2011-06-13 HS Baseball: EL vs Minnechaug – Western Mass D-1 Final

It’s been said over and over … solid pitching and defense wins championships. Falcon hurler Greg Heineman kept Spartan batters and the fearsome rally potential at bay for the full 7 innings, while EL pitchers Steve Moyers  and Matt O’Neil struggled. The Falcon defense was able to snuff out a few rally opportunities, while the Spartans coughed up an uncharacteristic 5 miscues. Heineman had 2 hits and 3 RBIs to help out his cause; James Croci and Jeff Klofas each had 2 hits to lead the Spartans.

While Minnechaug goes on to face the Central Mass winnner St John’s, East Longmeadow ends another very succesfull season and looks to replace most of its middle defense for next season, as graduation takes away their starting catcher (Dan Ferguson), 2B (James Croci), 1B (Joe Moleski), and CF (Ken Morrisino).
