MARINERS WIN CONNECTICUT MASTERS
The Cape Cod Mariners “ AAA” 60’s travel team took home the championship in the Connecticut Masters Tournament the weekend of June 16-17 in Middletown, Connecticut.. The Mariners finished with a 4-1 record. The team displayed great team defense, outstanding pitching and enough offense in a roller coaster hitting performance to secure the title.
The Cape Boys came out on fire to beat the Baystate Bombers “Major” team in a 21-12 win. Kevin Hayes lead the team on the mound keeping the Bombers in check while going 3 for 3 at the plate. Keith Fluker and Joe Frongello were also 3 for 3 for the game. Tony D’Alessandro, Bob Maruca , Mike Barry, Dave Pina, Bruce Sher, and Gary Arne all chipped in with two hits each.
In game two, the Mariners gave the five run equalizer to the “AA” Diamond Dawgs from Massachusetts . The Cape guys ended up falling off the hitting track managing only 11 hits in 32 at bats in a 12-10 loss. Ron Scarborough gave up only 7 runs without the equalizer in a frustrating loss. Leading the way at that plate were Dave Pina, Bob Maruca and Joe Frongello with two hits each. Kevin Hayes had a two-run homer.
The third game on Saturday was a totally different story. The Mariners were back on track pounding out 28 hits versus the Long Island Jaguars in a 24 - 8 win. Top hitters going 3 for 3 were Gary Arne, Dave Pina and Bob Maruca. Hayes, Fluker, Sher, D’Alessandro, Joe Gyscek, Chris Myland and Frank Pina all had two hits each. The infield defense was led by the outstanding play of Joe Guiducci. Kevin Hayes was dominant on the mound again and took several up the middle hits away from a frustrated Jags team.
With temperatures in the 90’s on Sunday the team started out with a 19-15 win over a strong, hard hitting Vernon Connecticut team that was playing in its first Connecticut Games. The Mariners went 24 for 39 at the plate. Joe Frongello, Ron Kenyon and Bruce Sher led the way with three hits each. Frank Pina, Scarborough, D’Alessandro, Fluker, Gyscek, Maruca, all had two hits.
The Cape Codders faded at the plate in the Championship game. The coaster did not totally derail but came very close as the team managed only 11 hits in 29 at bats in a 5-3 win over Mike’s Blue Collar from Connecticut. Strong pitching by Ron Scarborough and “total team defense“ willed the team to the championship. With the scored tied 3-3 in the bottom of the sixth Ron Scarborough hit a long two out double to left center to score the two eventual winning runs. Top hitters for the game were Chris Myland and Tony D'Alessandro with two hits each.
Several players batted over .600 for the tournament. Leading the way were Ron Kenyon 8 for 10 (.800 avg), Joe Frongello 11 for 14 (.786 avg), Tony D’Alessandro and Bob Maruca 9 for 14 (.643 avg), Kevin Hayes 6 for 10, (.600 avg) with two home runs and Scarborough 3 for 5, (.600 avg).
The unanimous choice for “TOURNAMENT MVP” went to Head Coach Paul Donnelly.
