News and Announcements
The Lancers have put up 25 hits in the past 13 innings and it is showing! The team won today vs Merrimack 13-4 behind a 12 hit attack lead by Jack Dingman (3-4, 2 doubles), Zack Luongo (2-4), and Nick Cote (2-3, with a huge triple and two rbi’s). The Merrimack pitcher threw the ball well the first time through the order, but the boys made adjustments to get the results we needed.
On the hill Luke Marsh continued his strong season by going 5 innings of 4 hit baseball to get the win. Brandon Fish came in to close the game for the last two innings by striking out 4 and not allowing a hit. It was a solid win today and now it is time to move onto Trinity!
Nolan Lincoln deserved a better fate today. He threw well for most of the game, but his normally stellar defense was just not there today. Nolan gave up 1 earned run on the day, struck out 10 and walked nobody while giving up 5 singles. Normally that is a definite win, but it wasn’t so today.
At the plate Reece Manor’s approach was perfect. He used the opposite field with authority and hit the ball where it was pitched. Unfortunately the boys struggled overall with a good Concord pitcher. It was a close game today and one that much can be learned from if the boys are willing to learn.
Luke Marsh made his first start of the season on the mound vs Nashua South today. He more than answered the call! Marsh went 6 innings, 9 K, 0 BB, 3 hits to earn his first Varsity win. Brandon Fish came in to close out the win in the seventh.
At the plate the boys didn’t command the plate as much as they are used to, but they grinded out some quality at bats! Zack Rheault had a hit and two rbi, as did Chris Tutt! Nick Cote hit the ball hard all day to record 2 hits.
It was a good effort today and one step closer to where the boys want to get to!
Reece Manor’s complete game victory over Pinkerton Academy today was efficient and showed some true grit. Nothing bothered him in a very tense environment and he just went about doing his job. He pitched to contact and trusted his superb defense all day. It was a formula that worked well for the Lancers.
At the plate the boys just put the ball in play and let things fall where they will. Zack Luongo had 2 rbi. The whole team didn’t light up the stat sheet, but they hit the ball hard and forced the defense to make plays. Luongo was instrumental on one of the biggest defensive plays on the day. The Pinkerton batter hit a shot to CF over his head and tried to stretch it into a triple, Luongo retrieved the ball, made a perfect throw to Brandon Fish on the relay and they nailed the runner out at third! It was huge and kept the potent Pinkerton offense at bay a little bit.
It was a good win. Time to move on to South!
In what was best described as a “bizzar” day in Keene the Lancers won a 4-3 game. Nolan Lincoln continued his dominant season on the hill with an impressive 6 2/3 innings of 8 K, 1 BB, 3 R, 1 ER baseball. He had all of his pitches working yesterday and kept a talented Keene team off the bases for most of the day. The Lancers lead 40 going into the bottom of the sixth when the home umpire was struck with a straight fastball to the arm. He was forced to leave the game. During the long layoff the teams had to stay as ready as possible. The game resumed and the Blackbirds put up 3 runs, 1 earned. Nolan was hit in the hand with a hot-shot to the hand and was forced out of the game in the bottom of the 7th. Luke Marsh came in to collect his second save of the year.
At the plate the Lancers were lead by Zack Luongo (2 hits and 2 rbi) and Brandon Fish (2 hits, on base 4 times). It was a weird day all around and one we are glad is finally over! Now time to focus on Pinkerton.
