  The Revere High School baseball team was not entering Wednesday’s key showdown against Greater Boston League (GBL)–leading Lynn Classical on a high note. The Patriots had suffered a disappointing loss to Somerville on Monday and were looking to regroup.

  They did just that, as pitcher Kyle Cummings came through with another strong outing to help lead Revere to a 4-2 triumph over the first-place Rams at historic Fraser Field in Lynn. Cummings hurled all seven innings for the victory. He was touched for five hits and he struck out eight hitters.

  The Patriots dropped a close 3-1 affair to the Rams at home in the season opener several weeks back. Wednesday’s win seems to have established Revere as a bonafide league contender. It was just the second loss of the season for Classical.

  Clutch hitting is what got the Patriots over the top on Wednesday. Max Doucette brought in two runs with a hit, and Cummings aided his own cause with a hit and an RBI. Ollie Svendsen and Domenic Boudreau also contributed hits in the victory.

  The win improved the Patriots to 6-3 overall on the season. They host Cambridge in a non-league contest Saturday morning (scheduled 10 a.m. start) and then move on to face Lynn English on the road on Monday, May 2. The Patriots defeated the Bulldogs 6-2 at home earlier this season.

  In Monday’s 8-4 loss to Somerville, Revere allowed six unearned runs. After the game, Patriots Head Coach Mike Manning acknowledged that it’s hard to win when a team gives up that many unearned tallies. The Patriots did get a good offensive performance from Mike Popp, who smashed two hits, drove in a run and scored twice. He also stole two bases. Boudreau also got into the act with two RBI and two steals.
