A's Emerge in Late Innings to Top Red Sox (May 13)
After being shut out for the first three innings of their Saturday evening matchup with the Middlesex Surgical Assoc Red Sox, the New England OB/GYN Athletics came alive in the late innings to notch a satisfying 7-3 victory.
Red Sox pitcher Declan Mahoney tamed the A's bats for the first three innings, giving up only three hits - singles by Dante Zermani and Will Fuller and a triple by Josh Lacey - and striking out four. The Red Sox then took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third, on a triple to right by Brennan McCarthy, followed by an RBI by Kumar Muniappan.
The A's answered with three runs in the top of the fourth, with Tommy Lampert and Lacey delivering key hits. However, in the bottom of the inning, the Red Sox tied the score at 3, on a single by Jack Siciliano, followed by an inside the park homer by Thomas Mackey.
The A's would not be denied, however. They put up two runs in the fifth, on a key two-out walk to Oliver Fanton, and a double by AJ Muse, who later scored on some crafty baserunning to put the A's ahead 5-3. The A's added two more insurance runs in the top of the sixth, on hits by Lampert and Antonio Zermani, who were driven in by Carson Muse and Fuller.
A's closer Lacey held the Red Sox scoreless for the final two frames to secure the hard fought victory. In addition to Siciliano (2 hits), McCarthy, and Mackey, hitting standouts for the Red Sox were Ryan Azzara and Gannon Austin, with catcher Dario Volo turning in the defensive play of the night, robbing A's speedster Connor Pandolph of a sure hit in the third.
