Vinny Caiazza was drained, emotionally and physically. He felt worn out. After his Madison baseball team was swept in its best−of−three, semifinal series against Monroe, falling 5−2 Sunday afternoon at KeySpan Park in Coney Island, it ended a long season, that although memorable was arduous.
Yet, he had this to say hours after it had concluded: “I’d like to play a game tomorrow. I’d like to see (next) season start tomorrow.”
Who could blame him?
Less than 24 hours after the Knights were blown out by Monroe, 14−4, they were back at it again, hanging tough for six innings, then nearly staging a miraculous rally in the seventh. Junior Eddie Lenahan was typically tough. The play behind him, shoddy the day before, was stellar. If not for the three tack−on runs the Eagles (19−2) put up in the top of the seventh, the two teams may be preparing for Game 3.
