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.

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.
