Giants and the Diamondbacks as well as the Angels and the A’s, and the Rockies and the Dodgers. Seattle and Baltimore will
do battle at 10:10 tonight. And that is your out of town scoreboard brought to you by MCU, the
Municipal Credit Union, a proud sponsor of the
CUNY Athletic Conference. (salsa music) Now batting, the shortstop,
number nine, Thomas Grillo. (salsa music) (crowd cheering) – [David] First pitch of the sixth is in there for strike one. Thomas Grillo is O for
three, two fly outs to center and a pop up to second base. The O-one pitch, off-speed pitch is high and outside, evens
up the count at one and one. (crowd cheering) Rodriguez’s pitch misses. It’s two and one. Gotta be a little tough for
Rodriguez in center field, and you have to come in and pitch. Hot smash, through the hole, base hit. A leadoff single for Thomas Grillo, his first hit of the
game, and a leadoff single for the Tigers as Nicholas Yip comes up. And Yip has been up three times and walked all three times. And Roger Mischel will
take that right now. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, the catcher, number 18, Nicholas Yip. – [David] Getting the signs. Broncos lead the Tigers
12-eight bottom of the sixth. Man on first, nobody out. The pitch misses, one and O. (crowd cheering) How do you like Yip’s night? He missed two pop ups behind the plate, and he’s walked three times. He scored once last inning
when he led off with the walk. (crowd cheering) One and O to Yip right now. Rodriguez’s pitch is
in there, one and one. Rodriguez gets the sign from Rojas, throw to first is not in time. Grillo goes back in safely. (crowd cheering) Not going, one and two. Rodriguez, a quicker worker than Gomez and Tapia especially Gomez. He was a bit deliberate on the mound. (crowd cheering) The one-two pitch, swing and a miss. Nice pitch by Rodriguez
as Yip goes down swinging. And now Hamo Deljanin is up. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] Now batting,
the designated hitter, number 15, Hamo Deljanin. – [David] Deljanin the
DH is two for three, two singles and a strikeout. Had an RBI single back in the first. Grillo goes back in standing. (crowd cheering) Grillo takes his lead. Pitch hit him. And now it’s two on and one out. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] The second baseman number 68, Calvin Luk.
– Deljanin gives up his body to get on base.
– Number 68. – [David] Calvin Luk is up now. Flew out twice to center and then reached on an error by the right fielder Brazoban last inning and came around to score. One more Tiger runner, and they’ll have the tying run up at the plate. Would’ve been hard to believe
when they were down 10-two. The pitch is in there for strike one. Rodriguez gets ahead of Luk O and one. (crowd cheering) Grillo on second, Deljanin on first. The O-one pitch high and away one and one. (crowd cheering) Rodriguez looking for a double play ball, a pitcher’s best friend. A double play here would get the Broncos out of trouble and into
the seventh inning. The one-one is fouled away. (crowd cheering) Infield back, a bit of a
hole between third and short. Jose Ramirez has been
close to that line at third for most of the game. Time called. (crowd cheering) – [Crowd Member] Come
on, Calvin, let’s go. – [Crowd Member] Come on, Calvin. (crowd cheering) – [David] Two on, one
out, the one-two pitch from Rodriguez is popped up. Going out for it, and it
will go into the crowd. Luk stays alive at one and two. (crowd cheering) Calvin Luk at second base tonight, also does some pitching himself. He won a CUNY game earlier
this year against BMCC. Gave up four earned runs in five innings as Queensborough beat the Panthers 11-six. The one-two pitch, Luk
lays off, two and two. Richard Tejada is on deck. (crowd cheering) Looks in at the sign. Rodriguez is two-two is high,
ball three, three and two. One pitch away from loading the bases. (crowd cheering) Grillo on second, Deljanin on first. See if there’s any
chance they would be off. Not going, and that’s fouled away. (crowd cheering) (organ music) Luk not even looking to Mischel for signs, and Mischel gives none. This is just gonna be
straightaway hitting. The payoff pitch from Rodriguez. Runners do go, and there’s
a fly ball to right, and it’s caught. The runners retreat. (crowd cheering) – [Crowd Member] Good hustle. – [David] And now two on
and two out for Tejada. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, – [David] And that was funny, there was nothing put on from Mischel. – [PA Announcer] the
first basemen, number 22, Richard Tejada.
– And both runners went. So actually the sign for them to go was no sign at all. Richard Tejada has reached
base all three times he’s been up, two walks and a single. He scored twice and stole a base. That pitch is high one and O. (crowd cheering) (crowd clapping) Rodriguez gets the sing from Rojas. Sets and delivers, one and one. Infield is straightaway,
playing the lines a bit. Middle infielders are straightaway, and that’s fouled off one and two. Rodriguez one strike away
from working out of trouble. (crowd cheering) (crowd clapping) The outfield behind
Rodriguez is straightaway. Now time called, and now Rojas will go out to talk to Rodriguez. Wanting to make sure he’s gonna throw a pitch everybody can agree on. This is not the time for miscommunication. – [PA Announcer] The last time
the Indians won a pennant. Top of the sixth and rookie sensation, Tommy Cora will pitch out. One on and two men out
the right fielder’s up. (muttering) (crowd clapping) – [David] Two on and two outs,
one ball and two strikes. Tejada trying to stay
alive, the one-two is high, two and two. (crowd cheering) One good pitch from Rodriguez will get him out of the inning. Two balls, two strikes, two outs, two on, number 22 at the plate. Ground ball through the hole, base hit. Mischel is sending the runner
home, and he will score. And it’s 12-nine. Thomas Grillo scores. The Tigers will send the
tying run to the plate. Clutch hitting by Tejada
with the RBI single. And it’s Alex Pangourelias who will be up as the tying run. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number 55, Alex Pangourelias. (rock music) – [David] Pangourelias not a power hitter. First pitch is outside,
ball one, one and O. (crowd cheering) The tying run is at the plate. Down the middle, one and one. It was 10-two in the fourth inning. And Queensborough, not only
have they gotten back in it, they’ve got back in it
