Shortstop Danienger Perez, making his New York-Penn League debut, went 3-for-4 with a double, triple and three RBI as the Staten Island Yankees routed the Connecticut Tigers 10-2 on Sunday afternoon at Dodd Stadium.
Tied 1-1, the Lowell Spinners scored three times in the top of the inning to lead 4-1. The Connecticut Tigers, however, scored two in the bottom of the 10th to pull within 4-3 before hitting into a game-ending double play.
"If I was a quarterback, I'd throw the ball to Noel (Thomas)," said coach Bob Diaco, standing on Rentschler Field two weeks before the UConn football team opens the season against Villanova. "He's probably going to catch it."
