The offense has struggled in recent games for the Revere High School baseball team. But the Patriots got the bats rolling in Wednesday’s 8-1 Greater Boston League (GBL) victory at Malden. The win left Revere at 7-3 in league play.
Captains Chris Cassidy and Mike Popp produced solid games with five hits and four RBIs between them. Cassidy stroked three hits, including a double, scored twice, and drove in two. Popp provided two hits, including a two-bagger, along with two RBIs and three stolen bases.
On the mound, Domenic Boudreau took home the win by hurling five-and-two-thirds innings and allowing just three hits and one run. He also finished with four Ks. The Patriots improved to 8-6 overall with the victory.
The Malden game was a refreshing change of pace for the Patriots, who had been involved in numerous tight, low-scoring affairs recently. On Monday, Revere found itself in a 0-0 tie through four innings against Boston Latin before the visiting Wolfpack broke it open and eventually notched a 5-2 win.
The bats did make some noise last Friday in a 5-3 home victory over Mystic Valley. Cassidy, Boudreau and Sal DeAngelis each drove in a run and starting pitcher Ollie Svendson went six innings to earn the win. He gave up just three hits and fanned three. Kyle Cummings, who has been perhaps the team’s best pitcher, tossed an inning in relief, allowing a run on two hits, to end up with the save.
The Patriots resume action on Monday, May 16, when they travel for a GBL matchup with Everett. They’re on the road again next Wednesday, May 18, for a rematch against Boston Latin.
