Winning pitcher Ty Powell went the distance(6 innings) for SEG. WG went with Mark Leake, Nino Marrero and Adam Causey…..Marrero had to leave the game when he took a shot off of his shin and we all hope Nino is OK….SEG was up 1-0 after one inning and then WG lead 4-1 after two, but then SEG put up 11 big runs in the third and it was on and going SEG’s way…..

  • Umpiring said,

    Both teams played well tonight but this would have been a closer game if the umpiring was fair on both sides. It seemed as if the umpires were out to get Western tonight

  • Alias Smith & Jones said,

    From the play-by-play, it appears that Smith and Jones did not play for western—–that makes a difference, but not 10 runs—the umpiring in this area has always been bad!!!!

  • craig said,

    Does anyone have a violin???

  • ron said,

    I can not understand how anyone who saw that game could blame the umpires for Westerns lost.

  • Andy said,

    Casey Jones made it to the play-by-play at the top of the order and based on my lineup sheet from the SWG-WG game, Smith should have been the #3 batter and not Turkson twice, but sometimes the software can do some crazy things.. I noticed it last night and was wondering how Turkson got in there for back-to-back at bats, and I will try and rectify that later on this morning….

    Not trying to take anything away from Smith, but sometimes you have to go with the glitch that brung you to the plate(Computer info availablity.)…….I will be on that adjustment this morning….

  • sefan said,

    I thought the umpiring was outstanding last night. There were close calls for both sides but the umps do not score 11 runs for you in one inning. Some on the other side complained about a call at third when your kid dropped the ball. Come on guys…you have a strong team but your team was beaten soundly last night.

  • ???? said,

    And they say the CITY schools get on here and make excuses …. Apperared to be a pretty evenly called game. Maybe it was the umps from previous games when some of WG athletes showed less than admirable composure toward the umps. or maybe it was : 3rd Inning (11runs – 8 Hits,3 walks ,1 hit batter, 2 Errors)

  • Ron said,

    No body said that the umpire gave them 11 runs but I know that Western would have been out of that inning if the umpire made the right call at first when Parsells made a diving play and threw him out, and Macon threw the same guy out at second but he was called safe there as well. The umpire in the field has umpired 15 of their 16 games which I think is a little fishy. I have never heard a umpire talk to the players the way he did lastnight. He basically says to the WG shortstop Casey Jones that he was the cause of the big inning for SE lastnight. Also before the game even started he walked over to the WG dug out and demanded to see everyones helmet and bat, in the process he BREAKS Macon Smith, and Joe Turksons helmet. It seemed like he thought he owned the place. There is a rumor that Cecil (field umpire) has been seen riding home with one of the SE fans after a game. That seems a little fishy as well.

  • Andy said,

    I saw the umpire checking Macon Smith’s batting helmet at the SWG game on Wednesday night when Macon came to the plate….Looked like they took out a small piece from inside the helmet and then put it back in….Might have been a pad or something to that extent….

    What is about the batting helmets?????

  • Ron said,

    I know that was one of the reasons everyone was upset with the umpire in the field because Macons helmet was just checked the night before and it was fine then the next night it gets checked and the umpire deliberatly breaks it? What is the deal with that?

  • Dudley Alum said,

    LOL Now I see why the balk was not called by Cecil in our first inning vs Southeast.
    Also Cecil was chewing Tobacco is that allowed???????

    Whats up with that?????

  • Andy said,

    If you wear the blue, maybe you are prone to sneak a chew on the 3 and 2, when the payoff pitch is due and you must come through…..(Possible nerve/muscle relaxor?)

  • Almost Unwatchable said,

    Drove a distance to watch baseball get set back a ways; both teams hanging one offspeed pitch after another, both infields throwing it all over the place, WG’s hitters trying to drive offspeed slop out of the park instead of taking it back through the middle, etc. Not sure either team deserves the hype they get right now.

    SEG figured it out in the 3rd and started hitting the hangers hard to CF and the alleys; WG never did figure it out. That said though, when WG got a guy out there who simply kept his breaking ball down in the zone or in the dirt, SEG’s scoring pretty much stopped as well (though they still consistently hit it harder than WG).

    Only obvious bad call I saw was on a g-5 where WG’s 3b made the play of the day and got the runner by a step but base ump called the hitter/runner safe. Ump apparently had his mind made up that WG’s 3b couldn’t make that play; if it had been half-to-3/4 step closer it still should have gone to the defense…guy makes a play like that, majority of the time he gets the call (and he should).

    Was also a SB where it looked (to me) like the runner was out at 2b; WG’s catcher handled a breaking ball and put the throw on the bag so the runner tagged himself; whether he was out or not is debatable, but seemed like the base ump anticipated again…fast kid running, good jump, 80% of the pitches offspeed…not going to get him. I thought they did, but Blue saw it differently. This one too close to know for sure.

