TROY, NY --- The Vermont Lake Monsters broke a 4-4 tie with four runs in both the sixth and seventh innings for a 12-8 New York-Penn League victory over the Tri-City ValleyCats on Tuesday night at Bruno Stadium.

Jacob Tanis, who went 3-for-5 with three runs, snapped the 4-4 tie in the top of the sixth with a two-run homer off reliever Kristian Bueno for his first home run of the season. Bueno struggled with his control after the homer as he walked two and hit a batter as the Lake Monsters scored two more runs on an error and Jordan Tripp sacrifice fly.

Vermont quickly loaded the bases with no outs in the seventh inning before a two-run double down the rightfield line from Aaron Shipman, who scored two runs and added three RBI. Two batters later Chih-Fang Pan collected his third single of the game to plate Nick Rickles and then Shipman scored on a fielding error by rightfielder Andrew Muren for a 12-4 lead. Tri-City was able to cut the lead in half with four runs in bottom of ninth, but Tanner Peters retired final two batters for his fourth save.

Sean Jamieson had given the Lake Monsters a 1-0 lead in the third with a two-out solo homer, his first home run of the season. After the ValleyCats got the run back in the bottom of the third, Vermont scored three times in fourth on a Chad Lewis sacrifice fly, wild pitch and a bases loaded walk to Shipman for a 4-1 lead. The ValleyCats again tied the game in the fifth with three runs, including a two-run homer from Jacke Healey.

The 12 runs were a season-high for Vermont (11-6), which is now 10-1 when scoring five or more runs in a game. T.J. Walz tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings for the victory in relief of starter J.C. Menna, who allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits in 4 2/3 innings.

Brandon Meredith went 4-for-4 with a double and triple for Tri-City (7-11), while former University of Vermont baseball standout Matt Duffy went 2-for-3 and his now hitting .338 (22-for-65) on the season for the ValleyCats.

Vermont, winners in six of its last eight, continues the roadtrip with a three-game series at Brooklyn beginning on Wednesday night at 7:00 pm. The Lake Monsters return home to historic Centennial Field on Saturday for a three-game series against the Staten Island Yankees through Monday.

Quick, exciting, and passionate: Watson is the epitome of a “Philly Guard”. His stats may not blow you out of the water, but he is a crunch time performer and will always make things interesting. Unpredictable, this guard can light it up or drop dimes all day.

McGlynn decides to stick with commitment to Vermont
Written by John Clayton   
Tuesday, 10 May 2011

Source: York Daily Record

In the end, Four McGlynn decided a coaching change was not enough to turn him away from Vermont.

The Dallastown basketball standout confirmed Monday he will stick with Vermont, the school he has signed to play at next year, despite the departure of coach Mike Lonergan to George Washington.

McGlynn said he talked and texted throughout the weekend with a handful of Vermont players. They assured him that, while Lonergan was leaving, the rest of the program would remain intact.

"They said they're going to have the biggest say in who the new coach was," McGlynn said. "The first thing that came to my mind was if Coach Lonergan is leaving, at least one or two of them are leaving, too."

Lonergan was officially named the new coach at George Washington on Friday, ending a six-year run with the Catamounts.

Pat McGlynn, Four's father, said that night it was possible his son would consider looking at other schools.

Instead, all Four McGlynn needed was a few days of reflection. The family took a walk on the campus of Towson University on Sunday. At one point, Four McGlynn turned to his parents and said, "This isn't Vermont."

"The (Vermont players) are texting him as he's going around," Pat McGlynn said. "He told me 'I think I've found a home in Vermont.'"

"Vermont is just such a high standard," Four McGlynn added. "It's a place I can see myself staying for all four years."

As Mike Lonergan flew to Washington, D.C., on Thursday, thoughts of a tremendous career opportunity likely raced through his head.

But Lonergan is also a man who likes to talk and think about the past, so it stands to reason he’s spent some time reflecting on his six years as the men’s basketball coach at the University of Vermont.

If so, he has reason to swell with pride.
