IMG Academy 14U WBL Weekend Game Recaps: Max Yull and the Storm Walk-Off on Sunday

After many IMG Academy 14U Wood Bat Leaguers witnessed the Hurricanes walk-off to win the High School Wood Bat League championship, the Storm believed that Sunday was their day to be dramatic against the Wahoos. With playoff seeds on the line, both teams came out swinging. The Wahoos struck first when Geoff Beere reached via the walk and scored thanks to 3 wild pitches in the 1st inning. It wouldn't take long for the Storm to respond, scoring 3 runs in the 2nd thanks to the heart of their lineup. Jack Yamin singled and scored in the inning with help from Thomas Gannon who would also score. Liam Quigley reaked havoc on the bases in the second, stealing a base and eventually scoring on an error for the Storm as they took a 3-1 lead.

Just a short half inning later, the Wahoos battled back to force a tie as Jonathan Miller and Brandon Hamlet scored to make it a 3-3 contest. Heading into the 5th (the final inning for Sunday doubleheaders) with the score still tied, Miller and Beere teamed up to take the lead. Miller singled to centerfield before Beere brought him home with an infield single of his own.

Trailing by 1 in the bottom of the half of the 5th, the Storm wasted no time erasing the lead. Ilan Luttway sparked the team, earning the dreaded lead-off walk while Chris Shaw and Mitchell Milbauer both singled immediately after. With the bases loaded and nobody out, Max Yull stepped up to the plate with the chance to tie or, better, win the game for the Storm. On an 0-1 fastball, Yull optioned for the latter, smacking a 2-run walk-off double to left-center to give the Storm the 5-4 win.
