Another Classic, Outlaws Edge Lookouts 9-8 in 11 Innings to Force Game 3

New City, NY:  Yet another 1-run playoff game for the Lookouts happened Thursday night, this one did not go their way as they came from behind on two different occasions to send the game to extras, but also squanered opportunites to close the series out.  Brian Brophys 3-run home run seemed to put the game away for the Outlaws as they expanded their lead to 8-2 after 7 and a half innings of play.  The Lookouts did not quit.  They scraped 2 runs back in their half of the 8th making the game 8-4 headed to the ninth.  After a couple hits and an Outlaw error, the Lookouts were set up with the bases loaded, 2-out in the ninth with first basemen Billy McClure stepping up the plate.  McClure would crush a grand slam over the left field fence to tie the game at 8 and give the Lookouts new life.  Still with 2 outs, the Lookouts continued to rally.  A single by Dan Nieves and a walk to Scott D'Ottavio put the winning run on 2nd with 2-outs.  Second basemen Joe Grillo stepped in lined a ball straight back up the middle which was some how knocked down by the Outlaw pitcher to end the inning.  The Lookouts had yet another chance to end the series in the bottom of the tenth but were unable to bunt runners over giving the Outlaws another chance heading into the 11th.  The Outlaws loaded the bases with no out in the 11th, but solid pitching by Lookouts reliever Frank Pezzullo limited the damage to only 1 run.  Down 9-8 in the bottom of the 11th, McClure remained red hot singling up the middle with one out. Nieves stepped up and ripped hard 1-hop liner to short which turned into a taylor made double play to end the game.  Final score Outlaws 9, Lookouts 8 in 11 innings.  After the heart-breaking loss, the Lookouts look to regroup for game 3 tommorrow night at Germonds.  First pitch is 7pm.

Another Thriller, Lookouts Take 1-0 Series Lead on Outlaws Behind Flemming

New City, NY:  Behind a gutsy performace from starter CJ Flemming and some cluth hitting, the #10 seeded Lookouts took a 1-0 series lead on the defending champs and #1 seeded Outlaws tuesday night at Germonds park.  The Lookouts struck first in the top of the 2nd inning.  After two quick outs were recorded, DH Todd Katz got things started with a single.  Colan Schneidhelm followed that with a double to right center setting the Lookouts up with 2nd and 3rd.  With two outs, Frank Varicchio laced a 2-RBI double giving the Lookout an early 2-0 lead.  The Lookouts would extend that lead to 3-0 in the top of the third on another 2-out RBI hit, this time off the bat of skipper Dino Mazzotta. 

 Down 3-0, the Outlaws were able to scratch a couple runs of their own.  One in the bottom of the fourth on a triple from Justin Michalek and a sac fly from James Caroleo. The other run came in the bottom of the 5th on a 2-out homerun off the bat of Mario Martinez.  After a rough first 3 innings, Outlaw starter Chris Granata settled in holding the Lookouts scoreless in the middle innings allowing them to cut the lead to 3-2.

  It stayed 3-2 in favor of the Lookouts into the 8th inning.  Lookouts first basemen Billy McClure got things started with a leadoff single.  After a perfect bunt single by Dan Nieves and a hit batsmen, Granata's night came to an end and the Lookouts were set up with bases loaded and no outs.  After the first out was recorded, third basemen TJ Varicchio came through with a 2-RBI single to left to extend the Lookout lead to 5-2.  Varicchio would score later that inning on a misplayed ball by the Outlaws.  The Outlaws scratched one run back in their half of the 8th making the score 6-3 Lookouts setting the stage for the ninth.

   Flemming started the ninth trying to complete the game but the Outlaws would not go easily.  They were able to finally chase Flemming from the game and scratched a couple runs off him and reliever Sean Kahn with some timely hits and shotty Lookout defence.  With 2-out, the bases loaded, a 1-run lead and a left-handed Outlaw hitter coming to bat, Mazzotta called on veteran lefty Hercules Jones for the final out.  After quickly getting ahead 1-2 on the batter, Jones was able to get a fastball in on the batter and get a weak ground ball to first base to end the game.  Final score Lookouts 6, Outlaws 5.  The Lookouts take a 1-0 series lead in the quarter finals with game two thursday night, 7pm at Germonds.

'Wild' Wild-Card Playoff Game, Lookouts Advance over Cyclones 7-6 in Thriller

Purchase, NY: The Lookouts and Cyclones played one of the more exciting games you will ever see in their 1-and-done wild card playoff game this afternoon at Purchase College.  The game was back and forth from the first inning until the final out.  The Lookouts struck first in the top of the first getting back to back singles from Dan Nieves and Scott D'Ottavio.  Nieves would score later in the inning on an RBI ground out from TJ Varicchio.  The Cyclones answered right back in their half of the first getting a leadoff single from Matt Ciraco.  Ciraco would then steal second and score on back to back wild pitches to tie the score at 1-1 after one inning.  It stayed that way until the top of the third inning.  Lookouts first basemen Billy McClure led things off with a booming double to left center.  Nieves would single again to advance McClure to 3rd.  After the first out was recorded, Nieves was then picked off of first base for the second out of the inning.  With McClure still on third, Lookouts second basemen Joe Grillo would deliver a 2-out RBI single to left give the Lookouts a 2-1 lead.  After a walk to Varicchio, skipper Dino Mazzotta would hit a hot shot to thrid base that the Cyclones would throw away allowing Grillo to score to give the Lookouts a 3-1 lead.  Once again in their half of the 3rd, the Cyclones answered right back with 3 runs of their own, the clutch hit being a 2-out bases loaded 2-run single from Dan Garcia to give the Cyclones their first lead at 4-3 after three innings. 

  The Lookouts answered right back again in the top of the 4th.  With one out, catcher Kevin Mulvihill singled to left.  Frank Varicchio then launched an RBI triple to deep center field to tie the score at 4-4.  With one out, McClure lifted a shallow fly ball to right field, Varicchio tried to tag from third but was gunned down to end the inning with the score still tied.  It stayed that way until the bottom half of the 5th inning.  Ciraco would again get things going for the Cyclones with a leadoff single, steal second and advance to third after a Lookout error.  Cyclone first basemen Chris Carday would then score Ciraco on a long fly ball to right giving the Cyclones the lead once again at 5-4 after 5 innings. After a quiet 6th inning, the Cyclones would tack on another run in the bottom of the 7th inning on an RBI single from Tim Bucolo giving the Cyclones a 2-run edge at 6-4.

  Once again, Ciraco would start things up with a lead-off single for the Cyclones.  Trying for his third stolen base, Ciraco was finally caught by Lookouts catcher Kevin Mulvihill for the first out of the inning.  With 2-out, Carday would keep the Cyclones alive with a double to left field.  The Cyclones would enter a pitch-runner for the tying run.  Bucolo stepped in and hit a clean single to center field.  Lookouts center field Dan Nieves, who had been tested a couple times earlier in the game, charged hard and delivered a strike to home plate nailing the potential tying run for the final out of the game. A fitting way to end such a back and forth game. With the win, the Lookouts advance to the quarter finals against the #1 seed and defending champs the New City Outlaws.  Game 1 is tuesday at Germonds at 7pm.
