Fairfield Owls beat Fairfield Rage North 7-6

The Fairfield Owls overcame a very solid Fairfield Rage North Team and some very controversial calls. The Owls came out in the first inning and drew first blood. Ian Duffy got on base with a walk then the Owls “Stud” short stop Michael Kochiss ripped a double into the gap scoring Duffy.
Michael Defilippis took the hill for the Owls, keeping the Rage batters in check giving up 3 hits, and one earned run thru 5 innings. The 6th inning is when things went a little crazy for the Owls. The Rage started off the bottom of the sixth inning with slow dribbler by PJ Defilipo that got him on first. Then the Rage #3 hitter Zumbo singled and the runners advanced on a pass ball. Then the fun began, the Rage #4 hitter walked as he was taking his base, the Owls catcher Kyle Mollo fired down to third base clearly picking off Defilipo. Neither one of the umpires was watching the play, the second base umpire was talking with the Rage base runner at second and the home plate umpire wasn’t watching third base. Arguments from the Owls coaching staff ensued but with no resolution. The Home plate ump said “he didn’t see it”. The Owls coach Jeff Love asked him “what could have been so important that the second base umpire was not watching and talking to the runner that he took his eye off the game as the batter took his base”? With bases loaded and no outs the Rage’s Rodriguez singled to left field scoring Defilipo. Love decided it was time for a pitching change after the Rage had bases loaded and climbed within 2 runs of the Owls. The Owls Tommy Whitlock came in with the house on fire, no outs and base loaded, Whitlock got the # 6 hitter to hit into a fielder’s choice, scoring Zumbo. Whitlock got the next batter to ground out to Kochiss scoring Monaco and tying the game. Then Whitlock got the next batter to ground out to third base, with Taylor Carelli making a great scoop throwing him out at first base.
The drama continued for the Fairfield Owls in the top of the 7th. The Owls had the top of the order up with a game tied 5-5. Michael Foley led off with a single into the gap. Ian Duffy got up and hit a grounder to the Rages second baseman, he bobbled the ball but with Duffy’s speed he reached first on an error charged to the second baseman. Then the Owls Kochiss got up and hit a shot over the center fielders head scoring Foley and getting Duffy to third. The speedy Ryan Jacob came into pinch run for Kochiss at second. Then more fun began, Kyle Mollo hits a grounder to the Rage’s short stop getting him to throw him out at first, but Jacob got hung up between second and third thinking Duffy was going home on the throw. Jacob got caught up in a run down and Duffy went home with a perfect slide under the tag, except the umpire called him out. This definitely fired the Owls up, with 2 outs the Owls Whitlock hit a grounder in between first and the mound, Whitlock beat out the play scoring Jacob. Whitlock took the mound in the bottom of the 7th with a 7-5 lead. He made it very interesting for the fans and the coaching staff of the Owls. The number 9 hitter started the inning off with a single. Whitlock got the #10 hitter to fly out to Foley in center field. Then the Rage had the top of the order up with a runner on. The # 1 hitter grounded back to the pitcher advancing the runner to scoring position. The #2 hitter hit a chopper to Kochiss that took a bad hop on the cement infield at Veterans Park, causing Kochiss to bobble the ball allowing the run to score. Now the tying run on first and the Rage’s # 3 hitter up, Whitlock got him to pop up to Matt Montani in right field giving Whitlock and the Owls the win!! Whitlock did a great job coming in and closing out the Rage he only gave up one hit and no earned runs in 2 innings. After the game Love told the team “he loved the intensity and the way they keep fighting back”. The Owls next game is at Warde HS against the Stamford legion Prep

CT State Champions U14 Sandy Koufax

Waterbury CT-The Fairfield Owls defeated the Overlook Black Sox (Waterbury) 5-2 in 10 innings to win the CT U14 Sandy Koufax State Championship on Sunday at Municipal Stadium in Waterbury, CT. The tournament was hosted by the Waterbury Connie Mack League July 8-11. Nine teams from across Connecticut competed in a double elimination format for the top spot in the state.

With excellent starting pitching performances by Mike Defillipis, Kyle Mollo, and Mike Kochiss and superb relief pitching by Tommy Whitlock, Mike Poudrier, Brendan Sullivan and Anthony Miller, the Owls finished the weekend with a 5-1 record as the Connecticut state champions. Ian Duffy, Ryan Jacob, Mike Foley and Taylor Carelli contributed clutch hitting in key at bats to get the Owls to the championship game.

To make it to the championship game Sunday afternoon, the Owls were forced to play their final elimination game Sunday morning vs. the U14 team from Guilford winning 8-7 in the bottom of the 7th with a walk-off hit from Mike Poudrier. Mike Defillipis pitched 5 solid innings to lead the Owls to a victory against Guilford.

Kyle Mollo pitched 10 innings for a complete game to win the championship and advance the Owls to the Sandy Koufax North Atlantic Regional Tournament which will be held in Troy, NY this coming weekend July 15th- 18th.

“Our starters pitched great and went deep into games,” said Michael Miller, manager of the Owls. “Playing 10 innings in the championship game against a strong team with no errors speak volumes about how focused our defense was.”

In the championship game the Owls came out aggressively against the 3-1 Black Sox, and scored 2 runs in the first inning. Ian Duffy started off the inning with his red-hot bat, singling off the Black Sox ace Tom Rinaldi. Duffy stole second and with a single by Mike Kochiss went on to score the first run. A stolen base by Kochiss put another run in scoring position. Pitcher Kyle Mollo singled, scoring Kochiss to put the Owls up 2-0, where the score remained until the 4th inning.

