News and Announcements
Nate Sullivan lead the Lancers into May with a very strong pitching performance vs Merrimack today. Sully went 6 strong on 75 pitches today. Gave up 1 unearned run and kept pounding the strike zone! It was the correction the coaching staff was looking for after the miserable April start to the season.
At the plate Anthony Ferraro knocked in 3 rbi with a line double to right-center-field. Zack Luongo drove in 2 with a seeing-eye single and Rick Perry had two hits and an rbi on the day! The goal is to have a solid May that will lead us into a great June. Keep working and things will happen.
Get ready for a game vs South at 7 tomorrow night!
The 2018 Lancers have had a rough start to the season. With a team that has the potential this one has, it has been frustrating for LHS baseball.
The Lancers didn’t compete as they walked 12 batters today in 5 innings. Defensively it was a relatively clean game, but the pitching staff has to be competitive.
At the plate the boys couldn’t get too much going outside Nate Sullivan (2-2) and Rick Perry getting on base 3 times. There isn’t too much you can say after a game like today. The one benefit of only having one game during the week is that we can take a breather and refocus for the last 3/4 of the season. It is safe to say that we have underperformed to this point, but it is just as safe to say this group of players will figure things out and step up for the rest of the season!
The Lancers came out flat today against Concord and couldn’t overcome the early hole they dug. Too many free bases and mental mistakes lead to extra outs against a good club.
At the plate Anthony Ferraro had a very good day going 3-3 and playing solid defense at first base. Speaking of defensive gems- Andy Ross made a stellar catch in left that prevented a run and got the Lancers out of a tough spot!
Zach Luongo made his Varsity debut in relief to record 4 strike outs in 2 innings, while Dylan Walsh struck out 2 in just over an inning. Dakota Johnson got the start and couldn’t find it this time, but he will bounce back!
The Lancers have the ability to be a top team, they need to figure out how they want this season to go. Andover tomorrow, let’s see what we can do!
Rick Perry had a monster day at the plate and on the bases under the lights at Holman. He went 2-3, with 3 rbi, a home run, 2 stolen bases and 2 runs scored! The Lancers started to hit with runners in scoring position when Jake Bolduc hit a double down the line driving in 2! Andy Ross went 2-3 with an rbi along with Dylan Walsh (2-3, 1 rbi) the Lancers finally got to the BG pitching staff. Perry was the star though as his hit proved to be the decisive hit on the day.
Anthony Pirolli got the start and gave a gritty 6 and 2/3 inning performance, keeping BG off balance all day while he refined his spots. It was a great bounce-back game from the Spaulding game!
Defense has continued to be a strength overall, just need to cut down on self-inflicted wounds to really bring this team home!
Nice work boys!
The Lancers put forth another good effort, but lacked the big hit. On a day where LHS had one more hit than PA, 1 less strike out and the same amount of walks/errors- they couldn’t catch a break. The Lancers had no problem putting men on base, but they couldn’t drive them in. The Pinkerton defense played a solid game and the difference today was the big hit for them. Offensively the Lancers were not overwhelmed, but neither was Pinkerton. The score was 7-1, but the game did not play the way the final score indicated.
The Lancers will get back at it next week and just have to work to get to the point they know they can be at. Once the boys stop playing like they are afraid to make a mistake instead of being aggressive, we will see the promise of this group realized.
