The Townies defeat Chariho during recent five-game winning streak

Posted

EAST PROVIDENCE — The East Providence High School  baseball team entered the final week of the regular season on a quite a roll, having won five games in a row to improve to 6-5 in Division I and 7-5 overall. The run included two key league wins over Chariho last week by the scores of 5-2 and 7-0.

The Townies were coming off a three-win week to close May. E.P. handed Cranston East an 11-4 defeat in a non-league outing then thwarted rival LaSalle 6-2 in a D-I game before defeating Cranston West 7-1 in another league contest.

Andrew Mongeon got the Townies going against the rival Rams, singling in the first to give E.P. the lead. In the fourth, E.P. scored three more times courtesy of a Mongeon and Brian Petsch singles and a Rob Lincoln double. Lincoln held LaSalle to just two hits and struck out six in his three inning stint on the mound. Brandon Landry and Jack McKnight closed out the win. Mongeon and McKnight also finished the day with three hits each.

In E.P.’s other win over the Falcons, Ilyas Torres broke a 1-all tie in the sixth when he singled to drive in a run.
Landry, Petsch, Manny Santos, McKnight and Lincoln each also drove in runs during the rally. Mongeon and Landry each had two hits in the game.
Elijah Barber took the win on the hill for the Townies. The left-hander went seven innings, allowing one run on four hits, striking out five and walking zero.

E.P. opened last week with the non-league win over the Thunderbolts, scoring six runs in the sixth inning to break open the game. Landry, Mongeon, Matt McDuff and Ziurel Vargas each had RBI-hits in the onslaught and Rob Lincoln drove in a run with a ground out. Barber, Santos, and McKnight each collected two hits to lead the locals.

Torres was the winning pitcher going four innings, allowing two hits and zero runs while striking out four and walking zero. Lincoln and McKnight entered the game out of the bullpen and helped to close out the game in relief.
