Eagles shut out Scituate and Prout, advance to semis

Barrington facing Burrillville in best-of-three series

Posted

The Barrington High School baseball team has outscored its playoff opponents 22-0 in the first two rounds of the Division II tournament. 

But starting on Friday, the Eagles will face a new challenge, as they battle against Burrillville in a best-of-three semifinal series. 

Game One is Friday, June 18 at 3:30 p.m. at Barrington High School; Game Two is Sunday at 1 p.m. at Burrillville; and Game Three, if necessary, will be on Monday.

Burrillville opened its playoff run with a 3-2 win over Westerly in the preliminary round, and then defeated North Providence 11-1 in the quarterfinals. 

Barrington opened its playoffs with a 12-0 win over Scituate on Tuesday, June 15. The Eagles scored early and often — plating eight runs in the bottom of the first inning. Barrington's Bennett Durkin provided a key hit, crushing a bases-clearing double. George Promades pitched well for the Eagles in the victory, which ended after five innings because of the 10-run rule.

On Wednesday, June 16, Barrington hosted Prout and shut out the Crusaders 10-0. The Eagles scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning and four runs in the second to build a commanding lead. 

In the first inning, Jack Kriz smashed a two-out triple, and Harry Turner drew a walk. With two outs and two on, Ned Shapiro had a single to drive in Kriz. Matt Davis then delivered with a single to score Turner.

In the second inning, Andy Fletcher singled, and Gabe Tanous dropped a bunt and then beat out the throw to first. Aaron Brady's sacrifice bunt advanced the runners to second and third base. The Eagles then loaded the bases, and Kriz drove in two runs with a hard-hit single. The next batter, Turner, crushed a triple into the outfield fence, driving in two more runs. Durkin pitched well for the Eagles in the 10-0 victory.
