Delongchamp Fires Guardians to Seventh Straight Win

By John McGuirk (@Patsfan1313)

Pittsfield, Mass. – When the regular season began in early April, not many predicted the rough start by St. Peter-Marian. A team, who just a year ago captured the No. 1 seed in the Central Mass. Division 1 postseason tournament, opened the season a shell of its former self.

The Guardians lost their first three games, and by mid-April were staring at a 2-4 record. On top of that, in its annual grudge match against St. John's (Shrewsbury), SPM blew a late three-run lead. 

Then, as if a light suddenly switched on, SPM has been on a roll ever since. Following Friday night's 2-1 triumph over Pittsfield at Buddy Pellerin Field, the Guardians have now run off seven straight victories.

McGrath Continues Dominant Season, Shuts Down North Andover

By John McGuirk (@PatsFan1313)
North Andover, Mass. – If you solely take into account the number of quality wins, then Catholic Memorial has a legitimate argument to be in the Super Eight conversation.

Thursday night, the Knights added another substantial win to their growing resume as they downed North Andover, 5-1, behind a complete game from Colin McGrath. With the win, CM improves to 9-7, and now has victories over some of the top programs in the Bay State including Central Catholic, St. John's Prep, BC High, Xaverian, and North Andover.

Palowski Stays True to Ace Form, Shuts Down Reading

By Matt Feld (@Mattyfeld612)

Brookline, Mass. – Zack Friedman had been waiting for his ace in Jack Palowski to breakout. On Thursday afternoon, Palowski did just that.

On a humid Thursday afternoon Palowski threw six scoreless innings allowing just four hits while striking out 11 to guide Lexington to a 4-0 win over Middlesex League Liberty rival Reading at Parsons Field.

Palowski also helped himself out at the dish going 1-for-2 out of the number two spot in the order with a pair of RBIs.

High School Baseball Notes: Palowski Doing it All for Lexington, Belmont Following Similar Formula, Wellesley Building off Last Year's Run

If you hear anything pertaining to Lexington athletics, the odds are praise concerning multi-sport star Sal Frelick is right around the corner.

Frelick, the 2017 Massachusetts Football Gatorade Player of the Year for his play at quarterback, is once again proving his talents on the baseball field are equally as impressive. The Boston College bound shortstop, after getting off to what coach Zack Friedman labeled “a slow start for Sal’s standards,” is now batting well over .500. 

It is the performance on the mound by Jack Palowski, however, that is proving to be just as important in spring boarding Lexington into the Super Eight conversation.
