Congrats to the Brooklyn Tech Engineers. In the wake of BTHS’s stunning 10-0 victory over 2017 AA champions, Petrides HS (S.I.), the Engineers suffered no letdown in defeating Port Richmond HS (S.I.) today 6-0 at Bush Terminal Park. Jackson Morris (’19) threw a complete game 7 inning no-hitter (his 3rd for BTHS in his storied career to date, including last season’s 2nd round playoff game), striking out 12 on 89 pitches with only 2 walks. Morris was backed by great defense (e.g., a running catch by RF Jasper Stoddard ’19 fighting off the swirling winds) and aided by another great game called by catchers Kobe Lee (’19) and Andy Santella (’19). The Engineers needed Morris to hold down the fort as his Red Raiders’s opponent Eric Benedetto was equally stingy with the two teams tied 0-0 entering the 5th inning. But in the 5th, Benedetto lost command of the strike zone and the Engineers capitalized with 5 runs to give Morris the cushion he needed to close out the game. BTHS is now 5-1 in league play and solidified their hold on 2nd place in the Brooklyn AA League 1.5 games ahead of EBC/Bushwick (3-2) and a half game behind 1st place Harry Van Arsdale EC (5-0).
More Engineer highlights: With Frank Adams (’18) unavailable, Brett Borcherding (’20) filled in capably at 1B and contributed a single. Borcherding is now hitting .500 for the season. 2B Chris Vergara returned to action after suffering a bruised hand in the 1st game of the season going 1 for 2 and scoring a run. 1B Marco Gambino (’19), 3B Victor Riso (’19) and C Andy Santella (’19) also contributed hits for the Engineers. Go Engineers!
The Engineers baseball team stun #1 ranked and undefeated 2017 PSAL AA champion Petrides (S.I.) HS 10-0, ending their 24 game winning streak. Staten Island Petrides HS came to Brooklyn today ranked #1 in the entire PSAL AA division but ran into a buzz saw at the Parade Grounds.
