A controversial ending to a great season.

Aug 16 2021 2:11AM

The Stoneham Sabers dropped a decisive game 5, 9-8 at Brandeis University. The Sabers had bases loaded and 1 out in the top of the 7th, when two controversial calls both went against the Sabers.  Curtis Tirone had a full count when a borderline strike went against Stoneham.  The Saber runner on first, lost track of the outs and ran on the pitch.  While that runner was caught in a pickle, Saber Luis Gil ran home from third.  Gil appears to be safe, as he slides by the Brighton catcher who tags him in the back.  Unfortunately, the umpire went against Stoneham again.  The video to the final play is  below:

Player/Manager Angelo Colucci said, "It is a shame the way the game ended. Gil appears to be safe, he tagged him in the back.  It is not the MLB, so we unfortunately can't go to replay.  It is difficult to umpire in such a high intensity situation and everyone makes mistakes.  In the end, the Sabers lost the series more than Brighton won, I truly believe that.  We had our chances and we should have not let it come down to an umpire's call."
 
In game 3 of the series, Captain Ryan Flanagan was cruising through the Brighton lineup, until he unfortunately had to leave the game due to a contentious collision at first base, that swung the momentum of the game and the series as well. 
 
It was a dramatic series indeed, and the Sabers will be back for vengeance.
