MCS wins in baseball, softball play

By John Bernhardt
Pitching is the art of keeping batters off stride. Effective pitchers mix their pitches, changing speeds and trajectory to interrupt a batter’s timing. That description fit Margaretville’s Kyle Short perfectly Monday as the freshman no-hit South Kortright through five innings. The win was Short’s first varsity start of his career. Margaretville blasted SK, 20-1, in a non-league contest played on the Blue Devils’ home field.

It was an old-fashioned gunfight. The Roxbury and South Kortright girls’ softball teams each had their guns blazing during Monday’s showdown in SK. Neither team blinked when they faced huge deficits, staging come-from-behind rallies. When the smoke cleared, undefeated Roxbury outlasted their hosts, 17-15, and was the last team standing.

Roxbury walks away with win over H-T

Throwing strikes is the first lesson a baseball pitcher must learn. That lesson was lost on Hunter-Tannersville pitchers last week in a game played against Roxbury. H-T pitchers had problems locating the plate and their lack of pitching accuracy was costly. The Wildcats handed out 18 free passes, 17 as walks and one as a hit batsman. Many of those free passes turned into scores as the Rockets plated 14 base runners with only five hits. Roxbury edged Hunter 14-12.

Derek Cowan had an RBI single for the Rockets. Spencer Hinkley had Roxbury’s only extra base hit with a double.

For the past three springs the big spring sports’ story in Sullivan County has been the Livingston Manor Wildcats girls’ softball team.

Actually the team is a merged team bringing together softball talent from both Livingston Manor and Roscoe, but when a merged team performs off the charts, it’s the host school that gains the notoriety.

It didn’t take long.
The Margaretville and Roxbury softball teams ended their Delaware League season last year squaring off against one another in the Crossover Championship game. Mar-garetville won that game to bring home the crown.

The two teams are undefeated in the early going this spring and will bang heads again April 13 in Roxbury. The contest is in an early season showdown that could go a long way in answering which team will be the Delaware League trailblazers in 2011.
