It meant extending their regular season by two days and surviving an epic 19-inning game that took two days to complete, but the Mattituck Tuckers found the extra effort worthwhile.

The sophomore pitched all six innings that were played Friday and came through with his first career home run in the 19th inning, bringing Mattituck a 5-4 triumph and a share of the league championship, half of which belongs to Southampton.

The bus ride from the South Bronx to Mattituck was two hours long, but it might as well have been a world away.

It would be hard to find two more disparate places than the concrete jungle that is the Bronx and the rural open spaces of Mattituck. Pat Claire might understand that better than most people, given his connections to both locations.

New York State will have a new Class B baseball champion.

A state championship can be a fragile thing. It unquestionably takes a wealth of talent to win one, but a team also needs to get hot at the right time. A little luck here and there along the way doesn’t hurt, either.
