Everett will head to Somerville on Patriots Day morning to face the rival Highlanders

After beating Chelsea 14-4 to open up the season, the Everett High School baseball team (1-1) dropped a 12-1 decision to visiting Lynn Classical at Glendale Park Tuesday afternoon, April 9.

“We didn’t capitalize on our opportunities in this game,” said first-year head coach Malik Love. “We played great defense for five innings, but then we started to make some mistakes. We have to find a way to remain confident even after the opposition might have had a good inning against us. We were already defeated going into our last at-bat in this game.”

The Rams led, 3-0 through four innings, before they started to play situational baseball to widen the gap on the Everett boys. They appear to be ready to repeat as Greater Boston League (GBL) champs after winning 17 regular season games one year ago.

Alex Lara pitched four-plus innings against the Rams, before being relieved by Nordeivy Santana and Reinaldo Santiago, who each pitched one inning. They had help from their defense, specifically from centerfielder Albert Santana.

Isaiah Goffigan, who normally pitches or plays first base, had to go behind the plate on short notice against Classical, and he did really well back there, according to Love.

The Tide managed just two scattered hits in this game on singles by Charles Govostes and Lara.

As the weather is finally starting to warm up, the Tide is ready to play more than once a week. Following the Lynn English game at home Wednesday afternoon (April 10) after press deadline, the Tide will head to Somerville on Patriots Day (April 15) to take on the Highlanders at Trum Field, starting at 10 a.m. They will be at Revere two days later to face the Patriots at the same time.
