Baseball Pioneers remain undefeated after four games


The Lynnfield High School baseball team appears to be on a mission. They have played four games, and have won them all. Coach John Nelson couldn’t have asked for a better start.

The Pioneers have defeated Pentucket, 6-2 last Thursday, April 13, and then Masco two days later, 6-3 in their most recent conquests.

Fernando Gonzalez went the first six innings against the Sachems to record the victory. He issued just four hits and two runs, while fanning seven in a dominating performance.

Nick Aslanian followed him to the mound to preserve the victory, and pick up the much needed save.

Bryant Dana was the top gun offensively with three hits and two RBI. Mike Federico and Cooper Marengi each had two hits, while also being responsible for three more runs. Federico knocked in two, and Marengi drove home one to help secure the team’s third win of the season in as many games.

Kyle Hawes blasted a run producing triple to add more icing to the proverbial cake.

The win over Masco was significant, because it helped widened the gap between Nelson’s troops and their Cape Ann League rivals, who now have two losses in the early going.

The Lynnfield boys put their undefeated streak on the line Thursday, April 20, when they traveled to North Reading to take on another rival in the Hornets. They also took on Newburyport after press deadline, and will return home to face Rockport Saturday morning at 10 a.m.

The Pioneers will go up against host Hamilton-Wenham Tuesday, April 15, at 3:45 p.m., before Amesbury comes to town Thursday to square off against the locals at the same time.
