BRONX - Although Mother Nature still has us wearing coats, winter caps and gloves, the Hayes Varsity team and junior right-handed pitcher Tyler Roche '20, who was handed the ball for Opening Day against Cardinal Spellman, combined for a complete game 7-inning shutout.
Roche, who has a number of colleges keeping a close eye every time he's on the mound, gave up only two hits, walked one and struck out an impressive 12 batters.
Not only was there excellent glove work by Domingo Corporan '20 and Wellington Gomez '19, the Cardinals (including Hanser Del Orbe, who connected with a single and a triple, Edgar Montalvo who went 2-for-3 and a stolen base, offense by Christian Delgado and Jeurys Cuevas who also stole two bases) provided much-needed runs to give Hayes their first win of the 2019 regular season.
