Black Knights Earn Bragging Rights Against King Philip

STOUGHTON, Mass. – Ever since the Hockomock League split into two divisions, they have crowned a minimum of two division champs in each sport, leaving no true ‘Hockomock champion.’

Because of how the schedules are set, cross-division games aren’t typically at the end of the season and therefore division champs rarely get the chance to face off bragging rights. But due to some postponements, Stoughton and King Philip’s game was pushed to the last weekend of the season, pitting the Davenport division champ against the Kelley-Rex division champ.

With that, there was plenty of bragging rights on the line as the Black Knights hosted the Warriors in a Saturday matinee. And on top of that, Stoughton was looking to snap a two game skid before entering the tournament.

But even with all of that to play for, Stoughton was simply playing for one another, for the team.

“It’s been an emotional day,” Stoughton head coach Mike Armour said. “We actually went to a wake this morning, as a team, for one of our guys who lost his dad. It’s been a long day but this is a tight knit group, this is a family really.

“Just being there for everyone, we said to ourselves, we have a lot of family here, we wanted to pick them up, we wanted to give them something to smile and cheer about and we did. It was awesome to see the guys having fun.”

In the end, the Black Knights walked away with smiles on their faces and the bragging rights with a 8-3 win over KP.

It didn’t take long for the fun to start for Stoughton. Senior Chris McNulty led off the bottom of the second inning with a single and moved to second on an errant pick off attempt. KP starter Jack DiCenso got back to back strikeouts but Stoughton junior Pat Hagerty connected for an RBI double off a 1-1 count to give the Black Knights a 1-0 lead.

The Black Knights continue to roll into the third inning with starter Barry Cooke needing just six pitches to get through four batters in the top of the third and the Black Knights’ offense added two more runs in the bottom half. Doug Seaman drew a one-out walk and stole second base.

Senior Jake Gibb drilled a single into left center and a bobble in the outfield allowed Seaman to round third and come in safely and Gibb to reach second. Jack Connelly followed with a double to bring Gibb home to make it 3-0.

“We lost a couple of hard fought games this past week and if we had gotten a big base hit, we win both of those games,” Armour said after 2-1 losses to Whitman-Hanson and Milford over the past week. “We talked about getting the two-out RBIs, the big hits. Pat Hagerty came through in the second…to come out and get the first run across the plate, that’s usually what we need. We can build off of that. Connelly and Gibb did what they do in the third and we just went from there. It was a total team effort.”

After Cooke got through a two-out single from Ryan Coulter, his second of the day, in the top of the fourth, Stoughton’s offense was back at it in the bottom half. A lead off single from Hagerty caused a pitching change as KP head coach brought in Jake Cavanagh to replace DiCenso. Nick Quattrucci’s sacrifice bunt moved Hagerty up and a bloop single from Ruben Gonzalez put runners on the corners.

A wild pitch brought Hagerty in from third and Gonzalez, who stole second, moved to third. Gibb walked and then the Black Knights executed a double steal with Gibb sprinting to second, drawing a throw, allowing Gonzalez to race home to make it 5-0.

“We preach it and we know it’s key,” Armour said of being active on the bases. “We know King Philip, they are active on the bases too. We talked about that leading up to this, about the base running and being aware of what they like to do. It was nice to see our guys execute running the bases too. It hasn’t been stellar for us this season but now we’re just getting everything in order.”

King Philip was able to breakthrough against Cooke in the top of the fifth but only pulled one run back. Sophomore Patrick Limerick drew a one-out walk, stole second and then came around to score after a pair of walks. Cooke was able to get the third out with a runner on third to limit the damage.

“I thought Barry Cooke pitched his butt off today,” Armour said. “He gave it everything he had right until the end of the fifth inning. And [Justin] Hutchinson, he’s been great for us all year and came in to help us. Tip your hat to King Philip, they fought right to the end.”

Justin Hutchinson retired KP in order in the top of the six and the Black Knights added key insurance runs in the bottom half.

A leadoff triple by Ryan Sullivan turned into a run when Gonzalez reached on an infield error. Seaman singled through the left side and the ball eluded KP’s left fielder, allowing Gonzalez to scamper home from second and Seaman to race to third. He scored Stoughton’s third run of the inning on a passed ball to make it 8-1.

King Philip rallied as Will Weir and DiCenso each had a two-out RBI in the top of the seventh with Ryan Guenette and Jon Rolfe, who both walked, scoring runs. But Hutchinson was able to close the door, ending the Warriors’ rally.

“We didn’t want to enter the tournament on a three game losing streak so we’re happy to get it done here,” Armour said. “Now we’re looking forward to the tournament.”

Cooke got the win, allowing one run in five innings of work. The win gives Stoughton the bragging rights with a head to head victory over KP.

“The kids were aware of it,” Armour said of the bragging rights on the line. “With the two Hock division champs going head to head today, we definitely feel like we made a statement. In the grand scheme of things, we’re just trying to get ready for the tournament. We’ve just been putting the pieces together. We want to be playing our best baseball in the tournament. This group of kids, with what they’ve done and how hard they’ve worked, and the pride they have, I just want to do everything in my power to put them in a position to be successful.”

