The "play-of-the-game" was a run-saving two-out diving stab (6th inning) of a well-hit NB groundball by Brian McSherry to his left that was heading up the right-field line with a runner on 2nd that would've tied the game ... recovering to beat the runner to the bag. Offensively Joey Freiday continued his torrid pace with a 2-run HR rocket and an RBI single while also walking twice ...

JV: Eddie Purcell was on the hill trying for his second win of the season in as many attempts to fall short losing to New Bedford 3-2. He gave up 2 hits and 2 earned runs, walked 4 and struck out 3 going the distance. The defense was a little less than it's usual allowing 2 errors and responsible for 1 run. The offense was below par with its Avg. of hits only producing 8 hits on 28 AB and 2 runs. The offense had its work cut out this day, having to play catch up from the beginning down 2-0 going into the bottom of the 1st. It wasn't until the 3rd with a Garrett Yurkins single, Brad Deflaminis single and then the Cam Polson 2RBI double that tied the game at 2.

Christina Cellini was robbed in the 7th by a running left fielder who stretched out and caught a loud line drive. Pat Whooley also crushed a ball to deep LC only to have the center fielder to make another spectacular running grab. But it was Brad Deflaminis who produced the loudest out of the game with a crushing blast to deep, deep center field only to be robbed just at the fence line by an amazing grab again by the center fielder. Final score New Bedford 3 BR 2. Freshmen: The Freshman baseball team pushed their record to 4-0 with a win over the Whalers. The offense was the story again by scoring 11 runs on 17 hits.

4/4 Varsity vs Durfee: B-R defeated Durfee in a very sloppily played game to improve to 2-0 on the season. B-R made several uncharacteristic mental errors and played uninspired baseball for stretches of the game but still made sure to take advantage of some poor Durfee pitching (11 walks including 4 batters hit by pitches) to win 10-3. Jack Connolly settled down after a shaky first inning (all 3 Durfee runs with 2 unearned) to pitch very well (14 Ks and only 1 hit after the 1st) over 6 innings for the victory.
