St. Peter Marian Downs Milford in Baseball Playoffs

The Milford varsity baseball team's season came to an abrupt end on Tuesday, June 5, at home against St. Peter Marian after falling to the Guardians by a final score of 10-4. "They hit the ball better, their pitching was better, and their defense was better," said Milford head coach Steve Manguso.
The Hawks were led into their MIAA playoff game against the Guardians by starting pitcher Jarrod Casey. The senior started strong, but couldn't finish after a rough sixth inning in which St. Peter Marian scored eight of its 10 runs. Casey went five and two-thirds innings, giving up six earned runs and striking out seven. "I thought his (Casey) velocity was off a little bit," said Manguso. "We had a couple of chances to get out of that big inning and we just couldn't do it."
The Scarlet Hawks were propelled by strong pitching all season, but were let down in their losing effort against the Guardians. JJ Branch relieved Casey in the sixth and did not record an out, allowing three inherited runners to score before being taken out in favor of Steve Morganelli.
Morganelli threw the ball well for Milford and limited the damage, working three and two-thirds innings of shutout ball with three strikeouts. Despite Morganelli's strong performance, the damage was already done and was simply too much for the Scarlet Hawks to overcome. The Guardians batted through the order and showed off some of their speed and power with a homerun and two triples in the inning.
"I thought they got some big hits," said Manguso. "They got a homerun and a triple in the inning, what can you say?"
Milford had some big hits of its own against the Guardians and were led offensively by senior first baseman Matt Ferrelli. With three singles and a RBI, Ferrelli finished his season strong.
While St. Peter-Marian moves on to the semi-finals, Milford finishes its season with a 17-4 record and will hope to continue building towards the ultimate goal of a state championship next year.
"It's always going to be tough unless you win a state championship," said Manguso. "This was a good team and it was just one game."
