2014 Senior League World Series

Game 1: DTQ LL Southeast Region Champion vs Central East Maui LL West Region Champion.

Chris Redmon gives Southeast late push to beat West, 5-1. Chris Redmon brought home the winning run to give Southeast the lead in the seventh inning, as Southeast hung on to beat West 5-1 on Sunday. Christian Colangelo singled to get on base in the seventh. He then went from first to second on a single by Michael Morrissey.

West had no answer for Michael Nickles, who kept runners off the basepaths in his appearance. West managed just one hit off of Nickles, who allowed no earned runs, walked none and struck out one during his 2 2/3 innings of work.

Linden Kanamu ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss. He lasted just 6 2/3 innings, walked none, struck out eight, and allowed five runs. In the fourth inning, West pushed across its only run of the day on an RBI single by Rylie Velez.

Game 2: Dumfries blanks Regina, 10-0 in 5 innings

Dumfries District L.L., Dumfries, Virginia, scored early and often in the U.S. Southeast champs’ second game of the World Series, cruising to a blowout win over Canada’s Kiwanis National/Regina North/Broncos L.L., Regina, Saskatchewan, 10-0 in five innings at Mansfield Stadium on Tuesday morning. The game ended early because of the 10-run rule. Dumfries took advantage of the Regina Little Leagues’ sloppy play in which the Canadians committed five errors and walked seven. Jake Hesselink and Caleb Bymak did fairly well for the Regina leagues on the mound, but the defense behind them made it very difficult. Regina gave up four unearned runs out of the 10 total runs that Dumfries put on the board. Dumfries did not waste any time opening up the scoring in the home half of the first inning. Starting pitcher Thomas Thorgersen reached base on a one-out walk and advanced to second on an error by Spencer Davis, which allowed Fox Semones to reach. Both runners advanced two bases on the error and Thorgersen came in to score on a sacrifice fly by Michael Nickles to give the Virginians an early 1-0 lead. Dumfries scored three more runs in the bottom of the second inning, taking a commanding 4-0 lead, and never looked back. Regina’s only threat was in the top of third inning. Lucas Yanko and Hesselink opened with back- to-back singles, but the Canadians left the bases loaded and could push nothing across. Dumfries put the game away for good in the bottom of the fourth, scoring five runs on four hits. Matthew Nickles, Michael Morrissey, Daniel Shookster, Benjamin Marotske, and Thorgersen each had RBIs in the frame. Dumfries extended its lead to 10-0, and it was more than enough for the shutout win. Hesselink had two hits to lead Canada. Jordan Bieber contributed with a hit. Thorgersen went 1-for-1 with two RBIs, two walks and scored a run to lead the U.S. Southeast champs. Marotske was 2-for-3 with an RBI, walk and a run scored. Shookster went 1-for-1 with an RBI. Shookster was 1-for-1 with an RBI. Morrissey went 1-for-2 with an RBI, walk, and two runs scored. Semones, Michael Nickles and Matthew each had a hit for the winners. Thorgersen earned the victory for Dumfries. Despite only pitching one inning, Hesselink was the losing pitcher.