fast, three in the fourth, three in the fifth. The one-one pitch is outside, two and one. Pangourelias ahead in the count. Deljanin on second, Tejada on first. (crowd cheering) And now it’s three and one. Should get a good pitch to hit here. (crowd cheering) He singled back in the fourth inning. The three-one pitch, he
was taking all the way. Now the count is full. The runners will go, that’ll
give ’em a head start. So any hit should score them now as long as it makes it out of the infield. (crowd cheering) Go, and Rodriguez looking the runners back just to keep ’em honest. That could count if they
wait an extra second to take off, and he does it again. It doesn’t quite have the same effect when neither the shortstop
or the second baseman go over to cover. The three-two pitch, little
looper into right, base hit. One run will score, here comes another. It’s 12-11, 12-11 in the sixth. (crowd cheering) Pangourelias with a two
out, two strike hit. (crowd cheering) And the head start made
all the difference. How many times you see a guy score from first on a single? (crowd cheering) So Deljanin scores, and
Tejada with his head start had a lot of speed. Now it’s 12-11. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the left fielder, number seven, Timothy Jacquez. – [David] Three in the
fourth, three in the fifth, three in the sixth, and now the Tigers who were down by eight in the fourth only trail 12-11. (crowd cheering) Jacquez is up. He’s driven in a run
each of the three times he’s been up, and he tries to bunt his way on, and it’s foul. Not a bad idea. So he singled in a run in
the second, RBI ground out in the fourth. (crowd cheering) Not have driven in a run the last time. And now the runner goes to second, the throw goes into center field. Pangourelias going to third. The Tigers are 90 feet
away from tying the game. (crowd cheering) The count is O and two to Jacquez. (crowd cheering) And look how far over Deaza
is over at second base. Extreme pull. Outfield shifted to the right as well. Rodriguez, the O-two pitch. And, a balk, and the game is tied at 12. The Tigers come from eight
runs down to tie the game. Rodriguez balks in the tying run. (crowd cheering) 12-12 in the sixth. The Tigers explode for 10 runs
in the last three innings. (crowd cheering) The O-two pitch is outside, one and two. (crowd cheering) One and two to Timothy
Jacquez got him looking. The Broncos get out of the inning, not before the Tigers tie the game at 12. They score four times in the inning. After six innings, each
team has a dozen runs. – [PA Announcer] For
the Tigers, they pick up four runs on three hits. There’s nobody left on. And at the end of six innings of play, we are all knotted up at 12. (crowd cheering) (PA announcer mumbling) – [PA Announcer] Ground
ball to the shortstop. Oh, through the legs. (muttering) (rock music) (PA announcer muttering) (crowd cheering) ♪ Show you the way, whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Let me hear you say ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ ♪ Whoop there it is ♪ (PA announcer muttering) (“Take Me Out to the Ballgame”) ♪ Take me out to the ballgame ♪ ♪ Take me out to the crowd ♪ ♪ Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks ♪ ♪ I don’t care if I never get back ♪ ♪ Let me root, root,

strikes, you’re out ♪ – [David] I guess there’s gonna be a change of some kind on the field. ♪ At the ballgame. ♪ – [David] Umpires having a
talk by the Queensborough dugout, one of ’em was. (Italian music) So Matthew Brown will be
back out for the seventh. Broncos, 12 runs, 13 hits, two errors. Tigers, 12 runs, 12 hits, two errors. (Italian music) CUNY community college baseball, you’re never really out
of it even when you’re down by eight in the fourth inning of the CUNY championship game. (Italian music) And Matthew Brown is back out
for his third inning of work. Gave up two in the fifth, and then pitched well in the sixth. (Italian music) (Latin music) – [David] So Matthew Brown with an injury of some kind, and he’s getting as many warmup tosses as he needs. Report says a cut on his hand. (Latin music) (crowd clapping) (Latin music) (crowd cheering) (Latin music) (crowd member muttering) (Latin music) – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number 16, Crioni Brazoban. (crowd cheering) – [David] Brown’s first
pitch of the seventh inning is in there for strike one. Last time this game
was tied was in the top of the first inning, the second batter of the game gave the Broncos the lead. Tigers have never led as the count is one and one on Crioni Brazoban. (crowd cheering) Infield and outfield straightaway. The one-one pitch spikes that one. It’s two and one. (crowd cheering) And then the top of the
order will follow Brazoban, Deaza, Ycaza, if anybody gets on Bethea. Two and one and the pitch from Brown is grounded, Grillo backhands
it, throw to first in time. What a nice play by Thomas Grillo. And Brazoban is retired
to begin the seventh. Claudio Deaza is up now. One for three with a
walk and a run scored, two runs scored, excuse me. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the second baseman, number 20, Claudio Deaza. (crowd cheering) – [David] Pitch misses, one and O as Brown falls behind
Deaza, the fourth Bronco who was named CUNY Player of the Week. He was named for April
15th through the 21st as the one-O pitch is outside
for ball two, two and O. He had a week where he was 14 for 25, knocked in seven runs and scored 13 times. 13 runs scored in a week,
and he stole three bases. The two-O pitch is bounced,
and it’s three and O. Brown a bit wild. No action in the bullpen. (crowd cheering) Tigers have a few position
players who can pitch, Burnette, Pangourelias, Luk. See if Deaza’s swinging three and O. He’s not. It’s high and inside. And the one out walk is issued to Deaza. (crowd cheering) Mark Ycaza up now, one on and one out. – [PA Announcer] The shortstop,
number 13, Mark Ycaza. (crowd cheering) – [David] Big hole
between third and short. Espinosa at the hot corner. Grillo who made the nice play earlier in the inning at short. Throw to first, Deaza gets back. – [Crowd Member] Let’s go. – [David] Outfield
straightaway although if he pulls one down the left field line, that’s gonna be trouble for Queensborough. First pitch of the at bat, ground ball, takes a bad hop and
goes into the outfield, and there are two Broncos on. It hit that lip of the grass and took a tough hop for Espinosa
possible double play turns into two on for the Broncos.
