St. John's intermediate baseball: Some notable relief work in 17-inning marathon


Peter Walker and Heather Healey combined for 12 and 2/3 innings of scoreless relief as the Sundance Feildians outlasted the Rona Storm 5-3 in a St. John’s Molson intermediate baseball that took 17 innings to decide at St. Pat’s Ball Park.

The Feildians got the winning runs in the 10th extra inning on two errors.

Nick Curran started for Feildians (3-5), giving up three runs before giving way to Walker, who went eight and 2/3 innings, striking out 13. Healey pitched the last four innings, striking out four, to earn the win. Neither she nor Walker gave up a walk.

There was outstanding relief work for the Storm (4-5), too, as Isaac Doyle, who took over for starter Tyler Hennessey in the fourth inning, went nine innings without surrendering a run. Daniel Hogarth, who took the loss, also had an interesting pitching line, walking nine and striking out as many in four-plus innings.

Hennessey had four hits to lead all batters, while Draven Moss had three hits for the winners.

Four pitchers combined on a two-hitter over five innings as the Knights walloped Gonzaga 14-3 in league play Wednesday night at St. Pat’s Ball Park.

Starter Randy Reid (1H, 1R, 1W, 1K) and winning pitcher Nick Williams (1R, 2W, 3K) each worked two innings, while Kobe Weir (1R, 1W, IK) and David Bugden (1H, 1K) combined on a single frame of relief work.

Only one of the runs surrendered by the Knights pitchers was earned.

Nick French had a double and a triple for the Knights (5-4).

Jack Biggs, the starter for Gonzaga (1-8) took the loss in a game shortened by two innings because of the league’s mercy rule.

A second game between the OMT Shamrocks and Holy Cross was suspended by curfew with the teams tied at 4-4.

The game, a battle between the top two teams in the league — the Shammies have a 6-1 record and Holy Cross is 6-2 — will be concluded at a future date.
