Our Wilcox Energy Warriors strode to a convincing 8-1 victory over a spirited Clinton team. The day, and the mound, belonged to the young southpaw from the southside of town, Jackson Bonner, hurling 5 1/3 innings, only allowing a smattering of Clinton baserunners throughout the affair, amidst 8Ks. Ryan Sacco came in to shut the door in the top of the 6th, sealing the W.
Behind Bonner was the absolutely stellar defense by Sacco, Squillacote, Velez, Dylan Cocchiola, and others. Not many balls left the infield, yet the attentiveness of Joseph St. Onge, Travis Bloom, Liam Cassidy, and others was on full display - a true team W!
It wasn't Casey at the bat, but it was big #35, Ryan Sacco, hitting a single, double, and triple on his way to knocking in 4. Elijah Velez was never not on base making things happen all afternoon long. Great ABs by Valen Clark and Michael Livernoche uplifted the team's spirit further and the return of Drewski, Drewmanji, Drewbacca himself, Drew Cocchiola kept everyone fired up with his patented enthusiasm for the game.
Finally, a mad base dasher emerged and this reporter would be remiss to not retell that the sliding stylings of one Ryer Furcolo were only outdone by his amazing hair and infectious smile. Ryer "Smooth Slide'n" Furcolo had a great day out there, reminding us all that hard work and quality practice shows up on the diamond!
A lovely team win, well done boys!!!
Warriors on 3... 1,2,3 Warriors!!!
