Nashoba’s DI Baseball State Championship Run Falls Short

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

 

Nashoba's Division I state championship run fell just short.

The Central Mass champion Nashoba baseball team fell in the state finals of the Division I state baseball tournament, losing to Bridgewater-Raynham by a score of 4-0 at LeLacheur Park in Lowell on Saturday.

Memorable Season

Although the Chieftains couldn't cap off its remarkable playoff run with a state title victory, they have nothing to hang their heads about. Nashoba won the Mid-Wach B League title, before capturing its first ever Central Mass title, beating a Cinderella team in seventh-seeded Leominster with a walk off 2-1 victory to win the sectional championship.

Overpowering

Bridgewater-Raynham played a solid game from start to finish, as their starting pitcher, senior Mike Bruemmel, was nearly unhittable, taking a no-hitter into the eighth inning in an impressive complete game effort to clinch the state title for his team. Nashoba's Jack Sarnoski broke up the no-hit bid in the eighth, trying to spark his team one last time.

However, Bridgewater-Raynham was able to get ahead early and they never coughed up the lead. Bruemmel helped his own cause in the third inning, lacing a single to give his team a 1-0 lead. Bridgewater-Raynham also plated two runs in the fourth to make it a 3-0 game, before adding an insurance run in the ninth, giving themselves a four-run lead.

Nashoba's two ace senior pitchers, Drew Foster and Sarnoski, combined to go the distance in the losing effort. Foster, who picked up the victory in the Central Mass title game, started for the Chieftains and scattered six hits over seven innings pitched. Sarnoski came on in relief of Foster and surrendered one run over two innings of work, striking out two Bridgewater-Raynham hitters.
