The Tigers hosted the Millbrook Mustangs on a cloudy and chilly opening day. The Tigers rolled their way to an 18-2 victory.
While Millbrook was able to jump to a quick two run lead in the top half of the first, this did not last long as the Tigers batted around in the bottom half of the inning pushing across nine runs. Suffield was then able to hold Millbrook scoreless the rest of the way, highlighted by Kennedy Morris’s strong pitching, a beautiful double play and a runner being cut down at the plate by Gianna Strange and Reeghan McCarty. Offensively all of the Tigers were involved led by McCarthy, Morris, Kyla Brogan, and Strange who all had multiple hits.
The Tigers will host Williston this upcoming Saturday on Rachel Carey Field. Thank you to the girls who made this a Good Day.

The Tigers hosted the Williston Northampton Wildcats on a beautiful day at Rachel Carey Field. It was a well played game with Tigers grabbing the win with some late inning magic.
Suffield took the lead early in the game with aggressive hitting right out of the gate. Kennedy Morris drove a sharp single to right field. While Kennedy was erased at second on a fielder’s choice, Reeghan McCarthy follwed with her second home run in successive plate appearances spotting the Tiges a 2-0 lead. The Tigers continued fierce hitting throughout the next few innings but could not quite get enough juice to push across another run.
Meanwhile Kyla Brogan took the circle for Suffield for the first time in her career. Kyla was sharp through three innings and was impressive with runners on the basepaths, picking up clutch outs when needed. Williston was able to push across a lone run in the third inning to slice the Suffield lead in half. Kennedy relieved Kyla in the fourth and Williston was able to scratch out single runs in the fourth and sixth innings to take the lead 3-2. In the bottom half of the sixth inning, Gianna Strange blasted a 2-2 offering from the Williston hurler over the centerfield fence, tying the score and reigniting the Tigers spirt. After Kennedy threw a clutch 7th inning to keep the score tied, Kyla came up big with a line drive single to right to start the bottom half of the frame. After the next Tiger was retired, Morgan Geisinger drew a walk setting the stage for newcomer Adrianna Bailey-Stewart. Adrianna fought off a number of good pitches before making contact and forcing a Williston error that allowed Brogan to scamper home from second with the winning run.
The Tigers were solid in the field with Lauren Egan and Lauren Dobler making solid catches in the outfield and Morgan cutting down a would-be base stealer. There was also strong hitting from Emily Killoran [2-3], Morris [2-3], Brogan [2-3], Bailey-Stewart and the aforementioned bombs from the Bash Sisters Strange & McCarthy.
Winning Pitcher: Morris [2-0]

This Wednesday, the Tigers traveled to Simsbury to face the Westminster Martlets. The game was well played by both teams with Westminster slipping past the Tigers 5-4 in extra innings.
Through the first three innings the game was scoreless. While a number of Tigers reached base, we just couldn't get the break needed to push across a run. On the mound Kyla Brogan was dominant through three innings, facing only 10 batters. In the bottom of the fourth inning a few Tigers mistakes led to opportunities for Westminster—plating them 4 unearned runs.
In the top of the fifth the Tigers answered with their best hitting inning of the year so far. Emily Killoran doubled to right center and advanced to third on Lauren Dobler's ground out. Kennedy Morris drew a walk and Kyla Brogan brought in Killoran with a single. Maeve Selvitelli came into run for Brogan, providing additional speed on the basepath. The next three batters, Reegan McCarthy, Morgan Geisinger and Adrianna Bailey-Stewart then combined on successive at bats to drive in three more runs and knot the score at 4. In this sequence, Geisinger provided a hitting clinic with a 12 pitch at-bat fouling off several good pitches before finding one she liked to drive it to the gap in right center. Unfortunately, from here the Martlet pitcher and defense bore down and we were unable to mount any serious threats for the remainder of the game. Kennedy relieved Kyla on the mound and held down the Martlets through the remainder of the regular frames.
As the game went to extra innings, a high pop-up along the left field line glanced off the glove of a streaking Lauren Egan. This put a Westy runner on third. The Tigers issued two intentional walks to load the bases to set up a force at the plate. The next Westy hitter was able to loft a ball over the drawn in Tiger defense to end the game. Overall a tough loss but a well-played game by both teams with the highlight being the Tigers resilience in coming back from a 4-0 deficit late in the game.
Suffield will travel to Taft this Friday to take on the Rhinos.
Taft pushed ahead with some timely hitting and took a 3-1 lead. At this point, the Tiger bats took over. Morgan Geisinger got aboard with a single, stole second base and scored on a Strange double. Killoran came in clutch again, driving Strange in with her third double of the day, and tying the score at 3. In the seventh inning Kyla Brogan and Reeghan McCarthy climbed aboard the double train, plating the go ahead run. Next, Morgan drove a 1-1 offering to the gap in left center and with an acrobatic hook slide at the plate recorded an inside the park home run—giving the Tigers some breathing room
On defense there were a few mistakes for the Tigers to clean up, but the game ended with Geisinger again making an acrobatic play at home, this time on defense, to tag out a Rhino after fielding a lightning rebound off Taft's short backstop. In the circle, Brogan and Kennedy Morris combined to keep the Taft hitters off balance and were clutch when it was needed most.
The Cushing Purple Penguins will visit Rachel Carey Field on Saturday for a rematch of last year’s semi-final.

The Tigers hosted Cushing Academy at Rachel Carey Field. The Penguin defeated the Tiger 5-1.
In the first inning Cushing picked up two while capitalizing on Tiger mistakes. In the bottom of the second inning Reeghan McCarthy cut the lead in half with a towering home run to center field reigniting the Tiger spirit. However, after a few scoreless innings the Pens were able to push across three more runs to put the game out of reach.
The Tigers will host Worcester Academy this upcoming Wednesday on Rachel Carey field.

Worcester was able to get on top early with some aggressive hitting taking a 1-0 lead in the first. It would have been more if not for a Maeve Selvitelli to Kyla Brogan to Morgan Geisinger double play on a fly ball to left. Worcester pushed across lone runs in the third and fifth innings. The Tigers held it close most of the game but could not generate much offense. The Hilltopers were able to grab two more runs in the top of the seventh with some timely and aggressive hitting—putting the game out of reach.
On offense, Emily Killoran had two hits and Maeve Selvitelli grabbed her first hit of the year. The Tigers travel to Hopkins tomorrow in hopes of ending the current two game skid.
