Triton reaches Spofford final with 6-1 win over Georgetown

Pitcher Devin Parsons is all smiles after a win against Georgetown

Jared Berardino (3 RBI)

(Georgetown MA) “This was fun today,” said Triton coach Ryan McCarthy after his Vikings defeated Georgetown, 6-1, on Saturday afternoon.

Triton recovered nicely after being eliminated from the post-season on Thursday.

The Vikings (8-11) may not be in the MIAA tournament but they will be in the finals tomorrow of the Spofford Tournament against Pentucket at 2PM.

The Royals (5-13) face Newburyport in the Spofford consolation game at 11AM.

Georgetown went up 1-0 in the second on an RBI double by Jake Adamsky, but Triton responded in the third inning with four runs to take the lead for good.

Senior Devin Parsons pitched a complete game, six-hitter, notching six strikeouts for the Vikings.

“My curve was real strong in the beginning,” said Devin afterwards.  “I got my second wind later in the game and had a good fastball at the end.”

Jack Tummino and Brendan Willis

Devin (New England College commit) collected all of his six K’s in the final four innings. It was his second win of the season.

“We didn’t make the plays when we needed to,” said Georgetown coach Phil Desilets post-game.  “Things just snowballed on us.”

Rough day in the field (3 errors) for All-CAL shortstop Brendan Willis.  The senior did turn in a terrific stop (and throw) to end a Vikings’ threat in the fifth inning.

“Brendan is a 4-year starter, and no one wanted to win this weekend more than he did,” explained Coach Desilets.  “Knowing him, he’ll be great tomorrow.”

Triton senior Jack Tummino’s speed played a big part in the 4-run third.  Jack beat out a grounder to deep short to reach base.  Later, he scored the Vikings first run by scoring from third on another grounder to short.

1B Kyle Odoy snags the final out

Cael Kohan singled in Jaren Berardino in that productive third to give Triton a 2-1 lead.

The other two Triton runs in the third were tainted; Brendan Willis error and starter Cam Martin balk.

Next inning the Vikings added two more runs against Royals reliever Patrick Sedgwick.  The big hit for the team from Byfield was junior Jared Berardino’s single to center driving home teammates Shane Rooney and Cam Gilroy.

“We executed offensively,” said Triton coach McCarthy.

The Vikings finished with ten hits.  Cam Gilroy, Tyler Godfrey, and Cael Kohan each had two hits.

Jared Berardino paced Triton with three RBI.

Colin Nally (3B)

Evidence that it might not be Georgetown’s day appeared the second inning.  First batter Ethan Block singled but then was thrown out stealing.  A single (Tim Chianca) and a double (Jake Adamsky) followed producing a run.

Triton starter Devin Parsons ended the Georgetown threat in the second getting a fly out (Justin Ziolkowski) and a ground out (Chris Swensen).

The Royals were a hit away from making things tight in the 5th inning.  They loaded the bases with two hits (Justin & Chris) and a walk (Brendan Willis) with two outs.  Devin escaped again.  This time he got Nick Gaeta to ground out to 2B Cam Gilroy.

Triton third baseman (Shane Rooney) started the Georgetown 6th with an error but finished the inning with a slick backhanded stab (and throw).

The Vikings had lost seven of their last eight games before today’s victory.

Georgetown has now lost 11 of their last 13 games.  They have a makeup game next Saturday plus tomorrow’s matchup against Newburyport.

Coach Phil Desilets

“We’ll come out and work hard tomorrow,” said Coach Desilets.  “We lost during the season on a walk-off to Newburyport.”

Triton will have its work cut against Pentucket.  The Vikings have been shut out twice (4-0, 2-0) by the Sachems.  Peter Cleary, Andrew Melone, and Ethan Hunt have limited Triton to a total of three hits in those two games.

Coach McCarthy: “(Devin) Parsons pitched a great game.  He’s a senior and it’s the last time he’ll pitch for us.  He was in the zone today.”

Coach Desilets: “Credit Triton for coming back the way they did after getting knocked from the tournament a few days ago.”

Devin Parsons: “We were looking to have fun today.  I have been playing with these boys since Little League.”

Triton wins 5th straight defeating Amesbury 6-4

Catcher Tyler Godfrey and pitcher Jared Berardino celebrate a win

Drew Parsons tagged out by pitcher Blake Bennett in the first inning

(Amesbury MA) Triton pushed their winning streak to five with a 6-4 win over Amesbury on Saturday afternoon in Cape Ann League baseball.

The Vikings (5-4) tallied four runs in the sixth inning to erase a 4-2 deficit.

Triton batted around in that decisive 6th inning.  Cael Kohan tied the game with a two-run single to left center.  Later in the inning, Kyle Odoy delivered the go-ahead runs with a double to left.

Blake Bennett drove in all four of the Indians’ runs.  Three crossed on his long home run to center in the third inning.  A two-out error by Drew Parsons extended that inning and gave Blake the chance to bat with two on.

Cael Kohan

Blake came up in Amesbury’s final inning with a runner (Logan Burrill) on base.  This time around Triton centerfielder Jack Tummino looked to be playing back somewhere in New Hampshire and was able to catch Blake’s long blast in his direction.

Cael Kohan started for Triton.  After Cael loaded the bases with one out in the fourth inning, Coach Ryan McCarthy brought in Jared Berardino.  In a turning-point moment, Jared got Tucker Molin to ground into a 1-2-3 inning-ending double play to keep Amesbury from enlarging a 3-2 advantage.

Amesbury (5-5) was at times its own worst enemy.  Starter Blake Bennett yielded six walks and four of them scored.  Triton’s first two runs scored on wild pitches.  Twice innings ended for the Indians on the bases.  In the third, Derek Doherty was picked off first by Cael Kohan.  In the fifth, catcher Tyler Godfrey threw out Blake trying to steal third.

The Vikings scored a run in the second.  Cam Gilroy walked, stole second, and reached third on a fielder’s choice.  A wild pitch brought him home and gave Triton a 1-0 lead.

Blake Bennett rounds third

Amesbury took a 3-1 advantage in the third with Blake Bennett’s homer.  At first it looked as if Blake would only get a ground-rule double but the umpires gathered with the coaches and it was ruled to be a home run.

Triton got a run back in the fourth.  The Vikings loaded the bases with two outs before a wild pitch scored Tyler Godfrey to make it 3-2.

In the fifth inning a Logan Burrill double into the left field trees was followed by a Blake Bennett single to left producing a run and a 4-2 lead.

Triton won the game in the sixth.  The Vikings were helped along by three walks and a wild pitch. Cam Gilroy, Tyler Godfrey, Jared Berardino, and Cael Kohan were the run scorers.

The Indians have played all their home games at Town Park because the high school field is water logged.  Amesbury is fortunate to have an alternate field.  I read today that some of the schools in Maine have only been able to play two games so far because of the weather.

Left field at Town Park

What could go wrong in left field at Town Park?  In the picture you can see trees, branches, folks in lawn chairs, a car, and a dog all in the playing area.

Both coaches, before the game, considered me bad luck because I’ve only seen them lose this season.  I’m flattered to think that I have such an influence!
