The Paso Robles High School baseball team outlasted Atascadero 2-1 in nine innings Thursday, winning in walk-off style thanks to a fielding error to complete a three-game sweep this week of the Greyhounds.
In the bottom of the ninth, with runners on first and second and no outs, Nolan Binkele laid down a sacrifice bunt. The throw wasn’t fielded cleanly, and Dylan Lewis came in to score after reaching on an error earlier in the inning.
Bearcats starter Aiden Kearns went three scoreless innings before Binkele threw six innings in relief, striking out seven and giving up one earned run. Binkele struck out the final six hitters.
