Coach Carlesi said, “I’ve been waiting to write this in 20 years. We beat George Washington yesterday by the score of 7-6 in a rain shortened game. The game went 6 innings so it was an official game. According to Coach Hahn it was the first time in close to 50 years that Stuyvesant has defeated GW.
The game was a nail biter, Iravan Bhattacharyya
was stellar on the mound tossing 3 run ball in 4 innings. Iravan struck 6 batters and gave up only 2 hits while walking 3. We finally got the big hits today from Ethan Kirschner
with a 2 out, 2 strike single that scored 2 and Jonathan Lee
with a 2 out, 2 strike double that scored 2. Jordan Gray
had the biggest hit with a single off the fence in the bottom of the 6th to give us the lead. There were also great defensive plays by Sam Levine
with a diving play at SS on a hard hit line drive. Jonathan Lee with a sliding catch in left field and again Adam Lucey
throwing out a runner at 3rd on a suicide squeeze play that the batter missed.
The best quote came from Coach Hahn yesterday saying, ‘I can die now knowing we finally beat GW.’
We are very proud of the boys who simply did not give up!! Congratulations boys!!”
