Sport: Baseball

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Matt Boutwell

Portland, Maine - The Portland Sea Dogs (29-51) walked-off with a 6-5 win in a 16-inning marathon over the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (37-40) in a game that began on Thursday night at Hadlock Field and ended five hours and nine minutes later at 12:14 AM on Friday morning.

 
Outfielder Cole Sturgeon (W, 1-0) earned the win with three scoreless innings of relief and scored the winning run in the bottom of the 16th on a wild pitch by Cory Burns (L, 2-5).  Sturgeon played 10 innings in left field to begin the game and then three as the right fielder before being called upon to pitch in the 14th inning.  It was the longest game both teams had played this season.

Maine Baseball Report: Wessel Strong in Mainers Road Win

Sport: Baseball

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Matt Boutwell

New Bedford, Mass. – The trend of solid starting pitching continued for the Sanford Mainers (9-9) as starterBen Wessel (University of Rhode Island) turned in a quality start and three different Mainers drove in a run in a 4-1 victory over the New Bedford Bay Sox (9-10) at Paul Walsh Field Thursday night.

 

Wessel (1-3) tossed a season-high six and two-third innings, scattered seven hits, and allowed an unearned run on his own wild pitch in the third, en route to Sanford’s second straight win.  The Mainers gave the right-handed hurler early run support.

Hall's ready for her next big leap

Sport: Track And Field  Message Board

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Lake Region High School superstar Kate Hall – you never want to use that word, “superstar,” too willy-nilly, but in this case, it actually might be too feeble a description – is taking a break from track.

 

Don’t worry, though, fans; it’s just a little R&R. Hall, of Casco, will get back to training, competing and probably winning (to say nothing of setting new records) soon enough.

 

“I train, like, 11 months out of the year, so this is my one month where I don’t do anything,” Hall says. “It’s really just to let my body recover and calm down before I start up again.”

 

When Hall does return to her training, it will be with her high school career completely behind her, and her college – and Olympic – careers on the horizon.

Maine/Nebraska Friendship Series: Maine shines

Sport: Wrestling  Message Board

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Maine wrestlers' confidence was high and the Pine Tree State contingent refused to let up en route to its most successful showing ever in the 31st annual Maine/Nebraska Friendship Series.

 

Mainers gained some momentum and it turned in to a snowball effect, which was certainly dominating and decisive. At the first of four venues through out the Cornhusker state, the Maine continent rolled to a 65-10 win at Fairbury Jeffs Gymnasium It is Maine' biggest margin of victory in the history of the exchange. The Maine momentum continued with wins at Hastings, 62-12, and Central City, 81-13. The final meet at Columbus was billed as the most competitive, however, Maine held its own.

N.H. track beckons for Pro All-Star Series drivers

Sport: Auto Racing  Message Board

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Since its inception in 2001, the Pro All-Star Series has taken Maine’s top stock car drivers throughout New England, Canada and even south of the Mason-Dixon Line for PASS South events.

 

But the series had never held a race at New England’s premier track, the tight-turned one-mile New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, New Hampshire.

 

That changes this weekend. The AIM PASS Super Late Model 60-lap feature will be held Sunday, with a full day of practice Saturday.

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

ORONO, Maine — University of Maine field hockey head coach Josette Babineau described her incoming eight-member class as “very talented and experienced” in a news release Thursday.

Wahlstrom opts out of verbal commitment to UMaine

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Oliver Wahlstrom has decommitted from University of Maine men’s ice hockey team according to Providence Journal writer Mark Divver.

 

It appeared that Wahlstrom would follow in his father’s footsteps after he made news in January 2014 that he had committed to the Black Bears as a 13-year-old. It was believed he was the first 2000-born college hockey recruit, making him the youngest player to commit to an NCAA Division I college.

A changing reality for the Senior League World Series

Posted: July 3rd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

After watching the recent blind draw for this year’s Senior League World Series, I was tempted to invite Nick Cowperthwaite and Jesse Colford to join me for the rest of the day at Hollywood Casino.

 

The two Bangor Senior League baseball players, representing Maine District 3, had been just that good at alternately picking baseballs out of a golden bin to place teams in the two brackets that comprise the modified double-elimination format to be used for the SLWS for the first time this year.

Posted: July 2nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

Months and months of practice dating back to the raw, damp days of autumn paid off over a couple of warm weekends in early June for the Maine Majestix field hockey club. For the first time, both its under-16 and U19 teams qualified for the National Club Championship next month.

 

The Waterville-based teams —with players from Cony, Lawrence, Messalonskee, Mt. Blue, Skowhegan, Winslow and Winthrop — both reached the championship game in their respective tournaments. The top two teams from the New England/New York region earned automatic bids to nationals.

Changes needed. At the old ball game

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 2nd, 2015 by Tom Nolette

It’s easier to get boys out to a skate park than a ballpark these days. For that matter, it’s easier to get them to go to a state park, national park, dog park, amusement park, water park, animal park, marine park and Jurassic Park before they will set foot on a baseball field with a ball, bat and glove in hand.

 

This isn’t going to be a eulogy for baseball because, despite what you’ve heard for the last 20 years or so, baseball isn’t dead. It isn’t even on life support. But it is getting knocked on its keister by a brushback pitch from whatever we’re calling the generation that has the rotten luck of calling my generation Dad.

SANFORD, Maine – The Sanford Mainers (8-9) outlasted the perennial NECBL power Newport Gulls (11-7) in a pitching duel with Mainers starterBen Greenberg (Fordham University)  tossing six scoreless innings against the league’s top offensive unit in a 1-0 win Tuesday night at Goodall Park. 

 

In part of big defensive plays for the Mainers and Greenberg’s (1-2) six scoreless innings of two-hit baseball with five strikeouts, the Moose were able to cling to the 1-0 victory in a 2014 NECBL Championship rematch.

Randy Small has coached hundreds of kids in his 19 years at the helm of the York High School football program.

 

Some kids he remembers more than others, while there are some that, when he hears their name, a wide smile goes across this face.

 

Jack Neary is one of those former players — a player who still, even though he graduated earlier this month, is a role model for the younger players in the York football system.

Post 188 bats go suddenly silent

Sport: Baseball  Message Board

Posted: July 1st, 2015 by Tom Nolette

SOUTH BERWICK, Maine — In June, the shift from spring to summer can be subtle, not defined by a day on the calendar as much as a state of mind.

 

For the Eliot Post 188 baseball team, that line of demarcation has been a little more stark. A team that hit all spring is not hitting now.

 

Made up of many of the players who led Marshwood High School to title contention in Western Maine Class A, Post 188 was held to just four hits Tuesday in a 5-2 loss to Saco-Biddeford Savings on the final day of the month.
