Baseball: Schroeder 5, Irondequoit 4 (8 innings)

Luke Pagano was the walk-off hero as Schroeder opened their season with a dramatic victory over the Eagles.

The two teams were tied in the top of the seventh inning when Connor Gresens hit a two-run double to give Irondequoit a 4-2 lead. Gresens had all four RBIs for the Eagles, going 3-4 at the plate.

It looked like that would be enough until Peyton Sanfilippo hit a monster two-run homer for Schroeder to tie it at four, sending the game to extra innings.

In the top of the eighth, Carraig Jones hit a triple to left-center but was stranded at third. In the bottom half of the inning, Jack Cannon hit a triple to the wall in right-center and was able to get home as Pagano’s single went just past the outstretched glove of the second baseman for the win.
