Joe Pantano is tagged out at home by Doug Clark during a rundown in the top of the fifth inning during Friday’s opening round of the Chautauqua Men’s Senior Baseball League playoffs. The Stericycle A’s defeated the Pro Bats Yankees by a score of 3-2 after the A’s Randy Stuart was hit by a pitch from Yankees pitcher Brent Thompson with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh and final inning. Mike Korzienewski pitched a complete game and picked up the win on the mound while Brandon Shelters led the A’s offense with three hits, including two doubles and a triple.