Game 3: Bangor East/West rolls over Dumfries, 7-3 Aug 13

Ben Crichton and Kyle Stevenson help host Bangor East/West L.L., Bangor, remain unbeaten in Pool A with a 7-3 win over U.S. Southeast’s Dumfries District L.L., Dumfries, Virginia, at Mansfield Stadium on Wednesday night. The Maine District 3 champs took advantage of some early mistakes by Dumfries. Bangor East/West scored the first run in the bottom of the second inning on a wild pitch to take an early 1-0 lead. Dumfries answered right back in the top of the third inning. Benjamin Marotske led off the frame with a walk and advanced to second on sacrifice bunt from Thomas Thorgersen. Fox Semones drove in Marotske to tie the game at 1-1. Bangor East/West blew the game open in the home half of the third, scoring four runs on four hits, and never looked back. Nick Cowperthwaite highlighted the inning with a two-run RBI single to center, which gave the host a 4-1 lead. The Maine District 3 champs led 5-1 after three innings. The U.S. Southeast champs gave the home team a scare in the top of the sixth inning, scoring a run to cut deficit to 7-3 and loading the bases. They managed to score only once, however. This is the first time in 13 years a Maine District 3 team has ever started the World Series in Bangor at 3-0 in pool play. The 2010 team – also Bangor East/West – won its first two games before dropping its third and winning its fourth en route to a second place finish in Pool A and a berth in the semifinals. That team made it all of the way to the title game, losing to Latin America’s Aruba South L.L., San Nicolas, Aruba. Seven out of the 10 players who came to the plate for Bangor East/West recorded a hit. Crichton went 2-for-2 with an RBI, walk and a run scored. Stevenson was 2-for-4 with two runs scored. Trevor DeLaite went 1-for-4 with a run scored. Derek Fournier was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Johnny Cote went 1-for-3 with an RBI. Ryan Brookings was 1-for-1 with an RBI and a run scored. Semones led Dumfries, going 2-for-3 with an RBI, walk and a run scored. Braxton Boone went 2-for-3 with a run scored. Marotske was 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Christian Colangelo went 1-for-3. Chris Redmon was 1-for-2 with a walk. Despite control issues, DeLaite managed to work himself out of some jams and get the win for Bangor East/West. Thorgersen was credited with the loss even though he pitched only two innings. Bangor East/West will conclude pool play Thursday with a 5 p.m. game against Central East Maui L.L., Wailuku, Hawaii. Dumfries will conclude its pool play schedule with a 10 a.m. game against Asia-Pacific’s Saipan L.L., Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands.

Game 4: Dumfries helps semifinal aspirations with 9-1 win over Saipan Aug 14

Short of a shutout, Dumfries District L.L., Dumfries, Virginia, did the next best thing against Asia-Pacific’s Saipan L.L., Saipan, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, as the U.S. Southeast champs limited Saipan to one run in a 9-1 win Thursday. After losing to Maine District champ Bangor East/West Wednesday night, the U.S. Southeast representative not only needed to win Thursday to keep its semifinal hopes alive, but prevent Saipan from scoring too many runs. That’s because there was the distinct possibility that Dumfries, Bangor East/West, and U.S. West’s Central East Maui L.L., Wailuku, Hawaii, could have all finished pool play with 3-1 records. If that happened, head-to-head would not have broken the tie, as Central East Maui would have beaten Bangor East/West, but not Dumfries. When head-to-head fails to break a tie for first place, the tied teams’ ratio of runs allowed per innings on defense determines first place. Dumfries sent all nine starters to the plate in the bottom of the first inning, scoring four of them for a quick 4-0 lead. Saipan starting pitcher Evangelista hit two batters, threw a wild pitch, walked one, and gave up two hits in an inning that also saw Dumfries steal three bases, including home. Dumfries added another run in the second inning, thanks to a second steal of home. Both steals of the plate were on the back end of double-steals. Saipan didn’t answer with a run of its own until the fifth, using two singles, a wild pitch, and a sacrifice bunt to get the run across. Unfortunately for the Asia-Pacific champs, trying to win at least one game in the World Series, Dumfries replied with another run in the bottom of the inning, taking advantage of a hit batsman, a single, and an error to make it 6-1. Aug 14img_0261Saipan put its first two batters of the sixth on base, as Kenji A. Yamagata singled and Joseph Lifoifoi followed with a walk. But Raymond Kenji A. Yamagata was thrown out trying to steal second with Lifoifoi batting. Dumfries starting pitcher Thomas Thorgersen ended the inning with two strikeouts. The U.S. Southeast champs, who have finished pool play with a 3-1 record, put the game away in the sixth, scoring three runs on four hits, two walks, and a wild pitch. Michael Nickles led Dumfries at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two runs batted in and a run scored. Benjamin Marotske went 2-for-4 with a run scored. Thorgersen pitched four innings, allowing four hits and two walks while striking out two. He threw a phenomenal 51 pitches for strikes out of 59 total pitches. Reliever Matthew Nickles allowed only one hit while striking out two in three innings of work. For Saipan, which goes home 0-4, Jessie Brel went 1-for-3 with one RBI. On the mound, Alfonso Evangelista went 5 2/3 innings, allowing nine runs on seven hits. Four of the runs he allowed were unearned. He walked four and struck out one.