Stoughton baseball finishes the season with a 14-6 overall record and 13-3 in league play. King Philip finishes 15-5 overall and 11-5 in the league, finishing in a tie with Taunton for the Kelley-Rex crown. Seeds for the MIAA tournament will be released on Tuesday.

KP ‘Answers the Bell’ Against Franklin, Clinches Title

By Lance Reynolds, HockomockSports.com Contributor

FRANKLIN, Mass. – The top of the sixth inning of Monday’s contest between King Philip and Franklin could very well be what defines the Warriors’ season, and what ignites them into a lengthy tournament run.

Losers of three straight coming into the marquee showdown against the Panthers, circumstances were not looking promising for KP as Franklin tacked on four runs in the bottom of the fifth to take a commanding 5-0 lead going into the sixth. However, that’s when everything began to go in the Warriors’ favor.

In the top of the sixth, KP ‘answered the bell’ by plating a game winning seven runs en route to clinching at least a share of the Kelley Rex title with a pivotal 9-5 victory over the Panthers, who also had a chance at claiming a split of the title entering Monday.

“That’s something that we haven’t been able to do all year. That’s a great Franklin team – they answered the bell there with the five runs. We haven’t been able to come back deep in games,” KP coach Pat Weir said. “I brought the kids in between that inning, and they understood what was on the line here. Coming off of three losses last week, I asked them to answer the bell, and every single one of those kids stepped up to the plate and answered the bell. There’s no one that stood out from nobody else – that was a complete team effort in that inning.”

Franklin sophomore Jason Ulrickson was nearly unhittable through the first five innings. The left-handed starter’s only blemish coming on a single off the bat of Will Weir in the top of the first. From there on, Ulrickson retired the next 13 KP batters – getting the Warriors to go down in order in the second, third, fourth, and fifth innings. However, King Philip was finally able to solve Ulrickson’s mastery the third time through the order.

The Warriors promptly put the first two batters on base in the decisive top of the sixth in the form of pinch hitter Ben Furfari, who was hit-by-pitch, and a Ryan Guenette single to right. Two batters later, Jon Rolfe loaded the bases on an infield single. Hitting in the third spot of KP’s lineup, Will Weir drove in Furfari for the first Warriors run on a sacrifice fly to center.

Cleanup hitter Jack DiCenso chipped in with a two run double to right bringing in Guenette and Rolfe to trim the Panthers lead to two at 5-3. Kyle Guenthner then drilled a double into left driving in DiCenso for a one-run ballgame at 5-4. Ryan Coulter followed with a game-tying single to right and quickly scored the go-ahead sixth run on a single that dropped into left field off Patrick Limerick’s bat. The seventh and final run of the inning came on a Guenette single to left scoring Limerick.

“I think it was a matter of us going through a few times and seeing [Ulrickson] for that second and third time,” Weir said of the KP’s offensive attack in the sixth. “He definitely kept us off balance – his breaking stuff kept us off balance – I think we were off on our front foot quite a bit. I think our guys relaxed there late in the game. Second, third time through, some of those guys sat back and kept their hands back, and I think we saw some good results from it.”

The Warriors were not quite done as they tacked on two more runs in the top of the seventh. Rolfe and Weir led off with back-to-back singles through the right side. The duo then converted a double steal during a Guenette at-bat with Rolfe successfully coming home for the eighth run. Weir came around on a Guenette single to score the ninth run and put KP on top 9-5.

“We have two games left in the season, and we’re fortunate enough for the first time in seven years to go into tournament play,” Weir said. “There is nothing worse going into tournament play on a losing streak. Nothing better than having an inning like that and being able to roll in to our next two games and enter the tournament hitting like we hit in that sixth inning.”

DiCenso started on the mound for the Warriors and tossed four innings of one run ball before Franklin tagged him for four runs in the bottom of the fifth. The first run came in second on a Corey Langevin single plating Mike Skaza.

Langevin got things going in the fifth by reaching on a leadoff error in the KP infield. Number nine hitter Alex Bissanti put two runners on a hit-by-pitch, and leadoff hitter Nick Santucci bunted his way on to first base to load the bases with no outs. Ryan Hodgkins followed through with a two-run knock on a double to right scoring Langevin and Bissanti for the second and third runs. Skaza brought in Santucci and Hodgkins was able to get around the tag of KP catcher Nolan Bradley for Franklin’s fifth and last run.

DiCenso was pulled after five innings of work allowing four runs on seven hits while striking out three. Weir elected to go with Jake Cavanagh for the final two innings. The senior first baseman and pitcher retired all six batters he faced – two of them coming on strikeouts – to pick up the win for the Warriors.

“Jack (DiCenso) is a kid that’s done it all year long. I think this was the first time that he’s given up an earned run in this game here today,” Weir said. “I think he battled hard. Don’t forget that that’s a Franklin team that’s been hitting the cover off the baseball as of late.

