After Dom Boudreau gave a 13-strikeout pitching performance to help lead the Revere High School baseball team to its fourth win of the season, the Patriots followed that up by dropping two straight and falling under .500 in the process. The first of those was an 8-1 home setback last Friday against a very tough Weston team that is undefeated.
Weston had outscored opponents by a massive 52 runs (13 runs per game) entering last Friday’s contest. Given that statistic, the Patriots probably did well to keep the game as close as it was. Chris Cassidy’s infield hit led to Revere’s only run, as he came around on a stolen base and a Weston error. The run gave the Patriots a 1-0 lead that lasted three frames.
From there, Revere did very little against Weston starter Aiden Murphy, a freshman who went the distance and gave up just four hits. Revere starter Giancarlo Miro was tossing a strong game through three innings before the visitors got to him in the fourth inning. Cassidy, Ollie Svendsen and Pat Keefe also saw pitching duty for the Patriots as Weston scored eight unanswered runs and comfortably held on for the win.
One notable moment from the contest for Revere was Sonny Blazo collecting his first varsity base hit. A couple of other highlights included left fielder Dom Bellia throwing out a runner at home plate and center fielder Boudreau doing the same.
The Patriots were looking to get back on the winning track on Tuesday when they travelled to Trum Field to take on Greater Boston League foe Somerville. Starting pitcher Kyle Cummings had another good effort, but the Patriots struggled with the bats and managed one run in a 5-1 loss to the Highlanders.
Tuesday’s loss dropped Revere to 4-5 overall on the season. The Patriots played a league home game against Lynn Classical on Wednesday. They host Lynn English on Monday, May 1, and go back on the road to face Medford on Wednesday, May 3.
