The Yona Red Hawks used a clutch performance against the Bank of Guam A’s Sunday night to pick up their first win in the 2014 the Budweiser Baseball League. The Redhawks beat the A’s 4-3 while holding down the home team A’s in the bottom of the 9th inning.

Pressure was on for Red Hawks relief pitcher Salvador Delfin who had A’s DJ Cruz at bat with the bases loaded. Delfin managed to get the strikeout, his third on the night, to complete the save while letting out a big sigh of relief.

Trailing 3-2 heading into the 6th inning, the Red Hawks got a big lift from Jimmy Manila who got and RBI single bringing home Gabriel Pangelinan to tie the game at three runs each.

The Redhawks capitalized on a BOG lead off error in the top of the 7th inning that allowed Shane Camacho to roam the bases. Camacho was then brought home by Darren Pablo on an RBI ground out to give Yona the definitive lead at 4-3.

The Red Hawks jumped on the board in the top of the second inning after getting three straight hits on A’s pitcher Paul Pangelinan to load the bases. Yona’s Jesse Fernandez hit an RBI single with the bases loaded, followed by a sacrificed hit by Manila to go up 2-0.

The A’s would respond by scoring one run in the second inning, followed by an RBI single from Nate Cruz and a scored run on a pass ball to give BOG their first lead 3-2 through the first three innings.

The A’s had trouble finding consistent hitting on the night while the Red Hawks were clicking on defense all night long.

Corey Mantanona gets the win for the Red Hawks while Delfin gets the save with three strikeouts. Losing pitcher was Rick Fernandez with two strikeouts while starting pitcher Pangelinan had 7K’s through six innings. Red Hawks starting pitcher Gavin Dirige finished with two strikeouts on the night.

For the Red Hawks, Camacho went 3-5 including the lead changing run. Manila had 2RBI’s on the night while going 1-3 at bat and Roman Aguero went 2-4 with one run to round out the Redhawks big night at bat.

A’s Mark Paulino went 2-3 with one run and a double while Cruz went 1-3 with one run and an RBI.
