King Philip Outduels North In Non-League Clash

By Joe Clark, HockomockSports.com Student Reporter

WRENTHAM, Mass. – King Philip escaped a jam in the top half of the fourth and scored three runs in the bottom half to pick up a 4-1 non-league win over North Attleboro on Tuesday afternoon.

Pitching dominated the game early on as both North’s Nick Sinacola and KP’s Stephen Murray pitched 1-2-3 first innings. Through three innings, the only hit of the game was a second inning single single by North Attleboro catcher Zach DeMattio, who paced North’s offense with a 2-4 day, including an RBI triple.

After DeMattio’s single, Nick Crowley got hit by a pitch which set North up with first and second and nobody out, but Murray got a pop out to third and then a fly out to Patrick Limerick in left field, then doubled off DeMattio at second after he left early. Nick Sinacola set down the first nine KP batters he faced, striking out three.

In the fourth, both teams got their offense working, as North loaded the bases after back to back singles from Nick Crawley and Matt Iaconis and a two out walk by John Brennan, but Murray got out of the bases loaded jam by getting a hit back to the mound for a 1-3 put out.

“That’s what Steve does. He’s been with me for three years now, and when he gets in a jam I don’t get nervous, I get worked up, but not nervous because Steve’s gotten out of situations like that so many times now,” said KP coach Pat Weir about Murray’s ability to get out of jams.

In the bottom half of the inning, the Warriors took advantage of that momentum. Kyle Guenther became KP’s first base runner with a single into center, and Will Weir connected on a one-out single, which set up first and second with only one out. Sinacola got his fourth strikeout of the game for the second out but walked Ben Furfari to load the bases.

Collin Cooke then drew a walk to score Guenther, and Sinacola just barely hit Jack Webster with a pitch which allowed Weir to cross the plate. Chris Wing drew KP’s second bases loaded walk of the inning, which brought home Furfari and gave KP a 3-0 advantage. After Wing’s walk, Peter Cohen came in to relieve Sinacola, and he induced a grounder to Brennan, who stepped on second for the force out to end the inning.

In the top of the fifth, North answered back with a two out rally of their own. Nate Pearce hit a two-out double into the gap and DeMattio crushed a ball deep into right for a triple to bring home Pearce and get North on the board and cut the KP lead to 3-1.

In the bottom half of the 5th, Guenthner drew a walk and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Limerick. Will Weir singled home Guenther, and advanced to second on an error on the throw home. Murray was then hit by a pitch, and with Furfari at the plate, Murray and Weir executed a perfect double to steal to set up second and third with only one out.

However Furfari’s ensuing flyout was not deep enough to score Weir, and a ground out to short to end the inning.

After walking Iaconis to start the top of the sixth, Murray was pulled from the game, but he still had a very impressive outing, striking out three in five inning of work while only allowing one run. Jackson Shiebler replaced Murray, and induced a pair of fielder’s choice outs and then got a force out to end the inning.

Cohen set down the Warriors in order in the bottom of the sixth. In the seventh, Shiebler got a fly out to center and a ground out, but after walking Nate Pearce, North had one last chance. After a tough at-bat with DeMattio fouling off a couple of pitches, Shiebler ended the game with a strikeout.

KP (5-1) will get back at it on Thursday at noon when they take on Taunton (4-0) at home.

North Attleboro (3-3 for tournament purposes) will return home to Community Field on Thursday where they’ll do battle with Stoughton (4-2).

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.

Warriors Steal Victory On Rough Day at the Plate

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.
