Cavs Fall Short in New England Tourney

Boys varsity baseball

Harvey’s baseball team was in the game until their final at-bat but a four-run first inning by Greenwich Country Day School proved to be all the host Tigers needed Wednesday, May 22, as the Cavaliers fell 4-2 to end their hopes of playing for a New England Small Schools Championship.

Harvey’s Jack Amann was the hard-luck losing pitcher who had a rough first inning but then settled down to shut down GCDS the rest of the way. Of the four runs scored against him in the opening inning, only two were earned as the Cavs’ defense committed two errors behind their pitcher. Amann allowed only four hits in the game and did not walk a batter. He struck out four.

“I can’t say enough about the performance of Jack Amann,” Harvey coach Ray Lacen said. “After giving up four runs in the first inning he could have folded and lost focus. Instead, he dug deep and absolutely controlled the GCDS Tigers the rest of the way.”

Down 4-0 when they came to bat in the second, the Cavaliers rallied for two runs with the help of a GCDS error and three walks. Harvey’s first run came home on a bases-loaded walk to Darius Brown. Jake Acosta singled in the second run of the inning.

Both starting pitchers put up zeroes the rest of the way. The Cavaliers had a chance to tie the game up in their final at-bat when Luke McCarthy was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning. He advanced to second on a fielder’s choice and represented the potential tying run, but he was left stranded when GCDS recorded the final two outs, one on a strikeout and the other by Edwin Sanchez’ long fly that looked like it had a chance to be a go-ahead two-run homer but was caught. “Edwin just missed a game-tying home run for that last out,” said Coach Lacen, who added, “We certainly had our opportunities offensively but we couldn't find a hole.”

Harvey had only three hits but reached base on six walks and one hit batsman. The Cavs just couldn’t get the timely hit when they had men on base other than the second inning. “The GCDS defense made the plays when they needed them most,” Coach Lacen said, adding, “I‘m so proud of this group and how they finished the season and came together as a team.”

Harvey finishes the season with a 7-7 record.
