With three wins last week, the 11-year-old Whitestone Wanderers improved their summer season record to 7-1.

Last Thursday the Wanderers beat the Valley Stream Blackhawks, 7-0. Vincent Florido (4 innings), Mike Lowrey (1 inning) and Greg Polkowski (1 inning) combined to pitch a no-hitter. Only two Hawks reached base (on walks) in the game. In the fourth inning, Joey Depperman knocked in a run with a triple and scored on the “squeeze play” when Johnny Liquori laid down a perfect bunt.

On Saturday the Wanderers swept their doubleheader against the Valley Stream Redhawks. John Massa and George Zorrilla had three hits each to lead the Wanderers to a 15-4 win in game 1. Lowrey and Nick Zavattieri each had two hits and Mike Dinoto, Florido, Nick Lamonaca and Anthony Polito had a hit apiece. Polkowski pitched four strong innings and was the winning pitcher.

In the nightcap, Lowrey was 3-3 with two doubles and was the winning pitcher as the Wanderers won, 8-4. Lamonaca, Massa and Zavattieri each had a double and Depperman, Dinoto, Florido and Tony Zorrilla all had a single.

The 10-year-old Wanderers jumped out to a 2-0 record with wins against the Flushing boys’ club on Wednesday and the RGMV Twins on Friday.

Brandon Sheiner pitched a complete game shutout and had 10 k’s against the boys’ club. Mike Gallagher (four RBIs) and Chris Coppolino (two RBIs) had two hits each, and Anthony Andreani, Vinny Depperman, Peter Forgione, Nick Manetfa, Joe Marin and Sheiner had a hit each as the Wanderers won, 10-0.

Zavattieri hit a three-run homer and Tommy Regan had a solo shot as the Wanderers beat the Twins, 5-0. Andreani, Depperman and Gallagher had two hits each, and Patrick Thompson had one. Andreani was dominating on the hill as he held the Twins scoreless while striking out 13.
