Jason Antalek needed only 59 pitches in a complete game to lead host Beacon High School over the Arlington B baseball team, 4-2, on Thursday.
The lefthander allowed four hits and struck out three in seven innings. He threw 17 first-pitch strikes and recorded 10 first-pitch outs of the 25 batters faced.
“The changeup got him a lot of groundball outs,” Beacon coach Bob Atwell said. “It was an incredible performance, and quick. Our game was done before the softball team, and that doesn’t happen very often.”
Antalek also went 2 for 3 with an RBI. Declan Costello, Brendon Malouf and Justin Conklin each drove in a run for the Bulldogs (3-1-1).
Conklin’s sacrifice fly scored Keyshawn Espinal to give Beacon a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning.
“In addition to the pitching performance, we played great defense,” Atwell said. “It’s nice to beat a quality program like Arlington.”
Beacon visits Brewster at 4:30 p.m. Monday.

Red Hook pulled within 4-3 in the seventh, scoring on a groundout with the bases loaded. But New Paltz second baseman Michael Kenney made a diving stop on the grounder to prevent a hit. With two outs, reliever Chris Massaro induced a pop-up to end the game.
Huguenots coach Sam Phelps earned his 100th career win.
“It means I’ve had the privilege of coaching some great kids in this school district,” said Phelps, in his ninth season at New Paltz. “I’ve been fortunate to have some good players.”
Red Hook’s Nick Hunziker was injured in the second inning and taken by ambulance to Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital, Phelps said. “I’ve been in touch with (Red Hook coach Mike McCrudden) and he told me Nick is doing better and he was up and alert.”
