Upset Victory for 18A

Lynnfield Blue 18A

Lynnfield Blue 18A Squad Downs First-Place Marblehead

Tianna Dawe struck out 11 batters and allowed only two earned runs, while the Lynnfield Blue 18A bats came alive in a 9-6 victory over the first-place Marblehead Magicians Red on Wednesday, August 3.

The defense was solid overall as catcher Allie Wing threw out two runners attempting to steal second, and shortstop Rachel Badger and first baseman Hayley O'Brien manned their posts flawlessly.

At the plate, everyone who started the game had at least one hit. Alex Ross hit a booming two-run triple to right field in the four-run fifth, while Badger, O'Brien and Kelly Dillon each reached base three times. Leigh Guerra and Kendyl LaConte also had run-scoring hits in the game. Visiting Lynnfield was aggressive and smart on the bases all game, racking up a number of steals and constantly taking the extra base when they could.

Lynnfield jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first on singles by Wing and O'Brien and a two-out double by Dillon. In the second, LaConte drove in Badger with a hard line-drive single against Marblehead's pitcher, one of the state's best last year and a scholarship player heading into her freshman year of college. 

The Blue added two in the third when O'Brien singled and Dillon walked. Guerra knocked in O'Brien, and Dillon scored when on an errant throw to make it 5-0. 

Lynnfield had a few defensive lapses in the fourth, allowing Marblehead to pull within two, 5-3. But the visitors rallied in their next at-bat, scoring five and putting the game away. O'Brien once again started the fun, legging out an infield hit. Dillon, Guerra and Badger followed with singles, leading up to Ross's bases-clearing three-bagger.

Marblehead threatened in the seventh, scoring three unearned runs, but Dawe struck out the side to end the threat.

Sarah Tobin and Abby Berry also contributed to the victory. Absent for this game, but rounding out the roster, are Lucy Madden, Ashley Schumacher, Anissa Petrone, Emma Kelly, Kathleen Hamm and Taylor Tringali.

Lynnfield is 3-9 on the season, losing several close games along the way. The team caps its summer season with games Monday (8/8) at home and Wednesday at Marblehead against its other 18A team. Wing and O'Brien will represent the squad in the annual MiddleEssex all-star game Saturday, August 6.

Lynnfield Blue 18A Defeat Revere

Losing Streak Ends with 12-6 Win

The Lynnfield Blue 18A team broke open a tight game, scoring six runs in their final two at bats to earn a 12-6 victory over visiting Revere last night at LHS. Hayley O'Brien earned the win in the circle, allowing five runs (one earned) over five solid innings. Abbie Berry closed the game for the Blue, yielding one run and finishing the game with a perfect seventh.

Revere got off to a good start when Lynnfield native Chloe Shapleigh ripped a long homer to right field leading off the game. The Blue battled back in the bottom half of the first, scoring five times with the help of four walks and the first of Kathleen Hamm's two hits. Sarah Tobin, Taylor Tringali and Kelly Dillon scored, as did O'Brien and Hamm.

Revere scored twice in the second after two were out, but Lynnfield opened the lead to 6-3 when Alex Ross walked and stole her way to third, before scoring on a wild pitch. 

Revere picked up two more runs in the third to tighten the game to 6-5. The visitors tried to put the tying run in scoring position with two outs, but catcher Allie Wing fired a strike and shortstop Rachel Badger applied a quick tag to end the threat.

It stayed that way until the bottom of the fifth when the hosts scored three times. After Anissa Petrone reached on an error, hits by Berry (double), Lucy Madden and Leigh Guerra made it 9-5.

Lynnfield scored three more times in the sixth. Hamm smashed a single down the left field line and Wing walked. Singles by Kendyl LaConte, Ross and Berry helped complete the scoring.

Wing threw out two runners at second base in her five innings behind the dish and Badger and Tringali sparkled in the field at short and third, respectively.

Lynnfield is 1-5, though their five losses have come to teams with a combined record of 22-4. The Blue return to action with a home game at LHS on Monday.

Instant Classic for 18A

Newton Holds Off Lynnfield in Extras

The Lynnfield Blue 18A MiddleEssex team fell to 0-4 with a 6-5 loss to perennial powerhouse Newton Thursday night in one of the most entertaining, exciting summer softball games you'll see. Newton scored five runs in the top of the 8th inning, seemingly putting an end to a tense affair. But the Lynnfield girls rallied to score four runs in the bottom half and had the tying run on base when the visiting Lions got the final out.

Tianna Dawe hurled seven strong innings for Lynnfield, yielding only an unearned run in the first. Lynnfield tied it in the third when Leigh Guerra singled leading off and Rachel Badger followed with a perfect bunt to put runners on first and second. Lucy Madden's sacrifice moved the runners up and Guerra scored on a wild pitch.

In the fifth, Sarah Tobin tripled with one out, but was stranded at third.

Hayley O'Brien, who pitched six solid innings in a 4-2 loss to Gloucester the previous night, entered for Lynnfield in the eighth and was victimized by a combination of errors, bleeders and a couple of solid hits as Newton roared to a 6-1 lead in the extra frame.

The hosts didn't roll over, however. With Tobin on second per the international tiebreaker rule, Taylor Tringali laced a line drive that the third baseman snagged for the first out. Dawe and O'Brien walked to load the bases and Kelly Dillon ripped a two-strike pitch past the first baseman to plate two. O'Brien scored when a pickoff attempt sailed into left field, tightening the score to 6-4. Kathleen Hamm's sacrifice fly to right drove home Dillon with the fifth Lynnfield run. Guerra reached on a dropped third, but the game ended when the Newton second baseman snared Badger's hard grounder and flipped to the shortstop for the third out.

The teams get back together in Newton for a game under the lights (7:15 start) Monday night at Abermarle Field in Newton. The Blue's other game this week is Thursday at home vs. Revere.
