Heartbreak for the ‘Cats as they fall 1-0 in 15 innings to Walpole

It was a battle of the aces as Milton threw Sam Jacobsak and Walpole threw their best pitcher as well, Brian Gaughan. Jacobsak went 6 innings, giving up no runs. Gaughan threw for 9 innings, striking out 19 Wildcats in the process. Declan Driscoll pitched a full game at “mid-relief”, twice getting out of innings with the bases loaded. He was lights out when it counted. Milton’s defense was also stellar, with Dan Debenedictis snatching a line drive that could have easily been extra bases, and Tim Peterson making some great catches in Center-field.

In the top of the 12th, with runners on 1st and 2nd, Driscoll bobbled a grounder back to him. After collecting himself, he threw too high to 1st base. Sam Jacobsak kept the errant throw in the field of play with a huge leap. And then, with some tremendous baseball IQ, approached the runner who had rounded 1st. As he chased down the runner, the runner on third took off for home, and he threw him out at the plate, with a great catch and tag from Nolan McManus.

In the bottom of the inning, Anthony Goncalves laid down a great bunt, and then took second on a pass ball. McManus then earned an infield hit with some great base-running from Goncalves. They ended up leaving the runners on base with a fly out.

After loading the bases in the 15th, Walpole scored on a tag up, with a fly out to left-field. Milton could not answer in the bottom half, even with a lead-off double from Laine.

It was a great game by both sides.

Wildcats Baseball downs the Raiders 3-2 in 12 innings

Senior Starting Pitcher Andrew Steele threw 7 scoreless innings, allowing 3 hits, 1 walk, and striking out 7. After 7 scoreless innings, the Wildcats fell behind 2-0 in the top of the eighth.  In the bottom half of the 8th, Milton tied the game on a Sam Jacobsak sacrifice fly and Max Walker double.  Tied 2-2 after 8, Declan Driscoll held Wellesley hit-less for four innings, setting the Wildcats up for a chance to win it in the 12th.  In the bottom of the 12th, Nolan McManus lead off the inning with a double to right center.  He took third base on a pitch in the dirt.  Sam Jacobsak then singled through the hole between the first and second baseman to knock in McManus.

Great win for the boys as they improve to 1-1. They will look to carry the momentum to tomorrow’s game vs Newton North.
