and kept them guessing. You
didn’t see a lot of good swings
against him. We made a cou-
ple of stellar defensive plays
behind him, too. It was a great
team effort overall.”
The Tanners followed up
D’Angelo’s effort over the
weekend with a 9-0 non-
league blanking of Malden on
Monday. Pitcher Pat Maqui-
re threw five innings to earn
his second win of the sea-
son, and Chris Gillen drove in
five runs with three hits. Pea-

tories – 6-1 at Danvers and 7-2
over Saugus – last week. No.
1 starter Jake Zeuli notched
the win over Danvers. Pea-
body was 3-0 in league play
as of early this week.
“We don’t want to get too
excited. We’re trying to be
even keel,” said Bettencourt
of his team’s strong start.
“We’re obviously happy with
the start but we’re not satis-
fied.We’re going to take it one
game at a time, one inning at
a time, one pitch at a time.We
want to keepmoving towards
our goal to play well in June.
The heartbeat of this team is
to be ready to play our best
in June.”
Peabody lefty Alex D’Angelo fanned five batters on his way to a perfect game shutout last
Saturday.
