T.J. Pecoraro
7/7/2009 4:08:12 PM   East Coast Select RHP T.J. Pecoraro (2010, Half Hallow Hills HS, NY) was outstanding at the Perfect Game National Showcase last month and just about as good last week at the 18U National Championship last week. 

He trumped both those outings today with a 7 inning complete game no-hitter against the Knoxville Thunder this afternoon.  The 6-0 right hander stuck out 14 hitters while only issuing 1 walk.  Pecoraro pitched mostly with his fastball, which was consistently 90 mph with very good life, and occasionally mixed in a 78 mph curveball.

Hills West wins thriller in 11 innings


If the first game I covered of the Suffolk Class AA playoffs is any indication, it's going to be a fun, competitive tournament. It was an entertaining game between host No. 5 Centereach and No. 12 Half Hollow Hills West on Tuesday afternoon and Hills West pulled out a 7-5 win in 11 innings in the first round of the double-elimination tournament.
So much happened and much is documented in the story in Wednesday's Newsday. We'll start in the top of the 11th inning. Michael Blumenthal went 4-for-5 with a walk and two RBIs, including the game-winning single with one out to make it 6-5.
"He has great balance at the plate," HHHW coach Tom Migliozzi said of Blumenthal. "There’s nothing he can’t hit. With his speed and quick bat, he’s a tough out."
Said Blumenthal: "I was just going for a sac fly and wanted to put the ball in play with one out. It was a fastball at the letters."
Blumenthal would score on a double by T.J. Pecoraro to make it 7-5.
Max Greenough, who went 4-for-6 with two RBIs, pitched the final three innings to get the win. He struggled in the ninth and 10th innings before getting three consecutive grounders to end the game.
“We had them every single time,” Greenough said, “but I made bad pitches. They gave me a two-run lead, so I couldn’t blow it a third time so I threw curveball after curveball.”
Greenough made it 4-3 in the 9th with a single before Kenny Willms hit a leadoff homer in the bottom of the inning. The next two batters reached before a sac bunt was turned into a 1-5-3 double play. Greenough got a grounder to force the 10th inning.
Jon Lusterberg hit an RBI double in the top of the 10th inning to give West a 5-4 lead before Andrew Abreu hit an RBI single to tie the score at 5 in the bottom of the inning.
"Both teams did a great job executing and making the fundamental plays," HHHW coach Tom Migliozzi said. "That’s what kept the game going. No one was making that big error to end the game."
Centereach kept it going with some big performances. Pecoraro, a hard-throwing righthander, was handed a 3-0 lead and even the most optimistic Centereach fans were worried. Pecoraro went eight innings, but had trouble in the fourth inning. With one out, Matt Dixon and Willms singled and Tyler Bowne hit a ground-rule double to slice the deficit to 3-1. Bret DeRosa made it 3-2 with an RBI groundout.
Centereach tied the score at 3 in the fifth when Cody Lohsen, who led off with a single, scored on a single by James Milani to rightfield. Pecoraro was throwing very hard, seven of the eight hits Centereach got off Pecoraro went to the opposite field. They could not get around on him
Vincent Messana, the starter for Centereach, did a great job after a rough first two innings. He allowed three runs and six hits in the first two innings. He threw five scoreless innings after that to keep his team in the game.
"We showed some resiliency," Migliozzi said. "We have a young team and it was real enjoyable to see them never give up."
