Seaford – The 14U Long Island Prospects beat the Franklin Square Colts under the lights at Seaman’s Neck Park last night, 14-2, in a 9-inning game that counts as two games in the standings, and only went to the 7th frame due to run-rule. The Prospects were the benficiaries of 12 walks and 4 errors to go along with 6 hits.

Prospects starting pitcher Tyler Manger was very effective allowing just 2 hits and 1 earned run in his 6 innings of work. The defense was shaky at times but did enough to limit damage while the offense took advantage of the breaks they were given.

The ’Spects got the scoring started in the second inning when Alex Rodriguez got things going with a hard hit ball that was too hot to handle by the Colts second baseman. Three walks and an error led to a 3-0 lead.

Chris Wasson led off the 4th inning with an infield hit. Another error and two more walks brought a run in and loaded the bases. When a ball into right center field off the bat of Matt Conry was misplayed into a double, Franklin Square threw the ball around, Conry scored clearing the bases, and the Prospects led 8-0.

The Colts got on the board in the home 4th converting a couple of singles into a run.

A hit-by-pitch to lead off the bottom of the 6th and an error led to another Franklin Square run, 8-2.

The horseshoes flew off for the Colts in the Prospects’ 7th when four walks and a hit-by-pitch were followed by a 3-RBI double by Nick Valeriano, and a base hit by Manger to drive in Valeriano with the sixth run of the inning.

The 14U ’Spects remain undefeated playing up in the 15U NJBL Spring American league.
