vs.
Eaglebrook
Win 2-1

As John Fogerty once said in the song Centerfield, “Well beat the drum, and hold the phone, the sun came out today.” This spring hasn’t felt like spring, but the Cardigan Varsity baseball boys were determined not to let anything ruin a beautiful day on Saturday, as their friends and rivals from Eaglebrook came up for the season finale.

Both teams came into the game with only one loss, so the game promised to be an exciting matchup. Sam Harris ‘19 made short order of the 1-2-3 hitters from the Eagles in the first, inducing two fly balls to Critty Conroy ‘19, and striking out the lead off hitter.

The Cougars responded with a run in the bottom half of the inning. Mattie Grabmann ‘19 beat out an infield hit, stole second and was knocked home by an RBI single from Will Hindle ‘19. The game would stayed a 1-0 battle until Eaglebrook would score on an error in the bottom of the 3rd. Harris would shut the Eagles down after that through 4 solid innings.

The Cougars had a few base running errors that led to easy outs for the Eagles, but the defense held strong. In the 5th however, Eaglebrook had the bases loaded with only one out. Grabmann entered the game and, in a superb display of grit, struck out the first hitter he faced and forced a pop fly to centerfield for the third out. It’d be hard to think of a gutsier moment in recent Cardigan Baseball history.

The Cardigan boys took that momentum in the bottom of the 5th, or so it seemed. With two outs, the Eagles intentionally walked Grabmann. Next batter up, Hindle crushed the next pitch to deep centerfield. Eaglebrook’s player made what can only be described as an exceptional running catch over his head, taking away a sure run from the Cougars.

Grabmann fanned two in the 6th, and Hugh Jung ‘20 made an excellent play snagging a short hop at 3rd and throwing a strike to 1st base. Going into the bottom half of the 6th, the Cougars knew that time was running out for a game winning run. Luckily, the bottom half of the order was able to produce, as Mattie Hong ‘19 slapped a hard grounder to second base with the bases loaded, Sam Sibold ‘19 beat the throw home to give the boys a 2-1 lead. Coach Lawson decided to gamble for an insurance run, having Jackson Gates ‘19 lay down a suicide squeeze with AJ Noel ‘19 charging towards home. Despite a near-perfect bunt, the very talented Eaglebrook pitcher calmly glove-flipped the bunt to home for the out. The catcher then turned and threw a strike to first base to complete the double play, but the damage was done.

From there, Grabmann took over and fanned the side in the 7th. An amazing end to a crazy season. Thank you to Eaglebrook, their team is excellent and Cardigan will have their work cut out for them in years to come. This is one of the most exciting games between these two schools in recent memory. Thank you to the Cardigan community as well; it seemed as if the whole school was there supporting the boys in green during the game.


vs.
Phillips Academy
Loss 2-7

Andover's JV team played excellent baseball on Wednesday, and despite good pitching and excellent effort at the plate, the Cougars were unable to hold them off in the end, falling 7-2. A combination of hits and errors led to a 3-0 lead for Andover in the bottom of the first. Their lineup, from top to bottom was hitting line drives. Matt Hong '19 pitched very well, only walking one batter; however, the Andover Big Blue sat on fastballs and hit them wherever they were pitched. The Cougars closed the gap in the top of the fourth, making it a 3-2 game on some timely hitting from Will Hindle '19, Matthew Grabmann '19 and Sam Harris '19. AJ Noel ‘19 avoided being thrown out at 2nd on a gutsy steal play, as the boys clawed their way back into a tough game.

Unfortunately, defensive breakdowns and some tough bounces put the game out of reach in the bottom of the fourth as Andover would plate three more unearned runs. Grabmann and Harris were brilliant in relief, only allowing one bloop single combined. To the Cougar team's credit, they played hard throughout and stuck with the idea of every game being a gift this spring. The Cougars had to play their best against Andover and, unfortunately, were not able to do that.

The Cardigan Varsity Baseball Team ends it's 2019 campaign at home on Saturday against Eaglebrook at 3:30.


vs.
Woodstock HS JV
Win 17-0

The Cardigan Varsity Baseball Team didn't waste the opportunity to host a home game on Saturday, beating the visitors from Woodstock High School 17-0. The fun started in the bottom of the first when Matthew Grabmann '19 hit a deep home run to center field on the first pitch to lead the offensive charge. The Cougars would plate four runs in the inning. From there, Sam Harris '19 would cruise in the first two innings, fanning all 6 batters he faced. Matt Hong ‘19 would relieve him and continue to keep Woodstock off the board. Jackson Gates '19 hit a double in the second inning, just missing out on a home run to left field. The Cougars would end up plating 17 runs on 12 hits, while allowing no runs and only two hits by Woodstock. Every Cardigan player would reach base, including a hard-hit double by Logan Huetter '20. Harris added a triple, and Cole Beck ‘19 and Will Hindle ‘19 also each had a double in the game.Grabmann made quick work of the side in the 5th, striking out all three hitters he faced, to end the game. The Cougars head to their toughest matchup so far this season, playing Andover on Wednesday.


vs.
Deerfield Academy
Win 4-1

Due to the rainy spring weather, the Cardigan Varsity Baseball Team played another home game on the road, this time making the trek down to Deerfield Academy. Deerfield were gracious hosts as the Cougars played on their stunning varsity field as the home team.

The Cougar’s athlete of the day was Sam Harris ‘19. He held the Big Green to just one hit in 5 innings while striking out seven and allowing no runs. Harris also hit a 2-run triple in the bottom of the first, which was all the run support he would need. Cardigan would add on two more runs in the 4th off some timely hitting by Will Hindle ‘19, Hugh Jung ‘20 and a great 10-pitch walk by Critty Conroy ‘19.

The Cougars hit the ball hard all game; however, the Big Green shortstop and third baseman were up to the task. The Cougars were able to make the most out of hits, walks, and errors, which was crucial in securing the win. Mattie Grabmann ‘19 earned the 6 out save, striking out 6 hitters in the last two innings.
