Colonels trump Terriers
BRATTLEBORO -- Chris McAuliffe and Kevin Tao each drove in a pair of runs to help the Brattleboro Union High School varsity baseball team to a 7-2 victory over Bellows Falls on Tuesday night at Tenney Field.
"That's two straight for us," said BUHS coach Chris Groeger, whose team improved to 2-3 on the season. "I thought that our defense played very well again."
Jimmy Mills went the distance for the victory. The Brattleboro pitcher fanned six, walked two and gave up five hits.
"I was very happy with his outing," noted Groeger.
Hunter Smith, Rob Heileman and Chris McAuliffe all had two hits for the Colonels. Ryan McAuliffe went 1-for-2 with an RBI and Smith also drove in a run.
Groeger mentioned that after the first inning he felt like the Colonels had some really good at bats.
Austin Stack had two hits and Carson Fullam had an RBI for the Terriers, who took a 1-0 lead in the first before giving up four runs in the second. An RBI single by Smith and a two-run single by Chris McAuliffe did the damage for the hosts in that frame.
Zach Streeter started for Bellows Falls and Fullam pitched in relief.
Today, the 1-2 Terriers will host Hartford at 4:30 p.m. Brattleboro will play at Fair Haven on Saturday at 11 a.m.
