“I think some­times the harder a guy throws and some­times the bet­ter pitch­ing we see, the more we bat­tle, the more we con­cen­trate and the bet­ter at-bats we get,” Parisi said.

“You’ve got to make a play,” Stam­pone said. “It came down to we brought the in­field in Sean Weiss made a great pitch, we got a lit­tle pop up, the wind was blow­ing in [ weke] wabin­ski made a good read back and the ball just fell in front of him. We make that catch, that’s an out, the next ball is a ground ball and we’re out of the in­ning prob­a­bly. In­stead of a seven- run in­ning it’s a one- run in­ning.”

Tak­ing ad­van­tage of the non-league sched­ule, NT Ex- plor­ers and N5 Pa­tri­ots saw some kind of game ac­tion and had the game not have been short­ened Parisi would have had more play­ers en­ter the game.

“I de­spise the N0- run rule for that rea­son only,” Parisi said. “I would have liked to have got­ten a cou­ple other guys who haven’t seen a whole lot of ac­tion into the game, par­tic­u­larly there were a cou­ple of pitch­ers.”

With both teams near­ing the end of their sea­sons, the young Pa­tri­ots are look­ing to grow and learn lessons while the Ex­plor­ers look to be­come a deadly team come play­off time.

“The dif­fer­ence be­tween us and them is they’re not try­ing to pull ev­ery­thing, they’re go­ing the op­po­site way, they’re hit­ting balls in the gaps, op­po­site fiHlG JDSs,” SWDPSRnH sDLG. “That’s some­thing we can GHfinLWHly lHDUn IURP WKHP.”

“The whole team is do­ing well [and] we’re go­ing to be one hell of a team to play when the play­offs hit,” Pi­card said.
