Matt Donato Makes the Road Trip for Walpole a Homey One

By Matt Feld (@Mattyfeld612)

By the time the game ended, Matt Donato had Walpole feeling right at home.

With the Rebels and Xaverian tied at two in the bottom half of the eighth, Donato drilled a walk-off single to left center field to send Walpole home with a 3-2 win over the Hawks on Tuesday afternoon at Xaverian Brothers High School.

Despite it being Walpole’s home game, the game was played at Xaverian due to field conditions at Walpole High.

How Far Can Celtics Fans Expect their Team to Go?

By Adam Lowenstein (@StatsAdam)

With Boston heading into a key Game 2 tonight against Milwaukee, Cleveland facing an early 0-1 hole in its series against Indiana, and the Sixers tied with Miami, it seems like the East might be as up for grabs as it has been in some time.

So, can the beaten and battered Celtics turn this season into a run to the NBA Finals?

Or, can the Celtics at least defend their way to back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals appearances?

BC High Breaks out the Bats to Take Down St. John's

By John McGuirk (@PatsFan1313)

SHREWSBURY, Mass. -- In its first two games this season, BC High had showed minimal signs of an offense. In spite of some solid pitching, the Eagles had become inconsistent at the plate in the early going, scoring just two total runs.

On Saturday morning, with temperatures climbing into the mid-60s, so too, did BC High's bats warm up. Banging out eight hits and driving in runners during key opportunities, the Eagles were able to upend St. John's (Shrewsbury) 4-1 at Pioneer Field.