    The best thing about the night if you don’t care who won was the comedy right before the game started. For some reason (maybe it’s common around here?) the umpires basically did a shakedown on WG’s helmets and bats. Just before gametime, one of the umpires barked “helmets and bats, now” at the WG dugout. Apparently, they didn’t get what he was after, so in a few seconds he comes back again “I said, helmets and bats out here now.”

    In the process (safety check perhaps?), the guy who ended up being the base ump takes a WG’s players’ helmet, grabs an earflap and does that thing that looks like somebody trying to open a jar of pickles. Then he tosses it back to the kid and says “it’s cracked, it’s out”. The kid says “you just broke my helmet” and the ump says “that’s not debatable” (by then I was too busy laughing at this cartoon to tell if he meant his decision wasn’t debatable or the fact that he broke the helmet wasn’t, maybe it was both).

    The kid turns to some teammates and says “did you just see him break my helmet?.” The other kids, mouths hanging open, nod real slow looking from the ump to the kid with the broke helmet and back. Then the umpire says again “that’s not debatable.”

    The whole scene was so hilarious I forgot to check whether SEG got “equal treatment” or not.

    If the WG players let that pregame scene (which was hilarious if you don’t have to go buy a new helmet) and the close calls bother them that much, then they need to get mentally tougher in order to extend their season. They’re an athletic looking bunch, but they let the game get out of hand when they had several chances to minimize the 3rd inning damage, adjust their approach to the offspeed stuff at the plate, and mount a comeback. Their macho got in the way of their smarts.

    You’re going to encounter bad officials and good ones having a bad day at every level and as a player, you have no choice but to adjust because they are in charge out there, competent or not.

  • humm said,

    1. all helmets and bats are to be checked before games that is a major point of interest this year. Cecil did the same thing at Dudley when he cracked a helmet that was just worn the game before in by JV.
    2. No tobacco of any type are allowed even by the Umpires. This is grounds for immediate suspension. NCHSAA rules
    3. maybe its time someone addresses this fact with the booking agent or NCHSAA

  • segdad said,

    Bat and helmet checks have been done extensively and detailed at almost every game, if not every game, this season. Seems to be a point of emphasis. My son has a helmet with a tiny, hairline crack at the earpiece. You literally have to push in a little on the ear piece to see it, but it has been disqualified this year.

    Nobody is picking on Western….maybe it was the REALLY LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS FAN who kept yelling at the plate umpire from the first pitch and early in the game shouted “Just like the Dudley game” (or something similar) directly at the plate ump…..so loud that the ump took notice and pulled his mask off to look back and to see where it came from….the ump remained professional and did not asknowledge it further…….but, great way to make friends and get the close calls there Mr. SUPERFAN whoever you are. (by the way, that is sarcasm if you didn’t notice)……..umps are human, not perfect, but if you respect the tough spot they are in it is a heckuva lot better than trying to make them look bad from behind the fence….do that, and you are just hurting your kids team…….

  • segdad said,

    “There is a rumor that Cecil (field umpire) has been seen riding home with one of the SE fans after a game. ” was posted by Ron

    By the way, don’t be ridiculous and drop junk like that out there……whoever starts junk like that probably just got it handed to them by an opposing team. Be a grownup and take your loss and try to win the next time.

  • Alvin Karpis said,

    Best string of comments in a while..funny stuff on here if you don’t have a dog in the fight.

    To wit (from segdad):

    “REALLY LOUD AND OBNOXIOUS FAN who kept yelling at the plate umpire from the first pitch and early in the game shouted “Just like the Dudley game” (or something similar) directly at the plate ump…..so loud that the ump took notice and pulled his mask off to look back and to see where it came from….the ump remained professional and did not asknowledge it further…”

    Yeah, I can see how “Just like the Dudley game” would set an umpire off and make him want to whip off his mask and run somebody; we must get that insult addressed in the fan behavior video next season. Dang, I know a lot of players these days are divas but I didn’t know the umpires had gotten to where they can’t take heat either. Maybe he was complimenting the guy on a well officiated game vs Dudley and saying he was well on the way to another stellar performance…who knows. Why would an umpire pull his mask over something like that if he knew he was getting it right back there?

    Best part: the fan who lobbed the insult will probably feel like he ought to go throw himself in front of the Amtrak or something now cause he got called out for bad sportsmanship by a Southeast guy. This might be urban legend but I’ve heard for years that Southeast fans once heckled an opposing player so hard that he fired a baseball into a bleachers full of them. Truth or legend, you’ve got to know that you folks ain’t usually lauded for your sportsmanship.

    Priceless. Approaching Seinfeld levels.

    Yep Alvin, nice story there, and if you go over to Jamestown and wait under that bridge on a rainy night, you will see a ghost girl in white dress needing a ride home…………and she won’t be in the car anymore when you get to her house. It’s true……….HONEST.

  • sefan said,

    I don’t care who you are or what you say…Casey Jones is a cool name for a baseball player or an engineer.

  • mike said,

    segdad,
    get it right, its on a rainy “prom night” when she will hop in you car, geeezz!

    Cecil was chewing BBQ sunflower seeds not tobacco
