CHSAA baseball roundup: Farrell falls to Stepinac

Monsignor Farrell’s hopes of repeating as CHSAA Staten Island champions took a major hit on Thursday when the Lions gave up four runs in each of the fourth and fifth innings en route to a 9-3 loss to Archbishop Stepinac in White Plains.

Farrell (8-3) is now two games behind St. Joseph by the Sea, which crushed Salesian, 15-4, on Thursday with three games remaining. The two rivals clash Monday at the College of Staten Island, but Sea won both of the first two meetings and owns the head-to-head tiebreaker.

Farrell ace Joe Fiori, who last pitched in a one-hitter against Moore Catholic on April 29, struggled with his command. The senior gave up four earned runs on six hits, with two strikeouts and three walks in four innings.

Led by Carl Triano and Mike Annunizata, who drove in two RBIs apiece, Stepinac (11-4) broke the game open with a four-run fourth inning and the Crusaders tacked on four more runs in the fifth to take a commanding 8-1 lead.

Mike DiPaola was 3-for-3 with a run scored and Kevin Kelly had two RBIs for Farrell, which faces Iona Prep Friday afternoon.
