J.B.L.L. Update: Minor Boys Division Results

J.B.L.L. Update: Minor Boys Division Results

MARINERS 3 METS 3    May 2

John Cunningham gave his Mariners teammates the early lead with a three-run double in the first inning. The Mariners also got solid and stingy pitching from starter Josh Kaye, allowing only two hits and two runs over three innings. The Mets scratched and clawed back, scoring all their runs on aggressive base-stealing, led by Joe Connolly who had three swipes and scored a run.  Met pitcher Jimmy Kroog came on in the second to slam the door on the Mariners, throwing five scoreless innings in this nail-biter of a game. Mariner John Alite had a solid day at the plate, hitting two triples and scoring a run. Catcher Mikey Dougherty threw out the potential winning run at third to end the game in dramatic fashion.


The Yankees jumped out to an early lead thanks to the bats of Chris Berrios and Anthony Cani, both with two RBI's. The Athletics fought back, however, led by hitters Steven Sugden and Ronnie Lonnborg. In the sixth inning, the Yankees picked up three runs on an RBI double by Phil D'Agostino along with some aggressive base-running by Nick Gonzales. The Athletics closed the gap in their half-inning on a three run triple by Thomas Harnisher, only to fall one run short.

YANKEES 10 METS 7   May 6

   Yankee pitchers Anthony Ciambriello and Eddie Kane combined for an impressive win against a heavy-hitting Mets club. Both boys helped with the lumber as well, getting three hits and two RBI's between them. Catcher Anthony Cani was devastating behind the plate, throwing out two Met base-stealers at third. The Mets bats continue to deliver, pounding out sixteen hits, led by Big Eric Wick who went 3 for 3 with two doubles, a triple and four RBI’s. Tommy Henglein and Jimmy Kroog also had big hits, but it was the Met pitching, issuing 17 walks, which proved to be their downfall. The Yankees improved to 2-1, and are riding a two-game winning streak.
