Mountaineers split twinbill with Plymouth

Wednesday, July 17th

MONTPELIER, Vt. -- 

The Vermont Mountaineers split a New England Collegiate Baseball League doubleheader with the Plymouth Pilgrims on Tuesday at Recreation Field. Vermont took game one by a 5-1 final. Plymouth returned the favor in game two by coming away with a 4-2 win. Both games were seven innings long.

Game one was tied at one until the 6th inning when the Mountaineers offense tagged Plymouth starter Nick Fabrizio (Quinnipiac) for four runs (just two earned). Mike Vigliarolo (St. Louis) reached on a one out walk and moved to second on a single by the following batter, Chandler Brock (Alabama-Huntsville). Brad Kaczka (Winthrop) delivered with an RBI single to score Vigliarolo and give Vermont a 2-1 lead. Brock and Kaczka executed a double steal during A.J. Ryan's (Dayton) at bat to set up second and third with just one out. Ryan hit a ground ball to the pitcher Fabrizio who looked Brock back to third before throwing the ball five feet over first basemen Vin Guglietti's (Quinnipiac) head allowing Brock and Kaczka to score easily and move A.J. Ryan over to third on the play. Matt MacDowell (Dartmouth) followed with an RBI single to open up a 5-1 Mountaineers lead. That is how the game would end.

John Miles (Missouri) started and was very good once again. He allowed his first earned run of the season on four hits and two walks in five innings of work. He also struck out three. With the win, Miles improved to 3-0 on the season.

Nick Fabrizio took the loss and fell to 0-3 on the summer. He allowed five runs (only two earned) on seven hits and a walk through five and a third innings. He struck out four in the game.

Game two was a different story for Vermont. The Mountaineers started off the first inning by committing two errors and allowing an unearned run off starter Cameron Sorgie (Albany). Sorgie conceded another run in the second inning as the Mountaineers went down 2-0 after two innings.

Mark Podlas (Dayton) hit a solo homerun in the 3rd to give the Mountaineers some life and cut the deficit in half by making it 2-1.

The Pilgrims took their final punch in the 5th inning when Andrew Santomauro (Lafayette) led off with a double. Two batters later, Vin Guglietti hit a two-run homerun to put Plymouth up 4-1.

That cushion would be more than enough for Pilgrims' starter Jeffrey Springs (Appalachian St.) who lasted five and a third innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks. He also struck out eight. With the victory, Springs improved to 3-2 on the year.

Travis Stout (Jacksonville St.) shut the door on Vermont in the 7th when he allowed no runs on one hit and struck out two. He earned his seventh save of the summer.

 

The Mountaineers pushed across an unearned run in the 6th when Mike Vigliarolo scored on a passed ball. Vermont left the tying run on second base in the 6th after having two chances to tie the game with one out and runners on second and third.

 

Cameron Sorgie (Albany) was hit with the loss and fell to 1-2 on the campaign. Sorgie went five innings and allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks. He struck out six.

The Vermont Mountaineers are back in action on Wednesday when they take the trip to Holyoke to take on the Blue Sox in NECBL play at 6:35 at Mackenzie Stadium.
