Blue Sox Sweep Doubleheader Against SchoonersJuly 29, 2011 - New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) Holyoke Blue Sox
Eberle improved that average when he unloaded on a 2-0 pitch hitting it to dead center and over the fence for his sixth long ball of the season and first grand slam for the Blue Sox as a team as well. With that bases-clearing jack it made it 4-1 Holyoke, and it looked like the Blue Sox were going to cruise to another victory and a doubleheader sweep.
The Schooners (16-22) started fighting back in the second inning as Nicholas Ferraresi led off the inning with a double and he would score on a throwing error by catcher Tom Murphy cutting into the lead making it 4-2.
Mystic would pull within one run as Joe Hudson, who led off the third inning with a double, scored on a RBI groundout by Brett Doran, who drove in the first run of the game for the Schooners on a sacrifice fly as Hal Landers scored on that.
With the Schooners trailing 4-3 the Blue Sox were looking for some insurance and they got that in the fourth inning as Frank DeSico score on a throwing error by the Mystic catcher making it 5-3, which would be the final score.
Brett Yarusi came into the game after a 21 minute rain delay, and pitched a gem as he went four innings, getting the win improving to 4-1 on the season. Yarusi would record four strikeouts in his outing and the loss went to Hunter Brown and he falls to 0-4 on the season. The Blue Sox (26-13) are back in action tomorrow against the Mystic Schooners at 6:30 p.m. at Mackenzie Stadium.
