GAME OF THE WEEK: Ketcham vs Arlington Baseball [VIDEO]
By Charlie Cornacchio
WAPPINGERS FALLS - The Arlington - Ketcham rivalry continued after Ketcham won the first meeting two days prior, a 5-0 shutout at the Admirals home field.
Round II was played at Ketcham's home field and early on it looked like Arlington might return the favor. A two-run triple by Stephen Gerringer in the second put Arlington up 2-0. But Ketcham came back with 3 runs setting up a dramatic 7th inning.
Arlington's Marc Barbieri got things started with a single to right, and with two on Gerringer came up clutch again with a two run double to help the Admirals regain the lead 4-3. But in the bottom of the 7th, Ketcham's first two batters got on by walks and another one loaded the bases after getting hit by a pitch.
A harmless pop up to the infield and a failed suicide squeeze left runners at second and third with two outs and two strikes on Ketcham's Matt Seidner. Seidner took a 3-2 pitch and drilled it through the hole between 3rd and short allowing both runners to score and Ketcham wins a wild one 5-4.
Both teams are now 4-2 on the season.
