Diamondbacks Down Mets In Thriller
In the Major Boys Division, the New Hyde Park Wireless Diamondbacks met the Met Food Mets in their first playoff game. The Mets came out smoking, scoring two runs in the first inning and added six more in the fourth. But before the game started to slip away, Kevin Cheddie took over the pitching duties from Albert Marin.
Cheddie quickly put out the fire. With the bases loaded he was able to retire the side with brilliant pitching. Then the D-backs dug in for four runs in the bottom of that inning. Billy Gillespie continued his torrid hitting streak going 2-3 on the day while playing a solid shortstop. David Treminio also had a good game, belting a key hit late in the game and Mohammed Hashim was excellent catching as the game began drawing to a close.
But then the big hits of the game came off the bat of John Cacharani. With one out and the bases loaded in the bottom of the last inning Cacharani ripped a double into center field to drive in David Treminio with the tying run and Timmy Gallagher with the winning run.
Final score Diamondbacks 9 Mets 8.
The D-backs second playoff game took place on Saturday June 9 against the M & M Deli Cardinals. Randall Cruz had a hot bat that day. He batted .500 on the day. Andrew McCarthy also came alive at the plate. He is starting to hit like a veteran now. Mohammed Hashim pitched really well. He held the highly reguarded Cardinals to just 2 runs. However it wasn't enough. The D-backs now have their backs against the wall as they were defeated by a score of 6-2.
