Nashoba Baseball Earns Berth in Division I State Final
Saturday, June 15, 2013
Nashoba, who has only lost three games overall on the whole season, was tabbed the top seed for the Central Mass tournament, powering its way through the competition, until the Blue Devils of Leominster gave them a fight in the title game.
Senior right-handed pitcher Drew Foster put the team on his back in the Central Mass title game, throwing a complete game on the mound, allowing just one run, and driving in the game-winning run at the plate, hitting a sacrifice fly with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth.
Chieftains keep rolling
Arguably Nashoba's ace, Jack Sarnoski, a senior right-handed pitcher, put on quite the display on Wednesday night in the state semifinals against Westfield at Tivnan Field in Worcester. Sarnoski threw 7.2 innings on the mound for the Chieftains, picking up the win in a tight 3-2 victory. During the regular season, Sarnoski compiled a perfect 5-0 record, striking out 40 batters in 40 innings pitched and posting a 1.07 earned run average.
Nashoba will face Bridgewater-Raynham at 3:30pm at LeLacheur Park in Lowell on Saturday afternoon for the state title.
