Game 1 saw Adam Maher deliver another stellar performance on the mound in a 7-2 win over a tough Evolution 3N2 team on Monday. Maher threw a complete game 3 hitter, allowing only 1 earned run while punching out 7. Cam Harthan led the offense with 2 hits, one a triple plating 3. RJ Fatorma, Tommy Sullivan, Mike Uriati, Maher and Jack Kriz also had hits.
Game 2 saw the Blue team have to come from behind to the scrappy Western Mass Rebels winning 7-6, scoring 6 of those in the last 3 innings. Cam Harthan would shine on both sides, shutting the Rebels down in the final two innings and giving his team a chance, while pounding out 3 hits, 2 for doubles. Chase Pariseau, Sean Gallagher and Sullivan all had 2 hit games as part of a 14 hit attack, while Alex Stec, Brycen Tetler, Fatorma, Uriati and Kriz chipped in.
Game 3 also had the Blue team coming from an early deficit, eventually scoring 2 in the bottom of the 5th in a rain shortened affair to take the 7-5 win over the Middlesex Reds. Uriati was the key in this game, coming in relief early in wet weather and shutting the door, allowing only a run over 5 wet innings of work. Harthan had another big triple, while Stec, Tetler (2 RBI), Pariseau, Gallagher and Kriz (2 RBI) led the offense.
The offense was quieted with only 2 hits by Tetler and Maher in Game 4, as the boys lost 5-0 to a tough East Coast Eagles White team to take them out of contention. A tough lefty punched out 8 Blue hitters. Sullivan threw 5 innings on the mound, giving up only 4 hits and striking out 4 but the outing not enough. The Eagles rolled through the playoffs as well losing only in the Championship game.
