Newburyport pitching, Rice too much for Haverhill

HAVERHILL — The Newburyport American Legion Post 150 team has been plagued by mistakes this month, but it played solid baseball yesterday at the expense of Haverhill Post 4.

Behind the pitching of Joe LeVasseur and Georgetown’s David Ingraham, Newburyport shut out Post 4 6-0. LeVasseur, who played at Bishop Fenwick, allowed five hits and struck out 10 in six innings and Ingraham mopped up in the seventh.

Groveland’s Zach Rice, a St. John’s Prep graduate headed to UMass Amherst, led the offense with two hits, a run scored and an RBI while Rich Fecteau was 2 for 3.

Eight of the starters had base hits for Newburyport (4-3, 2-3 in District 8).

For Post 4, Shane Surrette started and took the loss.

George Gauthier had a single and double in defeat and Matt Keefe pitched well in relief.

Salem nips Rochester

Matt Grant had two hits, including the the game-winning RBI in the seventh as Salem Post 63 edged Rochester 7-6. Cameron knocked in Timberlane teammate Jake Cameron for the final run. Nate Baker added a two-run double for Salem (3-0) and C.J. Beaulieu got the win with three innings of relief of Mitch Dufton, who started and gave up two runs in five innings.

Vargas carries Lawrence

Lawrence Legion Post 15 beat Peabody 2 -0 behind the pitching of Joan Varges, who allowed just three hits and struck out nine.

Lawrence scored both runs in fourth inning and held Peabody scoreless with perfect defense.

The key hits for Lawrence were by David Quezada and Frank Santos.

Gerossi saves Post 9

LONDONDERRY — Derry Post 9 pushed a run across in the top of the ninth to slip past Londonderry 7-6 in American Legion action yesterday.

Chris Gerossi opened the inning with a double and later scored the winning run when Grant Wagner drew a walk with the bases loaded.

Gerossi also pitched the ninth to get the save.