– The first baseman, number 29, Richard Bethea. – [David] And I imagine
they would score that a hit. Don’t know anybody except Brooks Robinson or Mike Schmidt who could make that play. Single for Ycaza two on and one out. Ritchie Bethea taps one foul. Bethea had an RBI ground
out back in the fifth. (crowd cheering) Drove in the most Broncos
of anybody on the team. Brown ahead of him O and one, the pitch ground ball to second. Luk flips to short for one,
onto first, double play. (crowd cheering) Four, six, three double play, and Brown works out of the jam. Seventh inning stretch time. The teams are still tied at 12. (rock music) – [PA Announcer] The
Broncos, no runs on one hit. They leave one. – [David] That was the best defensive play Queensborough turned all night. – [PA Announcer] We are all tied at 12. – [David] Three innings
of sloppy fielding, Luk to Grillo to Tejada, and they’ll have the top of the order in the seventh, Lebro Burnette, Jeinson
Espinosa, and Thomas Grillo try to give the Tigers their

batting for the Tigers, the center fielder,
number 16, Lebro Burnette. (crowd cheering) – [David] Burnette leading off the seventh against Rodriguez, first pitch
is in there for a strike. Burnette was the first
batter that Rodriguez faced in the fifth. Rodriguez came in from center field, threw two quick strikes. Burnette laced a two run single. And again, it’s O and two. Rodriguez ahead of Burnette. (crowd cheering) Defense straightaway, O
and two, ground ball foul. (rock music) Tigers looking for their
first lead of the game. Burnette hit four home runs this year. A looper into left, a nice
catch is made, Jonathan Suarez. – [PA Announcer] The
third baseman, number two, Jeinson Espinosa. – [David] Now Jeinson Espinosa’s up. (crowd cheering) Different infield than last year. Remember last year’s title game, Espinosa was at short. It was Gabriel Maldonado
at the hot corner. And Espinosa looks at strike one. The O-one pitch from
Rodriguez is fouled away. Espinosa was out in front of that one. Was fooled, and now it’s O and two. Rodriguez doing a good job getting ahead of these hitter though
he gave up the lead. (crowd cheering) And that’s swung on and missed, and then it gets away from the catcher, and Espinosa goes to first. (crowd cheering) Reaches first on a strikeout. (crowd cheering) And now Thomas Grillo is up. – [PA Announcer] The shortstop,
number nine, Thomas Grillo. (crowd cheering) – [Crowd Members] Here
we go, Tommy, here we go. – [David] Remember the
Tigers were down 12-eight heading into the last
inning, and he led off with a single, Grillo did. Now Espinosa on first, Tigers looking for their first lead of the game. Rodriguez throws to first. Espinosa goes back in standing up. Grillo one for four,
flied out to center twice, popped up to second, singled and scored in his last at bat. (crowd cheering) Pitch is high one and O. (crowd cheering) Rodriguez gets the sign,
Espinosa on first takes his lead, not going. And the pitch is in there for strike one, evens up the count. One on, one out, Nicholas Yip is on deck. (crowd clapping) And time is called momentarily. (crowd clapping) The pitch is high, two and one. It’d be interesting if Mischel wants to put on a hit and run, and typically, two and one is the good hit and run count especially when there’s one out. (crowd cheering) Not going, and it’s high three and one. Grillo should look for
a pitch to hit here. Don’t think Rodriguez
will want to walk him. At the same time, he can’t just throw a fat pitch right down the middle. And that’s fouled away
into the parking lot. And now it’s three and two. Interesting decision
for Mischel if he wants to put the runner in motion. Three and two to Thomas
Grillo, one on and one out. Not going, little fister, running out, the catch cannot be
made, two on and one out. It falls right in between
Deaza and Brazoban. Espinosa to second and Grillo on first. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, the catcher, number 18, Nicholas Yip. – [David] Now Nicholas Yip who’s O for one with three walks, and then he struck out in the last inning. He scored a run back in the fifth. Espinosa on second, Grillo on first. Espinosa with good speed. (crowd cheering) First pitch of the at bat from Rodriguez is in there for strike one. (crowd cheering) (crowd clapping) Deaza creeping towards second in case there’s a pickoff throw, there’s not. The pitch is in there for strike two. (crowd cheering) Yip looks down at Mischel for the signs. Rodriguez delivers. (crowd cheering) And it’s a fair ball. The Tigers are gonna take the lead for the first time tonight. 13-12, throw just comes
back in, make it 14-12. The Tigers lead. (crowd cheering) A two strike, two run
triple for Nicholas Yip. (rock music) (crowd cheering) The Tigers who trailed
10-two in the fourth inning. – [PA Announcer] Now batting,
the designated hitter, number 15, Hamo Deljanin.
– Lead 14-12 in the bottom of the seventh. (crowd cheering) And now the Bronx infield is in. They will not trade a run for an out. See if Mischel puts on the contact play. First pitch of the at bat
is outside, one and O. Anything an infielder can get
to, the throw is going home unless Yip stays at third of course. (crowd cheering) The one-O pitch misses outside, two and O. Deljanin has been on base three times, twice singled, once was hit by a pitch. The two-O from Rodriguez,
high ball three, three and O. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Tigers, let’s go. Let’s go, Tigers, let’s go. – [David] See if Mischel
would give Deljanin the green light on three and O. Tough to do when you have
a pitcher who’s been wild. The three-O, it hits Deljanin. He’s hit for the second time in a row. And I believe that’s
gonna be it for Rodriguez as Dejesus makes the long, slow walk out to the mound. (“Gangnam Style” by Psy) So Rodriguez who started the game in center field came in to
pitch in the fifth inning. His team was up 12-six,
and when he walks off the mound, his team trails 14-12. (“Gangnam Style” by Psy) This could be revenge for
the men’s basketball final from two months ago when the Broncos beat the Tigers 83-68 to
complete their three-peat. Bronx always seems to face Queensborough in the CUNY title baseball game, never a game as wild as this one though. There have been some comebacks,
some high scoring games, but this is extreme. 14 runs, 14 hits, two errors,
12 runs, 14 hits, two errors and still not over. And how ’bout some credit to Matthew Brown who will be overlooked when
there’re 26 combined runs so far, but he came in to
pitch the fifth inning, gave up two runs, and then shut the door in the sixth and seventh. (“Gangnam Style” by Psy) What a wild game and still not over. Now first and third, Calvin Luk is up. He’s flied out three times today. So it’s first and third. You wonder two things, one, would Mischel think about putting a squeeze on? And then secondly, how is
