Beaulieu fires no-hitter for Salem Legion

The draining humidity and heat certainly didn’t bother Salem Legion Post 42 pitcher C.J. Beaulieu last night.

Beaulieu, a rising senior at Salem High, threw a complete game (nine innings) no-hitter as Salem blanked Exeter 8-0. He struck out seven and walked just one.

Nick Shumski led the offense, going 3 for 4 with two RBIs while Ryan McCarthy and Jake White added RBI doubles as Salem improved to 8-8.

Wells wins duel

In a battle of staff aces, Methuen Post 122’s Andrew Wells outdueled Andover’s Alec Livingston on the way to a 4-1 victory in Legion play.

Wells allowed just three hits and struck out nine, while also getting help from centerfielder Cam Cyr, who made a huge diving catch to rob Post 8’s Andrew Selima with two men aboard. Wells improved to 4-0 on the season.

Livingston, meanwhile, allowed just one earned run and five hits while striking out five, with help from some slick play by Burton Deady at shortstop.

Methuen scored three runs in the third capped off by a Jonathan Pierce double and added an insurance run in the fourth with a Gary

Carbonneau RBI single.

Yaratz carries Derry

Josh Yaratz pitched eight strong innings, giving up just two earned runs as the Derry Legion Post 9 team clipped Dover 6-4, improving its record to 11-4.

Jamie Collins led the offense with two hits, which included a solo home run, and had two RBIs while Justin Bundzinski was 2 for 5 with a run scored and Matt Marchman, Pat Mahoney and Jeff Singster all had RBI hits.

Derry has three games remaining, against Rochester today, Salem Friday and Exeter Saturday before the playoffs.

Vargas, Rodriguez shine

Joan Vargas went all the way for the win and Louis Rodriguez paced the offense as the Lawrence Post 15 Legion team knocked off first place Newburyport 3-1.

Vargas struck out eight and was toughest in the clutch while Rodriguez had a triple and a two-out, two-RBI double for the winning runs in the bottom of the sixth.
