The 15u Blue and 15u White teams knocked heads Wednesday in preparation for the SuperEast 15/16u College Exposure Tournament in Hartford CT this weekend. Should be a great experience for the boys as college coaches will be in the dugouts and conduct a showcase style workout for BP and IO...in addition to 3 games against quality opponents.
The 15u Blue team erased a 5-1 deficit in the bottom of the 7th by scoring 4 times to end the game in a 5-5 tie. This is the second consecutive game the Blue team showed grit by never giving up when down...sign of a good team.
The White team was led by Conor Kelly, with a couple of base hits and Joe Scrofani with a big 2 run single. Trey Young, Matt Durkin, Sean Lozier and Matt Talabac also contributed with hits. Ben Fargo led the way on the bump allowing only 3 hits and giving up no runs over 4 innings. Lozier came in for the 7th after the Blue team plated 4, to shut the door, striking out 2. Kelly also threw well allowing only a run over 2 innings.
The Blue team struggled hitting but showed great plate discipline, with only 6 hits but a couple of big ones. RJ Fatorma had a 2 run single and Adam Maher doubled in a big run in the 7th. Alex Stec, Mike Uriati, Cam Harthan and Brycen Tetler contributed with singles as well.
