YARMOUTH — The Yarmouth baseball team hopes to repeat history and the rest of Class B South is well aware of what the Clippers are capable of when the calendar flips to June.

Monday afternoon, the defending Class B state champion hosted Freeport in the regular-season finale for both teams. In what could be the first step in another memorable run, the Clippers rode a strong pitching performance from Luke Waeldner and timely hitting from Jack Romano and Ben Norton to beat the Falcons, 4-1.

Yarmouth not only ended the regular season on a high note, improving to 9-7, but also moved up in the Class B South Heal points standings.

“There’s still a huge ceiling that we can hit,” said Yarmouth Coach Marc Halsted.

“We’re hitting the ball hard and today, we got a big hit in a big spot.”

Two weeks after taking the loss at Freeport (the Falcons beat the Clippers 4-2 on May 16), Waeldner held the Falcons (10-6) scoreless over the first three innings.

The Clippers took a 2-0 lead against Freeport starter Shea Wagner on a first-inning sacrifice fly by Norton, and Romano’s two-out single in the second inning.

Josh Burke hit an RBI double in the fourth for Freeport, but Yarmouth catcher James Waaler caught Eriksen Shea trying to steal third to end the inning and the Falcons never seriously threatened again.

“That was huge to end the inning,” Waeldner. “We’re gaining momentum as we go.”

After stranding nine runners through five innings, Yarmouth finally came up with a big hit in the bottom of the sixth.

With Waeldner on second and Waaler on first with one out, Romano lined a single to right-center for an insurance run.

“I thought I might be coming in to close, so I wanted to make it easier for myself,” Romano said. “I wanted to put a good swing on the ball and hit it to right-center. It felt good to give Luke that extra run. He deserved it.”

Norton then popped out to second baseman Heath Cockburn on the outfield grass, but Waaler was able to come home to extend the lead to 4-1.

In the top of the seventh, Waeldner gave up a two-out single to Jack Sawicki, then had to leave the game after eclipsing the 110-pitch threshold.

Romano ended it by getting Shea Wagner to ground out to second, where Jason Lainey made a nice play on a tough hop, for the third out.

Waeldner improved to 3-2, giving up four hits and four walks and striking out 13. He also had two hits and scored two runs.

“Luke threw 80 percent first-pitch strikes and struck out 13 and like he always does, he competed his tail off,” Halsted said.

Romano got his third save and had two hits and two RBI. Norton drove in two runs, and Waaler had two hits and scored twice.

Wagner fell to 3-2, giving up four runs (two earned) on 10 hits.

The Falcons only had four hits and made two errors. They finished the regular season on a three-game skid.

“It’s the worst feeling 10-6 ever, but these guys have short memories,” Freeport Coach Bill Ridge said.

“If we show up, we can beat anyone.”
