LAKELAND, Fla. — Wade Hinkle’s heroics came in the bottom of the 16th in the form of an RBI single.   It was Hinkle’s only hit, but what a huge one.

The walk-off table was set by a Ross Kivett single and then a single by Will Maddox to push Kivett into scoring position.

Mark Ecker pitched two scoreless innings, allowing one hit and striking out four Yankees to notch the win.
