Deloury, Andover feast in Granite State

Deloury, Andover feast on New Hampshire's finest; set sights on MVC next

(Continued)

The mound rotation of Ryan Moloney (2.07 ERA), Tom Corey (1.70) and Rob Del Signore (0.41) has been rolling over people of late. To put things into perspective, Londonderry opponents have scored 30 runs total in the Lancers’ 11 games, three fewer than Londonderry put up on Wednesday.

Lancer talk II

Five straight wins have Lawrence High baseball prospects riding high, especially after knocking off Billerica and UMass Lowell-bound ace Max Frawley this week.

We all figured Lawrence would be able to throw the baseball some, and Joan Vargas has not disappointed.

With infielders like Edison Urena, dynamic Elvis Peralta and Co., the Lancers can pick it defensively, too.

But lately, they’ve been clubbing the baseball.

Peralta come out of the gate mashing and is 21 for 44 on the year, having hit safely in 10 of 13. Lately, it’s been contagious.

Jose Abreu is 7 for 20 with seven RBIs in the last five. In the same stretch, Javi Morales is 8 for 16 with 8 RBIs. After a 1 for 15 start, senior Jose Martinez is in a 9 for 19 groove. Brahiam Ortega and Elvis Batista continue to lengthen the attack, too.

Those of us who were unwise enough to predict a Billerica runaway in the MVC Small had best keep an eye on the Lancers, now 8-5 overall and 6-3 in the league.

Royal slide

A fourth-straight one-run loss has second-year Georgetown High coach Justin Spurr scratching his head a little bit.

Remember, the Division 4 defending EMass champs came in with a five-game win streak to end last spring and then ripped off seven victories in a row to open this year.

Since then ... one-run frustration.

“Every single game it’s been one inning of frustration, too,” said Spurr. “My only concern is that we can’t find a way to win. We battle back and battle back, and we just can’t get over that hump.”