Mollo took the mound and led the Owl’s defense with 9 up and 9 down in the first 3 innings against a very hard hitting Overlook Black Sox team. “Kyle was focused and in a groove and the field was playing excellent basic baseball,” said Jeff Love, the Owl’s Pitching Coach. In the bottom of the 4th inning, the lead-off batter was awarded first base after a controversial hit-by-pitch call. The 2, 3 and 4 hitters for the Black Sox all singled scoring 2 runs to tie the game in the 4th. Superb pitching and solid defense by both clubs held the score to 2-2 until the top of the 10th. Mollo retired 19 consecutive batters with great Owl’s defense. Catcher Mike Poudrier was a force behind the plate. Key plays were made by every position in the field, including a line drive catch by Mike Foley at third base, several hard stops by shortstop Mike Kochiss and 2nd baseman Anthony Miller, key grabs by first baseman Taylor Carelli, and outstanding catches by the outfielders, Ian Duffy, Ryan Jacob, and Tom Whitlock. Mike Defilippis contributed in right field and utility player Brendan Sullivan came out strong at the plate.

The Owls offense sparked in the top of the 10th. Mike Foley led off the inning with an infield single to 3rd. His speed on the bases allowed him 2 stolen bases. Ian Duffy singled but Foley was held on 3rd base. With a single by Mike Kochiss, Foley scored the go-ahead run as Duffy slid into third. A stolen base put Kochiss on 2nd and the Black Sox intentionally walked Mollo to load the bases. Mike Poudrier ground into a fielder’s choice, forcing Duffy out at home. Taylor Carelli singled left field to tack on 2 insurance runs and that was all the Owls needed to win. Mollo closed out the game in the bottom of the tenth with a 1-2-3 inning to end the championship game 5-2 in favor of the Fairfield Owls.

“I am so proud of these guys, they have worked hard all season for this and the hard work paid off. They are champions.” said Tyrone Kingwood, Owl’s head coach.

The Fairfield Owls started playing baseball together 4-5 years ago as National Little League All-Stars and with a few additions have grown into the championship U14 team it is today. “After Little League we wanted to prepare our boys for stronger competition so we joined forces with Glenn Katz, the owner of Integrated Sports Training (IST) out of Norwalk. We wanted to provide the boys the opportunity to take their game to the next level and the way to do that was through professional coaching and the use of IST’s indoor training facility,” said Owls manager, Michael Miller. Katz, who played college baseball for UConn prior to being drafted by the Tampa Bay Rays helped the team connect with professional coaches Tyrone Kingwood, Jeff Love and Doug Vroman. Head coach, Kingwood, from Bridgeport was selected by the Montreal Expos in the1st Round (28th overall) of 1987 amateur entry draft, and played professionally for 7 years. Jeff Love, the pitching coach, played for St John’s and then went to the St Louis Cardinals and Houston Astros and played professionally for 8 years. Assistant Coach, Doug Vroman was drafted by the Montreal Expos in 2003 and spent 4 seasons with the Montreal Expos/ Washington Nationals.

The Fairfield Owls will be playing July 15-18th in Troy, NY for the Sandy Koufax North Atlantic Regional Championship and a chance to advance to Arizona to compete against regional champions from across the United States.

If Gallerga can accept he didn't get a perfect game in the book, Gersty can to. In our hearts he hit for the cycle!!

The Owls took the final game in pool play with an exciting come-from-behind victory against a very strong Americas Gamers team. Mike Defilippis pitched 4 strong innings with 6 strikeouts and allowed only 2 earned runs. Mike Poudrier came in for relief and allowed only 1 earned run with 4 strikeouts. The entire Owls offense exploded in the bottom of the 6th to rally for the 8-7 win.

Tommy Whitlock pitched 6 solid innings with only 2 earned runs and 8 hits in 6 innings. Relief pitcher, Mike Poudrier came in for the 7th inning and the Dirt Dogs tied up the score with some hard hit balls that forced the game into extra innings. With California tournament rules in play for extra innings, Anthony Miller started on 2nd base for the Owls and stole third on a failed pick-off attempt. The go-ahead run scored by Miller on a sac fly by Whitlock which put the Owls up by one in the top of the 8th. Poudrier took the mound in the bottom of the eighth with a runner on second. The Dirt Dogs squeezed the runner to 3rd with a sac bunt. The next batter hit up the middle but with a diving stop the Owl’s shortstop, Michael Kochiss, was able to make the throw to home from his knees as Kyle Mollo, the catcher for the Owls, made the tag for the second out. The game ended in victory for the Owls with a fly out to right which allowed the Owls to advance to the semi final round.

The Owls had to play their third game of the day against the Overlook Black Sox, the number 4 seed. The Owls played tight defense and had another solid pitching performance from Taylor Carelli. Carelli pitched a complete game, giving up 4 earned runs and 11 hits in 7 innings.

The Fairfield Owls were led to the semi-finals by Coach Tyrone Kingwood and Coach Jeff Love. Team manager, Michael Miller commented, “We asked the boys to play 6 games in 3 days. Our last 3 games were played on Monday in excess of 95 degree heat. Our players came to the field focused and gave 110% in miserably hot conditions. You can’t ask for anything more. We are proud of these guys. They never rolled over. They fought until the bitter end.” Over the 3 days all of the Owls contributed in some way to help the team get to the semifinals. Mike Foley had 6 runs and 4 stolen bases before missing the last game because of the heat. The speed of Ian Duffy and Ryan Jacob combined for 13 stolen bases.
