Acadians Bounced by New York
The Acadian Senior League All-Star team were knocked out of the double elimination Senior League East Tournament by New York on Saturday afternoon, July 23rd, losing by the score of 11-1 in a 10 run shortened game.
New York scored 1 run in the top of the 1st, 7 runs in the top of the 2nd and then 2 more runs in the top of the 3rd to take a 10-0 lead before the Acadians were able to push 1 run across in the bottom of the 3rd.
In the bottom of the 3rd, Finn McConomy walked to start the inning. Nick Stanley and Alden Fournier each singled to load the bases. Jacob Mitchell reached on a fielder's choice with McConomy out at the plate. Andrew Kennedy lined out to the shortstop for the 2nd out and then Matt Perconti singled, driving in Stanley. Drew Shea flew out to right field for the final out of the inning.
In the top of the 4th, New York added another run to make the score 11-1. Maine was not able to push across another run and so the game ended after 5 innings as a result of the 10 run rule.
The Acadians were limited to just 3 hits in the game, with singles by Nick Stanley, Alden Fournier and Parker Shortell.
Matt Perconti started the game for Maine on the mound and pitched 2 innings allowing 11 hits, 8 runs, all earned and walking 1 while striking out 2. Parker Shortell didn't record an out in the 3rd inning, allowing 2 runs, all earned while walking 3. Derek Collin pitched the final 3 innings for the Acadians allowing just 1 run, on 3 hits and struck out 4.
The Acadians were able to enjoy their off day yesterday, traveling to Baltimore to see the Orioles defeat the Cleveland Indians at Camden Yards.
