Sims debuts on the mound as Revere baseball team shows some promise

The Revere High School Patriots baseball team is still winless on the season, but all signs are pointing in the right direction. New Pat’s coach Ron Jordan is upbeat because his team has been in every game as of late, the most recent being in Wednesday’s 4-2 loss to Gloucester. In that game the Patriots discovered a new pitching talent and took a 2-0 lead into the sixth inning, but fumbled the advantage away via some untimely fielding errors.

“The kids have to finish a game,” said Jordan. “That’s been our story, not finishing. But I’m not going to complain. We debuted a sophomore pitcher and took the lead against a tough team.”

Sophomore pitcher Frank Sims went up against the Fishermen. He went six innings and gave up two runs on two hits. “He throws a lot of strikes and he throws hard,” said Jordan of his lefty pitcher. “It was the first chance we had to get him out there and I was hoping to get nine to 12 outs out of him, but they actually got really desperate. They started bunting to get on base. He has a lot to learn, but I like what I see.”

Revere took a 2-0 lead in the second inning off a two-run single by John Desimone.

“A lot of coaches have commended us after games,” Jordan said. “They saw what was happening in the last couple of years. Moral victories are nice, but they get old after a little while … We’re winless, but we’re handling it well. But it’s especially tough for the older kids to see their careers end like this. The positive is that we have a Memorial Day tournament at the end of the year in Wilmington. It gives us something to play for, even though we’re getting better every day.”


Lady Pats softball team earns key win against Gloucester

The Revere softball team finally put forth a complete performance, to the delight of head coach Joe Ciccarello. On Wednesday, Revere defeated Gloucester, 4-1, improving to 8-4 on the season.

“We started putting it together in this game, taking greater strides to being a seasoned team,” a satisfied Ciccarello said.

To boot, Revere performed at their best on alumni night. Former Patriots standouts Ally Hinojosa (Assumption), Gabriella Cammarata (Regis) and Kristina Stella (Mount Ida) were in the stands to cheer on their former team. “It was really special to have our alumni there,” Ciccarello said. “We showed them that Revere softball is still a force.”

Gloucester came into Wednesday night 8-2, but Revere thoroughly dismantled them.

Pitcher Olivia McManus, with the help of her fielders, kept the Fishermen to just one run. “She was dynamite, she hit her spots,” Ciccarello said. “Gloucester have good hitters but she kept them off balance. It was really important for us. She made them hit just under or just over so it was easier for us to make the plays on the field.”

Revere’s offense bolstered McManus’s pitching. In the third inning, down 1-0, Victoria Coreia singled then moved to second as Elizabeth Lake took first on a bunt. Jordan Sullivan doubled to bring home both Lake and Coreia to make it 2-1.

Then, in the fifth inning, Coreia belted a two-run shot out of the park to make it 4-1. “And that ball is still rolling,” Ciccarello said. “It got out of the park in a hurry.”

That Coreia homered in the fifth was significant, seeing as Gloucester had a chance to change the game completely in the top half of the inning. They loaded the bases, putting McManus into a jam.

With two outs, a Gloucester hitter sent a blast to the outfield corner, forcing Giana Berkowitz to track the ball down and make an over the shoulder catch. “Catch of the year,” said Ciccarello. “She got the game ball for that one … That was going to be bases-clearing. But she read it well, got a good jump on the ball.”

Revere now has momentum ahead of a clash against Waltham tonight and a Monday night game against Medford.

“No doubt Gloucester is good and we have to beat top teams in our division,” said Ciccarello. “But we’ve never really had all four aspects of the game working – hitting, pitching, fielding and base-running – we’ve always had just one. We proved to ourselves against Gloucester that we could do it … We knew we were building toward this. We kept talking about it. We’ve been good in practice and we have the talent. It was just a matter of doing it when the lights come on.”
