2015 Plainedge Red Devils

Pugs Goes the Distance, Whalen/Matthews come up big Again!!

Anthony Pugliese took the hill for Plainedge, in the rubber game vs South Side.  Pugliese got off to a bad start, walking the first batter of the game, giving up a bloop infield single, and then walking the 3rd batter of the game.  With no outs, and the bases loaded in the first inning, Pugs would induce 2 consecutive flyouts in the infield, and struck out the 6 hitter to get out of the jam.  Pugliese would allow the leadoff hitter on base in 5 of the 7 innings, but the Red Devils defense would stand tall, making solid plays behind him all game.  Pugs pitched a complete game, allowed only 3 hits, walked 4, hit 1 batter, and struck out 5 for the win.  At the plate Plainedge struggled all game long.  Through the first 5 innings of the game, Plainedge had only 2 hits, and 2 walks.  Leading off the top of the 6th was Anthony Misciagna, who fought off 2 tough 3-2 pitches, and would work a walk for Plainedge.  Pinch Running for Anthony was Jake Shozer, who was almost doubled off at first on Jimmy Mendyk's lineout.  Jake would advance to 2nd base on a throwing error on the double play attempt.  On the very next pitch Richie Whalen hit a double that scored Jake.  Nolan Matthews would hit a single, to score Nick Moir to put Plainedge up 2-0.  Plainedge will begin a 3 game series vs undefeated Levittown Division on Monday at Plainedge HS.

Late Rally Comes Up Short

The Plainedge Red Devils got off to a bad start, allowing 5 runs in the 1st inning.  Matt Shock only last 1/3 of an inning, allowing 5 runs on 1 hit, walking 4 batters and one hit batter.  Jules Imkamp pitched in relief, going 4 2/3 innings, allowing 2 runs on 3 hits, 2 hit batters, and walking 3.  Walks/hit batters is what definitely did Plainedge in, as they allowed 7 total runs, on only 5 hits, 9 walks, and 3 hit batters.  At the plate, Plainedge would cut a 7-2 lead to 7-6 in the top half of the 7th inning, capped off by Vinny Ashentino's 2 run HR.  Plainedge would load the bases up, but couldn't get the hit to tie the game.  Plainedge will look to win the series with Anthony Pugliese taking the hill for Plainedge at Home, this Thursday.  This game is scheduled to start at 4:00.

Plainedge scores 4 in the 7th....Nolan hits Walk Off!!!!

The Plainedge Red Devils opened up a 3 game series vs South Side at Plainedge High School.  Pat Reilly took the hill for Plainedge.  Pat pitched a complete game for Plainedge to earn the win.  Pat gave up 8 hits, walked 1, and struck out 4 batters.  Plainedge entered the bottom of the 7th inning down 3-0.  After Chris Leblanc led the inning off with a walk, Ryan McGrane then hit into a fielders choice.  Anthony Miscianga would then work an 8 pitch walk for Plainedge.  After Jimmy Mendyk hit into a fielders choice, Vinny Ashentino would hit an RBI single to keep the Red Devils alive.  With the score 3-1, Jimmy Mendyk on 2nd base, and Jake Schozer (pinch runner) on first base, Richie Whalen hit a 2 run, game tying double to tie the game at 3.  Nolan Matthews would hit the game winning double off the wall in right center field to score Nick Moir for Plainedge.  Nolan went 3 for 4 in the game.
