LEGION ROUNDUP: RCP gets first homer in recent memory, Middletown Post 75 drops the ball

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.

Middletown Post 75
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.
