2015

Playing to stave off elimination from the finals and with John Kosmowsky (Kos) on the mound, the Marlins fell behind by three runs in the bottom of the first against the Mariners due to some poor fielding as all three runs were unearned.  With two outs in the top of the 3rd, the Marlins returned the favor and took advantage of an error, two walks and five hits to push across six unearned runs against Gabe Mastrangelo and crew.  The big blow came when Drew White drove in two runs and that was followed with RBI singles by Steve Degnan and Donnie Davis. 

     In the top of the 5th a single by Dave Baril got it started and he was sacrificed to second by Joe Basara.  A balk and a wild pitch later the Marlins picked up what turned into the winning run.  The Marlins tacked on another run in the 6th with a single by Drew White and after Tommy Donahue ran for Drew he was able to steal third base and score on Rich Swan's RBI single.  Meanwhile, in the bottom of the 8th the Mariners made it interesting when they tallied three runs on four hits, a walk and a HBP.  Don Sachau crushed a run scoring double to left in that frame but it was too little too late.  Neither team scored in the 9th and the game was won by the Marlins 8-6.  John Kosmowsky was the winning pitcher and he allowed 10 hits and six runs while walking three and fanning 4.  Drew White, Steve Degnan and Dave Baril all had two hits for the Marlins while Dan Laudisio and Don Sachau had two hits while scoring two runs each.


     After a 30 minute break, the Marlins took the field as the home team with Gary Lebo on the hill.  The Mariners got off to a quick start with both Joe Santone and Gabe Mastrangelo scoring on a booming two run double to deep left field by hurler Mike Pente.  Who knew at that time that that would be the end of the scoring on this day for the Mariners.  The Marlins returned to the dugout optimistic as we have given up ONLY two runs since in the previous two games, we had allowed the Mariners to score three times in the first innings!

We immediately scored two runs as Dave Harris led off with a hard hit ball to third that ate up Mike Fanelli and that was followed by a blast by Tommy Donahue that put runners at 2nd and 3rd with no outs.  Drew White immediately drove in one with a deep sacrifice fly to center and Donnie Davis picked up Donahue with a run scoring single.  Now it became essentially a six inning game.  After Lebo set the Mariners down 1-2-3 in the top of the 2nd, Dave Baril led off with a single to center.  Gary Rodriguez followed and he blasted a shot deep over the center fielder's head for a double.  Pente retired the next two batters and it looked like he might escape a second and third with no outs.  However, Steve Gaunay wasn't to be denied as he slapped a two run single to right to raise the score to 4-2 in favor of the Marlins.  In the bottom of the 5th Tommy Donahue led off the inning with a single and after moving to second on a fielder's choice he scored when Steve Degnan took an outside pitch and sent it to right field for the final score of the season. 

In the top of the 7th Joe Santone crushed another double but that was their last hurrah as he was left stranded on second when the game ended 5-2 in favor of the Marlins.  Gary Lebo was the winning pitcher and he gave up only 4 hits while striking out three and walking three.  Both Tom Donahue and Steve Degnan had two hits and Donahue scored twice for the Marlins.  Donahue, Degnan and GRod had doubles to help the cause.  Joe Santone had two hits including a double while Mike Pente and Steve Palumbo doubled in the loss.  Outstanding defensive plays were made in the outfield of both teams as Donnie Davis and Steve Degnan tracked down some well hit balls as did Steve Palumbo of the Mariners.

Montgomery County Yankees Capture SJMSBL 52+ Title

 

The Montgomery County Yankees, managed by Mark Greenspan, claimed the 2016 South Jersey MSBL 52+ Division Championship by sweeping the top-seeded South Jersey/Lenape Phillies (16-3-1) in the finals, 14-9 and 6-2. The Yankees (15-3-1) entered the playoffs as the #2-seed after closing out the regular season with 6 wins and a tie in their final 7 games, edging out the South Jersey/Camden County Phillies (13-3-0) for a first-round playoff bye by three percentage points. The Yankees then advanced to the finals by eliminating the defending-champion Gloucester Township Orioles, 8-4, in the semifinals.

 

Game of one of the finals saw the Yankees jump out to a 6-1 lead in the top of the third inning, with Marc Gold and Tony D'Aulerio each smacking 2-run doubles, before the Phillies rallied with 4 runs in the bottom of the third, another run in the fifth and 3 more in the sixth to take a 9-7 lead. David Viviani's 2-run single in the third started the Phillies' rally, while Jack Beck contributed RBI singles in both the third and sixth innings. But the Yankees responded with 4 runs in the seventh - the key hit being a Tom Koelzer bases-loaded, 2-run double - to retake the lead, and added 3 more in the ninth - the big hit being a Tom Gallagher bases-loaded, 2-run single - to ice the win. Jeff Budin (8-1) picked up the win on the mound, while Jamie Heldring pitched a stellar final 3 innings to earn the save.

 

Game two of the finals started out similar to the opener with the Phillies scoring in the top of the first on an RBI single by Miguel Cartagena, and the Yankees responding with 2 in the home half of the inning to take a 2-1 lead. But pitching would dominate the next 5 1/2 innings as the Yankees' Gallagher and the Phillies' Luis Rodriguez would allow only one run apiece over that span. A Joe Lynn RBI double in the bottom of the fourth pushed the Yankees' lead to 3-1, before Julio Vigo tripled to lead off the top of the fifth and scored on Mike Chmielewski's RBI single, closing the gap to a single run again at 3-2. But Gallagher (9-1), the league's Cy Young award winner, would allow only one more base runner to reach second base the rest of the way, in going the distance on the mound, while the Yankees added an insurance run in the seventh when Greenspan singled with two outs, stole second and scored on D'Aulerio's RBI single. The Yankees closed out the scoring with 2 more in the eighth. The first coming when Koelzer, the league's MVP award winner, singled, stole second, moved to third on an infield groundout and scored on a fielder's choice, and the final run on an RBI single by Budin.

 

During the playoffs, the Yankees' offense was paced by D'Aulerio, who went 9-for-11 with 6 RBI and 6 runs scored, including 6-for-7 in the finals with 4 RBI and 5 runs scored. Craig Stein was 5-for-11 in the playoffs with 3 RBI and 3 runs scored, while Koelzer was 4-for-9 with 5 RBI and 4 runs scored.

 

The league championship was the Yankees' first since 2012, when they were part of the Tri-State MSBL (now the John A. DeBenedictis League), but the 12th league championship in their 26-year history, as they won 6 Montgomery County MSBL championships (1994-1999) and 4 Bux-Mont MSBL championships (2005, 2006, 2007 & 2010).

 Awards will be presented @ the Annual Hot Stover Banquet. Saturday November 26 @ 2:00 @ The Estate at Monroe  Expected Attendance @ Banquet is in excess of 300.
