Oct 25 2053: Miraculous Comeback - by Andreimun on February 14th, 2022
In the first playoff game between our York Frogs and the Tustin Knuckleheads, fans witnessed a comeback that was nothing short of miraculous. Down 8-0 in the bottom of the 5th inning, the Frogs were able to score their first run. However, the top of the 6th saw Tustin apply more pressure: with only one out and runners on 2nd and 3rd, Cho grounded to 2B Finch, who threw leadoff batter Mori out at home, before Ellis ended the inning via a strikeout. Buoyed, the Frogs scored 6 run at the bottom of the 6th. Finch contributed again with a two-run double, following a Keane 3-run shot and a Batista sacrifice fly. York added one more run in the 7th to tie things up via a Vigil double. The game required extra innings, with Suarez eventually securing the walk-off hit via a double in the 10th to secure the comeback. An incredible comeback for the Frogs, who score 9 unanswered to win it 9-8.

22-year old first baseman Brian Morley's grand slam in the 7th inning gives York 100th win of the season, 6-2 over the Moline Lumberjacks. It is only the second time in franchise history that the Frogs reach this landmark. 23 years ago, before Morely was born, the 2030 Frogs finished the VI.27 season with 101 wins and promoted to division IV the next year. This young York team is now looking to beat that mark, with three games remaining in the regular season.
