DiDomizio pitches Shrub Oak to Baseball Title

SHRUB OAK, N.Y. -- Five pitches into the game, Shrub Oak pitcher Chris DiDomizio realized he was comfortable on the mound, which meant trouble for Peekskill. The 15-year-old left-hander pitched five scoreless innings, not allowing a hit, leading Shrub Oak to an 11-3 win over Peekskill in the Westchester-Putnam Baseball Association 18-and-under final at Lakeland, Saturday.

DiDomizio and Andrew Mitgang would combine on a two-hitter. Mitgang fueled the offense going 4 for 4, including two triples, with three RBI and three runs scored. DiDomizio only threw those five pitches in the opening inning.

“I felt good coming in,” said DiDomizio, a sophomore-to-be at Lakeland High School. “In the bullpen before the game, my curveball and changeup were on, as was my fastball, so I felt I would be able to locate my pitches well.”

Not only did DiDomizio have command of his stuff, he credited his defense with helping him out. “Andrew Mitgang made a diving catch in the fourth inning to save the no-hitter and Thomas Harten made a couple of real nice plays also,” DiDomizio said.

Shrub Oak gave DiDomizio a quick lead with three runs in the first inning. DiDomizio aided his own cause going 3 for 3 with two runs and an RBI. Stephen Harten contributed two hits and two RBI. Nick Soto broke up the no-hitter with a run-scoring triple in the sixth inning. Soto would score on Kevin Slocum’s single to left.