“Jack got in a little trouble there in the end, but we then decided to go to Cavanagh. Jake Cavanagh is someone that has come in time and time again in a save situation or starting a baseball game, and being able to finish it. I can’t say enough about that kid as a person and as a player.”

After combining to score just four runs in three games last week, Weir is nothing but thrilled with how his Warriors were able to come back with a nine run explosion on Monday.

“How can you not feel good after that sixth inning?,” Weir chuckled. “I’m extremely proud of these boys.”

King Philip baseball (11-4 in league-play, 14-4 overall) hopes things continue to roll when they travel to North Quincy on Wednesday for a non-league game while Franklin (10-6 in league-play, 12-8) looks to get back in the win column on Wednesday when they take on Hopkinton at Natick High School.

WRENTHAM, Mass. – With King Philip leading by a run and two outs in the fourth inning, Chris Wing, who was making his first start and just second appearance of the season, walked his second North Quincy hitter of the game to load the bases.

The Warriors were struggling at the plate against North Quincy starter Shawn Kelly, so KP coach Pat Weir decided it was time to go to the bullpen. He brought in senior Jake Cavanagh, who promptly induced a comebacker to end the inning and escape the jam.

“I did it in the Mansfield game, similar situation, game was on the line, runners in scoring position,” said Weir about making the pitching change. “He’s absolutely emotionless on the mound. I know he’s going to get it done.”

KP added three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning to break the game open and managed to pull out a 5-1 victory over the Red Raiders, despite managing only four hits (three of them infield hits) and hitting two balls out of the infield.

“Absolutely a day to put behind us,” said Weir. “That’s the funny thing about the game of baseball, you’re always going to have one of these days. I’m actually proud of the way they were able to battle through and fight through it and still come away with the victory.

“It was kind of a sub-par performance from a baseball perspective but I’m proud of the way they were able to grind it out.”

What the Warriors lacked in pop at the plate they made up for with aggressiveness on the basepaths. KP finished with eight stolen bases and also advanced on four wild pitches.

Although they also were thrown out trying to take second on a ball four that went to the backstop and trying to come home on contact against a drawn in infield, Weir will play the percentages and stick with the aggression.

“A lot of times we’re going to make those outs at home or at second base but that’s just the way we play,” he explained. “A lot of times you apply the pressure to the defense and a lot of time you have them make mistakes.

“We’re not going to change. It’s aggressive baseball and that’s our style here at King Philip.”

The Warriors took the lead in the bottom of the second. Jack DiCenso led-off the inning with a walk, one of six free passes issued by Kelly, and Jake Lannigan was hit by a pitch. A wild pitch moved both into scoring position for Ryan Guennette, who line a single to left scoring one.

Guennette stole second and Wing was also hit by a pitch to load the bases. Lead-off hitter Stephan MacMeans grounded into a fielder’s choice that scored Lannigan with the second run.

Wing cruised through the first two innings with four groundouts and a strikeout in the first six hitters. In the third he allowed a pair of singles, but a 6-4-3 double play (Will Weir to Guennette to DiCenso) ended the inning.

In the fourth, North Quincy out together a rally. A one-out walk got it started, followed by a double to left that put two in scoring position. Matt McDonald grounded to third and Lannigan tried to get the lead runner at the plate but Nolan Bradley’s tag was not in time and the Raiders were on the board.

Wing struck out the next hitter for the second out, but then walked Tommy Kelly to load the bases and the coach called for Cavanagh.

“With the non-league game and four games this week, I took it as an opportunity to try and get [Chris] some reps,” said Weir. “He did well and in the fourth inning he got himself into a little jam but then you’ve got the senior leadership coming in, Jake Cavanagh.”

The Warriors were still scuffling at the plate, but in the fifth they put the game away. Ryan Coulter started the inning with a swinging bunt that he beat out for an infield hit, one of two for him in the game. Cavanagh drew a walk and both moved up on MacMeans’ two-strike sacrifice bunt.

Kyle Guenthner grounded to third and the throw to the plate was judged to have beaten Coulter, although it did not appear that the catcher had actually made the tag. Kelly threw a wild pitch and that brought Cavanagh home and Guenthner stole third. Will Weir walked and managed to get himself into a rundown that allowed Guenthner to score before diving back into first safely.

Weir then stole second and third. He would score on another wild pitch to make it 5-1. Three runs for the Warriors with only one hit that did not get past the mound.

Pat Weir joked, “We scored four runs that inning and we had an infield dribbler for a base hit?”

Cavanagh shut down North Quincy. He threw 3-1/3 innings of one-hit relief and struck out two in each of the final two innings.

Weir said, “He got stronger as the game went along. You could see it in that last inning he was bringing it pretty hard. He’s a kid I can alway rely on and lean on.”

It was an ugly win, but it counts. Weir said with a laugh, “We’re not going to look back on how it was a win, but I’ll take the ‘W’ anytime I can.”

KP (12-1, 10-1) will be right back on the diamond on Friday with a non-league game at Sharon.
