Monday April 16, 2012 4:00pm
Middletown High School 3
East Greenwich High School 2 - Final
It may not have been the longest game in history but it sure felt like it. Stuck on a score of 2-2 for 5 innings the Islander Varsity Baseball squad's tenacity and never-say-die attitude pulled them through to this early season win. Islander fans lined the field holding their breath and their blankets close to the chest as the sun went down on the nail-biting contest. With every batter, the entire team could be seen behind the back stop holding out their caps to generate the energy it would take to bring home the win.
In the bottom of the fourteenth inning with the game tied at 2-all, Middletown had the bases loaded with two outs and Anthony Geer hit a single up the middle to score Spencer Gradley for a 3-2 win over East Greenwich in Division I-South. Jake Murray pitched the first seven innings, striking out nine and Spencer Gradley went the rest of the way to help the Islanders improve to 3-2.
Pitchers-Catchers: Jake Murray, Spencer Gradley (8), and Kevin Nash.
