Game 3 Recap
Litchfield took the game and the series on the backs of two other players on Friday night as Kevin Murray pitched into the eighth inning and Joey Serafin (he of what seemed to be 500 pitches over the last week or so) came in and closed things out after pitching a complete game on Wednesday night in the Cowboy’s 3-0 win in game one. The ageless one (Kyle Weaver) had himself a game he certainly will remember fondly for a good long time, it’ll be one to tell the youngsters about years from now when he actually retires. Four singles, a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base to boot. It was his single to center to lead off the bottom of the fourth that helped the Cowboys tie things up at a run apiece. After a perfect sacrifice bunt by Serafin moved him to second, Weaver came around to score on a key, two-out RBI single by Brian Hungerford to short right field. The Cowboys would go ahead for good in the fifth when Steve Harrison scored from second on another timely two-out hit by the champions, this time off the bat of Weaver.
Game 2 Recap
Jordy Scheiner went eight solid innings, giving up two runs on eight hits with six strikeouts and not a single walk. James Cramphin would come in and close the door in a hurry in the ninth, striking out the side in order. Tri-Town took advantage of a first inning error to plate a pair of unearned runs right out of the chute. The Trojans would throw another run on the board in the second and two more came home when catcher Landen Gardella drove a single to center in the fifth, plating Casey McDonald and Michael Fabiaschi for a 5-0 lead.
Game 1 Recap
Litchfield pitcher Joey Serafin had the magic touch Wednesday along with the patience to wait out 14 stranded Cowboy base runners in a 3-0 win over Tri-Town in Game One of the Tri-State Baseball League’s best-of-three championship series. Ed Pequignot, Chris Blazek and Steve Harrison led off the seventh inning with singles, including a perfect bunt by Harrison. With the Litchfield bases loaded for the fourth time, Dylan Clark drew an RBI walk. Tri-Town shortstop Mike Fabiaschi got Blazek at home on a fielder’s choice. Then Litchfield’s Brendan Roden blew the game open with a two-run double to the left field corner. “I was just looking for a pitch up in the zone and I got it,” he said.