Bronx gonna play the infield? Do you play it halfway so you could have the option to go for the double play or to get the runner at home? (“Gangnam Style” by Psy) So the Broncos led two-one after one, three-two after two, nine-two after three, 10-two after 3 1/2, then it was 10-five, 12-five, 12-eight, 12-12, and now 14-12. Nicholas Yip with the triple just fair inside the first base line to give the Tigers the lead and
score Jeinson Espinosa and Thomas Grillo. And this pitcher in
warmups has been very wild. He’s been bouncing everything. And there’s not much Daniel
Rojas can do about it. If you’re watching these warmups, a lot of these pitches
are going to the screen. (“Gangnam Style” by Psy) So Calvin Luk up now, O for four, reached on an error in the fifth
and came around to score. Flew out to center twice,
once flew out to right. Infield halfway. ♪ Stay away from me if you’re contagious ♪ ♪ ‘Cause I’m a winner,

from the new pitcher, and it’s high for ball one. And actually when I said Rojas. – [PA Announcer] 68, Calvin
Luk takes one for the Tigers. – [David] So it’s actually
Daniel Rojas pitching now. (crowd cheering) The one-O pitch to Luk
misses, ball two, two and O. A lot of changes. Rowin Rodriguez is back in center field. Felix Torres moves from
Center field to right. (crowd clapping) Two and O, and it’s dropped, and the runner is gonna go to second. It’s Deljanin. Now the Tigers have two
in scoring position. Three and O, second and third. (crowd clapping) – [Umpire] Strike. – [David] Three and one
now, so it’s Daniel Rojas pitching now moving
from catcher to pitcher. (crowd cheering) The new, get to it after this pitch, the three-one to Luk as the
infield is in, high chopper, and he’s caught in between,
and they’re gonna have him. So it’s still second and
third because while Yip was caught in the run down, Luk who hit the high chopper went
all the way to second, and Deljanin goes to third. Now it’s second and third, two outs. That could come back to hurt Queensborough if they don’t add on any more runs having second and third, one out. And Yip was kinda caught halfway if he should go or not. I mean once he was halfway down the line, he might as well have come home. (crowd cheering) Pitch to Tejada is in
there for strike one. Tejada has been on four
times, twice walked and twice singled. (crowd clapping) The O-one misses, one and one. – [PA Announcer] The change on the field, catching now for the Broncos
is number 17, Joan Rosado. – [David] And Joan Rosado
is the new catcher. So Rojas moves from catcher to pitcher, and Rosado is the new catcher. The one-one pitch from Rojas to Tejada, ground ball through the hole, base hit. One run will score, and
the second holds up. And good running by Tejada
who takes second base, 15-12 on the RBI single by Richard Tejada. Deljanin comes in to score. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] The
right fielder, number 55, Alex Pangourelias. – [David] Alex Pangourelias now is up. Two in scoring position, two outs. And the pitch from Rojas is
low, ball one, one and O. (crowd cheering) Queensborough has scored
13 of the last 15 runs and scored a 10-two
deficit into a 15-12 lead. That’s high and outside,
and it’s two and O to Pangourelias with
Timothy Jacquez on deck. (crowd cheering) Pangourelias with a big two run single the last time he was up. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Pango, let’s go. – [David] Little looper to tie the game, the two-O pitch, excuse
me to make it 12-11. (crowd cheering) And then he scored on
a balk from Rodriguez. So his single cut it
from 12-nine to 12-11, and he scored the tying run. Three and O to Pangourelias.
– Let’s go, Pango, Let’s go. – [David] And that’s in there
for strike one, three and one. Broncos trying to figure
out what hit them. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Pango, Let’s go. Let’s go, Pango, let’s go. – [David] Rojas, the
three-one pitch is in there for strike two. Pangourelias very patient at the plate. And now a full count. (crowd cheering) And the payoff pitch to Pangourelias. Fly ball to center, Rodriguez is under it and makes the catch. The Tigers are retired but
not before they take the lead, their first of the night. They lead 15-12 after seven
innings and are six outs away from the CUNY title.
– For the Tigers, three runs on three hits. They leave two base runners. At the end of seven complete innings, the Tigers lead the Broncos 15 to 12. (crowd cheering) (“My Own Worst Enemy” by Lit) ♪ Can we forget about the

(crowd cheering) – [David] First pitch of the eighth inning is inside for ball one. And up is Daniel Rojas
who started the game behind the backstop. (crowd cheering) Now he’s pitching. The one-O pitch from
Brown is low, two and O. Rojas, O for four although he reached on an error in the third
and came around to score. See if he takes here even ahead two and O. And he does, it’s two and one because the Broncos need runners
even when they’re ahead in the count, they may not
look to attack too much. The two-one, ground ball, Grillo is there. Throw to first in time, and that will bring up Rowin Rodriguez
who is two for four with two singles and two runs scored. (crowd cheering) Started the game in center field. – [PA Announcer] The
center fielder, number 19, Rowin Rodriguez.
– And now he’s back in center field, but he may be remembered for his pitching when he was up 12-six in the fifth inning and left the game down 14-12. And that’s in there for a strike. And speaking of pitchers,
how ’bout Matthew Brown who gave up two runs in the fifth. And part of that had to do with an error. The O-one, and then
didn’t give up any runs in the sixth or seventh
and kept the Broncos right where they needed
to be as Queensborough mounted their comeback. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, let’s go, let’s go. – [David] Now is he gonna
pitch when he has the lead? The one-one laced down
the left field line foul, and it’s one and two. (crowd cheering) Brown has struck out one Bronco, and that was Jose Ramirez, the one victim back in the sixth. The one-two pitch, up
the middle, base hit. Nice piece of two strike
hitting by Rowin Rodriguez who starts a little one out rally. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] The right fielder, number five, Felix Torres. – [David] Now number five, Felix Torres who didn’t even start this game, then went into center
field, and then moved over to right field is now at the plate. Brown looks at the runner, the pitch in there for strike one. O and one, defense
normal depth everywhere. Just misses, one and
one, evens up the count. Jonathan Suarez is on deck,
Jose Ramirez behind him. 15-12, Queensborough leads
the Bronx, top of the eighth. (crowd cheering) Brown stepped off. (crowd cheering) Brown looks in at Yip for the signs, gives a look to the runner. The one-one pitch swing and a miss. (crowd cheering) One strike away from sending Torres back to the dugout. It’s interesting when
they double switched out Edwin Ramirez from the game. He was three for three. The one-two high and
inside, and it evens up the count at two and two. (crowd cheering) It happened with two
outs in the fifth inning, Rodriguez went from
