LITTLETON — The Bromfield baseball team played well in all departments as they posted an impressive 7-2 win over Littleton in MidWach D action. The game was scheduled to be played in Harvard but was moved to Littleton because of the Trojans’ home field not being available.
Toby Frost was the catalyst in the victory, with a rock-solid route-going effort. The junior righthander allowed two earned runs and seven hits while striking out seven and walking two over seven innings.
”This was Toby’s best effort of the season,” said Bromfield coach Paul Harasimowicz. “He was in control throughout and got stronger as the game progressed. By throwing strikes he made it easy for our defense in the game.”
The Trojans scored all the runs they would need in the top of the second. Phil Lewis singled, Cam Holland walked and Mike Hulit walked to load the bases and set the table, before Rob Southworth ripped a bases-clearing double. Southworth eventually came around to score to make it 4-0.
Bromfield added single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings to pull away, all keyed by doubles, followed by clutch singles.
In the third, Joseph Galeski doubled and scored on Holland’s single.
In the fourth, Southworth doubled and scored on Galeski’s single.
In the fifth, Nick Kimball doubled and came around on Southworth’s single.
”We made the plays defensively and prevented a Littleton team that has comeback capabilities from putting together big innings,” said Harasimowicz. “Toby set the tone by throwing strikes and keeping the defense on its toes. We are also starting to hit the ball more consistently.”
Southworth led the Bromfield offense with three hits and four runs-batted-in. Galeski and Lewis each added a pair of hits.
The Trojans improved to 4-9 overall and 1-5 in MidWach D play with the win.
