Shoreham-Wading River’s entry into the Suffolk County Class A baseball finals was, in a word, grand.

With a place in the finals within its grasp, Shoreham-Wading River came out swinging and left no doubt about the outcome. The Wildcats scored 14 runs from 13 hits in the first two innings alone Saturday. That included a 10-run explosion in the second inning, which was highlighted by grand slams from Dean Stalzer and Brian Morrell. For Morrell, it was already his second home run of the game and sixth of the year as the top-seeded Wildcats eliminated No. 4 Mount Sinai from the double-elimination tournament, 16-4, at Kevin Williams Memorial Field in Shoreham. Mount Sinai’s other playoff loss also came to Shoreham, 3-2, on Wednesday.

Considering that Riverhead had opened the season with series against the three premier baseball teams in Suffolk County League III, it was quite conceivable that the Blue Waves could have started off with an 0-9 record.

Considering that Riverhead had a .194 team batting average in those first nine games (and was the victim of no-hitters by Half Hollow Hills East and Smithtown East), it’s rather surprising that the Blue Waves are 3-6 in league play.