center fielder to pitcher. Torres went into center
field to replace the DH. Runner goes, and the pitch is fouled off into the parking lot. (rock music) So that’s two position
players coach Dejesus has used tonight on the mound,
the first Rowin Rodriguez, and then he used Daniel Rojas who started the game at catcher last inning. Two and two to Torres,
Brown looks in at the sign. Not going, and it’s in
there for strike three. (crowd cheering) Torres goes down looking, and that brings up Jonathan Suarez with
two outs in the eighth. (crowd cheering) Suarez two for three with a
sacrifice back in the second. Pitch is high for ball one. It’s funny in the third he was bunting on a squeeze play, and he actually beat it out of an infield hit. Then he singled in the
sixth inning with two outs, stole a base, but was stranded on second. The one-O pitch from Brown
is in for strike one. Rodriguez bluffed going to second. Jose Ramirez on deck would represent the potential tying run. The one-one pitch from Brown
is in there for strike two. (crowd cheering) One pitch away from sending
down the Broncos in the eighth. Broncos looking for some two out magic. The one-two pitch popped
up and fouled back, coming back here. Lands a few rows in front
of me in the press box. (crowd cheering) So they’ll do it again on one and two. Brown’s pitch chopped slowly towards the Queensborough dugout as
Suarez spoils another pitch. (crowd cheering) Not a beautiful swing on that one but does enough to stay alive, and that’s the important thing. One and two, minuscule lead
for Rodriguez off first. There’s a pitch inside, two and two. Suarez had to back out of the way. Infield is kind of shaded the other way. Shortstop Grillo is a bit closer to the second base bag. There’s a sizeable hole
between third and short enough for a ball to get through. Espinosa, it eats him up. That’ll be an error. The Broncos will send up the tying run here in the eighth. (crowd cheering) – [Crowd Member] Come on, baby. – [David] New life for the Broncos. Brown made a good enough pitch, but the ball ate up Espinosa. – [Crowd Member] Come on, baby. – [David] It’s Jose Ramirez who scored twice in this game. Brown’s pitch hit him, and the bases are full of Broncos. (crowd cheering) It’ll be the ninth spot in the order. Brown running into some trouble now. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, the catcher, number 17, Joan Rosado. – [David] And it’s Joan Rosado who was double switched into the game
in the top of this inning because Daniel Rojas, the
catcher, became the pitcher, and they needed a new catcher. Rosado went in, and now he finds himself in the most important moment of the game. Bases loaded, two outs,
Broncos down by three. Brown’s first pitch is
in the dirt, one and O. Claudio Deaza if Rosado
should get on in any way. One and O, Brown gets the sign. Infield normal depth. – [Crowd Member] Let’s go. – [David] And that
pitch is low, two and O. Brown running into a bit of trouble. And good job by Yip to go out to the mound and settle his pitcher down. (orchestral music) Good job by the Queensborough staff. Coach goes out now. (orchestral music) Potential tying run is on first. (rock music) The potential go ahead
run is at the plate. Queensborough was not
in a no doubles defense. Sometimes, you think
push ’em all the way back so that you keep
everything in front of you. (rap music) It’s two and O, Joan
Rosado ahead of Matt Brown. Bases loaded, two out in the eighth. (rap music) (crowd cheering) Brown gets the sign from Yip, two-O pitch in there for strike one,
right down the middle. And after seeing two
pitches not even close, Rosado was taking all the
way even ahead two and O. The two-one pitch from Brown is inside, and it hit ’em, and it’s 15-13. Brown losing his control. Mischel wondering if
he should take him out. Brown losing it with
two outs as that bad hop slash mistake by Espinosa at third that kept the inning alive.
– Now batting, the second baseman,
number 20, Claudio Deaza. – [David] Claudio Deaza up now. Of all the guys you’d want
up if you’re the Bronx, a guy who hits .370 and
had 11 extra base hits, an on base percentage
of over .500 in CUNY. Tying run on second,
go ahead run on first. (crowd cheering) Up the middle, and it’s stopped, and a great play. Great play by Calvin
Luk who goes to Grillo to get out of it. Bronx was so close to tying the game, it almost go through, but it didn’t. After 7 1/2, Tigers 15, Broncos 13. – [PA Announcer] So the
Broncos, they pick up one run on two hits. They leave three. At the end of 7 1/2, it’s the Tigers 15 and the Broncos 13. (rock music) – [David] Queensborough will look to add some insurance. Jacquez, Burnette, Espinosa
due up in the eighth. They scored 13 runs in
their last four at bats. Bronx gotta hold ’em
right here if they want to come back in the ninth.

two due up for the Tigers. Timothy Jacquez leading off the inning. Bottom of the eighth,
Bronx Broncos 13 runs, 16 hits, two errors. Queensborough 15, 15, and two. Tigers lead by two
looking to make it more. Jacquez takes the first
pitch for a ball, one and O. (crowd cheering) One-O pitch is inside, two and O. Jacquez had to back up out of the way. Queensborough looking for a
few insurance runs this inning. The way this game has
gone about three or four would be nice. (crowd cheering) Two and O, Rojas has
fallen behind Jacquez. And the pitch is up, three and O. And Rosado snapped that
throw back to Rojas. (crowd clapping) The three-O is in there for strike one. Jacquez was ready to flip
the bat and go to first. – [Crowd Members] Let’s go, Timo. Let’s go Timo. – [David] Big hole up the
middle, the three-one pitch is low, ball four. Jacquez works a leadoff walk. And that will bring up Lebro Burnette. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the center fielder, number 16, Lebro Burnette. – [David] Burnette is two for four and had a sacrifice fly back in the fourth, also scored in the first inning. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Lebro, Let’s go. Let’s go, Lebro, let’s go. – [David] Had a two run hit in the fifth. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Lebro, let’s go. – [David] Runner goes,
and he’s gonna have it as the pitch was in the dirt. Rosado never got the throw
off, a stolen base for Jacquez. (crowd cheering) I wonder how many runs
Roger Mischel will play for as he’s pumping up the
Queensborough crowd. ‘Cause a bunt would kinda
say we want the one run, get this guy to third with out out, but I don’t think he’ll bunt. The one-O pitch to Burnette. In there for strike one, evens
up the count at one and one. Jeinson Espinosa is on deck. (crowd clapping) One-one pitch is high for
ball two, two and one. Daniel Rojas trying to
hold the Tigers right here. The two-one pitch – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Tigers, let’s go. – [David] Ground ball to second. That’ll get the runner over. Nice job, Jacquez goes to third. Burnette retired, four to three. Now I expect the Broncos
to bring the infield in, man on third, one out.
