The Cubs had a tall order today coming up against a hot Braves team. Leading the Braves offensive charge was Kenny Hirschfeld and Ryan Wasserman with four hits each. Kenny had another big double and Ryan had four RBIs. Alan Sikora, Duhan Lee, Edward Mauceri and Christopher Chin had three hits each. Also contributing to the offensive was Christian Sikiric, Michael Paladino with two hits each and Anthony Levia with one hit. The defense was led by Ryan, Kenny and Christopher turning one great play after another. Ryan turned an unassisted double play and Michael turned in the play of the game with tremendous play at shortstop for the putout. The Braves are really starting to break stride and come together as the season comes to a close. The Cubs also played a very good game.
This week the varsity baseball team played the undefeated Wantagh team. In game one, the team fell short by a score of 8-7. Nick Perrone threw a complete game with nine strikeouts. He gave up five earned runs. Juniors Fran Terrero and Anthony Simone had three and two hits apiece. In game two, Wantagh won 10-1 by a well-pitched game by Kevin Sprecht. In game three, Anthony Simone took the mound and handed Wantagh their first loss of the season by the score of 4-2. Simone pitched six strong innings while Brendan Parnell pitched the last inning for the save. John Tomasini had a two RBI single in the fifth inning to give NHP a 4-1 lead.
Luke Notine was the Rockies starting pitcher and did a great job throwing strikes through the first two innings. On offense, Alan Birnbaum got things started with a fly ball single to right field in the bottom of the first inning, and played well in the field. Gavin Borduas did a great job behind the plate in the second and third innings and worked out a two-out walk in the 3rd with nobody on which lead to a big inning. Joe Muratore provided a spark on both sides of the ball, giving the team a very strong effort. He kept opposing pitchers off balance with his antics on the base paths, and showed great hustle throughout the game. Frankie Sannuti pitched extremely well in his first outing of the season. He battled through the third inning to limit the Phillies’ chances. Great job, Frankie. Chris Gould hustled on the base paths and played hard in the field making a nice play on a deep drive to left to get the ball in quickly and limit the other team’s chances while Paul DePaulis had some great at bats, and played well in the field. He also took the mound and shut the other team down at the plate in the 4th inning. Danny McClellan provided a big lift at the plate with two hard hit doubles. Danny also pitched a 1,2,3 final inning to close it out for the Rockies.

A beautiful Sunday afternoon set the stage for the long awaited rematch between the Hand-rolled Bagels Padres and the New Hyde Park Elks Royals. Andrew Kern set the stage for a big Padres inning when he singled to start the game. The next seven batters reached base safely and the Padres were off and running. Andrew, Stephen Coffey, Michael O’Grady, and Andrew Stein led the charge with four hits each. Other noteworthy contributions were given by Christian Flynn (3 hits, 1 run) and Sanay Shah (3 hits, 1 RBI). As usual, the Padres were able to depend upon Marco Gullo and Joe Mattei for their brilliance in the field, making plays to save runs, but the play of the day belonged to Vincent Pepe. Vincent stopped a ball with his face (prompting a collective gasp from the capacity crowd) and stood in stunned silence for a moment before completing the play at first base. After a two-batter stint on the disabled list, Vincent (now dubbed “Braveheart” by his awed teammates) returned to finish the game and drive in three runs. Another great performance by Hand-rolled Bagels Padres.
