Hitmen 001001000263
Cougars 20400000641

The Wrath Hitmen fell behind early and couldn’t come back in a 6-2 loss to Bay Ridge Cougars on Saturday. Iravan Bhattacharyya started on the mound for the Hitmen. The righty lasted three innings, allowing three hits and six runs (four earned) while striking out eight.  Sam Levine and Ethan Kirschner entered the game as relief, throwing four innings and one inning respectively. Levine went two-for-three at the plate to lead his team in hits. The Hitmen lost despite out-hitting the Cougars six to four. The reason? “We left 13 runners on base while striking out 15 times and committing three errors. We also walked nine times but couldn’t capitalize on their mistakes,” said Coach Carlesi.

The team got off to a fast start, with two hits in the first inning, scoring two runs with the help of two errors. They stretched the lead to six in the fourth inning with four singles and a walk.

Jeremy Lee and Sam Levine collected two hits each in a strong start to the season for the Hitmen.

I would like to thank Coach John, Coach Matt, Susan, Andrew and the entire Stuyvesant H.S. Baseball family for the courtesy extended to Arnold and I. The Alumni Baseball event was awesome. We left 44 years ago, and yesterday it felt like we never left. From Pegleg to Hitmen to Pegleg there was a great feeling of family.

(P.S. I hope the Hidden Ball Trick didn’t offend anyone. My team needed every edge.)

[Coach Carlesi–Facebook]

Today we said goodbye to our seniors at our annual awards dinner. Tears and good wishes flowed to everyone but there are certain people we’d like to acknowledge. Kathy Nissenbaum and Susan Asch for leading the FSB these past two years, you made our jobs so much easier. Eric Liou and Richard Bernstein for managing the funds and controlling the info to the parents. Stephen Hubbell for keeping up our website and going above and beyond finding all the past information about the Hitmen/Peglegs teams. Jimmy Wendt and Sam Feder for being great assistant coaches all season long. The boys learned so much from you guys. David Nissenbaum for all the videos he posted, especially the final out terrible strike call. There are so many more to mention, I just want to say thank you for a great season.

[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.

Thank you,

Stuyvesant Peglegs Varsity Lose Heartbreaker in the Playoffs

Stuyvesant watched the game slip away early and couldn’t recover in a 1-0 loss to Susan Wagner HS on Wednesday. Wagner took the lead on an error in the first inning.

The pitching was strong on both sides. Wagner pitchers struck out eight, while Stuyvesant sat down two.Walters got the start for the Falcons. He allowed one hit and zero runs over seven innings, striking out eight and walking one. Jared Asch was on the pitcher’s mound for the Peglegs. He allowed four hits and one run over six innings, striking out two.

In the first inning, Wagner got their offense started when an error scored one run for the Falcons. Stuyvesant’s Jeremy Rubin led off the 7th inning with a double putting the tying run in scoring position, but the Peglegs were unable to push a run across.

Yesterday, the Peglegs closed out the regular season with a 5-0 loss to Newtown HS. Jared Asch and Matt Deutsch held Newtown to only 3 hits but our defense didn’t hold up. We committed 4 errors which led to 5 unearned runs. The Peglegs also only managed 3 hits with a double from Malcolm Hubbell and singles by Luca Bielski and Cooper Nissenbaum.

We put the bat on the ball this time but only to hit right at their defense.

The Peglegs finish 7-9 in the regular season which I know was disappointing for the coaches and the team. The bright side is that we are headed to the playoffs again and anything can happen there. Remember, everyone’s record is 0-0 come Wednesday.

I want to thank the seniors for all there hard work over the years, you guys are are the hardest working team in all of Stuy and probably the league. Coach Hahn and I are so honored to have coached you over the years. Now let’s make some noise on Wednesday!!

Seeding comes out sometime on Sunday, let’s hope we get a good spot!!

Another game for the Peglegs and another loss. The Peglegs are now 6-8 in league play.

Jeremy Rubin was strong against our rival Beacon HS striking out 6 and giving up only 3 earned runs in a complete game. The Peglegs could only muster 3 hits on the day and left 7 on base. Once again the lack of the big hit with runs in scoring position has been a killer this year. Final score 4-1.

Just been a really tough year.

Once again the Peglegs dropped another one to Franklin Lane HS at the pier yesterday 7-3. Again, the lack of the big hit hurt us. Our on base percentage was .425 but our BA for the game was .136. Lane gave us 12 free bases but we couldn’t score. Malcolm Hubbell Matt Deutch threw well but you can’t win ball games if you can’t hit.
