MAHOPAC, N.Y. – The Mahopac 12U baseball team is off to a rousing start to its 2020 summer season, with the Indians prevailing in six of their first seven games.
Mahopac traveled to Putnam Valley on Sunday, and left with a 17-5 victory, and the team rolled to easy victories over the Rockland Volcanoes (12-2 on Friday), and Poughkeepsie (16-0), one day earlier on the road.
“The team has been playing pretty well, and hitting the ball well,” coach Anthony Sacco said. “They’ve all been batting well. Nate Mascoll has been batting over .700 for us, with 4 home runs and 9 RBI. He’s our big bat and has been hitting really well. Ryan Sacco is also over .600 and has been great, and Jovani Segarra is also over .500, and has been pitching lights out.
“Lou Girau, you can’t get him out,” the coach added. “He’s got 9 hits in 14 at bats. He’s one of our new additions, and has been great. RJ Grebeklis has been great getting on base, and Cass Sabbie is another new player who’s been doing very well, batting .500 with some big RBI.”
Sunday against Putnam Valley, Sabbie had 5 runs batted in on 3 hits, Grabeklis had 3 hits and 2 RBI, Sacco and Matthew Bentivenga each drove in 2 runs, and Segarra picked up the victory on the mound with 4 innings of work, and 4 strikeouts.
Friday in Mahopac against the Rockland Volcanoes, Sacco and Segarra each had 3 hits. Segarra drove in 5 runs, and Mascoll and Grieve (who also earned the win on the mound) each had 2 RBI.
Thursday at Poughkeepsie, Santoro picked up the win on the mound and also drove in 3 runs. Mascoll and Grieve each had 2 RBI in the win.
“They’re hitting, fielding, and pitching so far,” Sacco said. “Right now the team is clicking on all cylinders. We’ve only played seven games so far, but I think 6-1 is phenomenal. We’re having a lot of fun.”
Mahopac was scheduled to host Armonk Thursday at 6 p.m., and the team travels to Cortlandt for a 10 a.m. game Sunday.
