Massachusetts High School Baseball - Abington defeats East Bridgewater
(May 10, 2011: Abington, MA 02351) Spectators at Tuesday's league battle between the Abington Green Wave (Abington, MA) and the visiting East Bridgewater Vikings (East Bridgewater, MA), saw Abington's baseball squad knock off East Bridgewater by a count of 11-3.
Coming up next, the Green Wave play the Cardinal Spellman Cardinals (Brockton, MA) in a non-league battle, on Friday, May 13. Abington will attempt to move on its 12-1 season record. The Cardinals enter the battle with a 9-7 record after their 3-0 league win over St. Mary's (Lynn, MA).
The Vikings now possess a 6-6 record. They take the field next when they travel to Carver for a South Shore battle on Thursday, May 12.
EB was unabale to negotiate the ridiculous wind and the strike zone in a sloppy game against Abington. Too many fly balls were dropped by EB fielders, and too many 3-1 and 3-2 counts led to EB pitchers having to throw fast balls down the middle. DeAndrade pitched well in the loss and deserved better, and freshman Mike Kelly looked promising in relief.
