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.

Stuyvesant overwhelmed Cardozo tonight, sending a message to PSAL that these Peglegs are for real. Behind thirteen hits and ten walks and a second straight complete game by Sam Levine, Stuyvesant went home with a 17-4 victory and sole possession of first place in the AAA Western division.

At the plate, every Stuy starter reached base at least once. Jeremy Lee had three hits and three rbi. He now has six hits in his last three games. Levine also contributed three hits and five rbi. Paul Liou had two hits and two runs scored.

After the second inning, the game was never in doubt. Cardozo used six pitchers in six innings to try to keep Peglegs off the bases but just couldn’t do it.

Game Notes

  • Levine went six innings, striking out five while walking just one. He allowed five hits and two earned runs for his fourth win of the season.
  • Peter Carini and Axel Riess stayed hot, contributing one hit each. Carini had a double and two rbi.

A tough Bayside team awaits the Peglegs on Thursday.

Trojans 000000001
Peglegs 0000210330

Yesterday the Stuy Peglegs JV Team defeated the JV team from George Washington High School 3-0 behind one of the most dominant pitching performances in many years.

Mantas Kempinas, a 15 year old sophomore, held the Trojans to 1 hit and 1 walk while striking out 15. Catcher Adrian Veto called a very smart game and it is clear this battery works quite well together.
Offensively, the Peglegs only struck out 3 times and if not for some nifty defense by the Trojans, the score would have been even higher.
Defensively, there were not that many chances for our boys but when the ball was put in play our Peglegs played error free baseball.
Later in the season we will play the Trojans again but at their ballpark. We can be sure that the school that spawned HOF Rod Carew and Manny Ramirez not to mention dozens of college and Minor League players will have that game circled on their calendar. It’s already circled on ours.
Game Notes
  • Mantas Kempinas went 7 innings, striking out fifteen while walking just one.  He allowed just one hit.
  • Adrian Veto, Lucas McGarvey, and Mantas Kempinas each contributed one hit.
  • Adrian Veto and Lucas McGarvey each chalked up an RBI.
  • The Peglegs stole 7 bases; Adrian Veto and Lucas McGarvey with two each, Charles Merkel, Christopher Louie, and Mantas Kempinas with one each.
  • There were 4 walks for the Peglegs; Adrian Veto, Andrew Choi, Charles Merkel, Charlie Winer with one each.

Three Stuyvesant Peglegs pitchers combined on a no-hitter against the overmatched John Adams Spartans. The final score was 7-0.

Paul Liou, Ethan Kirschner, and Ben Harwayne weren’t spectacular – allowing eleven walks to go high the no-hitter – but got the job done.

The Peglegs came out looking lethargic but perked up in the fourth inning and beyond. The Peglegs offense was led by Axel Riess’s three hits and two more from Adam Lucey.  Timely hits by Liou and Kirschner gave them three and two RBI, respectfully.

Kirschner took the win for the Peglegs going three innings, walking four and striking out three.  Liou started the game and went three innings, allowing no hits, walking four and striking out four. Ben Harwayne came in to close the book on the Spartans.

Game Notes

  • The Peglegs finally had a perfect day in the field committing zero errors.
  • The Peglegs had ten hits in total with eight different players claiming at least one.
  • This was the first of a three game week, with the next two coming against Cardozo and Bayside.
