WILMINGTON, MA — Below is a recent Wilmington Little League game summary.
AA: Braves vs. Astros — Wednesday, May 3, 2017
On a cool evening in the sort-of frozen tundra of the Glen Road baseball fields, the Double-A Braves and Astros battled it out. The Braves got off to a fast start and played a strong game throughout. Colin Dwyer, Chase Kennedy, and Luke DeProfio (who happens to be an outstanding basketball player as well) were three of the players who helped power the Braves’ offense. Jack McLennon, Matt Driscoll, & Warren Sullivan played especially well in the field and Jake Antczak made some great pitches during his first outing as a pitcher. Nolan Richards always contributes in all parts of the game as well. John Roofe, Mikey Taylor, and James Passerini were the Astros’ three pitchers, each recording strikeouts during their time on the mound. Kyle Bridge and Evan Cummings made several nice plays in the field, joining Erin McCarthy, Chris DeFilippo, Kevin Pruslin, Roofe, Passerini, and Taylor with strong defensive games. Joey Fennelly did his usual great job behind the plate and added a single. Justin Fricia also had a hit and Mikey Taylor had the bomb of the game with a shot deep to right field. Connor Sullivan and Quinn Stockman were among many other offensive contributors, reaching base several times between them. Pruslin made an outstanding defensive play to end the game, snaring a sharp ground ball at second base and tossing it to Roofe at first.
