STAMPEDE, Aviators Knotted 0 - 0
Jun. 17, 2016
Once again Smithtown bats did not have the necessary oomph and/or timing to propel the team to victory. The Aviators did not get a runner past second base and managed only 1 hit. Starter Jeremy (4 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 4 SO, 1 BB) went the first 4 innings and allowed the lone single in the T2nd. Salvatore relieved the last 3 innings, retiring 6 in a row before a Smithtown miscue allowed a baserunner. He retired 9 out of ten batters faced.
Smithtown had a meager 6 hits, with hot hitter, Nick having a 2 for 3 day to pace the offense. Several times Smithtown had runners in scoring position and did not produce. Salvatore reached on an error in B2nd, stole 2nd and was stranded. Jeremy singled in the 4th and Peter reached on an E5. An errant pickoff throw moved them to 2nd and 3rd with 1 out. Again no runs. Josh singled to open the Smithtown 5th. Franklin bunted him over. A lined smash by Wes to the Aviator 2B was turned into a L6/4 DP. Nick stroked a single to RCF to leadoff the B6th. He stole second, then viewed three strikeouts in a row at the plate.
Smithtown got their best, and final, chance to score B7th. Jay beat out a bouncer and was SAC'd to second by Josh. Franklin hit a lofty liner to CF with the Aviator CF playing very deep. The CF completely lost the ball in the sun, but Jay did not get a good read. Rounding 3rd and heading home, Jay looked to be in the clear as the relay tailed to the 3B side. The Aviator 1B snared it and threw on the run to the plate to nab Jay for the 2nd out. Wes walked to add to the Aviator troubles. Anthony stepped in with 2 outs, but popped out just down the line behind first base to end the game.
