Milford Baseball Misses Chances to Advance

Failing to cash in on golden scoring opportunities lead to a district quarterfinal exit for the Milford baseball team, said frustrated head coach Paul Pellegrini after his team's 2-1 loss to Greater New Bedford on Monday.
"You can't win games when you don't put pressure on somebody," he said. "We had our chances and it just didn't happen."
The Scarlet Hawks' season came to an end at 12-10 and included a return trip to the districts after a one-year absence as well as a first-round victory over Stoughton. MHS struggled to hit with runners in scoring position in both of their tournament games, going a combined 0-for-9 with the bases loaded and hitless in two opportunities Monday with runners on second and third.
Milford was able to push across a lone run in the fourth inning against Greater New Bedford when Nate Irwin, who had stepped in on the mound in relief of Aidan Wilde, singled, stole second, and came around on Wilde's RBI single. The home team pushed across a run in the bottom of the sixth, and Milford failed to score despite loading the bases with one out in the seventh.
The tournament run did include a first-round upset for the 13th seeded Hawks, when they upended the number four-seed Stoughton Black Knights on the road.
Alex Coady drove in theĀ game-tying run in the top of the seventh against Stoughton, and Wilde came around to score the winning run on a throwing error in the top of the ninth. Staff ace Alex Macek pitched 8.2 innings in the extra-inning affair, with Wilde coming on to record the final out, lifting Milford to a 3-2 upset victory over Stoughton in the first round of the Division 2 South Sectional tournament at Novello Field on Friday. The playoff game success was crucial for the 12 seniors as well as those who will be back next season.
"The younger kids saw it, they saw what is expected," Pellegrini said. "The senior class set a good tone for the future."
The Scarlet Hawks will lose a dozen members of this year's team to graduation, including cleanup hitter Zach Tamagni, team leader Anthony Arcudi, and Macek, who is set to continue his career at Clark University. Pellegrini said the seniors gave those coming back something to build on next spring.
"This was a really great step in the right direction to get back where we need to be," he said.
