Game 1 - Shamrocks 4 - Federals 1
A great performance from both teams in this one, but a long three run shot from Shamrocks Matt DiBiase (NYIT) who was 2-for-2, was the decisive blow. Both pitchers were commanding through five but a hanging curve from his opponent gave the win to Joe Siringo (Villanova) who threw a complete game allowing one run on five hits with 14 strikeouts and only two walks. Elan Trischitta (Purchase) also went 1-for-2 with an RBI.
Winning Pitcher - Shamrocks - Joseph Siringo (1-0)
Losing Pitcher - Federals - Joe Crosser (1-2)
Federals Stephen Orso
Game 2 - Federals 6 - Shamrocks 2
A strong offense game from the Federals coupled with some Shamrocks miscues gave the win to Stephen Orso (St. John's) and the Federals. Orso went five strong innings allowing no earned runs with three strikeouts. German Dilone (Concordia) went 2-for-3 with a double off the right field wall and an RBI. George Cornielle (Nassau) went 1-for-3 with two RBIs. Nick Gargan (St. Thomas Aquinas) and Tom Smith (Marywood) also combined for three hits and an RBI.
