With the win Vestal will represent District 6 next week at Murnane Field in Utica in the 8 team double elimination NYS American Legion Baseball Championship Tournament. After winning game #1 by a score of 7-2 to force a final game for the title the Green Wave held a slim 2-1 lead through the first 5 innings on Thursday night in game #2 before Vestal erupted for 7 runs highlighted by a 2 run homer from Ryan Kerley. John Mikolaicyk got the Green Wave on the board first with his 2nd homer of the night as he also homered in the first game to make it 1-0. In the 4th inning they added another run to take a 2-0 lead as Teddy McGraw scored on a Caden Clow sacrifice fly ball. Vestal cut the lead in half 2-1 in the top of the 5th inning but the Green Wave executed a perfect relay throw from right fielder Kyle Kurkowski to McGraw to catcher Cameron Neer to cut down the tying run and maintain their slim 2-1 lead. However, Vestal exploded for 7 runs in the top of the 6th inning to put an end to one of the greatest seasons in Green Wave history.

MACINERNEY AND MIKOLAICYK DOMINATE LEADING GREEN WAVE TO DISTRICT TITLE GAME
On a very comfortable Wednesday afternoon at Conlon Field dominant pitching was in true form for the Green Wave as they won a pair of games to advance to the 2018 District 6 Championship Game behind stellar complete game performances on the mound from John Mikolaicyk and Sean MacInerney. In the opening game the Green Wave erupted late to eliminate Hillcrest-1194 by a 7-2 score as Mikolaicyk allowed only 3 hits, walked 5 and struck out 10 as Hillcrest had few answers for his dominating fastball. The Green Wave broke open a tight 1-0 game putting up a 5 spot in the bottom of the 5th inning to make it 6-0. After scoring an unearned run to make it 2-0, Tanner Beang ripped an RBI single, Teddy McGraw had an RBI double and Keaton Mark and Mikolaicyk each followed with sacrifice flies in 4 successive at bats that gave Mikolaicyk more then enough support to notch the win raising his record to (4-1) on the season. Beang and Andrew Shapiro led the attack with a pair of hits each against Hillcrest. In the 2nd game the Green Wave rolled past Binghamton-1645 in the loser's bracket final by a score of 9-0 as MacInerney tossed a brilliant 3 hit shutout walking 4 and striking out 7 to propel the Green Wave into the district title game while raising his record to (4-1) on the season. MacInerney breezed from start to finish allowing only 1 runner to reach 3rd base but that runner was erased very quickly in the bottom of the 3rd inning as catcher, Dalton Carver and 3rd baseman, Teddy McGraw pulled off a sensational play as Carver caught the runner at 3rd base napping as McGraw snuck in for the tag out on Carver's throw to the bag that ended the only real offensive threat that Binghamton-1645 had all game. Caden Clow got the Green Wave ahead 1-0 in the 2nd inning as his RBI single scored Shapiro. In the 3rd inning the Green Wave broke it open with 5 runs as Shapiro delivered the key hit, a clutch 2 out 2 RBI double to deep center field. Shapiro who finished with 2 hits and 4 RBI with 3 runs scored had the key 2 RBI single in the 7th inning to put the game well out of reach. McGraw, Mikolaicyk, Ryan Packard and Kyle Kurkowski all finished with a pair of hits to highlight the 15 hit Green Wave offensive attack. The Green Wave (28-12) will play Vestal-89 on Thursday night at 6:00pm at Conlon Field in the district title game. Vestal-89 is undefeated in the tournament so the Green Wave has to beat them twice Thursday night to win the 2018 district title. If Vestal loses the first game then the final game will be played 30 minutes after completion of game 1.
