Whittier Tech baseballers bow out

Middleboro, errors end Whittier's dream season

(Continued)

Unfortunately, the Cats would only muster only four hits for the day, including sophomore Ralph Francesconi’s single in the fourth, plating Jaylin Deveau with Whittier’s lone run.

It was hardly enough against a band of Sachems that pounced on every mistake the Cats made with a clutch hit of their own.

“(Whittier starter Devan Doucette) didn’t pitch badly, but we just made too many mistakes behind him,” said Boland. “You can’t give four and five-out innings to good teams like this. It just wasn’t our day. We didn’t play well at all.”

Only two of the nine runs allowed by Doucette, a senior who stepped into the spotlight this spring helping the Cats to a perfect run through the CAC at 13-0, were earned.

He fanned one and allowed four hits to go with the six walks.
