THE SOTHEBY’S SOX PLAYOFF HOPES ENDED BY THE MARINERS.

The Red Sox just didn’t have what it took to pull off a victory in our first and only playoff game of the 2009 season. We had 5 absent players but the team came out slugging to take an early 2-0 lead but couldn’t hold on. Price Nicolas had a shaky start pitching. Joshua Pontes couldn’t find his zone as the reliever and began walking in runs. Price came back in and brought the heat but then our fielding fell apart. After the first inning the bats went dead. The Mariners came to play with great pitching and some very fine fielding plays. They also came in with the momentum of beating the second place Rangers and the scrappy White Sox earlier in the week. Even playing with only eight kids on the field for the last 3 innings they dominated the Red Sox handily beating us 11-2. Sadly, The 2009 season is now over for the Sotheby’s Sox.

SOTHEBY’S RED SOX END ON TWO HIGH NOTES!!

The SE Red Sox won both games of a double header against the SE Mariners. The first game was a tight pitching duel driven by the arm of Price Nicolas and the relief pitching of Joshua Pontes resulting in a 1-2 victory. The hitting highlight was Rudy Almonte’s double.One of the prettiest hits of our season. Joshua Pontes also got a double to put the go ahead run in place. The Sox played one of the best games of this season. The team held tough against a formidable opponent in the Mariners.

The second game was all Red Sox. Alfredo Ortiz held the Mariners to 4 runs in a 10-4 victory. Zoe Messier was hit by a fast pitch only to come up at her next at bat and get her first hit of the season, a straight drive that straddled just inside the first base line and held fair into deep right field. Darmin Costillo made a fantastic catch on a blistering line drive to get one out and then threw out the runner at first who was off the base, turning an inning ending double play. Darmin also hit a triple driving in two runs and solidifying our lead. Alfredo Ortiz also hit a triple to give the Sox command of the game. The Mariners went through 4 pitchers and were unable to stay centered and the Red Sox kept their heads, and hearts, in the game assuring our victory WELL PLAYED TEAM AND A GREAT END TO THE SEASON! Bring on those playoffs!

SOTHEBY’S RED SOX SCORELESS AGAINST THE SE RANGERS.

The SE Sox went without a run for the second game in a row. Our bats were no match for the pitching of the Rangers Cole Koeppel. We knew the Rangers would be tough. They have beaten the two best teams, the Mets and Braves, handing them their first loses to become one of the best themselves. With a deep order of good hitters, good pitching and a fine manager in Coach Scott, they are tough to beat. The Sox highlights of the game were some good fielding by Cole Wennerholm, good pitching by Alfredo Ortiz and Joshua Pontes and Darmin Costillo continue to hit. We had fun but we need hits that bring in runs. The regular season ends this Saturday with a double-header against the Marinters. No team we can’t “go easy on them”.

THE SOTHEBY’S RED SOX CONTINUE THEIR SLUMP.

The SE Red Sox were blanked by the SE White Sox 4-0. We had great pitching by Darmin Costillo and some fantastic fielding all around the field by Zoe Messier on second base, (turned a double play!) , Cole W. on first, Bolivar Soto in left, Price Nicolas on third, and both Keith and Edmond Kwan. Despite fine pitching and fielding the White Sox blanked the Red Sox batters who were unable to bring the hits that bring runs home. Morale problems continue the plague this young team dragging them far below their known abilities.

SOTHEBY’S SOX BATTLE BACK AGAINST THE METS BUT COME UP SHY.

The Red Sox still struggle to find a pitching foothold and went behind early. The Mets were granted many walks and their lead was bolstered by rampant fielding errors by the Sox. Despite drawing first blood and an early lead the Sotheby’s team were down 13-3. Then the Sox bats came alive! Joshua Pontes got 3 hits including another monster home run. Rudy Almonte also got three hits and has come alive at the plate. Price Nicolas got 2 hits. After tying the game up at 13-13 the ump announced in the bottom of the 4th that the game was over the time limit and the Mets brought in one run to end this well-fought, tense, edgy, squeaker of a game. The final score was 13-14.

SE NATIONALS UPSET THE SOTHEBY’S RED SOX, TWICE!!

You never know what happens in little league and today was proof. Despite the SE Nationals only having eight players they beat the 12 Sotheby’s Red Sox players in the first game of a double-header, 13-3 . We had terrible fielding, an excess of errors and swung at junk balls. In the second game we came out swinging and took an early lead only to go behind. The star moment of the second game was Price Nicolas’s blazing pitching with a slow, smooth delivery. Other highlights of the day were Ulises Coronado’s two hits (his first of the season), Joel Soto’s first two hits of the season and Joshua Pontes huge, sailing, cleanly hit, home run. Congrats are in order for the SE Nationals!!

THE UNDEFEATED BRAVES GET THE BEST OF THE SOTHEBY’S SOX!

Well, some days you have it and some days you don’t. We lost 12-3. The problems started for the Red Sox after the Braves hit a first inning grand slam off three walks and the home run. But the zero out, bases-loaded triple play the Braves turned was the nail in our coffin and the momentum shift making a comeback out of our reach. Alfredo Ortiz just didn’t have his stuff today. We did have some decent hits from Joshua Pontes, Rudy Almonte and Alfredo. There were some bright moments of fine fielding by Bolivar Soto, Price Nicolas, Alfredo and Joshua. Better luck next time and for our double header this Saturday.

SOTHEBY’S RED SOX OVERTAKE THE GIANTS 19-3!

The SE Red Sox came out swinging and overtook the struggling SE Giants. Once again, Alfredo Ortiz got the game ball with two fine innings pitched with 4 K’s, 9 RBI, and two runs. Darmin Costillo pitched a shaky first inning but recovered to give the Sox some good pitching and hit for 1 RBI and three runs. Joshua Pontes made some fine plays and got 1 RBI and 3 runs. Edmond Kwan got his first hit of the season. Price Nicolas made his pitching debut finishing the last inning with three strike outs.

METS BEAT THE SOTHEBY’S RED SOX 11-7.

The SE Mets came out swinging with a seven run first inning. Our Red Sox made some great fielding plays, particularly by Bolovar Soto, but couldn’t get the bats in the game till late. Joshua Pontes pitched 2 fine innings, Darmin Costillo got some clutch hits and Alfredo Ortiz pitched 2 nearly flawless innings and knocked in some runs. Despite a late rally in the last inning the Red Sox came up short.


GIBSON SOTHEBY’S RED SOX BEAT THE SE WHITE SOX!

The SE Red Sox got our first win of the season by beating the SE White Sox 6-5. The team played GREAT! Alfredo Ortiz made an unassisted double play and pitched relief in the sixth preserving our lead on three strikeouts. Darmin Castillo pitched well for three innings while fielding a double play. He also got an out despite the ball knocking off his glove. We made baseball cards catching the team’s faces with the fresh glow of victory. See the baseball cards here!


OPENING DAY AND FIRST GAME 2009!!

The weather held out and it turned out to be a great opening day for South End Baseball and our team. The parade was a huge success. Sadly, we lost our opening game 5-0. There was some great fielding by the Sotheby’s Sox but the SE Rangers had the pitching that kept our bats quiet for the whole game. If you want to see us in action and cheer us on you can check our schedule here. We’d love to see you and stay tuned for more updates to come.
