Another wet week ensued with various postponements. Here comes though some highlights from the last week.
Michael Useda had three hits as Ian Cukro (scored a run) and Ryan McCormick had two hits apiece in the Storm’s 10-5 loss at the hands of the Bats. The Storm then lost to the Sea Dogs, 18-11, despite timely hitting from Evan Stogner (two doubles); Michael Useda (double and one hit) and Rodni Leftwich (double and hit)...The Sea Dogs themselves lost to the Hooks, 16-8. The Sea Dogs scored six runs in the sixth inning led by Max Duchnal, Ryan Serrano and Chris Gielbeda, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Hooks’ huge lead. The Sea Dogs’ Coloseno Bianco was a force behind the plate as Zach Gotterbarn and Genalie Prezeali were kept busy on the leftside of the outfield. Devin Maisunet, Anthony DiLeo, Joey Rant all went four-for-four with a combined six RBI in the team’s 10-5 win against the Storm. The Sea Dog outfield of Troy Wright, Jake Casale, Matt Bailey and Noah Capps anchored the defense.
The Islandia School Supplies Mets had a mixed week, winning one, losing a game and tying one. Let’s begin with the winning one: They beat the Glen Cove Angels, 13-10. The hitting stars were Brianna Malvino, Gianna Stanco, Jennifer Heman and Jessica Ninesling. The pitching stars were Ninesling and Alexandra Martinez. The defensive star was Casey Duffy.
