Stuy easily handled Francis Lewis HS in a five-inning 11-0 victory.

Sophomore starting pitcher Mantas Kempinas, newly promoted from JV, threw four shutout innings allowing four hits and striking out four. Freshman Victor Kamrowski, also newly promoted, came in to close the door, going one inning.

The outcome was never really in doubt, as the Peglegs scored in every inning. Stuy had seven hits in the game, including two by catcher Adam Lucey and a triple by shortstop Sam Levine. Their bats were aided by seven Francis Lewis errors, two passed balls and two wild pitches. In the playoffs, scheduled to start in ten days or so, the Peglegs can’t count on other teams’ mistakes. Their bats seem to be heating up at the right time, however, and their pitching has been strong all season.

Things got interesting late as Francis Lewis loaded the bases in the bottom of the fifth with one out, looking to avoid a mercy and extend the game, but Kamrowski composed himself and retired the last two batters to end the game.

Stuy improved their record to 12-2 and are battling Beacon (10-1) for first place in the division.

Game Notes

  • Kamrowski was the first freshman to pitch in a league game in over five years
  • Lucey has hits in his last five games
  • Stuy finishes their regular season this week with two games against Richmond Hill and one with Franklin Lane Campus

For the second time this week, Stuyvesant overwhelmed the Newtown Pioneers, this time by a score of 12-2. The formula was the same – dominant starting pitching, this time by Paul Liou, and consistent hitting, led by Axel Riess who had two doubles and four rbi.

Liou had another strong start and allowed only four baserunners in a six inning complete game, striking out twelve. He continues to get stronger as the season goes on.

At the plate the Peglegs had eight runs by the middle of the second inning. Riess continued his hot hitting, as did Jeremy Lee and Ethan Kirschner who had two hits and two rbi each. Adam Lucey contributed a long double as well, looking confident at bat. Peter Carini reached base three times, keeping the pressure on Newtown all game.

Stuy is now 10-2 as the regular season winds down. They face undefeated Richmond Hill twice next week in what should be a first place showdown.

Game Notes

  • Jeremy Lee, Lucey and Kirschner have reached base safely in every game this season
  • Lucey has doubled in three straight games

Stuy continued their hot streak on Wednesday afternoon behind a shutout by Sam Levine in a 6-0 victory over the Newtown Pioneers.

The Peglegs made their presence felt early in a four run first inning that saw them plate four runs before they made their first out thanks to hits by Jeremy Lee, Ethan Kirscher and Levine. That turned out to be all Stuy needed to beat the Pioneers.

Levine through a fourth straight complete game, going five innings allowing three hits and striking out 11.

Kirschner, Adam Lucey and Paul Liou each had long doubles to help Stuy to victory.

This win brings the Peglegs to 9-2 on the season with a rematch with Newtown Thursday afternoon on the road.

Game Notes

  • Every Stuy started reached base at least once
  • Levine started that game striking out seven of the first eight batters faced
  • Stuy’s fielding was flawless, with no errors on the day
  • The Peglegs stole six bases

In one of the best games of the season, Stuy’s JV battled James Monroe’s JV to a 9-inning, 4 – 4 tie!

With 2 outs and the score knotted at 4 in the bottom of the 6th, Stuy moved runners to 2nd and 3rd on a wild pitch.  Sophomore, co-captain, Charles Merkel came to the plate and scorched a one hopper in the direction of the Monroe shortstop who stabbed the ball.  His throw to 1st base was low, but the Monroe 1st baseman picked it cleanly to beat Merkel by a couple steps.

Between innings, John Carrick, Monroe’s JV coach, described the exchange as the best fielding play he’s seen any team make this season.  What would likely have resulted in a tie-breaking, 2-run single went down in the book as nothing more than a 6-3 ground out.

Two innings later, with the score still tied at 4 – 4 in the bottom of the 8th, Freshman Andrew Choi singled to left field, then promptly stole 2nd base.  Two batters later, with 2 outs, Sophomore Adrian Veto came to the plate with Choi in scoring position.  Veto drove a ball deep to center field, but the Monroe outfielder made a great play to snuff out Stuy’s second potential walk-off hit of the game.

Freshman Victor Kamrowski took the hill for Stuy to start the game, striking out 5 batters in just 2 innings of work.  He was followed on the mound by Merkel who had the best outing of his career, throwing 7 complete innings, giving up just 3 hits and 3 runs, while striking out 10 batters.

After tying the game in the top of the 6th, Monroe didn’t really threaten in the final 3 innings, with one notable exception.

In the top of the 9th inning, a Monroe hitter blasted a tower shot to right field, forcing Freshman Christopher Louie to track back into the middle of a Downtown United Soccer Club practice which was in full swing on the adjacent field.  Louie remained remarkably composed as he circled behind one of the soccer nets positioned in deep right field, avoiding the soccer players around him.  As the ball fell, he reached up, but lost his balance and one shoe, falling to the turf.  Gathering himself, the Freshman stood up and showed the ball sitting firmly in his glove.  At which point the Stuy faithful on the field, on the bench and in the bleachers erupted in amazement!

Every boy on both teams played multiple innings and had at least one at bat.  It was a sensational afternoon for all, and both teams eagerly await what promises to be a fantastic rematch in the Bronx on Saturday, May 21st.
