Re-Max has officially become the hottest team around in Wayne County Teener League action. The Renegades have reeled off four straight wins and now sit alone atop the regular season standings.
After a sluggish start to the season, Re-Max is now officially the hottest team on the Wayne County Teener League Baseball scene.
The Renegades have reeled off four consecutive wins and climbed to the top of the local Babe Ruth standings...thanks largely to an explosive offense.
Over the course of the last two weeks, Re-Max has averaged more than 12 runs per outing in defeating the Stars (10-5), Waymart (10-3), Eagles (12-6)?and Tusten Chiefs (17-7).
Next up for the red-hot Renegades is a re-match with Tusten. Weather permitting, that game is set for a 6:00 p.m. start Thursday evening in Beach Lake.
Re-Max’s latest victory came last Thursday night in Narrowsburg.
The Renegades rocked the defending champion Chiefs by a 10-run margin. Alex Evanitsky, Kevin Miller and Jon Gillow led the way offensively.
Evanitsky enjoyed a perfect 4-for-4 outing. Alex roped a single, two doubles and a homerun. Miller and Gillow chipped in with three basehits apiece, while Pat Hart contributed two safeties.
Logan Freiermuth capped a huge Re-Max rally by smoking a bases-clearing double in the fifth.
Hart earned the starting assignment, but needed a bit of relief help from teammates Josh Taylor and Miller, who eventually recorded the win.
Taylor turned in a stellar performance earlier in the season. Josh worked five dominant frames in the win over Waymart. He allowed just one hit. Gus Martin came on in relief to close things out.
At the plate, Nick Maritato terrorized Waymart pitchers. The veteran slugger ripped four hits in as many at-bats.
Gillow and Carney added two base knocks apiece.
In a convincing win over the Eagles, Miller picked up the decision with help from Hart in relief.
This game featured a balanced offensive attack as Carney, Hart, Maritato, Miller, Gillow and Taylor each had two hits.
