Hitmen 0021010484
Huskies 0000023520

In the final pre-season warmup before the first PSAL game, the Wrath Hitmen played solid baseball despite a five to four defeat against Eleanor Roosevelt. Ethan Kirschner toed the rubber for  the Hitmen and shined with remarkable pitch location. He surrendered two runs on two hits over five and two-thirds innings, striking out ten and walking one. Catchers Adam Lucey and Jordan Gray each threw out a baserunner, shutting down the opponent’s running game. But Eleanor Roosevelt’s hitting picked up in the final innings and a few costly plays handed them the game. Ben Harwayne threw two-thirds of an inning in relief. Julian Singer went two-for-three at the plate to lead the team in hits.

Peglegs 8
Commodores 9
Coach Carlesi said of the PSAL scrimmage against Bayside: “Today had to be one of the most embarrassing losses that Stuyvesant has taken in a long time. A loss to Bayside HS 9-8 in a wall off. The positives to take out of this game is that we hit the ball well today. Ethan Kirschner hit a mammoth home run in the second inning, Iravan Bhattacharyya hit a bases clearing double, Jordan Gray had a triple and Julian Singer had 2 hits. Our pitches struck out 16 of their hitter and only allowed 1 hit in 7 innings. How did we lose? Our pitchers walked 13 batters and 3 hit batsmen. Our defense also had 3 errors. Not a good recipe for success. The walks today have been a continuous problem for us. Our pitchers are very good but are having serious control issues. Giving up free bases is worse than giving up 5 home runs. We need to do better boys!!”

Hitmen 0000200260
Knights 101001341

Wrath Hitmen suffered their second loss of the season to the Brooklyn Knights 3-2.  The Hitmen couldn’t capitalize with two runners on base in the first inning after a hit by Luca Bielski. Then the powerful top of the order hitters for the Knights slammed several balls deep into the outfield but only scored one. The Hitmen kept the game close with solid defense, committing no errors, and highlighted by one of the best throws of the season by Jeremy Lee in center field to nail the runner at the plate. Ethan Kirschner was stout on the mound in five innings, giving up 2 runs and five hits and only one walk. Isaac Lageschulte showed fine poise, pitching out of jams in relief, letting up one run with four strikeouts and three walks. Sam Levine continued his hot streak with two hits.

“Tough lost today,” Coach Carlesi said. “Great pitching by Ethan. Very good defense by Jeremy by throwing out a runner at the plate on a tag up. Jonathan Lee gave us a chance by hitting a two out single that tied the game. That was set up by a great bunt by Paul Liou and he beat it out. We left too many people in scoring position today and not getting the big hit.”

Youth Service 0011000266
Hitmen 113013973

Against a strong opponent the Wrath Hitmen played their best game of the season in a decisive 9-2 victory over Youth Service on a bright Spring morning. The Hitmen combined quality at bats and smart base running to power the offense, which got off to a fast start – scoring a run in the first inning on a single by Sam Levine. The short stop has hit safely in all five games of the season. Starter Paul Liou had his best outing of the season, hitting the zone with 15 first-pitch strikes and fooling batters with his off-speed stuff. Liou allowed two hits and two runs over five innings, striking out 13. In the third inning, with bases loaded and no outs, the Hitmen took advantage of the situation. In past games they stranded runners. This time they cleared the bases on a passed ball allowing Levine to steal home and then a single by Luca Bielski. Ben Rubin led the Hitmen with two hits in two at bats. Val Tartamella, a visiting player for the Hitmen, added a final flourish with a hard-hit home run to center in the fifth inning. Ben Harwayne and Chris Liu also collected hits. Tartamella closed out the game pitching in relief.

“Saturday’s game was a big hype knowing the type of teams Morris has had in the past. Liou was dominant for his 5 innings of work and our defense and situational hitting was key for the win. Bielski had a key opposite field single that brought in 2 runs which put the nail in the coffin against Morris,” Coach Carlesi said. “The biggest take away from this game was that our hitters were patient at the plate. Julian Duran had a 9 pitch at bat and Jonathan Lee had an 8 pitch at bat. Many other players fought off tough pitches and then got a hit on the pitcher’s mistake. Coach Hahn and I were very proud of the boys this weekend.”

The Wrath Hitmen cruised to their third victory of the young season, defeating the Brooklyn Pitbulls 15-2 on Friday. The Hitmen got on the board in the first inning when Iravan Bhattacharyya singled, driving in a run. The team notched seven runs in the third inning with singles by Ethan Kirschner and Chris Liu and a double by Sam Levine. Bhattacharyya started on the mound and allowed one hit and two runs over three innings, striking out five. Isaac Lageschulte and Justin Lin pitched in relief, shutting down the Pitbulls in the lopsided game. Luca Bielski, Ben Harwayne, Ethan Lin and Dexter Wells also collected hits for the Hitmen.

“The game was a mismatch of talent but we still needed to put the bat on the ball, play defense and throw strikes. All of which we did well,” Coach Carlesi said.

The Wrath Hitmen were victorious for a second time this season on the strong performance of pitcher Iravan Bhattacharyya. He gave up one run and two hits while striking out six for the win against the Staten Island Orioles. For the first time this season the Hitmen lived up to the team name, highlighted by a string of hits in the fourth inning with runners in scoring position. Bhattacharyya had a scorching triple to left field that ignited the team’s bats and Jeremy Lee contributed a pair of singles. Julian Duran, Jordan Gray, Sam Levine, Paul Liou and Chris Liu joined the hit parade. On defense, after a sloppy first inning, the Hitmen looked sharper. Catcher Adam Lucey gunned down two consecutive runners at second base to take the wind out of the Orioles. Ethan Lin and Levine pitched in relief. Levine posted three innings of shutout ball, striking out six.

“It was nice to see the bats come alive today, racking up 11 hits,” Coach Carlesi said. “It was also nice to see our pitching quiet our opponent’s bats, giving up only two hits, and catcher Adam Lucy throw out two runners trying to steal. As a team we need to polish up some things — our pitchers need to stop giving up free bases with walks and our defense has to play cleaner. Overall, it was a solid win.”
