Key base hits and strong pitching.
That was the combination that led the Arlington High School baseball team to Saturday’s 5-1 victory over visiting Brewster in Freedom Plains.
Dan Lowndes (double) and Tyler Bruno each contributed two hits for the Admirals, who improved to 7-1 on the season. Four other Arlington hitters added an RBI single apiece.
“We were fortunate enough to get some timely hitting early,” Arlington head coach Al Hammell said. “Joe DeRosa and Mike Pascoe did the job from there.”
Arlington’s junior starting pitcher, DeRosa threw six innings, scattering three base hits while striking out five batters and giving up a run. Pascoe, a freshman, threw a scoreless seventh to pick up his first varsity save.
Brewster fell to 2-6 overall.
Hammell said Saturday’s victory was “a well-played game,” and it will give his Admirals momentum heading into Tuesday’s game against visiting Somers.
“We just want to keep it rolling.”
