The Revere High School baseball team has rediscovered some of its offense over the past few games. That discovery helped lead to a playoff-clinching 5-2 road win over the previously undefeated East Boston Jets Monday. East Boston entered the game at 15-0 before the Patriots were able to put an end to the Jets’ bid for a perfect season.
Domenic Boudreau pounded out three hits to lead the Patriots, who improved to 10-6 overall. Among his three hits, Boudreau had two doubles and drove in a run. Chris Cassidy ended up with two knocks, a walk, and scored twice. Chris Cecca and Kyle Cummings collected an RBI each.
The win catapulted Revere into the postseason tournament for the second season in a row. The Patriots host Medford in a Greater Boston League (GBL) game on Saturday, and travel to play Boston Latin next Monday evening.
Revere faced off against Everett in a league matchup on Monday and came away with a 4-0 shutout road victory. Boudreau was once again the offensive leader with two hits and a run driven in.
Also contributing to the offensive cause were Chris Cecca with a hit and an RBI and Cummings with a hit and a run batted in. Brendan Sack got the start on the mound for the Patriots and performed very well to earn the shutout win. He went the distance, allowing just three hits and fanning five hitters.
Head Coach Mike Manning praised the team’s defensive play after Monday’s victory. “[The] defense was on point. [There were] run saving plays made all over the diamond,” he said. Revere committed no errors in the game.
