This spring’s rain, which wreaked havoc with the baseball schedule in March and April, put a major damper on a baseball playoff game between Mattituck and Center Moriches on Tuesday afternoon.

Their Suffolk County Class B confrontation at Center Moriches High School was suspended just as the bottom of the third inning was to begin due to wet grounds with the score 2-1 in favor of the host side. Light rain had fallen since the opening pitch. (more…)

Jem pitched a gem.

The intense rivalry between the Mattituck and Southampton high school baseball teams has produced some memorable games over the years (including a wild 19-inning game last year that took two days to complete). Jem Sisco added an interesting chapter to that history Saturday when the Southampton pitcher threw a two-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts on his home field. The senior righthander with a dramatically high leg kick, had a no-hitter going through 4 1/3 innings before turning in his first complete game of the season, a 3-0 Suffolk County League VIII triumph.

Just when Joe Wozny was on the verge of doing something special, Southold said no-no to the no-no.

Through six innings Saturday, Southold’s batters couldn’t touch Wozny. The Stony Brook pitcher took a no-hitter into the bottom of the seventh inning at Jean W. Cochran Park in Peconic. Then, the first batter he faced that inning, Brendan Duffy, clobbered a stand-up double over the leftfielder.

Bye, bye no-hitter. READ

Rain, rain, go away. Now they’ll have to play another day.

Two winless high school baseball teams, Southold and Port Jefferson, were hoping to pick up their first win Friday morning, but that meant having to get their game against each other in. So, with an ominous weather forecast, the game’s starting time was pushed up an hour to 9 a.m. in an effort to beat the weather. It helped, but it wasn’t enough. READ
