Baseball Pats bats go quiet on offense in recent losses

  After a huge win at Lynn Classical last week, the Revere High School baseball team was unable to carry the momentum of that victory into their next two games. The Patriots were edged in a 2-0 non-league loss to Cambridge Rindge & Latin last Saturday at home and dropped a 6-1 decision at Lynn English in a Greater Boston League (GBL) tilt on Monday.

  Revere mustered just two hits in the loss to Cambridge. Patriots starting pitcher Chris Cassidy probably deserved a better fate, as he hurled six strong innings and didn’t allow an earned run. Cassidy surrendered four hits and walked four while striking out five. Freshman reliever Brendan Sack fared well in his one inning of work by giving up no hits and fanning a batter.

  Both Revere hits came in the bottom of the second inning when Domenic Boudreau and Sal DeAngelis both singled. But the Patriots failed to score and Cambridge pitching pretty much kept them quiet the rest of the way.

  Boudreau was the lone Patriot to sparkle offensively in the loss at English. He swatted two hits and drove in Revere’s lone tally. The Patriots managed just four hits total. They defeated English by a 6-2 count when the two teams battled each other back in April.

  Revere, which was 6-5 overall on the season as of midweek, now has three losses in league play and is tied with English for third place in the GBL. The Patriots took on Medford in a league battle at home on Thursday, and then host Mystic Valley on Friday and Boston Latin on Monday, May 9.

  League statistics that were published at the end of April showed Mike Popp third in the GBL in hitting with a .417 average. Andrew Leone was close behind at .389 and Sack was hitting .353. Kyle Cummings was among the leaders in the pitching category. He stood at 3-0 with an impressive 1.38 earned run average.