– The third baseman, number two, Jeinson Espinosa. – [David] The question
is will Roger Mischel put the contact play on which as soon as Espinosa makes contact with it, Jacquez will come home, or will he wait for it to get past the infield? First pitch of the at bat,
and it goes to the backstop. Here comes jacquez, and it’s 16-13. (crowd cheering) Went right off the glove of Rosado. It doesn’t matter what
infield shift you put on, what defensive alignment
when that happens. Nothing Coach Dejesus can do. (crowd clapping) (crowd cheering) The one-O pitch to
Espinosa misses, two and O. (crowd cheering) Seems like decades ago the Broncos led this game 10-two. They’re down 16-13 right now. And they’re not done with it yet, behind three and O on Espinosa. (crowd cheering) (crowd clapping) Three-O pitch in there for strike one. (crowd cheering) It’d be funny, two, three, and four are due up for the Broncos,
tough part of the order. The three-one pitch is fouled away, and that’s going into
and over the bleachers. (glass shattering) And now the count is full. – [Crowd Members] Let’s go, Tigers. – [David] Three and two to Espinosa as the people who work for CUNY wonder who the heck is gonna
be the MVP in this game. A lot of guys with two
for four and a few RBIs. You could give it to Matt Brown if he gets the last
three outs of next inning to put the Broncos away,
five relief innings to get the win. That’d be something. The three-two pitch to
Espinosa is high for ball four. (crowd cheering) And now Thomas Grillo is up. Sixth and seventh innings, Grillo singled and came around to score. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the shortstop, number nine, Thomas Grillo. (crowd cheering) – [David] So Rojas looks in for the sign. Espinosa on first, not going. And that’s looped into short right-center. Nobody’s gonna get it,
and everybody’s safe. Espinosa to second, Grillo is on first. (crowd cheering) Another hit for the Queensborough Tigers actually their first of the inning. – Now batting, the catcher,
– They scored a run on no hits. – [PA Announcer] number 18, Nicholas Yip. – [David] Now Nicholas Yip who had the two run triple in the seventh to break a 12-12 tie. There’s a sizeable hole
between third and short. Espinosa with very good speed on second as time is called. – [Crowd Member] Get a hit, Yip. – [Crowd Members] Yip, Yip, Yip, Yip, Yip. – [David] The first pitch
of the at bat to Yip. Runner goes, throw to
third is not in time. (crowd cheering) It was close, but Espinosa had it stolen. – [Crowd Member] You gotta be on that. – [David] Now the opportunities
are that much greater for Roger Mischel. Now a force out brings a run in. Bronx infield has to decide
how they want to play it. – [Crowd Members] Yip, Yip, Yip, Yip, Yip. – [David] They’re about
halfway, well the double play is still in order, so I take that back. Could still play at double play depth. Could a squeeze be in order? The O-one pitch is in
there for strike two. It’s O and two on Yip. – [Crowd Member] Here we go, Nick. Let’s go now, one, Nick. – [David] First and third, one out, O and two to Nicholas Yip. – [Crowd Members] Yip, Yip, Yip, Yip. – [David] And the pitch from
Rojas is high and inside, and Yip backs out of the way. It’s one and two. Hamo Deljanin is on deck. (crowd cheering) – [Crowd Member] Come on, Nick. (crowd cheering) – [David] The one-two is fouled away. I thought it was interesting
when Espinosa stole third. Third baseman Jose Ramirez as he has been for virtually the whole game
was pretty close to the bag. So he didn’t have to go
that far, but the speed of Espinosa was so great that
it beat the throw from Rosado. (crowd cheering) The one-two pitch is fouled away. (organ music) Also wonder if Roger
Mischel may do something he did earlier in the game which is have the runner on first take off for second and dare the catcher
to throw it down there and risk Espinosa stealing a run. One and two, two on, one out. (crowd cheering) And the pitch is in the
dirt, and Espinosa’s gonna come in to score. And Grillo is gonna go,
he’s gonna stay at second. He was halfway between second and third. And now Grillo’s gonna take off for third. That is unbelievable. Catcher tried to throw it back to Rojas, and it got away from him, and Grillo goes second to third. Heads up running. So they’ve scored two runs this inning, one on a passed ball, the
other on a wild pitch. (crowd cheering) So somehow Yip is still up. It goes from first and
third to a run home, and the runner on first
moves over to third, and now the infield is in. And this run is the manager’s insurance because right now a grand
slam could still tie the game. If they get this 18th run in, a grand slam would not tie the game. The two-two pitch to Yip is in the dirt, and that almost got away. (crowd member cheering) Losing his control here. (crowd clapping) Broncos infield in on the grass. Three and two, ball four. Yip walks. Now Deljanin is up with
two on and one out, runners on the corner. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] The designated hitter, number 15, Hamo Deljanin. – [Crowd Members] Let’s
go, Hamo, let’s go. Let’s go, Hamo, let’s go. Let’s go, Hamo, let’s go. Let’s go, Hamo, let’s go. Let’s go, Hamo, let’s go. – [Crowd Member] Come on, Hamo. (crowd clapping) – [David] Infield back
at double play depth, two on, one out. Pitch is in there for a strike. Deljanin singled twice
and was hit by a pitch in the last two innings. (crowd cheering) O and one to Deljanin. (crowd clapping) O and one, the pitch,
runner breaks to second. The throw goes into center
field, and another run is gonna score, and it’s 18-13. Grillo scores. Yip goes first to third. The Broncos are throwing the
CUNY championship game away. And I’m a little surprised
they threw to second. (crowd cheering) O and two to Hamo Deljanin. Infield in again. Four errors the Broncos have committed. And that pitch is gonna
go to the backstop. Queensborough scores again, 19-13. Four runs in the bottom of the eighth. What is going on here?

now playing first base for the Broncos, number 17, Joan Rosado. Now pitching for the Broncos,
number 29, Richard Bethea. And now catching for the
Broncos, number 15, Daniel Rojas. (“Hip Hop Hooray” by Naughty by Nature) – [David] So the one-two pitch. New pitcher comes in in
the middle of an at bat. How do you like that? It’s Ritchie Bethea who
moves from first to pitcher. Joan Rosado moves from catcher to first. Daniel Rojas is back at catcher. High fly into deep left. That’s over his head. And it’s gonna be a ground rule double. (rock music) Deljanin didn’t miss a home run by much. (rock music) Calvin Luk is up now. Man on second, one out. Well wild moves, I mentioned
earlier in the game. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the second baseman, number 68, Calvin Luk. – [David] That Bethea did some mop up duty earlier in the year and gave up 10 earned runs in three innings and gave up two home runs. This is the third starter from this game. The position player who went to the mound for the Broncos, Rowin Rodriguez, Daniel Rojas, and now Bethea. Before them, Luis Tapia replaced
the starter, Omar Gomez. Strike one. And Gomez was staked to an eight run lead. Tigers have out scored
the Broncos 17-three since the fourth. High chopper goes to third. Throw to first pulled him off the bag. First and third, one out. And they also had Deljanin
between second and third, and they didn’t try to get him. Instead they went the long way. And so the fifth error of
