Deer Isle—The boys baseball team lost by one run scored by Southern Aroostook at the bottom of the eighth inning in its preliminary playoff game on June 6 for a final score of 9-8 and a final 7-10 season record.

The Mariners beat Machias 8-4 on May 30. Mason Oliver pitched most of the game with Silas Bates finishing up to keep Mason’s pitch count down. We were tied 3-3 after four innings when we scored 4 runs to give us some breathing room. Ethan Shepard had a double and a single, Colby Haskell 2 singles, Mason Oliver a double, and Tobey Snow, Steven Cochrane, and Robby Turner each had a single.

The boys beat Jonesport 16-2 on May 29. We started slow, tied 2-2, but busted loose in the third inning with 8 runs on a combination of hits, walks, and errors. Ethan Shepard pitched a strong game highlighted by good play in the outfield from Kinsey Bartlett. Silas Bates had a triple and a single, Tyson Rice and Tobey Snow each had a double and a single, Robby Turner had a triple, and Ethan Shepard had a double.

The boys lost to Bangor Christian 7-2. It was a tight game for five innings as we trailed 2-1 when BC scored 4 runs in the bottom of the fifth on a walk, a couple errors, and a couple hits. We staged a rally in the sixth, getting a run back and threatening for more, but we didn’t make it. This was a big game for Heal Points for us if we could have won.

We hit the ball hard, but it went at their players and not in the gaps. Mason Oliver. Tobey Snow, and Ethan Shepard each had singles, plus we got a few walks, but BC’s defense committed only one error, and we had limited base runners.

We have been playing better in the last part of the season, winning 5 of 7 in the last part of the regular season, with one of the losses a close game with George Stevens.
