[email protected] Catcher Dakota Chipman of the George Stevens Academy Eagles reaches for the ball as a Washington Academy runner scores.BANGOR — “Get me one run,” junior righthander Gabe Feeney urged his Washington Academy teammates in the first inning of Tuesday’s Eastern Maine Class C baseball final.That run, which came in the second inning, prove to be all that Feeney would need as he pitched a four-hit, 3-0 shutout over the George Stevens Academy Eagles at Mansfield Stadium.The fourth-seeded Eagles, who split with the second-seeded Raiders in two regular season games, mounted a major threat in the first inning.Freshman Garrison Looke stroked a one-out double to center field and Anthony Bianco reached base on the Raiders’ only error of the contest.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textFeeney struck out the next batter, but walked junior Will Ricker to load the bases before getting junior Hank Vinall on a fly ball to center.The Raiders to a 1-0 lead in the second inning as sophomore Cameron Varney doubled off GSA righthander Kesley Allen.Varney moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by junior Jared Taylor and scored on an infield groundout by senior Ethan Sawyer.In the fourth inning, the Raiders added two more runs, with plenty of help in the form of three GSA errors.Senior Fred MacLean drew a leadoff walk and went to second on an errant pickoff throw.Junior Colin Pineo then reached base on a fielding error, and one out later, Jared Taylor singled to drive in MacLean.Sawyer followed with a grounder to short and the throw to second was wide of the base, allowing Pineo to race home with the second run of the inning.Allen beat out an infield single to ignite another threat by the Eagles in the top of the fifth.After senior Finn McMahon-Allwine flied out to center, Looke singled for his second hit of the game, sending Allen to third.But the GSA pitcher was cut down at the plate when he tried to score on a grounder to third and Feeney struck out the next batter to end the inning.In the bottom of the fifth, junior Kyle Taylor had a leadoff double for the Raiders and went to third on a wild pitch.But Allen retired the next three batter, and it was three up, three down for both teams the rest of the way.Allen pitched well in defeat, scattering just five hits over six innings and walking just one batter.With good control of both his hard fastball and an overhand curve, Feeney struck out nine GSA batters and walked just two in his winning effort.The Raiders upped their record to 15-4 in moving on to Saturday’s state final, and GSA closed out its season with a 14-5 record.Find in-depth coverage of local news in The Ellsworth American.

Frank Kaminsky SI 6Wisconsin star Frank Kaminsky is currently manning Sports Illustrated’s Twitter account to field questions from fans, and the results have not disappointed. Fans have asked everything from his favorite teams and musicians, to his underwear preferences, to the classic Reddit question about duck-related preferences when it comes to a fight. We already knew that Kaminsky was the best. This just confirms it. Whichever team lands Kaminsky in the draft is getting one of the most entertaining guys available…and a pretty good center as well.

VICTORIA – The Green party will not run a candidate against NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh in the riding of Burnaby South.Green Leader Elizabeth May says the decision is an extension of a “leader’s courtesy,” a long-standing Canadian parliamentary tradition that facilitates a newly elected party leader’s entry to the House of Commons in an unopposed byelection.She says in a statement the Greens believe it is right to step aside to allow the leader of “an important part of the political spectrum” to serve in Parliament.Singh announced his candidacy for the federal riding after New Democrat MP Kennedy Stewart indicated he was stepping aside to run for mayor of Vancouver.The Liberal and Conservative parties have not announced candidates in the riding, but the Liberals have said they will contest the byelection.May received the leader’s courtesy in 2008 when then-Liberal leader Stephane Dion chose not to run a candidate against her in Central Nova. She extended the same gesture to Dion.In 2002, the Liberals and Conservatives stepped aside for Stephen Harper when he ran in a byelection held shortly after he became leader of the Canadian Alliance.No date has been set for a byelection.Singh sat in Ontario’s legislature and served as the provincial NDP’s deputy leader before he replaced Tom Mulcair as the federal leader.
