Saints survive Hope
PAWTUCKET – In a game where one of the weaker teams in Division II gave the St. Raphael baseball team all that it could handle, the Saints pulled out a 10-9 win over Hope on Saturday.
The Blue Wave came in with a 1-11 record, but they certainly didn’t look the part of a team that’s residing in the bottom of the division. Hope went up 9-4 in the top of the fourth inning and took a 9-8 lead heading into the bottom of the sixth.
For SRA, the road to avoiding what would have been a tough loss began with a double by junior Jonathan Quinn and a single by freshman Tyler Tremblay, who stole second. A groundout by freshman Harold Fernandez brought in Quinn as the tying run before junior Tim Breen delivered the go-ahead hit with two down.
Quinn came on to pitch the seventh and struck out the side to earn his third save of the season.
At the plate, he finished 3-for-4 with three runs scored. Fernandez went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and four RBI while Breen went 2-for-4 with two RBI. Miles DeMacedo blasted a home run as part of the Saints’ four-run uprising in the fourth.
Now 11-4, the Saints go for the two-game sweep of the Blue Wave on Monday in Providence.
