Wed. May 22 2019 at Susan E. Wagner High School Hitmen (0) vs. Susan Wagner (1) May 22, 2019 123456789RHE Peglegs 0000000011 Falcons 100000x140 #1 of 4 Jared Asch takes charge with the season on the line #2 of 4 A disappointed team at its final post-game conference #3 of 4 The long goodbye #4 of 4 Pegleg families wondering what they will do with all the surplus free time now that the season is over [Coach Carlesi–Facebook] Today the Peglegs lost in the first round of the playoffs to Susan Wagner HS. The game was a pitchers duel and the only run was scored in the first inning. Jared Asch was amazing on the mound!! He scattered 4 hits over 7 innings and only 75 pitches. Jeremy Rubin had some great battles at the plate at every at bat and smacked a double in the top of the seventh With the tying run at second and Wagner’s pitcher creeping on 100 pitches Luca Bielski was putting together a 7 pitch at bat. On the 3-2 count the pitch was low and away, clearly ball four but the umpire called strike three and the game was over. I don’t mind losing but to lose on a terrible call like that is criminal. Yes, we didn’t hit well but we battled every inning!! Our defense was fantastic and our pitching stellar. To have a pitch like that called for strike three in a tight game like this is mind boggling!! When the oppositions parents and coaches say that was clearly not a strike what do you do. The umpire left immediately and didn’t even stay for the handshake. Unfortunately, this was the final game for our seniors who were heartbroken. I want to thank all of them for all their hard work over the years. I especially want to thank my captains, Malcolm Hubbell, Cooper Nissenbaum, Jared Asch and Jeremy Rubin for everything you’ve done for the team this year. Without you guys the season wouldn’t have gone as smooth as it did.
