15s Capture PG Super25 Championship

Ben Reyes Delivers for 15s

The 15U Ruffnecks surprised everyone during the 17U New England PG Super25 championships (yes the 17U), when they not only won their pool, but fought through a 4-3 extra inning loss in the playoffs to the eventual champions on Sunday, June 26.  With no break in the action, the 15s got right back on the field Monday, June 27th in the 15U New England PG Super25 event.  In fact, the team had to play two games on Monday and two on Tuesday to win their pool.  They then played two more on Wednesday, June 29 to take the title!  Coaches Jones, Howard, and Calagione worked the lineups and pitching expertly to cruise to a 4-0 record in pool play, earning the top seed in the playoffs.  After a 6-1 semifinal victory, the Ruffnecks took care of securing the championship with a convincing 7-0 shutout behind a complete game from RHP Jeff Price.  Indeed, the squad’s pitching and defense dominated the event.  In six games the Ruffnecks surrendered at total of 4 runs.  The team secured three shutouts on the road to the title.

The pitching staff of Jackson Emus, Ben Reyes, Teddy Goss, Josh Gruenberg, Seamus Barrett, Ben Mlavsky, Jeff Price, Jaylen Bailey, were supported by several “pitch in” appearances by position players to bolster the team’s effort.  Offensively, the Ruffnecks were outstanding as well.  In four of the games the team scored 6 runs or more.  Congratulations to the 15U Ruffnecks… New England PG Super25 Champions.  With no rest, the team travels to Nashville Thursday, June 30th to compete in the 16U Music City Classic.

Senior Ruffnecks On Southern Swing

14s Celebrate No Hitter

The Senior Ruffnecks started a 16 day road trip with competition at the Music City Classic in Nashville, TN.  The squad split its first two games on Thursday, June 23rd with a 2-4 loss in the afternoon, and a win over the Midland (Ohio) Braves 6-2 under the lights at Vanderbilt University.  Three Rufnecks pitchers combined to throw in the 6-2 win.  Neither of the runs allowed were earned.  Lefthander Owen Batchelder showed good command and worked out of trouble against a competitive lineup.  Henry Ennen pitched well off of an effective fastball.  Dylan Presnal controlled the strike zone and mixed his pitches to keep the opponents off balance. Offensively, the Ruffnecks were paced by a key bases loaded RBI sacrifice fly from Taylor Beckett.  Robbie Cronin also delivered and RBI single.

15s and 16s Compete in 17U PG Super25

Back at home, the 15U and 16U Ruffnecks began the 17U PG Super25 with 4-2 and 6-0 victories (respectively).  Riley Teevens was dominant in the opener for the 16U Ruffnecks, pitching a complete game shutout, giving up 2 hits, striking out 9 and walking none.  Josh  Gruenberg and Jackson Emus combined for the 15U Ruffnecks 4-2 win.  The 16U Ruffnecks dropped their second game 4-0, unfortunately losing Kai Marcos for the summer to an injury.

14U Ruffnecks Roll Behind Schneider No Hitter