the game was committed. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, number 22, the first basemen, Richard Tejada. – [David] Richard Tejada has been on base all five times he’s been up, a walk, a single, a walk, a
single, and another single. (rock music) What a wild box score this is to look at. The pitch is in the
dirt, and that’s gonna go to the backstop, and the Tigers
have scored 20 runs, 20-13. (crowd member yelling) As Deljanin scores, so not
only were they down 10-two, not only have they come
back, now they’re blowing the Broncos out. (crowd cheering) One and O, high and inside. (crowd clapping) Two and O, Tigers have 20 runs on 18 hits, and that’s gonna get away. And now Luk moves up to
third on a wild pitch. And the scoreboard says
one out which is correct. It momentarily said two. Bottom of the eighth,
Tigers 20, Broncos 13. The infield is in again. The three-O is in the dirt, ball four. Tejada walks, and that’ll
bring up Alex Pangourelias. This is one of those
games where you’re getting blown out, and you don’t see it that much in Major League baseball, but sometimes they put in
position players to pitch. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number 55, Alex Pangourelias. – [David] For New York
fans, they may remember Bobby Valentine did that
sometimes with the Mets, Matt Franco, Derek Bell would go in at the end of blowouts. (crowd cheering) First and third, one out,
Tigers have already scored five this inning. And that’s in there for
a strike, O and one. (crowd cheering) Pitch is fouled away way
into the parking lot. And now O and two to Pangourelias
who’s had a nice game. Cut it from 12-nine to
12-11 with the single down the right field
line on three and two. And then he came in to score
on a balk to tie the game. And there’s a looper into
right field, base hit. It’s 21-13. The hits just keep
coming for Queensborough. And they’ve turned an eight run deficit into an eight run lead. And now Timothy Jacquez
who led off the inning with a walk and scored
– Now batting, the left fielder,
– is up again. – [PA Announcer] number
seven, Timothy Jacquez. (crowd clapping) – [David] Nearly hit him,
but he got out of the way. One and O. Remember in the top of this inning, the Broncos were down
15-13, had the bases loaded, and Deaza up, as that
pitch is gonna get away, and both runners are gonna
move up to second and third. And it was 15-13, and Deaza
lines one up the middle through the legs of Matthew Brown, but Calvin Luk was there to
flip it to Thomas Grillo. And what could’ve been a tie game and the Broncos still threatening instead is now 21-13. Left side of the infield
in, and now the right side moves in. The two-O, little looper over the head of the shortstop, 22-13. And if he was back, he may have caught it, but they didn’t want to risk
giving a run for an out. 22-13, still one out in the inning. (crowd cheering) – [PA Announcer] The center
fielder Lebro Burnette. – [David] I joked at the
beginning of the inning it’d be nice if they could score an insurance run or three or four. They’ve scored seven. They lead 22-13. Line drive up the middle, make it 23-13. Eight runs in the eighth
inning for the Tigers. They’re leaving no doubt as to who the best team in CUNY is. 23-13 which is a pretty normal score for a football game. Not quite what you expect
even from community college, CUNY games, you still don’t expect 23-13. You expect that in beer
league softball maybe. (salsa music) Bottom of the eighth and more changes for the Broncos. As of now, 23 runs on
21 hits and two errors. The Broncos 13 runs, 16 hits, five errors, and a ton of wild pitches to go with that. (salsa music) – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, your attention please. Now pitching for the Broncos,
number 18, Jose Ramirez. Now playing third base for the Broncos, number 29, Richard Bethea. – [David] So another position player comes in to pitch, and now it’s the third baseman Jose Ramirez. And that pitch is in the dirt, one and O. – [PA Announcer] Batting for the Tigers, the third baseman, number
two, Jeinson Espinosa. – [David] Jeinson Espinosa
who’s already scored once this inning. The one-O pitch nearly beans Espinosa. It’s two and O. That was not intentional though. I don’t think because they’re down by 10 in the CUNY title game he’s trying to throw at his head. That’s what happens when you stand at third base the whole
game, and then they ask you to pitch at the end. The sixth Bronco pitcher,
the fourth who started the game at another position. That’s right down the middle, two and one. Unbelievable turn of events. Scored 21 runs since the
bottom of the fourth. Espinosa has to get
out of the way of that. It’s three and one. This is probably the biggest turn around in a baseball game. And that’s lined into
left field, base hit. The bases are loaded now. – [PA Announcer] The
shortstop, number nine, – [David] Bases are
loaded for Thomas Grillo. – [PA Announcer] Thomas Grillo. – [David] So he was O for
three, and then he singled in the sixth and scored, singled in the seventh and scored, and he singled earlier this inning and scored. Now he’s trying to do it again. The pitch is fouled away. When you think of some wild games, usually they go back and
forth towards the end. Only one from Major League comparison was the Yankee-Red Sox game last year. Red Sox were up nine-nothing,
and then the Yankees came back with 15 in a row. Here’s the O-one pitch. There’s a high fly into deep left field. That one is foul. O and two, 300 foot strike. It would be the exclamation point of all exclamation points if he could hit a grand slam here. (crowd clapping) So Jose Ramirez looking
to put away Tomas Grillo. The O-two is in the dirt, one and two. Good stop by Daniel Rojas
who’s back behind the plate. (crowd clapping) The one-two is high, two and two. Wonder about Matthew
Brown, the Tiger pitcher who’s been on the bench
for 30 minutes now. But I guess they’ll let him get the last three outs as long
as he’s healthy enough. The two-two is high, three and two. Ramirez is one ball away
from walking in another run. (crowd cheering) Grillo the three-two, a
little bouncer to short. Go to second for one, no throw to first. It’s 24 to 13 on the force out. – [Crowd Member] You’re outta here. – [Crowd Member] Good call. – [David] It was actually the third out. I thought that was the
second out of the inning, and they’re saying it’s
the end of the eighth. ♪ Hey goodbye ♪ – [PA Announcer] Tigers pick
up eight runs on six hits. We’re going to the top of the ninth. It’s the Tigers 23 and the Broncos 13. (“Apache” Sugarhill Gang) ♪ Oh, oh, oh ♪ ♪ Tonto, jump on it,
jump on it, jump on it ♪ ♪ Kemosabe, jump on it,
jump on it, jump on it ♪ ♪ Custer, jump on it,
jump on it, jump on it ♪ – [David] So what the call
is and why the inning ended, the home plate umpire,
or one of the umpires called interference, so they had the force at second, and the interference, and somehow that’s a double play. And mercifully, the Broncos
– Now batting, the shortstop,
– pitchers are likely done for the night. They gave up 23 runs in eight innings. And now the Queensborough Tigers are three outs away from
repeating as CUNY champions. – [PA Announcer] Mark Ycaza. – [David] They lead by
10 in the ninth inning. Mark Ycaza leading off. Fouled away, O and one. And Matthew Brown who came in at the start of the fifth inning when it was 10-five. He gave up two runs, it was 12-five, and since Queensborough has
scored 16 of the 17 runs as that’s in there for strike two, and he’s in line to get the win. Seems to be the relievers
