The Eagle-Tribune

---- — Recent Pentucket graduate Josh Creamer was the ultimate sparkplug for Newburyport Legion Post 150 last night.

The Nor’Easter second baseman was 2 for 2, walked twice, scored three runs, stole a base and drove in two runs as Newburyport downed host North Andover 7-2.

That made a winner of 2012 Pentucket grad Corey McNamara and raised Post 150’s record to 15-7-1. McNamara gave up only two hits and one earned run, didn’t walk a batter and struck out eight.

Helping out offensively was Georgetown’s Colby Ingraham, who was 2 for 4 with an RBI.

For North Andover, starting pitcher Austin Flynn had a double and scored a run.
