The Baymen have had the misfortune of playing the top two teams in League VIII to start the season, which led to an 0-6 start. After being swept by Mattituck in the opening series of the season, Hampton Bays was swept last week by Babylon, which, like Mattituck, is 6-0 in the early going this spring.
Hampton Bays lost the first game of last week’s series, 3-2, at Babylon on April 7, then lost, 9-1, the following day at the Moriches Athletic Complex. In the series finale, back at Babylon, the Baymen lost, 14-7.
In the first game of the series, Hampton Bays had tied the game at 2-2 in the top of the seventh inning, but Babylon came right back. After Zach Carmody singled to lead off the bottom of the seventh, Ryan Matthews hit a walk-off double down the right field line to win the game for the Panthers.
In the series finale, Baymen Cameron DePierro and Tim Frost each hit home runs in a losing effort.
With the game tied at 4-4 in the third quarter, Port Jefferson had an errant pass go out of bounds, but the officials miscalled the play, according to Hampton Bays head coach John Armenia, and allowed the Royals to keep possession in their offensive zone. Brian Mark capitalized, scoring with four minutes remaining in the third to give Port Jeff the 5-4 lead and eventual victory over the Baymen.
Sean Grismer scored two goals for Hampton Bays, while Travis Flynn and Johnny Nolan each hit the back of the net. Ayden Muhs made nine saves in goal.
The Baymen fell to 2-2 in League IV, with 95.40 power points.
The Lady Baymen lost, 18-3, at home to Mattituck/Greenport/Southold on April 8, then lost, 17-4, at Harborfields on Friday.