GREEN WAVE ADVANCE WITH TOUGH 5-3 WIN AGAINST POST 80
The Green Wave continued on in the district tournament as they outlasted Binghamton Post 80 in an elimination game 5-3 on Monday afternoon at Conlon Field. Post 80 was the regular season champion and #1 overall seed but Teddy McGraw outdueled the Post 80 ace on the mound as he threw 5.2 innings allowing only 3 runs, 2 earned, walking 4 and striking out 7 to notch the win. Sean MacInerney relieved McGraw in fine fashion in a pressure filled spot getting a huge strikeout to end the 6th inning and then pitched a perfect 7th inning to record the save and eliminate the top seed. The Green Wave jumped on the board early plating 3 runs in the top of the 1st inning as Tanner Beang led off with a walk and 3 successive clutch 2 out base hits gave the Green Wave a 3-0 early lead. John Mikolaicyk scored Beang with a double, Dalton Carver scored Mikolaicyk with a single and Andrew Shapiro capped the huge opening inning scoring Carver on a double. Carver, who finished with a pair of hits to pace the Green Wave attack had another RBI single in the 3rd inning to make it 4-1 but Post 80 chipped away with a pair of runs to pull within 4-3. But in the top of the 5th inning Keaton Mark delivered the key hit of the game to end the Post 80 momentum as he blasted a solo homer to right to give the Green Wave a 5-3 lead and McGraw and MacInerney took care of the rest on the mound advancing them to loser's bracket semi-final. On Tuesday the Green Wave (26-12) will play Hillcrest-1194 at 12:00pm back at Conlon Field.
POST 1645 HOLDS OFF GREEN WAVE 5-4 IN DISTRICTS
Binghamton Post 1645 jumped out to an early 4-0 lead after one inning and barely hung on as they dodged a Green Wave comeback on Sunday night at Conlon Field winning 5-4 sending the Green Wave to the loser's bracket of the double elimination tournament. Trailing 4-0, the Green Wave responded in the top of the 2nd inning as Andrew Shapiro drilled an RBI double and scored shortly later on a Post 1645 error cutting the deficit to 4-2. Post 1645 countered with a run in the bottom of the 2nd inning to take a 5-2 lead but the Green Wave kept battling tallying 2 runs in the top of the 5th inning to make it 5-4 but could never get that tying run the rest of the way. In the 5th inning, Tanner Beang led off and was hit by a pitch and Teddy McGraw followed with a single then with 1 out John Mikolaicyk blasted an RBI double scoring Beang and McGraw scored a batter later on a Dalton Carver sacrifice fly ball but the Green Wave could get no closer. McGraw finished with a pair of hits to pace the offense. Ryan Packard pitched the complete game performance on the mound suffering the tough luck loss as he settled down after a rocky 1st inning and pitched brilliantly the rest of the way finishing with 8 strikeouts. The Green Wave (25-12) will now have to climb through the loser's bracket if they are to win the district title. They play Binghamton Post 80 at 1:00pm on Monday back at Conlon Field.
BEANG DOMINATES HILLCREST IN DISTRICT OPENER
Tanner Beang tossed a 3 hit, complete game gem leading the Green Wave to a tight 2-1 win vs Hillcrest-1194 in the opener of the 2018 District 6 Tournament on a hot Saturday afternoon at Conlon Field. Beang allowed a run in the top of the 1st inning to Hillcrest on 2 hits that inning but settled in quickly and allowed only 1 other hit the remaining 6 scoreless innings. He finished with 8 strikeouts and did not walk a batter as he commanded the zone with precision all afternoon long with his fastball and off speed stuff. The Green Wave quickly erased the 1-0 deficit as they tallied their only 2 runs in the bottom of the 1st inning as Beang led off with a line drive single up the middle and advanced to 2nd base on a Hillcrest passed ball. Teddy McGraw then followed with a fly ball to right field that was dropped enabling Beang to score and tie the game. Keaton Mark then blasted an RBI double to the left center field gap scoring McGraw which gave Beang all the support he would need to preserve a tight 2-1 victory. Mark was the only multiple hitter finishing with a pair of hits. The tournament continues tomorrow as the night game was rained out this evening between Binghamton-1645 and Johnson City, that game will be played at 9:00am tomorrow morning.
