SMCC Slips Past BA

The Wolverine Baseball team traveled to Southern Maine Community College for their second match up of the season. Although they played a great game, SMCC was able to slip past with a close 2-1 win.

Ben Fields started off on the mound for the Wolverines, followed by Cam Charette, Danny Sheehan, and Walker O'Connor. All four guys threw well only letting up one hit in the game. SMCC capitalized on two lead-off walks in which they were able to make their way around and score two runs.

Ethan Hanson had a great game as he tied things up with an RBI single in the top of the 6th bringing Caulin Rogers home. Stephen Russell led off the 7th with a hit and was advanced to second off a bunt from Rogers. Unfortunately the game ended with Russell on second and the Wolverines were not able to tie things up.

Coach Izaryk was proud of the team as a whole but was especially impressed with Rogers' performance in the day. After great defensive plays including picking a ball at second for a force out, then throwing behind a runner at third to start a rundown for a double play. He also had two stolen bases and a sacrifice bunt to put the tying run into scoring position in the seventh.

"We played the game very well today," stated Coach Izaryk after the game. "I thought we learned a lot about the importance of limiting walks on the pitching side of things, giving up only one hit, but having two lead-off walks come around to score and be the difference. We had 19 players appear in the box score today, which speaks to our depth. I was excited about the intensity and focus we showed for the full seven innings and hopefully we can carry that momentum forward, heading into our league opener at UMaine this weekend" finished Izaryk.

Up next the baseball team will travel to the University of Maine for a double header this Saturday starting at 2:00 P.M.

Baseball Splits Opening Games

The baseball team started things off with a doubleheader which BA split with the Frozen Ropes. In the first game of the series Bridgton won 8-7. In a very close second game, Frozen Ropes was able to slip past Bridgton 3-2 in extra innings.

In the games, Nick Swim led the attack with a single, a double and a triple. Paul and Ryan Iasiello each added RBI hits in the games while Connor Steckel had two hits as well. Walker O'Connor and George Seigel led the pitching staff for the day. Seigel struck out seven batters over his three innings pitched and O'Connor threw three shutout innings in the second game.

Coach Izaryk was pleased with the performance saying, “in our first day of outside competition, we played hard and with intensity. In the first game, we played well enough to win and in the second game, we didn't, plain and simple. Our approach to the game will continue to develop as we build our team identity, and more and more players earn their time on the field. The week of practice leading up to our next games will be important for us, as we need to improve many of the fundamentals of the game. At the end of the day, we played a solid Frozen Ropes team and learned a lot about the make-up of our ball club. We're looking forward to Southern Maine Community College on Wednesday."
