The DePhillips Sports 16 and under baseball team traveled to Cooperstown along with the Queens Dodgers to play an exhibition doubleheader on historic Doubleday Field this past weekend.
DePhillips Sports, based in Bayside, swept the two-game set, taking the first game 8-3 and the nightcap 10-3. John DeCicco, a Briarwood resident out of St. Francis Prep, got the win in the first game, allowing just four hits.
St. Francis Prep teammate Dan Pudjak got the win in the second game, also allowing four hits. Pudjak, who lives just over the Queens border in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, helped himself at the plate, smashing two RBI-doubles.
Offensively for DePhillips Sports, James Aichinger, another St. Francis Prep student out of Bayside, was 4-for-6 in the two games, while Mike Hennessey, a Glen Oaks native who also attends St. Francis Prep, was 3-for-5 with four RBIs and a long home run.
James Tsirnikas, a Flushing resident and fellow Terrier, contributed to the offensive onslaught, going 3-for-6 with four RBIs.
Defensively for DePhillips Sports, shortstop Jeremy Hyatt, out of Glen Oaks and Cardozo, and second baseman Rich Romeo, out of Glen Oaks and Molloy, turned two key double plays when the Dodgers were threatening. Floral Park High School