for Queensborough the last two years. Scagnelli and now Matthew Brown three outs away from getting the win. The O-two, fly ball to right. Pangourelias on the run, dives, can’t make the play. Ycaza’s going for two, and he has it. A double for Ycaza. – [Crowd Member] Let’s go, let’s go. Let’s go, guys. (crowd cheering) – [David] So leadoff double by Ycaza. Now Ritchie Bethea is up. – [PA Announcer] The third baseman, number 29, Richard Bethea. – [David] Had an RBI ground
out back in the fifth. Before that, he singled
and scored in the third. And the pitch is in there for strike one. It’d be something for a five inning relief appearance for Matthew Brown. Mark Salazar was taken out after four. He gave up 10 runs. The O-one pitch is nubbed foul, O and two. Queensborough was down by eight. They lead by 10. 23 runs on 21 hits aided
by five Bronco errors and a multitude of wild pitches. High, ball one, it’s one and two. One and two to Bethea, the
pitch from Brown, falling fast. So one out. Ycaza moves to third. Bethea is retired. The Tigers are two outs away from winning the CUNY championship. – [PA Announcer] Now batting, the catcher, number 15, Daniel Rojas. – [David] Daniel Rojas,
the cleanup hitter is up. He began the game as the catcher, went out to the mound to
pitch for a little while, and now he’s the catcher again. – [Crowd Member] Come on, Danny. – [David] Now he’s
hoping to drive in a run for his Broncos. Ball one, one and O. Brown delivers, liner, base hit almost. Grillo, Derek Jeter like
throw, not in time, 23-14. An RBI hit, Ycaza scores. Rojas is on first. (rock music) – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the center fielder, number 19 Rowin Rodriguez. – [David] Now Rowin Rodriguez who began in center field, then was pitching, then went back to center field, he has three singles in this game. Hoping to extend the Broncos season. (crowd cheering) Pitch is outside, ball one, one and O. – [Crowd Member] Come on. – [David] One and O to Rowin Rodriguez, a double play here would end it. And he takes that outside
for ball two, two and O. A big difference from last year’s game where there were four runs scored in the final six innings combined all by the Tigers, all in
the bottom of the fifth. This has been a slug fest,
and that’s fouled off over the bleachers, two and one. Tigers are two outs away from
CUNY championship number 15. Little looper into left, on the run, and the catch is made. A tremendous diving
catch by Timothy Jacquez, and the Broncos are
down to their final out. And it’s Felix Torres who came into this game in the fifth inning. – [PA Announcer] Now
batting, the right fielder, number five, Felix Torres. – [David] He went into center field, moved over to right, and now he might be the last out of the
CUNY championship game. Tigers getting read to storm the field. One out away. The pitch from Brown
fouled away, O and one. (crowd cheering) Tigers tied the school record
for the most regular season wins in the CUNY. They went nine and three this year like they did the year before. The O-one pitch, swing
and a miss, strike two. One pitch away. (crowd cheering) O and two to Felix Torres. Matthew Brown the stopper who came in when the Tigers were still down 10-five. The O-two pitch, line drive, Grillo takes it himself. The Tigers are CUNY champions again. – [PA Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, that’s the ballgame. For the Broncos, they
pickup one run on two hits. They leave one. The final score, the Queensborough
Community College Tigers 23 runs, 21 hits, two errors. The Bronx Community College Broncos– – [David] So just your typical
championship box score. Queensborough had 23 runs
on 21 hits and two errors. The Bronx Broncos 14 runs,
18 hits, and five errors. Queensborough was down
10-two in the fourth inning. – [PA Announcer] Announcing
the most valuable player. – [David] And the Tigers
came roaring back, made it 10-five, and then it was 12-five. Then they scored three in the
fifth to make it 12-eight. Tied it in the sixth to make it 12-12. Went ahead with three
in the seventh, 15-12. Nicholas Yip with a two run triple just inside the first base line. And then 15-13, and
maybe the underrated play of the game, 15-13,
bases loaded, two outs, Deaza hits one up the
middle, and Luk stops and flips to Grillo. Tigers score eight in the bottom of the eighth to put it away. They scored 23 runs, a CUNY
championship game record. Roger Mischel has his second
championship as coach. And the Tigers are CUNY
champions once again. (Latin music) (team members yelling) (Latin music) (crowd cheering) (Latin music) (Tigers cheering) – [Man Off Camera] Longest
game in CUNY history. (Tigers cheering) – [David] And how nice,
the MVP is gonna be one of Roger Mischel’s old friends as they celebrate on the infield. It’s gonna be Alex Pangourelias
who went four for five, also had a sacrifice. And they thought about
a few different guys, and here’s the official announcement. – [Announcer] We’d like
to take this opportunity to thank the Athletic
Department, the members of public safety here at
the College of Staten Island for hosting tonight’s championship game. We’d also like to thank our sponsors especially MCU for sponsoring
tonight’s championship game between Bronx Community College and the repeat champion Queensborough Community College Tigers. (Tigers cheering) (announcer muttering) We’d like to invite the
coaches and team captains to come up and pick up this
year’s runner up trophy. The head coach, Adolfo
Dejesus, the assistant coaches, Effrain Palmares, and Mike Arroyo. The athletic director is Michael Belfiore. – [David] The Bronx Broncos
finished seven and five in the regular season, second in CUNY. They had an eight run lead
in the CUNY title game, fall up short, and I
wanted to make one mention. Matthew Brown pitched very well. Two earned runs in five innings at a time when the Tigers were on the ropes. The only reason he didn’t get the MVP – [Announcer] Ladies and
gentlemen, please give the Bronx Community College
– is because the game was broken open at the end.
– Broncos a great, big round of applause. – [David] That’s the only reason or else he may have gotten it. If the final score was a little closer, he might have gotten it. But nine run game, that’s the only thing that made CUNY hesitant
when they named the winner. And Pangourelias went four for five. Espinosa’s name came up with
the inside the park home run. – [Announcer] We’d also like
to take this opportunity to recognize the members
– It was like you know finding a needle in a haystack
– of the Bronx Community College Broncos, please
keep the applause going as I introduce them individually. We’ll begin with number 10
– It could’ve gone to a number of guys. – [Announcer] Number 10, Jeffery Lara. – [David] And it’s Alex
Pangourelias, the transfer. – [Announcer] Number five, Felix Torres. – [David] Queensborough wins 23-14. – Number 12, Jonathan Suarez.
– Pangourelias the MVP. Mischel wins the CUNY title again as coach – [Announcer] Number 13, Mark Ycaza. – [David] on the 10th
anniversary that he was the winning pitcher
– Number 14, Omar Gomez. – in this game against
Bronx Community College. – [Announcer] Number 15, Daniel Rojas. – [David] This one shows the Tigers heart. – [Announcer] Number 16, Crioni Brazoban. – [David] A lot of fight. Last year, they were up five-one, blew a four run lead and hung in there and won by four anyway.
– Number 17, Joan Rosado. – [David] But to be down
by eight and come back and just absolutely blow
Bronx out of the water is something else.
