Everett baseball looks to bounce back against Revere, Charlestown during school vacation week
It was its last game before the start of spring school vacation week, but things didn’t go too well for the Everett High School baseball team (1-3), which was doubled up by Lynn English on April 12 in Lynn, 10-5. Despite being off from school this week, the Everett boys are still working with scheduled games against Revere on April 19 (after press deadline) and host Charlestown today (April 21), starting at 11 a.m.
The game against the Bulldogs started out well for the Crimson Tide. The visitors jumped out to an early 3-0 in the top of the first on a two-run single by senior Matt Turilli, but they were unable to hold the lead for long after giving up four when the home team came to the plate for the first time.
Junior Alex Lara pitched four innings, and only allowed two earned runs. Turilli led his teammates on offense with two hits.
“It was another game where early defensive miscues cost us some outs,” said coach Joel Levine. “Offensively, we left nine runners on base. We were unable to come up with the big hit while the game was close throughout the middle portion of the game.”
“Once again, our pitching was [good], but if we can only clean up our defensive game, as well as come up with some timely hits, we will be in every game we play throughout the rest of this season,” added Levine.
The Tide is looking to even its record this week against aforementioned Revere and Charlestown. The game against the non-league Townies will once again take place this morning (April 21) in Charlestown, beginning at 11 a.m.
