Stuyvesant Gets Revenge on Midwood Behind Strong Outing From Mantas Kempinas. Final 5-3.

Mantas Kempinas had another strong outing on the bump for the Peglegs yesterday. The righty had a rocky start, giving up a pair of runs in the first but then settled down making it through 6 solid innings of work. Kempinas allowed 3 runs on six hits while striking out 10 Hornets.
The bats were silent for the first 3 innings though they squared up a lot of balls just to be hit right at Midwood’s defense. The balls started to find holes and the Peglegs put up 5 spot in the 4th.
Andrew Choi and Axel Riess started things up in the 4th with back to back singles. Mantas followed up with another single scoring the Peglegs first run.
Jared Virasami followed up with a walk and then Kenny Harkin came through with a huge go ahead single, scoring 2 more runs. Stuyvesant added some insurance runs on a bases loaded balk and a Charlie Winer single.
Jasper Yu-Dawidowicz came in to shut the door on the Hornets in the top of the 7th.
The Peglegs finished the regular season with a 9-5 record, almost guaranteeing a home playoff game next Wednesday.
All of the coaches are particularly proud of this team because the pre-season did not look very bright. These boys over met expectations to the fullest and they should be very proud of themselves.
The split against two of the top 5 teams in the city should be a memory they don’t forget.
And to have so many alumni show up yesterday made it an extra special win. Love you guys!!
Seeding for the playoffs will happen sometime Sunday and we will post the standings. Right now, Stuyvesant holds sole position in 3rd play in our division.
Great job boys!!
So proud of you!!

Strong Hitting Wasn’t Enough To Overcome Errors In the Field that Lead To 4-3 Lost to Midwood.

Even though the Peglegs collected 8 hits to Midwood’s 5 the Peglegs left a lot of men on base and count not get the big hit.
Andrew Choi and Mantas Kempinas each collected two 2 on the day and Jared Virasami was fantastic on the mound. Virasami struck out 10 Hornets while giving up 4 hits and 3 runs over 5.1 innings.
The Peglegs had men on base almost every inning but Midwood pitchers would get out of jams.
The Peglegs are now 8-5 on the season with only 1 game left. With yesterday’s lost Stuyvesant fell out of contention for a top 10 stop in playoff seeding but with a win tomorrow there is a high possibility that we keep a top 15 seed and having a home game for the first round of the playoffs.
Next and final regular season game is tomorrow at Pier 40, game time is 3:45pm.
Come cheer on the boys!!
