Liotine & Haas Lead Baseball Over Southold

May 1, 2011

Haas (shown here vs. Port Jeff) was a catalyst for the Bears

On Friday the baseball team notched its 1st varsity win in 3 years (they were a JV team last season) in an exciting 11-9 victory over Southold.  It was a gratifying win not only because it ended their 8 game losing streak to start the season, but because it came against a quality opponent who had defeated them 22-5 over the previous 2 days.  Donnie Liotine and Ryan Haas were masterful on the mound and in the batter’s box for the Brook.  Liotine notched 4 RBIs, including a 3-run home run in the 4th inning, and recorded the save while Haas was the winning pitcher alongside going 4 for 5 at the plate with 3 RBIs.  Matt Schneider, a late addition to the lineup, had the most peculiar statistic of the day as he reached base 5 times without the benefit of a hit, walking 3 times, being hit by a pitch and reaching on an error.  He came around to score 3 big runs for the Bears.

It was the largest output of the season for an offense that scored 26 runs in their previous 8 games (3.25 runs per game), but it remained to be seen whether it would be enough to hold off the Settlers who loaded the bases with 1 out in the bottom of the 7th.  With the potential 1st win of the season hanging in the balance, Liotine struck out the last 2 batters to end the threat and give the Bears a well-deserved triumph.
