The Peglegs’ opened their PSAL season with a come from behind 4-3 victory over the West 50th Street Seahawks.

Starting pitching Iravan Bhattacharyya went four innings keeping the game close and striking out seven. Ethan Lin got the win with three innings of one-hit scoreless relief. The Seahawks threatened in the last frame, leading off the inning with two baserunners and no outs. But Stuyvesant was determined not to let the game slip away and a strikeout by Lin ended the contest.

Stuy’s offense put three on the board in the fourth, including a clutch bases loaded single by catcher Adam Lucey. The go ahead run in the fourth was sparked by a double by sophomore Axel Riess and was driven in by a base hit by senior co-captain Sam Levine.

The two teams face off again next week.

Stuyvesant suffered it’s first loss of the season, going down to Midwood 9-8. The game had some oddities (a HBP that wasn’t, catcher’s interference) and a lot of sloppiness (errors, walks, missed cutoffs, dropped balls). Still, the Peglegs had multiple chances to win but couldn’t make plays when they needed to.

Sophomore and JV Captain Mantas Kempinas looked good in his first varsity appearance, throwing four innings in relief.

Yesterday, the Peglegs extended their preseason win streak to four with a 9-0 win over Lab Museum United.

Sam Levine got the start and threw five scoreless innings, letting up just one hit to go with seven strikeouts. Ben Harwayne came in to shut the door with two scoreless innings, looking strong on the hill.

Paul Liou, Iravan Bhattacharyya and Brandon Schwartz had hits for the Peglegs. The defense and baserunning continued to be a strength of the Peglegs early this season.

Let’s keep it rolling boys!!

The Peglegs chalked up another pre-season win today over John Jay. The final was 4-1. Iravan Bhattacharyya started on the mound but has to exit in the second with a blister on his pitching hand. He dominated from the start but his outing had to be cut short.

Enter Ethan Lin!!!! Ethan had to come in cold but warmed up right away. He gave the Peglegs 5 innings of 1 run ball against a strong John Jay team. He was overpowering to most of the hitters and kept them off balance. Julian Malenda came in for the save in the bottom of the 7th.

Stuyvesant’s bats were quiet, however.  One hit apiece by Sam Levine and Ethan Kirschner were all the team managed today.  Pitching and fielding saved the day.

Trinity 10000121

The Peglegs opened up their pre-season today with a 7-1 victory over the Trinity Tigers in 5 innings.

On the mound, we looked great:  Iravan Bhattacharyya started the game and was stellar. After giving up a run in the top of the first, Iravan blanked the Tigers for the next 3 innngs. Sam Levine came in to shut the door in the last inning, striking out four in the frame.

At the plate on on the bases, we were off to a great start as well:  Smart, aggressive base running by Paul Liou and Jeremy Lee led to runs.  We also had great situational hitting and productive outs by Peter Carini, Ethan Lin and Julian Malenda.

This was a total team effort and our defense was perfect.  It was great to return to a newly renovated Pier 40 and get a W against a very talented Trinity team.

It was also a weird to return to the pier without coach Matt Hahn being there.  I have to say it was very tough for me not to think about him every inning today. I’ve been so used to looking over at the end of the dugout and seeing him sitting there writing his little notes so he could give his recap at our end of game meeting on how the played.
I know he was looking down at the game today and he was proud of way the we played today.

Great job boys!

Coach Carlesi said: “Today the Peglegs played their final game on a Covid shorten season. Even though it was a short season it felt like it lasted for ever. Unfortunately, the game today didn’t go our way again. Lack of quality starting pitching and situational hitting hurt us again. For the first time in 15 years the Peglegs were mercied on back to back games. Not the way we wanted to end the season for our seniors but none the less we will miss them.
Thank you Luca Bielski, Jordan Gray, Rohan Saha, and Julian Singer for all the time and effort you have put in over the years. I do want to recognize Luca Bielski for being an outstanding captain!! Although an injury to his throwing arm forced him from behind the plate and pretty much on the bench, he never stopped being the captain! Always there to help out other teammates and do what he can to help the team. A true team player!!
Thank you guys,
We love you!!!”

Coach Carlesi said: “So today was a game we’d all like to forget. For the first time in close to 5 years the Peglegs got mercied. Final score 17-2.
Unfortunately, our pitching was not there. We walked 13 and hit 2 batters. Giving a good team that many free bases is a recipe for a loss.
Hopefully, tomorrow we bounce back against the same teams!!”
