The Arlington High School baseball team picked up a win in unconventional fashion on Friday, beating visiting White Plains, 4-2.
The game was called on account of darkness in the seventh inning when the game was tied 4-4, and reverted back to the fifth inning when Arlington was leading 4-2, according to Admirals coach Darrell Flynn.
“It was a crazy game,” Flynn said. “We had runners on first and third with no out when the game was called due to darkness.”
Joe Assenza was 3 for 4 for the Admirals with one RBI. Austin Zakow made his first varsity start and finished 2 for 3 with a double, a single and a run.
Connor Chuilli pitched five innings and let up one earned run on three hits for Arlington (6-4). He struck out six batters.
Poughkeepsie 9, Peekskill 3 — Lucas Ramos finished 3 for 4 with two runs scored, a double and three steals, as the host Pioneers won.
Cullen O’Shea finished 2 for 4 with two singles, and got out of a bases loaded jam in the sixth inning in relief for Poughkeepsie (3-6).
Starting pitcher Corey Simmons tossed five innings and struck out seven batters. He gave up three hits and walked one batter intentionally.
Our Lady of Lourdes 14, Putnam Valley 14 — Dan Owens was 3 for 3 with an RBI and two runs scored as the Warriors and Tigers played to a tie in a game stopped due to darkness.
Vin Savino was 2 for 3 with two runs scored, two RBI and a stolen base for Lourdes (4-3-1) which hosts Arlington B at 11 a.m. Saturday.
Webutuck 5, Pine Plains 2 — Hunter Coulthard struck out seven and walked one, scattering four hits over seven innings as the host Warriors beat the Bombers.
Nick Reilly drove in three of Webutuck’s runs. He had an RBI single in the first inning and a two-run single in the third inning. Andrew Thrasher added an RBI single for Webutuck (4-1).
John Wheeler struck out eight and walked three for Pine Plains and also had an RBI double.
“We had to gut it out,” Webutuck coach Tim McEnroe said. “John Wheeler is a heck of a good pitcher. We were down 2-0 in the first inning and we had to grind it out and get the win. Clutch hitting by Reilly and clutch pitching by Hunter on a really tough day to pitch. At the beginning of the game, both pitchers were having trouble gripping the ball and the wind was whipping.”
Millbrook 6, Ellenville 3 — Brogan Revay tossed five innings and struck out six while Vincent Granuzzo finished the last two innings to pick up the win.
Jesse Licurse (2 for 3), Jake Wright (2 for 3, RBI), Matt Kyle (1 for 3, RBI) and Wally Cook (1 for 3, RBI) also contributed for Millbrook (5-0).
Roy C. Ketcham 5, John Jay 3 – At Dutchess Stadium late Friday, Greg Blum tossed six innings and gave up three runs for the victorious Indians.
Mike Attebury and Pete Demeglio swatted back-to-back triples for John Jay in the first inning.
“It was a good, clean high school baseball game,” said John Jay coach Eric Frink, whose Patriots dropped to 3-7. “
John Jay will host Mahopac Wednesday while Ketcham will travel to Chappaqua to face Horace Greeley Saturday.
