Whalers Salvage Tough Week

Posted on 26 June 2014

Sag Harbor earned a much-needed win Sunday, beating Shelter Island 3-2 to snap a two-game losing streak. With the game tied at 2 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Zach Piazza (Wake Forest) hit a single over the drawn-in infield to bring home the winning run.

Lefty Jamie Young (Limpscomb) tossed three no-hit innings in relief to pick up the win for Sag Harbor, which earlier in the week lost 4-2 to Montauk on Thursday, June 19, and 7-4 to the North Fork on Friday, June 20.

As of Tuesday, the Whalers had dropped into fourth place in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League standings with a record of 9-8. Riverhead was just one game ahead in first place at 10-7.

The Whalers, who on Wednesday were scheduled to honor the Pierson High School baseball and softball teams, both of which qualified for the state semifinals this year, will once again play a full slate of games in the week ahead starting on Friday, June 27, at Montauk. The Whalers will host Riverhead on Saturday at Mashashimuet Park at 2 p.m. and then travel to Shelter Island for a 5 p.m. game on Sunday.
