Coach Jay Hickey hasn't been satisfied with many wins this year, citing lack of good, clutch hitting. But he was in high spirits after Monday's 5-2 win over Plainville, where Dan Bouchard boomed a two-run homer ... the first homer in two years for RCP Legion.
What's funnier, Hickey almost gave Bouchard the bunt signal during the at-bat, as Kevin Post was on first with no out. Give the full story a read here.
Even though Post 75 won the zone title Sunday, coach Tim D'Aquila doesn't want them to slow down for a second:
We’re still trying to get wins,” D'Aquila said. “Every win you get, you’ll get a higher seed in the state tourney.”So he wasn't happy with a couple of errors in the sixth that gave away a 2-1 lead to Berlin. Decent pitching and a late lead, but the miscues were just too much. Full story here.
ALSO, for those who remember when D'Aquila filed a formal complaint about a batter who left the basepath then returned, an update from Bransfield: Turned down.
